2 men found dead in Las Vegas home were homicide victims

Updated August 5, 2019 - 10:04 am

Las Vegas homicide detectives are investigating the deaths of two men whose bodies were found Friday night in a northwest valley home as a double homicide.

The two have been identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Timothy Allen Bailey and Harlee Andrew Deborski, both 19, of Las Vegas.

Bailey died of a gunshot wound to the back of his head, while Deborski was killed by a gunshot wound to his head, according to the coroner’s office. Both men’s deaths were ruled homicides.

Police have said that their bodies were found about 8:50 p.m. in the entrance of a home on the 7800 block of Airola Peak Street, near West Grand Teton Drive and North Hualapai Way, after at least one 911 call reporting gunshots. Investigators believe the shooting happened sometime after 8 p.m. inside the home.

As of Monday morning, police had not determined a motive in the shooting or identified a suspect or suspects, although detectives are seeking a man in a gray hooded sweatshirt seen in the area just prior to the shooting.

“We know someone walked past the suspect on Airola Peak Street at 8:42 p.m.,” Metro stated Saturday in a Facebook post.

Anyone with information can call Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
