(Fox News) Investigators believe Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock hired a prostitute in the days leading up to the massacre, according to an official briefed by federal law enforcement officials.
The investigators are interviewing other prostitutes for information, the official told Associated Press. While prostitution is legal in remote areas of Nevada, it is not legal on the Strip, where he was staying.
The massive investigation has failed to uncover Paddock’s motive for the rampage Sunday night that killed 58 people. The 64-year-old Paddock was armed with 24 weapons and thousands of rounds of ammo when he opened fire on a country music festival from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Vegas strip.
