Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department are going to be obtaining search warrants in the ongoing investigation into the mysterious death of Alexander Jentzsch, the son of the President of the controversial religion, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As we previously reported, Alexander Jentzsch -- the 27-year-old son of Heber Jentzsch, who hasn't been seen in public since 2004 -- died on July 2 in the San Fernando Valley, allegedly of a high fever. Ed Winter, Assistant Chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office told Radar that the LAPD is investigating the death. "The LAPD is involved in the investigation into Alexander Jentzsch. Let's just say we have questions about his death. We also have been told that Alexander's father-in-law found his body, and ran an errand, and then came home and called 911," Winter told Radar on Tuesday.

"Detectives from the LAPD will be obtaining search warrants for cell phone records of Alexander, his father-in-law, mother-in-law and his wife," a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. "Detectives are working with the coroner to establish a timeline of events leading up to Alexander's death. There are some questions surrounding the timing of Alexander's father-in-law's call to 911.  As it appears at this time, he discovered Alexander's dead body in the morning, and then took his daughter to school before calling 911."

An autopsy was conducted on Alexander's body and the cause of death is listed as deferred pending toxicology results. The coroner recovered Nyquil and several prescription bottles from the death scene.

Toxicology reports could reveal what the cause of Alexander's death was. Those results are expected to be released in the next four to six weeks.

A spokesman for the LAPD told RadarOnline.com, "There is no evidence of foul play at this time. Right now, the detectives are awaiting the report from the coroner, and that is all we are going to say at this point."
