(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Friends say they are puzzled and mystified by the death of Scott Lewis, a hypnotist who was a fixture at the Riviera in Las Vegas for nine years.

Lewis died over the weekend in what authorities say was a fall from a hotel balcony in Sydney, Australia. Lewis was part of a touring group called The Illusionists 2.0 which had been touring Australia.

Lewis was 50. In addition to his Riviera appearances, he was a self-help author, motivational speaker and a clinical hypnotherapist.

Kellie Karl, Lewis’ longtime assistant and herself currently a hypnotist, tells KXNT that Lewis’s death confounds her. “The Scott Lewis that I know is not a person to jump from balcony to balcony 11 stories in the air. He did not drink, did not take drugs, he did not party. He was very cautious.”
