Social media sleuths strike again with false ID in mass shooting

Social media sleuths did it again today, circulating false reports implicating a man who once lived in Fayetteville in the mass Las Vegas shootings.

Remember when similar sleuthing falsely identified a UA professor as one of the white supremacist marchers in Charlottesville?

This time, the Facebook detectives added 2 plus 2 to get five thanks to a possible former connection between the Fayetteville man and a woman identified as a companion — but not as suspect — of Stephen Paddock, identified as the Las Vegas shooter. The woman lived for a time in Northwest Arkansas, a variety of public record websites indicate and she shares the falsely identified man's last name. The alt-right was fired up about today's find because the man they falsely identified ..... wait for it ... watches Rachel Maddow and doesn't like Donald Trump.
