‘Twilight’ actor Gregory Tyree Boyce, 30. was on Wednesday, May 13 found dead in his Las Vegas condo alongside his Nigerian girlfriend Natalie Adepoju, 27. The couple had been dating for about a year.

“Greg was definitely a person who loved life and [was] super positive… super animated, really witty, he was the life of the party. I will definitely miss him. He was one of my funniest friends in LA and made my experience there really memorable.”
Who was Natalie Adepoju?
Very little was known about her publicly as she stayed out of the limelight. Her family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to transport her body back to their family home. In a letter on the page, they wrote: “We are writing this letter to let you know that our loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend Natalie Adepoju suddenly passed away on May 13, 2020 in Las Vegas.” They added “Natalie had so much life to live and we are saddened that her life was cut short.

Five humanoid robots, manufactured by a Belgium-based company, have been delivered to Rwanda where they will assist in coronavirus screening, deliver food and drugs to patients, as well as act as video-conferencing links between patients and doctors. Each robot has been given a Rwandan name – Akazuba, Ikizere, Mwiza, Ngabo, and Urumuri.

“We need additional robots for other duties like disinfection in public space and we are working to get them,” he added.
