Investigators found 23 guns inside Paddock's hotel room and 12 so-called "bump stock" devices that can enable a rifle to fire continuously.

Stephen Paddock may have targeted Lollapalooza in Chicago, some are speculating, after a report surfaced that he booked a hotel room this past summer overlooking the sprawling annual music festival in Grant Park.

TMZ reported that Paddock specifically asked for rooms with a view of Grant Park.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack.

Investigators are trying to identify a mystery woman who had been seen with Paddock days before he carried out the Las Vegas massacre, police told NBC News.

Also, the weekend before the Las Vegas bloodbath, Paddock rented via Airbnb - and checked into - a condo in a 21-story luxury building in Las Vegas that overlooked the Life is handsome alternative music festival, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Tuesday.

"What we know is Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood", the sheriff said.

Danley spent much of the day being questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Los Angeles, where she arrived from the Philippines.

Paddock never showed up for his Chicago booking, according to the media reports, but the August 2-5 timing may have offered him an opportunity similar to the Las Vegas Strip concert Sunday night.

"They're going to be intermingled with the crowd". It should be noted that even President Obama's daughter Malia was even in attendance at Lollapalooza.

Paddock, 64, broke two windows in his 32nd-floor suite, one of which was in line with the concert site and the other with a direct view of the fuel tanks, a source said.

The hotel is cooperating with the authorities on this matter, said Carragher.

Bookings have been uncovered in Ogden a luxury condo tower that overlooks the Life is lovely festival in Las Vegas from September 22 to 24. Authorities continue to investigate. "That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet", FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said.

Yet, according to new reports, he may have planned attacks at other popular concert venues in the United States.
