"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
This is the guard who was taking names. He left the 32nd floor at 10:54 and was down at room 31-135 with SWAT by 10:57pm. #LasVegasShooting
According to the electronic door logs, there was a lot of activity in and out of both of Paddock's rooms from 2:23-7:40pm the day of the shooting. To me this suggests that accomplices might have had rooms nearby and were moving stuff in preparation.
So anyone on Paddock's hallway should at least be a person of interest until cleared. We know who at least 8 of the 15-20 were, because they spoke to the media.
Room 129 is suspicious to me, because it was propped open for more than an hour during all that in and out activity at Paddock's suite. I wish I knew who was in that room. But right now I want to share what I found suspicious about room 132.
Room 132 shares a wall with 134, the room where a window was broken out and at least 8 high-powered .308 caliber shots were fired out the window. There was someone in room 132 during the whole shooting, and here's what he did…
When the shooting began (earlier than planned, IMO), he called 9-1-1. That's not suspicious, but what he told the 9-1-1 operator is.
He told her the shooting sounded close, but he told her he was on 30, not 32, and he gave a confusing description of which direction the shooting sounded like it was coming from. (PDF 17, pg 14)
Later he was interviewed by a different officer. This time he gave the correct floor and his room number, and he gave the same description of the direction the shots sounded like they were coming from (PDF 15, pg 36)
I find this whole "doors to the left" thing a little suspicious. As you'll see in a later statement, he hedges by saying he thought he heard shots coming from both directions. Remember, there was only a wall between him and room 32-134…
Tia Williams Newman was two rooms further away, and she said it was so loud that her husband could hear the shooting through the phone. She also knew right where it was, because she looked out her window in that direction and could see the muzzle flashes…
When he first called 9-1-1, they were still trying to locate the shooter, so his precise location and proximity to the shooter would have been of paramount concern, yet he gave confusing and wrong information.
Later, after being evacuated to the Thomas & Mack Center, he gave a third statement at 3:30am, this one hand-written. (Pdf 24, pg 148-149)
His writing is a little sloppy, so here's what it says: "I was in room 132, 32nd floor of Mandalay. I heard the shots - very loud - @ 10PM. Almost sounded like the room where the shooter was could have been the room next door...
"It seemed a few minutes later that the next shots I heard could have been in a room down the hall, in the opposite direction. Not sure of that. By that point - @ 10:30pm or so - I had the TV on, watching the early reports of the active shooter...
"Eventually I could hear the Las Vegas police/SWAT team running down the hallway. They broke into my room and got me out of there. But shortly before they broke in, there was a very loud bang. Explosion? Perhaps? ...
Shortly after that the Mandalay alarms went off. Then they broke the door down and got me out of there." [End of statement]
That's it. This guy never spoke to the media as far as I know. He was in the room right next door, one wall between him and the broken window. So think about whether his statements are consistent with him being an accomplice.
Maybe not, but if he was an accomplice, then he got shut out when they started firing at Campos down the hallway. He was trapped in that room, but he needed to get a 9-1-1 call on the record. If he didn't call 9-1-1, that would've been suspicious.
Also, if he was an accomplice, staying in the room next door (which he would have requested because he'd stayed there "on his wedding night" or whatever), he would have probably registered using a false identity. Think about it.
Now look at the top of his written statement:
Someone started writing Joseph and stopped, crossed it out, and wrote a different name instead. Isn't that odd? And they didn't redact that part. Almost seems intentional to me, because if you were told to redact names, wouldn't you redact that whole name line regardless?
The more I think about this guy, the more suspicious it seems. He was the closest person to the shooting, yet he gave sketchy information. He avoided the media even though he's a "writer-editor". And did he actually start giving his real name at first? Hmm…
So when you're going through the 9-1-1 calls, let me know if you come across Josep's. And also Marilou's ex-brother-in-law. I'd like to hear that one too. Thanks. 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

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

Could "____ as ____" be an accomplice? #LasVegasShooting
PDF 17, pages 13 & 14 are the statement of Officer K. Parenteau, who from the time he arrived on-scene until he was released at 5:40am the morning of 10/2, had the duty of calling back people who had called 9-1-1 and may have more information.
One of the people he called back was Marilou Danley's ex-brother-in-law, who had called to give the police the phone # of someone he obviously thought might be involved. For some reason, he must have immediately thought of this person when he saw the news, and called in the tip.
