Zachery Tims' mother is set to appear in court this week in an attempt to stop the New York City medical examiner's office from releasing the late pastor's cause of death.

Madeline Tims, 61, will appear in court Wednesday to argue why her son's autopsy results should remain private.

It's not unusual for a family to want to keep autopsy results from the public, however in Florida, a court order is required to do so.

Tims was found dead in a New York City hotel room Aug. 12.

After it was revealed that a white powder was found in his pocket, some speculated that his death was drug related.

After an initial autopsy was returned inconclusive, another was ordered along with a toxicology on the white substance.

Police said there was no foul play involved in Tims' death.

New Destiny Christian Center is now in the process of choosing their founding pastor's successor.
