'Twilight' actor Gregory Tyree Boyce and his girlfriend found dead by cousin at couple's Las Vegas home
'Twilight' actor Gregory Tyree Boyce was found dead on May 13, alongside his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju
'Twilight' actor Gregory Tyree Boyce was found dead with girlfriend Natalie Adepoju in their condo in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 13. The cause of the death of a 30-year-old actor and his 27-year-old girlfriend is yet to be confirmed.
According to a report in People, the actor's and his girlfriend's death was confirmed by the spokesperson of Clark County Medical Examiner. "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," a source revealed. TMZ reports also suggest that a strange white powdery substance was found in the residence where Boyce and Adepoju were found.
Boyce's acting credits include his role as Tyler Crowley in 'Twilight' in which he is known for having almost crashed into Bella(Kristen Stewart) with his van. He was also a part of a short known as 'Apocalypse'.
In an emotional tribute to her son, Boyce's mother Lisa Wayne wrote on Facebook, "My baby boy, Greg Boyce was the best chef....oh man. He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings. He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers. Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc. He had flavors like Tequila Lime Agave...those were my favorite. A Hennessy Maple flavor, oh man, just so damn good. I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion."
She also added, "I'm sick without you. I'm torn, I'm lost. I'm in pain. I'd text you or call you when I was broken or worried about something, and you'd tell me, Ma, I got you, we'll get thru this together. Boy. Why did you leave me. We lived in the same complex and you were my dinner. You'd cook, I'd come eat and chill and walk back home. During quarantine, we started walking in the evenings. Me, you, Natalie, Alaya and Kaniya found a beautiful trail to walk on, we loved it out there. I wanted to lose weight so bad, but you just kept cooking and I cannot resist your food. Since you've left me baby, I've lost 7 lbs. Lol (sic)."
She further wrote, "Bria Flannigan came over yesterday and they cooked breakfast for me, Bria asked where are my spices and seasonings. I told her that I never needed them because you had everything and you cooked. That is a shame baby that you spoiled me like that. Who is gonna cook for me Hunny? Guess I have to go buy food now. Everyone that knows us, knew how we'd go at it, but in a matter of time, we were back to laughing and joking."
A GoFundMe for Adepoju has been created to seek donations to aid in funeral services for the mother of a son. The page states, "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. Currently, it is our wishes to not disclose the cause. We ask that you respect the families wishes. However, due to the sudden passing and the need to bring Natalie home, we are asking if you can help with any monetary donation (sic)."
