Vegas gunman took elaborate steps to hide his tracks, new documents show

Paddock shows his brother Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock. On Sunday Oct. 1 2017 Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest festival killing dozens and wounding hundreds. Paddock left behind little

A federal judge unsealed more than 300 pages of search warrants related to the mass shooting October 1 that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds, but the documents do little to reveal what prompted the attack. Instead, they demonstrate how authorities continue to seek answers to many questions surrounding the actions and motive of gunman Stephen Paddock.

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Stephen Paddock.

Marilou Danley was traveling in the Philippines on October 1 when Paddock fired a barrage of shots from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino. According to an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's affidavit, Danley was "adamant that she had no prior inclination of Paddock's intentions to conduct the attack".

Two of the cellphones were unlocked and authorities were able to examine them, producing no significant information about Paddock's plans or preparations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation wrote.

The documents also showed that Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told investigators before they searched a house that the two shared that they might find her fingerprints on ammunition "because she occasionally participated in loading magazines", the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Danley has denied knowing anything about Paddock's plans.

Las Vegas police officer Aden OcampoGomez and Breault said Friday that they had no update about Paddock's motive.

Not much is known about Danley's and Paddock's relationship, though workers at a Starbucks in a Mesquite casino recalled that he had a habit of berating her in public.

A USA judge in Nevada unsealed the documents, according to CBS News.

Saudi female football fans crack glass ceiling
Saudi labor laws now stipulate that women, with a few notable exceptions, should not work in the hours between sunset and sunrise. Hours before the game, Saudi clubs were seen encouraging women to go to the stadiums through tweets on social media.

Meanwhile, according to the documents, Paddock apparently sent emails to himself in July from four different accounts.

Ten pages of the search warrant documents remained sealed ahead of a Nevada state court hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

One instance where investigators identified two email account attached to him - CentralPark4804gmail.com and CenterPark1live.com - an exchange began with "Try an ar before u buy".

"We have a huge selection in the las vegas area", the message read.

"Investigators believe these communications may have been related to the eventual attack that occurred at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas", the court document read.

The Los Angeles Times reported that investigators were not sure why Paddock would send emails between accounts he controlled, or whether one was controlled by another person.

Authorities also said that investigators searching Paddock's hotel rooms at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, along with his vehicle and homes, found more than 20 guns, hundreds of rounds of unused ammunition, suitcases partially filled with "pre-loaded high capacity magazines", body armor, a homemade gas mask and explosive materials.

The newspaper also said investigators identified an email inbox belonging to Paddock that contained a message from a Gmail account officials believe was related to Paddock's preparations for the attack.
