Hundreds of pages of court documents unsealed Friday in the case of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock offer a blueprint of investigators' pursuits in determining how and why the reclusive high-stakes gambler carried out the deadliest shooting in modern US history.

An hour before Las Vegas cops released Stephen Paddock's name, Danley deleted her Facebook account, according to newly released documents about the October 1 mass murder of 58 people attending an outdoor country music concert on the Strip.

"The release of these documents is a good start toward complete transparency for records related to the October 1 shooting", Review-Journal Managing Editor Glenn Cook said.

The search warrants also covered electronic accounts and social media accounts of Paddock and Danley. Agents said their initial search found "a large quantity of ammunition and multiple firearms" on the property. She was out of the country when the attack happened, and Danley said after the shooting that she was in the Philippines at the time because Paddock had bought her a ticket to visit family.

The FBI document, filed six days after the shooting, says authorities had no evidence suggesting Danley had any criminal involvement in the massacre.

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.

U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey allowed the government to keep one affidavit sealed pending a hearing before a Nevada judge on Tuesday about whether Las Vegas police search warrant documents should also be made public. We have huge selection.

The FBI affidavit states that when investigators took a DNA sample from Danley, "she spontaneously stated that her fingerprints would likely be found on Paddock's ammunition because she occasionally participated in loading magazines".

Later that day another email read: "We have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try".

The FBI investigates the scene on the 32nd-floor of the Mandalay Bay on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, in Las Vegas.

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.

Paddock used anonymous communications devices, including a prepaid cellphone.

Email records reviewed by investigators confirm Paddock transferred an undisclosed amount of money to Danley in September for unknown reasons.

Included in the documents was a Paddock apparently sent himself in July, from two different accounts, which read like weapons advertisements and mentioned AR rifles and bump stocks. The third phone, a ZTE model with a Google operating system, was locked and can not be forensically examined, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation hoped to glean more information off it via Google.
