Gregory Tyree Boyce has died. He was 30 years old.

The actor, best known for his role as Tyler Crowley in Twilight, was found dead on Wednesday in his Las Vegas condo along with his girlfriend Natalie Adepoju, local police told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to Deadline.

The cause of death is still pending.

Another source spoke to E! News and said: "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."

They added that he moved to Las Vegas to help his mom but he would often travel back to LA for acting jobs and to see his daughter.

He was "really focused and handling a lot of business", the source said, before his death.

According to People, Gregory's mom later paid tribute to her son on Facebook and revealed he and Natalie were working on a business plan to develop his wings business. "He was on to something great," she said. 

The publication also reports that just months before his death, the actor wrote on Instagram on his 30-year-old birthday: "At one point I didn't think I would make it to see 30 years old. 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!"

A friend of the star described him as "super positive, super animated, really witty" and said "he was the life of the party". "I will definitely miss him."

Gregory is survived by his 10-year-old daughter, Alaya, and 27-year-old Natalie is survived by her son, Egypt, as well as her father and three siblings.
