Las Vegas killer's plan to maximise casualties

09 Octobre 2017

Stephen Paddock called a Chicago hotel he had booked for Lollapalooza back in August to tell them that he wanted someone to call if, before check-in, he couldn't get a view room - a room that overlooked the venue.

Baffled police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, still lacking a clear motive for the Las Vegas massacre of 58 people by a lone gunman five days ago, have appealed to the public to come forward with any information that might help solve the mystery. On Friday, the police recognized that she still had no way credible on its motivations.

"I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd", Officer David Newton from the Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 unit said.

He noted that in past mass killings or terrorist attacks, killers left notes, social media postings or information on a computer, or phoned police. The FBI has not found at this stage no sign of radicalization.

Police said Paddock managed to fire off over 200 rounds as the security guard approached the suspect's room alone.

The bloodshed might have lasted longer, with greater loss of life, but for a hotel security officer who was sent to check an open-door alarm on the 32nd floor, and discovered the gunman's whereabouts after the shooting started, McMahill said. She returned to the U.S. Tuesday.

His rooms at the Blackstone Hotel faced the park and were booked for Aug. 1 through Aug. 6 and Aug. 3 through Aug. 6, respectively, according to TMZ.. He has lost a lot of weight during this period and was not taking more care of his appearance.

In the days after the attack, it remained unclear why Paddock carried out his attack. "He descended into madness", says an investigator. Clips pulled from surveillance cameras around Vegas show footage of Paddock driving towards a secluded area that is known as a "shooting area".

"It's really imperative that the listening public have a very clear understanding that there are still a number of people out there that know that something looked out of place", McMahill said.

He said investigators were continuing to search for answers with "great tenacity".

With tracer rounds, which leave an illuminated trace of its path when fired, Paddock could have been more accurate with shots in the dark.

But one week after the horrific shooting, investigators are still searching for a motive. However, he can not confirm whether anybody else may have known about the incident before it was carried out.

"I don't think we've done a good enough job recognizing him and his actions, and for that, I apologize", McMahill said.

Tannerite was previously found in a auto Paddock parked at the Mandalay Bay and in another of his homes, in Mesquite, Nev.

Paddock was a resident of Mesquite, about a 90 minute drive to Las Vegas, and split much of his time between there and Las Vegas hotel rooms.
