Media reports citing law enforcement officials say Paddock reserved two rooms in Chicago overlooking the Lollapalooza festival, which draws hundreds of thousands of music fans yearly, in August. The mass shooting resulted in 58 deaths and injured at least 489 people.

"She said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, 'Oh, my God, '" said a former Federal Bureau of Investigation official briefed on the matter, NBC News reported. The reserved hotel rooms overlooked the festival's main stage, entrance, and exit - not vastly different than the positioning of the Mandalay Bay suite he eventually used to attack innocent Route 91 festival goers.

However on its site, the hotel giant said in a statement that it is committing $3million - around £2.3m - to the victims of the deadly shooting.

Sheriff Lombardo said it is crucial to talk to anyone who knew gunman Paddock in the hunt for possible accomplices.

He said that it was only logical to "make the assumption" that Paddock had "some help at some point" in pulling off Sunday's massacre, pointing to Paddock's huge arsenal, explosive materials found in his auto and his meticulous planning.

Danley says he wired her money while she was in the Philippines so she could buy a house, and thought that was his way of breaking up with her.

"Paddock rented a room at the Ogden Hotel in downtown Las Vegas".

The pair stayed in "out-of-this-world penthouse suites like you wouldn't believe" because Paddock was a "high roller".

"I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him", she said.

"You gotta make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", said Lombardo.

Investigators are also looking into a note found in Paddock's hotel room, which is not a suicide note but rather one containing numbers.

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.

Police recovered about 50 firearms from three locations they searched, almost half of them from the hotel suite from which Paddock launched the attack.
