Tony Shaffer and Mark Furman join Martha MacCallum to discuss the evolution of the case surrounding the massacre in Las Vegas. Shaffer notes there are three clues that Las Vegas Sheriff Lombardo has put out there which he believes we need to pay very close attention to.
The radicalization statement of a couple of days ago, a “spontaneous utterance” about this issue, has not been resolved or addressed. He says that secondly, “they’ve announced a global investigation now ongoing for people who may have been involved and helped him.”
Shaffer says, “That talks about a network, that means there’s something, either a criminal network or a terror network, but there’s something else there. And third, to the other point of the fact now that they’ve clearly said, there’s evidence, and they know more than they’re saying for obvious reasons.”
He continues, “They don’t want to give away any leads they’re trying to work, other people were probably involved, at least helping him, possibly even in the room that night. And we just don’t know what happened because it took SWAT an hour, from the initial notification to break that door down. A lot of things can happen in that hour of missing time.”
MacCallum asks Furman about the possibility that he had a getaway plan, bringing up the issue of the $100,000 he sent to the Philippines might not being intended for what the girlfriend claims. Furman says it’s possible that he had a getaway bag positioned near a door and that may be an indication.
He says, “But when you look at this scene, 23 firearms, 12 assault rifles, 12 bump-fire stocks, all this ammunition. You know, by himself, could it be possible, absolutely. Did they find some kind of unknown fingerprints, DNA or trace evidence on some of the rifles or someplace in the room that he had contact with that they can’t identify, quite possibly.”
Shaffer says he has information that there is some video of Paddock inside the room which he says talks to the motivation issue. They discuss the target selection of this event at Mandalay Bay as well as explosives in the car and whether he planned to use it as a bomb as well. There’s also another woman he was spending time with prior to the event, under the watchful eye of casino cameras.
Was she the woman who told people at the concert they were all going to die less than an hour before the shooting started?
