More details surrounding the sudden and tragic passing of celebrity DJ and dancer Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ death are being disclosed.
According to Radar Online, the beloved “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” star, 40, was found dead by a maid at the Oak Tree Inn in Encino, Calif, Tuesday after he missed his checkout.
The manager of the Encino hotel – who wished not to be named – told the news outlet, exclusively, that tWitch checked into the Inn on Monday, arriving at the modest, cost-friendly facility without a vehicle.
Despite reports, the manager revealed no gunshots were heard.
When tWitch missed his 11 a.m. checkout the following day, the manager said he sent a maid to his room and she accessed entry with her key. He then informed the news outlet that the maid found the star dancer’s body in the bathroom.
After being notified about the horrific scene, the manager then dialed 911 to report a shooting. He was, however, unable to give an account of where tWitch’s wounds were.
The manager also said that no visible suicide note was left, but tWitch had a small bag with him when he arrived at the Encino hotel, which was found in his room at the time of his death. He also informed Radar Online that officers confiscated the bag, which could possibly contain a suicide note.
Sadly, the Inn is just a 14-minute walk from the all-star dancer’s LA home.
tWitch’s friends expressed shock and disbelief over the news, adding that their hearts go out to his spouse, Allison Holker, and his three kids – Welsie Ranae (Holker’s daughter who he adopted), Maddox, and Zaia.
Allison confirmed his passing with an emotional statement.
“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,” she continued. “I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children.”
“Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
The pair had just celebrated their ninth anniversary on Saturday, sharing heartfelt tributes about their love on Monday.

As per reports, Allison entered a branch of the LAPD on Tuesday to report tWitch missing – he had left home without his car and had stopped all communication, something that was so out of character for him.
Law enforcement sources said they then accompanied the all-star’s wife to their family home, conducting a brief check around the property for any clues as to where he had gone.
Allison was very persistent about tWitch’s odd behavior, and officers considered listing him as a “critical missing persons’ case. However, just hours after Allison’s contact with LAPD, a 911 call come in saying tWitch’s body had been discovered at a hotel less than a mile from his residence.
We send our prayers and condolences to the family and pray that Stephen ‘tWitch’ boss rests in peace!
