Malia Obama Stephen Paddock

Las Vegas sniper Stephen Paddock booked hotel rooms overlooking several major music festivals, including Lollapalooza in Chicago and Chance the Rapper’s Vegas concert in September.

The 64-year-old Nevada resident murdered 59 people at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday, Oct. 1. Police say he booked 2 adjoining rooms at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, where he built 2 sniper platforms overlooking the country music festival.

FBI agents have been pouring over his credit card receipts looking for prior intended targets.

One target was the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago, attended by Malia Obama.

Performers that weekend included Big Sean, Blink 182, Charli XCX, the Killers and Liam Gallagher.

Paddock reportedly booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel, overlooking Grant Park in Chicago where the Lollapalooza festival was held in August — 2 months before the massacre on the Vegas Strip.

Both rooms in Chicago offered the same view and were approximately the same shooting distance that Paddock had at the country music festival in Vegas — about 1,500 feet or the length of 5 football fields.

Gossip webloid TMZ says Paddock never showed up for those bookings in Chicago.

Paddock also tried to book rooms at the Ogden, a luxury condo tower that overlooked the Life is Beautiful open-air festival, where Chance the Rapper, Muse and Lorde performed in Las Vegas from September 22-24.

Chance is pictured above left with rappers Quavo Migos, center, and DJ Khaled (rear) at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on September 23 in Las Vegas.

An inside source told CBS the crazed mass murderer requested specific rooms overlooking the Life is Beautiful concerts in Vegas, but those rooms were unavailable.

Life is Beautiful was held about five-and-a-half miles northeast of Sunday’s massacre.

That same week, Paddock sent his live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, home to the Philippines to “spare her life,” according to her sisters.

Hotels and resorts are considering making changes to their booking policies, including denying specific room requests to travelers who try to book those rooms in advance.

  • Rayne

    Glad I stopped going to lollapallooza those crowds are super ridiculous. And when it’s over they destroy downtown.

  • dior bella

    Omg that is scary

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    More fake news and propaganda courtesy of the FBI and TMZ of course.

  • 2telldatruth

    Well it’s obviously clear he didn’t want to kill a bunch of black people because he knew there would be NO outrage. So he chose a target location that would get maximum exposure.

  • Justlooknout

    Interesting how HE chose not kill at Lollapalooza Music Festival, where African American are at high attendance.

  • Phillybruh

    I don’t see the outrage about killing a bunch of white folks either sure they are mad but Monday its back to business.

  • wiseone

    How do you know it’s fake? Could it be you are in denial?

  • Justlooknout

    Philly —- Good Morning! Now you know if Blacks were killed at such a large number, the President would not have flow to beside, made a statement. There would not be new coverage and they would have said his daddy was part of the Gorilla Gang, Blood or one of the America’s most wanted Crip.

  • Phillybruh

    I have to disagree, if this had happened to a large group of black people he would have had no choice but to go to the carnage its in his job description. Their would be the same coverage, Anderson Cooper would still be on the ground milking it for all its worth.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    We still cant get a clear picture of this looney tune.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Where is the proof? It’s a report with no substance. You aren’t that wise if you believe a TMZ gossip report.

  • MookieFly

    Interesting. And conveniently placed. He didn’t use a dummy card for the rooms?
    You think he would cover his tracks better than that. amateur serial killer or planted info?

  • Ni Ni

    Performers are going to be singing behind bullet proof glass soon.

  • wiseone

    Did I say I believed it. Where is the proof that it’s fake news?

  • Justlooknout

    They would give it two days. They would have moved on to something else.

    The coverage is not the same for blacks and whites.

  • Phillybruh

    I mean they are just milking this, you all are acting like they haven’t moved back to what’s going on with Russia and the elections already. And whose next to leave the Whitehouse.

  • tintin

    he wasn’t gonna shoot up black people , he wanted more impact. While we care for our blacks,whitey don’t and there are way more whites in the world than black.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I really don’t have the time today. Kick rocks.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yeah it would be in the 7 day news cycle then something else would happen to distract the media…it would be there but not as much outrage. I agree…

  • Ni Ni

    He might not be a racist; asian girlfriend, just crazy as hell. He just wanted use all those guns.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I silently nodded in agreement with you. For some reason 58 blacks would not be plastered all over the media. It would probably be dismissed as some thugs shot up the place.

  • stav

    Sorry but whites would be the minorities of the World, the world consists of the majority of POC.

  • Miss Thang

    exactly. After Sandy Hook, I realized nothing will ever change in this country. I just have to get the hell out of here.

  • tintin

    you’re right. i mean in America.

  • Phillybruh

    He did it because he could that is all the motive he needed. Now people won’t take from this what they need to take from this. I mean he showed white people that in the grand scheme of things your lives don’t matter much either because the govt who is supposed to do something will not on your behalf.

  • Karen Brady

    Now anytime folks ask for a certain view when booking rooms we’re going to get the side-eye. No more beachfront view people!

  • Ms.Vanilla

    And if you want the same room you had for your honeymoon forget it.

  • Karen Brady

    Girl!! Right.. may I ask why you are requesting that specific room number? Oh I see It’s unavailable. Yeah okay.

  • Yardgirl

    He did it because he could that is all the motive he needed
    ************************************
    Real talk!! ^^^

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    They’ve don’t have a picture of this man drunk at a gambling table or holding one of his 42 firearms?

    They always find the most unflattering pics of black people but he gets a picture smiling or dreaming in a blissful state. Looking very friendly and gentle…

  • Waya Hedia

    He still looks like a dick though.

  • Justlooknout

    unforunately I watch CNN alot and just last night they had a Town Hall with drunk Nancy Peolosi. I want to see a town hall on police shooting of blacks.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    He was like anybody can get it!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    The pic doesn’t say “thug” that is often pinned on blacks. Anyone can be a dick. Hell, there are many on this blog.

  • Mark mcharm

    I mean this is not the first time with those people so nothing will change if mcveigh who blew up children they should have known that it will be another white guy shooting up his workplace in about another two weeks and that will be number 234.

  • Waya Hedia

    You guys can stop trying so hard to make this about race. He doesn’t have as mug shot. He’s dead. Whining incessantly with hypotheticals about black this white this is childish and stupid.

  • Mark mcharm

    Does anyone rrally believe what the fbi says they are habitual liars and will do anything to paint a narrative.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    You must be one of them… please feed the BS to someone else that will eat it.

  • Phillybruh

    I mean if Sandy hook meant nothing then no tragedy will change them.

  • wiseone

    Neither do I – scat!

  • wiseone

    All of these site are gossip sites – you are not smart enough to know that. Where the hell is your proof?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    The white female on CNN made a nasty reference to the killer’s non-white girlfriend.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    If would have made the news, just like the young white guy who shot and killed the Black people during the church prayer meeting. The media reported it, but there wasn’t outrage, and we didn’t get to know the victims the way we have in this instance or others with less numbers of fatalities!

    Black news or celebrity just isn’t the same because of the value placed on non-Americans, only white people are truly considered Americans, sorry to say!

  • Waya Hedia

    Trayvon. They used his pic as a 12 year old and suppressed his online profiles. Your lies are easy to debunk.

    “You must be one of them. ”

  • Rhyme and Reason

    EXACTLY! He planted info…it is creating more terrorism after his blood bath. He wanted to keep the news stories spinning, he left them with plenty of dead ends as to WHY he did it or why he chose the Country Music Festival.

    He wanted to be famous, infamous, legendary, even in this dark manner!

    He got the crowd he wanted, the NRA card carrying crowd, those who salute the confederate flag, many Trump supporters, in the midst of one of the world’s largest entertainment epicenter to create ongoing terrorism with all the large festivals, law enforcement watching for potential copycat perpetrators, etc.!

    DOMESTIC TERRORISM

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    So true!!! The white female reporter on CNN was so nasty when she gave a report on his non-white girlfriend.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    According to Bill O’Reilly these massacres are the price of freedom–gun nuts being able to kill whoever they want and as many as they want.

    That pretty much supports the ambivalence of the public toward reigning in the out of control gun nuttery in this country.

  • Waya Hedia

    sue her.

  • ShWa

    But he chose who he chose to kill, end of story…..

  • TheOwley

    There is no way this guy acted alone. There are others involved. The arsenal in his room would have taken some effort to bring up there.

  • Harley

    Can we please refer to him as the TERRORIST he is???
    Also why choose that pic of Malia? So hateful…

  • Harley

    Exactly and he is a TERRORIST not a shooter

  • Elevated Soul

    Targeted?…..

    Perhaps he was there with his fellow Antifa crew or perhaps he was there to meet them,to discuss the guns exchanged/strategy because clearly he didn’t shoot anyone there in those “Pro Antifa crowds”…

  • Harley

    THIS!!!!! The government plots and creates these domestic and foreign terrorists to instill fear and make people want gun control so they can enforce martial law. People are SO blind they do not get it. There was more than 1 shooter ….

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    That’s Sandra purposely choosing those pics. You know she’s a #45 supporter.

  • ShWa

    Absolutely, he did what he did and chose who he chose didn’t matter who it was….

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    This post is stupid and anyone who falls for the fukkery is stoopid too. Next post!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Looks like I need to sue you!!! She showing HER ignorance is pitiful enough.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So Sandra found a way to include Malia Obama in this post.

    Does this mean that Sandra is officially cyberstalking Malia again?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    You must of not seen the pics they have of him smoking a blunt that is plaster all over ?

    And the boy didn’t do any crime comparable to this man above.

    The only lies told are the kumbaya rhetoric people like you spit when there is clearly injustice in the world. I despise folks like you. If you want to do something helpful to the cause ADMIT that there is injustice so that we can promote change.

    Good day, I’m not really in a good mood if you can’t tell and I don’t have the time to play into your f—kery.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I wonder where Malia gets her bone structure, she favors her mother but her face is much longer, no cheekbones.

  • ShWa

    I never go to Lolla either too many people and it always rains and gets muddy and messy out there!

  • Evillene

    Majority culture would have no empathy if victims were black. I doubt we’d see the same wall-to-wall news coverage and law enforcement investigation would be much slower. Trump would have sent Omarosa to meet the survivors.

  • Mischelle

    She definitely favors her mother. I’ve always said she is her mom’s twin and Sasha looks just like dad. Never understood the people who questioned if those girls were birthed by Michelle

  • EMILY POST

    Mentally ill man was determined. He wasn’t too crazy booking all those hotel he knew exactly what he was doing.

  • Rayne

    This was in the 90’s I think that was levers or Johnny kemp. I’ll never go again tho

  • Waya Hedia

    Meh…

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Typically response. Leave me alone…

  • MookieFly

    Oh wow haven’t thought about it like that

  • Keesh5000

    Genetics is a funny thing….

  • AriesSun

    Trayvon was the typical kid on social media. He was also the typical unarmed kid trying to get home.He did not deserve to be killed because a racist wanted to use him for sport.RIP Trayvon.

  • AriesSun

    He showed conservative whites,their lives don’t matter to liberal whites.

  • Waya Hedia

    sorry.. that’s a lie.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No, sir. Just doing my job.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That was the first pic I saw, hun.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    LOL…

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Somebody is lying.

    How a taco eating beer drinking gambling be able to orchestrated all of this by himself and no one would pick on anything…
    How you move all the bags full of weapon and no one sees you?? Or think that is a bit much?? That means he would be planning this for years. Even the best at the army don’t shoot that good to injure 500 people…

    Jason Bourne or Mission Impossible?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So Malia was the only person who has ever attended Lollapalooza?

  • Karen Brady

    Y’all a mess

  • Karen Brady

    Trying to get home. RIP TRAYVON.

  • Karen Brady

    I didn’t read it..they said he was a taco eater? The FBI uncovered that?

  • You already know ?

    Right ????

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Why a country show though? Those country ppl are peaceful ppl..

  • T3

    What kind of show/people do you think would have been fitting??? ???

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    How would I know? My question is why he chose a country show. He could’ve chosen a rap show and I’d still ask the same question, so I don’t know what you’re getting at.

  • T3

    I wasn’t getting at anything. I asked a question based on your statement. You said country ppl are peaceful. As if other groups of people aren’t peaceful and would have been more deserving. Thanks for the clarity.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    If you want to die: KILL YOURSELF and leave others that want to live ALONE!

  • AriesSun

    What lie? There is no excuse for what that racist did to Trayvon. Clearly you believe the word of a killer but I don’t..

    I wish he would fall in a portable toilet.
