More Questions After FBI Releases Vegas Shooting Files

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock emailed about bump stocks months before rampage: documents Unsealed search warrants reveal new particulars in regards to the Las Vegas bloodbath

A federal judge Friday unsealed more than 300 pages of search warrants related to the mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds, but the documents do little to reveal what prompted the attack.

One warrant described how he "destroyed or tried to hide digital media devices".

Paddock came to Las Vegas with an arsenal - more than 20 firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition and spent casings were found in his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

Stephen Paddock's emails were disclosed in affidavits unsealed Friday after several media organizations, including The Associated Press, fought for their release.

Danley was "adamant that she had no prior inclination of Paddock's intentions to conduct the attack", says an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's affidavit. The investigation is continuing, and the warrants only reflect its early stages. 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.

Danley told investigators they would probably find her fingerprints on bullets because she sometimes helped Paddock load ammunition magazines. The FBI said there was no evidence that she knew of his plans or had been deceptive, but it cautioned soon after the shootings that she was still the "subject of intensive review".

An FBI agent told a judge in an October 3 document that Danley wasn't arrested when she returned to the US; she had provided a DNA sample to authorities, and she was cooperating with investigators.

Paddock bought numerous items on the Internet during the 12 months leading up to the attack. The glass cutters were used to cut the windows of the hotel.

Police found 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room after the horrific shooting, as well as 19 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition found at his home. Investigators also found body armour, range finders and a homemade gas mask.

Paddock also set up cameras in the hallway outside the room. In October, Ms. Danley told investigators that Mr Paddock's physical and mental health seemed to have deteriorated in recent months. "Conversely, if the Target Account was not controlled by Stephen Paddock, investigators need to determine who was communicating with him about weapons that were used in the attack", according to a warrant. Authorities have said Paddock used a "bump stock", a device that can make semiautomatic guns mimic the rapid fire of automatic weapons.

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman deleted her Facebook profile within hours of the shooting, according to on Friday.

Within hours after the massacre, she deleted her Facebook account, according to search warrants. An email in response suggested trying a bump stock on the rifle with a 100-round magazine. By "ar", Mr Paddock appeared to be referring to rifles.

The newspaper also said investigators identified an email inbox belonging to Paddock that contained a message from a Gmail account officials believe was related to Paddock's preparations for the attack.

By 5 a.m., Danley had been found by investigators and labeled "a person of interest" in the case, the paper reported.
