DJ Stephen "tWitch" Boss was only 40 years old

As TMZ reports, among other things, his wife went to the police on Tuesday because her husband had disappeared but left his car at home. This was very uncharacteristic of him. A short time later, the police are said to have been called to a hotel because of shots fired.

There they found the 40-year-old "tWitch". According to TMZ: "they found Stephen there, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene."

"tWitch" became known for the show So You Think You Can Dance and has had roles in Step Up and the Magic Mike films.

He had been on the Ellen show since 2014 and has also served as a producer since 2020. Stephen Boss is survived by his wife, dancer Allison Holker and three children.

Allison has broken her silence since her husband's death. In a statement according to TMZ she said: "Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory."

Rest in peace "tWitch".
