Joe tells us he last saw his wife Laura Finley at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles at 3:00 AM Saturday morning ... after the two popped the drug ecstasy.

Laura was pronounced dead at 8:25 AM.

Joe was named a person of interest in the death -- but tells TMZ he did not murder his wife adding,  "100% this was not an accident."

Joe says cops told him that someone went to the front desk and requested a key to their room at around 1:30 AM, an hour and a half before Finley claims he last saw his wife.

Oh geez. Do we have the desk clerk that claims someone came in a got a key that wasn't supposed to? What a FREAKIN" Lame alibi. NO ONE is going to give a key to a room to someone without the registered person's name.

NEXT, she took a swan dive off the top stair in the stairwell? Okay, I thought maybe off the balconey but this guy is trying to say someone grabbed his wife, drug her off to the stairwell and threw her down the stairwell to the bottom. YEAH RIGHT!!!

In this particular photo, her body language is saying "KEEP AWAY FROM ME, YOU JERK!" (notice she is leaning AWAY from him)

I'm sorry, but I couldn't care less about idiots like these two who do drugs. You do the drugs, you face the consequences. So friggin' immature, IMO.

I was just thinking... (and I know nothing about either of these people)... couldn't he have been so grief stricken he came up with alternative reason to her killing herself? It's really common with any death for people to be in denial for the reason.

By the way, for those of you who read that too quickly, I'm saying maybe he had to come up with an alternate reality than her committing suicide, if that's what happened.

Strange, most of their picture of them together shows her slightly leaning away from him.

what i don't understand is that it says they took ecstasy and that was the last time he saw her. that's not exactly a drug that would make you not see your wife after taking it. now, if it was lsd, it would make more sense to not see each other..but ecstasy, doesn't make sense. and i don't know anyone who would want to commit suicide on ecstasy...maybe when they are coming down if it's a tough come down, but i dunno, it's not making sense.

I personally know them and at one time they were a loving couple, this is really a shame and she will be missed.

OooooNooo!    

Aren't these two clowns a little old (and pudgy) to be dropping Ecstasy at their age? They should have been a feature on Letterman's Stupid Humans feature.
