Las Vegas Shooting Investigation Has Person Of Interest — But Who?

Last May 18 - about four months before the deadliest mass shootings in modern US history unfolded on the Las Vegas Strip - gunman Stephen Paddock was thinking about San Diego.

The Vegas massacre, which took place at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1, is the deadliest mass shooting in United States history. The shooter's doctor suspected he might have suffered from bipolar disorder and Paddock had told friends he always felt ill, in pain and worn out, according to the Associated Press.

"You will see disturbing search history from his computers to include extensive on ballistics and SWAT tactics", said Lombardo.

It took investigators several days to realize that Paddock extensively planned the attack.

Authorities on Friday released a preliminary investigative report on the Las Vegas shooting in response to large public interest in the case.

The two were staying in room 60-235 and she observed Paddock constantly looking out the windows of the room, which overlooked the Las Vegas Village venue, the report says. Police also recovered several hundred child pornography photographs on Paddock's laptop, the report said.

During an interview with authorities, Paddock's girlfriend said he had become "distant" in the year before the shooting and their relationship was no longer intimate. He was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head when police broke his door down after his shooting spree, and despite the investigation, investigators have established no motive for the crime. "Paddock would move from window to window looking at the site from different angles", according to the report. Before they knew it, rapid-fire gunshots were attacking the crowd from a window of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where Stephen Paddock rented a room specifically to face the music festival crowd.

In his hotel room police found 23 guns, 4,000 unused bullets, four laptops, and three cellphones.

Danley also said Paddock had been behaving oddly for the a year ago of his life and she thought he was breaking up with her when he unexpectedly wired her $100,000 prior to the shooting.

Spokeswomen for the FBI and federal prosecutors in Las Vegas declined to comment.

During an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation after she returned from the Philippines, Danley volunteered that investigators would find her fingerprints on bullets used during the attack because she would sometimes help Paddock load high-volume ammunition magazines, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation warrant documents.

Her casino player's card was also found in the suspected gunman's hotel room, the Los Angeles Times reported.
