FBI Closes The Las Vegas Shooting Case...There's Only One Problem

Linkedin Share

Thanks to the power of the internet, and the connectivity of us all, it is rare in this day and age that we don’t get to the bottom of something.

It’s terrifying, yet true; we don’t often leave stones unturned thanks to the speed and ease at which we are able to share information.  This may be the greatest threat that the “global elite” will face in the coming years, as the working classes gain more and more knowledge…and with that knowledge often comes anger.

We are constantly being lied to, it seems, but we are getting infinitely better at exposing those lies.

That’s why a statement of closure by the FBI may be only the beginning for the rest of us.

The high-stakes gambler responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history sought notoriety in the attack but left his specific motive a mystery, the FBI said Tuesday as it concluded the investigation of the 2017 massacre that killed 58 country music fans.

While the agency found no “single or clear motivating factor” to explain why Stephen Paddock opened fire from his suite in a high-rise casino hotel, Paddock may have been seeking to follow in his father’s criminal footsteps, the FBI said.

The event itself was bizarre, and spawned a number of wild conspiracy theories as to the actual events and the reason behind them.

“It wasn’t about MGM, Mandalay Bay or a specific casino or venue,” Aaron Rouse, the agent in charge of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, told The Associated Press. “It was all about doing the maximum amount of damage and him obtaining some form of infamy.”

Paddock’s physical and mental health was declining. The 64-year-old’s wealth had diminished, and he struggled with aging, federal agents said. The findings were contained in a long-awaited reportcompiled by the FBI’s Behavior Analysis Unit, a group of experts who spent months examining several factors that might have led to the rampage.

“This report comes as close to understanding the why as we’re ever going to get,” Rouse said.

Perhaps we’ll never know what was streaming through the mind of that madman, thanks to the FBI’s absurd handling of the case.
