Paddock reportedly reserved one room at the Blackstone Hotel for Aug. 1 and another for Aug. 3, both with an Aug. 6 check out date.

According to the site, Paddock requested "view" rooms, which face Grant Park, but never showed up. "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", he said.

The venue attracts almost 100,000 people per day and has musical acts with huge names such as Chance the Rapper, Blink 182 and The Killers.

We'll be working closely with the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and all of our law enforcement partners to fully investigate any and all potential leads that stem from the ongoing investigation in Las Vegas.

Danley said, "He wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family".

The Blackstone Hotel told HuffPost that there was "no guest under that name who stayed at our hotel in August during the Lollapalooza music festival", but did "confirm that a reservation was made under the name Stephen Paddock".

Police are still trying to work out what drove Paddock to snap and kill so many innocent people.


Stephen Paddock, the man behind the mass shooting that left more than 50 people dead and almost 500 hurt in Las Vegas, may have planned event attacks in Chicago and Boston, according to media reports Thursday. Lombardo said at a news conference. Paddock's stay at The Ogden coincided with the "Life is attractive " music festival, held September 22-24.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events".

"He would always serve as a shining example to all of us about what is just and right, and how we live our lives", said one of his colleagues.

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, according to the Associated Press.

Paddock did not check in for his reservation, she said.

The hotel is cooperating with the authorities on this matter, said Carragher.
