The DJ from Ellen DeGeneres’ show who shot himself this week was found in a hotel room in Los Angeles, according to hotel management, and the shocked maid found him there.
Around 10:30 a.m., executive producer Stephen “tWitch” Boss, 40, arrived at room 249 of the Oak Tree Inn in Encino. m. a Monday.
Manager Rakesh said, “He went into his room, never came out.”.
At 11:15 a.m., the maid showed up to inspect the room. m. last Tuesday. His things were inside, even though no one was there. When she used the bathroom, she found blood all over the place.
She was terrified. It has never occurred here before this.
We checked his pulse when the 911 operator requested it, but there was none. He had already been pronounced dead when the police and paramedics arrived.
Visitors and staff did not hear the gunfire, according to Rakesh, who asked only to be identified by his first name.
Perhaps he carried out this activity all day on Monday. He guessed nobody heard it because of the loud, busy road outside.
On Monday at around 9:20 a.m., the boss called. m. followed by a short walk from his home to see if any rooms were still available. Rakesh observed that he seemed “very normal” and “calm.”.
Rakesh reported that when they knocked on the door, “there was no response.”. His possessions were still in the space when the maid opened the door.
The manager continued claiming that Boss had shot himself in the restroom, which another worker corroborated.
They claimed that he checked into the motel on Monday using his name and that he was not discovered on Tuesday morning.
The situation was described as “horrible” by the workers, who claimed that the man “shot himself in the head,” but no one heard the gunshots.
He left the house without a car on Monday, and when he didn’t come home by Tuesday — having been gone all night — his wife hurried to file a missing person’s report.
Boss’ family arrived at his six-bedroom Encino home on Wednesday morning to take care of his distraught wife and kids, embracing his sobbing son as he ran out to meet them.
The family declined to comment, according to one source.
Stephen has three children: Zaia, age three; Maddox Laurel, age six; and Weslie Renae, age fourteen, who was born in Alison’s previous relationship but was adopted by Stephen. The contestant and his 34-year-old dance instructor wife Alison met while watching So You Think You Can Dancing in 2010.
A sign on the family’s front lawn states that daughter Weslie plans to enrol at Notre Dame University with the class of 2026; the suicide has cast a shadow over her bright future.
She also showcases athletic wear and acts as a young influencer for companies like her parents’ Dick’s Sporting Goods. She participates in the soccer team at her school as well.
They celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary three days before his passing when they made an appearance on the show in November. They were joyful and optimistic about the future.
Boss and his wife posted a touching video of them dancing on social media to commemorate the occasion.
In 2014, he started working on Ellen’s program, and he remained there until 2022 when he was promoted to executive producer.
