Investigators Have Uncovered Las Vegas Shooter's Internet Search History--And The Details Are Chilling

By Collin Gossel

On Sunday, Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas from his hotel room in the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel and casino. He killed 58 and injured hundreds more, making the incident the deadliest shooting in modern American history. 

One thing that continues to confound authorities, however, is Paddock's motive for the attack. Still without a clear idea of why Paddock did what he did, investigators turned to his computer in the hopes of uncovering something substantial.

What they found may not have revealed the deranged man's motivation, but it offers a chilling glimpse into his mindset. Paddock was careful to cover his tracks, removing his hard-drive from the computer before or during the attack. 

And while the drive still hasn't been found, authorities were able to uncover his internet search history. 

According to the Independent:

Paddock's search history shows him looking for precise details about how Las Vegas police and SWAT would break into a shooter's room, an anonymous investigator told the Wall Street Journal.
