Disney Channel Actor Cameron Boyce's Autopsy Complete, But No Conclusion On Cause Of Death
The Los Angeles County coroner's office indicates that "a cause of death was deferred pending further investigation" into the 20-year-old's passing.
The autopsy of Cameron Boyce, a star on the Disney Channel who suddenly died over the weekend, has been completed — but an official cause of death has not been determined.
Boyce died Saturday following a seizure related to an “ongoing medical condition,” according to statements made by the actor's family. An autopsy was performed by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner on July 8 but the results were inconclusive.
"A cause of death was deferred pending further investigation," reads a press release from the Coroner's office.
The release confirms that Boyce was found unresponsive in his home in North Hollywood in the early afternoon of July 6. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:35 p.m.
A spokesperson for the family previously stated that Boyce had died in his sleep.
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,” a statement said, according to People. “He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure. ... The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”
Boyce's family members are now beginning to speak about their loss.
“I’m overwhelmed with the love and support our family has received,” Victor Boyce, Cameron's father, wrote on Twitter. "It really does help to ease the pain of this nightmare I can’t wake up from. I can’t thank you guys enough."
Boyce is perhaps best known for his role as a mischief-making protagonist on the Disney Channel program “Jessie." He had previously portrayed Cruella De Vil’s son in the network’s popular “Descendants” films. He began his acting career at the age of 9 with his role in the horror film "Mirrors" alongside Kiefer Sutherland and also portrayed Adam Sandler's son in the "Grown Ups" franchise.
