Daily Mail has a lot of newly released police photos of Paddock's hotel room:

I'm still not buying Lombardo and the FBI's story, the scene looks way too laid out.
I think some sicko over did themselves to push an agenda, using Paddock as the fall guy taking the blame.

I'm still watching this case but I will venture to lay out my theory on what happened. First of all, the events in Saudi Arabia and the arrest of many Saudi royals is not a coincidence in my mind. The Four Seasons hotel occupying the top 5 floors of the Mandalay Bay and their co-ownership by Bill Gates and Bin Talal is not coincidental either. I think the Vegas shooting was an assassination attempt on either King or Prince Salman, however it was foiled due to doubles being sent out, one of whom was to attend the concert in an attempt to lure the killers out of the shadows and give Salman the right to bring the hammer down.
Many of the survivors talk about how they felt like the shooters were following them. Perhaps they were but trying to get to someone else. What about the helicopters? My suspicion is they were hired out by Bin Salman or the FBI to counter the shooters on the ground they knew would be there. Either the suspects or the intended victim ended up at the airport which is why there was the reports of shooters on the tarmac.
If that is indeed the scenario that happened you can see why our government needed a fall guy to take the blame. Paddock (if he was even real) is secondary, I don't believe he was the shooter but our government could hardly admit to allowing a known assassination attempt to go down which ended up killing dozens of American citizens.

The timing of how Alwaleed & his clique got purged shortly after this is definitely an interesting coincidence. He's in an actual prison now, reportedly the toughest one in Saudi Arabia.
“I don’t believe this is consistent with what the court ordered,” said Las Vegas attorney Maggie McLetchie, who represents the Las Vegas Review-Journal and The Associated Press in their November action demanding the release of the reports. “They (the coroner’s office) have delayed this for too long, and whatever stage the coroner’s report on Paddock is in, it should be provided to the Review-Journal and Associated Press without further delay. No more games. Release the records.”
“The court correctly recognized the presumption of public access to records, even when a mass tragedy occurs,” McLetchie added. “(The judge) also rejected arguments by the coroner’s office that there were any privacy interests with regards to the autopsy of Stephen Paddock, let alone any that outweighed the strong presumption of access to records in Nevada.”
The coroner was ordered on January 11 to pay nearly $32,000 in legal costs to the Review-Journal because it refused to release public records.
Page 26 of the dispatch logs that were released by LVMPD details the moments when the alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock, was located by a security detail at the Mandalay Bay. As actions were taken to assemble a team of officers to apprehend the suspect, a dispatcher shared the name of the alleged shooter located in Room 32-135, along with three females that were reported to be in the room with Mr. Paddock. However, the names of those three women are redacted from the report, while the checkout date listed for the women aligns with Paddock’s planned check out date of October 2, 2017. In the log, as seen on page 26, the following was documented as having taken place at 11: 02 pm the night of the shooting when police breached Paddock's room. "Units in control room 32 135. Suspect name of K(P)addock, Stephen. There three females in room."
The three women are then listed at #1, #2, and #3, with their check in and check out dates, but their names are redacted from the log. "Checked on (in) on 9-25 scheduled to check out Oct 2nd."
Other details revealed in the dispatch log include calls that were made to report multiple gunshot wounded victims hiding in fear for their lives all over the strip. There were panicked calls made from Sundance Helicopter about possible hostages taken.
