Scientists to study Vegas shooter’s brain

KFI: The brain of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock will be sent to Stanford University for a months-long examination, after a visual inspection during an autopsy found no abnormalities.

Doctors will examine the brain tissue to see if it had any neurological problems. It’s scheduled to arrive at Stanford soon, and researchers have been instructed to spare no expense for the work.

Experts will try to determine if 64-year-old Paddock suffered from health problems such as strokes, blood vessel diseases, tumors, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, degenerative disorders, physical trauma and infections.

If a disease is found, experts say it would be false science to conclude that it caused Paddock to commit the massacre, even if it does ease people’s minds.  more here

  1. I’d be more interested to find out if he really did convert to Islam. But they will never delve into that aspect of this case.

  2. He was just another hateful leftist who despised conservatives to the point of insanity. Steve Scalise shooter on steroids.

    That’s why media dropped the story. Maybe Muslim convert, but I doubt it.

  3. The principal malfunctions were caused by electrical impulses while living. There is no advantage to studying the brain after death, in this case!

  4. ME: The brain has suffered massive damage from a gunshot wound, we feel this was the cause of his behavior.
    LVSD: We knew that stupid!
    ME: He also had hemorrhoids, does that help?
    LVSD: I give.

  5. Nope.
    Get ready for it: They find normally aged brain matter with perhaps a normal age-related disorder.

    Before you know it, you’re ‘disqualified’ from having a weapon because your BP was a little too high at the doc’s office… ACA opened the door for such reporting.

  6. I’d start the autopsy by looking for the number 13 tattoo on his neck. If it’s not there you have the wrong corpse.

  7. This is all about blaming the gun not the shooter. They will find no physical cause so it must be the guns fault. You watch.
