Don't worry.  We won't give anything away.  Scroll down.

Car Bomb at the Luxor

In 2007, a hot dog vendor, Dorantes Antonio, 24, was killed when a pipe bomb went off near the Luxor Casino garage.  It was quickly determined that this was not terrorism but instead something personal.  

Deadly Beating at the Imperial Palace

On the night of December 8, 1997, Donald Idiens, a land developer and avid card player from Canada, was playing poker at the Mirage hotel and casino.  He got up and left the table - and his money - never to return.

His badly beaten body would later be found in a fire escape landing on the 17th floor.  What happened?

Body Dismembered in the Tuscany Suites

When Everilda “Evie” Watson traveled from Ontario, California to Las Vegas on July 11, 2006, she believed her husband had made arrangements to celebrate her recent 50th birthday in Sin City. She was dead wrong — and never seen alive again.

Well, she's be seen again....just not alive....and definitely not intact.

Double Homicide After Planet Hollywood Dispute

Melissa Mendoza and Jennifer Chicas, 27-year-old best friends in Northern California, did everything together. Tragically, on February 19, 2016, they were murdered together.

Mandalay Bay Massacre

“It was all about doing the maximum amount of damage and him obtaining some form of infamy,” Aaron Rouse, the agent in charge of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, told the AP in regard to high stakes gambler Stephen Paddock.

He would kill himself after gunning down 58 people and hundreds others at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Paddock did the shooting from his Mandalay Bay hotel room window.
