Marilou Danley, 62, said Paddock, 64, 'would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, "Oh my God,"' according to an ex-FBI official briefed on the situation.

Web - History - Discovery - Today - Events

His web history also led to the discovery, announced today, that he had apparently been scoping out other major events over the past year.

In August he booked a hotel room overlooking Lollapalooza in Chicago - the massively popular rock event that saw appearances by The Killers, Chance the Rapper and Muse,...
