Tuesday Crime Stories: What triggered Las Vegas massacre? Florida teacher charged with abusing autistic boy

Stephen Paddock, the 64-year-old millionaire blamed for killing at least 59 people and wounding 527 concert-goers in Las Vegas, does not fit the profile of a mass shooter, according to terror experts. The retired accountant used more than a dozen high-powered rifles to fire from the windows of a luxury suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel Sunday night.

Nancy Grace digs into the questions surrounding the massacre with a panel of experts, including Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism, Los Angeles psycho analyst Dr. Bethany Marshall, forensics expert Joseph Scott Morgan and Crime Stories contributing reporter Cheryl White.

Nancy also looks at a disturbing criminal case in Florida, where a teacher and two school administrators face charges after an investigation into the classroom treatment of a young boy who has been diagnosed with nonverbal autism. Northwest Florida Daily News reporters Heather Osbourne and Tom McLaughlin, whose investigative reporting brought the story to light, and the child’s father Eddie Perillo discuss the case with Grace.
