I wonder what the autopsy will find.
My thoughts, too.
Unless some credible motive can be found for this man's actions it would be interesting to learn if there are some lesions or tumors on or in his brain which might account for what he did. But, unfortunately, they say he committed suicide, which probably means a bullet through the brain -- and that's that.
A Manchurian Candidate perhaps? If it were an outside force acting upon him who could it be? A terrorist org? A foreign govt.?
But at that range and height he could have used a crossbow and a fake credit/debit card to escape in order to rinse and repeat.
He was well known as a high roller a that casino
I doubt if he could have remained anonymous
That may be possible given this out of character behavior. However, medical conditions such as tumors often manifest themselves in more ways than one over time. There is no indication from family and friends that there were any changes to his behavior.
Case in point; Charles Whitman, who committed the mass shooting from the tower at UT Austin in 1966 had suffered from violent impulses for years prior to the shooting. It was discovered upon autopsy that he had a brain tumor. However, Whitman, unlike Paddock murdered his wife and mother and purchased all guns and ammo the morning of. Even medication doesn't explain Paddock. There had to be some outside force.
I have read where he did leave a note..
There is so much shit out there, its hard to tell whats reality.
I hadn't heard that
I agree with you, but there is something?
That is indeed a tantalizing possibility.
