The Los Angeles Police Department was alerted to Boss missing when his wife, Allison Holker, frantically burst into the police station and reported that tWitch, had left home without his car, which was unlike him. Shortly after, the police responded to calls of a shooting at a hotel room and found Boss’ body with what looked like a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Holker told People magazine, “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
