Paddock rented a room in downtown Las Vegas about the same time as an alternative music festival on September 22-24, where artists including Lorde, Chance the Rapper and Muse performed, but police do not know why.

Police said the reasons why Mr Paddock committed the atrocity is still unknown and whether there were any possible accomplices remains a mystery, although it was likely he "had some help".
