Lance Reddick’s Cause of Death Details Revealed

On March 17, 2023, at the age of 60, actor Lance Reddick died suddenly. His representative claimed that he died of “natural causes” even though he seemed to feel fine in social media posts he made just one day prior to his death. He was away from home and participating in a press tour for the film “John Wick: Chapter 4” at the time of his unexpected death.

On April 6th, TMZ obtained Reddick’s official death certificate which lists the cause of death as Ischemic Heart Disease and Atherosclerotic Coronary Artery Disease; however, stating his cause of death isn’t that easy. 

Just hours after the cause of death was publicly revealed, Reddick’s attorney, James Hornstein, released a statement disputing the cause of death. He stated, “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.”

The statement continued, “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. He ate as if a dietician was monitoring his every meal. The information appearing on the death certificate is wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle.”

Hornstein ended the statement by emphasizing, “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 obtained by TMZ also stated that Reddick was cremated. Hornstein did not comment on whether or not that was accurate.

Reddick is survived by his wife, Stephanie Reddick, and his children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick.

One week ago, Stephanie Reddick posted on her husband’s Instagram account thanking fans for their “overwhelming love, support and beautiful stories.”
