She is considered a person of interest, but is returning to the U. However, it's unknown whether those high-stakes gambles resulted in wins or loses for Paddock.
On the surface, Paddock didn't seem like a typical mass murderer, said Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI hostage negotiator and supervisor in the bureau's behavioral science unit.
Paddock is much older than the typical shooter and was not known to be suffering from mental illness. The retired accountant had worked as an internal auditor at Lockheed Martin for three years in the late s, and was a manager and investor in apartment complexes located in Mesquite, Texas and California, which made him millions, his brother said, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
Local police said they had no run-ins with the man, not even traffic violations, and his brother described him as 'just a guy who lived in Mesquite who drove down and gambled in Las Vegas and So the discovery that he had used 10 suitcases to methodically move an arsenal up into his Mandalay Bay room over the preceding weekend came as a shock to those who knew him.
He said he didn't know about the 23 guns that were found in the hotel room. Toni Reicher right hugs her daughter as nearby church bells ring during a vigil on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, to show solidarity with the Las Vegas victims.

Las Vegas butcher Stephen Paddock amassed 42 firearms before carrying out his massacre, 23 of which were found inside the hotel room he used for his massacre.
The majority of those weapons were rifles, though at least one was a handgun. Two rifles had been modified with tripods and scopes, greatly increasing their accuracy, and at least two had been modified to allow for something close to fully-automatic fire.
Thousands of rounds of ammunition were also found, ranging in caliber from. While the exact extent of Paddock's cache is not yet clear, we know it included:.
Manufactured by Daniel Defense, the rifle features a muzzle flash suppressor, making it harder to tell where the weapon is being fired from.
It also has a freefloat rail allowing for a variety of attachments including scopes and grips to enhance stability. Made by FN America, they also feature a muzzle flash suppressor and 'H buffer system', which reduces recoil and increases accuracy.
FN refers to a series of rifles, rather than a specific weapon, which range from smaller carbines to replicas of the military-issue M It is not known exactly which version was owned by Paddock.
Also in his terrifying arsenal were three of these FN rifles, as well as guns made by Sig Sauer. Some of the semi-automatic guns had been fitted with bump-stocks that allow for, essentially, fully automatic fire.
A Russian-designed assault rifle, it was used by the country's military from and is still used by armies and rebel groups around the world.
Known for its simplicity and reliability, it fires 7. An AK was also found in the room with the other weapons. AKs can come with fully automatic fire functions, but it's not known if that was the case here.
This rifle is known as the most popular in America, with an estimated 8million in homes around the country.
It is also gaining a dubious reputation as the weapon of choice for mass shooters, from movie theatre killer James Holmes to San Bernardino terrorist Omar Mateen.
A Colt AR was also found in the room. At least one full-auto weapon was found, but it's not known if it was modified or had that function when manufactured.
While not weapons in themselves, these stocks modify semi-automatic weapons allowing for something close to fully-automatic fire.
They fit over the stock of a semi-auto rifle, and function by allowing the weapon to 'bump' back and forth as it is fired using the weapon's recoil.
Each bump brings the user's finger down on the trigger, firing a round. This allows users to skirt around regulations prohibiting fully-automatic weapons.

He had no religious or political affiliations, no military background, and was known to have just a couple of handguns, his brother said.
And it later emerged that two other semi-auto guns had been legally modified with bump-stocks that allow them to function like fully-automatic rifles, pumping out bullets a minute.
The device basically replaces the gun's shoulder rest, with a 'support step' that covers the trigger opening. By holding the pistol grip with one hand and pushing forward on the barrel with the other, the shooter's finger comes in contact with the trigger.
The recoil causes the gun to buck back and forth, 'bumping' the trigger. Technically, that means the finger is pulling the trigger for each round fired, keeping the weapon a legal semi-automatic.
Still others could have been properly converted into fully automatic fire, the LA Times reported. A handgun was also found.
Sheriff Lombardo said on Tuesday that he couldn't comment on whether the rifles had been modified to be automatic, but he did say that they were aware of reports that bump stops were involved.
He said that the ammunition ranged in size from. Eric said the revelation of his brother's deadly plan, which saw thousands of rounds falling on a crowd of 22, people at a music festival below, was as unexpected as seeing a meteor suddenly landing on his street.
The shocks only grew in number Monday as police raided two of Paddock's properties. What they found was a second arsenal, even bigger than the one in the Mandalay Bay room.
Some 19 additional firearms were in the house, along with the explosive Tannerite - which is used to make explosive targets for target practice - and several thousand rounds of ammunition, Lombardo said Monday.
He added that electronic devices were also found, but that they are still being examined to determine their purpose. Photos of the property showed the garage door torn off its hinge and crumpled after the search.

Investigators load bodies from the scene of the mass shooting on Monday; the mass shooting that occurred on Sunday is the deadliest in American history.
The home is in a quiet retirement community in which residents must be over Cops found 19 guns there, plus explosives. Bomb experts were included in the SWAT deployment due to the fear that Paddock may have left booby traps at the home.

Upper bullet strike. Many of us can yet recall his name and face. Like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold before Columbine, and Dylan Roof before his sickening atrocity at the black church in Charleston, Paddock wanted to live on as one of the great mass murderers in U.
And he has succeeded. We are today paying him in the currency he craved. He is famous, and we have made him so. Network and cable TV anchors and correspondents stampeded to Las Vegas to dig into his background and motivation.
Commentators discoursed on the meaning of it all. By Wednesday, Trump himself was in Vegas. Whatever caused Paddock to conclude that ending his life was preferable to living it is not the crucial question.
Suicides are not uncommon in America. The ground around him is littered with shell casings. You can see the photo below warning, it is very graphic :.
