Filipina housekeeper found dead in Las Vegas hotel room
A Filipina hotel housekeeper was found dead in a room at Bally’s Hotel in Las Vegas on Sunday, Nov. 28.
Basilisa Tagget-Smith, 61, was found unresponsive and was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Tagget-Smith, immigrated from Bohol to the US in 1987 and had worked at Bally’s for over 30 years. Her death is the second to be experienced by her family within a few months.
In March, her other son Reggie, 42, shot and killed security guard at the Wynn Resort parking lot before turning the gun on himself.
At first police considered her death suspicious, possibly a homicide, and even released a video of a person of interest.
However, her son Lemuel Tagget, who later spoke with the police said his mother died of natural causes. She apparently had a stroke.
