It appears that the story surrounding the way in which the dead guy in Mandalay Bay room 32-135 died keeps changing

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been caught up yet once again in a controversy after search warrants released on Tuesday revealed that SWAT witnessed Stephen Paddock blow off his own head as they made entry into the 32nd-floor suite.

“As SWAT officers breached room 135, they observed Stephen Paddock place a gun to his head and fire one round,” a search warrant request from 3:02 a.m. on 2 Oct. states.

However, that doesn’t explain why two rounds were actually fired, as Intellihub reported on 19 Jan.

LVMPD spokesman Larry Hadfield issued the following statement regarding the matter Tuesday after the documents were released:

During the early stages of the investigation, search warrants were completed with the known facts at the time. A search warrant is requested and information provided is preliminary and establishes the probable cause and reason to search the premise. The preliminary report released on January 19 is a more complete picture of the investigation as we know it now. As the investigation unfolds, we will have more accurate information available at a later date.

Additionally, it was revealed by the Las Vegas Review-Journal that investigators seized a black vase of flowers from Paddock’s room.

On Oct. 31, police requested a search warrant to seize a black vase full of fake flowers that were inside gunman Stephen Paddock’s 32nd floor suite at Mandalay Bay.

The vase and flowers were not part of the standard Mandalay Bay room decor, according to the warrant. Police believed Paddock had purchased the items from Walmart four days before the shooting and brought them to the room.

As of yet it’s unknown if the flowers turned up any leads.
