Coroner: Paddock's autopsy complete; brain tissue being sent to Stanford University for study

LAS VEGAS - The Clark County Coroner said the autopsy on mass shooting gunman Stephen Paddock has been performed and is done, but more tests have to be performed.

"An autopsy has been completed on the suspect Stephen Paddock. Multiple forensic analyses will be performed on Paddock, including a neuropathological examination of brain tissue at the Stanford University Department of Pathology, which is one of the County Coroner’s contracted neuropathology laboratories.  At this time, we do not have an estimated completion date for the additional analyses.
The family of the suspect is aware of his current location, but we are not making that location public at this time due to security concerns."

According to Metro Police, the gunman, Paddock, shot and killed 58 people at a country music festival on Oct. 1. He fired his shots from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. A total of 546 other people were injured.
