This is what I found on CBSNEWS.COM:

Days after the death of Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce, his family is revealing that the star suffered from epilepsy, which caused his fatal seizure. In a statement shared with People Magazine, the Boyce family said the 20-year-old’s “tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy.”

“We are still trying to navigate our way through this extremely heart-wrenching time, and continue to ask for privacy so that the family and all who knew and loved him can grieve his loss and make arrangements for his funeral — which in and of itself, is agonizing,” the family’s statement reads.

In a statement released shortly after Boyce’s death, a family spokesperson said he died in his sleep due to a seizure, “which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.” On Saturday, July 8, the LA County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Boyce died in his North Hollywood home and that an autopsy was performed that day. The cause of death was not given pending further investigation, the sheriff department’s press release stated.

The Disney Channel star was known for his roles as Carlos in the “Descendants” franchise and Luke in the Disney show “Jessie.” Several of his Disney Channel co-stars and other high-profile celebrities remembered Boyce on social media — including former first lady Michelle Obama and Adam Sandler.

“I was lucky enough to share a few moments with Cameron Boyce—on set, at the White House, and on a service project—enough time to recognize that not only did he have incredible talent, but also an incredible heart,” Obama wrote on Instagram. “Sending out a lot of love and hugs to his family, friends, and his many, many fans.”
