'Suicide Note' Seen In Vegas Shooter's Hotel Room Finally Explained

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Aaron Nelson via TheAntiMedia.org,

A mysterious piece of paper discovered last week, when photos from the Las Vegas gunman’s hotel room were leaked to the media, is now back in the news cycle. The pictures were published by numerous news outlets and shared by millions of people on social media.

At the time the photos were published by the Daily Mail, police had not mentioned if Paddock left behind a note in his hotel room. Nevada Sheriff Joe Lombardo said police were investigating who leaked the crime scene photos.

In one photo in particular, a white piece of paper or notepad on a side table next to a chair is visible, which caused some to speculate that it may have been a suicide note. Soon after the photos were leaked, Twitter was abuzz with chatter referencing the paper, with people spreading cover-up conspiracies and rumors that it was a suicide note.

On Thursday, investigators revealed that the note in the photo was not, in fact, a suicide note but neglected to provide further details about the purpose of the note.

In their first in-depth interview, which will air on CBS Sunday evening, the officers who stormed Stephen Paddock’s hotel room revealed new details to 60 Minutes that finally explain what was written on the mysterious note.

Members of the law enforcement team who were the first to enter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room.

“I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd,” said Officer Dave Newton from the Las Vegas Police in a preview clip of Sunday’s report.

 

“So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”

Paddock’s note was clearly not a suicide letter.

Rather, it detailed bullet trajectory and included calculations about where he needed to aim his weapons to maximize accuracy and optimize his kill rate.

Investigators have also been looking for a ‘mystery woman’ who was seen with Stephen Paddock in the days leading up to the Las Vegas shooting.

According to ABC News, the ‘mystery woman’ everyone on the internet was talking about has been identified. While officials did not reveal the woman’s name, they did tell reporters she was a prostitute. Police are still investigating whether or not Paddock acted alone. They believe he may have had an accomplice based on the elaborate planning needed to undertake such a massacre and the fact that some ammunition was purchased under someone else’s name.

As ABC reported Friday evening:

“Meantime, investigators are still trying to figure out whether Paddock acted alone. Authorities believe he may have had an accomplice, based on the elaborate planning on Sunday night’s rampage.

 

Officials also believe he had help because of the amount of guns in his hotel room, and because some of the ammo was bought under someone else’s name.”

Though more details are being released each day, Paddock’s motives remain unclear.

False flag is a false flag is a false flag or was it a hoax ? That is the question people with an IQ above 85 asking themselves. Man but it's unbelievable how they bend backwards to sell us the BS and all just to sell us more body scanners ? The parasitic and child abusing elites are desperate to make the extra buck before the next economic collapse.

Unless normal police investigation was not undertaken, there will be crime scene photos that should show blood trails and blood pools. The kill area should coordinate with the alleged position of the shooter. Bullets that entered the ground should show the trajectory and direction that the bullet traveled.

If none of this evidence is available, turn to the available evidence. Do the videos of the people crouching and running show any one who is hit? Do you hear voices crying out, “I’ve been hit, help me!”? If not, why not? 573 casualties is a large number.

Consult medics on how the wounded are handled and compare what you learn with this video that purports to be a video of the wounded brought to a hospital. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ki__BdeRIjc Note the absence of medics and medical personnel. Note the incorrect ways that the alleged injured are being carried by people in street clothes who clearly are not professionals. Note the absence of blood. None on the stretchers, none on the victims, none on the people carrying the victims, none on the hospital floor. No signs of trauma.

Ask yourself how the injured came into the hands of concert goers who had fled the scene. Did concert goers return to the scene in order to recover the wounded? Why would they take this risk or be allowed to? It was an hour before police made it to the hotel room from which the shooting allegedly took place? Why would police, ambulances, medical personnel permit untrained people to handle the wounded?

Las Vegas Shooting Must Involve Spooks

Before the Las Vegas shooting, for each such large outdoor gathering around the world in the last 50 years, there must have been about 100 million individuals who, with little skill and resources, could have fired hundreds of bullets into the crowd from a great distance, and yet, it never happened. If there were one billion such events, then that means out of 100 quadrillion such opportunities … it never happened. In other words, people just don’t do that. Even terrorists just don’t do that. Clearly, there is less than a 1% chance this happened without spooks involved, which means there is greater than a 99% chance that spooks were involved.

One of the thousands of possibilities is that a spook doctor told him that he only had 6 months to live, and then his handler gave him the idea and materials to be a hero of the Democrats by taking out some Trump supporters using every kind of gun they want to ban. Nah, he still wouldn’t have done it. It is more likely they just put him and the guns in the room, killed him, and then did the job themselves.

Follow the money.  But will people care a year or two from now when this all happens?

beemasters's picture

I'm still inclined to believe he didn't kill himself, but murdered by those who were really behind the shooting.

If you were deranged or filled with rage, you wouldn't stop at shooting a crowd at a distance. You would most likely move down to the casino/lobby and continue your killing spree.
This was quite obviously done by someone (people) who didn't want to get caught and with no plan to commit suicide.

Mementoil's picture

a true "false flag attack" would not be so mysterious.
The people organizing it would make sure the patsy had a plausible motive, and fitted the profile of a deranged lone wolf shooter.
The fact that there are so many question marks regarding this event proves, IMO, that it WAS NOT a false flag.

beemasters's picture

LOL. So you believe 9/11 wasn't a false flag because there were too many inconsistencies and explainable events...And all crimes where there are "no question marks" are indeed false flags??? Please explain the logic.

Faustus's picture

There are indeed many inconsistencies regarding 9/11 but it finally sent a clear (fake) message: "we must wage a war against Afghanistan". What is the message of the Las Vegas shooting?

Sphira's picture

First they turn people off to guns ...then they come for them. Among a myriad; a plethora of other probable benefits to the narcissistic. It should be clear enough all these "happenings" have a real negative economic result for entertainment in particular, and it chills the tendency for people to freely assemble; as well as freely express. Of course it is obviously a political posturing field day. Just a few points for consideration.

just google "high incident project" and see what comes up. I was skeptical at first but more and more this is looking like another false flag event.

His handler probably would not have further explained to him that the event itself would not get guns banned, but that the conflict resulting when Trump supporters fought back ... would be used to justify why the people can't be trusted with guns.

We need security scanners everywhere, and give us your guns to be safe from terrorists. Go ahead, ask me a hard one.

Give Me Some Truth's picture

We have a legal pad with a line drawn down the center of the page.

On the left side of the page we have a list of evidentiary items indicating that Paddock did the crime.

On the right hand column we have a list of evidence indicating he did not (that someone else did it or that he had help).

Which side of the page has more more items? 

(I could do such a list but it would take me an hour, such is the moutain of evidence already known that would go on the left-hand side).

I'm curious. Those who are sure this was a conspiracy and that Paddock was a Patsy or was just one of several shooters. Do you think there's any evidence pointing to Paddock's guilt? For example, do you think he bought all the weapons or not? Do you think he paid for the room? Do you think that was his dead body found in the room? In your estimation, all three of these truths/facts indicate that Paddock could NOT have been the killer? These things show that he should NOT be considered a suspect? If you were heading up the investigation, would you consider him a suspect and at least consider the possibility he did this?

dumluk's picture

You mean you havent seen the pics of Paddock playing cards in an Atlantic City casino sitting next to his asian girlfriend?  Where you been? Wasting time getting briefed in an FBI outhouse?

JSBach1's picture

For a person who claims to want some truth you inconspicuously and deliberately seem to avoid some inconvenient factors... For a guy who purportes to give impartial analysis, you seem to avoid the unsavory indications that there is EVIDENCE that multiple shooters are a plausible explaination to said events. WILL YOU PROVIDE some analysis on video of the cab driver sound? Otherwise you have no standing.

Give Me Some Truth's picture

If Paddock is in fact innocent can't his heirs sue those who have defamed his name and falsely accused him? If it's so obvious he didn't do this, their case would be easy to prove.

Give Me Some Truth's picture

Someone answer these two questions:

1) Who shot the security guard?

2) After this person(s) shot the security guard, did he/they then escape out the door past the wounded security guard (who, for some bizarre reason, failed to mention this fact to anyone)?

 

political_proxy's picture

One shot, one hit through the door?

If one shot, why so low and why only one? What part of the leg, dangerous place or in the muscle, less deadly area?
The guy was shot yet waited there how long for the cops - must not have had a radio to call for help, yet he notified the cops what room.
Follow this guy and his  (new) money.

Why aren’t they investigating the woman who told the crowd they were all going to die? They have a witness who heard it and saw the woman escorted out of the area.

ZeroLounger's picture

I'm gonna try to squeeze this in early, 'cause I think it's relevant:

Why would this smart, organized, well-planned guy wait until either just before, or during, the execution of his plan to calculate windage and elevation for his weapons?

It doesn't make any sense.  He's gonna pull out a pad, on a table in the middle of the room, and recall from memory the algorithms necessary to sight his rifles for accuracy during the few intense moments of the actual execution?

These pictures were leaked, and the cops DO NOT want us to know what's on that paper. Otherwise, there'd be a picture of it. NO PICTURE!  WHY? HIDING SOMETHING!

 

Edit:  Besides, accuracy wasn't required here.  Bump-fire weapons fired downward into a crowd of 22,000.....like shooting fish in a barrel. No, those aren't calculations on that notepad. They seem REALLY anxious to alleviate any attention towards it.  Just my two cents.

dumluk's picture

Right on bro......yes its relevant........and a very solid two cents it is......

I did some calculations to figure out how accurate he had to be in his firing to do the damage he did. My hunches were proven accurate.

He had the "drop" figured out - so let's get that out of the picture. He was on the 32nd floor, so let's say his elevation was 350 feet, allowing for high ceilings in lobby etc. The concert grounds were about 500 feet x 500 feet, and the nearer side was about 1000 feet from the base of the tower. We can now use trignometry to figure out the rest.

If he fired at an angle of 11.6 degrees below horizontal, he'd hit the farthest edge of the grounds. If he fired at 19.3 degrees below horizontal, he would hit the near side. So he had a range of 7. 7degrees, and he would be hitting the populated area. Remember, he wasn't trying to take out a particular person - anywhere in the concert grounds would work.

A range of 7.7 degrees in firing angle is equivalent to hitting a 45 foot diameter target from 100 yards away. Most of us could do this with our eyes closed. Hence the loss of accuracy with the bump-stocks was of no significance.

Disposable because he knew too much, and was not a part of their future plans is my guess. Probably cost a pretty penny to keep him on the payroll and keep quiet. The organization is realizing that with the way things turned out, funding has been severely hampered and criminal charges are right around the corner. Everyone who is involved with these operations must be thinking, " am I next?" The charger left in his room is of particuler interest because not everyone has access to such a devise, in fact only certain agencies do.

Possibly.

More likely prescription drugs that make some people murder/suicide. Like this asshole.

beemasters's picture

Possibly...
More likely prescription drugs that make some people easier to be blamed for murder/suicide.

As someone here had mentioned, since he was a pilot (and assumed "suicidal"), he could have easily flown into a packed crowd; they'd have very little chance of escaping the crash; hundreds would have died. Why choose 23 guns and for only 1 person??? You can sweep it all under the label of "insanity", but this wasn't a usual impromptu act of an insane individual. It was a long planning which involved sending his girlfriend away overseas and transferring $100k to her.

Re: The "handlers" killed Paddock and then "did the job themselves."

How?

Someone shot the security guard who was at Paddock's hotel room door. After the security guard was shot in the leg, the security guard did not leave the scene(he called superiors and told them he knew where the shooting was coming from. He then waited for police to arrive). If Paddock had already been killed and the "handlers" did all the killing, they must have also shot the security guard, right? SO: How did they get out of the room without being detected by the security guard they had just wounded?

Every theory/belief put forth here is "possible" I guess, but every one was is incredibly farfetched.

Yog Soggoth's picture

That does not explain the possibility of a second shooter doing the actual shooting. If he thought it was not a regular security guard, but in fact a stooge in the operation he would have fired in self defence. It is also likely that this security guard was in on the entire thing, which would explain why it took 70 minutes for the police to get into the room. They throw a bunch of guns in the room, stage it, and leave, after shooting Paddock of course. Scenario (2) As the real shooters leave, they shoot the security guy in the leg and say "sorry about the flesh wound, but you will get paid for it and live as long as we make it out of here." Don't call down for another 20 minutes.

Re: The security guard is "in on" the operation too....

Well at least you offered some theories that attempt to answer my two simple questions. I don't think your theories would hold up to any prosecutor scrutiny though. Basically, the security guard is lying and "in on it."

Another question: If he was "in on it" why did he even go to the hotel room door (and volunteer?) to get shot? He was shot through the door. What if one of the bullets hit him in the heart or abdomen? If I was "in on it" I would have investigated shots being fired on, say, the 31st or 33rd floor.

P.S. The answer to the type questions I pose is invariably, they must have been in on it too. They too wanted to kill a ton of innocent people. Why did they? Well, just because.

Kobe Beef's picture

I suppose that the first volley of bullets came from the two construction towers across the street behind the stage. The second volley came from the white building across the street from the rear of the concert venue.

If any bullets came from the 32nd floor suite, it was not Stephen Paddock who fired them, and they weren't effective at that distance.

I have the same questions as anyone else looking critically at this story. But those are my preliminary conclusions. Stephn Paddock is a dead patsy left in a staged crime scene.

The University of Texas "tower shooter" did essentially the same thing. He also inflicted heavy casualties. The only difference was that all of his targets were spread out around the expansive grounds of a university. They weren't packed in inside a fence at an outdoor concert.

If one is commited to doing so and has the requsite weapon(s) and ammo, One can kill a lot of people from the 32nd floor of a hotel room or from a tower located in the center of a large college campus.  The height, firing lines and the protection your firing position affords you make this far more likely than if the shooter was firing from ground level.  Common sense really. My point was that people HAD reached this same conclusion before Las Vegas and had carried out shooting attacks from elevated, protected locations.

Craig Sawyer, formerly of seal team 6, said there was more than one shooter. He said the whole thing stinks. I am no longer reading the shit they are shovelling to the public.

This is disgusting on so many levels. I actually blame our govt more than the patsy, paddock.

Did precise calculations include angles from the Bellagio hotel and the 4th floor and the two windows at opposite ends he ran between three times per second?

Seriously, they were probably for the fuel tankers which failed to explode

"...detailed bullet trajectory and included calculations about where he needed to aim his weapons to maximize accuracy and optimize his kill rate"

So I expect they will soon reveal not only the note itself, but also the expert analyses of three independent handwriting analysts attesting to that writing/calculations belongs to Paddock. Or maybe they have overlooked that check of the evidence.
