Dead Twilight star Gregory Tyree Boyce didn't think he'd make it to 30

Twilight star Gregory Tyree Boyce said he never thought he'd make it to 30 in a social media post just months before he and his girlfriend were found dead in their Las Vegas condo.

Boyce, 30, and his 27-year-old girlfriend Natalie Adepoju were found dead on May 13, according to the Las Vegas Medical Examiner's office. 

Sources told TMZ that an unknown white powdery substance was found at the scene when their bodies were discovered.

The official cause of their deaths has not yet been released but law enforcement have said it was not criminal. 

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. 

'At one point I didn't think I would make it to see 30 years old,' he wrote.

In an Instagram post from December (pictured above) when Boyce celebrated his 30th birthday, the actor wrote that he didn't think he'd reach the milestone age 

'Over the years like everyone else I have made mistakes along the way, but today is one of those days I only reflect on the great ones. What a time to be alive. Happy Dirty 30 self! Let's make the rest of these years your best!!'  

Boyce was best known for his role as Tyler Crowley in the first Twilight franchise movie in 2008. In the film, he almost crashed into Kristen Stewart's character Bella Swan with a car before she was saved by Robert Pattinson's character, Edward Cullen. 

Boyce, who also appeared in the film short Apocalypse in 2018, had a 10-year-old daughter Alaya and his girlfriend had a young son called Egypt from a previous relationship.  

The couple, who had been dating for about a year, were found dead in their condo on May 13 after Boyce's cousin noticed the actor's car in the driveway when he was supposed to have been in Los Angeles.  

'Greg's cousin woke up and noticed that Greg's car was still at the house. He was worried because Greg was to be in LA. His cousin went to check on him and found them,' a source told E! News.    

Prior to his death, the source said Boyce was 'really focused and handling a lot of business'.

He had moved to Las Vegas to help his mother but would commute to Los Angeles for acting roles and to see his daughter.  

In an statement, Boyce's family told TMZ: '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.'  

Boyce and his girlfriend were last featured together on his Instagram page when he wished Adepoju a Happy Mother's Day. 

 'Happy Mother's Day again to my right hand/ my roll dog/ my Queen! Love you,' he wrote. 

In a statement on GoFundMe page set up for Adepoju, she was remembered as a 'loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend'. 

'Natalie had so much life to live we are saddened that her life was cut short. Natalie leaves behind one son, her father, two brothers and one sister, and a host of family and friends who love her dearly,' the page read.  

The couple had been dating for about a year. Adepoju has a young son named Egypt and Boyce is survived by his 10-year-old daughter, Alaya

Boyce's mother, Lisa Wayne, mourned her son's death in a Facebook post on Sunday. 

She revealed that Boyce had ambitions of starting a wing business, West Wings, and that Adepoju was his business partner. 

'We were supposed to meet on Tuesday with my dad to discuss some plans for our near future to launch us into a great future, but that never happened,' she wrote. 

'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.

'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 thru this together. Boy. Why did you leave me?'  

Wayne last saw Boyce on May 11 when she visited his home to eat leftover food from Mother's Day and spend time together. 

'I went to your house to eat leftovers from Mother's day,' she wrote.

'We watched a Dave Chappelle show and you walked me to my car, hugged me, kissed me on my cheek and told me that you love me and to call you when I got home. 

'That was it. Never another hug, kiss or to hear those words, I love you again.' 

The official cause of their deaths has not yet been released but law enforcement have said it was not criminal. They are pictured together in a 2019 Instagram post
