Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock was germophobe, possibly bipolar

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock was germophobe, possibly bipolar

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo released a preliminary report Friday on the October 1 attack on an outdoor concert staged from a room at the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel and said he did not expect criminal charges to be filed against Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who had been named as the only person of interest in the case.

A federal grand jury is hearing evidence in a case that spun off from the shooting investigation, the sheriff said.

Federal court documents made public Friday showed that as of October 6, the FBI considered Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, "the most likely person who aided or abetted Stephen Paddock". His searches included "summer concerts 2017", "biggest open-air concert venues in United States of America", "how crowded does Santa Monica Beach get", "How tall is Mandalay Bay", "life is attractive expected attendance" and "do police use explosives", among other phrases. Though he believed Paddock could have had bipolar disorder, Paddock "did not want to discuss that topic further with him". "Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles", according to the report. Readers might remember that no suicide note or manifesto was found in Paddock's hotel room. Among his searches was "do police use explosives", the report said.

Paddock, who fatally shot himself in his hotel room, had told friends and relatives that he always felt ill, in pain and worn out.

Too often, we are told women hit a barrier in promotion or pay because they are expected to take time off work to have children. Ms Ardern said she and her partner were both happy about the news. "I'm not the first woman to work and have a baby", she said.

The 64-year-old retired accountant was a high-stakes gambler and real estate investor. CNN previously reported that Paddock's brother was charged with possession of child pornography.

Authorities have said they found no link between the attack and global terrorism. He looked up police and SWAT tactics, as well as other potential targets.

From his perch on the 32nd floor of the hotel, Paddock sprayed gunfire for more than 10 minutes down on concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on October 1. He was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head when police broke his door down after his shooting spree, and despite the investigation, investigators have established no motive for the crime.

"We do not anticipate charges being brought forward against Marilou Danley", said Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo when announcing the release of a preliminary investigative report, the New York Post reported.
