How exactly did they get a hold of this lady?
I think she was kidnapped by the Russian mob because of his gambling debts and that was their leverage to carry out the deed.

Has anyone considered the possibility that this guy was just in the wrong room at the wrong time and that this is a false flag attack?
Very possible the real culprit shot him and dumped his body in there for cops to find.
I didn't think of that actually.

Unfortunately we live in such a divisive society, both in our domestic and foreign views that attacks are inevitable.
Until we change our societal view, these are going to be a constant as they have post WWII as we exited isolationism.
Once we become comfortable enough with out domestic and world view and stop approaching both with dominance, we'll start to see less backlash.

simple, a crime of boredom.
when you have all you need, and the worst part of your day is a hangover from an amazing night last night... then the devil will find work for idle hands to do...
he didn't want to die nameless...
So this nut takes weeks to plan this operation to the hilt and you think it's boredom ?
There's still something not making sense, if this was pre-planned. Why take the risk of bringing so many guns up to the room, if you wanted to avoid being detected at all costs?
Was there a GUN SHOW in town? If so, that could explain why Paddock casually transported and stored so many weapons in his hotel room. And why the maids didn't think anything was out of the ordinary.

I think his girlfriend is part of this puzzle in some way. Very odd that she would check into the room by herself and under her name on September 28th, and then conveniently be somewhere on the other side of the World 3 days later leaving her credit card and the shooter behind in the room to shoot up the festival. Something doesn't add up.
