Texas Bites Apple for Mass Killer’s iPhone Files

Authorities are demanding Apple turn over all photos, messages and documents that might have been stored on an iPhone belonging to Devin Patrick Kelley, the crazed gunman who shot dead 26 worshippers at a Texas church.

The Texas Rangers obtained search warrants for files stored on Kelley’s phone, which was discovered near his body after the Nov. 5th bloodbath at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, The San Antonio Express-News reports.

Those files kept may be stored in Kelley’s iCloud account, according to law enforcement officials.

An Apple spokesman told the Express-News the company does not comment on law enforcement matters.

The warrant comes as authorities continue to piece together the motives behind the mass shooting that stunned the nation.

During a church service, Kelley went aisle to aisle shooting victims — including crying babies — at point-blank range. He later died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Kelley is said to have had a history

Sandy Hook shooting: FBI files reveal mass killer Adam Lanza had paedophilic interest in children

There was evidence the Newtown school shooter had an interest in children that could be categorised as paedophilia, but there was no proof he acted on it, according to FBI documents released Tuesday.

The records were among more than 1,500 pages of documents released by the FBI in connection with its investigation of the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where Adam Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators before killing himself as police arrived.

The records also say there was evidence Lanza began contemplating the attack as early as March 2011.

“The shooter did not ‘snap,’ but instead engaged in careful, methodical planning and preparation,” the FBI’s behavioural analysis unit wrote. “The shooter was fascinated with past shootings and researched them thoroughly. The shooter shared many similar characteristics and behaviours with other active shooters.”

The behavioural analysis unit document did not say what evidence there

Orange County father of Las Vegas mass shooting victim files wrongful death lawsuit – KABC

The father of a Huntington Beach woman killed in the Las Vegas shooting massacre has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the operators of the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort, Live Nation and the manufacturer of bump stocks.

Andrea Castilla, 28, was one of the 58 people killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, when a gunman opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.

“I just kept looking at her and kissing her and holding her hand and praying that she was going to make it,” said Athena Castilla, Andrea’s sister.

She was at the concert with Andrea and recalls holding her bleeding head, trying to get to a hospital. Andrea was at the concert, celebrating her birthday with her boyfriend, sister and a friend, when terror struck.

“I miss being with her and we just had so many other memories and plans to have ahead of us,” Athena said.

Andrea’s father,

California Student Injured During Las Vegas Mass Shooting Files Lawsuit; Authorities Investigating Shooter’s Timeline

A California college student injured in the Las Vegas music festival massacre filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the hotel owners, the concert promoter and bump stock manufacturers, claiming they were all liable in the mass shooting.

The claims against MGM Resorts International, which owns both Mandalay Bay and the concert venue that hosted the festival, raise more questions about a timeline that has changed numerous times — and, according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, could change again. The suit also questions why hotel staff didn’t notice gunman Stephen Paddock’s behavior in several instances.

Specifically, the lawsuit accuses MGM, of failing to respond in a timely manner to the “shooting of Mandalay Bay security officer Jesus Campos, who had gone to the 32nd floor to check on an alert from another guest room and who was shot six minutes prior to” the massacre beginning.

Shooter used incendiary rounds?
