Two days after his wife was found dead, an America's Got Talent contestant named Joe Finley has made a public plea: Someone killed her!
Laura Finley was found dead in a stairwell at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on early Saturday morning. She was in town because Joe wanted to audition for the NBC competition.
Considered a person of interest, Joe was actually arrested for drug possession the day Laura died. He's admitted both he and his wife were on ecstasy the night she was found and that he last saw Laura alive around 3 a.m. on Saturday.
Her body was discovered five and a half hours later.
"Somebody threw her off that railing," Joe told TMZ today, adding that Laura's death was "100% not an accident" and, of course, that he did not kill her.Joe says he awoke early Saturday morning and his wife was missing. He then asked the hotel to page her over the public address system - and then left for his audition around 2 p.m. Cops stopped him on the way, showed him a picture of his wife's injured face and then took him into questioning.
After a few hours, the police released him and Joe still went to the audition, despite admitting that he thought his wife was dead.
