The documents reveal Danley told investigators they would likely find her fingerprints on Paddock's ammo once they looked into it - which turned out to be true.

Marilou Danley, Stephen Paddock's girlfriend.

"Paddock planned the attack meticulously and took many methodical steps to avoid detection of his plot and to thwart the eventual law enforcement investigation that would follow", the F.B.I. said. But there was no indication that she in fact helped Paddock's plan in any way. Two suspects were arrested in connection with the shooting, and face charges of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and attempted robbery.

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman deleted her Facebook profile within hours of the shooting, according to on Friday.

"Investigators have been unable to figure out why Stephen Paddock would be exchanging messages related to weapons that were used in the attack between two of his email accounts", documents read.

The new unsealed records show new details about the lengths Paddock went to prepare for the attack that left 58 people dead and hundreds others injured.

The first message said, "Try an ar before u buy". Investigators found three cell phones in Paddock's Mandalay Bay hotel suite. Authorities previously revealed that they also found a laptop with no hard drive in the room.

A third message in the exchange said, "for a thrill try out bumpfire ar's with 100 round magazine", seemingly referencing bump stocks, the legal accessories Paddock used to make his high-powered rifles fire automatically at a crowd of 22,000 people at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.

Lombardo says the news conference will provide additional information but not "a keystone" about why Paddock did what he did. Paddock shot and killed himself before officers reached his suite.
