MORE COVER-UPS IN THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING
Laura Loomer, the only reporter who has the courage to dig deeper into police claims about Stephen Paddock being the “sole shooter,” reports that recently released documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that Sheriff Joe Lombardo lied when he said Paddock was alone in his room when police burst in. Police logs show that there were 3 other women in the room. Their names have been redacted so they cannot be found and interviewed.
Obviously they would tell a different story about what Paddock was doing in the room at the time of the shooting. Yes, there were certainly a few rifle casings on the floor of the room, but not piles of them which would have been the case if Paddock was the sole shooter who fired thousands of rounds.
Recent documents released regarding the the October 1, 2017 Las Vegas Shooting are beginning to shed light on more discrepancies and abnormalities surrounding the official timeline and narrative of the tragedy as originally stated by Sheriff Joe Lombardo and Special Agent Aaron Rouse of the Las Vegas FBI , including documentation that three women were found in the alleged shooter’s room.
The most recent batch of documents that were released include witness reports, dispatch logs, and officer reports that recount the events that took place that night and further reveal that Paddock was not alone in his room as was was first stated by Sheriff Lombardo.
Page 26 of the dispatch logs that were released by LVMPD details the moments when the alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock, was located by a security detail at the Mandalay Bay. As actions were taken to assemble a team of officers to apprehend the suspect, a dispatcher shared the name of the alleged shooter located in Room 32-135, along with three females that were reported to be in the room with Mr. Paddock. However, the names of those three women are redacted from the report, while the checkout date listed for the women aligns with Paddock’s planned check out date of October 2, 2017. In the log, as seen on page 26, the following was documented as having taken place at 11: 02 pm the night of the shooting when police breached Paddock’s room. “Units in control room 32 135. Suspect name of K(P)addock, Stephen. There three females in room.”
The three women are then listed at #1, #2, and #3, with their check in and check out dates, but their names are redacted from the log. “Checked on (in) on 9-25 scheduled to check out Oct 2nd.”
Shocking details such a the one above are found all throughout the nearly 2000 documents that were released following a court order after The Associated Press and additional media outlets had to sue the LVMPD for the release of this information, information that the public has the right to see, as there are many questions left unanswered due to communication shut down by Sheriff Joe Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Other details revealed in the dispatch log include calls that were made to report multiple gunshot wounded victims hiding in fear for their lives all over the strip. There were panicked calls made from Sundance Helicopter about possible hostages taken.
Sheriff Lombardo was challenged on the initial timeline by investigative journalist Laura Loomer at a live press conference based on evidence to support an earlier check-in date of September 25, 2017, and only then after being exposed as a liar on live TV did he provide the correct details. The newly released logs provide documented proof that Lombardo was aware of the check-in date of Paddock and his guests.
LVMPD and FBI have maintained for almost eight months that Stephen Paddock was a lone gunman. Their reports state that he did occupy two rooms during his stay, the 32-135 suite and an adjoining room, 32-134, which was registered under his girlfriend’s name, Marilou Danley.
Information within the official LVMPD reports also stated that Ms. Danley was out of the country on a trip to the Philippines at the time of the shooting. Despite her fingerprints being present on ammunition, and her own personal admission of helping Paddock load ammunition into his guns, LVMPD maintains she is no longer a suspect in the shooting.
This tends to confirm that Paddock did bring guns and ammunition into the room himself, but that he was set up to be cast as the “only shooter” when it is obvious by all the other shots fired at other casinos, that he was not alone. It is also improbable that Paddock wouldn’t have been aware of other shooters, who were part of the black operation running this shooting.
One of the recently released witness statements includes a witness who recounts seeing Danley and Paddock at The Noodle Shop the Friday before the shooting. A hairdresser shared a wild story of Paddock rambling about an open-air concert and easy access for shooting. The hairdresser claims she shared her concerns with Ms. Danley and reported them both to the police, according to her statement.
Obviously, she wasn’t out of the country, and the police had prior warnings, which they didn’t follow up on.
