Murder in vegas hotel rooms. Lots of cash and drugs flowing

I was at ceasars. Overheard a customer try to pick up a friend's 30k of forgotten cash in a hotel room safe. The cage told him that only the owner of the cash can take it. He said that the owner already left vegas.

In the past, the risk of robbery drastically increases if people know you are carrying 500. Today, it might be 1000.

Like most homicides (like 90+%??) , the Vegas ones are probably people who know each other, e.g., a spouse who got mad at another one for blowing all their money. Also, I bet more than a few are drug deals gone bad or something. Being murdered is not something I worry about when I go to Vegas. Keep your wits about you and you probably don't have to worry about being robbed, either.

I find it very hard to believe there are anywhere near that number of homicides in casino hotel rooms. In three years of living there, I remember two cases that made the news.

As far as death goes, as in life, you will never walk alone.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Not all "hotel" rooms in Vegas are in the Strip resorts. There are plenty of rooms in the sketchier parts of town where the Coroner's wagon may have it's own reserved parking space.

According to this interesting but macabre article at Vital Vegas, around 1,100 people die in Vegas hotel rooms every year. "The coronerís office says 67 percent of those deaths are the result of accidents, 15 percent committed suicide and 11 percent were the victims of homicide. No cause of death could be determined in six percent of the deaths." The interesting part is what the hotels do with the bodies when they find them.

The article also addresses the legendary balcony dives at the Luxor, major room thefts, and the fact that, evidently, every surface in your Vegas room has probably had people having coitus on it. Good times.



I just noticed you completely misread that article. It says 1,100 VISITORS die in Vegas every year, only SOME of which are in hotel rooms.

I bet the majority die in traffic accidents.

Even the LVPD claims a total of 121 murders in the ENTIRE CITY in 2018, and only a fraction of those would be in hotels.
