In the year before Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the high-stakes gambler appeared to have become increasingly unstable, distant and constantly complained of being sick, according to a final investigative report released Friday.
Financial records also showed Paddock had lost more than $1.5 million in the two years before the Oct. 1 shooting that left 58 people dead and more than 800 others injured.
One of Paddock's brothers told investigators that he believed the gunman had a "mental illness and was paranoid and delusional," and his doctor believed he may have been bipolar.

The Warren Commission has spoken.
I would like to know if he had been an FBI informant, or known to the FBI or other three letter agencies.
If I had lost $1.5 million I might have been inclined to shoot myself...but nobody else.
Honestly, I had READ of such things, but I never thought FAKEBOOK would do it to me. Now that they HAVE, many friends are describing similar censorship, such as erasing of posts, or not letting their friend see messages sent to them, that have happened to THEM! Just NOW Fakebook would NOT let me type the Forbidden websites name and click Send! The forbidden website in question is of course www.codeisfreespeech.com That is a website for the fast, FREE downloading of 3D printable gun blueprints!
I don’t buy it. He transferred money to girlfriend just before hand. He owned houses and more. They seem to dismiss his history, travel, and affiliations. I think there is lots more to this, they just don’t want to share.
What utter BS, WHITEWASH, FAKE NEWS PROPAGANDA.
Butt, no actual “ motive”. It sure as hell wasn’t spur of the moment. PO’d at MGM?
He had a house here in Reno as well. Sommerset maybe. Can’t recall right now.
He was a “professional gambler”, which tells you 2 things: (1) He was deluded about his ability to make money in the casinos and (2) he was losing a boatload of money.
Just like that darn Joseph Frady.
Elsewhere in the movie, you can spot a “Home Improvement” guy..... /The art of “fencing”
The Warren Commission may have spoken but there was no internet 55 years ago and the FBI was far less corrupt 55 years ago. Many people don’t know McCabe ran this investigation from day one.
Need I say more?
Maybe he wanted to damage the casino for revenge through massive civil suits? I think the casino is even counter suing plaintiffs in an effort to stop or delay possible massive civil damage pay outs.
Horse hockey! Major cover up with that Paddock guy.
Yes, houses in Sommerset, plus Vegas, plus a condo in downtown Reno, and maybe more. His planes were previously sold or transferred to intelligence agency front organizations, if I recall correctly. He had money and assets, he had lots of long-term ties, plus his travel and associations that need more transparency.
Good old media, still pushing the Big Lie.
He was more than just a gambler. That is a way to cover up from and distract from the rest of his life, activities, and work.
Right. Tons $ on guns and ammo and he snapped because all that cost so much.
I wonder if PDJT knows the truth. If so, I’ll be patient as I will be told the truth later.
Took them a long time to dream up that doozy.
Yeah... What their saying is a bunch of crap.. He probably had $10,000 dollars worth of guns in the room with him..
