Stephen Paddock Reportedly Booked Hotel Room Overlooking Lollapalooza

News accounts report that the killer-whose name Best Classic Bands has chosen not to acknowledge-actually booked a hotel room in Chicago, which overlooks Grant Park where the 2017 Lollapalooza music festival was held.

Among the 400,000 people who packed the venue in the Windy City was Malia Obama, 19, the former president's and Michelle Obama's oldest daughter.

The website reported that Paddock never showed up for his reservation.

The officials said he researched the Lollapalooza concert event in Chicago, which is held from August 3-6. However, officials have repeatedly said that they have so far found absolutely no links to global terror groups and have cast doubt on the claim.

In a rather tone-deaf move, she told San Francisco audiences in late August that she had Trump could still be a good president . Asked on Sunday if she would run, she declined to answer telling NBC's " Meet the Press " that she was "close" to a decision.


Paddock appeared to have booked other hotel rooms before his deadly mass shooting rampage in Las Vegas, according to police.

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.

And he had tried to book rooms with views over another festival in Vegas just days before the massacre.

TMZ also reported the news.

Las Vegas officials, meanwhile, have not addressed the media reports, although according to CBS Boston, they are expected to elaborate more on Paddock's search history later Thursday.

Law enforcement is also looking into whether Paddock rented several units in a high-rise building overlooking another music festival held the weekend before he carried out the attack on the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Paddock, who lived in Mesquite, Nevada, fired on the crowd of 22,000 for about 10 minutes, and killed himself as police closed in on him, authorities have said. From the first shots that rang out, it took officers 75 minutes to find Paddock dead in his room.

Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle, along with fertilizer that can be used to make explosives and 50 pounds of Tannerite, a substance used in explosive rifle targets. "We always work with our federal, state and local partners to ensure the safety of the public and continue to do so", Shaw said in a statement.

Police also say Paddock may have planned to escape the scene.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said the gunman would have had to be a "superhero" to have pulled off the massacre alone.
