Jesus Campos Returns: Mandalay Bay Security Guard Emerges on ‘Ellen’ – Newswars.com

(Newswars.com) Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos reappeared days after going missing, surfacing Wednesday for an interview on, of all places, the daytime show ‘Ellen.’

Campos appeared alongside Mandalay Bay building engineer Stephen Schuck in a pre-taped interview answering questions about the events he witnessed as he approached the hotel room of alleged shooter Stephen Paddock – who was either preparing to, was in the middle of, or had just finished shooting at Las Vegas country music festival concertgoers depending on which narrative you choose.

“I’m doing better each day, slowly but surely. Just healing mentally and physically,” Campos told DeGeneres, 17 days after the massacre.

Campos described going to the hotel’s 32nd story to investigate a door alarm, but says he was unable to access the floor due to a “metal bracket holding the door in place.”

Campos said he instead used an elevator to access the floor and described distinctly hearing “drilling sounds” as he neared the shooter’s room via a hallway, which is how he believes Paddock may have observed him. Police have claimed the shooter set up surveillance devices outside of his hotel room.
