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.
