I think the most obvious answer to explain the motive is the correct one

The Father of the Shooter was on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List. He wanted to outshine his Father as he was living in his Shadow. He wanted to be Number 1 and far exceed that Rank. After all we havent found any Political or Religious for the attack. ISIS claimed responsibility but there the Organization that cry's Attack.

Except he isn't number one, he's dead. Kind of hard to be on the Most Wanted list at that point.

Killing yourself precludes being included on that list.

You said he wanted to out do his father and mentioned the Most Wanted list.

I fear that this is a shortlived #1.
Some other whackjob will find a need to break the record.

Haha, oh they will.

He videoed the whole thing, so I'm sure he left his motive.

I'll be surprised if we ever see his statement.

Correct. I also said Far Exceed. Books and Movies will now be written about this guy. Criminal Justice Students like myself will now have to study this guy in College.

It's really not that uncommon of scenario as I've seen people making it out to be. When a psychopath goes haywire and decides to self-destruct itself, it usually does so in a manner that will harm or kill others. Typically not on this scale, but most psychopaths don't typically have the resources and means of this particular psychopath.

Doubtful. There's nothing to prosecute criminally at this point unless he comes back to life or it turns out there's an accomplice.

I can think of one. Multimillionaire used to gambling 10-40,000 a day loses it all... Uses his Comps (free rooms) for a last stand.

Kind of reminds me of the millionaire who lost it all and made the most complex bomb the FBI has encountered. They had to let it blow up. He did it for ransom at the casino he lost his fortune. No one died so no one really knows about it, happened in Lake Tahoe.

Lawsuits are for civil complaints, not criminal.

At various points of his life, Stephen Paddock worked for defense contractor Lockheed Martin


A clue maybe?



This is sort of odd.



Donald Judy, who was his next-door neighbor in Florida until two years ago, said the inside of Paddock’s home “looked like a college freshman lived there.” There was no art on the walls and no car in the driveway. Just a dining chair, a bed and two recliners. Paddock was constantly on the move, carrying a suitcase and driving a rental car whenever he stayed at the community near Cocoa Beach.





“They did seem to always stay up till midnight and sleep in till noon,” Judy said. “They always seemed to stay on Vegas time.”


Deep in debt to someone and owed them big time, so they wouldn't hurt his family?
