Where is Jesus Campos? Hero Vegas shooting security guard seemingly disappears from public eye

  • Jesus Campos cancelled a string of interviews last week
  • Security guard was shot in the leg by Vegas killer Stephen Paddock

Jesus Campos, the security guard who many people hailed as a hero for his actions during the Las Vegas mass shooting earlier this month has apparently disappeared from the public eye.

Stephen Paddock, right, was potentially limited in his murderous spree by the action so of security guard Jesus Campos. But he seems to have left the public eye recently.

David Hickey, the president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals Of America Union, says that he has not seen Campos for four days.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said that he had been with the security guard in a Las Vegas hotel last Thursday, to help co-ordinate a series of television interviews, but when he returned from attending a meeting in another room, Campos had gone.

The interviews were subsequently cancelled.

Changing timeline

The timeline of what happened on the night of October 1 has changed more than once in the days since as investigators re-evaluate the evidence.

Initial reporting suggested that Campos had approached the room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel from where Stephen Paddock had launched his attack, distracting the gunman and potentially saving lives.

Having been shot in the leg, he assisted officers, pointing them to Paddock’s location and even stayed behind to help hotel guests to evacuate.

Early last week, that timeline was changed by police who said that Campos was shot at 9:59 p.m., six minutes before Paddock started to fire, and then on Friday, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that Campos had been shot at 10:05 pm.

The changing timeline has raised a number of questions about the police investigation and about their official story.

One former worker at the Mandalay Bay has questioned the assertion by police that Campos was investigating an open door alarm, claiming that no such alarms existed at the hotel.

Meanwhile, conspiracy theories have flourished on the internet, with self-appointed detectives claiming to have visited Campos’s house and some theorizing that he was involved in the attack in some way, reviving theories of a second shooter, which have already been categorically ruled out by the police.
