Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock 'the most well-known unknown person in town'

Neighbours in Mesquite, Nev., say they 'had no idea that a lunatic lived three doors down'.It's a modest, orange stucco house on a hill overlooking the desert, not much different from any of the others on the block, except for wooden boards covering a hole where the garage door would have been, and the yellow police tape that circles the property.

Terry Nerrins didn't want to come to Stephen Paddock's house, but she had to: it's her job. She has covered the city of Mesquite, Nev., for the local paper for years. She spent the last couple of days trying to find out everything she could about the man who lived here, to understand why.

She spoke with neighbours, talked to workers at the local casino where Paddock gambled. Almost nothing.

"He just kind of blended into the crowd, he was completely under the radar," Nerrins said. "He's become the most well-known unknown person in town."

'It's unimaginable'

But as she stood in front of the house taking photographs, knowing what happened after he closed his front door for the last time and drove the hour-and-a-half to the Vegas Strip, her journalistic objectivity dissolved and she began to cry.

"It's just terrible. Our hearts ... are just so heavy for what happened. It's unimaginable, it truly is."
