The police found Paddock in a dorm. The television footage showed an older person this morning being transferred to the police van in a wheelchair. According to the complaint, Bruce Douglas Paddock is charged with 20 crimes related to the possession of child pornography. Police found Mñás of 600 pornographic images of children and young people in a business in the Paddock-related Sun Valley town. The suspect had been evicted from that place and looked for him ever since.
Bruce Paddock, 58 years old, is the brother of Stephen Paddock, 64, author of the largest shootout in American history. On the weekend of October 1st, Paddock was himself in a luxury suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, in the Las Vegas Tourist Center, with 23 automatic weapons. From the 32 floor window, he fired semi-automatic bursts against thousands of people attending an open-air concert across the street. Apart from the 58 dead, almost 500 people were injured. The police found Paddock dead.
Josh Rubenstein, an LAPD spokesman, told Los Angeles Times that both investigations are unrelated. "There's no connection," he said.
The investigators from Las Vegas and the FBI have since combed the entire life of Paddock in search of a motive for the massacre. They haven't found him. The carnage is still a great mystery. It is not known why Paddock began to accumulate weapons about 11 months ago or why he decided to use them against that concert. No one in his entourage, nor the woman who lived with him, seems to know anything.
Bruce Paddock did not talk to the media at the time. Yes it did Eric Paddock, another one of the brothers, who from the house where he lives with his mother in Florida, declared himself baffled by what happened and assured that nothing in Stephen Paddock's life made him think he could do something like that. After having several jobs in his life, Paddock had retired and lived as a professional player.
The Paddock family are five brothers in all. The father was a bank robber who was on the FBI's most wanted list in the 60 years after he escaped prison.
