Investigators looking into the death of local football star Chuck Osborne said they won’t know how or why he died until all test results come back, a spokeswoman for the San Diego Medical Examiner’s office said Thursday.

“There is no definitive cause of death at the time of the examination,” she said.

An autopsy was done of Osborne’s body, she said.

Some of the tests expected to provide insight into his death include toxicology tests, she said.
Osborne, 38, was found dead inside his La Jolla condo Tuesday afternoon.

He played defense for the Canyon High School Cowboys and for University of Arizona Wildcats before his career in the NFL.

In 1996, he was a seventh-round pick of the St. Louis Rams.

He played three NFL seasons with the Rams (1996) and Oakland Raiders (1998 and 1999), then retired after two injury-plagued tries with the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots in 2000.

He was a two-time All-Golden League selection for the Cowboys and was twice named to the All-Santa Clarita Valley Football team.

In 1991, he was the Golden League’s Player of the Year and was rated the No. 4 defensive lineman in the country and was a Super-Prep All-American.
