A glimpse inside the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room

A glimpse inside the Las Vegas shooter's hotel room

Law enforcement officials say Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines before he opened fire on a country music festival crowd Sunday in the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

He killed 59 people at a concert below and injured more than 500 others, in what has become the worst USA mass shooting in modern history.

"We have located the vehicles in question, and we are confident we have located the female person of interest", the LVMPD said on its official Twitter account.

Ms Danley is expected to return to the United States on Wednesday (local time).

A counter-terrorism expert from New Hampshire spoke to News 9 about the Las Vegas mass shooting and broke down how the shooter may have planned the attack.

The father of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was previously on the FBI's Most Wanted list, law enforcement officials confirmed to CNN on Monday. The police found his body on the 32 floor of the Mandalay Bay, a hotel-casino next to the concert venue.

So far, police believe Paddock acted alone - which could make the motive harder to determine.

Investigators are still trying to trace the 100,000 USA dollars (£75,000) Paddock transferred to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, and are also looking into a least a dozen reports over the past several weeks that said he had gambled more than 10,000 dollars per day, a U.S. official said. All but three of the dead had been identified by Tuesday afternoon.

Police had no prior knowledge of the gunman before the attack, nor is there any known link to overseas terrorism or terror groups, a U.S. official with knowledge of the case said.

But the Federal Bureau of Investigation said they saw "no connection" between Paddock and worldwide terror groups. All told, authorities uncovered 47 weapons.

Filipino-born Marilou Danley, 62, lived with Paddock at his home in a Mesquite retirement community where authorities searching the residence found a cache of 19 additional weapons. "We are making arrangements to contact her upon her return". Donald Judy, who was Paddock's neighbor in Florida from 2013 to 2015, said Paddock told him that he was doing real estate speculation in Southeast Asia. She described Danley as a "wonderful" person who would never have been involved in such a plot.

According to Danley's LinkedIn, she had worked previously at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno as a hostess.
