Vegas shooter's dad allegedly robbed Phoenix bank, on FBI Most Wanted list

Las Vegas Shooter Moved To Nevada For Video Poker, Brother Says

The father of the man suspected of carrying out the Las Vegas mass shooting was arrested in OR in 1978 after appearing on the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock first garnered the FBI's attention after he robbed two Arizona banks in three separate incidents in 1959 and 1960.

Even though Paddock's father was a notorious fugitive bank robber, law enforcement officials can not explain what would motivate the gambler with no known criminal record to cause such a massacre.

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was added on June 10, 1969, and remained on the list for eight years. He had been sentenced to 20 years following a bank robbery conviction, according to a 1978 newspaper article in the Eugene Register.

Who is the perpetrator of the deadliest mass shooting in US history?

He lived in a new cookie-cutter house in Mesquite, Nevada, 129 kilometres northeast of Las Vegas.

There is no doubt the majority of the people do not want independence. "It's not a state like Kosovo", Mr Borrell told the crowd. He did not rule out suspending Catalonia's regional autonomy - a move that could risk sparking unrest.

It describes the scene at the Paddock home just after Patrick Paddock was arrested, as three-year-old Patrick Jr., 18-month-old Bruce, and six-month-old Eric "cluttered distractedly underfoot as Mrs. Paddock showed the three Federal Bureau of Investigation agents" around.

Eric Paddock, left, with his brother, Stephen Craig Paddock. According to his other son, Eric Paddock, not much. Nine years later, Patrick was caught in OR, living under yet another name. Paddock reportedly settled the charges for $623,000.

"Since he has utilised firearms in previous crimes, has employed violence in attempting to evade arrest and has been diagnosed as being psychopathic, Paddock should be considered extremely risky", Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Palmer Baken Jr said at the time. The following spring, Stephen Paddock was born.

Stephen Paddock, 64, was found dead in his hotel room on Monday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said.

Talking outside his home in Waterford Lakes in east Orange County, Eric Paddock said he had no explanation for his brother's shooting rampage Sunday night. We did not know him. "There's absolutely no sense, no reason he did this".
