The latest and strangest turn in the Las Vegas massacre reveals that shooter Stephen Paddock had child pornography on his computer, according to sheriff Joe Lombardo
In a press conference on Friday, Lombardo revealed that Paddock’s computer had child pornography files saved onto it.
A Las Vegas law enforcement official also dropped another bomb last week, telling the press that the FBI is currently investigating a new person of interest.
Fox News reports:
Investigators scanning computers belonging to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock found “numerous” child pornography photos, the city’s sheriff revealed Friday, adding that the FBI is looking into a person of interest in the case.
Police also released a 81-page preliminary investigative report on the shooting Friday, containing new photographs of Paddock’s hotel suite and online searches he conducted before the attack, such as for SWAT tactics and other potential public venue targets.
Paddock’s brother, Bruce, was arrested last year by Los Angeles police for possession of child pornography as part of a separate investigation that began months before the Vegas attack.
Paddock gunned down 58 people in the Oct. 1, 2017 massacre, firing at a music festival crowd from the confines of his Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino suite.
The Drudge Report described the person of interest as a “mystery man,” who possibly helped Paddock plan the shooting.
According to The Gateway Pundit, local Las Vegas news outlet Metro 5 reported that key details surrounding the motive cannot be released because “additional suspects,” are still under investigation. Sheriff Lombardo previously claimed only one person is under investigation.
Metro lawyer Nick Crosby believes information about the additional suspects could be revealed in 60 days.
The judge did so in response to a lawsuit filed by CNN and several media organizations.
