Las Vegas gunman methodically sought to 'thwart' investigation of massacre, FBI says

Las Vegas gunman methodically sought to 'thwart' investigation of massacre, FBI says

Among the revelations in the affidavits are discussions about mystery email exchanges that occurred two months prior to the attack, which investigators believed may have been related to shooting at the Las Vegas music festival in October, where 58 people were killed and hundreds of others were injured.

Authorities released Paddock's name about an hour after Danley deleted her account.

She told investigators she occasionally helped Mr Paddock load magazines.

Paddock used anonymous communications devices, including a prepaid cellphone.

The documents describe what investigators believed at the time the affidavits were filed, but do not provide up-to-date information about the investigation.

"Investigators believe this piece of equipment was utilized in the attack carried out by Stephen Paddock", the affidavit read.

FBI spokeswoman Sandra Breault in Las Vegas said late Friday she could not comment about Danley or the investigation.

Even before her boyfriend was named as the man responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, Marilou Danley knew something was up.

The documents also reveal that Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, had personally handled the stockpile of ammunition found in his home. One conclusion, as per the New York Times: "Paddock planned the attack meticulously and took many methodical steps to avoid detection of his plot and to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation that would follow".

Federal authorities sought access to email addresses used by Paddock and Danley as well as Instagram, Facebook, Google and Amazon accounts they might have used. "With the shooter dead and no indication that co-conspirators were involved, authorities have no legitimate reason to lock down records related to their investigations".

An affidavit notes that Danely's Facebook account was deleted hours after the attack. There is a mention of Paddock's health in one affidavit, with an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent saying that he "may have been treated for yet unidentified medical conditions", but the agent does not elaborate.

A number of the devices that Paddock used in the shooting were ordered online, including a holographic weapon sight.

A third read: "For a thrill try out bumpfire ar's with 100 round magazine". Receiving a search warrant for that account "will lead investigators to determine the full scope of Stephen Paddock's plan", an F.B.I agent wrote to the judge.

One instance where investigators identified two email account attached to him - CentralPark4804gmail.com and CenterPark1live.com - an exchange began with "Try an ar before u buy".

Within Paddock's email accounts, investigators had identified a July 6 thread that appears to contain messages sent by Paddock to himself.
