More than two months have passed since 58 country music fans were gunned down in the Las Vegas massacre, and survivors as well as victims' families are still searching for some semblance of closure.

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. 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.

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

Law enforcement wants them held back until its official report is complete, but they won't say when that may come. The lack of information has made it hard for some survivors to heal mentally and emotionally.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
