Investigators probing the fiery death of Paul Walker on Saturday are considering the possibility that the Fast &  Furious actor and his friend Roger Rodas were drag racing.

"Naturally, from an investigative standpoint, we need to find out if that is one of the issues," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Cohen told CNN on Monday.
