A lawsuit brought on by the Las-Vegas review journal found that mass killer Stephen Paddock was jacked up on anti-anxiety drugs when he killed 58 people and wounded 851, shooting them from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay onto the Route 91 Harvest music festival taking place below on 1 October 2017.

Large amounts of nordiazepam, oxazepam, and temazepam (which, when mixed together make up the effects of the anti-anxiety drug Valium) could be found in the body’s urine according to the toxicology report. Mr. Paddock’s corpse did not have any substances associated with alcohol in his bloodstream.

The autopsy report, performed on October 6, 2017, was prepared by Dr. Lisa Gavin of the Clark County coroner’s office.

It shows that at the time of the shooting, 64-year-old Mr Paddock was suffering from hypertensive cardiovascular disease and that he was overweight.

Police are still looking for a possible motive for the shooting and speculation about mental or physical health conditions that might have provided clues to his violent behaviour have been floated all over the internet.
