Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock shot himself the mouth: Autopsy report

We likey won't find out what motivated Stephen Paddock to shoot dead 58 country music fans from the window of a Las Vegas hotel room-the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history-for at least another nine months, if ever, the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in charge of probing the case reportedly revealed on Wednesday.

According to the December 21 report released by the Clark County Coroner's Office, Paddock died of a single gunshot to the mouth.

All 58 deaths were ruled homicides in the deadliest mass shooting in modern us history, authorities said.

Among the casualties in the deadliest mass shooting in present day US history, 21 individuals were shot in the head, 36 passed on with chest and back injuries and one kicked the bucket of a discharge to the leg, as indicated by a diagram the coroner discharged.

Stephen Paddock's death was ruled a suicide, Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg told The Associated Press.

Paddock's suicide came after he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history on October 1.

The shooting injured more than 500 people.

Jennifer Parks, 36, a kindergarten teacher from Palmdale, California, died from multiple gunshot wounds to the head.

Authorities also haven't said why they think he stopped shooting.

Most of those killed died from a single gunshot wound, according to the coroner's office.

"[Our report] is focusing a large part on the why, OK?" he told the Review-Journal.

He told the Review-Journal his team is "learning as much as we possibly can" about what motivated Paddock, adding that "various psychological and sociological" experts have been called in to work on the case. "Which is what everybody wants to know".

During a November interview with KLAS, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Paddock, a wealthy investor and gambler, had been losing money since 2015 leading to "bouts of depression".

Investigators still have 22,000 hours of surveillance and cell phone footage, and 250,000 photos to look though, the Review-Journal reported. "And again, the casinos, with their support, let us track down a lot of information of who may have had contact with that person".
