Las Vegas Security Guard Jesus Campos Fled To Mexico After Massacre

Jesus Campos fled to Mexico after Las Vegas shooting

Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos fled to Mexico shortly after the Las Vegas massacre, according to Customs and Border Patrol officials. 

Following Paddock’s Oct. 1st massacre, Campos, who may or may not have been shot by Paddock, briefly disappeared from public view before suddenly resurfacing on the Ellen show. reports: 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.

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?


  1. It was the closest route to Los Angeles to find a replacement actor? Why does the old Jesus Campos look nothing like the new Jesus Campos? You would think someone would think to draw the moles. Or, did the real Jesus Campos have mole removal procedures and weight gain? Sorry, he looks like a “replacement” for the part. He doesn’t even recall what happened … but, that’s okay Ellen DeGeneres walked him through it every step of the way as a quick reminder. Lucky, Ellen got the scoop about what happened before any news outlets? How did that happen. FAKE news must be finding a new plat form with Celebrities. Oh, goodness … can’t we just have interviews like the olden days … where someone comes out on a show for an hour or two for an interview … and some hosts goes over the most popular questions the audience (nation) is curious about or wants clarified. When this guy surfaced on the Ellen DeGeneres show … I thought … oh right, he probably had surgery on his leg … HIPPA Laws … no one could say where he was at … now he’s out of the hospital. Now, this guy coming from Mexico to the US to California first without any details or explanations as to why or how he allegedly left and drove (like Tucker points out) … makes you wonder if he has a cane and acting to limp? No disrespect … only the two guys (or one) don’t really look all that much alike. And, why wouldn’t there be more hotel pictures of him for better comparison.
