    *The cause of death for Lance Reddick has been listed as ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, but the actor’s lawyer is disputing the coroner’s conclusion.

    “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,” read the statement provided to PEOPLE by Reddick’s attorney James Hornstein.

    “Lance was the most physically fit person I’ve ever known,” Hornstein 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.”

    Reddick was found dead in his home on March 17. At the time, his reps shared this statement: “Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this morning from natural causes.”

    “Lance was best known for his roles in The Wire, Bosch, Netflix’s Resident Evil and the John Wick films,” the statement continued.

    “He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick,” it noted. “Lance will be greatly missed. Please respect his family’s privacy at this time.”

    One of his last posts was of Reddick promoting his film “John Wick 4” while gushing over his four dogs.

    “On screen and off, it’s no surprise I love spoiling my dogs,” he wrote in the caption.
