Marilou Danley, who returned late on Tuesday from a family visit to the Philippines and is regarded by investigators as a " person of interest", said through a lawyer that the carnage Stephen Paddock unleashed while she was abroad caught her completely unaware.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".

"You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point", Lombardo said.

Paddock killed 58 people and wounded hundreds when he opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel.

"Two explosive videos provided to Your News Wire have also confirmed there were multiple shooters involved in a coordinated attack, and the mainstream media of a 'lone wolf' gunman operating without a motive is a lie".

Investigators are busy reconstructing Paddock's life, behavior and the people he encountered in the weeks leading up to the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said. Lombard said his client was cooperating fully with authorities.

Michael Shackleford, who runs a gambling strategy website called The Wizard of Odds, said based on what is known of Paddock's life, the gunman seems to have been what the casinos refer to as a "premium mass" player - one who bets in higher amounts, with a better understanding of the game than the typical player.

"Australia will support the US authorities in their investigation in whatever way we can, but we have not had contact with Marilou Danley directly".

Paddock may have had some help planning the attack at the country music festival Sunday night, Lombardo said Wednesday night. As for what triggered the massacre, the brother said: "Something happened that drove him into the pit of hell". "I haven't been briefed on what the media reporters are hearing, ".

Paddock's brother, Eric, has described himself as mystified by the attack.

La tribune des supporters lillois s'effondre à Amiens, match interrompu
Les services de police nous avaient prévenu que 200 ultras très énervés étaient dans le parcage réservé aux Lillois. Elle devra "déterminer pourquoi il y a eu cette rupture" , affirme à l'AFP le procureur Alexandre de Bosschère .

Danley first arrived in the Philippines on Sept. 15, according to immigration documents there. The 64-year-old also had plans to escape, which means he had planned the attack meticulously.

Trump, touring a hospital in Las Vegas, told reporters Paddock was "very demented".

Authorities are investigating reports that while she was in the Philippines, Paddock wired her $100,000. All but three of those weapons were bought in a single month, October 2016, according to Lombardo.

He added: "We don't have authority over her [Danley] because the crime was committed in the US".

"There is no indication that there is any link whatsoever", the official told Newsweek.

The sisters, who spoke on condition of anonymity, also insisted Danley didn't know anything about the shooting. "We don't know yet", he said. "I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him".

The FBI refused to talk about its conversation with Danley. However, there is still no evidence to indicate terrorism, such as connections to extremist groups, or an accomplice.

Discerning Paddock's motive has proven especially baffling given the absence of the usual indicators that have emerged in other mass shootings.

Public records on Paddock point to an itinerant existence across the U.S. West and Southeast, including stints as an apartment manager and aerospace industry worker. He then took his own life. They then breached the door to the second room in the suite, but no one was there. About two dozen weapons were found inside the room where he fired down on a crowd of 22,000.
