Lakeisha Holloway Suspect in Deadly Las Vegas Crash – GAVE POLICE EXPLANATION But They Won’t Disclose!
Lakeisha Holloway was identified today as the crazed driver who intentionally plowed through pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night.
Her three year-old child was in the backseat.
** She parked the car and advised the valet to call 911.
** Victims from Canada, Oregon, California, Florida… etc.
** People came up and banged on her windows but she kept on driving.
Police said she was “stoic” when she was arrested and she told them why she committed the deadly crime but that they will not disclose her intentions(?)
Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Holloway offered an explanation for the attacks when she was arrested:
“She made statements on the scene at the point of arrest. As I mentioned the investigation is ongoing. But we haven’t determined to an exact fact what the motive was. We believe she has some disassociation with the father of her child in events prior to the event. Her being in Las Vegas approximately a week and homeless and residing in her vehicle… She did (offer and explanation for the attacks) and I’m not comfortable disclosing that at this point because it is an ongoing investigation. I can’t go any further into that comment.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said this:
We’re not 100% ruling out the possibility of terrorism. We are working through that. I do not believe it was an act of terrorism.
Holloway was ‘stoic’ after the attack.
Police describe #LasVegasCrash suspect as 'stoic.' Suspect named as Lakeisha Holloway, 24, was non-threatening, coherent when arrested.

Pacific University officials say 4 student wrestlers are among the dozens of people injured when Holloway allegedly ran down the pedestrians in Las Vegas Sunday night. One person died.
Police say they believe Holloway – driving a car with Oregon license plates – intentionally ran down people on the sidewalk outside the Paris Hotel & Casino at 6:30 p.m.
Oregon court records show that Holloway was convicted of operating a vehicle without driving privileges and driving uninsured in December 2011 in Multnomah County.
