Who is Twitch and What is the Reason Behind His Death?

Stephen Laurel Boss, the real name of tWitch, was born in Montgomery, Alabama on September 29, 1982. He rose to prominence in 2008 when he placed second on the fourth season of So You Think You Can Dance. In 2011, 2012, and 2013, he was an all-star on So You Think You Can Dance, and in 2015, he was the team captain. In 2018 and 2022, he served as a judge for the series.

In addition to So, You Think You Can Dance, tWitch was a DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show from 2014 until 2022.

In addition to his dance profession, tWitch was also an actor, appearing in films including Blades of Glory, Hairspray, Stomp the Yard: Homecoming, Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution, Step Up All In, and Magic Mike XXL. He has also been on Modern Family and Young and Hungry.

On December 13, 2022, tWitch died after more than a decade in Hollywood. He was in his forties. Weslie Fowler, Maddox Laurel, and Zaia, his three children, survived him. His wife, Allison Holker, was a contestant on the second season of So You Think You Can Dance. Holker told E! News in 2022 about her and tWitch’s children, “It’s interesting, we have three kids now, and they all have entirely different personalities, but they can all dance.” Everyone can dance, even if they do it differently.

“Yes, they all boogie,” tWitch remarked. The question now is, will they become professional dancers? We’ll see. However, are they reluctant to boogie? Oh no, they aren’t! At all.


How did tWitch die?

On December 14, 2022, Twitch’s wife, Allison Holker, revealed her husband’s passing in a statement to People. He was in his forties. In a statement, Holker stated, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to reveal my husband Stephen has left us.” “Stephen brought light into every space he entered.

Above all else, he treasured his family, friends, and community. He believed that the best way to lead was to lead with love and light. He was our family’s rock, the best husband and father, and an example to his followers.

To say that he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive influence will still be felt, she continued. There won’t be a day that goes by that we don’t remember him, I’m positive of that. In this trying time for myself and especially for our three kids, we ask for privacy. She addressed her husband in her final statement.

I’ll always save the last dance for you, she added, adding that “Stephen, we love you, we miss you.”

Three days prior to his passing, Holker and tWitch, who wed on December 10, 2013, celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary. Our ninth anniversary is today! I am so thankful to be able to celebrate this wonderful day! One of the best choices I’ve ever made in my life was to say YES to @sir twitch alot! I’m very grateful and loved right now! I cherish you so much, darling, and I’ll never take our relationship for granted. I LOVE YOU #happyanniversary #bosswedding2013,” she wrote as the caption for an Instagram post of their wedding images and videos.

tWitch also posted a black-and-white image from his wedding to Holker in his own anniversary Instagram post. Happy anniversary, “my darling,” wrote he, “@allisonholker #9years.”


What caused the death of Stephen “tWitch” Boss?

According to Page Six, tWitch’s death has declared a suicide due to a gunshot wound to the head. According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, there were no indications of foul play, and the matter has been closed.

Allison Holker, Witch’s wife, entered a Los Angeles Police Department station on December 13, 2022, in a panic because Witch had left their home without his automobile, which was not of character. At 11:15 a.m. Pacific Time, rescuers got a report for a medical emergency at the Oak Tree Inn in Encino, California, a 14-minute walk from tWitch and Holker’s home, where he was discovered dead in the bathroom from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His death was pronounced at the site.


According to TMZ’s sources, tWitch checked into the motel the morning of December 12, 2022, one day before to his demise. Motel employees told TMZ that tWitch was not in “distress” or “obviously distressed” when he arrived at the hotel. Staff members informed TMZ that he arrived with a little backpack and reserved a room for only one night. tWitch was found dead in his room on December 13, 2022, after he missed his checkout time and failed to respond to the hotel staff’s calls.

The workers informed TMZ that they did not hear a gunshot during tWitch’s visit due to the motel’s U-shaped design and separate flats.

The Oak Tree Inn did not rent any rooms for a week following tWitch’s death, according to the motel’s management, who told Us Weekly. The employee also stated that tWitch was alone and that “nothing was out of the ordinary” on the day tWitch’s body was discovered.
