Mea culpa! Mea maxima culpa!
For readers who were following a breaking story about a security guard at the Mandalay Bay Hotel had been arrested in connection with the Las Vegas massacre, I regret to inform you it was a hoax.
The story, which ran in our Web Crawler section, has been pulled.
According to J.E. Dyer, who made me aware that the item (which is still live here) was a phony, noted that the perpetrators changed the name of the security guard from Jose Campos to Jose Compos. That appropriately is a letter short of compost.
I apologize for the misinformation and promise to try to do better.
