US judge unseals Vegas shooting warrants; Paddock emailed about bump stocks

Source: Law Vegas Now




LAS VEGAS - FBI agents knew the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history left behind big caches of guns, ammunition and explosives when they sought warrants to search his properties and online accounts.

A U.S. judge in Nevada unsealed documents Friday showing some of what federal agents learned about Stephen Paddock in the week after the Las Vegas shooting.

They also show that agents sought the email, Facebook and Instagram accounts of Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who was in the Philippines during the Oct. 1 shooting.

1. Not much information in this report to solve the mystery

Although some CT nut in the twitter comments has it all figured out!

2. Not really.

Mostly "he bought guns and ammo in the year before, and so was planning it all meticulously."

Or "his girlfriend helped him load magazines" and, well, loading magazines is suspicious all by itself. Now, if they'd said "helped him load 50 magazines" as opposed to "helped him load 3 magazines" there could be some way of justifying the suspicion. Some idea of time would helpful.

Tease.

3. Real strange fact. Over 600 rounds fired

But the "immediate at the crime scene" photos

Displayed no shells (or burn marks from the heat thereof.

This thing stinks

4. I don't think we've seen all the photos and none around the windows he shot from or any ....

shells that would have gone out of the windows he fired from.

5. Curious

 

I hadn't read what you posted and tho I once qualified in the service with an M-16, I'm no expert as to dealing with an automatic weapon - specifically, the spent shell casings. That said - if he truly was meticulous with the planning, is it not possible he devised some way to keep those casings from flying all over the room? Knowing you were going to be laying out a "carpet" of casings around where you'd be shooting, he'd realize it would start to get tough to move around without falling on his ass.

6. We've only seen one or two photos of the staging area

It appears he actually fired through the windows, behind the closed curtains. One would assume the ejected casings hit the curtains and fell to the floor to his right.

8. All seems so staged

And the silence, aftermath, stranger.

It's - as if - another blip on the radar, went away

9. It's awful quiet when you swap out the barrel of an M60 with the spare....

in the middle of a firefight, too. Methinks this Paddock asshole cooked every rifle he had, and realized he was a dead duck.
