Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss: Unveiling the Tragic Loss and the Quest for Understanding

Autopsy report reveals no substances in tWitch's system. A heartfelt interview sheds light on his struggle with seeking help.

In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the entertainment world grapples with the loss of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, the beloved professional dancer and DJ. As the autopsy report surfaces, shedding light on the circumstances surrounding his passing, his widow, Allison Holker, opens up about his untold struggles in a poignant interview. Together, they provide glimpses into a story of resilience, love, and the pursuit of healing.

The recent autopsy report reveals that there were no drugs or alcohol present in tWitch’s system at the time of his tragic death. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s confirmation of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in December left everyone searching for answers. However, the report also emphasizes that according to Holker, Boss had no history of suicide attempts or suicidal thoughts, dispelling any preconceived notions about his mental state.

In a candid conversation with Hoda Kotb on “Today,” Holker shared her profound shock and the overwhelming disbelief that enveloped their lives following Boss’s passing. She highlighted his unwavering commitment to being a source of strength for others, perhaps at the cost of seeking help for himself. It is a deeply relatable struggle, reminding us that even the brightest smiles can conceal hidden battles.

Boss, known for his infectious energy and talent as a DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” shared a beautiful bond with Holker, both having competed on “So You Think You Can Dance.” Their marriage in 2013 brought together a blended family, including Holker’s daughter Weslie, whom Boss lovingly adopted, as well as their two biological children, Maddox and Zaia. The tragedy has left a void in their lives, but they find solace in the belief that Boss resides among the stars, forever watching over them.

Explaining the loss to their younger children has proven challenging. Their innocent inquiries about when their father will return or if he will come back “older” only deepen the sorrow and longing. Yet, as a devoted mother, Holker draws strength from her children’s resilience and unwavering love. On Mother’s Day, she expressed her gratitude for the profound gift of motherhood, cherishing every moment with her precious little ones.

The untimely passing of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss has shaken the entertainment industry to its core. As we mourn this profound loss, it is a stark reminder of the importance of destigmatizing mental health struggles and fostering a culture of seeking support. In memory of Boss, may his journey inspire empathy, understanding, and a commitment to creating spaces where individuals can find solace and healing. Together, let us remember the legacy of a remarkable artist who touched countless lives with his talent, joy, and unwavering spirit.
