New details continue to emerge about So You Think You Can Dance star Stephen “tWitch” Boss’s death by suicide earlier this week. According to a new report from TMZ, Boss left a note at the scene of his death.

Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss Reportedly Left Suicide Note

Law enforcement sources reportedly told TMZ that Boss left an ambiguous note alluding to his past challenges. The outlet reports that it’s not clear exactly what the dancer was referring to in the message.

A source has told the New York Post that there is “absolutely no truth” to the theory (spread by Boss’s former Stomp the Yard: Homecoming co-star Columbus Short) that Boss had lost his life savings.

TMZ also reports that Boss took an Uber from his home to a hotel less than a mile away on Monday morning and put his phone on airplane mode. His body was discovered at the hotel on Tuesday, and it was determined that he died due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Boss’s wife Allison Holker reportedly went to police on Tuesday to report that her husband had left home without warning and wasn’t answering her calls.


Ellen DeGeneres Pays Tribute to Boss

In addition to judging So You Think You Can Dance earlier this year, Boss was also the DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for several years. DeGeneres reacted to Boss’s death on Instagram earlier this week, writing that she was “heartbroken” and calling Boss “pure love and light.”

“He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart,” she continued. “I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children – Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”

On Thursday, DeGeneres told followers that she would “be sharing some of my favorite moments with him.” The first was a clip from the talk show in which the host surprised Boss with an emotional tribute looking back at his time on the show.
