Las Vegas Shooter’s Laptop Hard Drive Missing, and Brother Arrested for Child Porn…

Amid all the sketchiness of the Mandalay Bay Massacre, and the weird disappearance of anything related to the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, a new report outlines that Stephen Paddock’s hotel room laptop was missing the hard drive.

Additionally, the shooter’s brother, Bruce Paddock (59), was arrested early Wednesday for possession of child pornography, Los Angeles police said in a news release. He is being held on $60,000 bail.

(Via AP) A laptop computer recovered from the Las Vegas hotel room where Stephen Paddock launched the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history was missing its hard drive, depriving investigators of a potential key source of information on why he killed and maimed so many people, ABC News has learned.

Paddock is believed to have removed the hard drive before fatally shooting himself, and the missing device has not yet been recovered, sources told ABC News.

Investigators digging into Paddock’s background also learned he purchased software designed to erase files from a hard drive, but without the hard drive to examine it is impossible to know if he ever used the software, one source said.

Authorities are examining every aspect of Paddock’s life — from his family, friends and associates to his travel patterns, health and finances. So far, a motive has been elusive to investigators.

The frequent gambler, described as a loner, spent months amassing his arsenal, staying under the radar with no one suspecting he would turn to extreme violence.

His finances did not appear to be a problem and Paddock had settled any debts he had with casinos shortly before the attack, a source said.

Other mass shooters in the United States have left behind writings or manifestos explaining their actions — however deranged those explanations may have been.

Paddock, however, left behind no such writings or evidence. (read more)

      Minnie I found this part of the article to be a bit surprising. As if they are going to say the same thing about the missing hard drive. Maybe in 54 years, the truth will finally come out. If I make it to 99 years of age I may finally learn the truth!

      From the article linked above:

      He is not the first mass shooter to destroy or hide digital clues.

      In 2007, Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung Hui removed the hard drive of his computer and disposed of his cell phone shortly before the massacre. Authorities even searched a pond for the missing digital media, but the devices were never recovered.

      The 2008 Northern Illinois shooter, Steven Kazmierczak, removed the SIM card from his phone and the hard drive from his laptop, and neither was recovered.

      In 2012, Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza had removed the hard drive from his computer and smashed it with a hammer or screwdriver.

            NO, a computer WILL NOT work without a hard drive. That is its brain, its heart and soul. That is where the operating system resides. Mind you, there are exceptions, but we have heard nothing about Paddock having any special setup. If the pictures of the crime scene are showing his laptop in working condition, with stuff displayed on the screen, then there would have to have been an additional, external hard drive connected to it. Alternatively, any sort of compatible media with either Windows or MacOS on it would do, depending on what system he was using. But I do not believe Paddock was that comuter-sophisticated, based solely on the fact that we have not been told about any such being discovered.

          Hard drives are the easiest part to remove from a laptop or a desktop computer. It doesn’t take a high IQ to remove it. Just call tech support and they can walk you thru it in no time flat. It is about the only part that is separate from the other parts. Just unscrew 2-4 screws on the bottom and remove the cover and there it is. Unplug it and put the cover back on with the screws.

          Maybe there wasn’t a hard disk in the first place. Your notebook can run without a disk.
          For instance: get a 128GB fast USB3 thumb drive, use Rufus to load Ubuntu Desktop bootable from the thumb drive, then set the notebook BIOS to boot from USB.

          Now, as long as the thumb drive is plugged in, you have a notebook that runs without any internal drive. And if trouble come, flush the thumb drive. Did anyone check the sewer coming frome the hotel?

            Newer computers often have a small m.2 format SSD as the system disc, and a larger SSD or spinning-rust drive as the data disc. He could have pulled the data disc, and left the m.2 drive in it.

            Having said that, there’d be a TON of clues left in the registry and various files on the little SSD.

            Then again, I think “the missing disc” is just another distraction.

            The most important thing missing here is THE TRUTH. It’s in very short supply anymore, and what passes for “common sense” is no longer common, nor sensible…

        With this in mind, I’d say about all of these cases that we have been told by authorities that these hard drives, sim card, digital media or whatever haven’t been recovered, but that doesn’t make it true.

        There’s no reason for Paddock to remove the hard drive. It would be much easier to just get rid of the computer.

        That means that someone else who was in that room – either before, during or after the shooting – took it. It could be an accomplice, if Paddock was a shooter. It could be Paddock’s murderer, if he wasn’t a shooter. It could be the FBI, trying to cover their tracks because they knew the contents would reflect a narrative they did not want out.

        Just for fun, I made up a list of things that I think we know, that I’m afraid will be forgotten as the “lone shooter” narrative takes over. I know it’s incomplete, and maybe some stuff is even wrong – feel free to correct it, but it’s amazing how much there is that you never hear about anymore.

        1. The October 1st 2017 shooting on a crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas resulted in 59 people dead, 527 injured. It was the largest mass shooting in US history.

        2. Stephen Paddock (SP), 64, of Mequite, NV was found dead in his Mandalay Bay (MB) room.

        3. SP was known as a retired multi-millionaire who was an avid video poker gambler.

        4. SP had no social media history and was not well known by neighbors.

        5. SP had a foreign girlfriend, a Philippine who was an Australian citizen, who was abroad at the time of the shootings.

        6. SP owned several residences in several states. Paddock’s Mesquite 2,000-square-foot home cost $369,022 and was paid for in cash.

        7. SP had also owned rental properties in Southern California and in Texas.

        8. SP is also said to have owned two planes and had a pilot’s license.

        9. Paddock worked for a predecessor company of Lockheed Martin from 1985 until 1988 according to his brother, Eric.

        10. Eric Paddock also said SP had “no religious affiliation” and “no political affiliation,”

        11. Aside from occasional use of anti-anxiety medication, there is no known significant medical or psychological history. He also had no criminal record.

        12. Paddock filed a slip-and-fall lawsuit against The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas casino in 2012. Both sides agreed to dismiss the lawsuit in 2014.

        13. Paddock purchased 33 firearms in the final 12 months of his life.

        14. There is no record of SP practicing at a gun range and he has no prior military training. “He’s never even drawn his gun,” his brother, Eric Paddock, said

        15. He occupied two rooms at the MB – a large (~1700sf) suite and a smaller second room, connected by an adjoining door.

        15. Windows were knocked out in both of the rooms, using a hammer.

        16. Shooting platforms facing the Route 91 Harvest country festival were constructed in both rooms, by the broken windows. It is said SP ran back and forth between these two rooms, firing into the crowd.

        17. At least 23 guns were found in the room, including a handgun, and AR-15 rifles, some set up with scopes, tripods and bump stocks to make them fire as an automatic. A bullet-resistant vest was also found.

        18. The MB rooms had surveillance cameras installed on the door of the suite enabling a viewing of the outside hallway. A camera was also found on a room service cart outside of the smaller, adjoining MB room occupied by SP.

        19. In addition to the firearms at the hotel, police found 19 firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and explosives (tannerite) at his home in Mesquite, NV.

        20. Ammonium nitrate, a high-nitrogen fertiliser often used in homemade bombs was found in his car.

        21. Not found was a high power rifle with scope that was purchased hours before the shooting.

        22. ISIS has claimed responsibility 3 times, saying he converted about 6 months before the shooting but have provided no evidence. The FBI said it wasn’t terrorism before they even searched his other properties.

        23. The timeline of the shooting has been adjusted multiple times with no clear final timeline established or evidence the supports the latest one.

        24. The latest timeline is that a security guard, Jesus Campos (JC), had been dispatched to the 32nd floor at 9:59 p.m following a report involving a door alarm.

        25. Around 10:05, after calling in his report that the door was unable to open, JC was fired upon as he was leaving the area, with about 200 rounds of ammunition coming from the suspects room.

        26. It is unclear if this attack was before or during the time the shooting on the crowd at the festival occurred.

        27. As JC was hiding in the hallway, a maintenance man, Stephen Schuck, (SS)arrived. He heard nothing unusual and had walked about halfway up the hallway before JC stuck his head out and told him to take cover. At the same time, shots came down the hallway again and he also took cover.

        28. The last shots on the 91 Harvest Festival were fired at 10:15 pm.

        29. The police arrived on the floor at 10:17 pm.

        30. The police said since no shots were being fired when they arrived, they took the time to clear the floor and await the arrival of SWAT.

        31. SWAT breached the suite room about an hour later, at 11:20 pm, where Paddock was found dead.

        32. SWAT then breached the door of the adjoining room, as it was locked from the inside.

        33. It is unclear why the shooting stopped before LEOs arrived on the floor.
        34. It is unclear how the door to the second room would be locked from the inside when SP was found in the suite room.

        35. Jesus Campos has only made one public appearance to talk about that evening. The MB is owned by MGM and, after cancelling appearances on 5 network and cable news shows, JC and SS appeared on an MGM owned entertainment show (Ellen Degeneres) where JC was asked no questions about the timeline, including what time he was dispatched to the 32nd floor, what time he was shot at, and what time he notified MB of the shooting. Ellen appeared to lead him with answers about what occurred, and then it was announced he will be doing no more interviews.

        36. No autopsy of SP has been released. Neither has the time or cause of death, although the LVMPD did say a visual review of SP’s brain showed no abnormalities. A gunshot wound seems apparent from leaked photos, but it is unclear if it was to the head or gut.

        37. No security footage of him has been released either in the MB or in the Las Vegas area.

        38. No photos, known to be recent, such a driver’s license have been released.

        39. No 911 call from the MB to the LVMPD has been release.

        40. No ballistic report have been released

        41. One of his homes, in Reno NV, was broken into a week after the shooting. Authorities did not say what, if anything, was missing.

        42. SP also booked hotel rooms overlooking other outdoor concert venues, including the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and the “Life is Beautiful” festival in Las Vegas, although it is not known if he actually checked into the rooms.

        43. A laptop computer recovered from the Las Vegas hotel room of SP was missing its hard drive,

        If people were told all these things by the media, there’s no way they would believe the narrative they are being told of one lone gunman who seemed to just snap for no reason we know of.

I also suspect that you really can’t tell if gunfire is from a full auto or not. I did think that there were gunshots that sounded like handgun fire. Does anyone know if there has been any amateur analysis of the gunfire?

    10-08-17

    Steve Wynn said in an interview on Fox News that Paddock had “the most vanilla profile one could possibly imagine.”

    He says Paddock didn’t run up debts or have a gambling problem.

    Despite Mandalay Bay shooter Stephen Paddock’s history of high-stakes gambling, he had no known gambling debts, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday.

    Paddock sure had a lot to do in a short period of time before offing himself….

    Let’s see:

    1: Set up cameras
    2: Block door to stairs
    3: Use drill for something
    4: Smash two windows
    5: Shoot out his door
    6: Shoot out of window 1
    7: Shoot out of window 2
    8: Reload guns
    9: Shoot out window 1
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Remove hard drive from laptop; lock the door to the extra room; go back to window area; shoot himself.

    What did he do with the laptop hard drive? Eat it?

    All this in the space of what, 15 to 20 minutes? Sure.

    There was another shooter in that suite with him.

            No I am not saying that the guy on the left is Campos. What I am saying is the photo on the right is photo shopped. I suspect it was done in order to match up with the guy on the left that they were trying to peddle as being the same guy. Hence the ear is a dead give away, never mind the other irregularities in the same photo such as particular facial features not matching up. When looking at the larger version of the group photo, there is also an obvious clone stamp tool mark that was used under his right hand holding the plaque. Who ever did this is not very good at photo shop and it is obvious it was done by an amateur. You would figure with as big of a cover up like this that they could afford a professional graphic artist to do a better job of making it more convincing. Its as if they purposely did this in order for people to question it.

    That so far is the story.
    But in-between using the laptop to look at cameras I’ve got setup outside the doors, and shooting people and people walking into my room unannounced, I not only remove my laptop HD but I put the computer back together so no one knows what I’ve done.

    Then kill myself and manage to put the hard-drive in a secret place all while being dead, where no one can ever find it. And I’m alone in the room.

Or why they were pumping a CS gas into a sealed compound, said gas being known for two serious side effects; causing severe pneumonia in children, and a severe fire hazard – Wacco TX. Let us remember we went to Wacco to save the children.

    Here are all the possibilities:

    1. If Paddock removed the HDD himself, how was it disposed of? Where could it be? Someone who planned out a meticulous operation solo would not toss the hard drive out the window and hope it was never found. The FBI is lying to us.

    2. If Paddock didn’t remove the HDD himself, someone else must have. Paddock wasn’t working alone. The FBI is lying to us.

    3. The HDD was removed after the shooting by someone in the FBI or law enforcement offices (who broke in to his house after police searched it, when the police weren’t there?). The FBI is lying to us.

    4. The HDD was never present, and Paddock ran the machine off a secured USB thumb drive with a Linux partition. Where’s the thumb drive? See #1. The FBI is lying to us.

    5. The drive wasn’t removed, and it is in possession of law enforcement, but they don’t want to reveal its contents, or “accidentally” destroyed it. The FBI is lying to us.

    I can’t think of another option. That covers all possibilities, and it all leads to the same conclusion, every single time. Good thing the FBI is always 100% squeaky clean at all points in history, and has never been involved in say, just to make a hypothetical point you understand,

    a) maybe working with a political candidate and current President to fake intelligence on an opposing candidate to throw an election, and then paid for the intel they helped fake, and then took the intel that they faked to use to justify wiretaps on the candidate they faked the intel on, and then spend the next year investigating whether or not there really was anything that may have been going on that they didn’t fake, just to be doubly sure, you understand.

    b) Or hey, maybe illegally sell guns to cartel members to “track them” and then letting those “lost” guns be used to murder federal border guards.

    c) exonerating a sitting SecState who ran her own private email server to evade oversight, allegedly selling secrets to foreign gov’ts for campaign contributions, and exonerating her before they even interviewed her.

    d) Oh, oh, or maybe when investigating the hypothetical in part c), they let the subject’s aide have immunity and allow them to destroy their laptop drives.

    e) or, maybe in the 2nd worst mass shooting in U.S. history, they let a prime suspect who may have been directly involved go without charges, even after admitting he lied to the FBI for 10 months.

    I could continue until we run out of electrons to display these items on your screen, but I think we get the point.

    Is it possible, could Congress declare the FBI a rogue organization dedicated to the overthrow of the gov’t, and declare all FBI agents and employees enemies of the state and illegal, non-uniformed enemy combatants? If so, then could Congress issue Letters of Marque and Reprisal against the FBI?

It fits the narrative of the O admiration’s response to terrorist’s attacks and we know his views on Muslim terrorists. For me this was nothing more than an extension of O’s collusion with the terrorists (Iran Deal/ air dropping of US military munitions, equipment and vehicles to Islamic terrorists). Paddock was used for the patsy in this whole scheme. Did he become Muslim maybe yes, maybe no but they are staying the course and saying he did this.

  31. Here’s a theory that explains the hard drive going missing.

    Campos was the other shooter. Or The shooter.
    He got Paddock to help him set it all up. Then kills him all the while keeping everyone away, the other security guy, away from the door. He stayed down the hall and only saw Campos when he told him to hide or duck for cover.
    He takes the drive and hides it or passes it off to someone else and shoots his own leg.
    That could be the last shot heard by anyone, if Paddock was already dead.

    OK, so now we have a missing HDD, a brother into child pron, and no answers to any of the questions we already had. Lots of pieces, but still not making a coherent picture in our puzzle; very few of the pieces fit together, and we still don’t know even the outline of the fully-assembled puzzle picture.

    I’m more and more believing it is the Big Lie, purpose unknown (but probably a gun control push that has fizzled.)

    I put together some of the facets of this case that don’t make any sense to me. Maybe someone here can use this to explain a part of this mystery, but I can’t so far. It’s an attractive nuisance; it must make sense somehow, but it wrestles me to the ground every time I try!

    Here’s most of my scratching-my-head list:

    -Hundreds of shots fired, but no video showing flashes from Paddock’s room (or light from that room when the cops got in;)
    -Supposedly 200 rounds fired through door into hallway, but no pictures of bulletholes in hallway; only about 15-20 bulletholes in door picture- nobody on that floor reported hearing/seeing anything
    -Many weapons with bump stocks AND bipods, but bipod can’t be used with bump stock
    -Many weapons with bump stocks AND scopes, but scopes are useless when bump firing
    -Mountain of brass from hundreds of rounds fired is oddly missing
    -Way too many guns for one shooter, even if he’s crazy
    -Lots of videos taken by people at the event, but none show sparks/sounds from ricochets, or bulletholes anywhere, no bullets recovered that we’ve heard of
    -Small hammer shown in room pictures would not break thick window meant to withstand storms/accidents
    -Many videos of “victims” are not real but appear to be crisis actors, some are even laughing; medical props are unattached/inoperative, “hospital room” seems to be a set
    -“Official” story keeps changing, does not account for discrepancies, Sheriff not believable
    -Jose Campos seems to be two different guys; scripted softball appearance on Ellen, no others
    -“Lone shooter:” 64 year old Rambo, who’s out of shape, standing in glassless window 32 stories above the ground, machine-gunning crowd so far away he can’t see them individually, but he has no worries that he’ll fall out of the window or be swept out by wind, no shooting glasses or earmuffs but this old frail-looking Rambo doesn’t need them- you’re telling me that this really happened?

    Oh, and yeah he’s wearing soft slippers, too. What a guy!

    There’s a lot more things that don’t add up, don’t make sense or can’t be proven, but that’s off the top of my head. It doesn’t help that YouTube is removing videos that don’t support The Official Story as fast as they can; it lends support to the idea that something is going on here that we’re not supposed to know about.

    It is despicable that people actually did die to support this Big Lie. My condolences to the families of those that have passed away, and those that have had their lives shattered by this dreadful occurrence. Even for attendees, it would be impossible to tell whether someone falling down while the sound of gunfire is heard is acting or has actually been shot; I think some were actually shot, but that the event was embellished with crisis actors.

    I wish I thought that we’ll find out the true story, but I don’t think we ever will. It’ll be like Ruby Ridge or Waco; it’ll all be swept under the rug, those involved will be transferred/promoted/moved away, and no more will be said. After a while, anyone questioning this story will be told that “it’s been debunked” and “crazy conspiracy theory.” It’s really just the Big Lie!

      Supposedly 200 rounds fired through door into hallway, but no pictures of bulletholes in hallway; only about 15-20 bulletholes in door picture

      I’ll add to that one, Esky:

      No police photo of that door showing more than the “15-20” bulletholes

      Isn’t the only way we have that photo is because some unofficial photographer snuck in and snapped surreptitious photos?

      Isn’t the photog who snapped the Paddock-in-pool-of-blood photo also the same photog who snapped the one door photo we do have? In which the door in question is only partially visible, perhaps a quarter to a third of the entire door?

      If “200 rounds” is such a big element of the story that police accounts highlighted it, why no police photo of the other side of that door entrance, showing the entire door?

      Simple answer: no police photos have been released.

      Which begs the question: why not?

      Simple answer: because investigation is not yet complete.

      Those may be the correct answers and appropriate to the situation, but they leave the public in the dark – no wonder there are conspiracy theories.

      Would be much much simpler and straightforward if the police account is “over 200 shots fired down the hall” and it’s such a big deal, then at press conference: “And here’s a photo of the door, see? It’s shot to sh1t.”

    More to the point, if he wanted the disk unreadable, he had a freaking arsenal with him in the room, and could have just put a round or two through the computer and HD. He wouldn’t stop and remove the drive and, what? Flush it down the toilet? I don’t think it would go down. Throw it out the broken window? I expect they’ve combed the ground around there already. Which leaves one to speculate that someone else in the room removed the HD and left with it. Someone that perhaps also shot Paddock? Of course, LE has had plenty of time to remove the drive, but why would they then feel the need to provide this stupid story, they could just scrub it and replace it, and no one would be any the wiser.

      True @ he had a freaking arsenal with him in the room to blow the laptop to smithereens!

      Didn’t happen because planners took the hard drive to check if the shooter/patsy reported his role to anyone. If so, those people are dead now.

    “Settled his debts right before” could mean he simply kept current, all of the time. That’s undoubtedly the case, since he expected to receive good treatment and had a reputation as a “regular”. Otherwise, we’d have heard about it by now.

    Does anyone ever recall a closeup wound/final photo of the deceased being released like this?

    Ellen put 90% of the words in his mouth, and forgot to pass him a Kleenex at the end. He wasn’t even on the ball enough to accept the Kleenex, to keep the “distraught” act going.

    Driving to Mexico puts a whole new spin on his involvement. Think how bizarre that is – he knows he’s a crucial witness, yet he has some little “business” he must take care of at that very moment?

    Maybe this incident inspired PT to release the JFK files.

    If no one can find such hard drive, what evidence suggests that “Paddock is believed to have removed the hard drive before fatally shooting himself”? Read between the lines people. If the AP source tells us this much info, that means they are refusing to divulge what really happened.

    Here is a simple facial analysis video done on images of Campos from social media and the union award ceremony, then two images from the Ellen interview. There may be multiple people posing as Jose Campos, which would not be surprising since the Ellen show was totally controlled and scripted by MGM.

    I will say the whole child porn stuff may be a deep state technique of control. I know that there have been instances of those in the cross hairs of the govt may get spurious email to which child porn is furtively downloaded.

    Something sticks in Denmark but it’s too early. I think we will need time.

    I may be thick headed, since I don’t understand:

    Why would SP remove the HD at all??

    That is the question. He had nothing to lose by WHATEVER would be found on it.

    To me, this ‘removed’ HD info proves he wasn’t alone, and I personally believe he didn’t shoot alone, if he indeed shot at all. Do we have forensic proof?? Fingerprints, residue, whatever on his hands?

    I vote he was an unwilling, uninformed of the real story behind this mess, patsy. An ez patsy for whoever DID steal the HD and shoot and break out windows, etc etc.

    Good Lord, what is the matter with people??

    There is absolutely zero evidence for that.
    Give us another bit of assumption as evidence , please.

    Well, if Paddock himself actually removed the hard drive, it is pretty likely that he did it before he killed himself. On that, anyway, most of us can agree.
