In the aftermath of the Mandalay Bay massacre, investigators learned that Paddock had rented a high-rise condo in a building that overlooked the Life is handsome festival in Las Vegas.

"I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him", her statement reads. Law enforcement still believes she is the missing link to determine what the shooter's motives were for the massacre as there are no leads as of yet.

However, the official said there was no evidence that Paddock ever came to Chicago that weekend, according to the Associated Press.

"He was doing everything possible to see how he could escape", Lombardo said.

As he approached, he was shot - through the door - by gunman Stephen Paddock.

Reports now say he also booked rooms overlooking Chicago's Lollapalooza and another Las Vegas event, the Life Is Beautiful festival.

Paddock, the 64-year-old gambler and real estate investor, rained down about 1,600 rounds of ammo from the 32th floor suite of Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of more than 22,000 people attending Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival Sunday night, killing 58 concertgoers and injuring almost 500.

"We don't have any immediately accessible thumb prints that would indicate the shooter's ideology or motivation", said FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Stephen Paddock, the gunman who sprayed bullets on concert-goers last Sunday in Las Vegas, was "very unfriendly" while his girlfriend was just the opposite, says a Dayton man who interacted with both.

A note found in the suite of a high-rise hotel Paddock stayed in featured handwritten calculations on how to maximize the accuracy of his fire to kill as many people as he possibly could.

One of Danley's sisters also said in an interview with Channel Seven, that, like them, Danley didn't know anything about the Las Vegas shooting.

"Something had to happen to Steve - I'm not even trying to excuse it - but something happened that drove him into the pit of hell and he did this", he told CBS.

"You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo added.

No motive has yet been found for the killing, however Paddock is confirmed to have been taking an anti-anxiety medication Valium at the time of the attack.
