Alison Holker Boss, the wife of tWitch, told PEOPLE that the dancer had passed away. She didn’t mention the cause of death, but on Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s Office revealed that he committed suicide in a hotel.
Even though more details about the “So You Think You Can Dance” contestant’s passing is not yet known, the manager of the motel where he was staying when he was found dead recalled his final moments.
The management of The Oak Tree Inn confirmed to Radar Online that tWitch had booked a room there on Monday without a car. The distance between the building and his Los Angeles home is just 14 minutes. He checked in the day before his death, and it was reported that he didn’t appear upset. “.
According to workers, he did not seem to be in any difficulty when arriving at the motel, and he was carrying a small piece of luggage. It’s possible that his suicide note was in the bag the police later took when they collected his belongings.
According to his booking, Twitch only planned to stay one night, but he did not leave the hotel by 11 a.m. m. The manager sent his maid to check on the dancer, who had been discovered dead in the restroom.
After seeing the horrible situation, the manager immediately called 911. Although there were no gunshots heard nearby, he might have shot himself.
In a statement, his wife paid heartfelt homage to their family’s “backbone.”.
He left a legacy, and Allison thinks his influence will live on. I’m sure that there won’t be a day that we don’t think of him. During this trying time for myself and our three children, we respectfully request your privacy. “.
