Laura Shipp, 50, of Las Vegas, got separated from her son, who is described as the “light of her life,” when the shooting began at Route 91 Harvest country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Her son, 23-year-old Corey Shipp, a Marine Reservist, spent Sunday night and the early Monday morning hours trying to find her. “She was a single mother from the day he was born,” said Steve Shipp, her brother, who confirmed her death Wednesday afternoon. “The two of them just had each other. They were very close.” Steve Shipp, who drove into Las Vegas from California, said his top priority is supporting his nephew and his family through the days ahead.
