LAS VEGAS — The mystery surrounding the alleged assault of Eric Goodman, son of current Las Vegas Mayor Carol Goodman and former Mayor and noted criminal attorney Oscar Goodman leaves many unanswered questions.
Initially police released information that an unidentified man had been has been found injured at a park in Summerlin on Dec. 15 and were seeking information from the public apparently because the person found injured did not remember what happened.
Over the past week more information has been released and the mystery surrounding the assault of Eric Goodman continues.
Goodman, who serves as a Justice of the Peace in the Las Vegas Township, allegedly left his home at approximately 11 a.m. on Dec. 15 to go for a jog.
He was found by someone later that day, at approximately 2:35 p.m., in a restroom at South Tower Park and was unresponsive. Goodman suffered traumatic injuries and had been unable to provide police with any information.
Police seem unsure if he was attacked or perhaps he fell.
It is not known why he was in the restroom at the park. The park is billed as kid friendly and includes two shaded play areas, open play areas and restrooms.
Former Mayor Oscar Goodman said that when he was at the hospital an injury was visible on his head and half of his head was shaved. When Mayor Carolyn Goodman saw that half of his head was shaved, she thought he looked funny that way and the decision was made to shave his entire head.
When the second half of his head was shaved a second injury was found that the former Mayor said is indicative of an assault.
Goodman has since talked with police, however details of what he has said have not been made public further adding to the mystery surrounding the alleged assault of Eric Goodman.
Judge Goodman is currently at a rehabilitation center and is expected to return home in a few days.
Goodman who is single, was at one time romantically linked with one of his father’s aides.
