As ABC News first reported on Monday, Paddock recently sent tens of thousands of dollars to someone in the Philippines, where his girlfriend was at the time of the attack, and authorities are still trying to determine who received that money, sources familiar with the matter said.

Authorities initially believed Marilou Danley was traveling with Paddock at the time of the attack, but have since confirmed she's been traveling overseas since September 25 and was in the Philippines at the time of the attack, NBC reported.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's "regular companion" was an Australian woman who moved to the United States 20 years ago to work on the casino strip, the government confirmed Tuesday.

It's the deadliest shooting in modern USA history, surpassing the attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, last year, in which 49 people were killed. He was arrested in Las Vegas that year and tried to run an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent over with his auto before he was captured. He said that Stephen Paddock did not have a "religious belief" known.

"There's absolutely no way I can even conceive that my brother would shoot a bunch of people he didn't even know", Eric Paddock said.

"He was my brother and it's like an asteroid fell out of the sky", Paddock told CNN. "We haven't had any traffic stops, any law enforcement contact, no arrests or nothing", Averett said. "We've spoken to him and we do not believe that it is involved". Paddock shot himself later that evening after having fired hundreds of bullets from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

He evaded law enforcement for several years after, adopted many aliases, and tried to build a new life as the manager of a "bingo parlor" in Oregon, Fox News reported.

Lombardo said authorities have found no connections between Paddock and any terror groups.

While expressing remorse for those killed and injured, Guns & Guitars Inc. owner Christopher Sullivan explained how Paddock went through the rigors of buying some of his weapons.

Bruce Paddock, Stephen's other brother, was also shocked at his brother's ability to commit such a deadly crime.
