It has been reported that, per Lance Reddick’s death certificate, a cause of death as "Ischemic Heart Disease as well as Atherosclerotic Coronary Artery Disease", which would explain how he was found collapsed in the backyard.

Coronary artery disease (CAD), also called coronary heart disease (CHD), ischemic heart disease (IHD),[13] myocardial ischemia,[14] or simply heart disease, involves the reduction of blood flow to the heart muscle due to build-up of atherosclerotic plaque in the arteries of the heart.[5][6][15] It is the most common of the cardiovascular diseases.[16] Types include stable angina, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, and sudden cardiac death

That said, this diagnosis has been disputed by his family. Through their attorney the following has been expressed:

"no autopsy was performed" on Reddick and that, to his knowledge, "no medical examination of Lance during his lifetime ever indicated such conditions."

Reddick [was] "the most physically fit person I've ever known," saying that the "Fringe" and "Lost" actor worked out daily at his home gym, did "extensive cardio work" and contractually required having access to gym facilities when working away from home. He also said Reddick "ate as if a dietitian was monitoring his every meal."

"The information appearing on the death certificate is wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle"

"On behalf of his wife, the death certificate information is not corroborated and is inconsistent with the facts known to the family."

So... there it is, for the moment. If it sticks.

Rest in Peace, Commander.
