Hard Drive Missing From Las Vegas Shooter's Laptop

Bruce Paddock the younger brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested for child porn at an assisted living center in North Hollywood California on Wednesday

A laptop found in Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock's hotel room was missing its hard drive - depriving officials of possible clues on why he unleashed his attack, ABC News reports.

Earlier this month, Paddock's brother, Stephen, opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers on the Las Vegas Strip, killing at least 58 people and injuring more than 500 before taking his own life.

Bruce Paddock has not been booked yet, but the official tells PEOPLE charges are expected to be filed sometime today. His father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was a notorious bank robber who was on the FBI's Most Wanted list for almost a decade. Investigators also discovered that Paddock had purchased software created to erase files from a hard drive, but it is not yet known if the software was used.

"I don't know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else".

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department told the Los Angeles Times the arrest of Bruce Paddock was unrelated to the ongoing investigation into the Las Vegas massacre. The LAPD is the leading agency in this case.

USA authorities have been in contact with the shooter's Australian girlfriend, Marilou Danley, and have met with Paddock's other brother, Eric.
