Paddock — a filthy-rich accountant turned psycho killer — had taken two chairs from his hotel room and turned them into a holding area for the assault rifles that he used to murder 59 revelers outside his hotel room. He had illegally modified the rifles to get maximum kills in the worst mass shooting in American history.
The photos also revealed how Paddock had stockpiled magazines for his assault rifles at the base of a pillar in the room. It's not clear if the magazines had been emptied or stockpiled for another round of his shooting sprees, but his massive stock of ammo included bullets ranging from those used in hunting rifles to military-grade weaponry.
As seen here, police also found a single sheet of paper carefully placed on a table. Authorities have yet to confirm if Paddock had left a suicide note, but the find suggests that Paddock may have left a note that could reveal his twisted motivations for the slaughtering 59 people and injuring over 500 more.
A hammer was on the floor among the rifles — believed to be used by Paddock to smash open the windows of his suite. The hotel room then became his vantage point to mercilessly fire upon the 22,000 revelers attending an outdoor Jason Aldean concert at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
Marilou Danley, who had been living with Paddock and was out of the country during his savage attack, is also returning to America from the Phillippines to answer questions about the killer's motives.
Meanwhile, Eric Paddock insists the arsenal in his brother's hotel room is a mystery. 'He had a couple of guns," Eric insisted, "but they were all handguns, legal — he might have had one long gun, but he had them in a safe."
