A 53-year-old Las Vegas man shot and killed himself on Sunday near a hotel buffet, in an apparent act of retalliation after the hotel revoked his free lifetime buffet privileges, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
John Noble explained his actions in two suicide notes delivered to the newspaper on Monday, saying, “I end my life due to the M Resort Spa Casino and its employees.” The notes were accompanied by more than 270 pages of documents he compiled detailing his grudge against members of the staff, along with a DVD.
Noble had won free lifetime meals at the Henderson hotel’s Studio B Buffet in September 2010. But according to his documents, the hotel banned him on Easter Sunday 2013 from the premises after he began harassing female employees with “unwanted gifts and attention.” Noble was placed in protective custody at the time and spent three days in a state psychiatric hospital.
According to the Inquisitr, Noble continued harassing employees online after his release, posting staff members’ names, pictures and addresses without their consent. His final Facebook post named several staff members.
“All of the hateful people at the M Resort are pathetic, It is sad that this is what our society has become,” he wrote. “I’ve been destroyed because I told the truth, I never thought any type of backlash would be so brutal to destroy me in this way. I’m a genuine person proved by my inability to properly deal with everything that happened.”
KLAS-TV reported that investigators also linked Noble to a car fire inside the hotel’s parking garage that caused it to be evacuated.
