Nearly 2 weeks after the Las Vegas Shooting, which has been called the “deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history,” there are still a number of unanswered questions, and the answers law enforcement have provided have only served to complicate the situation and add new conflict to the narrative.

Here are 7 major questions from the shooting that need to be addressed:

1. Why is there no footage of Stephen Paddock in the casino?

The suspected shooter was staying at one of the most popular resorts in Las Vegas—everything is recorded by surveillance cameras, and the fact that absolutely no surveillance footage has been released showing Paddock in the days before the shooting is insane.

In fact, less than 24 hours after the shooting occurred, NBC News published a story featuring various photos from security cameras that appeared to show Paddock at a casino in the Cosmopolitan Hotel, and then in an Emergency room after he fell in 2011. It took just hours to find security footage of Paddock from 6 years ago, but it has been nearly 2 weeks, and the footage from 2 days before the shooting still has not been released?

2. What was Paddock’s motive for the horrific act?

Stephen Paddock’s profile was the opposite of the typical mass shooter. He appeared to be living a rich, retired life in which he regularly visited Las Vegas casinos with his girlfriend. While ISIS was quick to claim responsibility for the attack, both the FBI and the Paddock’s brother have claimed he had no attachment to any terrorist group, organization or religion.

So what was it that motivated Paddock—who had no military experience, and no reputation for loving guns—to stockpile dozens of firearms, and to plan out such a deadly attack?

Surely, if the FBI had evidence linking Paddock to a far-right or far-left extremist group, it would have been released by now. However, several media outlets have highlighted one quote from a Las Vegas prostitute that ties Paddock to one group—a growing group of people who question the U.S. government.

“The 27-year-old woman said Paddock, 64, would often rant about conspiracy theories including how 9/11 was orchestrated by the US government.”
