Stephen “tWitch” Boss’ cause of death was officially ruled as a “gunshot wound to the head”, per the coroner’s report from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner obtained by Page Six. The report also confirmed there was no suspected foul play involved and that he died by suicide. The report also stated that the case has been closed.
Pop icon Jennifer Lopez, 53, and her World of Dance co-star Derek Hough, 37, took to their respective Instagram accounts on Dec. 14 to mourn the late dancer Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss. “Twitch was such a light and a beautiful soul… Shocked and deeply saddened. My heart breaks for @sir_twitch_alot, his wife and children Sending you love and strength,” the “On The Floor” songstress captioned a group photo with the fallen actor. Twitch, who died on Wednesday, previously starred on The Ellen DeGeneres Show as the comedian’s DJ, and later became an executive producer on the hit show.
Derek wrote a lengthy post on his Instagram to mourn his late friend and also used the same photo as JLo. “My heart is aching for @allisonholker [Allison Holker] and their beautiful family during this time. My mind is clinging to memories of the dear friend we have all lost,” his post read.
“When I think of twitch I think of Wisdom, Love, Light and Laughter. He brought joy to everyone he encountered and was an inspiration to all. It’s gonna take some time to fully process this. May you rest in peace my friend. We love you.”
Ellen DeGeneres, 64, also took to her show’s Instagram account to share a tribute post for tWitch. “I’m heartbroken. tWitch was pure love and light. He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart.
I will miss him,” the TV personality captioned the photo of them hugging. “Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”
