Police announced Thursday that they had found a Hyundai Tucson SUV they had been searching for as part of the probe while executing a search warrant at the home in Reno that Paddock shared with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

TMZ reported that Paddock booked two rooms at Chicago's Blackstone Hotel that overlooked the popular Lollapalooza festival in August. This year the festival took place from August 3 to August 6 in Grant Park. Lollapalooza festival ran from August 3-6 this year.

According to TMZ's sources, Paddock never showed up.

United States media, citing multiple anonymous law enforcement sources, reported that searches of the Las Vegas gunman's communications and electronic equipment found that he had scouted locations in both Chicago and Boston. "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".

Investigators are looking into whether gunman Stephen Paddock scoped out bigger music festivals in Las Vegas and Chicago - and perhaps Boston's Fenway Park - before setting up his perch in a casino hotel and raining deadly fire on country music fans.

Asked if investigators had determined why Paddock carried out the attack, he said, "We are not there yet".

The show is set to return for a 10-episode 11th season that will be executive produced by show creator Chris Carter . It didn't feel like we necessarily deliver everything the fans were expecting of us last time, and so it was that.

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.

Stephen Paddock, 64, turned a gun on himself on Sunday after firing hundreds of bullets into the crowd gathered for the final night of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, killing almost 60 people and wounding hundreds.

And he said he felt it was unlikely Paddock could have pulled off the elaborate plan alone, though investigators have no idea who may have helped him.

The suspect had stockpiled weapons in his hotel room.

The amount of festivals held near high-rise hotels and office buildings is not exclusive to Las Vegas and Chicago, and includes multiple festivals nationwide.

"There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events". She said she was devastated by the carnage and would cooperate with authorities as they struggle to get inside Paddock's mind. He was quick to say that MGM Grand Resorts, which owns the Mandalay Bay, is also vigilant about safety. His motive remains unclear. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
