So You Think You Can Dance judge Stephen "tWitch" Boss' cause of death has been revealed along with additional details about his passing.

TMZ reported on Wednesday that tWitch was found dead on Tuesday, December 13 in a Los Angeles motel from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner, it's been confirmed that tWitch died by suicide, Us Weekly reported.

The medical examiner revealed that tWitch died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

There were "no signs of foul play" and the case regarding tWitch's death has been officially closed.

The former So You Think You Can Dance All-Star and The Ellen DeGeneres Show deejay was 40 at the time of his passing.

TWitch took his own life at the Oak Tree Inn in Encino, CA, which is less than one mile from his house. The inn is currently not renting out rooms in the wake of the late dancer and choreographer's death, Us reported.

A source told the magazine that tWitch checked into the motel on Monday, December 12.

The source claimed that motel staff attempted to contact tWitch the next day, on Tuesday morning, after he failed to check out of his room. After management entered the room, his body was reportedly found in the bathroom.

Paramedics were reportedly called to the scene at around 11:15AM that day.

The motel manager told Us that "everything was normal, nothing was weird" when tWitch stayed at the inn and also that tWitch was alone.

TWitch's wife, former Dancing with the Stars pro and So You Think You Can Dance contestant Allison Holker, had allegedly run into a Los Angeles Police Department location on Tuesday frantic because tWitch had left their home without his car, which was out of character for her husband.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Allison knew something was terribly wrong because, in addition to tWitch leaving without his car, he stopped communication with his wife and wouldn't answer her phone calls.

Allison allegedly said there was no argument or issue that prompted tWitch to leave.

Police reportedly accompanied Allison back to her house after checking around her property for any clues about tWitch's whereabouts.

TMZ reported that Allison was so insistent on tWitch's behavior being odd and unusual that officers considered listing him as a "critical missing persons" case.

Motel staffers also informed the website that tWitch did not seem upset or distressed when he checked in.

TWitch is survived by Allison and their three children: daughter Weslie, 14, son Maddox, 6, and daughter Zaia, 3.

Allison welcomed Weslie from a previous relationship, but tWitch adopted her as his daughter.

Allison provided the media with a statement on Wednesday, but she did not reveal any details about tWitch's death.

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

She continued, "To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt."

"I am certain there won't be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory," the dancer and choreographer concluded.

"We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you."

Allison and tWitch had just celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary several days before tWitch allegedly took his own life.

Ellen DeGeneres also put out a statement regarding tWitch's unexpected passing.

"I'm heartbroken. tWitch was pure love and light," the longtime talk show host wrote Wednesday on Instagram alongside a photo of the pair hugging.

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

Married by So You Think You Can Dance co-executive producer Jeff Thacker, Allison and tWitch exchanged vows at SYTYCD creator and former judge Nigel Lythgoe's vineyard and winery in Paso Robles, CA, in December 2013.

Maddox was born in March 2016, and then Allison gave birth to Zaia in November 2019.

TWitch had served as the DJ for The Ellen DeGeneres Show after rising to fame as a contestant Season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2008, when he finished as the runner-up.

Allison and tWitch were also All-Star dancers on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance in 2010, when the pair connected romantically.

TWitch returned to So You Think You Can Dance as a member of its judging panel for Season 15, which aired on Fox in 2018, and then again for Season 17, which aired on the network this past summer.

His last Instagram posting was on Monday, when he and Allison uploaded a video of them dancing a choreographed routine in front of their Christmas tree.

TWitch was also a semifinalist on MTV's The Wade Robson Project in 2003 as well as the runner-up on Star Search.
