Now, here's a thing.
Paddock had a brother called
. Bruce is described (in that linked story) as living in California. Bruce and Stephen had/have a brother called Eric, who lives
in Orlando, Florida.
There's a Bruce Paddock who is a multi-millionaire, having founded
Paddock Laboratories in 1977
before selling it a few years
ago. Last year, Bruce spent $16m
mansion house in Fort Lauderdale.
The laboratory Bruce Paddock is listed (White Pages)
as currently living in "Fort Lauderdale"
having previously lived in "Minneapolis" (MN). But according to a "rich-and-famous" tour site, he is also listed as living in a handsome ocean-facing
mansion Wayzata (MN).
Is Bruce Paddock (brother of Stephen) the same person as the "Paddock Labs" Bruce?
Since "Paddock Labs" Bruce is so wealthy, and apparently has two separate houses, is California just the location of another of his homes? This could
explain why Stephen left Florida for California, quitting the East Coast for the West, a choice which is otherwise unexplained (so far). He was
travelling from one brother to be near another.
profile of the millionaire Bruce Paddock. Looks quite similar (jaw, eyes, nose) to Stephen. Biography claims his father died when he was 12. Stephen's
father was sent to prison when Stephen was 15. The ages at which each Paddock "lost" their fathers roughly line up.
Is the dead father story a cover for an embarrassing bit of personal history? That's exactly what the Paddock kids
when Paddock Snr went to prison.
Mr. Paddock and his three brothers were raised by their mother, who told the children that their father had died when in fact he was in prison,
Eric Paddock said.
1)Stephen Paddock was a millionaire, but no-one's really sure how.
2) His brother Bruce Paddock has the same name as a pharmaceutical millionaire.
3) The millionaire Bruce Paddock has a large house, a two-hour drive south of Melbourne (where Stephen lived), which in turn is a two hour drive south
of Orlando (where the other Paddock brother (Eric) lives).
4) Bruce bought his Florida home within a year of Stephen moving from Florida to California.
5) Stephen moved to California, where his other brother claims to live
It could all be coincidence, or perhaps there's something murkier going on. Anyway, here it is, in case anyone can make sense of it (if there is sense
behind it at all).
