(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

Mass murderer Stephen Paddock "fits no specific profile," and without an electronic trail or written note, "we might not ever know" what sparked his horrendous rampage, CNN contributor Harry Houck told "Newsmax Now."

In an interview Monday with Newsmax TV hosts Bill Tucker, Jonathan Gillam, and Oz Sultan, Houck said "in all the cases I've worked as a detective, this one's got me a little confused."

And Houck said whether the slaughter was terrorist or politically tied is still unclear.

"First it came out that it's a possibility that he was connected with ISIS, now the FBI says he's not connected with ISIS," he said. "I don't know how they can make that conclusion as of now."

"As soon as I found out that the FBI was saying it was not terrorist related, I thought it was politically connected somehow. Is this politically connected?" he added.

"So if he didn't leave a manifesto and there is no electronic footprint of what he's been talking about . . . or any connections to other people or what kind of research he's been doing on his computer, there's a good possibility we might not ever know."

But Houck said Paddock's girlfriend might be the key to unlocking a motivation.

"You've got to find out everything about her because she's the girlfriend," he said. "The girlfriends almost always know."

Houck also said he doubts, despite the enormity of the massacre, "we're not going to see much difference, and changes, in security" in hotels or outside venues.

"Maybe a little bit, but not a whole hell of a lot," he predicted.
