What was Stephen "tWitch" Boss' cause of death?

According to TMZ, Stephen's death is a result of suicide. The publication reports that Stephen's wife Allison Holker went to the LAPD worried because Stephen had left the house without his car, which was unlike him. Within a few hours, paramedics were called to a medical emergency at a Los Angeles hotel, where they found Stephen dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

In the wake of his passing, Allison offered a statement to People about Stephen's death.

"It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us," she said. "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."

"I am certain there won't be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children."

She concluded her message by saying, "Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you."
