Las Vegas Gunman's 'Secret Life' Thwarts Investigators' Hunt For Motive

Las Vegas Gunman's 'Secret Life' Thwarts Investigators' Hunt For Motive

"We're told the hotel is now trying to figure out why someone on the staff broke policy by guaranteeing him a room with a view".

Danley said she was grateful but anxious that the unexpected trip home and the money "was a way of breaking up with me".

All of this and Paddock's motive remains a mystery - no criminal history, no political agenda, and no connections to terrorism.

On Sunday night, Paddock used his perch in a suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort to unleash a barrage of rapid gunfire on a crowd of country music fans attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival. From the first shots that rang out, it took officers 75 minutes to find Paddock dead in his room.

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 terrible like this was going to happen".

In a new disclosure, authorities said two bullets Paddock fired struck a large jet fuel storage tank at the edge of the city's main airport, about a block from the concert grounds, indicating an apparent attempt by the gunman to create even greater havoc.

Marilou Danley was questioned by federal agents on Wednesday after returning from her native Philippines. While there, he wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family. He also believes that it is possible that Paddock received help with his plans. Through her lawyer, Danley insisted she thought this was Paddock's way of preparing her for a breakup.

Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that he presumed that Paddock had some sort of assistance, due to the sheer complexity of the attack.

"I know that she doesn't know anything as well like us", said one of the sisters, who chose to remain anonymous. The investigators are working with the assumption that he had some help at some point.

Unfortunately, Paddock decided that he'd carry out his heinous act during the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas on October 1. He said that it was hard to believe that the weapons and ammunition found in his possession were acquired by him alone.
