    I bet it will.

    But the medical examiner will be pretty busy with 59 other autopsies trying to figure out how they died.

    Lol, I have come up with no conspiracy theory ,doofus.

    You are just over-reacting, no surprise, because I am simply asking questions about the media narrative, and that does not equate to a theory of anything, bub.

    Why would he have purchased all those guns for one suicidal shooting?

    It does not add up.

    Hinkley tried to kill Reagan in order to demonstrate his love for Jodie Foster. Who the hell knows this guy's motivation.

    usually because 1+1 = some random number to a crazy person.

    They died of gunshot wounds. Paddock will be taken to a police forensic pathologist who won't have 59 other bodies to worry about.

    This case is so much like the Texas sniper case, that it would not be surprising to find a brain tumor as the same cause.

    "It does not add up."

    But shooting 600 people at a concert makes perfect sense? Why are you setting a standard of "sense and sensibility" for a psychopath? What doesn't "add up" is the assumption this was a completely rational process.

    Just wait for the facts people. Speculation is just a nice way to describe make believe time.

    Give it a rest

    My thoughts are to wait and see what turns up in the search of his house and what info they release on that, his emails, innernetz activities, etc., and why his girlfriend happened to be out of the country, etc.Could be weeks before we get a decent scenario.

    Very early on while rumors were still flying I heard something about this Hispanic woman who was going around warning people. Since that very early period in the events nobody has said anything about it. My guess is that it never happened and was quickly dismissed by the media and authorities.

    As for his girlfriend "converting him to jihadism" what we know is that she is an Australian citizen, recently divorced, who is described on her Linkedin page as a "gambling and casino professional". Hardly fits the profile of a devout radicalized Muslim.
