As we approach the three-month anniversary since the October tragedy, big questions still loom over the investigation, the shooter, and the motive. Metro Police and the F.B.I. have withheld surveillance video and other evidence, and even fought in court to keep the original search warrant secret, but all that could change very soon. The I-Team’s George Knapp sat down with former Clark County District Attorney David Roger to get his take on how the investigation has been managed so far.
Former Clark County District Attorney David Roger elaborates, “You know it’s a difficult balance; you saw Sheriff Lombardo, I thought he did a phenomenal job reassuring the public that this was not an extended terrorist attack, that there weren’t more and more people involved. He provided information, but what you saw is that he got caught in a trap in which he provided information that turned out not to be correct. I think that Sheriff Lombardo felt that he gave enough information to make the public feel secure and now he’s going to finish a thorough, entire investigation. I think this is one of the reasons why they have shut down the media release on this attack thus far.”
He continues, “In these types of investigation, a lot of information is gleamed from cell phone records and internet usage; they follow up and interview all of the people that the shooter spoke with in order to ascertain that nobody else was involved in any way. The investigative leads have to all be covered to make sure the ones that are faulty are deemed as such.”
