Sunday's mass shooting was the deadliest in United States history, killing 59 people and injuring nearly 500 more.

Investigators probing the deadly shooting rampage that unfolded on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday night say that a piece of paper found in the gunman's hotel suite is not a suicide note.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, of the Las Vegas Police, "More than 100 investigators have spent the last 72 hours combing through the life of 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, to produce a profile of someone I will call disturbed and unsafe".

Lombardo, who previously said Paddock probably carried out "a solo act", expressed new thoughts about possible aid the shooter had.

The police have said she is not a suspect.

Two months later, Paddock booked rooms at the 32nd floor in the Mandalay Bay hotel and fired at the crowd attending a music festival, leaving 58 people killed and more than 500 injured.

Asked to comment on the timeline, Vance noted that he returned Kasowitz's campaign donation before meeting with him. A source told Politico that they've been using it "daily" and "pretty much... since they got here".

While many questions are left unanswered, what has become clear is that Paddock planned his attack meticulously.

TMZ reported Thursday that Paddock booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel, located across the street from Chicago's Grant Park, during the same period as the four-day festival.

While investigators do not believe Paddock conspired with an accomplice, they are looking into the possibility that others knew about his plot beforehand, Clark County Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said Friday.

"She said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, 'Oh my God, '" two former Federal Bureau of Investigation officials briefed on the matter told NBC. But Paddock never showed up.

The official said it was unclear whether Paddock ever used the room or was in Chicago at the time. Some of the weapons are believed capable of penetrating police armor.

"I can't get into the mind of a psychopath at this point", he said. Investigators say he brought close 23 guns - a dozen equipped with bump stocks to allow for the release of multiple rounds per trigger squeeze- with him when he checked into a suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
