HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The man who killed himself in the Easter Sunday buffet line at a suburban Las Vegas casino apparently had a lengthy dispute with managers at the resort.

The suicide set off panic at the M Resort Spa and Casino in Henderson as people dined at the Easter buffet.

Police say the man was found dead with an apparent self-inflicted wound around 5 p.m. Sunday. At the same time, a car fire was reported in the parking garage.

The Las Vegas man described his plans for the suicide in a letter to the Las Vegas Review Journal that arrived at the newspaper Monday. He said the casino gave him a free lifetime gift of daily buffet meals but revoked it over alleged harassment of the restaurant employees.
