Police Look at LV Shooter’s Cell Phones, Then Make Jaw-Dropping Discovery

Categories: Politics

Law enforcement officials have been trying to put together the pieces of Stephen Paddock’s deadly Las Vegas shooting rampage, with one item, in particular, that was found in his hotel room causing concern among investigators — a cell phone charger.

During the investigation, police reportedly found a cell phone charger and realized it did not match any of the cellphones that belonged to the gunman, according to NBC News.

This discovery lent more evidence to the theory that Paddock was accompanied, at some point, by another person in the Mandalay Bay hotel room and may have had help in the massacre that killed nearly 60 people and injured roughly 500 others.

Other crucial pieces of evidence that supported that theory and puzzled investigators were records from the hotel garage, which showed that during a period when the gunman’s car had left the garage, one his key cards was used to access his hotel room.

Investigators told NBC News that they were currently trying to figure out the significance of these two puzzling finds.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo also gave credit to the idea that Paddock did not act alone in his murderous shooting rampage.

“You got to make the assumption that he had to have had some help at some point,” Lombardo said, according to CBS News. “And we want to ensure that that’s the answer. Maybe he’s a super guy … [he] was working out all of this on his own. But it’d be hard for me to believe that.”

While initial reports speculated that Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was involved in the attack, officials discovered that she was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting.

Hopefully, police will put the pieces together soon. If there’s another shooter or shooters out there somewhere, we must find them and bring them to justice.
