So You Think You Can Dance judge Stephen "tWitch" Boss has died at the age of 40 from apparent suicide.

TWitch was found on Tuesday, December 13 in a Los Angeles hotel dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, TMZ reported

Law enforcement sources told the website that tWitch's wife, former Dancing with the Stars professional dancer and So You Think You Can Dance contestant Allison Holker, frantically ran into a Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday because Stephen had left their home without his car.

Leaving home without his car was allegedly out of character for tWitch, according to Allison.

And then around 11:15AM that same day, paramedics reportedly received a call for a medical emergency at an Los Angeles hotel, where they eventually found tWitch.

The So You Think You Can Dance judge was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the website.

Allison provided the media with a statement on Wednesday, but she did not reveal the cause of twitch's death or any additional details surrounding his tragic passing.

"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.
