Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department lawyers say criminal charges related to the Oct. 1 massacre may be coming in the next 60 days, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The disclosure came at a court hearing on whether search warrant records pertaining to the Las Vegas shooting investigation should be unsealed. Metro attorneys argued that the documents should remain sealed because they may be used to support charges related to the investigation. They did not say who may face charges or what the charges may be. After Stephen Paddock killed 58 concertgoers before killing himself, law enforcement officials have identified no other suspects, though Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was identified as a person of interest.
Danley has said that Paddock “never said anything to me — or took any action that I was aware of — that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.” In court Tuesday, Review-Journal attorney Maggie McLetchie said, “The press has an important role in being able to get access to this warrant information and help the public understand what occurred in regard to what warrants law enforcement got, what came back and what the actual facts are. The horrific incidents of 1 October were over three months ago. The public still has many, many questions.”
