The surprised housekeeper found the DJ from the Ellen DeGeneres show who took his own life in a hotel room in Los Angeles this week, as reported by the hotel management to DailyMail.com.
At around 10.30 am on Monday, Stephen tWitch Boss, 40, a seasoned executive producer of Ellen’s show, registered into room 249 at the Oak Tree Inn in Encino.
Rakesh, the manager, stated, “He entered his room and did not exit.”
The housekeeper opened the door to check on the room on Tuesday at 11.15 am. Despite the absence of anyone, his belongings were present.
Upon inspecting the restroom, she came across blood spatter.
She was frightened. This has never happened here before.
The 911 operator directed us to check his pulse, but there was none, and he was pronounced dead upon the arrival of paramedics and police.
Staff described the situation as terrible and asserted that the man took his own life, but no one heard the gunshot.
He left the residence on Monday without his car, and after not returning by Tuesday – being absent overnight – his wife rushed to report him missing.
On Wednesday morning, Boss’ relatives arrived to support his devastated wife and children at his six-bedroom Encino home, embracing his tearful son as he rushed out to greet them.
According to one family member, they declined to comment.
Stephen is the father of three children: Zaia, 3, Maddox Laurel, 6, and Weslie Renae, 14, who was born in Alison’s previous relationship but was adopted by Stephen.
The So You Think You Can Dance star and his dance instructor wife Alison, 34, met on the show in 2010.
As per the sign on the family’s front lawn, daughter Weslie is set to enroll at Notre Dame University with the class of 2026; therefore, the suicide has overshadowed her promising future.
She is also involved in modeling for athletic gear and serves as a young influencer for companies like her parents’ Dick’s Sporting Goods.
She also plays for her school’s soccer team.
Just three days before his death, the couple was celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary when they made an appearance on the show in November.
They were happy and hopeful about the future.
Boss and his wife posted a heartfelt video of them dancing online to commemorate the occasion.
He started working on Ellen’s show in 2014 and continued until 2022 when he was promoted to executive producer.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner concluded that he took his own life and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Us Weekly confirms that there were no indications of foul play and the case is now closed.
