There may be video evidence of Omar Mateen’s alleged gay hookup. After a man came forward claiming to be Omar’s lover, an Orlando hotel claims to have seen Omar on camera footage from late last year. Get all of the details right here.
Proof of Omar Mateen‘s supposed gay hookups just continues to surface. As if it isn’t shocking enough that a man named Miguel claimed to have had sexual relations with the Orlando nightclub shooter, Omar’s gay rendezvouses may have been caught on video.
Omar was seen on footage from surveillance cameras at the Ambassador Hotel in Orlando, hotel sources told TMZ, recorded December 14, 2015, around 11 p.m. The insiders said that the video shows Omar walking up to the front desk to speak with the hotel clerk, proceeding to walk around a corner in the direction of the room where his alleged lover was supposedly staying during their hookups.
The Ambassador’s management showed the video to its staff members, asking if anyone remembered seeing Omar at the hotel when the video footage was captured. Only one staffer, who works the night shift, recognized Omar. Even so, the hotel informed authorities of the video, and the FBI reportedly went to the hotel on June 21 to take a copy of the surveillance footage.
The footage apparently matches the claims that Miguel made to Univision, as he claimed to have met up with Omar 15-20 times at the hotel between November and December. In his interview with Univision, Miguel claimed that Omar’s attack on Pulse nightclub — which left 49 dead and 53 others injured — wasn’t a terrorist attack, it was an act of revenge. Miguel said that Omar was angry after allegedly sleeping with another man who was apparently HIV positive, which is what led him to committing the horrible crime.
The hotel video has yet to be released, and it’s unclear if it ever will be. But if the footage really does have Omar in it, the video could be a key part of proving that Miguel’s claims are true.
