Instead of wiping my hard drive clean, I created a new user with admin privileges. I then logged in as the new user and completely deleted (using secure delete option) the old user. After a restart, I see that there is no music in iTunes, no pictures in iPhoto, and All My Files shows absolutely nothing. Which is exactly what I'd expect. I also looked in the Music, Movies, Pictures folders and found nothing in them (apart from the basic system-generated files). Trash is empty. No external devices are connected. Time Machine is disabled.
Then I go to About this Mac, and click on Storage. I see 50GB of music, 80GB of images, etc. Where is this 50GB of audio? There are no audio files I can find. I went to Disk Utility and tried the erase free space option -- but this didn't solve anything. I've tried a simple restart. No luck.
