Dancer and DJ ‘tWitch’ Dead at 40

The world is in shock after breaking news revealed that Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who gained popularity after he was a contestant on So You Think You Can Dance and later a DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, has died.

According to initial reports, tWitch — who is married to fellow dancer Alison Holker — reportedly left home without his car, something his wife told the LAPD after she ran to the nearest station. Leaving home without his vehicle was unlike him. Holker was reportedly frantic as she looked for help.

While Holker didn’t share what may have led to tWitch taking his own life, she did leave this statement with People magazine:

Stephen Boss is not only survived by his wife, but also by his beloved stepdaughter and his two biological children, which he shares with Alison. Just two days ago, on Sunday, December 11, Holker took to Instagram to share a video of her and her husband dancing together like they usually do.

Holker and tWitch have been married since 2013. He was just 40 years old at the time of his passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Holker and the rest of tWitch’s loved ones during this heartbreaking time.
