Following the tragic death of 20-year-old Disney star Cameron Boyce on Saturday, his family confirm the actor’s epilepsy factored into his passing.

In a statement to People, the Boyce family reveal the actor’s death was “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 continues.
