Las Vegas Mass Murderer's Brain Removed for Microscopic Study

By TheBlast Staff

The man who viciously killed 58 people and injured more than 500 had his brain removed during an autopsy for further study, which hints that cops still haven't found a motive.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo held a press conference Friday and said Stephen Paddock's brain was removed during autopsy and exhibited no visual signs of abnormality.

Lombardo says Paddock's brain has been shipped to a facility for a microscope evaluation to determine if they can see any abnormalities on the smallest of levels.

It's interesting, Lombardo also said investigators have "no intelligence or evidence the suspect was linked or had affiliation with any known terrorist groups or ideologies," and "do not believe there is one particular event in the suspect’s life for us to key in on."

Basically, it sounds like officials are still searching for answers as to why Paddock carried out the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

On autopsy on suspect's brain: "It is yet to be known whether there were any abnormalities to be presented." Further tests taking place.
