Final Autopsy Report Confirms Cameron Boyce’s Cause of Death. Nearly a month after the unfortunate passing of Disney Channel Star and 20 year-old actor, Cameron Boyce, an official cause of death was revealed in a statement by the Los Angeles coroner.
“The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner determined the cause of death for actor Cameron Boyce was sudden unexpected death in epilepsy,” the coroner said in a statement, “On July 8, an autopsy was performed, and the cause and manner of death were deferred. After additional testing, the cause of death was determined to be sudden unexpected death in epilepsy.”
The star’s “manner of death was certified as natural,” the coroner concluded.
Cameron’s parents, Victor and Libby Boyce, shared an exclusive statement to PEOPLE and said how their son was the “rock” of their family and their “shooting star.”
”There are no words to describe how moved we are by the tremendous outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, and the world. Thank you, everyone, for encircling us with your love and respect of Cameron and concern for our family,” they said.
To help leave a legacy for their son and to brighten the world as her did in life, his family has created the Cameron Boyce Foundation. According to the Cameron Boyce Foundation website, the “Cameron Boyce Foundation provides young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world. The Foundation was established in 2019 to honor Cameron’s legacy.”
Disney has also decided to honor Cameron’s life by donating the funds gathered for the Descendants 3 premiere to one of his favorite charities, the Thirst Project. Thirst Project is a nonprofit organization that works with the support of young people to END the global water crisis by building freshwater wells in developing communities that need safe, clean drinking water.
Our deepest condolences go out to Cameron’s family, friends, and fans during this extremely difficult time.
