Stephen Paddock’s hotel records show three women registered in his room

LAS VEGAS — Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) records from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Communication Center released Wednesday indicate that gunman Stephen Paddock had three females registered to his room.

Those records also indicate that the LVMPD was fully aware 11:02 p.m. on October 1, 2017 that Paddock had checked into the Mandalay Bay on Sept. 25, 2017.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo who runs the LVMPD originally told the media that Paddock’s check-in date was Sept. 28, 2017.  It was not until the October 9, 2017 press briefing that Lombardo said that they had information that Paddock checked in on Septemeber 25, and that he had previously told the media that Paddock had checked in on September 28.

Stephen Paddock

Lombardo said on Oct. 9, “We are trying to confirm his actions between the 25thand the 28th.”  “I’m under the belief he was not occupying the room between those dates.”

The police also told the media that Marilou Danley’s name was also on the registration, however, they never stated that there were three females registered to Paddock’s room.

The CAD records released last week indicate:

23:02:36 798/ Update units in control room 32 Room 135 Poss suspect name of PADDOCK, STEPHEN There 3 females in room [name redacted] #2 [name redacted] #3 [name redacted] [bo]oked on 9-25 to check out Oct 2nd.

That information provided to the LVMPD Communications Center came from 798 which is a sergeant’s number.  Police protocol would dictate that the hotel registration records would have been checked that would have provided the guest check-in history.

Why Lombardo stated a week after the October 1 Massacre that they had just uncovered that information is unknown.

With the release of the CAD records last week we now learn that there was a total of three females registered to the room. One of the three could be Danley, however before the records were released all three names were redacted.

All this indicates is that there were three females on the registration.  We do not know currently if anyone other than Paddock was in his rooms during his stay, however, this would indicate that other possible suspects were known to the police since October 1.

What we do know from the body worn camera footage that was released three weeks ago that when the police breached Paddock’s suite at 11:20 p.m. on October 1, Paddock was found dead inside the room alone.

The LVMPD Press Information Officer, Larry Hadfield told the Baltimore Post-Examiner on Friday that they would not be commenting on any of the records being released.

Another CAD entry

02:37:41 25/ This PR [name redacted] said is OFCR out of CA/ Susp Marilou Danley DTR’s [redacted] has a follower on FB who has Islamic writing on it and shows beheadings and seems to be ISIS follower.

(The number 25 is console 25 at the LVMPD Communications Center.  PR is person reporting. Officer out of California.  Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend was a suspect at that time.  DTR is daughter.  FB is Facebook.)

The LVMPD and the FBI have stated that they have found no link to terrorism.

Authors Note:  After the October 1 massacre questioned centered on why Marilou Danley’s Facebook account was closed prior to her name being released by the police as a suspect.  Both Stephen Paddock and Danley’s name and address were broadcasted on the unencrypted police channel by the SWAT officer who had breached the suite shortly after the room was cleared.  That information was not only heard by locals with scanners but the real-time LVMPD communications that night was also being broadcasted internationally by several online websites that broadcast police frequencies in real time.
