EXCLUSIVE: Did the $10,000 Mandalay Bay Security Officer Jesus Campos gave his brother come from GoFundMe accounts related to October 1 shooting?

LAS VEGAS — The Baltimore Post-Examiner has obtained a letter written by Mandalay Bay Hotel Security Officer Jesus Campos stating that he gave his brother, Jorge Quintero, $10,000 in December of 2017.

On October 3, 2017 a GoFundMe account was created on behalf of an attorney for Mandalay Bay Security Officer Jesus Campos, by his co-worker Mandalay Bay Security Officer Liliana Rodriquez. The GoFundMe page displayed a depiction of the Mandalay Bay Hotel with the caption, “Pray For Las Vegas.”

That GoFundMe account indicated that the donations were for “medical.”

The account which is now closed netted a total of $35, 435 of a $40,000 goal.

Mandalay Bay Hotel Security Officer Liliana Rodriquez wrote on that GoFundMe page:

“My name is Lilly. I am raising funds to assist Jesus Campos, a co-worker, that was injured during the tragic Las Vegas shooting. Unfortunately, he was shot while on random patrol. Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support for him while he gets back on his feet. This is a young man that I work with day in and day out. Any financial support would be appreciated for the time he would need to recover. Anyone of us could have been in the position he was in. Most importantly we are a home away from home and at the end of the day we are a team and we should all go home together.”

Another GoFundMe account was created on behalf of an attorney for Jesus Campos, by Encore Event Technologies, the Audio Visual partner to the Mandalay Bay Hotel. They indicated on the GoFundMe page that “Mandalay Bay Security Guard Jesus Campos, our fellow employee was shot and injured during October 1.”

That account indicated that the donations were for “Emergencies.”

The account which is now closed netted $11, 285 of a $10, 000 goal.

Campos’ former brother-in-law, Luis Castro, told the Baltimore Post-Examiner that Campos had no money prior to October 1, 2017 and that he was living with Castro and at times with friends and or his girlfriend.

According to Castro in December of 2017 Campos wrote a letter that was later submitted to the Court during the custody hearing between Castro’s sister and Quintero, her former husband.

Castro stated the letter from Campos was used to show that Quintero had some financial income.

The letter which was obtained by the Baltimore Post-Examiner and according to Castro is signed by Jesus Campos reads as follows:

“To whom this may concern: I am writing a promissory note for the money I have loaned my brother for him to survive and pay his attorney which I am helping him with the amount of $10,000. I loaned it to him in early December [2017] due to his business shutting down from his ex-wife ruining his reputation.

I Jesus Campos verify this loan to my brother Jorge Quintero. He has agreed to pay me in small payments as he can while starting over. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at any time. Signed Jesus Campos.”

Castro told the Baltimore Post-Examiner that if the $10,000 Campos gave to his brother is linked to GoFundMe, then that money was used for other than the purpose stated on the GoFundMe account. Castro said he spoke to the police about his concern.

For additional information on what Castro told the Baltimore Post-Examiner read our December 9, 2018 article, “EXCLUSIVE: MGM Resorts International buys Mandalay Bay Security Officer Jesus Campos’ silence with all expenses paid trips, condos in exchange for NDA.”

After the Las Vegas massacre, many people expressed their generosity and charitable spirit by donating money to the hundreds of victims that sustained injuries.

The Baltimore Post-Examiner requested comment from Jesus Campos and Jorge Quintero. They did not return calls.

On a separate note, S/O Liliana Rodriguez was working in the Mandalay Bay Hotel security surveillance/dispatch room on the night of the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas Massacre.

The Baltimore Post-Examiner reported in our December 14, 2018 story, “What entry was logged at 9:59 p.m. by Mandalay Bay security night of Las Vegas massacre?,” that Rodriquez at 11:52:51 p.m., was on the telephone with Campos as follows:

“Campos, you got hit right; was this related to what’s going on? OK did you get a description…and you got hit…and you didn’t see anybody?”

One hour and thirty-six minutes after the last shots were fired Rodriquez was asking Campos if him getting shot was related to what’s going on.

    @Roger Allen Kenis- An apology from who… the agents that pulled this false flag attack? That’s not going to happen. They didn’t apologize for shooting up a closed down elementary school, a high school, movie theater, concert and a church. All done for gun control. And we still have our guns. They’re way overdue for another one too. What’s next a theme park. I wouldn’t be surprised. That has all ages, colors and religions. The park owners are going to be mad because they know the truth. The filthy rich are all in on it. I guess they’ll give them billions from all the missing trillions to make up for shooting up their park. Money is their God.

    Personally, I dont care what he did with the money but where’s the help for those of us with real medical issues and financial support during all of this? Never even got an email or letter from anyone with an apology for what happened. Settled up with him while leaving us high and dry, and looking to settle for a fraction of what they should have too.
