Authorities say Paddock booked rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago in August and the Life Is Beautiful concert in Las Vegas in September and also researched hotels near Boston's Fenway Park, the home of the Red Sox. The room in the 21-story hotel overlooks Grant Park, where Lollapalooza was being held August 2-5.

"As you saw earlier this week the city conducts extensive public safety planning and training around major events, in close coordination with our law enforcement partners, to ensure public safety", the statement read.

The dates of the reservations covered the four-day event, which drew hundreds of thousands of music fans, including former president Barack Obama's daughters Malia and Sasha, as well as Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines days before the shooting, said a USA official who was not authorized to speak publicly because of the continuing investigation.

People dressed in white gathered in both cities under the slogan "Shall we talk?" in a message to Spain's political leaders. Catalan authorities say the "Yes" vote for secession won by a landslide, although less than half of the electorate voted.

Paddock, 64, broke two windows in his 32nd-floor suite, one of which was in line with the concert site and the other with a direct view of the fuel tanks, a source said.

Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017 - two days before the festival started.

The extent to which Paddock may have profited from his casino gambling was not clear.

Although Paddock killed himself as a SWAT team closed in, the sheriff said it appeared he had planned to survive and had an escape plan.

Because so few people knew Paddock well, investigators will have a harder time probing his background for clues or hints he may have dropped about his plans, Southers said.

The same week that the Life is attractive event was set to go down, Paddock sent his live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, home to the Philippines to "spare her life", according to her sisters.

The official, who was briefed Thursday by federal law enforcement officials, wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. They also said they still have no motive for the attack.

2pm: Sheriff says Marilou Danley is a person of interest again, after report that Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines a week before the attack, while she was in the country.
