Las Vegas gunman booked hotel rooms outside Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful

Las Vegas gunman booked hotel rooms outside Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful

And, according to TMZ, the 64-year-old reserved one room for August 1, two days before the festival, and then booked a second room for August 3. Paddock reportedly "specifically requested" that both rooms overlook the music festival's main stage at Grant Park.

In a statement released to the Chicago Tribune, chief police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said authorities are investigating the report.

Lollapalooza's acts included Muse, Lorde, Chance The Rapper, The xx, Justice and Big Sean with over 400,000 people attending.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police still did not know why the additional rooms had been booked, but suggested Paddock may have been doing pre-surveillance for his attack.

"The investigation is being led by the folks in Las Vegas, and we're in constant conversation with the fusion center here in MA, which is in constant contact with them", Baker said.

If the killer had put his plan into execution, the shooting would no doubt have been even more deadly: the location of the scenes would have made it hard to leak to the public, and it is also significantly more numerous than in Las Vegas. He did not elaborate how: "I can't tell you". "This is all conjecture at this point", Lombardo said.

TMZ's sources say that Paddock never showed up for his reservation.

Even the No. 2 official in the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday he was surprised investigators have not uncovered more about why a man with no obvious criminal record would cause so much bloodshed.

Danley said, "He wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family".

Police were reviewing video shot at the high-rise to check Paddock's movements.

Investigators were looking into the possibility that Paddock planned additional attacks, including a vehicle bombing, a federal law enforcement officials said. "We can confirm that a reservation was made under the name Stephen Paddock, however authorities have not confirmed that this is the same person as the Las Vegas shooter".

The lodging near Fenway offers at best an obstructed view of the ballpark - and Paddock ultimately gave up on the search, officials said.

Paddock's brother Eric said the $100,000 transfer was evidence that "Steve took care of the people he loved", and that he probably wanted to protect Ms Danley by sending her overseas before the attack.

"He meticulously planned on the worst domestic attack in United States history".

Meanwhile, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told AP on Wednesday that he was surprised that more has not been discovered about Paddock or his motives.
