Updated 10/7/2017. The tragic scene that unfolded on the Sunday evening of the Route 91 Harvest Festival will forever remain burned into our memory. Lets go over the facts, look at the conspiracies and review the incident best we can.
UPDATED with latest details and videos in this developing story
The massive holes that have yet to be filled in the story is giving birth to some conspiracies… some that do beg to question the reality the media is telling us. There are lots of stories floating around, lets take a look at them. Only time and further investigations will tell us for sure the reasons, but let us know what your thoughts are.
Was this a CIA operation? Perhaps it was a push for a political agenda on gun control? Quite possibly Stephen Paddock somehow has ties with the Islamic State due to sending $100,000 to the Philippines? Equally possible, he may have been a part of a radical Antifa chapter? Somehow an operation of some secret shadowy government agency? Was he being blackmailed and simply a fall-guy? Or, Ultimately, was this the operation of a single demented 64 year old lunatic? One who happened to be quite the “gun guy” and have military-style accuracy at 400 yards? It’s too early to tell for sure, but what is for sure, is our prayers go out to those families that were affected by this tragedy. I cannot even begin to comprehend what they must be going through right now.
The actual facts we know so far:
- Just after 22:00 (10 PM) the mass shooting was carried out at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Killing 59 people and injuring over 530.
- Upon identification, the shooter was 64 year old Stephen Paddock.
- He fired into the crowd of an estimated 22,000 people from the 32nd floor windows of his Mandalay Bay suite.

- He STAYED in this same hotel and suite last year during the same concert.
- The shooting continued for over 10 minutes, using what is believed to be a “bump stock” which allows for automatic style fire from a semi-auto rifle.
- He wired $100,000 to his girlfriend in the Philippines a week before the incident (The Philippines also being a hotspot for the Islamic State – something to note)
Body Cam footage from Police
- Mr. Paddock apparently had cameras set up within his suite, as well as cameras in the halls.
- The halls for monitoring when the police arrive.
- Question begs why he had one in the room, or the footage that has yet to be released if the footage exists.
- There were over 20 guns found in the suite, along with thousands of rounds of ammunition.
- FBI is currently looking into the motive, but believe that he acted alone.
- His girlfriend left the country only days before the incident.
As of 10/7/2017
- He had been on anxiety medication since June. Side affects of the anxiety medicine are aggression.
- 50 pounds of Tannerite explosives were found in his car, enough to create a napalm bomb to take out a large chunk of the Mandalay Bay if hit with a bullet.
- He had stayed at two hotels overlooking other festivals. All with the same time-frame. Checking in before the event and leaving the day after. He did this in Chicago as well. As is planning what festival would be best?
- Following the hail of bullets, Paddock was not planning on getting caught or killing himself… he appears to have planned an escape from the hotel!

With the facts we know so far out of the way, lets look at the conspiracies and alternative media that is out there from eye witness reports, to holes in the facts, and questions unanswered.
When the calls began to come in they were reports of multiple shooters. Now, we can’t always believe eye witness accounts, as they change from person to person.. all true investigators know this. Take eye witness accounts, especially in the heat of the moment with a grain of salt. However, it does beg to question why it was reported so many times that there were multiple gunmen when it was supposedly only one?
After police had apprehended the shooter and EMT’s were running around attempting to save people’s lives, the police shut off the lights to the area and pronounced “everyone here is already dead”. While they weren’t sure if there were other shooters, truly there was some miscommunication.

The hotel is 400 yards from the stage where the concert was taking place. For a 65 year old man to have broken the full tempered glass windows and aim with such precision at such a distance seems as if he would have required some training. Yet he didn’t have any (that we know of).

With a recent interview on CNN, Officer Newton states more details about the letter that was found in the hotel room. This brings more questions than answers. Here is what he stated:
“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” He also stated “So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”
From that, it seems as if he must have had some training, if that is the case, because a lot of math goes into learning bullet trajectory. Soldiers spend months and years perfecting their aim, learning how a bullet drops and the science that goes on behind simply pulling a trigger.
The following video shows suspected gun shots from only about a 1/3rd of the floors up, that is not the 32nd floor.
That’s not to say that there weren’t shooters on the 32nd floor as well, but the video DOES appear to show what could be gunfire coming from the floors below as well. While this isn’t proof, and the windows on the lower levels aren’t broken, it was pretty interesting and does raise some questions. Some have stated that the windows at lower levels open slightly.

This further backs the theory of multiple shooters. Check it out.
So, lets assume that there was only one shooter – because it has yet to be proven that there was more than one. How would this 65 year old man have smuggled over 300 pounds of automatic weapons into a heavily guarded *casino*? Not just a hotel, but a heavily guarded casino? And again, breaking through fully tempered glass. Is it too far-fetched to think that he may have been a fall guy for a yet bigger story we may never know?
When interviewed, Stephen’s brother stated “I can’t fathom” his brother did this “He isn’t a ‘gun guy'”.
UPDATE 10/7 Body language expert reviews the interview with Stephen's brother. I believe he knows more than he is letting on. VERY FASCINATING.
The video below had over 500K views, and it has now been removed. I found another upload of it under a different profile. Someone is trying some censorship.

Here is a fantastic video to take you deeper into the rabbit hole.
Conclusion so far?
It’s obvious that something just doesn’t add up. Maybe we will receive more intel about this from his girlfriend now that she is being interviewed. Until we know what happened, let us remember the heroic actions of the fellow concert-goers, and emergency response crews that helped save countless lives that evening. Let us know your thoughts, but please be respectful of those lives lost and the families of those who lost loved ones.
