    Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Had Recent Large Gambling Transactions

    On several occasions, Stephen Paddock gambled more than $10,000 per day — and in some cases more than than $20,000 and $30,000 a day — at Las Vegas casinos, according to an NBC News source who read the suspect's Multiple Currency Transaction Reports (CTR) and a casino gaming executive.


    According to a U.S. statute, a CTR is a Treasury- and IRS-mandated report that casinos have to file when "each transaction in currency involving cash-in and cash-out of more than $10,000 in a gaming day."

    FRIENDS of Australian “person of interest” Marilou Danley say she left the US for the Philippines two weeks before the worst mass shooting in United States history.

I have a feeling that the victims and their families will at least have their medical and funeral expenses paid by business and kind people that connect with Las Vegas. It can never erase or undo what this one human has done, but at least it can take that one small hardship away. I feel like Mr. ROgers, looking for the good in the middle of tragedy.
    Pretty sure it was Stephen J Cloobeck, according to the GoFundMe going around. He has to do several donations because they limit each donation to $50,000. He's very well known for his generosity. He owns Diamond Resorts, which is headquartered (I believe) in Las Vegas.

    Lots of generous people out there and I don't think it hurts to highlight that. In fact, it needed. Not to go completely off topic, but we need the light in the dark, especially when it is darkest, like right now.

    I felt the same way watching the news tonight, and there was something about the person reporting from Las Vegas that was just... I don't know how to describe it. So human, clearly in pain, keeping it together throughout the report. It was another part of cementing it as real in my mind. If that makes sense.

    CARIIS, I think his wealth situation is a little odd, too. On CNN and other news media, they still report that he only worked for Lockheed Martin for a few years, many years ago. I don't see how that's enough to allow him to have enough income to invest in real estate and become a multi-millionaire. He obviously didn't come from a wealthy family. Maybe more will come out with time.

    I'm also dubious about him having much good net income from gambling, especially playing video poker and slots. The house always wins in those kind of games. You can win big and lose big. It seems odd, but maybe not.

    ETA: Washington Post says he also worked as an accountant. Wonder which job he retired from?

    OT reading that might be interesting. I suddenly remembered this man. Found dead and he owned 1,200 guns. No one knew a thing.

    Dead man with cache of 1,200 guns identified -- 'He was just a loner'
    Anderson, 93, said she knew little about what Lash did after he left UCLA because his communication with the family was limited. He never told her what he did for a living or where his money came from, she said.

    “He was just a loner, as far as we were concerned,” she said. “He just became weird because he changed all of a sudden.”

    Anderson said Lash was sick and at one point sought holistic medicine for treatment. Police said he had late-stage cancer when he died.
    Man found dead in car with 1,200 weapons at home thought he was a spy

    Inside his own head, Jeffrey Alan Lash was a secret government operative under constant surveillance by the CIA, the FBI or both.

    He spent lavishly to build up an arsenal of 1,200 firearms, six and half tons of ammunition and explosive-making materials, which he piled high in every room of the small condominium he shared with his fiancee in a well-heeled hillside enclave high above the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles.
    There was a thread here too, but I can't find it now.

    Female partner

    -One possible scenario: could it be that she was breaking things off with him? And after having sent so much money to her and her family he decides to make a dramatic exit in response to her checking out of the relationship? That would also be a way of exposing her as an accomplice-to whatever she may have knowledge of? ALL speculations only, as I have not seen the latest evening news.

    Yeah, something is off. How big were his real estate investments? Enough to bankroll his gambling?

    More from the Washington Post article: According to his brother he would play at casinos for days at a time, was well known.

    He recalled one time when the entire family took over the top floor of the Atlantis at the casino’s expense.

    His brother was very particular about the games he played. “It had to be the right machine with double points, and there has to be a contest going on. He won a car one time,” Eric Paddock said.

    “He’s known. He’s a top player. He’s the small end of the big fish.”
