DJ Awesome was known as one of the top DJs in Atlanta’s thriving hip-hop and strip club scene. However, things began to change after he reported that he found his wife dead on Nov. 23.
DJ Awesome, whose real name is Andre Pugh, called authorities and told them he discovered his wife, Tiffany Pugh, murdered in their home. He said he believed an intruder broke into their home and killed his wife.
After the murder, DJ Awesome posted on his Facebook page, “Why did they take my wife?! My kids’ mom?! Where did I go wrong?”
But authorities found inconsistencies in DJ Awesome’s account of what happened on the night of the murder. According to Fox 5 Atlanta, DJ Awesome hired Adrian Harley to kill his wife.
Harley worked at an Atlanta strip club, Club Onyx, with DJ Awesome.
DJ Awesome and Tiffany Pugh had been married for 11 years and had a son and daughter. Police believe Tiffany was in the process of seeking a divorce.
DJ Awesome and Harley have been charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit burglary.
