Police Just Announced What Was On the Las Vegas Shooter's Note

The Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock said he showed signs of mental illness and would often lie in bed screaming.

Just before the shooting, Paddock sent Danley to her native country to visit family.

Authorities are still working to determine the shooter's motives, which still remain largely a mystery a week after the massacre.

Weinreich says girlfriend Marilou Danley once worked at the casino and initially got on Paddock's good side by leading him to a machine where someone had lost tens of thousands of dollars.

"[Paddock] never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning something terrible like this was going to happen", Ms Danley, who flew into LA on Tuesday to speak with investigators, said in a statement released by her lawyer.

Sources claim that Paddock received a guaranteed view room, against company policy.

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told CNN this evening that authorities also haven't determined what Paddock meant to do with his explosives-stocked auto at the Mandalay Bay hotel, which included 1,600 rounds of ammunition as well as ready-to-use tannerite and two mixer chemicals, ammonium nitrate and aluminum chloride.

Danley goes on to says she will "cooperate fully with their (the FBI's) investigation".

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

TMZ revealed on Thursday that Paddock rented two hotel rooms at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago on August 1 and August 3.

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.

"We're extremely proud of Jesus and more importantly we're happy for him and his family that his wound was not as numerous people that were killed".

Before Rouse's promise, Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill disclosed that the authorities had probed Stephen Paddock's personal life, political beliefs, social behavior and economic habits, but had not found clear motive for the violence. "If you have factual information, it would be helpful to us", he said to the larger public watching the briefing on TV.
