Miami Beach police says hotel tycoon Barron Hilton check out on their probe into who attacked him, making their probe in standby mode. Paris Hilton's 24-year-old brother issued a statement to police after the strange incident but refused to wait for the crime scene investigators to snap photos of his injuries.
Barron Hilton reportedly didn't want to do anything with the investigation. The cops haven't been able to communicate with him who hasn't called back to respond to several inquiries. The investigation won't push through until the authorities get more information and talk to the victim himself. The investigation will end if the victim doesn't want to cooperate.
Authorities deny reports saying detectives are close to arresting Ray LeMoine of New York based on the suspicion of attacking Barron during a mansion conflict. There is no subject in custody at this point and cops are not pursuing anyone right now. Reports implicating Lindsay Lohan having ordered the beating are not supported by witness statements.
Meanwhile, LeMoine is in Florida Keys supposedly waiting for the situation to cool down and might seek refuge in Cuba. Lindsay Lohan has not commented about the incident even when she posted an Instagram picture on Sunday.
A source says LeMoine scuffled with Barron when the hotel scion refused to leave a party at LeMoine's rented house. LeMoine used to co-own East Village Heathers. Barron reported said, "Don't you know who I am? Do you know who my sister is?" and just snapped at LeMoine, pushing and shouting at the latter. That's when LeMoine hit Barron.
Barron posted a photo of his injured face on Instagram later where his sister, Paris Hilton threatened his attacker and another person believed to be Lindsay Lohan. She commented, "They both will pay for what they did. No one f---- with my family and gets away with it!!"
Celebrity Web site TMZ.com showed Barron confronting Lindsay as she climbed in a dark SUV after the incident in Miami. It didn't show any of the alleged altercation or injury. According to TMZ, Barron has already spoken to a lawyer and he wants to sue both Lindsay Lohan and Ray LeMoine. They used to be friends but Lohan already has a strained relationship with the Hilton family for years.
