Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ Cause of Death Officially Ruled a Suicide by Los Angeles Coroner

The death of the beloved Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss who was a DJ and executive producer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show until the show ended has been officially confirmed as a suicide.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner released the autopsy report stating that Boss passed away due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. He was found dead on Tuesday at a motel in the Encino area of Los Angeles. The case is now officially closed.

The 40-year-old Boss was discovered dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head at the Oak Tree Inn in Encino, California. Hotel personnel stated that he checked in on Monday morning. He reserved the room for the night and brought a small bag with him. After he missed his checkout time the following morning, staff members knocked on his door. When he didn’t respond, they entered the room where they found him dead.

According to People, Boss’ wife, Allison Holker confirmed his death and released a statement:

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. 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.

TMZ reported that Holker went to the police station in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and told the police that her husband had left the home without his car, which he would never do. Police stated they received a phone call a short time later of a shooting at the Oak Tree Inn. They found his body there with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Boss appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2014 when he was on the show as a guest DJ. He became permanent on the daytime talk show and worked his way to becoming a co-executive producer in 2020. He leaves behind his wife Allison and children Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.
