What Cameron Boyce’s Death Certificate Reveals
Nearly two weeks after his sudden death, Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce's death certificate has been released.
According to the document, obtained by TMZ, Boyce was cremated and his ashes were given to his father Victor.
Forest Lawn Memorial Park and Mortuary was listed as the funeral establishment. It is where many big names, including Nipsey Hussle, Michael Jackson and Debbie Reynolds, have been buried.
The cause of death has been deferred pending “further investigation.”
The Los Angeles County Department Medical Examiner-Coroner recently updated its new release, saying, “Preliminary information suggests the death occurred under natural circumstances.”
No details have been released about his funeral, but his parents recently noted that it has been “agonizing” to “make arrangements for his funeral.”
Though they are experiencing “indescribable” pain, his family vows to keep his legacy alive, saying, “We are making every effort to move forward and ensure that Cameron's legacy and all that he stood for is honored.”
His family has just launched a foundation in his name to provide “young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.”
At the time of his death, Boyce was working on a social media campaign. His rep Kasey Kitchen told People magazine, “Cameron was the epitome of a humanitarian. He had so much he wanted to do and so much left to say. We had countless long, in-depth conversations about life, and how he felt compelled to fight for others without a voice. His last project that we were working on was something called Wielding Peace, which was a social media campaign in conjunction with Delaney Tarr, co-founder of March for Our Lives.”
Kitchen is working to complete the campaign in Boyce's honor, emphasizing, “We have every intention of bringing the campaign to fruition in the near future. It is the duty of all who cared for and loved him to uphold his legacy and continue to strive to be better humans so that we too, may one day leave behind something far greater than ourselves.”
His father recently released the final photo that he took of his son. In the photograph, Cameron is wearing a denim jacket while sitting at a table with his hand up to his chin. Victor wrote on Instagram, “My son. Just hours before he was snatched from our lives. I miss him terribly. I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I'm feeling but no one is immune to tragedy.”
