An autopsy was performed Thursday morning on Indiana University Police Department Chief Keith Cash, who was pronounced dead Wednesday evening.

Autopsy results revealed 50-year-old Cash died as a result of aortic stenosis, a disease of the heart valves in which the opening of the aortic valve is narrowed, decreasing blood flow from the heart.

Cash was named police chief in October of 2010. He was also an instructor at the Indiana University Police Academy and a guest lecturer in criminal justice and other classes at IU Bloomington. He served on the Board of the Indiana Association of Indiana Chiefs of Police, and was a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

Cash is survived by his mother, Judy Cash; father, Tom Cash; brother, Mike Cash; and brother and sister-in-law Steve and Nancy Cash. Funeral arrangements are pending.
