Paddock sent her $100,000 while she was there, telling her to buy a house.

Police also confirmed that Paddock had rented a room at the Ogden, a condo building, in September, overlooking the Life is attractive music festival in Las Vegas, which ran from September 22 to 24, but it is not known why.

It was not clear if he contemplated massacres at the other sites.

The bases of private aircraft companies were also close to the tanks, which sit on property owned by McCarran International Airport. Detective Mike McCarthy said Thursday, though he provided no further details.

The official stressed the information was preliminary and investigators haven't uncovered any solid evidence yet. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said it was unclear whether Paddock was ever in the city or when he conducted the Internet searches.

"You gotta make the assumption he had help at some point", said Clark County sheriff Joseph Lombardo.

At a press conference, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Aaron Rouse said that they have yet to find a link to terrorism.

Paddock killed himself after shooting into a concert crowd, killing 58 and wounding almost 500.

Chicago Police issued this response via Twitter.

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

It's thought the bookings come as Paddock "scouted" major concerts including Lollapalooza and near Boston's Fenway Park before settling on Las Vegas' Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

"Anybody that wants to get them is probably just anxious that they're going to be banned", store owner Kellie Weeks told the outlet.

The government imposed an global flight ban and other punitive measures on the Kurdish region, which voted overwhelmingly in favor of statehood.

The festival is popular with the children of the rich and famous - including former US President Barack Obama's eldest daughter Malia. "We have not confirmed whether that is the same Stephen Paddock, and we're working with the authorities".

The source said Paddock may have "lost his nerve" and checked into the Mandalay Beach Hotel on September 28 instead, The Daily Beast reported.

Stephen Paddock reportedly booked the rooms in August at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago.

"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 terrible like this was going to happen". Lollapalooza draws hundreds of thousands of music fans every year to Grant Park.

In the days after the attack, it remained unclear why Paddock carried out his attack.

Those seeking to know the motive of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock have had little more to chase than hints and shadows.

Jazz G Exum could miss season with separated shoulder
Shooting guard Alec Burks and Raul Neto could see an increase in playing time if Exum misses an extended period of time. Exum has failed to develop the way most anticipated since Utah made him the fourth overall pick of the 2014 draft.
