Vegas Investigation Details Emerge: New Suspects, Child Porn Discovered

In the months following the shocking mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1st, very few questions surrounding the attack have been answered to the satisfaction of the American public.

When compared to other violent incidents within our nation and abroad, the lack of information being disseminated in this case by authorities has given rise to a number of nearly plausible theories as to why there has been such astounding silence.

Part of what has spawned this jump to conclusions is the fact that our alleged perpetrator is far from what we expected.  Stephen Paddock was a retired millionaire real estate investor who was a successful gambler and a possible illegal arms dealer.  As far as authorities have publicly concluded, Paddock had no known ties to Islamic extremists.  The evidence on this was so clear, in fact, that the FBI disputed ISIS’ wishful attempt to claim Paddock as one of their own.  Paddock just didn’t fit the mold of what many expected.

The other piece of the puzzle for this cockamamy cluster of conspiracies is the purported lack of evidence revealed by the FBI and local authorities.  Many internet sleuths will point to other terror incidents around the world, and the speed at which traces of the perpetrator are released to the media.  In Paddock’s case, in a city with security such as Las Vegas has, there have been no videos or Paddock entering the Mandalay Bay Hotel, loading his mobile armory onto a half dozen luggage carts, and meticulously weaponizing his 32nd floor suite.

What these conspiracy theorists believe is that information such as this is their right…a point that the FBI would likely argue is not the case.

We are now hearing more tidbits than ever before in the case of Stephan Paddock’s October 1st rampage, however, and they are spawning far more questions than answers.

“Investigators scanning computers belonging to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock found ‘numerous’ child pornography photos, the city’s sheriff revealed Friday, adding that the FBI is looking into a person of interest in the case.

“Sheriff Joe Lombardo, in his first press conference since Oct. 13, 2017, released an 81-page preliminary investigative report on the shooting Friday that contains new photographs of Paddock’s hotel suite and online searches he conducted before the attack, such as for SWAT tactics and other potential public venue targets.

“Lombardo said the unnamed person of interest the FBI is looking into is not Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, and he reiterated that authorities believe Paddock was a lone shooter.”

The addition of a person of interest that isn’t Marilou Danley is certainly surprising, and could possibly tie back to Paddock’s alleged arms dealing.
