The noise vibrated like a drill, coming from inside a corner hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. At that moment, security guard Jesus Campos was on the floor to check a blocked fire escape door, and he heard that strange sound. Unbeknownst to him, it wasn’t drilling, but the rattle of a gun.
Campos said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in an episode airing Wednesday “As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire. And at first I took cover, I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood,” .

Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock

Stephen Paddock’s murderous sniper attack on a concert crowd in Las Vegas in which he killed 28 people and wounded nearly 500 will occupy a prominent place in the annals of horror.

Yet weeks after the attack, carried out from a suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, authorities apparently have not determined his motive.

“What would drive somebody that is so methodical and structured in life to go insane in a very structured and methodical way?” said

No Abnormalities Have Been Found in the Las Vegas Shooter’s Brain: Report

As of Tuesday, an autopsy had not found any abnormalities in Stephen Paddock‘s brain when he opened fire on a crowd at a Las Vegas music festival earlier this month, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more, an official told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the paper in a Tuesday interview that he didn’t have any information about Paddock’s toxicology results, but that the autopsy was underway.

Lombardo said Paddock’s motive in the mass shooting remained unclear, despite extensive investigation including contact with his entire “family tree.”

“We may never know,” Lombardo said. “All those things that you would expect to find, we have not found.”

Paddock’s girlfriend, who has been cooperating with authorities, told them she had no concerns about his mental health, according to the Review-Journal.

Authorities have said that on

Cult theory emerges following Las Vegas massacre

The gambling addict, who was the sole perpetrator of the savage October 1 massacre, had few social and family connections, apart from his girlfriend, Marylou Danley, who told FBI investigators she had no idea what he was planning. 

According to experts, the lonely 64-year-old was a prime target for a cult which possibly led him to meticulously plan the shootings from the 32nd floor of The Mandalay Bay Hotel in Vegas, which killed 59 people and injured 500 more.

Las Vegas Shooting: Expert on Stephen Paddock’s Motive – People

Nearly two weeks later, investigators have yet to announce a potential motive behind the Las Vegas massacre, which killed 58 concertgoers and left hundreds more wounded. It may never be known what drove Stephen Paddock to shoot innocent people enjoying a country music festival from 32 stories up. But criminal profiler John Kelly tells PEOPLE he believes Paddock was born a killer.

“What would drive somebody that is so methodical and structured in life to go insane in a very structured and methodical way?” Kelly, who acknowledges he never met the shooter, wonders. “Paddock was a pathological gambler, psychopath and a sociopath. He was predisposed from birth and childhood to harbor extreme internalized shame, low self-esteem, depression, and aggressive anger.”

Kelly adds: “This was exacerbated with pathological gambling, Valium and alcohol that caused the perfect storm for mass murder: a delusional,

Vegas Shooting Timeline Gets Another Update

More than a week after the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, investigators are still stumped about what led high-stakes gambler Paddock to carry out his horrific attack.

New details released earlier this week indicate Paddock shot hotel security guard Jesus Campos six minutes before he shot at the crowd – contradicting an earlier statement that he was wounded after the mass shooting began. Authorities also said that after Paddock shot at Campos through the door of his room on the 32nd floor, the gunman didn’t fire any more shots into the crowd. “It was kind of relentless”. “He manually called down and he used his radio to call”.

However, MGM Resorts International, owner of the Mandalay Bay, has disputed the revised timeline.

MGM Resorts International spokeswoman Debra DeShong said the company believes “what is now being expressed may not be accurate”.
