Who locked the adjoining door to room 134? More importantly, who rented the room?
LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — Anyone who has been closely following the Las Vegas shooting investigation knows that Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, for whatever reason, has not been fully forthcoming about all of the events which took place on the night of October 1.
One glaring detail that throws a wrench in the entire Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s official story in which authorities claim Stephen Paddock acted alone is the fact that the door which adjoins rooms 135 (Paddock’s suite) and 134 (a queen suite next to Paddock’s) was locked and had to be breached by SWAT after Paddock’s suite was secure.
If the adjoining door was locked and Paddock was already dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, then who locked the adjoining door to room 134 where the second window was broken out?
If SWAT had to breach the door it had to be locked from the opposite side. If that’s the case, then who rented room 134? Did they exit into the hallway Campos was in?
More importantly, who put the cart in front of the door which leads from into room 134 from the hallway and who ran the wires from the camera on the cart into room 134 under the door?
Keep in mind, as of yet, we do not know exactly who rented room 134. Although an Austrailian man by the name of Brian Hodge reportedly told “The Courier-Mail” that he was staying in room 32134 he may have been mistaken because receipts obtained by journalists after the fact reveal that Hodge was staying in room 32143, and not room 32134.
Was someone firing from room 32134?
As you may already know, on Nov. 1 Intellihub was the first to publish the precise video timestamp and a screenshot of what appeared to be a single ‘muzzle flash’ emitting from the room adjacent to Stephen Paddock’s 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite but now an independent ballistic analysis confirms the flash was, in fact, actual gunfire.
In the video, a flash can clearly be seen (at the 6:52-second mark) coming from room 32-134.
You can best view the flash by enlarging the video to ‘full screen.’
Here is a screenshot of the flash.
The following data was compiled by @jwillworld2000 on Twitter and reveals the flash was indeed an actual gunshot:
Keep in mind that many more shots were likely fired from that very same position but the number is unknown.
Based on the data we are seeing and video proof of muzzle flash it is safe to say that there was a shooter in room 32134 but it was not Paddock.
Additionally, as pointed out by the “HDRCFX Cornwall” YouTube channel, the venue did not appear to have 22,000 people inside it at the time of the massacre as reported by multiple news outlets. A number of 6000-7000 may be more reasonable for the Sunday night draw. It is not yet known if the dispute over turnout numbers has any significance.
A big hat tip to @StephAnnC on Twitter!
