DJ Stephen “Twitch” bossThe wife spoke strongly to the police on Tuesday morning…she knew something was terribly wrong, because he would leave the house without warning and cut off all contact.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ when Alison Holker Stephenson went into the LAPD branch on Tuesday to report her missing, stressing that tWitch’s disappearance was out of character. She told police he simply walked out of their house — no argument or trouble — and wouldn’t return any of her calls.
According to our law enforcement sources, they returned Alison to the family home and did a brief search of the property for any video or clues as to where he had gone.
We’re told Alison was so obsessed with tWitch’s behavior that officers considered listing him as a “critical missing persons” case.
But, as TMZ first reported, a 911 call came in shortly after Allison met the cops … saying tWitch’s body was found at a motel less than a mile from his home. He was a DJ and TV host. He died by suicide — a gunshot wound to his head.
We spoke to the staff at the motel who said that Stephen had checked in with a small bag on Monday morning and was only staying for one night. The staff told us Stephen. He doesn’t seem upsetAnd his body was found on Tuesday after failing to confirm on time.
Celebrity and fan tributes continue to pour in for tWitch from the likes of Justin Timberlakewho has known tWitch for over 20 years and Ellen DeGeneres He called it “pure love and light.”
