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

So far, the coroner says he hasn't found anything out of the ordinary.

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

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

The coroner's office says it's not sure when the brain tissue examination will be finished.

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