Final Report from Las Vegas Police: No Known Motive for Mass Shooting at Mandalay Bay; Paddock Acted Alone

I suspect that Paddock did have a motive -- one discerned from his choice of targets -- but I don't know and can't assert that there's evidence for this beyond the circumstantial.

Police do tend to, ahem, overlook evidence when it leads them to a motive that is Officially Disfavored by the FBI and federal government generally.

Remember, the FBI's official position is that they don't know James Hodgkinson's motive, either. Officially, he just had anger management issues:"

While he was prone to rage against the politics of President Trump and was carrying the names of six lawmakers in his pocket at the time he was fatally wounded in an exchange of gunfire with police, federal investigators said they were still at a loss for what drew Hodgkinson to the quiet neighborhood of Del Ray and ultimately to launch the assault in which he fired 60 rounds.

"He was struggling in all kinds of different ways,'' FBI Assistant Director Tim Slater said.

All kinds of different ways.

Anyway, they're closing the book now.

"We have not been able to definitively answer the 'why,'" Lombardo said at a news briefing.

He also said the investigation indicates that Paddock acted alone, adding that he does not anticipate any arrests in connection with the case.
