A wrongful death lawsuit against the Biltmore Hotel moved forward on Monday when a man whose wife was found dead at the LA landmark during an audition for “America’s Got Talent” alleged the hotel destroyed evidence to cover up the slaying of his wife.
The allegation comes as part of a lawsuit filed by Joseph Finley in March 2011.
The body of his wife, Laura, was found in a stairwell at the famed downtown hotel on Oct. 23, 2010.
