Disney star Cameron Boyce, who sadly passed away over the weekend reportedly had epilepsy which led to the fallen star's fatal seizure, according to his family.

His family revealed the news in a statement to PEOPLE, where they said Boyce'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 statement continued.

On Monday, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner announced in a press release that “An autopsy was performed today and a cause of death was deferred pending further investigation.” 

An official cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
