“Twilight” actor Gregory Tyree Boyce, 30, and his 27-year-old girlfriend were found dead in their Las Vegas condo on May 13, although the news was only circulated widely on May 18.
Boyce and Natalie Adepoju were discovered dead by Boyce’s cousin who reportedly went to check on them, The Daily Mail reported.
Millions of “Twilight” fans will remember Boyce for his role in the movie franchise’s first installment in 2008. In the hugely successful film, Boyce played Tyler Crowley, who had a crush on Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella Swan. Boyce also appeared in the short film “Apocalypse” in 2018.
Some of Boyce’s fans went to Twitter to question why it took so long for news reports of his death to come out, especially considering the slew celebrity deaths of late.
One person tweeted on May 14, “No one’s talking about this and it’s upsetting me but Gregory Tyree Boyce, the guy who plays Tyler in Twilight was murdered yesterday along with his girlfriend. Praying for his family’s peace this is so messed up #twilight.”
Another tweeted, “how the f*** is there no reports about gregory tyree boyce?! apparently him and his girlfriend have been murdered and no one is talking about it?!?”
“I’m sick without you. I’m torn, I’m lost. I’m in pain. 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?’,” Lisa Wayne wrote.
