Sheriff says a total of 851 people injured in Strip mass shooting

Las Vegas Massacre Survivor Demands Answers

During Friday's Las Vegas police briefing on the attack, the first since October when Paddock opened fire on a concert from his hotel perch across the street killing 58 people, authorities revealed the gunman had researched Grant Park and at least two Chicago music events.

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

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo announced the release Friday, telling reporters that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was "going against normal protocols" by issuing the report, due to public interest in the case.

"This report won't answer every question, or even the biggest question, as to why he did what he did".

Cops revealed that they still had NOT identified any motive into the senseless slaughter on October 1 past year - the deadliest mass shooting in USA history.

Paddock ultimately opened fire at the country music festival and killed 58 people.

Police have been unable to find a missing hard drive from Paddock's computer.

The lack of information on the case has led to wild speculation, including the theory pushed Thursday by a Republican congressman that ISIS was behind the shooting.

Unlike numerous other mass killers who have attacked churches, nightclubs, workplaces, schools and other public spaces across the country - and in many places left racist screeds or videotaped rants - Paddock apparently left no explanation for his attack. Paddock shot himself in the mouth and died after carrying out the attack and the question of motive also remains open. The court documents, which detail the early days of the investigation, describe Paddock as spending significant time amassing weapons and ammunition while seeking "to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation".

The Las Vegas Journal notes that Stephen Paddock's brain tissue still awaits a neuropathological examination at Stanford University School of Medicine, where researchers will look for possible causes into the gunman's reported erratic behavior.

The couple found themselves in the midst of one of the deadliest mass shooting events in the history of the United States in October past year when they made a weekend trip to the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas. On one of the computers, investigators found hundreds of photos of child pornography.

Danley, his girlfriend, told investigators that during their visit she "observed Paddock constantly looking out the windows of the room that overlooked the venue".

The doctor offered him antidepressants, but Paddock accepted only a prescription for anxiety medication.

Investigators also concluded that Paddock was not facing financial hardship at the time of the shooting.

Locations in the Boston area - and of course Las Vegas - were also his focus. He had paid off all his gambling debts before the shooting.

Investigators and local police held their first press conference in over three months on Friday, updating the public on the escalating questions and freaky theories surrounding Stephen Paddock's murderous rampage on the Las Vegas Strip.

In their report, police released never-before-seen photos from inside the hotel suite, including one shot through a broken window, showing the concert venue still littered with personal belongings left when thousands ran to escape the hail of bullets raining from above.
