October: Vegas Shooter's Girlfriend Said She Handled Ammo

October: Vegas Shooter's Girlfriend Said She Handled Ammo

A USA judge is being asked to unseal documents telling what federal agents learned before searching properties belonging to the gunman responsible for the October 1 massacre on the Las Vegas Strip.

One of the warrants describe the extent to which Paddock went to conceal his actions, saying he "destroyed or tried to hide digital media devices".

Two of the cellphones were unlocked and authorities were able to examine them, producing no significant information about Paddock's plans or preparations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation wrote. They found the same in his hotel room, along with three cell phones, one of which was locked and could not be accessed, the documents said. An agent wrote in the search warrants that "if there were any information related to a potential conspiracy, it would be found within" the locked phone, which operated on the Google platform, meaning that it nearly certainly was not an iPhone.

Drapes billow out of broken windows at the Mandalay Bay resort.

But investigators said the use of bump stocks on the night of the shooting allowed Paddock to fire rifles nearly as though they were automatic weapons.

Unsealed search warrants reveal new particulars in regards to the Las Vegas bloodbath

Stephen Paddock's emails were disclosed in affidavits unsealed Friday after several media organizations, including The Associated Press, fought for their release. Danley has denied knowing anything about Paddock's plans. "Neither contained significant information that allowed investigators to determine the full scope of Stephen Paddock's planning and preparation for the attack", the documents said. She "corroborated much of what had been previously deduced by investigators", an agent wrote in one filing, and remained "adamant" she was unaware of Paddock's intentions.

The documents also showed that Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told investigators before they searched a house that the two shared that they might find her fingerprints on ammunition "because she occasionally participated in loading magazines", the Review-Journal reported.

The FBI document, filed six days after the shooting, says authorities had no evidence suggesting Danley had any criminal involvement in the massacre.

In her statement after the shooting, Danley said she had assumed Paddock was breaking up with her, continuing that it "never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone".

Paddock's email account, centralpark1@live.com, identified by authorities as "Target Account 1", sent a message to an account identified as centralpark4804@gmail.com, another email address linked to the shooter, stating: "try an ar before u buy we have huge selection located in the las vegas area".
