Las Vegas massacre survivors 2 months later: 'We're in the dark'

•, By Nicole Chavez

Authorities have largely gone silent on the case -- refusing to answer the many lingering questions except for a couple of local TV interviews. But one pressing query may get some answers Thursday when a probate judge could decide the future of gunman Stephen Paddock's finances.
Since the massacre, more than 450 people have filed lawsuits related to the shooting. Many of them against Paddock's estate.

Paddock died without a will and his assets have been estimated to be worth $5 million, CNN affiliate KSNVreported. His brother has said the money should be given to the victims, but nothing can be done until a court decides who will manage his assets.

Thursday's hearing could be the first in a series of steps toward closure for families and shedding light on the case.

Media outlets including CNN are also fighting in court for the release of public records, like body camera footage and 911 calls.
