Investigators Close Vegas Shooting Case With No Motive For Why Shooter Killed 58


The motive behind Stephen Paddock’s slaughter of 58 people at Las Vegas’ Route 91 Harvest music festival remains a mystery 10 months after the deadliest mass shooting in US history, according to a final criminal investigative report.

“The goal of our investigation all along has been to provide the public with the clearest picture possible of the events leading up to” the shooting last year, “as well as motive,” Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Friday.

“What we have been able to answer are the questions of who, what, when, where, and how. What we have not been able to answer definitively is the why Stephen Paddock committed this act.”

Paddock fired about 1,057 rounds into the crowd between 10:05 p.m. and 10:16 p.m., according to the report. Police entered his room 52 minutes after the first shots were fired at the crowd and found Paddock, 64, dead on the floor of his hotel room with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The report marking the end of the 10-month investigation concluded that he acted alone.
“Despite early reports of multiple shooters in different locations, no evidence exists to substantiate any of those reports,” the report said.

  1. CNN? Lol. The cover-up continues. Why was Timothy McVeigh executed so quickly after being accused of allegedly blowing up some Federal building?

  2. It was done for the thrill of killings people. Nothing more. The man historically did violent sports and this was his last wish. I am surprised the media or authorities haven’t said this.

    • I’d guess something like that. It may also be a wish for fame, which many assassins seek, revenge on society which he feels wronged him, or some other reason or reasons. Bottom line is we just don’t know and any speculation is just that.
