Earlier this month, Disney channel fans were devastated to learn of the passing of a beloved star. Cameron Boyce, a 20-year-old actor, passed away. 

The news was confirmed on Sunday, July 7th by his family. The actor who was known for his role on the popular TV series "Jessie," was found dead in his sleep. The family said that his death was due to a medical incident. 

Now, the tragic details of Boyce's death have been confirmed. According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office, the young actor died of "sudden unexpected death in epilepsy."

The office said, "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."

According to the Daily Mail, the coroner's office revealed that the young actor had developed non-traumatic epilepsy around three years prior to his death. He had previously suffered from major seizures.
