It turns out that the man was in a state of severe depression.
It became known that Stephen Paddock was so devastated before the mass killings, which he recently staged in Las Vegas.
There were reports that he complained of strangers in her life, took a valium and was probably suffering from a mental disorder.
Business partner killer Scott Armstrong, 54 years old, living in Reno, Nevada, said that the Paddock trust in him and talked about problems with his girlfriend Marila Darnley. Paddock contacted Armstrong about buying a BMW two months before he opened fire at the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, killing 58 people.
According to reports, the killer had to be prescribed medicine against anxiety, which can lead to aggressive behavior.
“Seeing the photo of Stephen Paddock, I realized that to the same person I met and talked about selling the BMW about two months ago,” said Scott Armstrong.
“From the very beginning of our interaction I felt that he was somehow upset. I am very intuitive and very good “read people”, – he added. Also, the Paddock was holding a note in his hotel room with the calculations on distance and trajectory – to kill as many people as possible. The gunman recorded the numbers on a sheet of paper. His note can be seen on the table, carefully placed under the ashtray.
Police are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting.
