Paddock's house
Image: http://a.abcnews.com/images/US/paddock-house-abc-ps-171002_4x3_992.jpg


My question - for someone who seemed to have dealt in large sums of cash, someone who gambled a million dollars a year (per CNN), someone who seemed to have the avenues possible to purchase whatever it seems like he wanted, why in the hell would he live in a $350,000 home? Where I live you could buy that house for 200 grand any day of the week.

People with that much monetary clout usually are rather self serving to let the world know of their monetary prowess. This guy was either the coolest customer when defining the phrase "low profile" or something is terrible amiss here.

I kinda feel he wasn't as wealthy as everyone is making him out to be.

I know a billionaire that lives in a 500k house and loves it. Enough money makes people not want to draw attention to themselves

I agree. Everything seems to be cash deals with him. IMO, somebody was bankrolling this guy.

People are not the same. A big house usually means big upkeep. I doubt he was into that kind of thing,and didn't want to deal with workers at his house either.

That is because this guy is a patsy. It would be interesting to see if we are ever provided evidence he was even shooting guns and wasn't just a body dropped at the scene or killed at the scene so there was someone there to take the blame.

What happened to his garage door. He must have been trying to teach that Phillipino whore how to drive.

Apparently they couldn't wait for the key to get their stuff out of that house...

Door seems to be pulled open with the burn marks at the center of the driveway. They messed up the front yard a bit too.

This has been my pet conspiracy theory from the git-go.

How about he wasn't into impressing other people?

There are plenty of rich people that don't necessarily "live rich." Some seem to have to grandiose notion that if you have money, you're supposed to flaunt it. What I see mostly, is that people that grew up middle to upper class, tend to not have the need to flaunt their wealth. I tend to also believe that is you grew up struggling, and you make something of yourself, you need "stuff" to fill emotional holes to feel better. That, and/or you marry a greedy whore that wants the fairy tale - rich life that they are fed in everything they see growing up.

I'd agree with your statement but in reference to this guy, I don't see it. He owned this and that (heard this morning he owned two planes at one time), he gambled a lot, was sending his sweetie 100 grand overseas in $10,000 increments. Like I said, he might have been a cool customer. Also, having been an employee of the IRS, surely he would know that when making a $10,000 withdrawal from a bank account, that is reported to the IRS.

Just seems to me this guy moved a lot of cash money around but it didn't seem to cause a red flag.

If I were a millionare I sure in the hell wouldn't spent my money on a huge house either. I would rather send it on fun things:

Hunting Land
Fishing Camp
Traveling
Football Games
etc.

I grew up in the Addicks/Bear Creek area of west Houston. Not known as a fantastic area. The father of my best friend growing up went to Princeton and was the CFO of a MAJOR offshore drilling company. I didn't find either of those facts out until a few years ago (decades later) because they never told anyone what he did. They lived in a ~1,700 SF house in a lower middle class neighborhood that was MAYBE $50,000 when they bought it in the early '80s and possibly $150,000 when they sold it 10 years ago. He and his wife drove stick shift Corollas. The man was and is a millionaire many many times over. Not everyone with major bank flosses it like a rapper. The fact that he was loaded but lived in a modest house is not really surprising to me at all. His life was video poker in Vegas. He didn't care about fancy houses.

The city he lived in is a dusty patch of desert on the AZ/NV border where land should be almost free so I don’t know how in the hell that house was $350,000 either. Literally almost the entire cost of the home should be construction costs so 350k seems like at least 200k too much.

The guy traveled and stayed in hotels. Why would he want the upkeep of a large house?
