Las Vegas coroner: Drugs killed ‘Twilight’ actor, girlfriend
LAS VEGAS: Drug use killed actor Gregory Boyce, who appeared as Tyler Crowley in the 2008 film “Twilight” and his girlfriend, the coroner in Las Vegas said Monday.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said Boyce, 30, and Natalie Adepoju, 27, accidentally died of cocaine and fentanyl intoxication.

The bodies were discovered May 13 after Las Vegas police were summoned to a bedroom in a condominium several miles east of the Las Vegas Strip. Officers reported finding a white powder on the dresser and no evidence of foul play.

Fentanyl has been blamed for illegal-use drug overdose deaths in the U.S.
