After three long weeks after Twilight Star Gregory Tyree Boyce suddenly passed away, the real cause of his death has been revealed. It may be remembered here that the actor who played Tyler Crowley in Twilight breathed his last on May 13. His 27-year-old girlfriend, Natalie Adepoju, was also pronounced dead on the day along with the Twilight star.
Now, the cause of the death has been revealed, and it has been attributed to fentanyl and cocaine intoxication. The Clark County Coroner’s Office termed their deaths accidental. The man and his girlfriend were found dead in the bedroom of their apartment that they shared in Las Vegas, Nev. The cousin of the diseased found them, and they were reported to be dead. While both of them were declared dead on May 13, the actual cause of the death was not announced at the time.
As per the statement from the Coroner John Fudenberg to the Hollywood Reporter, Twilight Star Gregory Tyree Boyce (who was 30) and Adepoju were found to have consumed not only Cocaine but also fentanyl. The fentanyl is an opioid drug in the United States. In fact, the drug has been illegal and has been the cause of thousands of drug overdose cases in the Northern American region.
The Opioid Deaths in the US
CDC has claimed that the fentanyl is an illegal drug sold through the grey drug markets and has been known for the heroin-like effects that it offers you. The drug has resulted in a huge number of drug overdose deaths.
The drug is normally mixed with heroin, cocaine, or both and is meant to improve the so-called euphoric effects of the drug. The element may be mixed with or without the knowledge of the consumers. However, it has been found to cause a seriously huge number of deaths.
It may be noticed that the number of deaths related to Opioid consumption has been more than 14,700. And that too between 2016 and 2019. That should definitely be an alarming number. Over 2900 cases among them have come to the fore in 2019 alone, and more than 90 percent of these deaths have been termed to be accidental.
Meanwhile, coming back to our topic, Boyce, who was born in 1989 and is survived by his mother, Lisa Wayne, brother Chris Wayne and 10-year-old daughter, Alaya Boyce. Adepoju, on the other hand, is survived by her father, two brothers, a sister, and a baby son, Egypt.
