There are new details on the sudden death of Gregory Tyree Boyce and his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju.
Twilight star Gregory Tyree Boyce and his girlfriend, 27, were ‘known to do cocaine and meth’ and had been ‘dead for some time’ before a friend found their bodies next to white powder at their Las Vegas condo, police say.
New information revealed about the tragic deaths:
*Officers said the couple were ‘beyond help’ by the time the discovery was made
*According to a police report, next to their bodies officers found a unspecified white powder substance on a nightstand, and a straw and a plastic card
*The official cause of their deaths has not yet been released but law enforcement have said it was not criminal
*Both Boyce and Adepoju were found lying naked on their backs in bed
*Investigators said each body showed signs of rigor mortis and blood pooling
*In an Instagram post from December when Boyce celebrated his 30th birthday, the actor wrote that he didn’t think he’d reach the milestone age
*Boyce was best known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the first Twilight movie
*The couple had been dating for about a year and each had a child from previous relationships
The Twilight star, 30, and his partner Natalie Adepoju, 27, were found dead inside the bedroom of their Las Vegas home by their roommate, Louis Leadbitter, on May 13.
Investigators were told by Leadbitter and Gregory’s mother that they were both ‘known to do harder drugs’ such as cocaine and meth, the report said.
There were no ‘signs of trauma to either subject’ and the bedroom was undisturbed, officers noted.
Both Boyce and Adepoju were found lying naked on their backs in bed. Investigators said each body showed signs of rigor mortis and blood pooling, indicating they’d been deceased for some time.
The official cause of their deaths has not yet been released, pending a toxicology report. Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said foul play was not suspected.
Leadbitter told police he last saw the couple alive on May 11, two days before he would discover them dead. The 33-year-old said he’d woken up in the afternoon of the 13th having worked a night shift the previous evening to find the couple’s bedroom door closed.
Presuming they were out of the apartment, Leadbitter left the condo to return to work later that day when he noticed the couple’s car was still in the driveway.
Concerned, he knocked on their bedroom door and, after receiving no response, he forced his way into the room to find them both lifeless.
In a statement, Boyce’s family said:
‘We as family of Gregory Boyce are very saddened by our loss. He was a dad, son, grandson, brother, uncle, and friend. He was the light of all our lives and we are very saddened by his death.
‘The Gregory we knew was intimate with the world and a good person. He was a very respectful and responsible man. He always put others first. The family would like to ask for our privacy as we mourn our losses and thank you for your well wishes.’
Such a tragedy….
May they rest in peace…..
