New Charges Possible In Mandalay Bay Shooting While Mystery Shrouds Broken CCTV

New charges could be coming in the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay mass murder, an attorney for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said Tuesday during a courtroom battle over the release of search warrants related to the shooting. 

Arguing in against several media organizations who made the request, LVPD attorney Nicholas Crosby noted that because potential charges against other people could be in the works - releasing the warrants could taint their ongoing investigation, according to Fox News

Crosby said that no new charges are imminent, though could come in the future. 

Crosby's revelation came as a surprise to most in the courtroom. It was the newest information in regards to the investigation that the public seems to have garnered unwittingly by Crosby when explaining to have the warrants remained sealed. Crosby did not say who would face charges. 

Crosby, paradoxically, posited that he cannot argue the facts of the case without compromising what the police are trying to protect. He suggested having an in-camera hearing, meaning one in private.

While the Las Vegas PD's warrants were kept under seal for the time being, last week FBI search warrants were unsealed for Stephen Paddock and girlfriend Marilou Danley's email accounts, which revealed Paddock engaging in a cryptic exchange with himself over various firearms used in the shooting. 

Ms. Danley also admitted to investigators that her fingerprints were likely to be on the ammunition, as she said she frequently helped Paddock load magazines and move rounds. 

Multimillionaire real-estate developer and video-poker aficionado Stephen Paddock, 64, unleashed a hail of bullets into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay on the night of October 1, 2017, killing 58 over a 10 minute period before reportedly shooting himself in the head.

Meanwhile one of several questions surrounding the still-unsolved Mandalay Bay shooting is the lack of any closed circuit television footage (CCTV) of shooter Stephen Paddock anywhere in the hotel in the days leading up to the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.


Stephen Paddock

No footage has been seen of Paddock checking in at the Mandalay Bay lobby, walking around the hotel, or lugging more than 20 long rifles up to his 32nd floor room along with thousands of rounds of ammunition before his deadly rampage on October 1, 2017 which claimed the lives of 58 country-music fans over a 10 minute period.


Mandalay Bay Valet Chad Nishimura spoke briefly with Paddock, and said he "seemed like a normal guy. When he came in, nothing too weird about him. He didn't have any crazy bags with him that I can remember. We are a convention hotel so we have a bunch of people that have boxes and multiple carts worth of stuff. There's nothing weird that I can remember."


Given that Las Vegas casinos are some of the most heavily monitored establishments in the United States - if not the world, it stands to reason that there would at least be some footage of Paddock roaming around before the attack - however there may be an explanation...

After a theft of marketing materials during the 2017 VMworld conference held in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center August 27-31, hotel officials were unable to provide closed circuit television footage due to "camera/equipment malfunction."


As The Register reported two weeks after the theft: 

[H]yperconverged contender Maxta printed badges bearing the motto “You can't have it your way with Nutanix” and stored them in private areas of its stand at the exhibition running alongside VMware's conference. The company alleged that 200 of the badges were removed from the stand by parties unknown.

Maxta therefore sought CCTV footage of the exhibition floor. The company that runs VMworld security took the request seriously enough to approach the venue, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. In correspondence seen by The Register Mandalay Bay staff say “Video of the incident area was not available due to camera/equipment malfunction”.

VMworld's security firm was also told that security footage “is proprietary to Mandalay Bay” and cannot be viewed by third parties.

Maxta tells us it was also given the “proprietary” excuse.

Mandalay Bay security executives ignored multiple requests by The Register as to their policies regarding security footage or why the system was down, noting "It's richly ironic that CCTV failed to work at an exhibition that hosts as big a collection of storage and security vendors as you're likely to find together at one place and at one time. It's also odd that Mandalay Bay's video cameras and recorders went down – perhaps it saves the reliable surveillance kit for spotting naughtiness on the the gaming floor."

The lack of CCTV footage is just one of many strange aspects of the still-unsolved deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history - which include a shifting timeline, a mysteriously missing security guard, strange stock options activity leading up to the attack, $100,000 Paddock wired to his girlfriend in the Philippines days before the attack, a claim by ISIS that Paddock had converted to Islam six months before the attack, a strange 4chan warning of a "high incident project" three weeks before the attack, and a strange woman warning people about the shooting before the concert:

Paddock also took over 20 cruises to the Middle East and Europe, including Jordan and the UAE. 

As we reported on Saturday, unsealed search warrants reveal Paddock may have been setting up some of arrangement over email in July, 2017, seemingly with himself. 

In an email sent from Paddock's Microsoft Live email account, "" to "," Paddock wrote "try and ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area." The "centralpark4804" account wrote back "we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try." Paddock emailed back "for a thrill try out bumpfire ar's with a 100 round magazine."


According to some, this is the first information on the record suggesting that the gunman may have had help.

The warrant goes on to read "Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas."

Upon searching Paddock's Mesquite, NV home, police recovered approximately 18 firearms, more ammonia nitrate, several pounds of the explosive tannerite, several rounds of ammunition, and "electronic devices" - while a "large quantity of ammunition and multiple firearms" were recovered from Paddock's Reno residence. 

Paddock also reportedly attempted to buy a large quantity of tracer ammunition in the month prior to the attack, however the dealer he approached did not have any in stock.

While breaching Paddock's room at approximately 10:55 pm, an officer accidentally fired one round from his sidearm, reportedly not hitting anyone. Paddock, meanwhile, was found laying awkwardly over a rifle with what investigators reported to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Oddly, recordings of the incident do not contain Paddock's final "suicide shot." 

Apparently what happens in Vegas really does stay in Vegas - even when it comes to the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Whatever actually happened in this incident I think it's fair to say they got away with it.  If somebody came out and told the literal truth behind this, right now, tonight, nobody would believe it.

Sorry but this one is going down in the conspiracy theory hall of fame probably only one or two notches below the JFK assassination.

He was a gun runner for Al Talweed. He was doing an arms deal that was actually a hit on Bin Salman. He got caught during a broken hit and was made to look like the fall guy. The media knows this already. That was Bin Salman in the Tropicana video. He was supposed to be on top floors of Mandalay but snuck out to play cards. The massacre was a distraction.

This story has more holes than the supposedly 200 rounds fired into the hallway at Campos. Wait what....has anyone seen forensic pictures of these bullet holes in any walls, doors, ceilings, etc in that hallway? Why not?.... because they don't exist.

They did manage to release a picture of a missing top-half section of the door to room 32135...

I doubt anyone dangerous could ever get near  Saudi prince in USA. When I used to ski in Aspen a Saudi built a 22,000 sf house on the hillside and was surrounded by bodyguards 24/7 even when he went snowmobiling. Oddly, he also had about a half dozen CIA guarding him at all times on top f fhis own security.

I think the story is something along the lines that he was helping CIA type outfit sell guns to someone.  The room was comped and the guns were put there by some other outfit.  The deal went bad and Paddock was killed in a double cross.  The problem for me is who stayed in that room for so long shooting when exiting should have been a priority?  And then there are the issues of possible shooters outside the room.

There was was also a report out that the SWAT team that breached the room had an "accidental discharge" after entering, which was denied until proving by audio. A supposed leak from an assistant in the DA's office states that the discharge was not accidental, the SWAT team leader "Zebra4zero" fired one round, striking Paddock in the head. The audio recording is ambivalent, stating breach accomplished, one suspect down.

The FBI is a criminal mafia acting under color of law and they are covering up the nature of this crime.


I highly doubt Paddock fired a round.


Here’s what I know, for sure, and what videos posted all over the internet prove beyond any doubt -


There was more than one shooter, and they were some substantial distance (dozens of yards / 10+ stories) apart.


This is absolutely readily proven by video and the fact fbi and the msm are acting otherwise should terrify you as to just how corrupt and controlled The Matrix truly is.


The issue is -  who in the FBI is ordering the coverup and why?

If you recall, even some, we, here on ZH pointed to the evidence contained in the cabbie video, and another one from a cell phone, which beyond a shadow of a doubt multiple shooters can be heard. Moreover, the shots were coordinated in such a way as to disguise the fact that they originated from multiple sources.

slightly OT...I got this link from another site, which may be of interest to you and others; not sure if you read or not, but it's worth the read:

Paddock was a Fed or an informant and that's why they're covering up the motive.

They would have us believe he's just some "regular" boomer who was 

1. A firearms expert

2. A private pilot with multiple homes situated by private airfields

3. Retired since the early 90's after a history of government work and also for Lockheed.

4. Made millions off Casinos(Impossible).

5. Didn't have any political views or SM posts.

He has probably been working for the Feds the entire time since his "retirement".

Probably snapped and went "resistance" or this was a setup on a gun deal that were then used for the attack.

And that's why they broke into his house the week after to cover up their tracks.

None of us can answer that as we did not carry it out.. but we can look at the things that occurred around the time of the event.  Lots of money was made with stock purchases and sales in the months and weeks prior to this Operation.  The MGM CEO sold almost all of his stock and even that great guy, George Soros, bought some MGM puts to the tune of seven digits in US Dollars.  After the dastardly act, Navada has seen the introduction of new gun laws and "safety bills" that include body scanners and the like.  This is all about controlling the human population and the script has been in play for a long fucking time.

Recall the shooting took place almost on the eve of the vote on the "hearing protection act" that would remove suppressors aka silencers from the NFA tax stamp list and make then and anyone can order online item.

recall this was already a postponed vote after the Washington DC congressmen shoot up on the baseball/softball field at 7:00am something in the morning.

someone please help fact check me on these to coinciding dates of shooters vs pending dates of "hearing protection act" votes.

it killed the billed it seems.

Recall also that there was air traffic controller recording of active shooters on the runway. lots of commo about helios with door gunners.

multiple shooters, patsy, gun deal gone wrong, all of the above.

I'm still steamed about Sandy Hoax and Boston Pressure cooker thing, with the root top snipers and the dudes in 5.11 tactical gear and "punisher" logo caps with the same backpack as the brothers who had the device.

recall we never saw any CCTV footage of mini 115lb Adam lanza coming thru the front door of the school, all armored up and toting an arsenal with him either

When I was infantry and 19 at 145lbs, it just about killed me. no way that kid was play rambo in full body armor and a combat load of gear as frail as he was, let alone his perfect kill-to-injury rate. no autopsy result published there or in Vegas if i understand correctly.

Yes, they have gotten away with it- so far.. this was the same cunts that did 9/11.  Watch Scott Binsack's video's chronicling his investigation into the Las Vegas Op.  All the other people that I've ever seen online claiming to be "investigating" this are just self-serving liars (douchebags). 


P.S. I am starting to doubt ZeroHedge's credibility a la the Las Vegas Massacre bs & constant trumpeting of any and everything cryptocurrency.  Sad to say that, but ya..

i read somewhere that he was an arms dealer, driving from Phoenix' Fast & Furious Drive-Thru and loading his car's trunk up with guns, then driving back to Las Vegas to "____________" Fill in the Blank because that's where my story stopped.

This is a zionist led massacre on the white heterosexual, america loving crowd. You can bet your ass this was a zio op. Human goy sacrifice. The Bolshevik revolution has arrived in America folks.
