Stephen Paddock's brother has been arrested

Bruce Paddock the younger brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested for child porn at an assisted living center in North Hollywood California on Wednesday

Paddock is not considered a suspect in the Las Vegas shooting, which left 59 people dead, including the gunman Stephen Paddock.

A laptop computer recovered from the Las Vegas hotel room where Stephen Paddock launched the deadliest mass shooting in US history was missing its hard drive, depriving investigators of a potential key source of information on why he killed and maimed so many people, ABC News has learned.

Investigators are still struggling to explain why Paddock opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 country music festival on October 1.

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, the patriarch of the family, also had a long history of crime.

Bruce Paddock has not been booked yet, but the official tells PEOPLE charges are expected to be filed sometime today.

Investigators, however, were unable to locate Paddock because he was homeless.

The 2008, Steven Kazmierczak, who murdered five students at an IL college before killing himself, removed the SIM card from his phone and the hard drive from his laptop.

Bruce and Stephen Paddock's father, Benjamin Paddock, was a notorious bank robber who once occupied a slot on the FBI's most wanted list. No clear motive has been presented to explain the shooting.

He is not the first mass shooter to destroy or hide digital clues.

And in 2012, Adam Lanza, who killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., had removed the hard drive from his computer and destroyed it.
