Vehicle related to Las Vegas mass shooting located by police

The mystery piece of paper, found in gunman Stephen Paddock's hotel suite, was not a suicide note and has been sent for analysis, reported Metro, quoting Las Vegas Metropolitan Police (LVMPD) Sheriff Lombardo as saying.

"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".

"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", she said.

The motive as to why he did what he did, however, remains elusive.

Authorities are "very confident" there was just one shooter in the suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort hotel but "continue to investigate whether anybody else may have known about this incident before he carried it out".

"It was pre-planned, extensively, and I'm pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome", Lombardo said. A police official confirmed Thursday that Stephen Paddock, 64, booked a room at the Blackstone Hotel the same week the annual music festival was held.

She voluntarily returned from the Philippines, where she had been at the time of the incident in Nevada, and was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at Los Angeles International Airport.

Stephen Paddock slaughtered 58 people using a stockpile of weapons. While there, he wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family.

On Wednesday, having returned from overseas voluntarily to answer investigator's questions about her partner, Danley released a statement which was read out by her lawyer, Matthew Lombard. Now, evidence is mounting that someone was likely in the room with Paddock for at least part of the time prior to the massacre. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said.

The Las Vegas Police Department's K-9 unit, said he noticed the paper on the shooter's nightstand, not far from one of the windows Paddock had smashed with a hammer before firing into the unsuspecting crowd below with high-powered semi-automatic rifles.
