Despite these new revelations, the change in the timeline of when the hotel security guard, Jesus Campos was shot still leaves police with little to go on. Over a week later and we still don’t have a motive for the shooting and we may never have one, but police still say they are sure Stephen Paddock acted alone. How can they be sure he acted alone in the planning?? He may have been the only shooter but for a 64-year-old retired accountant and millionaire gambler, it still doesn’t make sense how he was trained, where he trained and for how long he was preparing for the massacre.
According to police Paddock purchased at least 30 of the weapons he had in his home and in the hotel room over the past year from different gun stores in Nevada and Utah. He also tried to purchase tracer ammo which would have made it easier to determine where he was shooting. The note they found on the table in the hotel room apparently contained numbers on it, but the numbers were not phone numbers but calculations to determine the shooting distance, altitude, and gravity. In addition, it was disclosed that Paddock had traveled to the middle east and other foreign countries several times over the past few years, but police haven’t said if he traveled alone, where exactly he went and who he may have met. Other than these few traces of evidence and insight into his life, we are still left with more questions than answers. Hopefully over the next week or two more will be known about his travels, who he communicated with or met with overseas and in the Middle East.
