The top executive of the Hard Rock Hotel was found dead in his Summerlin home Tuesday morning, the hotel and the state’s top gaming regulator confirmed.
Las Vegas police Lt. George Castro told The Associated Press on Tuesday a person was found dead of a gunshot wound inside the home of Hard Rock Hotel President and Chief Operating Officer Randy Kwasniewski. He did not confirm whether the person was Kwasniewski.
Gaming Control Board Chairman Dennis Neilander, however, said Tuesday afternoon that he was notified by attorneys for Hard Rock’s owners, Morgans Hotel Group, that Kwasniewski had died.
The Hard Rock Hotel also issued a statement saying, “We are extremely saddened by the loss of Randy, and our hearts and prayers go out to the family. We do not know any further details at this time.”
