16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That Mainstream Media Doesn't Want To Talk About

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas. 

As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance.  But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself.  We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him. 

But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging.

The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…

#1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?

#2 Were there additional shooters?  A taxi driver reportedly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window.  A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on.  And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

#3 Why were law enforcement authorities discussing “another suspect on the fourth floor”, and why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this?

#4 As Jon Rappoport has pointed out, it would have been impossible for Stephen Paddock to kill and wound 573 people in less than five minutes of shooting with the kinds of weapons that he is alleged to have used.  So why won’t law enforcement authorities acknowledge this fact?

#5 How in the world did Paddock get 42 guns and “several thousand rounds of ammo” into his hotel room without anyone noticing?

#6 How did someone with “no military background” and that wasn’t a “gun guy at all” operate such advanced weapons?  Because what we are being told by the mainstream media just doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.  I really like how Natural News made this point…

Far from what the firearms-illiterate media claims, these are not systems that any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina. It is physically impossible for a guy like Stephen Paddock to operate such a system in the sustained, effective manner that we witnessed, especially when shooting from an elevated position which throws off all the ranging of the weapon system.


Far from being a Navy Seal, Stephen Paddock is a retired accountant senior citizen with a gambling problem and a flabby physique. The only way he could have carried out this shooting is if he were transformed into a human superweapon through a magic wand. I’m calling this “Mission IMPOSSIBLE” because of the physical impossibility of a retired, untrained senior citizen pulling this off.

#7 Why was one woman telling people in the crowd that they were all going to die 45 minutes before the attack?

#8 Why did it take law enforcement authorities 72 minutes to get into Stephen Paddock’s hotel room?

#9 Why did Paddock wire $100,000 to the Philippines last week?

#10 Why was Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in the Philippines when the attack took place?  Did she know what was about to happen?

#11 Was Paddock on antidepressants like so many other mass killers in the past have been?

#12 Why was ISIS so eager to take responsibility for this attack, and why was the FBI so quick to dismiss that connection?

#13 Apparently Paddock had earned millions of dollars “through real estate deals”.  If he was so wealthy, why would he all of a sudden snap like that?

#14 Why did he move so frequently?  It is being reported that Paddock had 27 different residences during his adult life.

#15 Why were nearly all of the exits out of the concert venue completely blocked?…

In essence, the concert trapped the people, preventing them from escaping, and denying them the ability to seek cover. From there, sustained, full-auto gunfire is almost impossible to survive.


From Fox News, a caller named Russell Bleck, who survived the shooting, said live on air, “There were ten-foot walls blocking us in. We couldn’t escape. It was just a massacre. We had nowhere to go.”

#16 Why was a country music festival chosen as the target?  Was the goal to kill as many Trump supporters and other conservatives as possible?  And is there evidence that Stephen Paddock was connected to Antifa in any way?

At first I thought that this was a fairly straightforward story too, but the more I have dug into it the more complex things have become.

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that Stephen Paddock definitely did not act alone.  That means that the others involved in the shooting are still out there, and they must be brought to justice.  Let us never forget what these extremely wicked individuals did to innocent civilians such as 27-year-old Tina Frost

A 27-year-old woman has lost her right eye after a bullet ripped through her face during the Las Vegas concert massacre.


Tina Frost remains in a coma in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove the bullet that became lodged in her eye when a gunman opened fire on the crowd of country music fans on Sunday night.


Frost, who is originally from Maryland but moved to California several years ago, is expected to remain in the coma for a week.

Whoever did this is going to pay greatly.  Yes, I do believe that Stephen Paddock was involved.  But he did not act alone, and the mainstream media is doing the public a great disservice by ignoring all of the evidence that this was not just a “lone wolf” operation.

Are you writing this nonsense from Vladivostok?

Idaho potato head's picture

You cannot hold sustained bursts as were heard with a bump gun let alone even an M16. This was more like a military/CIA hit than a lone shooter with an "assault rifle".

Mike Masr's picture

YOUTUBE took down the video featured here on ZH of second shooter on 4th floor. 


On today's news there is NO mention of it. Total silence.

What's up with that?


JimJones's picture

You mean the flashing light? Um yeah, doesn't coincide with the sounds and continues on after firing has stopped. YouTube probably took the video down so as not to influence more gullible rubes into believing nonsense.

Rapunzal's picture

No problem with a false flag planned in advance the whole window replacement in less than 5 mins. Just another government shill, aren't you.

JimJones's picture

You false flaggers are the equivalent of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". 

equity_momo's picture

Yep im sure thats why youtube removed that video you fucking mong.

DaveThomas's picture

I agree, 4th floor flash seems unlikely proof of multiple shooters.
It does however present an excellent strawman argument, possibly lobbed up for you to take a swing at?

How about this though:

At the very beginning of the video you can hear gunfire very close, with a possible echo.

Then moments later, the sound of far off gunfire- with no echo, and no preceding close gunfire, followed several moments later by close gunfire once again.

:4 seconds close sound of gunfire with possible echo.

:45-:50 seconds distant sound of gunfire, no echo, no preceding close gunfire.

1:07-1:21 sound of close gunfire again.

1:42 sound of distant gunfire again.


I will wait while you formulate a concise, logical rebuttal.

Bay of Pigs's picture

Dave, you'll be waiting a long time to get logic and critical thinking from some of these MSM kool aid drinkers who trust everything said to them by CNN.

And btw, I think you are entirely correct on this. It wasn't just muzzle flashes that show discrepancies on this lone wolf narrative. The sound gives it away big time.

DaveThomas's picture

I agree, no response is likely.

Obvious Shills are obvious.

Thanks for taking the time to check out the video,
I tend to build my soapbox's with the strongest planks I can find. It is nice to see someone who appreciates that kind of craftsmanship, and who took the time to actually inspect said foundations...


GassedUpOldMan's picture

Better question:
Why do you think someone from the fourth floor could hit people at the festival? They wouldn't have the required elevation.

Rapunzal's picture

You have no clue of shooting. He actually was in a better position when you fire a suppressing fire. More horizontal, you have more victims the bullets will hit people most likely. A suppressing fire from a high elevation most of the bullets hit the ground and its over.

FoggyWorld's picture

No. 11 has a Daily Mail answer.  Paddock apparently was given an Rx for fifty 10 mg Valium tabs several weeks ago by a physician who is not willing to discuss it.

Someone on valium does not have to coordination to do this.

Yawn, another conspiritard.

thatthingcanfly's picture

Thank you. This rush to conspiracy theory is really starting to annoy me here on ZH. Didn't used to be like this.

tmosley's picture

Only liberals don't think that every single event that happens is part of some vast conspiracy?

Bay of Pigs's picture

Let's review then. JFK, Gulf of Tonkin, 9/11, Iraq WMD's, Sandy Hook, Boston Bombing, just for starters.

Some rather big false flag events shaping the US and the world, wouldn't you say?

tmosley's picture

Ok, so that means that EVERY event is a conspiracy?

There was a murder-suicide in my hometown last week. Was that a conspiracy?

Get real. You have to prove conspiracies on a case by case basis, and jumping to that conclusion without solid evidence just makes you look like a lunatic.

JimJones's picture

ZeroHedge has been going downhill for years now. Their doom and gloom predictions have mostly not come true so they needed to expand their reader base to keep the money flowing. Started stealing thunder from Alex Jones.

Philo Beddoe's picture

Not so fast. I question everything. Even conspiracy theories. Especially conspiracy theories. 

Answer me this. 

20,000 smart phones near this event. Give or take 1000 or 5000. 

I do not want to see blood and guts. However, I find it odd that there is very little in the way of video/posts/streams of victims. FFS. People have this surveillance state gear turned on 24/7 and post everything from their cat taking a shit to their nails getting done. 

It could be I am way off base and everybody near the event decided to become discreet and protect a private hell from public eyes for a change. 



Octagon's picture

I can see your point, but......

If some crazy person is shooting at me with a machine gun i'm probably not going to be focused on my phone.

But it is surprising so little footage. Even security cams.

Philo Beddoe's picture

Agreed, Somebody shooting near me leads to me doing my best middle aged white guy running fast gig. Cant reach for the smart phone..cause I do not fucking have one. However, somebody would be there to capture the moment in this day in age. Again, I could be missing something. 

Edit. Yep, there is something on liveleak now. Looks convincing. Enough for me to shut the fuck up until promted otherwise. 

greenskeeper carl's picture

You and I may be smart enough to move our asses out of there, quickly. Its basic instinct. But todays younger people's survival instinct seems to have been repaced with the instinct to pull out a phone and record it.

Troglodyte Erudite's picture


live leak with a guy walking around recording all the dead and wounded. Caution if you have a weak stomach.

sauldaddy's picture

I guarantee you the FBI bitches wiped everybody's cell phone of pictures and videos based off the GEO Location .

Philo Beddoe's picture

OK. Wouldn't at least a handfull of people be claiming...what the fuck happened to my pictures/videos? 

Again, I could be missing something. 

Everybodys All American's picture

I saw a video yesterday of the aftermath and the victims were strewn along with blood everywhere. I dont think you have to question the outcome from what I saw. If I can find the video link I will post it.

Joe A's picture

Where is the blood? What about this (first video)?


Warning, rather graphic. I saw it once and don't want to see it again.

Philo Beddoe's picture

See edit above in my comment. 

I did not bother watching your clip. I trust you. 

Just saw something on liveleak as well. 

I am shutting the fuck up until prompted otherwise. 

Joe A's picture

The guy that made this film on his phone was not discreet at all. Posing to be somebody trying to help, he just comes in with his phone, pretend to look for a pulse and then takes close up shots of dead and wounded people. He is acting all important but he just wanted to score. It made me regret watching it. It was filmed btw. after the shooting, not during. I think many people opted to not film and instead run for their lives. Wise choice.

Philo Beddoe's picture

Looks that way, Joe. 

I watched about a minute or so of the liveleak one. Sounds the same as yours (probably the same vid). 

Looks real (real enough). I feel shitty for the vics and their families. I would feel a lot better if it was all fake but it looks like that is not the case here. 

Joe A's picture

It is horrible, Philo, beyond imagination. I can stand seeing dead bodies and blood, whether in real life or on these kinds of movies but the sight of lifeless eyes is really heart wrenching. These people came to have a good time and either ended up dead or maimed and scarred for life.

Time for Titus's picture

Why was there no depiction of even one serious wound? There was blood and talk of a head wound, but no actual carnage. 

The video was not convincing to me, other than the fact that hundreds or more would have had to be involved to fake the entire scene.

Yes, you should hide under your mushroom and believe everything you’re told.

It was all real Goyim, now let us take your guns to usher in Communism err I mean to protect you !!

Please, "these are not the droids you are looking for, move along"

It is okay folks, it really comes down to who are you going to trust.

"Full Faith and Credit"

same as it ever was...

MaxThrust's picture

I still cannot believe a fellow like Steve Paddock with money and every reason to live would do this. I still think he was just a patsy. Very convenient he is dead dont you think?

ejmoosa's picture

I wrestled with that.  But what if you have a rich liberal, who hates that nothing is getting done with gun control?

And then you blame the conservatives who helped elect Trump?  

So, he decides to make a first strike against those that are holding up his agenda.

Not beyond the realm of possibilities.

Idaho potato head's picture

Just observe the Clintons will to survive, and not be sacrificed. Unless this guy flipped his wig in reality why would he sacrifice himself either to life in prison or death?

chestergimli's picture

Why has no one questioned his girlfriends ex-Geary Manley. He was a sharpshooter or exmarine or something other. Looks to me like Paddock was groomed from the very beginning.

Oldrepublic's picture

Some new information that I came across. Can not verify .

Marilou was an elected official in the Philippines in the 70s

Worked with a US funded NGO which sought to overhrow Pres. Marcos

After death of first Australian husband got a visa to US, got a character reference from a US spook.

Married a guy in Arkansas for 20 years. That guy was ultra leftist.

Her daughter, either from her Ist or 2nd marriage is now married to

The son of a biotech billionaire.

lester1's picture

Fake news liberal media are playing dumb and claim we don't have a motive yet.. Clearly he was radicalized. The question is was it by ISIS or Antifa?? This shit was pre planned.


That Filipino Muslim girlfriend knows the truth.. She was wired $100,00 dollars without setting off red flags at the FBI ??

FoggyWorld's picture

And she is back in Los Angeles and most likely with the FBI.

mc888's picture

Think so? I'm tending toward she let Paddock use her card to book the room and track his location while she let the Company into the house to plant the 'evidence'.

Handful of Dust's picture

The MSM is struggling to avoid talking about all the antifa booklets in his house and/or his conversion to muzlimism before this slaughter.

chestergimli's picture

Maybe all of those books were his girlfrienfd's.
