I found this: The Vegas Plot Thickens: The Connection Between The Shooter And An Intelligence Agency

Looking closely, the first thing you will notice is that the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had a pilot license and owned two planes. This is well-established fact. The tail number of one of those planes is N5343M, a Cirrus SR-20. You can see that this was owned by Paddock by going to the website Flightaware.com. But Paddock doesn’t own this plane anymore. It was grounded three years ago, and it’s now in the hands of none other than Volant LLC, which there is little information on.

However, Volant Associates is none other than a Department of Defense contractor. Meaning Paddock’s plane has been in the hands of the United States government for the past three years and grounded since – if Volant LLC is being used as a way to hide information. Considering what Volant Associates does, that wouldn’t be so far fetched. But the plane’s information is all easily verified here on Flightaware.com. It’s been in Roanoke, Virginia since April 25, 2014.


Curiouser and curiouser.

I don't take any drugs as of yet. I've no dog in this fight.

However that doesn't mean that there isn't a constant when it comes to these events.

I don't remember if it was the LVPD or the Sheriff now, but they promised more information could be and presumably would be released in 48 hours... let's hope we get many more answers then.

He sure did --

...1976 to 1985, letter carrier for U.S. Postal Service, agent for IRS, auditor for U.S. government’s Defense Contract Audit Agency, according to the Office of Personnel Management...

And according to the L.A. Times --

He worked for a predecessor to Lockheed Martin for three years in the late 1980s, according to a company statement.


Interesting career with the feds and their contractors...

LasVegasNow had it on stream but missed it, waiting for a YouTube replay.

Found Tweets in the meantime:
Tweet says:


Sheriff Lombardo: Officers found "well in excess of thousands of rounds in the [suspect's hotel] room." No suicide note was found.

Still wonder what was on the note. Maybe just a blank notepad provided with a pen(as hotels offer) despite slight pixelation at the top that may be a reflection or other. I pulled it into editing software but was too blurry/low quality of an image to retrieve anything.

It was also noted by police he was gambling alone. The room service receipt shared may or may not really allude to two people(IMO seems like for one person, why not two main meal-burger or other- purchases), considering he was claiming Marilou's info for the room.
Also, IMO if there was others involved, I'd assume they would have been more discrete and of course if he was a patsy.

I'm very interested in the note as well. It may have just been a standard issue blank pad... He seemed to like electronic equipment and videotaping himself. I think it's more likely he taped a statement before he started shooting.

I wondered at first if he had been set up, and perhaps even killed before the shooting began. But not once I knew about the video. I'm just trying to bide my time for more about what they found in the room. And maybe his homes too.

I've been thinking about that receipt for 2 people. If you were trying to lay low, using your girlfriends comp card, and you ordered room service, wouldn't it look suspicious if he always ordered for two but this time only for one? So, to keep your cover, you order for two, get it at the door, and tip the flunky a Franklin to keep them focused on that and not who is there.

Plausible.

Paragraph 1 says Volant LLC and #2 says Volant Associates. That would be two different companies. Is there evidence that Volant LLC is associated with the Associates?

Thank you, OP. The original thread has turned into "opinion time," and I've been relying on ATS for information.

Appreciated.

And about the burger order... do we know what time he ordered it? Paddock was supposed to be an insomniac, so maybe he ordered the burger to eat right away and the bagel to have later.

Ahhhh... I think that explains why sometimes references didn't sound right to me. I didn't understand what I was missing then, but that may be it.

I'm interested to know what the reason for the prescription for Valium was.

I'd bet the people that if anyone, the people that knew him best beyond his girlfriend will be high limit regulars and his executive hosts at the various casinos he frequented.

From what his brother said, his game of choice was video poker and according to the gf's sister's bf, he was using "an algorithm" by which he means, he was employing a strategy which isn't unusual. Serious video poker players always a system and are on the hunt for full pay games because some of them have expected returns in excess of 100%. If you have a large enough bankroll to not go bust during the downturns, you can grind out a ton of points with high limit video poker. And with coupons (and some casinos have playback bonuses), a tight player will make a profit over time. Video poker bets typically accumulate half as many points per dollar as slots because their payout is generally much closer to 100%.

But at $100 per bet, you're talking 10 tier points per at a Total Rewards participating property (Caesar's Entertainment and a few partners). I'm not familiar with the MGM rewards system but with TR, the top tier is Seven Stars and that's currently achieved at 150k tier points in a year. Somebody with his gambling habits could probably hit that in a few weeks.

It sounds like he'd spent maybe decades living most of the time in comped rooms. It's not that uncommon in Casino towns to meet people like him who basically live at the casinos (or in some cases, entirely live at casinos), even people who aren't wealthy. There's cliques of friends in most and they'll play on one another's cards to get up the points and the locals will book rooms for friends and stuff like that.

The article discusses that further at the link... it's fuzzy. Not much information about the one, not even a website. The two offices are located about 200 miles apart.

Lombardo said, “Look at this. You look at the weapon obtaining the different amounts of tannerite available, do you think this was all accomplished on his own, face value?”
“You got to make the assumption he had to have help at some point, and we want to insure that’s the answer. Maybe he’s a super guy, super hero–not a hero, super–I won’t use the word. Maybe he’s super — that was working out this out on his own, but it will be hard for me to believe that.”

Apparently he had enough money to hire anyone. Being in Vegas and all place has to be crawling with Intel. I assume Lombardo will recant this and move on soon enough.

Thanks for taking the time to line up those various articles. The content shows why this guy is so perplexing for the investigators. Lots of conflicting info...depending on who is being questioned.
