Mandalay Bay Valet Goes Missing After Claiming Shooter ‘Had No Bags’

A Mandalay Bay valet has disappeared after giving an interview in which he insisted the suspected shooter "didn't have many bags."

A Mandalay Bay valet, who parked Stephen Paddock’s car when he checked in, has mysteriously disappeared after giving an interview to mainstream media in which he insisted the suspected shooter was “a normal guy” and “didn’t have many bags.

Chad Nishimura, a long term employee of Mandalay Bay, gave the interview to Moanike’ala Nabarro, a reporter for Hawaiian ABC affiliate, KITV4 News.

The article has now been deleted from the KITV4 News website after it appeared to go against the “official narrative” that “lone wolf” gunman Paddock managed to smuggle enough guns for a small army into his hotel suite completely unnoticed by staff or security personnel monitoring the hotel’s CCTV.

KITV4 have so far refused to explain why their article was suddenly scrubbed from their website, or if they were acting under outside orders.

Nishimura, a Hawaii native, has also completely vanished since the report was published, and all of his social media accounts have been deleted from the internet.

If it wasn’t for the archived interview with KITV4 News Hawaii, accessible after a little digging on, it would be as if Nishimura never existed.

Friends and colleagues say the valet has been “totally unreachable for days” since shortly after the 1 October attack that left 59 dead and hundreds more injured.

The KITV4 interview offered a very different perspective on the shooting compared to the content being produced by most mainstream media outlets. By interviewing somebody who actually met Stephen Paddock, the interview provided real insight into the event.

Nishimura told the ABC affiliate that Paddock “seemed normal” and, most tellingly, that he “didn’t have any bags with him upon arrival.

While the removal of the article from the KITV4 website could be explained by ABC higher-ups taking issue with an article that contradicts the “lone wolf” narrative they are pushing, the disappearance of Nishimura and the scrubbing of his social media accounts makes the whole episode particularly disturbing.

Did Nishimura’s account put the whole “official narrative” in jeopardy, or did he know something else that they were concerned he would go public with?

Searching for Chad Nishimura’s social media accounts also leads to multiple dead ends. His Facebook page now returns an error saying the page has been removed, and his LinkedIn page has also been taken down.

Even his LinkedIn profile has been removed.

Chad Nishimura’s account goes a long way to proving the “lone wolf” narrative about Stephen Paddock is not true. He did not arrive with enough bags to cart enough weapons to arm a small nation into his room at the Mandalay Bay.

The question of how Paddock is supposed to have transported those weapons to his room remains one of the biggest gaps in the story, unexplained by authorities or Mandalay Bay CCTV footage, which many believe will never be released to the public.

Nishimura’s account of “normal guy” Stephen Paddock arriving at the hotel without many bags runs counter to the increasingly shambolic official narrative being pushed by authorities and mainstream media.

The official narrative is falling apart at the seams. Authorities are changing the official timeline of events almost daily, covering up the facts, and the Mandalay Bay is desperately trying to avoid releasing information that may lead to massive lawsuits against their company.

The stakes in this case are incredibly high.

Is this why the Mandalay Bay valet has now disappeared, with his social media presence scrubbed from existence?

    Maybe because he didnt bring the bags in. They were brought in by others. The videos will show that but not surprisingly they dont want to show them

      There are just too many red flags to make sense out of this that one person, like in J.F. Kennedy assassination, there was the lone wolf. You can see the body cam of a female officer that gun fire was recorded coming out of the 4th floor.

    The valet just wasn’t in the Mr. Murren plans :))))

    Out filthy government did this to strip you of the right to defend yourself. I’m ashamed of the morons that believe anything these communist leaders have to say about anything anymore. I’m also embarrassed for you that you can be so easily misled. Praying for you all daily.

    According to Neon Nettle, Nishimura “has completely vanished since
    the report was published, with all of his social media accounts being
    scrubbed from the internet.”

    This is completely and provably false. Nishimura has been active on
    Facebook after 3 October, the publication date of the KITV 4 article
    which — at least according to the conspiracy theory being pushed here —
    prompted his “disappearance”. (His Facebook account remains active, but
    we are not linking to it in the interest of protecting Nishimura’s
    privacy from readers provoked by the groundless conspiracy theory
    peddled and promulgated by Neon Nettle and others.)

    On 5 October 2017, Nishimura wrote:

    thankfully cut my wristband off and didnt [sic] go on Sunday. However I
    did park the shooters [sic] car…Thats been the rough part for me.

      He was murdered outside of church:
      A witness in the Las Vegas Shooting massacre has been shot dead outside a central Las Vegas Valley church.
      Chad Nishimura was a valet worker from the Mandalay Bay hotel, who parked the suspected Las Vegas shooting gunman’s car, and gave an interview saying Stephen Paddock was a “normal guy” who “didn’t have many bags”.

        A man killed as he was arriving to his church Monday in the central valley has been identified.

        He was Hector Antonio Lemus-Flores, 45, of North Las Vegas, Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said. His death was ruled a homicide.

        Totally different person who also was not what I would call “young.”
