My theory on LV Shooter 2

Continued from My Theory on LV Shooter

- several more things indicating this guy may be a high functioning psychopath
- also some more facts showing it was him who did it (he wasn't a patsy)

From more articles found on yahoo news:

Ms Danley (Paddock's girlfriend) has told investigators she had not seen indications Paddock could become violent.

Detectives believe Paddock may have been with a prostitute in the days before the massacre and have been questioning local sex workers.

In a possible sign he was contemplating massacres at other sites, he also booked rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in August and the Life Is Beautiful show near the Las Vegas Strip in late September, according to authorities.

Paddock also bought 1,000 rounds of.308-calibre and .223-caliber tracer ammunition from a private buyer he met at a Phoenix gun show, a law enforcement official said.
The home was first searched Monday by Las Vegas police, who said they found 19 guns and several pounds of potentially explosive materials at the house that Paddock bought in early 2015.
Paddock reportedly purchased firearms at Guns & Guitars, a gun shop in Mesquite, Nevada.

From CBS
CBS Boston reports Paddock also searched for hotel rooms near Boston's Fenway Park and concert venues in the city. There is no evidence he actually traveled to Boston.
Officer David Newton from the Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 unit said he noticed a note on the shooter's nightstand once officers breached the room...

"I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd," Newton said. "So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there."

- him being with a prostitute follows the psycho pattern - superficial relationships, since he's incapable of and not interested in building the lasting ones. Him buying a house Phillipines and a car for Danley indicates she was a "kept woman" who he probably used as a cover up, and she may not have been aware of it.

- his long term planning (buying a large number of guns in the early 2015) and booking rooms in different locations in US confirm that he did it alone. They even traced him moving around Vegas on 200 occasions and he was alone each time.

- also, he probably planned to kill himself after the shooting. Why else would he buy guns in a regular shop instead of procuring them on the black market.

The police already searched his house twice. I'd search again and this time do some gardening i.e. digging deeper. Literally.

If a theory that he did it as a high functioning psycho, bored to death and wanted that final thrill is correct, then I can imagine that type having his fun for years before this by planning and executing small scale "perfect crimes" or similar ****, which didn't include him dealing with cosequences. Like shooting individuals from a distance ("stray" bullets, unsolved shooting crimes). Or something else that is "impersonal". I wonder what his knowledge of chemistry was.

(Yes, I read too much Agatha Christie in my teenage years. And of course, this all may be just me pretending to be a detective while occupying an armchair.)

    Why ls LVMPD silent? Why no video footage? Why did FBI stand so close to Sheriff Lombardo during the few press conferences we did get in OCT and tell him what to say and what not to? If the guy S.P. is so crazy why did the CEO of MGM (and about 15 hotels on strip) sell 80% of his stock 3 weeks prior? George Soros and others did similar. Why were they betting in huge numbers the stock would go down? If you have an answer for all these questions I can take your theory more seriously. I have not been online for a long time, so sorry if this was already addressed.
