Twilight actor Gregory Tyree Boyce and his 27-year-old Nigerian girlfriend, Natalie Adepoju were found dead in their Las Vegas home.
According to E! News, Boyce and Adepoju were pronounced dead on May 13, however the cause of their death is still unknown as the police awaits the toxicology results.
A source close to the family told E! News that it was the cousin of the twilight actor that found Boyce and Adepoju dead.
The source said: “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 revealed that Boyce had recently moved to Las Vegas to be close to his mother, but “would commute to LA for acting jobs and to see his daughter”
Another source said: “Greg was definitely a person who loved life and (was) super positive… super animated, really witty, he was the life of the party. I will definitely miss him. He was one of my funniest friends in LA and made my experience there really memorable.”
Boyce’s death comes a few months after he said he didn’t think he would live past 30. In an Instagram post, he wrote: “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. Happy Dirty 30 self! Let”s make the rest of these years your best!!”
His mother, Lisa Wayne took to Facebook to eulogize her son.
Wayne wrote: “He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings. He created the flavours to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers. Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc,
“He had flavours like, Tequila Lime Agave…those were my favourite. A Hennessy Maple flavour, oh man, just so damn good. I can say that my son was my favourite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion.”
Boyce is survived by his 10-year-old daughter Alaya, while Adepoju is survived by her son, Egypt.
