The Clark County Coroner says that an autopsy has been completed on the 1 October shooting suspect, Stephen Paddock.

So far, the Coroner hasn't found anything out of the ordinary.

Multiple forensic analyses will be performed on the body, including a neuropathological examination of brain tissue at the Stanford University Department of Pathology.

Stanford is one of the County Coroner's contracted neuropathology laboratories.

The Coroner's Office says that they're not sure when the brain tissue examination will be finished.

Paddock's family is aware of his current location, but the location will not be made public due to security concerns.
