Lakisha Holloway Intentionally Plows Into Crowd On Vegas Strip – Her History Revealed

Last night, a 24 year old woman intentionally drove her car into a crowd of people on the Las Vegas strip, killing at one person and injuring at least 30 others.

Here are some things we now know about her. This has just been revealed. While police refuse to admit the motive behind Lakeisha Holloway’s horendous attack on the Las Vegas strip last night, we at News Foxes have discovered that it very well may have been targeting Miss Universe. Lakeisha Holloway was a want-to-be model in Las Vegas for a gig hoping for her big-break.

According to TMZ,

The woman who plowed into dozens of people on the Vegas strip Sunday night is a model who was in Sin City for a gig.

Lakeisha Holloway is an Oregon resident who just started a clothing line.  It’s unclear if she was in Vegas modeling her clothes, or just picking up modeling work.

Daily Mail reported: At a press conference at 10am PST on Monday, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said initial charges include murder with use of a deadly weapon as well as multiple counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, child abuse or neglect and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

He said: ‘When a person drives a 2,000-pound-plus motor vehicle intentionally onto a sidewalk, killing and injuring scores of people, that’s murder.’ Holloway is being held without bail at Clark County Jail.

While the motive remains unclear, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said he does not believe the incident was a case of terrorism. However, he said he was not able to absolutely rule out terrorism at this stage due to a lack of information about the suspect.

Authorities said people jumped on the car and banged on its windows as it plowed through pedestrians on the sidewalk.

Lombardo told reporters that Holloway was stoic and didn’t appear to be distressed when she was arrested. He said she told a valet at a hotel to call 911 after she mowed down people on Las Vegas Boulevard.

He added Holloway had made statements about her motive at the scene, but was ‘not comfortable’ with divulging those comments. However, he insisted that those statements did not suggest the motive was terrorism.

Authorities said they were struggling to piece together Holloway’s background. She changed her name to Paris Paradise Morton in October, according to Oregon court records.

While there have been reports of a possible terrorism link to the attack, those reports are so far unsubstantiated.
