Doctor: Vegas Killer Prescribed Anti-Anxiety Meds in June – Can Cause Paranoia

Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock was prescribed 50 diazepam tablets in June.

A retired FBI profiler, said in an interview that if Paddock’s self-inflicted suicide did not destroy his brain, experts could find some kind of neurological disorder or malformation.

Diazepam is a controlled substance and can cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment, and coordination.

FOX News reported:

Stephen Paddock, the gunman who opened fire on a crowd at a country music concert on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The paper, citing records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program, reported Tuesday that Paddock was prescribed 50, 10-milligram diazepam tablets by a physician on June 21. The brand name of the drug is Valium. The report said the drug could trigger aggressive behavior.

Authorities investigating the mass killing may look to a “psychological autopsy” to try to uncover what led Paddock to open fire into a crowd at a country music concert.

Jim Clemente, a retired FBI profiler, said in an interview that if Paddock’s suicide did not destroy his brain, experts could find some kind of neurological disorder or malformation.

“The genetics load the gun, personality and psychology aim it, and experiences pull the trigger, typically,” Clemente said. He pointed out that Paddock’s father — a bank robber — was diagnosed a psychopath.

As previously reported, crazed shooter Stephen Paddock slaughtered over 50 people Sunday night at a Las Vegas country western concert in a mass shooting.
Another 500+ people were injured.

Paddock set up a camera inside of his hotel room to film his shooting rampage. He also set up surveillance in the hallway to keep an eye on law enforcement closing in on him.
