Cryptic note full of numbers found in Las Vegas shooter’s hotel room

Cryptic Note With Numbers Found In Paddock’s Room

Authorities are still trying to find out what drove Stephen Paddock to launching the worst mass shooting in US history and this note with a cryptic message may by a key clue in the determination of that.

The mystery piece of paper was found near his dead body, Sheriff Lombardo said and it’s been sent off for analysis. It is not believed to be a suicide note.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill has also confirmed investigators found a piece of paper with a series of numbers written on it.

The 64-year-old to killed 58 and injured 489 when he opened fire on people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival off the Las Vegas strip on Sunday night.

Investigators are looking into whether Paddock also planned a car bombing.

He said Friday afternoon that police have yet to determine “what those numbers are or mean.”

“In the past, terror attacks or mass murder motive was made very clear by a note that was left, by a social media post, by a telephone call that was made, by investigators mining computer data,” Undersheriff McMahill said.

“Today, in our investigation, we don’t have any of that uncovered. I wish we did. We will and are continuing to investigate with great tenacity and hope to arrive at an answer,” he added.

Authorities are stating that Paddock used bump-fire stocks to carry out the massacre.  Theres a few issues with this determination however.

A spokesperson said: ‘Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law.

Honestly though anyone that knows guns is aware that bump-firing 100+ constant rounds on multiple occasions from an AR-15 is about as easy as sending your in-laws to a moon colony.  So almost impossible.  Not to mention the fact that authorities also said he may have used an AK as well.  I have never seen a bump stock on an AK. Most gun-nuts around the internet are saying that the cadence sound more like a box-fed or belt-fed M240 machine gun, which would be illegal in all states without a federal license which he did not have.

Here is a comparison of an AR-15 with a bump stock VS. the M240 – side by side with sounds of the Vegas shooting…

Meanwhile, AP reports Stephen Paddock usually kept a cigar at hand, even though he didn’t smoke. But he was quick to notice when somebody sat down beside him and lit up.

Then Paddock, a denizen of hazy casinos, would take out his cigar, light it and carefully aim its smoke back into the faces of those whose puffing annoyed him.

“He was the king of microaggression,” said his brother, Eric.

A lot of conspiracy theories are floating around on the internet.  I for one have listened to hours an hours of video and based on the overlapping cadence and levels of gunfire cadence, It really sounds like more than one person shooting at points.  You would also be very naive if you think that this was all planned and carried out by one 64 year old man.

Here is a slow motion evaluation of sound waves and cadence that I did as a follow-up to reporting of the varying sounds…
