Las Vegas police are investigating the stabbing deaths of a couple found Friday afternoon inside their Strip hotel room as a double homicide.
A man and woman were Vietnamese tourists traveling with a tour group that arrived in Las Vegas on Thursday night. The couple had been expected to participate in a group trip to the Grand Canyon on Friday, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said. They never showed.
Police were called about 4 p.m. as part of a welfare check at their hotel room inside of Circus Circus, 2880 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Security used keys to enter the room, where they discovered the man and woman’s bodies had each been stabbed multiple times.
“As a result of our initial processing of the room, we are able to confirm that it is definitely a double homicide,” said Spencer, adding police would provide clarification as time passed.
A person reported hearing an argument coming from their hotel room about 2 a.m., but it wasn’t initially clear who was involved, he said. Neither police nor security was called about the disturbance.
Detectives now think that disturbance likely was when the attack occurred, Spencer said at an 11 p.m. briefing.
Metro had no information on their assailant or assailants.
