My theory on LV Shooter

Ok, there are some scattered bits and pieces about the guy's personality but you already jumped into his ideology and are speculating about his political or ideological cause. His own brother emphatically said he didn't have any.

Now, since you already provide your theories, let me offer you mine:

The guy is a high functioning psychopath who got bored out of his mind. Such psychos have high IQ - see how he amassed money with relative ease and was even winning big against "the house". Few can do it. Also, he should be able to hide his real nature by pretending to have human emotions which he learned to do at young age, by mimicking reactions of those around him.

A few more facts to corroborate this:
- father was a criminal and was considered psychopatic and suicidal by experts
- Paddock himself kept his family at a distance, although he seems to have been on good terms with them

(Now, the above alone would mean nothing but combined with other things paint a different picture. Occasional phone calls to family and that was it, probably to prevent them from busting his cover and to do his thing undisturbed. I wouldn't be surprised if they find more crimes from his past that were unsolved because he was skillful in covering his tracks.)

Psychopaths have only a few rudimentary emotions, which are actually more impulses, like boredom, lust, contempt and rage. They are able to hide or control them. However, it probably costs them. So in the end they unleash their wrath.

On Amazon there is a book of a woman named Ann Rule who knew Ted Bundy - they were working together

This has eerie similarities with the account of Paddock's female coworker in real estate biz. She describes him as easygoing, amicable, helpful and highly competent. Who wouldn't want to work with that person.

Anyway, if they don't find any other crimes committed by him now they are scrutinizing his life, my theory is probably wrong. But if they do, I'm spot on. It's difficult to believe that this guy has lived to be over 60 and that this is the first truly evil thing he's done.
