Murder Mystery Unfolds at Palms Casino Resort; Suspect in Custody


A horrifying tragedy unfolded within the gilded walls of the Palms Casino resort in Las Vegas when a 30-year old female escort was found strangled to death. Succumbing to her injuries on June 21 at Spring Valley Hospital, she was brutally assaulted more than a week prior on June 12, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police revealed. The luxurious Palms Casino Resort, adorned with the sheen of glitz and gambling, is now the cold backdrop of a murder investigation.

The solemnity that now shrouds the resort is a grim contrast to its vibrant history. Owned by the Manuel Band of Mission Indians since 2021, who had acquired it from Red Rock Resorts, the parent entity of Station Casinos, the glitzy casino-resort had originally been the brainchild of the Maloof family, brought to life in all its glamour back in 2001.

However, the lavish walls that had invited countless patrons to revel in luxury now conceal a horrifying crime, prompting the authorities to delve into the otherwise clandestine world of escort services in Vegas, as they believe that the unnamed, unfortunate woman was part of a Vegas-based escort company and her details were enlisted on several escort websites.

In a surprising turn of events, the suspected perpetrator, identified as Jason Kendall, 35, willingly presented himself at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Headquarters last Friday. Kendall stands accused of a disquieting triad of severe criminal offenses – open murder, sexual assault, and battery via strangulation with an intent to commit sexual assault.

His initial appearance in court over the weekend bore a grim forecast for Kendall–the judge ordered him to remain behind bars with no option for bail. As the investigation continues to unfold, Kendall is slated for another court date this coming Tuesday.

As the story continues to ripple through Las Vegas, every new fold threatens to reveal darker facets of this brutal crime. The pursuit of justice, however, remains steadfast, with the tragic circumstances constantly under examination by the tireless authorities in this grave search for truth.
