Another Bad Headline For Revel: Two People Found Dead In Hotel Room

Company Filed For Bankruptcy This Spring


Atlantic City’s most expensive casino ever, and the one that just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, was just recently home to two dead bodies.

According to a local ABC affiliate, the corpses of a 56-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, both from New Jersey, were discovered Sunday on the seventh floor of the hotel. A housekeeper reportedly stumbled upon the bodies. Other details have not yet been released.

Revel casino opened in 2012, but its finances have failed horribly since first starting to take action. In an effort to turn things around the casino will remove its smoking ban.

The property ran into financial issues before even getting built. It took six years to complete and required an additional $1.1 billion investment in 2011, along with state help.

The restructuring of its roughly $1.2 billion worth of debt will not interrupt its day-to-day operations or affect employees, the company has said.
