‘The Wire Star’ Lance Reddick’s Cause Of Death Revealed

The Wire star Lance Reddick’s cause of death has been revealed to be ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.

Reddick suddenly passed suddenly last month after his wife found him collapsed in their yard. She was unable to resuscitate him. He was 60 at his time of death.

But his family is disputing the results.

Attorney James Hornstein said the actor’s lifetime of personal fitness seems to contradict a statement from the coroner.

“I have represented Lance Reddick for many years and continue to represent his wife Stephanie. The coroner’s 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,” Hornstein said.

“Lance was the most physically fit person I’ve ever known. 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,” the attorney said. “He ate as if a dietitian was monitoring his every meal.”

He concluded, “On behalf of Stephanie Reddick, the death certificate information is not corroborated and is inconsistent with the facts known to the family.”
