The case has "been placed on security hold," Lieutenant Fred Corral tells Us. "No information is to be released on either decedent at this time."

As previously reported, Walker and his friend Roger Rodas were killed on Saturday afternoon when their Porsche Carrera GT slammed into a pole and was engulfed in flames. An investigation into what caused the fatal accident is ongoing, but officials are reportedly focused on speed as a possible factor.
