Last month, news broke that Twilight actor Gregory Tyree Boyce, 30, and his 27-year-old girlfriend Natalie Adepoju, were tragically found dead in their Las Vegas condo. They reportedly passed away May 13, but the cause of death for both Boyce and Adepoju was unknown at the time.
Now, the couple’s autopsy reports have been released and a cause of death has been revealed.
Back in May, the news of Boyce, who was known for his role as Tyler Crowley in Twilight, and Adepoju’s deaths was first reported by E! who confirmed the news with the Las Vegas Medical Examiners office.
According to their report, an anonymous source says they were found after Boyce’s car was seen at their home when he was supposed to be in Los Angeles.
“Greg’s cousin woke up and noticed that Greg’s car was still at the house. He was worried because Greg was to be in LA. His cousin went to check on him and found them,” the source reveals.
Further, they say he was “really focused and handling a lot of business.” While he had moved to Vegas to help his mother, he “would commute to LA for acting jobs and to see his daughter.”
Now, autopsy reports reveal that the couple both died from the effects of cocaine and fentanyl intoxication. Their deaths have been ruled as accidental. Police officials say they found a white powder on a dresser in their home and there was no evidence of foul play.
Boyce acted alongside Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Twilight where he played high school student Tyler Crowley. Perhaps the most well-known scene Boyce appeared in as Crowley is when he also hit Bella with his car in the school parking lot. Edward is able to stop the car with his hand which sparks suspicions that he is a vampire.
Following the couple’s deaths, Boyce’s mom revealed in a Facebook post that he was planning on opening a chicken wing restaurant. The actor turned 30 in December is survived by his 10-year-old daughter, Alaya, and Adepoju by her son, Egypt.
Adepoju’s family posted a GoFundMe page confirming the news while asking for donations to bring her home to them.
