He also may have scouted out the location, renting a room at the Ogden, a nearby hotel, during the Life is lovely festival a week earlier, Lombardo said.
Investigators are still trying to trace that money and also looking into a least a dozen financial reports over the past several weeks that said Paddock gambled more than $10,000 per day, the official said.
Authorities in the USA, the Philippines and Australia were involved in the search for Danley, who travels on an Australian passport, CNN reported. Paddock committed suicide as police closed in on his location. He lived there with a 62-year-old woman, police said. In all, 104 people were rushed to UMC after the shooting late Sunday night.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Paddock fired through the door of his hotel room and hit a security guard in the leg. The announcement about the Bill came days after the tragic shooting massacre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Officers quickly realized there was no one else in the rooms and announced over the radio that the suspect was down. Police say the shooter killed himself.
"I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man".
She also said: "He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something terrible like this was going to happen". Trump, though, went through with the visit, and before leaving for Puerto Rico said the shooter in Las Vegas was a "very, very sick individual".

Authorities have since identified the gunman as Stephen Paddock , 64, who was later found dead in a hotel room on the Strip. The Gateway Pundit , a far-right website, published a story declaring that the person 4chan had named was the culprit.
Employees at two Las Vegas hotels temporarily were using handheld metal detectors to examine bags in response to a man who had opened fire on an outdoor concert from a suite in a different hotel Sunday.
The Life is attractive festival featured Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182.
"Was he doing pre-surveillance?" "I thought he did an excellent job and the support that he got throughout to heal our nation and bring us back in a time of need". "This is all conjecture at this point", Lombardo said.
Paddock left no suicide note and so far his motivation is unclear.
IS claimed Paddock was one of its "soldiers" but the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it had found no such connection so far.
Investigators want to know if Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, has information that can explain what sparked the massacre.

And it is meant to ensure "equitable impact" - the United States removed all but "essential" personnel from Cuba last week. In Havana, U.S. diplomats have been frantically selling off their belongings at garage sales and on social media.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents met her plane at Los Angeles International Airport and took her away for questioning, two U.S. officials briefed on the case said.
While she was in the Philippines, Danley said, Paddock wired her money that he said was for her to buy a house for her and her family.
She was expected to be questioned upon her arrival in Los Angeles, The New York Times reported.
Law enforcement officials say Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines before he opened fire on a country music festival crowd Sunday in the worst mass shooting in modern USA history. The FBI is working with Philippine authorities to get more details.
"It never occurred to me in any whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", she said. "I will cooperate fully with their investigation".
