The security guard shot by the Vegas shooter terrorist has gone missing just before he was scheduled to start his TV appearances about the incident.
Jesus Campos vanished just before he was scheduled to appear on numerous television networks last week to share tales of his encounter with the Las Vegas shooter shortly before he attacked the crowd at a country music concert.
“We have had no contact with him…. Clearly, somebody knows where he is,” David Hickey, president of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America union, told the Los Angeles Times.
Hickey was helping Campos get ready for his TV appearances in a Las Vegas hotel on Thursday when the guard disappeared. Hickey told the Times he was in a meeting in one room with MGM, which owns the Mandalay Bay Resort, while Campos sat in the other room but when he returned around 2 p.m., Campos was gone.
Hickey canceled his appearances after being unable to contact Campos. Hickey later was told Campos had gone to a Quick Care clinic, but the clinic said he was never there.
Campos was reportedly shot in the leg by Paddock on the night of the massacre on October 1. But authorities have changed the alleged timeline of the shootings and effectively left more unanswered questions.
Authorities originally said Campos was shot toward the end of Paddock’s attack and aided in distracting the gunman, who then killed himself. Authorities later changed that timeline saying that the guard was shot six minutes before Paddock even began firing into country music concertgoers from the 32nd floor at 9:59 p.m. The story then changed again with Campos being shot at 10:05 p.m., according to Newsweek.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said the timeline change occurred after authorities spoke with MGM Resorts. Officials from the resort claimed the 9:59 p.m. timeline was inaccurate and that Campos used his radio to alert the casino of the shooting while it was happening.
In an earlier interviews with ABC News, Campos said, “I’m fine…I was just doing my job.”
Other reports of the timeline leading up to h shooting raise even more questions about the incident.
Las Vegas Metro Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill had told KNPR, a local NPR affiliate, that Campos was on the 32nd floor to check on a door alarm when he noticed that the stairwell door was blocked. He radioed a maintenance worker, who arrived and when the two started talking, then Paddock started shooting the door of his room.
But a former guard told the LA Times that the Mandalay Bay has no alarm system for doors.
“You know how often people would have to call hotel guests if that was the case,” he told the Times.
The conflicting stories about what happened raises some serious questions about what happened, and Campos could have given some straight answers, nut now he is missing.
