The guy is seen in the video footage getting in an elevator about 4 a.m., going to the leading floor, then later on going into the elevator on the 21st floor with exactly what seemed the male victim’s knapsack.
Officers responded Friday afternoon after another visitor called for a welfare check on the 2 victims. The victims were discovered in their space dead, having been stabbed multiple times. The 2 were going to Las Vegas from beyond the nation with a trip group and missed out on an early scheduled trip. Cops think they were killed in the early hours of the morning.

The murders may have been the result of a suspect entering the space to take home, Metro homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said. Spencer advised tourists and hotel guests to make sure their doors locks are protected each time they enter or exit the space.
It is thought the suspect might have “simply opened the door,” he said.
“That is precisely why we have to catch this individual and why we require the public’s help. Anyone who might be responsible for a criminal activity like that is a risk to this neighborhood, and we are going to pour every resource that we have into making sure that he is caught,” Spencer stated in an interview Wednesday.
Circus Circus is using a $10,000 reward for any details causing the recognition and arrest of the suspect.
