Stephen Paddock may have eyed Lollapalooza for an attack, report says

CBS news channel reported on Thursday that Paddock and Danley bought a Hyundai Tucson from a dealership in Reno, Nevada, on August 1.

Investigators are hoping the Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley can offer up some hints as to why he did it.

Marilou Danley, 62-years old and a former "high-limit hostess" at a Vegas casino, was named a person of interest by Vegas police after they discovered the body of 64-year-old Stephen Paddock inside his hotel room at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Authorities say the Las Vegas shooter sprayed 200 rounds of gunfire into the hallway when a security guard approached his hotel room, but the guard was only hit in the leg.

Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017 - two days before the festival started.

As a mother and grandmother "my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones", she said.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, of the Las Vegas Police, "More than 100 investigators have spent the last 72 hours combing through the life of 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, to produce a profile of someone I will call disturbed and unsafe".

At a Friday afternoon briefing, Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said they also are not clear what the gunman planned for the explosives found in his auto.

"We certainly know that he distracted the shooter and so lives were saved", David Hickey said, according to Newsweek.

But investigators do not believe his mental health was poor enough to have triggered an attack of this scale, the officials told NBC.

The website reported that Paddock never showed up for his reservation.

"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. Through her lawyer, Danley insisted she thought this was Paddock's way of preparing her for a breakup. "If you have factual information, it would be helpful to us", he said to the larger public watching the briefing on TV.

Paddock booked two rooms in the Blackstone hotel for 7/23-8/01 and for 7/27-8/03, all dates that corresponded with Lollapalooza. He also believes that it is possible that Paddock received help with his plans.
