Theories are swirling about what actually happened in Las Vegas Sunday night. The feds are being rather tight-lipped about the details, but local authorities are starting to speculate on their own that there’s more to the story than we’re being led to believe.
As reported at the New York Post, talking to the press on Wednesday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo revealed some new details about the case and gave a chilling comment about Paddock’s planned attack.
“Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and lived a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood,” Lombardo said. “He meticulously planned on the worst domestic attack in United States history.”
Adding to that statement, Lombardo said he still thinks that Paddock had help planning out his outrageous massacre.
“Because look at this, you look at the weapon obtaining the different amounts of Tannerite (explosives) available, do you think this was all accomplished on his own?” he said. “You got to make the assumption he had to have help some help at some point.”
Wednesday night, authorities announced that they found 1,600 rounds of ammunition and 50 pounds of explosives in Paddock’s car. While the ammunition isn’t that surprising, the explosives are. The ammonium nitrate and tannerite combo points to Paddock being even more ambitious in his plan. While acquiring the compounds isn’t too difficult, properly turning them into an effective bomb is. It makes one wonder if he was going it alone or had a partner lending a helpful hand.
Sheriff Lombardo said that while there isn’t a concrete lead or second suspect at the moment, his department will follow every lead and do everything possible to get to the bottom of this unfolding mystery. At this point, we’re just going to have to wait and see what new details emerge. Needless to say, the men and women in blue in Las Vegas have their work cut out for them in the days ahead.
