The Clark County coroner says it could be two or three more weeks before he releases his report on the sudden death of Las Vegas entertainer Danny Gans.

Coroner Mike Murphy said Thursday that toxicology and microscopic reports have been submitted to a medical examiner, who has not yet determined a cause and manner of death.

Murphy says that ruling will be checked before being made public.

Gans was found dead in bed at home in Henderson early May 1 after his wife, Julie, reported she couldn't rouse him.

Gans' manager and longtime friend, Chip Lightman, said Gans was in good health but slept badly that night.

Murphy notes that police suspect no foul play, and says his medical examination isn't taking longer than usual.
