Mysterious "Missing" Vegas Security Guard Left The Country Days After Vegas Massacre

Tyler Durden's picture

The mystery surrounding Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos grows increasingly bizarre by the day.  Following Stephen Paddock's October 1st massacre in Las Vegas, Campos, who may or may not have been shot by Paddock, flaked on a press conference that he reportedly scheduled then went missing for days before suddenly resurfacing on the 'Ellen' show.

Now, Fox News has uncovered Customs and Border Patrol documents showing that Campos apparently crossed the border into Mexico days after the Vegas massacre.  Campos reportedly crossed the border at the same place in January but, for whatever reason, was driving a rental car this time around instead of his own vehicle.  Per the New York Post:

Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos mysteriously left the country just days after the Las Vegas massacre, a report says.


Customs and Border Patrol documents obtained by Fox News show that the 25-year-old entered the United States from Mexico at the San Ysidro border crossing in California — one week after the mass shooting.


It’s unclear how long Campos was out of the country. The documents only show that he entered back into the US.


The young man reportedly crossed the border at the same location in January.


While Campos was driving his own vehicle with Nevada plates during that trip, sources told Fox that he took a rental car this time around — which was registered in California.

Jesus Campos

Of course, this raises a number of new questions including, but certainly not limited to, the following: (1) why would the FBI allow a material witness to flee the country during an ongoing investigation, (2) if Campos was shot, why/how did he spend hours in a car on a road trip to Mexico rather recuperating in a hospital bed and (3) if this was a "pre-planned" visit, as his union suggests, then why did investigators seem so baffled by his disappearance.

The new information raises even more questions about Stephen Paddock’s Oct. 1 massacre — such as why authorities would allow Campos to leave the country in the middle of their investigation or how the security guard managed to make it down to Mexico with a gunshot wound to his leg.


Campos reportedly took a bullet from gunman Stephen Paddock at the start of his killing spree.


The union that represents him told Fox that they were aware of his trip to Mexico and claimed it was pre-planned visit. What’s unclear, though, why the group didn’t report his whereabouts in the days following the massacre.

So what say you?  Was this just an innocent, pre-planned trip to Mexico or is there a lot more to the Jesus Campos saga?

Campos had to go check in with the cartel so he could either 1) get paid 2) not blow his cover with the cartel, or 3) both.

I love driving rental cars for hours after being shot in the leg. I love leaving the country when I'm a material witness to the worst shooting America has ever seen. This is normal, nothing to see here. Why are you people still staring at me, don't you see the dangling keys over there?

Langley has the worst script writers this world has ever spit up.

They make Hollyweird look absolutely Shakespearian.

This LV false flag was 

1) a drug deal gone sour

2) a gun deal gone sour

3) a human trafficking deal gone sour

3) some other CIA racket gone sour

Campos is a loose end, and Paddock is looking more and more like a patsy. 

Campos may or may not have had knowledge of one thing or another, but something spooked him enough to break for the border instead of a hospital and a lawyer.

Paddock knew way too much so he was led to believe something that put him on this one last assignment.

Seriously, it would be better for us all if the Swamp dwellers just wrote million dollar checks to the CIA screwballs and asked them to retire and go away and stay out of circulation or get whacked.

More tangential stories to DISTRACT us from the fact the shooting was FAKE.

Automatic Choke's picture

it may be a false flag.

it may be some horrid CIA job gone awry.

it may be a real world script for an "Ocean's Eleven" sequel.

it may just be an angry guy shooting at the world.

it was not fake, however.   i live in las vegas.   i've talked to neighborhood kids who were there and came home splattered with blood.

Another theory to add to your list is maybe Campos is Paddock's handler, and Campos was ordered by his handlers to silence Paddock. But Campos wasn't as competent as his handlers thought, so during the exchange, Paddock shot Campos in the leg. The bottom line is there is enough evidence, both present and missing, in that hotel to strongly indicate a second individual was involved. And since Campos is the ONLY individual that is placed at the scene at the start of the shooting with Paddock, then he should be a prime person of interest.

Okay, I’ll provide a less dramatic scenario, trying to ignore the fact that Swamp Congress is uniting to pass a tax cut for the rich, balancing it (as usual) with more child-tax-credit welfare for citizens and noncitizens so that companies can hire more legal / illegal immigrants. The Swamp will continue to approve budgets that pay the major household bills of many citizen / noncitizen parents — rent, food —and they will be giving more of them $6,269 checks at tax time to reward sex and reproduction, making it easier for them to accept $9-per-hour security guard jobs and other low-wage fare that will not cover rent for citizens with no unearned income. Wages and hours will continue to tank for citizens with no unearned income from a spouse or welfare, as all of these welfare and tax-welfare, cash-for-womb-productivity rewards require parent workers to stay below an income limit.

Boring Anti-Conspiracy Theory:

The guy’s pro-bono, liberal lawyer loved the idea of casting him as a hero who prevented more shooting victims, especially since he is in a minority group. He thought the PC-hero narrative would help him in court. So, at first, he let him schedule a press conference. Then, after so many conflicting timelines were released to the press, the lawyer decided that a news conference might not be in his client’s best interest, particularly if the press grilled him to nail down a specific time frame.

Not claiming that it is Eric, but someone on 4chan went back and watched a video from the Sandy Hook massacre, and it looks to be Eric Paddock standing in the background at 0:45 seconds.

ok tylers. you are removing or misplacing comments out of order, or on purpose. I have been on here for over 7 years and know the drill. At one time (before "Minders" controlled the boards, either by gov't or narrative driven, (I truly hope this is not the case) it has become evident that something is woefully wrong with the front office here).

Regardless, the Kettling of commentators is becoming more and more obvious, the reasoning? you can arrive at your own conclusions.

36 donuts thinking it was a false flag for inconsequential crap and the main reason staring you in the BLANK FACE.

False flag to promote gun control.  

36 ZH BRAINDEAD ZOMBIES giving you their thumbs approval.  Australia got gun control for a SINGLE mass shooting and of course the Brits for their PC bullshit.

How the hell do you zombies think gun control is going to occur without some mass shootings?  Got to have an occurence before you whip out the legislation.  BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, its got to be drugs, gun running or some other cockamammie idea.  

I can't believe you got 36 thumbs up on your post.  ZH, land of the braindead.

Nothing is more important to the deep state than establishing gun control.  Can't advance to the next level of tyranny until gun control is in place.

Remember those "leaked" pictures from the Paddock shooting? One of them was of the hallway facing from Paddock's room. He supposedly fired 200 rounds down that hallway, through a door, blind... and shot Campos in the leg. The other guy, the "engineer", said he could feel bullets passing by head.

There is not a single bullet hole/richochet anywhere in that hallway.

But did you see the pile of squeezed-out toothpaste tubes lying about? That's how the bullet holes were covered over. Just like fixing "wall injuries" in your dorm room before moving out.

200 rounds and only hit once?  Also that's alot of reloading!

What this security guard does is none of your, Tyler's, or anybody else's fkn business.

He's not your slave, not your property. He is a free human being. If you have issue with that, take it to the court. But you will have to have standing to bring suit, so the judge will say go f yourself.

fleur de lis's picture

Actually he is our business since he is the primary witness to a mass murder scene.

He should have been put into protective custody right away, but he left the country.

This whole thing smells right back to the Swamp.

Cynicles II's picture

protective custody?

but...the shooter is dead (uh huh)

Eyes Opened's picture

One ALLEGED shooter is "dead"  .......

fleur de lis's picture

Campos should have been in  a guarded hospital room, protective custody, or at least house arrest.

He probably didn't even have a routine police tail.

How could the shooter's house get broken into unless some bigshot ordered it?

Every burgler for hundreds of miles around knew to stay away from that house, so it had to be somebody from HQ.

Maybe it wasn't supposed to go this way and somebody got the wrong memo or signal, or was maybe goofing off with chicks or getting drunk, and all the fixers and wet workers are on vacation or on assignment in the middle of some other atrocity, so they let Campos do what ever he wants because they know the MSM does not have the smarts to ask the right questions, or even if they did, they would have the smarts not to annoy the Swamp dwellers and lose their overpaid jobs.

Langley outdid themselves in stupidity this time.

Good thing the MSM is on their side.

Thanks for responding to me fleur de lis. However, please understand that you are advocating for the armed kidnapping of a person. Yes, I actually think he was an accomplice. That's just my opinion.

But it does not affect me in any way. The shooter is dead. He is irrelevant. Dead people don't matter. The only people who have a dog in this fight are people whose property was destroyed (MGM) and the people who suffered damages. If you were not there, you have no standing. You are not under any threat from any theorized accomplice. You are much more under threat from your local and D.C. overlords.

If we differ in our opinions, we have 2 options: we can fight with violence and see who wins. Or, we can agree to common ground. The second option is better. This is a country of laws, not men. So if anyone wishes to bring legal action against this security guard, they must have standing. I'm sure most people will agree to this, instead of the first option.

fleur de lis's picture

Your thoughts are akin to someone still a teen --  well meaning but idealistic, uninformed, and short sighted.

Protective custody is not the armed kidnapping of a person, and it is done for many reasons.

Sometimes it is a child taken out of dangerous circumstances until the facts can be sorted out.

Often a criminal witness has information that could get him/her murdered by the perps thus shutting down any investigation.

Campos may or may not have been an accomplice -- someone does know that, but it can be safely assumed that the posters here do not.

We do know that we are being fed lies about the whole thing

But if he is a witness, and on the chance that he knows too much, our idiots in charge of the whole thing actually put him in grave danger by letting him ramble hither and thither at will.

Outside of protective custody the Langley screwballs could have easily taken him at any time and we would never have known what happened.

Of course they could do the same in a protective environment but it would take more planning.

You say that it does not affect you and therefore does not matter, and that dead people don't matter.

That only means that you see things in a short term way, and that is okay.

But the rest of us understand things in a much more exponential way, and we are acutely aware that this dead man does matter.

Indeed he matters very much.

Because his death brought death and destruction to many others and we don't know what role he played.

And about the hotel -- do you know how this was planned under everyone's noses in a such highly sophisticated and well equipped hotel?

Do tell!

The hotel owes us several explanations before we owe them property repair.

Where are you getting the idea about legal action against the guard?

We are discussing how the stupid authorities allowed an important witness to go wandering in circles where he could be easily injured or killed before answering questions.

"routine police tails", guarded hospital rooms and bigshots.. You conspiracy theorists watch too many movies.

Dangerous_Wallaby's picture

One of the duties of a Federal Marshal is to protect federal witnesses. Probably easier to do if you know where the guy is. Whether he needed protection is a different matter. If not then sure he's free to do whatever. Surprising that he was not too busy with appointments with lawyers, doctors, insurance reps, union reps, etc. to leave the country. He could have made arrangements but then a bunch of folks would have known his whereabouts. Doesn't seem to add up.

Maybe he went home to see his family doctor, not trusting the CIA medic?

If he is a "security guard" please provide the proof. He isn't licensed by the state of NV. Does he work for the casino? I doubt it.


So who the fuck is he?  Probably works for Eric Holder running guns to Mexico drug thugs.

The JFK execution in Dallas was not a good job by CIA/Mossad but the latest Vegas job was really shitty.

No wonder that the Trump dossier came back flying into their faces. America has 17 US intelligence/security agencies and none of them can do anything of any value. The job performance went down a toilet. 

The primary purpose of the JFK execution was to protect Fed and to let Israel have nukes.

The 9/11 was a giant step to transform America into a socialist/totalitarian state and to start wars of aggression.

Apparently, there is no meaningful explanation for the Vegas job except for a mass slaughter of white Americans...
