Dozens Of New Crime Scene Photos Released From Vegas Shooting Add More Questions

By Matt Agorist

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department finally released a substantial amount of information this week in the form of 28 crime scene photographs. The photos show the alleged shooter’s room, vehicle, security setup, and even the infamous note. While these photos give us more insight into the shooting, they also leave us with many more questions.

The first photos in the series are not too damning, but they do show the extensive preparations taken by the shooter to prevent entry into the room.


The images also show how Stephen Paddock allegedly set up cameras to see if anyone was coming.


How nobody noticed several wires running from a door onto a food service cart, attached to multiple webcams remains a mystery.



When we look at the photos inside the room, this is when the serious questions begin to come up.


There are literally weapons scattered across the entire suite. AR-15 style rifles lay strewn across the floor, on tables, in the hall, on chairs—everywhere.


SITTING AREA #2 32-135

BAR AREA 32-135



Adding even more mystery to the case is the random photo of a snorkel mouthpiece which was taped to a longer hose. Perhaps the shooter was preparing for tear gas canisters to be fired into the room. However, we don’t know because police did not release any photos showing where the hose ends. Why is that?




Police finally released a close-up photo of “the note” which was seen in the original leaked images. Why, exactly, police couldn’t confirm what was on the note originally remains a mystery.


Below are photos of the door police smashed in with a battering ram—more than an hour after Paddock allegedly opened fire in the hallway. As TFTP previously reported, because Paddock was a high-roller, the hotel used a special backline to police to warn them about the shooting. It was this backline which was blamed for the slow response by police as they were trying to help the casino keep the incident under wraps.



Other images show the massive amount of tools and other very suspicious items in Paddock’s room. The reason these images are so suspect is due to the fact that hotel staff admitted to interacting with Paddock—including going into his room—and said they saw nothing suspicious.


How, exactly Paddock managed to conceal the small arsenal of weapons from housekeeping is just as big of a mystery as to how he got them in the room in the first place without being noticed.




Other than the hotel room, police also released images of Paddock’s minivan. The contents of the minivan raise even more questions.



Paddock had dozens of cylinders of Tannerite. Tannerite is a legal explosive used by gun enthusiasts as a means of reporting a direct hit. Why Paddock had so much of it makes very little sense as Tannerite cannot be set off remotely with an electrical current or fire, or anything other than a bullet. If Paddock was going to set those orange canisters around the concert and shoot them to incite terror, he would have had one difficult time trying to hit them from such a distance.

What makes more sense, however, is that Paddock was an arms dealer. As TFTP reported, last week, emails from Paddock’s computer were released raising suspicions that Paddock was an arms dealer.

An email exchange from [email protected], a Microsoft account FBI agents claimed was used by Paddock, was included in an affidavit reported by NPR. The date was July 6, 2017—about three months before the shooting—and while the FBI noted that it is unclear who is behind [email protected], the email account Paddock was contacting, the information included is significant.

…[[email protected]] sent an email to [email protected] which read, ‘try an ar before u buy. we have huge selection. located in the las vegas area,’ Later the day, an email was received back from [email protected] to [[email protected]] that read, ‘we have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.’ And lastly, [[email protected] sent an email to [email protected] that read, ‘for a thrill try out bumpfire ar’s with a 100 round magazine.’ Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

In the first message, Paddock claimed that the recipient would have the opportunity to try out the weapons before they purchased them. He then wrote “We have huge selection,” indicating that he was not working alone, and he said he was located “in the Las Vegas area.”


Police also released images of the fuel tank which they claim Paddock may have tried to blow up by shooting it. The images show that the tank was indeed hit with two rounds in random places.




A chilling image of Paddock’s vantage point was also released.


While these photos are certainly a step forward in finding out what really happened in Vegas, they are not enough. As TFTP reported this week, police have just contradicted themselves once more and reported that there are multiple suspects in the case. However, they gave out no more information.

  1. Where’s all the brass? Where’s all the blood? First photos and reports from weeks ago said the weapons were all lined up against a wall, now they are scattered. One more thing. Bump stocks are a joke, you literally could not hit the broad side of a barn (although you can hit a huge tank) with one, let alone do head shots.

  2. Well then, what happened to this note. This was the note originally played off as drop calculations:

  3. More fakery from the Coppers. No one would bring that many weapons into the room – hell- the “photo stagers” of the weapons didn’t notice with weapons thrown all over the place – would make you trip over them when things get -crazy? First stage of taking over your own country is the police state and False Flags.

    Very Suspicious Timeline:

    From approximately 2040 to 2205 hours, a series of events led up to the mass shooting
    conducted by Paddock:
     At approximately 2040 hours, a HotSOS alarm was generated for room 32-129.
     At approximately 2118 hours, the HotSOS call was assigned to Security Officer Campos
    via his cellphone. Security Officer Campos was assigned five HotSOS calls during the
    2118 hours cellphone call. According to interviews of hotel staff, it is common practice to
    assign HotSOS calls to security officers and then immediately close out the HotSOS
    tickets prior to a security officers actually checking out the room. Security Officer Campos
    handled the HotSOS call for room 32-129 last.
     At approximately 2136 hours, the dead bolt to room 32-135 was engaged.
     At approximately 2140 hours, Jason Alden started his performance at the Route 91
     At approximately 2146 hours, the dead bolt to room 32-134 was engaged
    Approximately 2146 to 2204 hours
     Security Officer Campos entered the service elevator at approximately 2146 hours and
    got off on the 30th floor at approximately 2147 hours.
     Security Officer Campos walked to the stairwell in the 100 wing of the 30th floor and
    walked up to the 32nd floor.
     Security Officer Campos could not gain entry to the 32nd floor due to the door being
     Security Officer Campos walked up the stairs to the 33rd floor. Security Officer Campos
    walked down the 100-Wing of the 33rd floor to Center Core. He took a guest elevator to
    the 32nd floor.
     At approximately 2200 hours, Security Officer Campos exited the guest elevator and
    walked up the 100 Wing toward room 32-129. Security Officer Campos checked room 32-
    129 and found it was secure. Security Officer Campos walked into the foyer leading to
    the stairwell and observed the “L” bracket screwed into the door and frame.
     At approximately 2204 hours, Security Officer Campos picked up a house phone located
    inside the small foyer leading to the stairwell and called security dispatch to report the “L”
    bracket on the door to the stairs. Security dispatch transferred the call to maintenance
    dispatch. The maintenance dispatcher then transferred Security Officer Campos to the
    maintenance supervisor’s cell phone.
    From approximately 2205 to 2216 hours, Paddock committed a mass shooting that left 58 people
    dead and over 700 hundred injured:

    According to the report, Jesus Campos receives an assignment (allegedly computer generated by doors being ajar) to check 5 rooms at 2118 just 45 minutes before the shooting begins. That is five rooms out of 3,309 rooms. His last room checked was suite 32-129 just a few doors down from Paddock’s suite, rooms 32-134 and 32-135. The shooting begins at 2146! Now that is some serendipity! He happens to get a call for five rooms out of over 3000 in the hotel, and the last room he checks is a few rooms down from Paddock, right before the shooting begins; a shooting that took days, if not weeks of meticulous planning! I would wager that this is the “conspiracy theory” and that the hotel had notice that Paddock’s activities were suspicious (e.g., the numerous bags of guns, ammo and other equipment used in the incident). Of course, at this point, both the MGM and federal, state and local authorities are complicit with the ongoing cover-up that is not even being believed by the MSM.

    The Mandalay is one of the largest hotels in Vegas with 3,309 hotel rooms according to Wikipedia:

    the misinformation campaign continues

  7. The fairy-tales remain, and the photos clarify one useless fact; the photos are photos. Provided 3 months and 21 days after-the-fact. Of course, the local police do as direcated by FBI representatives. Or else.
    Reminds of the Sandy Hook hoax. And, the crooked Conn. state police and crooked Conn. governor. And, the crooks behind the fairy-tale dossier about president Trump, funded with tax-payer dollars. And the “rear-bumper” senator from S.C., alleged Republican, who yesterday attributed the “Gov shutdown” to president Trump. Tracing the US and international pazazz to the source and performing a magnanimous flush action might provide some clarity. Nor is the source either Russia or Iran. Removing a few thousand “dual citizens” who occupy the US and European nations but pledge 1st allegiance to a foreign nation or “territorial entity” might prove to be effective.

    • Those who need to be removed are the same ones screaming for gun control. Are they the same ones who are stockpiling the “SlaughterBots” ? Just wondering.

    • Yes, I sure feel sorry for the Las Vegas police chief caught right in the middle of this cover-up.

      • he is complicit, he was the mouth right from the beginning
        if he wasn’t happy with the narrative, he should have gotten the federales to do their own dirty work, including talking to the press (and more importantly) the people!

        • Hi Vito,
          I hadn’t even considered that. When I saw him on television he looked most unconfortable and ill-at-ease. I should have put it together as I did with the nice folks at Sandy Hook. You have to ask yourself, will the truth ever come out?

          • drain the swamp, once the extra-constitutional (outside of) alphabet soup agencies get shut down, make certain that their books are open and can be audited by everyone – find the truth JFK, Robert Kennedy, MLK, Reagan attempted assassination, Sandy Hook, Columbine, OKC, Bundy ranch, etc…
            it’ll be interesting seeing all of the worms coming out of the woodwork
            the moral of the story – don’t just vote next election, get active, be out there, remove D and R candidates (especially the ones with names like Reid, McCain, Schumer, etc…) out of congress, make certain that from now on all of them are american first

          • Yes. The word is that such a person receives the hint of whether he wants his family to continue to live. Detailed instructions are then provided for him and staff to follow.
            The story of Darlene Novinger, secret FBI agent who reported George H.W. Bush receiving a cocaine delivery in the White House, clarifies what happens to the family of persons who do not cooperate.

          • The deceit that engulfs the 01 Oct 2017 Las Vegas event is apparent. If a co-conspirator in the event reveals insider details, the person will undergo a Seth Rich event promptly. Perhaps even prior to the release of insider info.

        • When the FBI/CIA intervene, the local sheriff-police chief either do as directed or suffer grievous consequences. Consequences such as federal charges and imprisonment or a fatal heart attack or a fatal collision or a “Seth Rich-type” assassination.

          • the old saying “if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime!” comes to mind
            one reason why 98% of your policemen are deputies, while 98% of your sheriffs are actually politicians, and most don’t deserve to even be in their positions, winners like with most politicians, due to large quantities of cash

    • Yes, “dual citizens” indeed!!!

    • firing squad, anyone?

  8. Geesh! What a tacky hotel!

    But seriously, folks. Those photos sure look prearranged.

  9. all movie props, and you see it often, the propsmaster lets his (her / its) appy go mad, and then has to come back to fix everything up to look a little more realistic
    props left everything (didn’t fix it up), and now we must believe a fairy tale

    The open border/gun confiscation globalists are behind this. They wanted to shoot conservative country/western fans in a desperate attempt to get them to back “gun control,” which is really about grabbing ALL the guns. Of course, they failed miserably. True patriots will never give up their guns without a fight.

  11. I can’t imagine the agony the LV chief is going through trying to sort out the FBI/CIA nonsense he is told with what really happened. As what his detectives have found and what he was told they found. Poor bastard!

  12. Psyop to cover something else and a grab for your guns and a sacrifice
