    pistol in mouth I believe it was Daily Mail

    shot as many as 200 rounds through the door, injuring the guard.

    several containers of explosives

    It was stated today that he fired at least 200 rounds at that security guard. Terrifying.

    I don't know if this could be possible...just trying to figure something out like everyone else... but...

    Could MD have been involved with a terrorist group in any way, and the funds were being sent to fund that? Could he have been leaving her, and truly did send the money, and use her casino card to point the FBI at her for the terrorist connection? I don't know.

    I keep thinking there's some money laundry, gun selling...something we don't know about that enabled him to have that lifestyle. Something threatened the life he knew. Maybe that failed lawsuit for falling. He could have been losing more than winning lately, and while maybe not as financially strapped as some of us are, if others in the family are dependent on his money to survive, and he has this status with the family of being a multimillionaire ... it would crush his image. He wouldn't be able to support his mother, brother, ladyfriend and whoever else. I would imagine falling from that tall horse would be a hard fall.

    Las Vegas gunman's secret life thwarts investigators' hunt for motive

    Sheriff Joseph Lombardo believes shooter likely had an accomplice

    The Associated Press Posted: Oct 05, 2017 1:06 AM ET
    Lombardo said Wednesday that Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition and several containers of an explosive commonly used in target shooting that totalled 23 kilograms in his car. But it wasn't clear what, if anything, Paddock planned with the explosives, he said.

    In response to a question, Lombardo said investigators were examining the possibility Paddock's purchase of more than 30 guns in October 2016 may have been precipitated by some triggering event in his life. He did not elaborate.
    On Sept. 28, the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and real estate investor checked into Mandalay Bay and specifically requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators.
    Paddock wasn't able to move into the room until Saturday, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and disclosed the information to the AP on condition of anonymity.

    It seems ironic that he would call the office to complain about the clients staying one floor under his because their country music was too loud, but didn't seem to realize his gunshots were going to be heard on other floors as well.

    Too much that is seriously just off with this case. JMO!

    He could have been mixed up with any amount of things. I noticed people in the previous thread (now closed) talking about a receipt that was room service for two. It's not that unheard of for men to have "guests" (escorts) in their expensive suites in Las Vegas. When I was in Vegas, the ground was littered with cards (pictures and phone numbers) of escorts. People literally hand them out on the strip. I wouldn't be surprised to learn he had "company" in those days leading up to this.

    Arms dealer? Laundering?

    Something is off. Something is different. It's as if LE is asking in their own way if anyone has more information about him. And as Lola mentioned above, I have no doubt he perhaps had a bit of fun in his room in the days leading up to this. Curious about DNA samples in room. Someone out there possibly paid a visit.

    Not sure if this has been posted, but sounds like the security guard really was instrumental in stopping the shooter.

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/security-gu...ry?id=50290318

    Campos provided information over the phone that helped authorities locate the 32nd-floor room that Paddock was firing from, a spokesperson for the union said.


    Also sounds like he's lucky to be alive.

    You could be right investigators looking for mystery woman seen with Vegas shooter.

    I'm wondering about this receipt development. The date is 9/27/17 (Friday). It shows an order to room 32135. Yet, other reports say that SP was in another room at that time. He was moved into the requested 32135 room when it was vacated on Saturday. Which would have been sometime on 9/28/17 after normal check out time I would guess.

    Receipt:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-massacre.html

    Info on room request/change:
    "A person who has seen Mandalay Bay hotel records that have been turned over to investigators said Wednesday they show Stephen Paddock asked for the two-room suite on the 32nd floor when he checked in last Thursday. The room wasn't available until Saturday and he moved into it then and opened fire from it the next night, killing dozens and wounding hundreds."

    I could be totally wrong, but I honestly do not believe he was being "funded" or "funding" an international terrorist group...

    I agree. I think he has saved more lives and probably another entire event of violence and destruction than he will ever realize. I think shooter thought that the security guard was one of many and he was caught. He didn't escape.in time. I think his plan was to hide in plain sight. Get out of the hotel like a scared guest, just like everyone else.

    Also, for the number of guests- they ask me every time I order. It's because they ad silverware and a glass of water for each person. There have been times I said 1 that they put 2, so that I would have extra rolls or water or whatever. That ordered meal looks like something 1 person might order and have something for later.

    I have been meaning to mention- on the cart on the hallway with the camera..... you can see the cord running off the back. And In the pic of the busted front door, you can see the same kind of wire going along the hallway.
