Tucker Carlson pushes conspiracy theories on Las Vegas mass …

A perplexed Tucker Carlson insisted Wednesday that there were unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that took place earlier this month. But his inquiry has nothing to do with the white shooter — Stephen Paddock — who killed 59 concert goers and injured 546 people. No, instead, Carlson had questions about Jesus Campos, the security guard who allegedly confronted Paddock on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay just before the massacre.


Carlson began a segment on his Fox News program, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” by fueling a conspiracy theory that Campos was somehow involved with the shooting. He pointed to a trip Campos took to Mexico as a shady chapter to the overall story.


“We received this document from a confidential source this afternoon. It’s a Customs and

Experts have theories on Seminole Heights killer

The words serial killer tend to conjure an image of a middle-aged white man, likely a loner. He stabs or chokes or strangles, murdering up close for the thrill, straight out of central casting.

But the Hollywood profile does not fit the killings in Seminole Heights.

Three people have died in shootings in the neighborhood during the past two weeks, all seemingly at random — two young black men and one white woman in her 30s. Investigators say the slayings are connected.

“If we are talking about one killer, then we are talking about a serial killer in Tampa,” said criminologist Jack Levin. “However, he does differ from the typical serial killer in a very important way: He used a firearm.”

The murderer is probably young, 20s maybe, experts say, perhaps a member of a racial or ethnic minority. The killings may arise

Conspiracy Theories Spring Up, Spread in the Wake of Las Vegas Mass Shooting

A week after a mass shooting turned an outdoor country music festival into the site of a massacre, Las Vegas was a city mourning, and its iconic Strip a crime scene. Before many of the dead were even identified, a now all-too-familiar network of conspiracy peddlers had pounced.

Police say Stephen Paddock, 64, used the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino as a vantage point from which he rained automatic gunfire down on the Route 91 Harvest Festival crowd of 22,000 below. In what would be the worst mass shooting in modern United States history on 1 October 2017, 58 people lost their lives and hundreds more were injured. Hauntingly, when we visited the Strip the following weekend, bouquets still lay around the festival grounds, marking the spots where people had collapsed while trying to flee.

‘Puzzling’ discoveries fuel theories Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock wasn’t alone in Mandalay Bay hotel room

Detectives probing the Las Vegas gun massacre have made two puzzling discoveries which suggest that the killer may not have been alone in his hotel suite.

Police have said they are “very confident” killer Stephen Paddock did not have an accomplice during the deadliest shooting in US history.

But they were said to be troubled by two mysteries involving a mobile found charger and a hotel key card.

One concerned a phone charger which initially did not appear to belong to the 64-year-old gunman.

However, NBC News which first reported the claim, later clarified that all phones and charges had been ‘accounted for’.

There were also suggestions that the hotel’s records show one of Paddock’s key cards was used to enter his suite, after his car had left the garage.

But when asked about the rumoured discrepancy, Las Vegas Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said he had not heard anything about it.
