Vegas killer led 'secret life' that made him lots of money

When the cops raided Paddock's hotel suite, they discovered he had 23 guns in the room.

This news comes on the heels of a report that Paddock tried to reserve a room in Downtown Las Vegas during the Life is attractive outdoor music festival. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill urged people to call (800) CALL-FBI, who has the information about Paddock's action and his plans.

Even the No. 2 official in the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday he was surprised investigators have not uncovered more about why a man with no obvious criminal record would cause so much bloodshed.

"His bravery was wonderful because he remained with our officers, providing them the key pass to access the door and continued to help them clear rooms until our officers demanded he seek medical attention", said Lombardo.

Paddock's hotel suite was on the 32nd floor of the hotel, looking down on the crowd across the street.

The note has not shed any light on the gunman's motives, which authorities are yet to uncover almost a week after the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

Marilou Danley's comments came hours before police suggested Stephen Paddock had been living "a secret life". Lombard said his client was co-operating fully with authorities.

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.

In a statement through an attorney, Marilou Danley said she didn't know he planned to carry out a mass shooting.

The investigators are still searching the motive for the Las Vegas massacre.

It was also revealed Wednesday that Danley had been out of the country during the time of the attack because Paddock had bought her a "cheap" ticket to her home country of the Philippines in mid-September, according to her statement.

Back in her home country, Danley began to worry when Paddock wired her a large sum of money - something he said was for her to buy a house with. "I was just doing my job", he said.

Vice President Mike Pence was also in Las Vegas Saturday, there to attend a ceremony honoring the victims killed or wounded in the attack.

"What I can not confirm to you today and what we continue to investigate is whether anyone else would have known about this incident before he carried it out", Las Vegas Metro Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters. Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in any way, I will do.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told CNBC that the lack of a clear motive was a "surprise" in this mass shooting.
