Additional attractions will include a performance by MGM Grand dance artists, Jabbawockeez, displays with LVMPD patrol cars for up-close-and-personal experiences.

Metro’s Decoy Dummy, Used in DTLV Murder Investigation, at The Mob Museum Sept. 19

 

THE MOB MUSEUM TO HOST ANATOMY OF A POLICE STING: PANEL
DISCUSSION ON DECOY DUMMY USED TO CAPTURE ALLEGED PERPETRATOR
OF TWO DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS MURDERS

– One-time-only event to take place Tuesday, Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
– CPR dummy used in sting to be on display during discussion.
– Event preceded by “Photo Op with a Cop” from 4 – 6 p.m., allowing families to meet police officers who patrol downtown neighborhoods.

The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, invites the public to learn the gripping and groundbreaking story of how Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) used innovative policing and high-tech surveillance to catch a murder suspect in Downtown Las Vegas. On Tuesday, September 19, at 7 p.m., the Museum will host a panel discussion, moderated by the Museum’s Senior Director of Content Geoff Schumacher, about the decoy sting. For this event only, the actual CPR dummy used to capture the alleged perpetrator will be on display.

Panelists will include LVMPD police captain Andrew Walsh, supervisor of the Downtown Area Command; Marc DiGiacomo, chief district attorney, Clark County; and Homicide Detective Ryan Jaeger.

“We enjoy an ongoing, collaborative relationship with our largest local law enforcement agency and this successful sting represents an interesting example of their recent crime-stopping initiatives,” says Schumacher. “The Museum looks forward to providing a forum where the public can hear directly from those involved about this unique case.”

About the Incident
After two homeless men were murdered in Downtown Las Vegas earlier this year, the LVMPD had no leads or suspects. Motivated to solve the case, Walsh and his squad dressed up a CPR dummy, wrapped it in blankets and placed it in a sleeping position in the same area where the murders occurred. They watched the dummy for three weeks and nothing happened.

Eventually, however, surveillance cameras captured a man approaching the dummy and attacking it with a hammer. Shane Schindler, 30, later pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was sentenced to 8 to 20 years in prison.

The event will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

Photo Op with a Cop, 4 – 6 p.m.
Preceding the panel discussion, the Museum will host a new event, “Photo Op with a Cop,” to promote stronger bonds, develop deeper relationships and build trust between the LVMPD officers and the neighborhoods they serve and protect. Held behind the Museum and presented in partnership with LVMPD’s Downtown Area Council, the event will allow families the chance to take photographs with patrol vehicles and officers. In addition, Pinups for Patriots will also be on hand for photos with a vintage police car. The first 10 people who attend Photo Op with a Cop on September 19 will receive free admission; all guests after the first 10 will receive $5 off admission.
