Police still baffled by Las Vegas gunman's motive for massacre


"My fear is that he manipulated around her, and she'€™s not going to know any more than anyone else does".

Before release, the items had to be cleaned of blood and other substances, as well as categorized, Flood said.

Meanwhile, country singer Jason Aldean visited University Medical Center on Sunday, just one week after the shooting that claimed the lives of 58 concertgoers and injured hundreds of others at the Route 91 Harvest festival. "He 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 awful like this was going to happen".

Newton added that forcing entry into the room with an explosive before finding Paddock's body and an arsenal of weapons was like something "out of a movie". His house was first searched on Monday, October 2.

The U.S. official briefed by federal law enforcement officers wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, friends and relatives of the victims and other concert-goers who survived returned Monday to reclaim baby strollers, shoes, phones, backpacks and purses left behind in the panic as they fled.

But so far, authorities looking to see if anyone may have aided Paddock found no evidence of the gunman having associates in Las Vegas.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Sandra Breault declined to comment.

There is no indication that he travelled to either city, police say.

"I think they prevented a thousand deaths, and I think it's important for the American public to understand that", Lombardo said.

Paddock spent the days before the shooting bringing bags of guns into the hotel and setting up his sniper's perch for the shooting.

When they got through the door, the officers saw a hotel service cart with wires leading to Paddock's suite and suspected it might have been rigged with explosives; they later discovered Paddock had placed a camera there.

What they have uncovered - in his 32nd-floor suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel, his vehicle, and his homes - is a remarkable collection of firearms commensurate with the scale of violence he unleashed before he killed himself as police closed in. "Now we're trained to gather up and go get it".

"No, it's not", Paddock said. "And we would have, on behalf of the guests, of course, investigated for safety, and it would have been a provocative situation".

"We are aware of the media reports", the statement said.

But while some of the weapons were bought over the last 20 years, authorities believe 33 of the 47 guns - a lot of them rifles - were purchased between October 2016 and last month, an ATF spokesperson said.

Lombardo said that the revised timeline is based on new information that emerged over the course of the ongoing investigation. It is not known when Paddock last took the drug.

"While some of it has helped to create a better profile into the madness of this suspect, we do not, still, have a clear motive or reason why", said McMahill. "But if there's anything interesting that stood out over the six years, nobody that's ever worked here have ever seen the gentleman or the lady take a drink of wine, beer or alcohol of any kind". "At least from what people who observed him tell me, he was someone in the middle but at the high end".

Paddock rented the room at the Ogden condo complex via Airbnb during the Life is handsome music festival, which lasted from September 22 to 25, the sheriff said. "So many people are hurting". We don't know yet. "I didn't really know what it all looked like until the morning".

"We heard it over the radio".
