LV Shooter’s Laptop Recovered but Missing Hard Drive, Investigators Baffled

The investigation into the infamous Las Vegas attack has just taken one of its most bizarre turns — and in a situation where almost none of the official story makes much sense, that’s saying a lot.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that a laptop recovered from the hotel suite of accused shooter Stephen Paddock is completely missing its hard drive.

The laptop was expected to provide important clues about Paddock’s motivation, or perhaps direct evidence of what led up to the shooting from inside the Mandalay Bay hotel room.

“Paddock is believed to have removed the hard drive before fatally shooting himself, and the missing device has not yet been recovered,” ABC News reported.

New Census Finds That ‘Average Canadian’ Looks Like Anyone In The World

Increasingly, the face of the average Canadian is anything but average.

There was plenty of diversity on display in Wednesday’s deposit of Statistics Canada census data, including 250 different ethnic origins across the country, and hints of more to come: visible minorities could comprise fully one-third of Canadians by 2036 as immigration drives population growth not just in the cities, but across the country.

True. Most of the world is brown.
