LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock reportedly does not appear to have the brain abnormalities that police expected to find, according to an examination by doctors who have begun his autopsy.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal spoke to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, a familiar face to those who watched the news immediately after the shooting and beyond, and the sheriff said preliminary examination of Paddock’s brain did not yield any abnormalities.
“All those things that you would expect to find, we have not found,” he said.

“I’m hoping they cut open his brain and find something. There’s a data point missing,” Eric Paddock said after finding out that his brother had murdered 58 people and wounded hundreds more.
That data point is still missing, but the Review-Journal did note two other important things: Authorities don’t yet know the toxicology results, and Dr. Steven Winkler reportedly prescribed Paddock an anti-anxiety drug as recently as June.
