Clark County Under sheriff, Kevin McMahill, said investigators remain largely in the dark after running down more than 1,000 leads seeking clues to what drove a wealthy retiree with a penchant for gambling to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in modern United States history.
Marilou Danley, 62-years old and a former "high-limit hostess" at a Vegas casino, was named a person of interest by Vegas police after they discovered the body of 64-year-old Stephen Paddock inside his hotel room at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
But the evidence that suggests that story can not be revealed to the public yet according to Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo.
"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", said attorney Matthew Lombard as he read a statement by Danley.
Ms Danley also spoke about Paddock displaying "mental health symptoms", according to the other former Federal Bureau of Investigation official.More news: Craig Gordon warns Scotland: We'll have to play better in Slovenia

New reports say the Las Vegas shooter likely had some help, a plan to escape, and possibly another target at a larger music festival. "What we know is that Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life".
The official also disclosed to the AP that Paddock, a high-stakes gambler, took at least a dozen cruises overseas in the last few years, majority with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, the AP reported Saturday. Paddock did not check in to the room and it is unknown whether he was in Chicago that weekend, as first reported by TMZ.
Paddock killed 59 people and wounded over 500 with from his 32nd-floor suite before killing himself as the police closed in. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said.
In Chicago, Paddock didn't just research hotel rooms overlooking an outdoor festivals, he booked some.
Investigators believe that Paddock used bump-stock for the attack as it modifies a semi-automatic weapon to fire at an automatic rate.
