    An aspiring singer named Laura Lozano was found dead inside of a Miami hotel room rented by music executive David Bolno on March 30th.

    In an interview with The Daily Mail, Bolno confirmed that Lozano had been staying in his room, but that he “wasn’t there” when she passed away. Hotel security footage reportedly shows Bolno leaving his room at the Setai Hotel around 4:30 a.m. local time on March 30th; nine hours later, Lozano’s body was discovered lying face-up in a bathtub by hotel staff. Police also reportedly found an “unknown substance” suspected to be narcotics inside of the hotel room.

    “It was a terrible tragedy. I had vacated the room in the earlier part of the morning so I wasn’t there when they found her,” Bolno told The Daily Mail. “It was really sad, she was someone I really liked, and she was a good person.”

    “She’d been there because she was recording music the night before,” Bolno added. “She’s a client and she was going to sign a record deal with me. I helped her make music.”

    TMZ reports that Bolno is cooperating with police and is not currently considered a person of interest. Because someone ordered room service to the room at around 8:00 a.m., there is evidence to suggest Lozano was still alive following Bolno’s departure.


    According to Variety, Bolno is a partner at business management firm NKSFB. His client list includes Justin Bieber, Drake, Post Malone, and Pharrell Williams, as well as Scooter Braun/Ithaca Holdings.
