Boyce had been reportedly dating Adepoju for a little over a year.
On a GoFundMe page, Adepoju’s family described her as a “loving daughter, niece, sister, cousin, and friend.”
“Natalie had so much life to live [and] we are saddened that her life was cut short. Natalie leaves behind her one and only baby boy Egypt, her father, two brothers and one sister, and a host of family and friends who love her dearly,” the family statement said.
Boyce is survived by his 10-year-old daughter Alaya.
