Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce died this month of “sudden and unexpected death from epilepsy,” the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s decision, released Tuesday, matches what Boyce’s family said after the 20-year-old was found unanswered on July 6 at his North Hollywood home and declared dead by the authorities.
The medical examiner’s office said the cause of death was certified natural. Boyce was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:35 p.m. that day, the medical examiner’s office said.
A family spokesperson told E! News on July 9 that Boyce, best known for his roles in Disney Channel’s “The Descendants” and “Jessie”, died of a seizure, and suffered the seizure in his sleep.
Boyce’s death was mourned on social media, including actors he had worked with.
Adam Sandler, who starred with Boyce in the 2010 film “Grown Ups”, posted a photo of himself on Twitter after his death, saying, “Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, decent kid around. “
The Disney Channel also said in a statement at the time that Boyce was “an incredibly talented artist, a remarkably caring and caring person and, above all, he was a son, a brother, a grandson and a loving and devoted friend. “
Boyce’s parents said in a statement earlier this month that was read by “The Descendants” actor Dove Cameron that “what was special about Cameron was who he was in the little moments when can? – nobody was looking at him. “
“The times between the grown ups when he didn’t have to be good or nice, Cameron was always good and kind. He was selfless and generous. He was magnanimous,” the parents said.
Parents Libby and Victor Boyce told People magazine in a statement earlier this month that “there are no words to describe how moved we are by the enormous outpouring of love and support from our family, our friends and the world “.
They told the people, “He was the very definition of human kindness, and a light that will shine forever as his spirit lives on in all who knew and loved him. He was the rock of our family and he has always had a positive and heartwarming attitude, an insightful and caring look at everything and everyone. “
