Las Vegas Gunman May Have Targeted Lollapalooza & Life Is Beautiful Festivals

In early August, Paddock booked a room at Chicago's 21-story Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the park where the Lollapalooza music festival was being held, a law enforcement official said Thursday.

TMZ reported Thursday that Paddock reserved rooms on the park side of the hotel, with a clear view of the concert stages, for August 1 through August 3 but never showed up.

Marathon organizers said the most important thing people can do is call 911 if they see anything suspicious.

On Wednesday, FBI agents trying to understand his state of mind questioned his girlfriend, 62-year-old Marilou Danley, who was out of the country during the attack.

In the days after the attack, it remained unclear why Paddock carried out his attack.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo confirmed the report in a press conference on Wednesday. Her lawyer, Matt Lombard, said his client was co-operating fully with authorities. He says investigators have recovered items and video from the hotel.

The official was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity after being briefed on the investigation. "We're the city of big shoulders, we put on big events.and people enjoy them.this is where Chicago can shine and is capable", said Emanuel.

Ms Danley said Paddock had bought her an airline ticket to visit her family and wired her money to purchase property there, leading her to worry he might be planning to break up with her.

She said she loved Paddock as a "kind, caring, quiet man" and hoped they would have a future together.
