An actor in 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 Gregory Tyree Boyce, 30, and Natalie Adenike Adepoju, 27.
The coroner said their causes and manners of death won’t be known until medical examiners receive toxicology test results in several 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 appeared as Tyler Crowley in the 2008 film starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
Fans of the vampire film franchise paid homage to Boyce and his minor but significant role in the film.
Boyce had just paid tribute to Adepoju on Mother’s Day via his Instagram page, calling his girlfriend “my right hand/ my roll dog/ my Queen.”
Boyce's mother, Lisa Wayne, said in a Facebook post on Sunday that she had planned to meet with Boyce Tuesday to talk about a chicken wing business they wanted to open. The planned restaurant, West Wings, was to feature a variety of flavors named after popular California rappers like Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and The Game.
Though his acting career had been stalled for years, Wayne said her son’s passion for cooking had been the current light of his life.
“Greggy, if I could get my chef on like you, I'd continue this West Wings and set your baby girl up for life. You told me that you didn't want me to work, you wanted to take care of me. Oh man, this is killing me Hunny...”
Boyce had two daughters, including a 10-year-old, according to social media. Adepoju had a 4-year-old son.
