I don’t know what to make of this.
I got an Email blast from a site I follow that had this article as a headline.
I clicked on the title to go to their page and it says Not Found but the link worked to this CNN page.
I looked all over for the link to see if it was legit and finally had to use the authors name to find it on CNN’s International page.
The real funny thing is that I can’t find this being reported ANYWHERE else.
Not Reuters, not The Associated Press, Fox, Google News, not searching Google with the exact title, nothing, no where.
Something really funky is going on here.
Breaking News – Police Arrest Mandalay Security Guard Jesus Compos As Second Shooter In Las Vegas Massacre
(CNN) Breaking News – Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Compos has been arrested accused of being an accomplice and second shooter in the Las Vegas massacre that claimed the lives of 59 people and injured more than 500.
Jesus Campos had originally been praised for his apparent heroics on October 1st, as he supposedly rushed to Paddock’s suite, was shot in the upper thigh through the door, and continued to help get people to safety despite his wounds. However, FBI officials involved in the investigation now believe he was an accomplice of Paddock’s, and was involved in the initial shooting as a second gunman from the other broken window in Paddock’s 32nd-floor room.
According to a senior FBI official, authorities became suspicions by the extreme amount of gunpowder residue found on Campos’ hands and inconsistencies in his timeline of events. “We believe he killed Paddock, shot holes through the door and his own arm to produce physical evidence for his cover story, then went and lay next to the elevator,” the FBI official told CNN.
An anonymous source working on the investigation told CNN that authorities are now in possession of security footage showing Campos smuggling the firearms used in the massacre in through a Mandalay Bay loading dock in the days leading up to the event.
With the arrest of Compos Police now hope to get a greater understanding of the motivations behind the attack.
Now one would think that if this story was true then it would be the lead on every single news site out there but I haven’t found one other story that matches what is being claimed here.
I do believe that this is one of those things that make you go HMMMM.
Aesop over at The Raconteur Report did some digging after I fell asleep and discovered that this is from a fake CNN site which explains why I couldn’t find anything to back this up.
