“I hope the hell they find when they do they autopsy that there is a tumor in his head or something because if they don’t then we are all in trouble”
(INTELLIHUB) — Eric Paddock, the shook up brother of the alleged 64-year-old shooter Stephen Paddock who killed 59 people and injured over 525 others told reporters Tuesday from outside his Orlando residence that he absolutely can not fathom that his brother committed such a heinous crime.
The brother of the shooter said that he ‘prays’ that officials find out that the 68-year-old had a ‘brain tumor’ and said that if he didn’t then ‘we are all in trouble.’
“When Steve can do this, then we are in deep shit because there is just nothing there,” Eric said. “I hope the hell they find when they do they autopsy that there is a tumor in his head or something because if they don’t then we are all in trouble.”
The brother also told reporters that it was unlikely that Steve would have carried the guns and ammunition up to his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino himself and that if he was really the shooter than Steve likely paid a bellhop “$100” to do it, presuming that his brother was the shooter as reported.
Eric told the press that his brother was ‘no different than you and me’ and said that something must have happened which drove him ‘into the pit of hell.’
“I’m praying for at least some data points because otherwise, it’s the bug in the Men In Black put on a Steve suit and went and did this,” he said. “He didn’t plan this for 35-years.”
Eric said that no one from the FBI has contacted him as of yet nor has anyone from the Las Vegas Police Department.
