Family, friends remember Dotty's manager killed during robbery

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A candlelight vigil was held on Sunday night for Alicia Gibellina. She was the Dotty’s manager who was killed during a robbery on May 11 after 28-year-old Samuel Schmid, went inside a Dotty’s on Flamingo Road and Jones Boulevard and allegedly stole a woman’s purse.

Alicia's husband Miguel along with all of her friends from years of working in casinos and gaming parlors in Vegas came out to show their support.

Patricia Hicks had known Gibellina for 30 years and said she would never forget her kindness. 

"I cry a lot of nights because I know that she won’t be back to see us again, but I still have her right here in my heart and she will always be my friend," Hicks said.

Many describe this as a senseless and disturbing act with the hope that Dotty’s Gaming will change the way it handles operations within its parlor. ... Read More

*Whew!*

When 8NewsNow viewer Kurt asked about the poles that have popped up on the median on Las Vegas Blvd we learned from Clark County that those are simply called “smart poles” - combination light poles with space to install cell phone sites... Read More
