Actor Gregory Boyce from the film “Twilight” and his girlfriend were found dead last week in a Las Vegas condominium, authorities said Tuesday.
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said foul play was not suspected in the May 13 deaths of 30-year-old Boyce, and his girlfriend 27-year-old Natalie Adenike Adepoju.
The coroner said their causes and manners of death won’t be known until medical examiners receive toxicology test results. According to the coroner’s office, it can take between six and eight weeks.
The bodies were found after police were summoned to a report of a dead body in a residential complex several miles east of the Las Vegas Strip, police said.
Las Vegas Police Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said the deaths were not considered to be the result of a criminal act.
Boyce was best known for playing Tyler Crowley opposite Kristen Stewart’s character Bella Swan in the 2008 film “Twilight.”
Boyce was also credited with appearing as Cowboy in video short “Apocalypse” in 2018.
In Facebook posts on Sunday, Boyce’s mother, Lisa Wayne, paid tribute to both her son and Adepoju. She wrote that her son was “the best chef.”
“He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings,” Wayne wrote. “He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers.”
Wayne said that she had planned to meet with Boyce on May 19 to talk about a chicken wing business they wanted to open.
“Him [Boyce] and Natalie were working as a team and she was his assistant and Louis D. Ledbetter was his co-chef. It was all in the making,” Wayne said.
“He wanted me to be a part of the business aspect and had a great connection with Adrian McDaniel to be his business/financial manager. We were supposed to meet on Tuesday with my dad to discuss some plans for our near future to launch us into a great future, but that never happened,” she added.
Boyce leaves behind a 10-year-old daughter.
