1/ "Tony"-Pdf 25, pg 21-22 & pdf 5, pg 85; 2 statements from the same Uber driver. 1st @ 12:57AM on 10/2 @ CCAC, and then he gave a longer statement at 3:25AM @ PDHQ on MLK Bl, suggesting he was pretty confident his story was related to the shooting. #LasVegasShooting
2/ His story: Fri., 9/29, 7pm, picked up Caucasian man (5’ 9” 190 lbs, black hair) and woman (5’ 4” 120 lbs brown hair) from airport, claimed to be military “from all over” and mentioned that Vegas wasn’t prepared for a terrorist attack like Paris and Belgium.
3/ Had been to Vegas recently and noticed it would be easy for someone to shoot up the place. Driver suggested there are more police than you might think and “Tony” doubled down to disagree.
4/ Delivered them to MGM. Driver said “thanks for protecting our country” and Tony responded as if he’d forgotten he said he was in the military.
5/ "TSA Agent"-Pdf 3, pg 143; This witness works for TSA, probably at McCarran. She's 44 and was with her boyfriend who also witnessed same thing. They reported to both LVMPD and FBI on 10/1 before midnight, then in person @ FBI office on 10/2, then in written form to PD on 10/15
6/ They saw two women in their 30s with a couple in their 50s/60s near the back of the venue where it was mostly empty.1st woman (5'5"-5'6") was holding phone up to record the crowd toward the stage when she said, "Stupid f-ing white people, they deserve this, wait until later."
7/ 2nd woman (5'4") said, "Like shooting fish in a barrel." These four were "Mexican" in appearance, but spoke perfect English with no accent. This was 45 minutes before the shooting, and then they were gone. Witnesses also recalled a "white young couple arguing at Entrance 3."
8/ "White Couple"-Pdf 3, pg 132; A victim giving her statement in hospital asks, "Can I say something that happened right before?" She then describes a couple standing near them, a tall guy "who looked like he was in the military" and a girl who "were acting really, really weird"
9/ She said they had been whispering a lot, then the girl said something to the guy and they just left. She said she thought at the time that it was really weird when they left, because everyone was there to see Jason Aldean.
10/ "Hispanic Couple"-On 10/2 at 12:28am, a girl who left the concert prior to Jason Aldean's set reported that there had been a lady who pushed her way up to the first row about 45 minutes before the shooting, and yelled, "You're all gonna die tonight."
11/ The girl said "obviously she was telling us that either to warn us, or to tell us that we were all gonna die and she was part of it." When asked to describe the woman, she said, "her and her boyfriend were both Hispanic, about 5'5"-5'6", they just looked like everyday people"
12/ "The Stranger"-Pdf 26, pg 38; A stranger walks up to two ushers at the main gate on Saturday night and says, "Be safe tomorrow, I don't want you to get hurt"
13/ "3 Females in Room"-Pdf 12, pg 26; This is a dispatch log, entered by dispatch, logging what was reported by officers in the control room at Mandalay Bay. This was at 11:02pm, 18 min. before they breached the room.
14/ This is when they get Paddock's name as the person in 32-135. The log states, "possible suspect, Paddock, Stephen, there are 3 females in room, 1. [name redacted] 2. [name redacted] 3. [name redacted] checked in on 9/25 scheduled to check out Oct 2nd
15/ "The Filipina"-Pdf 10, pg 3; A busser at the Noodle Shop in Mandalay Bay remembers serving Paddock and a lady that she thought looked Filipino because her husband is Filipino. After seeing pictures on the news, she thought it was Paddock and Danley.
16/ This was on 9/29 at about 12:05pm. Then Paddock goes out into the casino while the lady goes to the bathroom in back. The FIT report has Paddock ordering sushi by himself 20 minutes later at Mizuya, which has a sushi bar right on the casino floor, very near the Noodle Shop.
17/ "The Noise Complaint"-At 1:30am on 10/1, 20.5 hours before the shooting, someone in Paddock's suite called security twice to complain about the loud country music coming from the room below, 31-135. Paddock, however, was in Mesquite at the time. He didn't return until 3:05am.
18/ The story and time are solid. Here are articles from the NYTimes and the Daily Mail:


You can also hear the guy from room 31-135 who received the complaints describe it in this podcast. Jump to 48:30…

19/ Paddock was clearly entertaining people in his suite. He ordered an extra room, a 2nd fridge, and brought in a cooler. Someone raided the minibar in 134 on 9/30, probably while Paddock was gone from 1-6am, because he seemed surprised when staff showed up to restock it at noon
20/ Yet he was careful to never be seen on camera with anyone else, or so we're told. We've all seen the footage. He was only seen alone, but he was not alone. He was trying to give the impression of normalcy, that his regular girlfriend was there with him, but she wasn't.
21/ From day 1, there has been enough circumstantial evidence of accomplices to make them more likely than not. And now that these reports are coming out, we can start putting some skin on those bones. With the right framework of understanding, everything above fits. The end.

Did they go out on Saturday to practice shooting with bump stocks, adjust their vertical fore grips, and get used to the sights? #LasVegasShooting
There's an open shooting range just 16 miles from the Mandalay Bay. It's really just open desert where people go to shoot automatic weapons and blow up tannerite and stuff like that. #LasVegasShooting

It's so secluded that in recent years there have been incidents of MS13 gang members ambushing people who are shooting out there, and robbing them of their guns. #LasVegasShooting

Foreshadowing: A warning or indication of a future event

Chilling as it is, there were several…
The Bus Stop: "Say a prayer before what's about to happen tonight." 10:03pm, 2 minutes before the attack, and he was looking at the Mandalay Bay while he said it. (PDF 1, pg 44) #LasVegasShooting
Route 91 Entrance: "Be safe tomorrow, I don't want you to get hurt." Said the night before the attack. A man walked up to two ushers working the main gate and said that to each of them separately. (Pdf 26, pg 38) #LasVegasShooting

"Josep.."-On PDF 11, pg 108, a Mandalay Bay security guard recounts "15-20" people being evacuated from Paddock's hall… #LasVegasShooting
That began shortly after 10:41, and took less than 10 minutes. They didn't evacuate all the way down to Paddock's room. For example, the room right next to 32-134 didn't get evacuated until after they breached the suite, because they didn't want to get too close to Paddock's door
It's unclear how many names they wrote down, and if those names were even real names. When they interviewed the security guard who was supposed to be writing down names, he said "Well I got some of 'em." (PDF 9, pg 29) #LasVegasShooting

In 2016, right after moving into his new house in Mesquite, Paddock had a neighbor named Rick. Rick was an ex-Marine, and Rick and his friend Steve would go to the corner bar after work, where Paddock would be sitting at the bar playing bar-top video poker… #LasVegasShooting
Rick and Steve played video poker too, and drank beers with Paddock whilst making small talk. During this small talk, Rick told Paddock that he'd been in the Marine Corps, and they even talked about guns, but strangely, Paddock never mentioned that he owned even a single gun...
Paddock never talked politics with Steve, until one day when Steve came in wearing a Trump shirt. This was before Trump was even the official candidate, months before the election. During small talk about the t-shirt, Paddock said he was a Trump fan too...

Campos didn't see the room-service cart, he was told by others after the fact that it's how Paddock saw him. But Paddock also had the peephole cam. Why does everyone assume Campos missed the cart when the simplest answer is that it wasn't out in the hallway yet? #LasVegasShooting
That would mean it wasn’t in the hallway when the shooting began, and THAT implies Paddock wasn’t alone. It implies that the 32-134 door was opened after it was bolted at 9:46pm, but before SWAT opened it at 11:30pm... #LasVegasShooting
It implies that Campos interrupted something, which caused the shooter(s) to begin prematurely… which further implies that there could have been a different (more expansive) plan, one which had to be abandoned after shooting at Campos down the hallway... #LasVegasShooting

"While Jake Owen was playing… Hispanic female in her 50s and male in his 20s… stated "there are people all around and you're all going to die." –Officer J. Williams, Homeland Security Division, PDF 15, pg 35 #LasVegasShooting
Officer Williams then went to the Live Nation Command Post and viewed footage of "the female who made threats prior to the shooting… and forwarded to Counter Terrorism." PDF 16, pg 149 I wonder if she was identified. #LasVegasShooting
"2 women on the hay bales,on highest pile holding cell phone up: "These stupid f-ing white people,they are going to know how it feels,they deserve this,wait until later. Woohoo, like shooting fish in a barrel, are you getting this baby?" tl.gd/n_1sqhprt #LasVegasShooting
