Stephen Boss’ Wife Tells Cops They Did Not Fight Before His Suicide
Ellen DeGeneres’ longtime DJ Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss had no argument with his wife before he left their home unannounced on Monday and killed himself, she reportedly told police.
Boss’ wife of nine years, Allison Holker, contacted Los Angeles police on Tuesday to report him missing, saying he had left without a word a day earlier and wasn’t returning her calls, TMZ reported, citing law enforcement sources.
Holker insisted there had been no fight or dispute that precipitated his departure, just three days after their wedding anniversary, and frantically described his lack of contact as extremely out of character.
Police accompanied Holker back to the family home for a brief search for any clues about his disappearance – but soon after a 911 call came in from a nearby motel, where a housekeeper had discovered Boss dead from a gunshot wound.
Boss, 40, and Holker, 34, shared three children: Zaia, 3, Maddox Laurel, 6, and Weslie Renae, 14, who was born in Alison’s previous relationship but adopted by Stephen.
The couple appeared to be happy and planning for the future when they were interviewed on the Jennifer Hudson Show in November, and even talking of plans to try for another baby.
‘I love the little babies, I love them. It’s a constant conversation,’ said Boss.
