A Las Vegas prostitute who was hired by mass murderer Stephen Paddock has spoken about their ‘violent’ sex sessions and how he bragged about having ‘bad blood’.
The woman, who has spoken anonymously about how they would spend hours drinking and gambling, describing him as ‘paranoid’ and ‘obsessive’.
He would boast about his bank robber father who escaped from jail on New Year’s Eve in 1968.
In text messages shown to The Sun he wrote:
I didn’t have anything really to do with him but the bad streak is in my blood.
I was born bad.
The revelations come less than a week after the fatal event in Las Vegas, where Paddock killed 59 and wounded over 500 more.
The 27-year-old, who doesn’t want her identity to be known, is said to have seen Paddock around nine times between November 2015 and June 2016, when he visited Las Vegas without his girlfriend Marilou Danley.
Paddock would rant about conspiracy theories, including claiming 9/11 was an inside job by the US government and after hitting winning streaks, would take the escort back to his room for ‘really aggressive and violent sex’, including rape fantasies, she said.
She was paid $6,000 by Paddock for each meeting and had text messages in which he described tying her up.
The woman continued:
He had a dark and twisted side.
But even so, I could never have imagined he would do something like this.
She ended her contact with Paddock when she started a new relationship.
The claims have been made after family members revealed Paddock often met with prostitutes on his regular trips to the city.
Investigators revealed Paddock may have hired a prostitute in the days leading up to the massacre and are interviewing other escorts in the hopes of finding a motive for the worst mass shooting in modern US history.
A note found close to Paddock’s body first believed to be a suicide note, has been decoded by authorities.
It was found to contain calculations on the slaughter, which killed 59 civilians, guiding his aim to ‘increase his number of kills’.
In an interview airing Sunday on CBS’ 60 Minutes three police officers who stormed Stephen Paddock’s hotel room in the Mandalay Bay hotel tell correspondent Bill Whitaker new details about the deadliest mass shooting.
Officer David Newton recalled:
I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was going to be for the crowd.
So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.
Further details about Stephen Paddock were released today as his younger brother Eric Paddock, spoke out about his sibling’s habits – Eric recalled his brother’s personality, dubbing the Mesquite, Nevada local, the ‘King of Microagression’.
Paddock – a regular at hazy smoke-filled casinos, usually kept a cigar at hand – even though he did not smoke.
However investigators are yet to determine Stephen’s motive, with Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill saying:
We have looked at everything, literally, to include the suspect’s personal life, any political affiliation, his social behaviours, economic situation, any potential radicalisation.
We have been down each and every single one of these paths, trying to determine why, to determine who else may have known of these plans.
Paddock’s murderous actions have sparked debate about gun control across the country.
The investigations continue.
