How tWitch Boss Was Found Dead At Encino Hotel Room
One insider shared a more detailed picture of his death. According to the source, tWitch Boss checked into the Encino hotel on Monday, December 12. The hotel staff tried contacting him the next day after he missed his checkout time. When their effort proved futile, management went into his room and discovered him unresponsive, leading them to contact the police. Paramedics arrived at the scene and pronounced him dead. The hotel manager also confirmed to Us Weekly that the hotel would hold off renting rooms for the week to honor twitch’s passing.
Hours before tWitch Boss’ hotel shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department received a missing person report from his wife, Allison Hockler Boss, who found it unusual that he left home without his car.
The confirmation of her worse fears left the fellow “So You Think You Can Dance” alum aggrieved. In a statement following his death, tWitch’s wife confirmed his death with a heavy heart. She went on to commend his life-well-lived, his impact on her life and those of the kids, and his undying legacy. She also urged the public to give her and the kids privacy as they mourned the demise of her beloved husband.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office has since ruled Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ cause of death as suicide. He died via a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was forty and left behind his wife, their two biological children, an adopted daughter from Allison’s previous relationship, and tons of impactful memories he built during his years of stardom.
