There’s an online theory circulating that claims Stephen “tWitch” Boss and his family were in bad shape financially at the time of his suicide … something we’re told simply isn’t true.
People playing detective on social media are working to figure out what may have led tWitch to take his own life. One popular theory — based on some of the accounts he followed on Instagram — was that he had invested heavily and lost big in cryptocurrency.
Sources with direct knowledge tell us that is false — Stephen was not experiencing any sort of financial hardship in the time leading up to his suicide. What’s more — our law enforcement sources say no one from the family has mentioned any sort of financial issues with Stephen.
As for the social media chatter, a video posted by actor Columbus Short also helped to fuel the fire — where the actor shared his own theory that tWtich may have had money issues.
Our sources say Stephen knew Columbus through the dance world — and their personal interactions were always directly associated with working environments.
TMZ broke the story — tWitch’s wife, Allison Holker, told cops Tuesday she became worried about her husband when he left their home without warning a day earlier and wasn’t answering his phone.
As we first told you, tWitch had checked into a motel less than a mile from his home Monday carrying a small bag. Hotel employees checked in on his room Tuesday after he missed checkout and discovered him dead in the bathroom from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
