VEGAS MYSTERY DEEPENS: Police Find Child Porn, STOCKPILES of Weapons

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.19.18

Investigators and local police held their first press conference in over three months on Friday, updating the public on the escalating questions and bizarre theories surrounding Stephen Paddock’s murderous rampage on the Las Vegas Strip.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo spoke publicly regarding the ongoing investigation for the first time since October 13, releasing an 81-page report on the mass shooting that seemed to raise more questions than it answered.

Lombardo told journalists in Las Vegas that investigators had discovered “numerous” child pornography images on the gunman’s laptop, as well as Google searches on how to evade SWAT tactics and information on multiple public venues.

Law enforcement went on to confirm they were actively investigating an unidentified “person of interest” in connection with the case, but added the suspect was not Paddock’s girlfriend Marilou Danley. The report then details Paddock’s increasing stockpile of deadly weapons, saying from 2016 to 2017 the gunman legally purchased “55 firearms.”

“I realize it’s been three months since you have received an update on the 1 October shooting,” Lombardo told reporters Friday afternoon. “We have done a lot of work trying to piece together what happened.”

“This report won’t answer every question, or even the biggest question as to why he did what he did,” Lombardo said. “We are all going to have to be patient and let the investigation run its course.”

VEGAS MYSTERY DEEPENS: Gunman's Hard Drive VANISHES from Crime Scene

A laptop recovered from the 32nd story hotel suite where Stephen Paddock launched his deadly assault in Las Vegas had its hard drive intentionally removed prior to the shooting; further clouding the gunman’s motives and raising new questions over why he intentionally covered his tracks.

According to ABC News, Paddock intentionally removed the hard disk before SWAT officers stormed his hotel room, but the drive’s location remains a mystery and has not yet been recovered.

The disk may provide insight into why Paddock launched his rampage and how he avoided detection.

Federal investigators also believe Paddock purchased forensic software that allows individuals to permanently delete records and files from a personal computer, again signaling the gunman intended to conceal his motives from investigators.

The Las Vegas Police Department and the FBI are struggling to come to grips with the deadliest mass shooting in American history. Mass shooters commonly leave behind manifestos, writings, or digital footprints that shed light on their atrocities.

So far, little is known over why Stephen Paddock, a former accountant from Mesquite, Nevada, went on his murderous rampage that left 58 people dead and over 500 injured.

The mystery surrounding the Mandalay Bay security guard injured during Stephen Paddock’s deadly rampage earlier this month continues to widen; with his union boss telling reporters he hasn’t heard from the man since he visited an emergency care clinic days ago.

According to Fox News, security guard Jesus Campos suddenly vanished last week; disappearing just moments before he was set to address reporters and give “his side of the story.” Campos’ union boss spoke with reporters about his last minutes with the guard, adding he hasn’t heard from him since.

“For the past four days, he’s been preparing … we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr. Campos was gone,” said David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America.

“Right now I’m just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is. It’s highly unusual,” he added. “I’m hoping everything is OK with him and I’m sure MGM or the union will let [media] know when we hear something.”

Campos finds himself at the center of the ongoing investigation of the Las Vegas massacre earlier this month, the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States.

According to the official police timeline, Campos was shot as he approached Stephen Paddock’s 32nd story hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino just moments before the gunman opened fire on a country music festival; killing 58 people and injuring hundreds.
