America's Got Talent Auditioner Suing Hotel For Wife's Death

americas got talent auditioner blames hobos for wifes death

Back in October, we were sad to report that America's Got Talent auditioner Joe Finley's wife was found dead in a hotel after falling eight floors to her death, following a night of heavy partying with drugs and alcohol.

Now, in a bizarre and upsetting turn, Finley believes a homeless person snuck into their hotel and killed his wife, and he's filing a lawsuit against the hotel for wrongful death.

In the lawsuit, Finley claims that his wife wouldn't have died if the hotel "would have done a better job of keeping out transients."

The investigation is still underway, but Finley believes his case is solid, because the hotel has had other recent reports of transients, and he saw items in the hotel staircase that indicate the presence of a homeless person, including "filthy clothing, bottles full of urine, and dirty blankets."

Here's what Joe Finley's lawyer Sean Macias had to say about it:

"The tragic death of Laura Finley was preventable and The Biltmore failed to provide basic security measures and precautions."

"There has been prior serious criminal incidents at the hotel. They were understaffed with security and they had construction on first and second floors where uninvited transients and third parties were staying."

Such a tragedy. Guess we'll find out soon enough if a homeless person caused Laura Finley's death, or if it was in fact drug-related, as it seemed to be when we first heard about this.

Thoughts???

    who is this dude? his wife wouldn't be dead if she didn't do drugs or was inebriated! go mourn your wife's death instead of trying to get paid.

    Well, if that doesn't work, you could always try to sue your drug dealer for selling your wife a controlled substance.Then if THAT doesn't work, you could sue the family of the guy who invented tall buildings……yeah, that's the ticket. Idiot.

    All Joe wants is to get justice for his wife's death. That's understandable. I mean he hired Macias, total pitbull for justice. Wasn't Macias the guy who represented Gourjian in the Conrad Murray attorney issue… Wow good call Joe!!

    Okay, the Biltmore would have security cameras in the hallways, right? They could see if some homeless guy went into her hotel room and killed her. Where was Joe when his wife fell out of the hotel? Did she fall out the window?

    I cannot understand why this guy would hire Sean Macias. The only pit bull thing about him is his incredibly huge head. It's massive. Come to think of it that Macias character owes me money. My advice to the client aka suspect is that he should go hire Mark Geragos or even Matt Geragos the lesser known but equally good brother of Mark. He is far more experienced in these matters then that Macias character!!!!!

    So it wasn't all of the drugs and alcohol she took, it was a homeless guy? How did he get into her room? Did she just let him in? Was there money missing? Was she sexually assaulted? Did he just go in her room and throw her off a balcony for no reason? I call bull. The husband is just trying to figure out a way to make cash off her death.
