64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at a Las Vegas country music festival on the night of October 1, killing at least 58 people and wounding 515.
He lived there with Marilou Danley, 62, who Eric Paddock said was his brother’s girlfriend.

Danley lived with Paddock at a home in Mesquite, Nevada.
Patrick Benjamin Paddock, father of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, was a bank robber and prison escapee who once made the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list.
Ahead of Monday’s shootings, Randall Law, who wrote “Terrorism: A History”, said he believed there is a racial component to the United States’ reluctance to clarify or prosecute with domestic terror laws.

Stephen Paddock’s brother, Eric, confirmed their father’s identity in an interview Monday with CBS affiliate WKMG. “He went on cruises and gambled”, Eric spoke of his deceased brother and described him as “not an avid gun guy at all”.
While the shooting lasted for eight to 10 minutes, it was smoke from the gunpowder that set off detectors in the hotel room, pinpointing his location to police.
Marilou Danley, who police are now searching for as part of their investigation, is said to be an Asian woman and approximately 4ft 11ins in height.
Officials think Paddock brought the weapons into the hotel by himself but did not provide specifics.
Police believe he acted alone and his motive is still unclear.
Paddock had bought multiple firearms in the past, several of them purchased in California, a law enforcement official told CNN.
The wife of Stephen Paddock, a time desired by the forces of the order, was located “abroad”, he said.
TV station reporter Jacqui Heinrich tweeted the photographs, which also show a hammer that Paddock, 64, presumably used to smash the windows of his suite to set up his sniper’s perch.
The suspect was a licensed pilot, who owned two planes.
When the final verdict in Paddock’s legal saga came in, and Circuit Judge George Woodrich chose to let him off with a $100,000 fine and no jail time.
