Stephen Boss also known as Twitch died last week under truly sad circumstances. The happy television personality had a dark end following years of dealing with some undisclosed issues. As people still try to unpack what happened, more details have been revealed about the hotel he checked into in Los Angeles before fatally wounding himself.
On December 13, 2022, tWitch’s wife, Allison Holker, informed the Los Angeles Police Department that he had left their home without his car and did not return that evening. This was unusual for tWitch, and Allison felt like something was certainly wrong, despite the couple not having any issues before he left their home. They had just celebrated a wedding anniversary a few days prior, and he had just celebrated his grandfather’s birthday. According to reports, tWitch died at The Oak Tree in Encino, CA.
The former Ellen DJ and produced checked into room 249 at 10:30 am on Monday and never left the room. Hotel staff said he appeared fine when he checked in and did not display any signs of distress, even calling ahead to confirm room availability around 9 am. At around 11:15 am the next morning, his body was found in the hotel room’s bathroom by hotel staff after failing to check out. They called 911 and were asked to check his pulse but felt nothing. Paramedics arrived not too long after and confirmed Twitch’s passing . On December 14th it was confirmed Twitch’s autopsy was completed and his body was ready to be released to his family.
Oak Tree Inn is a fairly basic hotel on the busy California street Venture Blvd. Ideal for tourists passing through or entertainers in town for auditions or gigs, Oak Tree has 26 rooms and averages at $107 a night for a room. The hotel reportedly stopped renting rooms out for the rest of the week following the incident. Its unclear why no one heard the shooting, but the hotel manager confirmed that it gets pretty loud and hectic there during they day. “Maybe he did it during the day on Monday. It’s a busy, loud road outside here; it’s possible nobody heard it because of that,” he said.
After reviewing Information Twitch revealed in his letter, investigators were able to conclude the former TV DJ indeed took his own life. Twitch’s family has chosen to not release any information relating to the letter up to this point.
