October 1, 2017 (9:29pm-9:33pm), Mandalay Bay Hotel: Implications of Las Vegas Shooter’s Recorded Hotel Room Door Lock Activity

Door lock interrogations of rooms 32-134 and 32-135 of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, then assigned to accused shooter Stephen Paddock, performed subsequent to the mass casualty shooting event at the Las Vegas Village, Route 91 Harvest Festival of October 1, 2017, are assessed here. Door lock event times and descriptions are presented here as provided within the LVMPD’s post event report “LVMPD Criminal Investigative Report of the 1 October Mass Casualty Shooting”.

According to the said LVMPD post event report, "No evidence exists to indicate Paddock conspired with or acted in collusion with anyone else." With a room key user possessing Paddock’s room key, apparently in the hallway outside of Paddock’s cited rooms between 9:31pm and 9:33pm (32 minutes before the shooting began) and with no apparent evidence of entry into either of these two adjoining rooms by a key user between the same 9:31pm to 9:33pm period, who opened the door to room 32-135 at 9:33pm from the inside?

Because the recorded event times are not more specific than increments of minutes, it is impossible to know which 9:29pm door events take place first - room 32-134 or room 32-135. The 9:29pm sequence of events (#1 - #5 and #6 - #9) at rooms 32-134 and 32-135 are interchangeable, without affecting the outcome that unfolds during events #10 - #16. A copy of the said report is linked at the bottom of this review. A room schematic is embedded at the bottom of this review.
