Whodunit? America’s Got Talent Subpoenaed In Murder Mystery

Filed under: Legal MattersReality TV


This mystery needs solving and this guy isn't going to rest until it is.

Last year, a contestant auditioning for America's Got Talent came back to his hotel room to find that his wife was murdered. Ever since then, Joe Finley has been trying to figure out the puzzle that is her death, but the police haven't come up with many leads.

This afternoon, a subpoena was sent to the show’s production company, asking for all video and photos of the day for all of the contestants. It's Joe's hope that some of this footage and/or sign in material from that day's shooting might lead investigators to his wife's killer.

Hopefully it will, since this guy sounds like he needs closure real bad. Our heart goes out to him and we hope whoever committed this horrendous crime is brought to justice.

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

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersSad SadReality TV

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.

Drugs To Blame!

americas got talent auditioners wife found dead after drug related death

This is a truly terrible, sad story, which could have easily been avoided!

America's Got Talent auditioner Joe Finley's wife was found dead after falling eight floors to her death, following a night of heavy partying with drugs and alcohol.

Finley had reported his wife missing the morning before his audition.

Here's what Joe had to say about it:

"She was supposed to get us breakfast because I had to get up and get in line [to audition]. She didn’t come back so I just left and got in line and figured she was still out. I didn’t think anything of it."

More from Joe:

"We were partying, we took ecstasy, but it wasn't out of control. She was really happy, I was happy, we were excited about my music. I wrote her a poem. We went down to a jazz bar in the hotel and then took a tour of the hotel because apparently it's an historic place. We were having a great time."

So, so sad and completely avoidable! Had they partied more responsibly, this would never have happened.

Our thoughts are with Joe Finley and his family.
