A search of one of the shooters vehicles turned up
several pounds of Ammonium nitrate.

So he was planning well in advance.

I'm wondering if he was initially only going to spray the crowd & cause mayhem as a distraction, & bomb somewhere else. I could see it panning out with planning, slipping out of the hotel in the early reactions stage with panicked people all around and he'd be lost in the crowd easily.

I still highly suspect Antifa involvement, if they could have one guy massacre a crowd & slip out with the fleeing to blow something up, they could be a formidable, easily camouflaged domestic threat to everyone.

That only has 88. Earlier someone posted something claiming there's been like 275 this year alone already.

You are correct that the girlfriend isn't in the country. They had already reported that as confirmed this morning and she was no longer a person of interest.

I may be imagining things,

But didn't early reports say paddock created an account on social media and uploaded pics of himself only a day before this?

Does anyone else remember reading or hearing this?


Don't know, but I do know that there have been a stream of fake FB, Twitter etc profiles popping into and out of existence since this happened purporting to be him and his girlfriend.

LOTS of fake stuff coming through. Proceed with caution.

The definition of mass shooting changes depending on what narrative is being pushed.

Look like reflections to me.


It's so blocky I don't know how anyone can say with confidence what it is or what it isn't unless they were actually there.

You said it was either money or the woman


I did. I also said that's how the songs go, which was a joke that those are the only two reasons (and a reference to the post to which I originally replied).



I'm just not necessarily seeing the money part


I am. He apparently gambled a lot. In Vegas. Of course, without knowing the status of his finances, or the significant financial transaction reported earlier, I can only speculate.


Just because someone gambles a lot doesn't necessarily mean they are bad with money or are in trouble though.


Never said it was.

But most people that gamble a lot don't take over a dozen guns and shoot up a concert from a hotel room, either; therefore, the money angle is highly probable, considering it was Vegas, in a place he apparently frequented.


That makes no sense. Why then not just go after the casino or whatever other establishment you owe money to and shoot that up, if you're gonna kill yourself in the end anyway.

Explosive material was also found in a vehicle, which would indicate he was planning more. So again, I don't buy money troubles as the cause.

Certainly true.

I even take the official police statements with a grain 9f salt.

It seems like often times in these situations a rush for answers leads to incorrect info.

He also had several pounds of tannerite at his house in Mesquite.

I have a lot of questions at this point, but one thing for certain
he did not just 'snap'.

She is in Tokyo and probably will come back to the states to be interviewed by the authorities.

He had AR-15's modded for full auto.

He was a millionaire who liked to gamble and had his own plane.

Still no motive being put forward.

Yeah, I think it was about 14 hours before the shooting. One Instagram post of what sure looked like him smiling.

So GF was a high stakes dealer...and he was a high stakes gambler.
Same hotel casino?

He checks in on 28th. She leaves country the next day.

A dude who worked for Lockheed / NASA and friends might just be crafty enough to modify some firearms.


Yes, a pilot should be able to calculate some mods. But if a MIC guy needs a full auto machine gun, there should be easier ways to get one.

Lockheed, NASA... whats the name of this non-existent airport near Las Vegas?


And how long will it take until MSM serves us a Russia-NK-Iran followup chapter to this story?
