A disturbed man took his own life on Sunday at a Las Vegas casino after sending a 270-page letter to a local Las Vegas newspaper laying the blame for his death at the feet of employees at the city’s M Resort Spa Casino.
John Noble, 53, sent the voluminous and emotion-filled tome, which contained details of his eventual Easter Sunday suicide, to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“Today, I end my life due to the M Resort Spa Casino and its employees,” read a portion of the letter, according to the paper, Nevada’s largest.
In addition to the hefty letter, Noble reportedly sent over a two hour-long DVD as well as a letter entitled ‘The Curse’ in which, as the name suggested, cursed the female staff members whom he blamed for having him banned from the casino.
At around 4:50 p.m. on Sunday, Noble shot himself in the head in front of stunned hotel guests at the resort’s Studio B Buffet after having set his car on fire in the parking lot minutes before.
Two people suffered minor injuries as a scared crowd fled the casino. A representative for the M Resort said they are providing grief counseling for employees who caught sight of the shocking suicide.
