Marion Barber III, a former Dallas Cowboys superstar, died of heat stroke, officials revealed to TMZ Sports on Monday.

Barber’s death was deemed an “accident” by the Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Barber was discovered lifeless on June 1 by the Frisco Police Department in Texas, as previously reported. He was only 38 years old at the time.

According to his attorney, Zoltan Papp, the ex-running back, who was selected by the Cowboys in the 4th round of the 2005 NFL Draft, had showed no symptoms of problems prior to his death.

Papp stated that Barber had launched a trucking business and had also spent the last five years attempting to help youngsters in inner communities while advocating for social justice.

Barber had seven seasons in the NFL, 6 with the Cowboys and one with the Bears, accumulating 4,780 running yards and 53 rushing touchdowns in 99 games.
