The final moments of tWitch, known as Stephen Boss, before his tragic death have been publicized.
Alison Holker Boss, tWitch's wife, confirmed his death in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. She did not comment on his cause of death, but on Tuesday, the Los Angeles medical examiner revealed that he committed suicide in a hotel.
The manager of the motel where tWitch slept and was discovered dead recounted his final moments. Other details regarding The Ellen DeGeneres disc jockey's passing are not yet accessible to the public.
The management of the Oak Tree Inn revealed in a statement to Radar Online that tWitch checked into the facility without a vehicle on Monday. The building is a 14-minute walk from his Los Angeles residence. A day before his death, he apparently did not appear distressed at check-in.
The motel staff also reported that he did not appear to be in trouble, as he arrived with only a tiny suitcase. The police have subsequently seized his things, and the bag may include his suicide note.
Reportedly, tWitch reserved the room for one night, but failed to check out before 11 a.m. The management then dispatched staff to his room, where the body was discovered in the bathtub.
After witnessing the horrible scenario, the manager phoned 911 immediately. It is uncertain where he shot himself, and there were reportedly no gunshots heard in the area.

Alison Holker Boss wrote a touching homage to their family's "backbone." She said:
"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. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children."
For starters, tWitch began his career as a participant on "The Wade Robson Project" on MTV. Before entering "So You Think You Can Dance" in 2008, he became a famous runner-up on "Star Search."
