Stephen Paddock, the gunman in the Las Vegas massacre, booked two rooms in the Blackstone Hotel overlooking Lollapalooza, according to TMZ. "The Steve I knew two weeks ago is no longer the guy who did that thing", Eric Paddock said of his brother Thursday.

The official said yesterday that prostitutes are among the hundreds of leads they are pursuing as part of their investigation into Stephen Paddock.

The Lollapalooza music festival was held across the street from the hotel in Grant Park during that August week.

The keycard used to open the hotel room door also appears to have been used when Paddock's auto had left the casino carpark.

There is no evidence she was involved in the shooting, according to police officials, but officers would like to speak to her to establish a timeline of the killer's movements in the days before the atrocity.

Mr Le Fevre said Paddock had a room full of guns in his home at Mesquite, Nevada, and was a stringent defender of the second amendment to the United States constitution.

The 64-year-old gambler and retired accountant also researched hotels around Boston's Fenway Park baseball stadium, but there was no indication he travelled to the city, NBC News reported, citing senior law enforcement officials.

Investigators are "confident" that no one else entered the Las Vegas hotel suite before a gunman opened fire on a crowd of thousands of concertgoers, killing 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern us history.

Police say definitively that Paddock had no connection to ISIS and that they're searching "every aspect" of the gunman's background from "birth to death" as they try to piece together what happened.

Investigators do not believe Paddock's mental health had deteriorated to a point that it triggered his horrific shooting spree.

The man behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history may have considered deadly attacks at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and an earlier festival in Las Vegas, investigators say. He headlined the 2017 Life is Beautiful Festival. "We don't know yet", Lombardo said.

Investigators are still searching for a motive but have not got very far.

Police also say Paddock may have planned to escape the scene.
