Las Vegas Security Guard Jesus Campos Disappearance Baffles Media, Massacre Timeline Changes Again
Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard shot by gunman Stephen Paddock - who opened fire on thousands of concertgoers in Las Vegas - has reportedly vanished moments before he was scheduled to speak to the press.
Campos was booked for five interviews Thursday night, all of which were mysteriously canceled. As of Friday, his whereabouts are reportedly unknown.
ABC News journalist Stephanie Wash, who was present to interview Campos on Thursday night, tweeted that the guard had left before their interview.
“We were in a room & we came out & he was gone,” Wash tweeted late on Thursday, quoting David Hickey, president of the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, which represents Campos.
Wash later tweeted that Campos’ whereabouts were “unknown.”
Campos was also scheduled to appear on Fox News, but Sean Hannity confirmed that Campos had “canceled.”
When investigative reporter Laura Loomer went to Campos’ house after it was reported that he canceled his interview with Hannity, she filmed a Periscope of a woman at the door, who told her that she was not allowed to talk.
“We can’t talk about stuff right now,” she said. “Sorry, I can’t talk right now.”
Loomer was met with armed security officers, who told her to leave the property.
“What I want to know is: who is preventing the family from talking? We have confirmation right now that there is a gag order on the family of Jesus Campos. If Jesus Campos is truly a hero, there is no reason he or his family wouldn’t be allowed to talk about what he saw and what he did,” Loomer said, according to Got News.
The reporter was also banned from attending a press conference held by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).
