Authorities Say Stephen Paddock May Have Plotted Attacks At Other Music Festivals


According to Danley, she remembers Paddock "as a kind, caring, quiet man".

Another former Federal Bureau of Investigation official told the news outlet Danley spoke about Paddock displaying "mental health symptoms".

Las Vegas Police found 50 pounds of explosives and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in the auto Paddock parked at the Mandalay Bay Hotel where he mounted his assault on thousands of concertgoers.

Lombardo, however, did say that Paddock had planned extensively for the shooting - those plans included keeping a vehicle at the hotel filled with explosive material and 1,600 rounds of ammunition, Lombardo said.

But officials do believe that Paddock must have had some kind of help in his plan to wipe out a large amount of people - a plan that they think he thought out for years, perhaps even decades.

Janette Henry says Ms Danley was her stepmother 30 years ago after she married Ms Henry's father in Australia.

Days before that, Lombardo said Paddock rented a room overlooking another Las Vegas music festival, Life is handsome.

At a Friday afternoon briefing, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said they also are not clear what the gunman planned for the explosives found in his vehicle.

Investigators are yet to discover Paddock's motive for the shooting.

Danley said Paddock "never said anything to me, or took any action that I was aware of, that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen".

Employees at the vehicle dealership told CBS that Paddock was an "educated consumer" and Danley was "extremely complimentary" of her boyfriend, adding that he had "saved her" from an abusive relationship with her former husband.

Law enforcement sources have similarly confirmed to CNN and the Associated Press that the paper contained a series of numbers used to assist Paddock in targeting his victims.

"You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point", Lombardo said.

The pair stayed in "out-of-this-world penthouse suites like you wouldn't believe" because Paddock was a "high roller".
