Gooding Sr. was found slumped over in his silver Jaguar, which was parked on a street in Woodland Hills, CA, according to the report. TMZ says the fire department responded to the scene and attempted CPR, but could not resuscitate him.
The autopsy results were released on Tuesday, June 6 with the cause of Gooding Sr.’s death listed as natural and hypertensive and atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease was the factor. The disease can quietly block arteries and slow down the blood, which can often result in heart attacks or strokes.
