Las Vegas shooter Paddock had child porn on computer, FBI investigating person of interest: sheriff

          <p class="speakable">Investigators scanning computers belonging to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock found “numerous” child pornography photos and that the FBI is looking into a person of interest in the case, the city’s sheriff revealed Friday.</p>

              
<p class="speakable">Sheriff Joe Lombardo, in his first press conference since Oct. 13, 2017, released an <a href="https://www.lvmpd.com/en-us/Documents/1_October_FIT_Report_01-18-2018_Footnoted.pdf" target="_blank">81-page preliminary investigative report</a> on the shooting Friday that contains new photographs of Paddock's hotel suite and online searches he conducted before the attack, such as for SWAT tactics and other potential public venue targets.</p> He said the unnamed person of interest the FBI is looking into is not Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, and reiterated that authorities believe Paddock was a lone shooter.
          “I realize it’s been three months since you have received an update on the 1 October shooting,” Lombardo told reporters Friday. “We have done a lot of work trying to piece together what happened.”





          




          The sheriff said investigators “have gone over 2,000 leads and looked at 21,560 hours of video.”





          




          “This report won’t answer every question, or even the biggest question as to why he did what he did,” Lombardo said. “We are all going to have to be patient and let the investigation run its course.”
