LAS VEGAS — A man who survived the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 concert-goers and injured hundreds in Las Vegas has been killed in a hit-and-run in southern Nevada.
Roy McClellan of Las Vegas was killed Nov. 17 while hitchhiking on State Route 160 in Pahrump, about 50 miles west of Las Vegas.
His widow, Denise McClellan, told KSNV-TV she can’t understand why her 52-year-old husband survived the shooting, only to die in a hit-and-run. She says the mass shooting “was messing with his head” and that he was undergoing therapy.
“I’m angry. I feel that he was under the influence of something or drunk and didn’t want to get caught, so he bailed and left my husband laying there in the street. He doesn’t deserve that,” McClellan told the station. The Nevada Highway Patrol says it is seeking the driver of a Chevrolet Camaro with front-end damage.
Roy McClellan joins several other survivors of the massacre who have died under suspicious circumstances since the attack.
Dennis and Lorraine Carver died in a fatal fiery car crash when their car exploded on October 16th in Riverside, California. The couple’s 16-year-old daughter, Madison, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that she heard a loud bang outside of her window and “when she ran down the street and rounded the corner, a familiar vehicle engulfed in flames came into view”. The Riverside County Fire Department claimed that their vehicle “crashed into a metal gate” and it took firefighters “nearly an hour to completely put out the fire,” according to the report.
Danny Contreras – who described multiple shooters as well. The 35 year old reported his account all over – with one of his tweets shared hundreds of times which stated “can’t believe i got out of concert alive! 2 men chasing me with guns.”
Contreras was found dead in a vacant Las Vegas home with multiple gunshot wounds. Police said 35-year-old Danny Contreras was found dead at 7:05 a.m. Monday. A woman who thought she heard a man groaning had called 911 requesting a welfare check on the 5800 block of East Carey Avenue, near North Nellis Boulevard. Contreras died of multiple gunshot wounds, and the coroner ruled his death a homicide. –Las Vegas Review Journal Las Vegas Police homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said it’s possible Contreras had gang ties based on the fact that he had tattoos, though the killing was likely related to narcotics rather than gang activity. Neighbors said they did not hear any gunshots, however they heard arguing and a dog barking.
Kymberley Suchomel, 28, died in her sleep of “natural causes” in Apple Valley. She was a direct witness to the concert attack, describing to the Victorville Daily Press how bullets descended upon people “from all angles” as she fled for her life—and despite surviving the worst mass shooting in American history, she was found dead about 1 week later in her home—the exact cause of death still unknown. Kymberley’s said on Facebook that “every single survivor I have talked to also remembers multiple shooters, and at least one from the ground.”
Chad Nishimura, a Mandalay Bay valet, parked the suspected Las Vegas gunman’s car, and gave an interview saying Stephen Paddock was a “normal guy” who “didn’t have many bags”.
Nishimura gave a statement to ABC affiliate, KITV4 News, but the article was quietly pulled from the network’s website after it began attracting attention.
After his account was published, Nishimura disappeared and all of his social media accounts were deleted. His friends and coworkers saying he is “totally unreachable”.
Chad Nishimura’s account seems to prove that Paddock didn’t carry bags of heavy machine guns and other deadly weapons up to his room. One of the biggest holes in the official story is how Paddock could have smuggled all those weapons up to his room, avoiding detection.
Nishimura’s report of “normal guy” Paddock arriving at the hotel without much luggage totally debunks that theory. As unverified rumors circulate about his death, did Chad Nishimura’s honesty cost him his life?
Orville Almon, the lawyer representing the Route 91 music festival and Jason Aldean, the singer onstage when the Las Vegas shooting began, was found dead at home after suffering a “seizure during sleep” – the same cause of death as Kymberley Suchomel.
Almon, a prominent Nashville attorney, his practice included re-negotiating existing agreements and new technology issues, and was renowned for negotiating with law enforcement. However his recent social media posts suggested the experienced attorney was feeling the strain of his latest high-profile case.
Describing meetings with MGM, Las Vegas police, and the FBI as “incredibly strange and complex” to one of his friends on recently made private Facebook threads, the attorney was privy to inside information that the FBI, by announcing they are no longer holding press conferences and the investigation is closed, have chosen to withhold from the public.
John Beilman, who was wanted by federal agents following the discovery of a communications device in the hotel room of the officially identified shooter Stephen Paddock, killed both himself and his disabled daughter in an apparent murder-suicide.
Investigators searched Beilman’s Fairport home the day before he shot his severely disabled daughter and himself, according to sources close to the investigation.
Agents executed a search warrant and raided Beilman’s Williamsburg Drive home the day before he took his daughter, Nicole, into the backyard and shot her and then himself in the head with a 12-gauge shotgun.
