A slain man was found Friday night in a bedroom of a Panorama Towers condo, only a few months after residents began moving into the glitzy $400 million high-rise.
After an anonymous phone call to Las Vegas police, the victim was found with multiple stab wounds in unit 2300 of the tower at 4525 Dean Martin Drive, near Harmon Avenue and Interstate 15. He was dead at the scene.
“We received an anonymous call that there was somebody going to be dead at that location,” said Lt. Lew Roberts of the homicide unit.
Police arrived at the condominium about 7:30 p.m. after receiving the call from an unknown man alerting them to the victim, who was found in the master bedroom.
Roberts said investigators were looking for a person of interest but did not release more information. It was unknown what the motive for the stabbing was.
“Detectives are continuing to process the scene and canvass the building for anyone who may have seen or heard anything,” Roberts said.
The victim’s identity was withheld by police. The name is to be released by the Clark County coroner’s office.
The 2,400-square-foot condominium, assessed at $400,000 by Clark County, is owned by William Fry, according to county records. Fry owns seven condos at Panorama Towers.
Fry, 70, was in the news a year ago after turning over a $1 million luxury condo at Turnberry Place to a teenage singer who had been displaced from hurricane-ravaged Louisiana.
Fry couldn’t be reached for comment Saturday.
The first of Panorama’s four 30-story luxury condo towers opened in December. A real estate Web site listed a 2,200-square-foot Panorama unit as renting for $4,500 a month.
Celebrities Pamela Anderson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey McGuire own Panorama units.
