Oct 09, 2017, 00:38
The hotel is located about one block away from the Grant Park concert venue.
The shooter, Steven Paddock reserved two rooms at The Blackstone Hotel during this summer's Lollapalooza Music Festival that took place from August 3 -6.
The details emerged as investigators struggled for a fourth day to explain what led the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler to open fire Sunday night on an open-air country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino on Sunday night (Oct. 1).
TMZ says Paddock, never showed up for his bookings at the hotel.
Meanwhile, Paddock's girlfriend Marilou Danley has arrived back in the U.S. for questioning - releasing a statement in which she has claimed that she was "sent away" to the Philippines by Paddock to prevent her from thwarting his plans.
Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would not confirm the TMZreport about Paddock's plans in Chicago, but said the department is aware of the report. His hotel room had the ideal bird's eye view of the festival grounds and saw the entrance to the festival, which had around 400,000 guests pouring in and out.
At a press conference, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Aaron Rouse said that they have yet to find a link to terrorism.
More officers arrived, some clearing rooms and looking for anyone who had been injured, and breached the door to Paddock's suite at 11:20pm, 65 minutes after the shooting stopped. She was visiting her native Philippines.
