  • Las Vegas Shooter's Estate Slapped with $2 Million Claim by Victim

Her casino players' card was found in his room.

Meanwhile, emails reviewed by investigators have confirmed that Paddock sent an unspecified amount of money to Danley in September, the Review-Journal reported.

Metropolitan Police Department investigators noticed that Marilou Danley, the gunman's girlfriend, who was in the Philippines at the time, set her Facebook account to private at 12:30 a.m. on October 2 and had deleted the account by 2:46 a.m., according to an affidavit included in more than 300 pages of documents handed over Friday by federal prosecutors after U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey ordered them unsealed. The request was unopposed by prosecutors. Instead, they demonstrate how authorities continue to seek answers to many questions surrounding Paddock's actions and motive.

From a 32-floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Stephen Paddock opened fire on people attending a country music festival. Lombardo said several pounds of ammonium nitrate, a material used to make explosives, was found in the vehicle. "Transparency is more, not less, important in the wake of a tragedy like 1 October". A "large quantity of firearms" was recovered from another residence he had in Reno.

The search warrants covered electronic accounts of Paddock and his girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

The documents suggest Danley acted quickly after the shooting to hide her relationship with Paddock, the New York Post reported.

According to an affidavit, Danley was identified early on "as the most likely person who aided or abetted Stephen Paddock based on her informing law enforcement that her fingerprints would likely be found on the ammunition used during the attack". She was never arrested, though was deemed "a person of interest" by police after the shooting.

Danley spoke with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents after returning to the United States.

Ten pages of the search warrant documents remained sealed ahead of a Nevada state court hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

And the older I got the more willing I was to go back into the Southern vernacular because some of it's amusing ", Jackson said. Keith Jackson wrote his own job description and it was simple: "Educate, illuminate and then get the hell out of the way".

The document says Danley also provided a DNA sample to authorities. It showed that on September 7, 2017, he received an email related to the purchase of a "EOTech 512 A65 Tactical Holographic firearm accessory".

Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have said they found no evidence that Paddock had help carrying out the attack.

It appears Paddock exchanged emails with himself, a fact that puzzled investigators.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock in an undated photo. "Located in the Las Vegas area". Receiving a search warrant for that account "will lead investigators to determine the full scope of Stephen Paddock's plan", an F.B.I agent wrote to the judge. An email in response suggested trying a bump stock on the rifle with a 100-round magazine.

In their requests for data from Instagram, investigators said they were seeking "evidence showing the possession, use, purchase or sale of firearms, firearms accessories, ammunition or explosives by Paddock".

But FBI investigators appeared perplexed by the exchange.

The documents said Paddock had received an email from a Gmail account in July encouraging him to try an AR-style rifle before buying one.

Much of what investigators found in the hotel room had already been made public, but the search warrants add additional details.

The third phone, however, was unable to be unlocked, the affidavit said.
