Twilight star Gregory Boyce cause of death confirmed
Twilight actor Gregory Boyce’s cause of death has been confirmed as an accidental overdose.
The 30-year-old actor was found dead at his Las Vegas home on 13 May alongside his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju.
A coroner has now revealed that the couple died from the effects of cocaine and fentanyl intoxication.
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg confirmed their deaths were accidental.
Gregory and Natalie, 27, were reportedly found by the actor’s cousin, who was also staying in the home at the time, after he realised Boyce’s car was still at the property, when he was meant to be in Los Angeles.
After arriving at the scene, officers are said to have found a white ‘powdery substance’ inside the room.
The couple leave behind Gregory’s 10-year-old daughter, Alaya, and Natalie’s son, Egypt.
Gregory was best known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the Twilight franchise, one of Bella Swan’s (Kristen Stewart) high school pals. In one iconic scene, he loses control of his truck in the school car park, and almost crushes her before Edward (Robert Pattinson) comes to her rescue.
In a heartbreaking post from 5 December, Boyce celebrated his 30th birthday with a message admitting he ‘didn’t think he would make it’ to the landmark age.
‘At one point I didn’t think I would make it to see 30 years old. Over the years like everyone else I have made mistakes along the way, but today is one of those days I only reflect on the great ones. What a time to be alive,’ he wrote.
‘Happy Dirty 30 self! Let’s make the rest of these years your best!!’
Natalie’s family started a GoFundMe to transport her body back home shortly after her death, and released a statement paying tribute to the mother of one.
‘We are writing this letter to let you know that our loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend Natalie Adepoju suddenly passed away on May 13, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV,’ they said.
‘Currently, it is our wishes to not disclose the cause. We ask that you respect the families [sic] wishes.’
They continued: ‘Natalie had so much life to live, we are saddened that her life was cut short. ‘Natalie leaves behind one son, her father, 2 brothers and 1 sister, and a host of family and friends who love her dearly.’
