Vegas Survivor and Attorney Says Mandalay may be Manipulating Evidence and Hiding Campos
Attorney Brian Claypool was one of the fans in attendance at the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival in Las Vegas, NV. The 3 day festival ended violently when a gunman opened fire on the crowd from the window of his Mandalay Bay, killing 59 people and injuring over 500. Along with the rest of the world, Claypool questions how this was possible, and more proactively, why isn’t a thorough investigation being conducted.
Claypool believes that MGM/Mandalay Bay is tampering with evidence and concealing crucial evidence. The disappearance of Jesus Campos has given rise to much suspicion. Jesus Campos was shot by the alleged gunman at Mandalay Bay while he was on duty as a security guard. He disappeared moments before he was scheduled to break silence in television interviews to speak about his account of the events. Claypool says, “The fact that Jesus Campos has vanished suggests that MGM is hiding evidence and is worried that Campos will tell the truth. They are manipulating him and the evidence to minimize liability.”
Brian Claypool further points out the lack of urgency with the investigation, bringing to light the fact that no one has been transparent in the investigation. Claypool says, “ Not a SINGLE person is demanding the release of surveillance video of Stephen Paddock in elevators.” He questions the fact that MGM has yet to release housekeeping records to prove that Padock’s room was cleaned and nothing out of the ordinary was noticed. Nor has the FBI or anyone in the US asked for a security task force to dig into this and conduct an “independent” investigation. Brian Claypool believes that the hotel broke its own rules and endangered individuals by allowing Paddock to use the freight elevator
According to Claypool, the reason for this is that the indelible image of Sin City Las Vegas and the money it generates is much more important to the stakeholders than getting to the truth to improve security and prevent another massacre from happening. He believes all of this evidence indicates a cover up of MGM’s partial responsibility for the attack due to their weakened security for a high spending gambler.
Brian currently represents one victim of the shooting and will be filing a lawsuit. He expects to be representing additional families/victims in the very near future.
