A new autopsy report shows Leslie Jordan died from sudden cardiac dysfunction.
Jordan died in a car accident at age 67 on October 24. The medical examiner’s report stated that the beloved “Call Me Kat” star veered his car into another vehicle and then collided into a building. Paramedics pronounced Jordan dead at the scene.
An autopsy of Jordan’s body revealed moderate to severe atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease with approximately 80% stenosis of the left anterior descending artery, 50% stenosis of the left circumflex artery, and 20% stenosis of the right coronary artery.
Leslie Jordan Death Cause is Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease.
A toxicology report was negative for both alcohol and drugs. The manner of Jordan’s death has been classified as natural.
The report noted that the presence of more than 70% occlusion of any coronary artery greatly increases the risk of a sudden cardiac event.
The medical examiner’s report comes just two weeks after country music superstar Dolly Parton bid a surprise farewell to Jordan in an emotional video tribute that aired during the Jan. 5 winter premiere of “Call Me Kat.”
Parton, 77, sang a few lines from the song “Where the Soul Never Dies,” which she and Jordan recorded together for Jordan’s 2021 album “Company’s Coming,” before telling the late “Will & Grace” star how adored he was.
“You left a lot of people here with a lot of precious, precious memories.” “Everybody loved you, but I doubt many of them loved you more than I did,” said Parton.
