Tyree Boyce Bio – Wiki
Tyree Boyce was an American actor, who known for starring in “Twilight,” and his girlfriend was found dead at their Las Vegas residence, a spokesperson from the Clark County Coroner’s Office said Tuesday.
Boyce and his girlfriend, Natalie Adepoju were found on Wednesday and a cause of death has not been announced.
“I’m sick without you. I’m in pain,” Boyce’s mother, Lisa Wayne wrote on Facebook Sunday. “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 through this together. Boy. Why did you leave me.”
He was 30 years old.
Boyce played Tyler Crowley, a high school student who inadvertently brings the two leads together when he nearly runs over Bella (Kristen Stewart) with his car in the 2008 film “Twilight.” He also acted in a short film titled “Cowboy.” Yet, Boyce had aspirations beyond acting and hoped to open up his own restaurant, said Wayne.
“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.,” Wayne wrote. “I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion.”
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Boyce, who played Tyler Crowley in the 2008 vampire romance movie, and his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju, 27, were both found dead last week in a Las Vegas condo. Police said they were called to the home on Wednesday afternoon for a report of a “dead body.”
A cause of death has not been announced. Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Larry Hadfield told the newspaper that “the incident was not criminal” but no other details have been disclosed.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that “an unknown white powdery substance” was allegedly found at the scene.
