The motive behind Stephen Paddock’s slaughter of 58 people at Las Vegas’ Route 91 Harvest music festival remains a mystery 10 months after the deadliest mass shooting in US history, according to a final criminal investigative report.

“The goal of our investigation all along has been to provide the public with the clearest picture possible of the events leading up to” the shooting last year, “as well as motive,” Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Friday.

“What we have been able to answer are the questions of who, what, when, where, and how. What we have not been able to answer definitively is the why Stephen Paddock committed this act.”

On October 1, the reclusive high-stakes gambler opened fire on the popular outdoor music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds.

Lombardo on Friday released the 187-page, final criminal investigative report on the massacre from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

After the slaughter, Paddock, 64, was found dead on the floor of his hotel room with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Police found at least 23 weapons inside the room, including multiple rifles, some with scopes. At least one rifle may have been altered to function as an automatic weapon, a law enforcement official said.

The final report concluded that he acted alone.

Here's a link to the report discussed if anyone wants to read it:
Yeah, I should warn others, it shows the body and it's bloody, so don't click on it if you don't want to see that stuff.

You don't need a motive to be mentally ill which I suspect Paddock was.

People usually do, Dylan managed to hide his depression from his family and friends, he only opened up about it to a few people. When the Police visited Elliot Rodger they said afterwards that he was a "nice, polite guy."

I mainly meant the fact Paddock left nothing behind at all. Nothing that would give any insight on why he planned and carried out the attack.

While the others left behind clues, videos, journals, etc. saying why or offering something that could be used to determine a motive. Paddock is just a blank.

That is true, I guess the real motive will never be known, like with a lot of Mass Shootings.

I honestly don't believe Paddock was mentally ill in the traditional sense. I'm also a bit intrigued by the fact that not only did he leave behind no written evidence as to his motives or inner mental state, he left behind not a single red flag. Nothing to indicate he was remarkable in any way. While most mass shooting do not have a clear motive, almost every time you can make an educated guess based on the killer's life and interactions with others. With Paddock there is next to nothing.

Didn't Paddock leave a Facebook post a few minutes before the attack?

Exactly my thoughts as well.

The only thing that could even be considered suspect was the fact Paddock and his brothers seemed to have a thing for child porn, and even that has never been worked out enough to suggest it may have caused the attack.
