Fate of Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock’s Millions to Be Decided in Court

1510926768669Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter who killed 58 and injured many more from his room at the Mandalay Bay, died with over $5 million in assets. This figure includes money Paddock earned from real estate investments and winnings from gambling. Attorney Craig Eiland, who currently represents some of the victims, is asking the court to form a constructive trust to hold Paddock’s assets. The end-goal of such a measure would be to make sure the most severely injured and needy victims receive the bulk of Paddock’s estate.
