Usually a time for celebration and spending time with loved ones, Easter Sunday 2015 was shrouded in tragedy for patrons and staff alike at the prestigious M Casino Resort in Las Vegas after a man committed suicide after being issued with a ban.
The man, John Noble, was found unresponsive and showing signs of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound mid-afternoon on Sunday April 5th.
The Vegas based publication The Las Vegas Review-Journal stated Monday past that it was in receipt of a range of documents, including a DVD, photos and some 300+ pages of notes, which offered an explanation as to why Mr Noble had decided to, end his life.
Apparently the deceased had been awarded free meals for life by the resort, though was later banned as a result of his, alleged, continued harassment of several of the complexes employees.
The 53-year-old was found dead near the M Resort Spa Casino buffet at around 5pm on Easter Sunday. In his notes he claimed that his suicide would be a result of a depression brought about by the resorts decision to ban him in spite of his previous award, stating ‘Today, I end my life due to the M Resort Spa Casino and its employees.’
Details of a police report sourced by the Las Vegas Review-Journal during the time since Mr Noble’s death indicate that he had a turbulent history at the resort. On March 31, 2013, police were called out to investigate claims that he was stalking and had made death threats to a woman on the premises – leading to his eventual ban from the complex. Following the incident he was placed in protective custody and spent a total of three days at a nearby psychiatric hospital before being released and continuing to harass staff members at the casino via social media.
