A copy of the actor's death certificate listed ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease as his immediate causes of death, but his attorney claims that it is 'wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle.'

AceShowbiz - Lance Reddick's cause of death has been brought into question soon after it was revealed. A representative confirmed that the actor died on March 17 aged 60 "from natural causes," and it was only recently revealed that he suffered ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, according to his death certificate. However, his attorney has disputed the report.

Attorney James Hornstein claimed that the information provided in the death certificate is "wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle" and that an autopsy was never performed. She said in a statement, "I have represented Lance Reddick for many years and continue to represent his wife Stephanie. The coroner statement on the death certificate is not a result of an autopsy. No autopsy was performed on Lance. To my knowledge, no medical examination of Lance during his lifetime ever indicated such conditions."

"Lance was the most physically fit person I've ever known," she continued. "He exercised daily at his home gym, including extensive cardio work, and the availability of gym facilities was a contractual requirement for his work away from home. He ate as if a dietician was monitoring his every meal. The information appearing on the death certificate is wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle."

The statement concluded, "On behalf of Stephanie Reddick, the death certificate information is not corroborated and is inconsistent with the facts known to the family."

The death certificate, which was obtained by TMZ, also stated Lance was to be cremated, although the attorney didn't comment on the matter. The outlet additionally reported that Lance's second wife Stephanie, whom he married in 2011, called 911 after she found him collapsed in the back garden of his home in Studio City, Los Angeles. He is survived by his wife and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick.

Lance was best known for his role on "The Wire", "Bosch", Netflix's "Resident Evil" and the "John Wick" films.
