Vegas Shooting: TPTB Still Jerking Everyone Around

From Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge :
(LAS VEGAS) After months of radio silence, new information released earlier this week surrounding the investigation into Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock’s motive appears to have revived suspicions that another person was involved in the shooting.
The newly unsealed documents – which were unsealed by court order after journalists at the Las Vegas Review-Journal and other media sued – revealed that the FBI is seeking a “person of interest” named Douglas Haig. Haig’s name had not previously been connected to the shooting. What’s more, according to what’s been widely cited as his LinkedIn page, Haig had “DOD Top Secret clearance” and worked for top weapons manufacturers and specialized in Military Ammunition, as we pointed out.
Haig’s connection to Paddock and the shooting is unclear, but in another confusing development, Clark County Nevada Coroner John Fudenberg is defying a court order to release the full autopsy report for Paddock – even though Paddock’s body was cremated in December.
According to the Daily Caller, District Court Judge Timothy Williams ordered the coroner Tuesday to immediately release the autopsy. Fudenberg is conferring with others in his office, and no date had been given for his compliance with the judge’s order, the corner’s office told The Daily Caller.
The office also told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the report wouldn’t be released until it was “finalized.”
“The coroner’s office has fought to keep autopsy reports confidential,” according to the the Review-Journal.
It’s difficult to imagine what component of the autopsy could, at this point, be left unfinished; after all, Paddock’s body was destroyed weeks ago. And yet, the coroner has chosen to pay $32,000 in legal costs instead of turning over the final report.
“The shooter’s body was cremated Dec. 21. How can the autopsy report not be ‘finalized’ when the body was cremated more than five weeks ago?” Review-Journal Editor-in-Chief Keith Moyer publicly stated. “The law is squarely on the side of the public’s right to open government.”
An interim report released Jan. 8 gave only scant information about the autopsy and did not release either the autopsy or a toxicology report on Paddock.
“Preliminarily, the injuries noted were on the posterior of both calves and a gunshot wound to the upper palette inside the decedent’s mouth with obvious damage to the upper teeth,” the department stated.
“The cause of Paddock’s death was an internal gunshot wound and the manner of death was ruled a suicide,” the report concluded.
While the details so far largely comport with the early press reports, some say the initial report was suspiciously lacking in detail.
“What’s glaring are the missing details on the autopsy,” said Wayne Black, a 40-year veteran law enforcement and private security expert, in an interview with TheDCNF.
“This is probably one of the most significant medical examiner’s investigations of the year,” he said.
It’s been four months since the shooting, and still much remains vague or unknown. Paddock’s motives remain a mystery. Unanswered questions remain about the official timeline of events. Photos published online in the immediate aftermath of the shooting purported to show a second shooter closer to ground level, but they were largely dismissed by law enforcement and the media.

Other than a finding that there were two shots to the head, what would prompt the coroner to withhold releasing an autopsy report that was finished months ago?

This thing has stunk to high heaven since Day Zero, and four months later, the @$$clowns in charge still can't get their stories straight.

They have, however, released the autopsies on the 58 victims, with their names redacted.

I want to believe this was the act of a madman. However everything I've seen thus far makes me suspect everything we've been told.

This lunacy has to stop. Gawd, just give us the damn truth for once. Just this one time dammit.

How do you get 2 gunshots? The one stated through the upper palette and? The damage to the upper teeth could be the result of the first shot although entry woods are mostly not that damaging.
I agree that something stinks. That coroner should be arrested and hauled off to jail till he complies.

Wonder if the autopsy reads something like... "decedent apparently had expired several hours before delivering the gunshot to the upper palate..."

I don't get two gunshots.
What I'm wondering is what the coroner got.
Short of something that ridiculous for the Official Story, why delay releasing a done-deal report, on a guy who's already cremated?

>That coroner should be arrested and hauled off to jail
Not sure I want the coroner trapped in a place where he can be conveniently shanked...

So...nearly half a year afterward we still know three things;
1. buncha people in a crowd were shot and shot at
2. Dude was found dead in a hotel room
and all we get is "Wait, out"

Yup, that's about the size of it.

If Hillary had been elected, this would have occurred in Chicago.

58 shooting homicides in Chicago is just an average three-day weekend.

Bruises to the calves - classic nightstick move but doesn't match anything else - like the rest of this case
