Campos Goes Missing
Jesus Campos, the security guard who is evidenced as possibly being in the united states illegally, and is not registered as a casino security guard employee was taken to an urgent care facility for a wound he is alleged to have sustained after having been shot in the upper thigh by a high powered rifle.
Note: Nevada security guards are under the jurisdiction of the Nevada Private Investigator’s Licensing Board. Employees are registered and issued work cards. Casino security guards are required to have a work card. Jesus Campos does not appear on the registrar for the Nevada Private Investigator’s Licensing Board.
David Hickey, the president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union, told the Times he hadn’t seen or heard from Campos in four days.
“We have had no contact with him… Clearly, somebody knows where he is,” Hickey said, adding that Campos was meant to attend a meeting with MGM representatives — a meeting he never attended as he disappeared from the waiting room shortly before Hickey walked out to get him.
“When I got in touch with the other union member, I was told Campos was taken to [health clinic] Quick Care,” Hickey said. He explained he hadn’t heard from Campos afterward and told reporters that interviews with the security guard were cancelled.
A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told Fox News that they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting them.
Why would someone with a bullet wound from a high powered rifle choose to go to an urgent care facility rather than Las Vegas’ UMC main emergency room? Additionally, why would Campos take off from the waiting room where it is intended that he meet with MGM Representatives and apparently the press as well at some point?
Campos claims he “wanted to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing”. When does a witness to a devastating mass shooting get to choose when he will meet with his employer that stands to lose huge amounts of money in law suits? I guess when he ups and disappears of his own accord? Was it because he had to get his story straight in his head?
The following day however, an MGM spokesperson released a statement that “Campos is laying low in an effort to avoid media attention”. So much for the Union Representatives being in the loop.
Tucker Carlson Editorial – Campos Goes to Mexico
Apparently Campos left the United States and ventured to Mexico, with authorities claiming it had been a pre-planned visit. Exactly one week to the day following the Las Vegas mass shooting, Campos re-enters the United States at the San Ysidro border crossing. Carlson asks compelling pertinent questions in the editorial below.
The Ellen Degeneres Show
On the Ellen Degeneres show, Campos and Ellen discuss the first moments of Campos’ actions. To sum up that discussion – Campos was reportedly investigating a door alarm that had sounded on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino when he was shot in the leg by alleged shooter Stephen Paddock. Campos states in his interview with Ellen that he stayed on site even after being shot to give police his account of what happened and help them piece events together. So you have a man that has been shot, is bleeding, and certainly must be in pain – and he’s not being put in an ambulance?
An October 4th Business Insider article has an entirely different account of the events:
“The security guard had been responding to customer’s calls about a shooting, which had begun at 10.05pm. One customer was a man who had served in the military and was able to identify that shots were coming from directly above his room that was towards the end of a hallway.
On the 32nd floor, noticing an ajar door, the security guard began approaching and was then hit by some of the hundreds of bullets Paddock fired into the hallway.
Police, who had been checking the 31st floor, arrived “in a matter of seconds” to find the security guard at 10.17pm, who was able to identify the shooter’s room.”
Las Vegas Metro Police Release Timeline of Events
Las Vegas Metro Police Department has released an official timeline statement on their twitter account.
According to LVMPD shots were fired on the crowd at 10:05pm, evidenced by closed-circuit television from the concert venue.
At 10:12pm, the first two officers on the scene arrive on the 31st floor.
Why did officers arrive on the 31st floor if Campos had already contacted his dispatch and explained he was on the 32nd floor and shots had been fired?
One might suppose that police were taking caution and waiting for backup before moving to the 32nd floor. However this does not appear to be the case as according to LVMPD the first two officers arrived on the 32nd floor at 10:17pm where they see Campos and he gives them the exact location of the suspects room. No additional officers arrive until 10:26pm.
Does this inconsistency have any connection to the Business Insider account of a customer calling in that he believed shots had been fired and were coming from directly above his room?
There are still no answers as to how Paddock got an arsenal to his hotel room without being noticed. Things just don’t add up and clearly Campos as well as MGM/Mandalay Bay have much to cover up; and perhaps LVMPD does as well. Campos appears to be using someone else’s social security number, he appears to be unlicensed as a security guard with the Nevada Private Investigator’s Licensing Board; and the question remains, why did officers take more than 10 minutes to arrive on the 32nd floor? And a full 20 minutes for the first of two backup teams to arrive on the scene?
