America was shaken on October 1st, when Stephen Paddock shot and killed nearly 60 people and injured more than 515 people in Las Vegas—now the deadliest shooting in history. After the 64-year-old gunman opened fire from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, too many loved ones were lost, leaving hearts broken across the nation.
The attack was aimed below at a country music festival, containing several parents, couples, friends, and children. Paddock shot and killed himself before authorities arrived at his location.
In his hotel suite, police discovered 23 firearms. Authorities also have reason to believe that Paddock actually intended to survive the attack and make his escape, given that over 50 pounds of explosives and more than 1,600 rounds of ammunition were found in his car.
Although it has been difficult to determine Paddock’s motive, little details continue to come forward as time goes on. In a newly released video, the gunman’s hairdresser revealed what he told her months before the mass shooting occurred.
Kallie Beig, his hair stylist from a local Nevada Great Clips, had seen him three times since the summer of 2015. Most recently, she cut his hair in the summer of 2017.
Beig didn’t see any red flags, but she described him as “memorable.” CNN analysts mentioned that his events and behavior leading up to the attack could contain vital information.
She stated, “I remember the last time I saw him. The last time I saw him was probably only two months ago...he came in and he got his haircut.”
He was reportedly with his girlfriend at the time, but she was not getting her hair done. Beig also emphasized that he “reeked like alcohol” despite the fact that she worked the early morning shift at the salon. As suspected, Paddock had usually been gambling all the evening before.
Beig continued, “He sat down and was telling me about her leaving to go to the Philippines and he was going to be home alone hanging out for a while by himself. It wasn’t anything weird or anything that seemed off.”
