Las Vegas Shooting Mystery Continues

Las Vegas Shooting Mystery Continues

Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people and wounded more than 700 others in a mass shooting in Las Vegas in October of 2017, carefully planned his attack for months, according to a new report published by the Las Vegas Police Department.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told a press conference that "the FBI has an ongoing case against an individual of federal interest", but he said he could not elaborate.

Mr Lombardo said police still do not know why Paddock carried out the killings.

On top of that, the report indicated that Paddock maybe had some mental problems, as he claimed multiple times to friends or family that he "felt ill, in pain or worn out".

His doctor thought he may have had bipolar disorder but told police that Paddock refused to discuss the possibility, the report said.

This week, officials also announced no charges are expected against Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

Weeks before the shooting, the couple stayed at Mandalay Bay hotel together but Paddock was acting strangely, Ms Danley told investigators. "Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles", she said. She also described him as "germophobic" with strong reactions to smells, always feeling ill, in pain and worn out, the Guardian wrote. He had lost a "significant amount of wealth" since September 2015, which led to "bouts of depression", the sheriff has said.

Yet he still managed to pay off his gambling debts ahead of the October 1, 2017 shooting.

Prior to committing the shooting Paddock had rented other hotel rooms overlooking outdoor concerts and had researched SWAT tactics, searching questions like "do police use explosives".

In May 2017, Paddock's internet search history included the terms "La Jolla Beach", "biggest open air concert venues in U.S.", and "how crowded does Santa Monica Beach get", according to documents made available by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Police also found notepads strewn around the room which had technical notes and reminders such as "unplug phones" and measurements including distance and bullet drop calculations.

Lombardo said the investigation found that Paddock had possessed child pornography.

After Paddock checked into The Ogden in downtown Las Vegas on September 17, searches for Las Vegas locales were registered, including "Excalibur Hotel & Casino", "Fremont Hotel & Casino", "NV gun shows", and "How tall is Mandalay Bay". He has pleaded not guilty. "We see no evidence of a terrorist attack", she said.
