A cause of death has been determined for actor Lance Reddick — and it has been quickly disputed. First reported Reddick's death certificate to the public early Thursday but then obtained it, listing atherosclerotic coronary artery disease and ischemic heart disease as his immediate causes.

In response to the initial report, James Hornstein issued a statement. I have represented Lance and Stephanie Reddick for many years. The coroner's report on Lance's death certificate is not a result of an autopsy. Lance was never subjected to an autopsy during his lifetime. As far as I know, Lance had never been screened for such conditions during his lifetime," read the statement.

He was the most physically fit person I had ever known. For his work away from home, the availability of gym facilities was a contractual requirement, and he exercised regularly at his home gym, which included extensive cardio. According to the death certificate, he ate as if a dietician monitored every meal. His lifestyle does not correspond to the information on the death certificate."

It concluded, "On behalf of Stephanie Reddick, the information on her death certificate does not corroborate and conflict with what is known to the family." A report stated that Reddick, 60, would be cremated, although Hornstein declined to comment." He was found dead at home on March 17 after starring in series such as The Wire and Bosch."
