MGM Contradicts Claim Guard Jesus Campos Is Missing — Vegas Timeline Thrown Into Question Again
On Saturday, a representative for Campos revealed the hotel security guard checked into a clinic moments before he was set to speak to the media about the Las Vegas Massacre.
Daily Mail UK reports:
The security guard is yet to be interviewed since he was shot by Stephen Paddock on October 1 on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.
On Thursday, Campos was due to appear at a press conference after being given an award for his bravery but he disappeared.
His union representative revealed on Saturday that Campos was taken to a clinic shortly afterwards but he did not know which.
‘Right now I’m just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is. It’s highly unusual.
Jesus Campos has gone missing once again. The Union representative who recently issued a statement to the press on Campos’ behalf says he doesn’t know where he is now. After Campos checked into a clinic, he appears to have vanished once again.
FOX News reports:
The Mandalay Bay security guard who disappeared last week moments before he was scheduled to break his silence in television interviews has not been seen since he went to a walk-in health clinic, his union president said.[…]A spokesperson at the UMC Quick Care, which has eight locations throughout the Las Vegas area, told Fox News on Monday that they had “heard nothing” about Campos visiting them.Multiple requests from Fox News for SPFPA to comment on the matter were not returned Monday.
Fox News contributor Randy Sutton believes Campos was told to “shut the hell up,” about his role in the Las Vegas attack.

In yet another strange move by law enforcement, Mandalay Bay hotel security guard Jesus Campos is now being identified as a “victim.” Las Vegas Police Officer and Spokesman Larry Hadfield is refusing to reveal any details about Campos, who as The Gateway Pundit previously reporter, has gone missing.
Fox News reports:
“He is a victim in this and we don’t discuss victims,” Las Vegas Police Officer and Spokesman Larry Hadfield told Fox News on Tuesday.
Hadfield said the department is not planning on holding any future press conferences, absent the development of new details.
MGM Resorts International, the hotel’s parent company, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: “Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing. He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.” The newspaper suggested that based on that statement, MGM seems to know Campos’ whereabouts.
On Tuesday afternoon, MGM released a statement saying Jesus Campos is not missing and wants to wait for the proper time to reveal his side of the story on the Las Vegas shooting.
Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
“But a statement released this morning by MGM, the parent company of Mandalay Bay, suggests something that he’s simply shy and doesn’t want media attention.
MGM told the Review-Journal in a Tuesday email: “Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing. He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.”
Campos, who was shot in the right thigh by Paddock as he approached the gunman’s suite at Mandalay Bay, has become a critical witness in the mass shooting because the police timeline of the events of Oct. 1 has changed twice.”
Amid the anger and confusion brought upon by an ever-changing timeline by the Las Vegas Police Department and FBI, MGM Resorts International has hired an elite crisis management firm. The move comes on the same day Sheriff Joe Lombardo claims there is little difference between police and Casino timelines.
MGM Resorts International has said otherwise — twice. Now, MGM is “debunking,” another claim. Fed up with the continuously shifting timeline, The Gateway Pundit previously reported via the Las Vegas Review-Journal that MGM Resorts International hired an elite crisis management firm.
Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:
The casino operator selected New York-based corporate communications firm Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher to assist in responding to inquires from media and investors regarding the investigation into the Mandalay Bay shooting.
Joele Frank has likely received an initial crisis fee in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and would bill MGM from $500 to $1,000 an hour ”for many, many hours,” said Ronn Torossian, chief executive officer of 5WPR, a renowned PR firm headquartered in New York.
