Music rep reveals the woman found dead in the bathtub in his Miami Beach suite was a budding musician.

Music advisor David Bolno, 46, says he had nothing to do with the death of 34-year-old Laura Lozano, who was found in his Miami Beach hotel room, and that she was an aspiring musician whom he advised. Bolno and Lozano were in his room at The Setai Hotel on March 29.

Bolno says he left her at the hotel at 4:30 AM on March 30. At 1 PM, Lozano was found unresponsive in the bathtub with an unknown substance in the room, according to a police report obtained by DailyMail. She was later pronounced dead, though the cause of her death remained unconfirmed. Miami police have said that Bolno is not a person of interest in the case.

Bolno, who lives in Los Angeles with his wife and children, says that Lozano was an aspiring musician and that he arranged for her to “have her own room in his hotel room,” as she had been there recording music the night before.

“She’s a client, and she was going to sign a record deal with me,” says Bolno, a partner at NKSFB, the largest business management firm in the US working with artists in music, film, and television. “I let her stay there; there’s not much more to it.”

“I really liked her. I was helping her make her music,” Bolno continues. “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.”

When hotel staff called the room around 1 PM to tell the guests to check out — and no one picked up — the front desk contacted Bolno. Bolno told them he had already left but that a woman was staying in the suite. Hotel security then visited the room and found Lozano inside, unresponsive. Fire and EMS were called at 1:22 PM.

Police said they noticed an “unknown substance in various areas inside the property” when they entered the room.

While many hotel suites on that particular floor of the luxury hotel are “for two, three, and four-bedroom suites,” an employee at the front desk said that Bolno’s suite was “definitely a one-bedroom ocean-view suite.”
