Brother of Las Vegas Shooter ARRESTED For Child Porn

Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department said Wednesday that they had arrested the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock on suspicion of possessing “over 600 images of child pornography.”

Bruce Douglas Paddock, 59, was arrested in North Hollywood on a 20-count felony complaint related to possession of child pornography and the sexual exploitation of children, according to a news release.

Authorities had been tipped off that Bruce was in possession of illegal content showing minors in sexual situations a while back, but were unable to locate him for some time. Only after Stephen’s mass murder-suicide was Bruce found living in an assisted living facility in LA. Details are hazy at the moment, but the FBI apparently checked out his computer and found enough proof to arrest him.

Bruce Paddock had been a patient at Four Seasons Healthcare & Wellness Center in the Valley Village area of Los Angeles. A manager declined to comment on Wednesday, citing patient confidentiality, but a patient outside said he once shared a room with Paddock and was shocked.

“He was a psych patient,” Cleveland Simpson, 64, told the Daily News. “He kept on saying, ‘It’s too much medicine. They’re giving me too much medicine.’ But he needed it.”
