Hmm…Here’s The Reason Investigators Believe Vegas Shooter Had Help
The Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, has left many people flabbergasted as there are so many aspects of the deadly shooting that still do not make sense. Why would a 64-year-old multi-millionaire open fire on a crowd of innocent people? How could he have hauled more than 400 pounds of weapons and ammunition up to the 32 floor of a Vegas casino, equipped with heavy surveillance, without drawing any attention to himself? Why was his girlfriend abruptly shipped off to Pakistan with a whopping $100,000? How on earth did he fire so many rounds of ammunition in such a short period of time? Of course, gun experts have offered their expertise to explain how Paddock could have pulled off the shooting. But, there is still speculation that there was more than one shooter.
No Lone Wolf?:
According to The Guardian, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo’s press conference on Wednesday, October 4, has raised speculation about the possibility of Paddock having an accomplice. Based on everything Paddock managed to pull off, even Lombardo is wondering how he could have done so alone. While discussing the shooting, Lombardo voiced his thoughts about the possibility of an accomplice. “Do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” Lombardo asked, making mention of the arsenal of weapons the shooter amassed over the last 10 months, along with the discovery of explosives in his car. Lombardo added, “You’ve got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point.”
Although there are no leads about who could have possibly helped Paddock, there was speculation that his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was involved. At this point, she is still “a person of interest” but insists she had nothing to do with the shooting and had no idea he was planning a massacre. “It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone,” she said in a statement read out by her lawyer. “He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.”
The Other Woman?:
Of course, we’ve all heard about Paddock’s girlfriend, but apparently, there’s another reason why investigators aren’t totally convinced he was a “lone wolf.” Apparently, there was a mystery woman also seen at the hotel with Paddock just days before the shooting. According to BET, her connection to Paddock and possible involvement with the shooting remains unknown, but investigators are trying to find her for questioning in hopes of establishing some type of timeline. But to no avail,
Unfortunately, investigators are coming up short as they’ve been unable to find any other leads or establish any motive for the shooting. To most social media users, the shooting appears to be yet another conspiracy theory because none of it seems to add up. Stephen Paddock is responsible for killing 58 people and wounding more than 500 others.
