encrypted suicide note

Authorities have had no luck understanding or decoding the mysterious cryptic note filled only with numbers that Paddock left on the table in the hotel room.

And they probably won't unless they release the note so its decryption can be crowd sourced.

Police test to make sure their employees are below average IQ. They have no chance of figuring out who committed crimes or what the encrypted note left behind by a psychopath with a deep math background means.

The average policeman is average or below-average IQ.

There are some elite police that deal with more complex crimes.

Does he have deep math background? I haven't kept up. School or autodidact ?

Self taught. One of the reports from people who knew him said he wrote a bunch of software with his own algorithms to help him win at the casinos. You can't really be a professional gambler these days unless you are using technology, which the casinos consider "cheating". He was banned from some casinos that realized he was winning too often to not be using technology.

Education wise he went to a math and science magnet high school. College he got a degree in business administration. But then he went on to be an IRS and a Lockheed auditor, both which require facility with numbers. Don't have to be Erdos for this stuff, but can't be stupid, and have to be smarter than all the other pro gamblers.

Whores he saw regularly said he was a dark and violent guy who paid extra to be able to abuse them.

And it now turns out he did in fact have ISIS contacts and visited them in the middle east.

I think it was just a note on calculating distance and trajectory. It's simple math.

He was shooting downwards from the 32nd floor so he would have had to calculate a sight adjustment.

They should show the calcs to a trained sniper and see what he says.
