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.”
