Do you know why 58 people died in Las Vegas? (and many more injured?)  King Salman was in town at the Tropicana.  His Uncle (I believe) Prince al Waleed bin Talal,  owns several floors at Mandalay Bay and has controlling interests in Las Vegas.  He had his own private security network that operated in Las Vegas the weekend of the October 2, 2017.  It has been detected that Stephen Paddock possibly had a weapons streaming business through the Phillippines that benefitted Prince Al Waleed bin Talil.  There has been suspicion that there was a plot to overthrow the Saudi King Salman in Vegas that weekend, and country music massacre was just a smokescreen.

Al-Waleed is a grandson of Ibn Saud, the first Saudi king, a half-nephew of all Saudi kings since, and a grandson of Riad Al Solh (Lebanon's first minister).
He is the founder, chief executive officer and 95-percent owner[ of the Kingdom Holding Company, a Forbes Global 2000 company with investments in companies in the financial services, tourism and hospitality, mass media, entertainment, retail, agriculture, petrochemicals, aviation, technology and real-estate sectors. The company had a market capitalization of over $18 billion in 2013.  Al-Waleed is Citigroup's largest individual shareholder, the second-largest voting shareholder in 21st Century Fox, and owns Paris' Four Seasons Hotel George V and part of the Plaza Hotel.Time has called him the "Arabian Warren Buffett". In November 2017 Forbes listed Al-Waleed as the 45th richest man in the world, with an estimated net worth of $18 billion.
The previous year, he announced that he would donate his fortune to charity at an unspecified date. Some of the reasons he cited were to foster cultural understanding and empower women.
On 4 November 2017 he was arrested in Saudi Arabia, in an anti-corruption drive, together with, among others, Waleed bin Ibrahim Al Ibrahim and Saleh Abdullah Kamel. The allegations against Prince Al-Waleed include money laundering, bribery, and extorting officials.
