Metropolitan Police Department investigators noticed that Marilou Danley, the gunman's girlfriend, who was in the Philippines at the time, set her Facebook account to private at 12:30 a.m. on October 2 and had deleted the account by 2:46 a.m., according to an affidavit included in more than 300 pages of documents handed over Friday by federal prosecutors after U.S. District Judge Jennifer Dorsey ordered them unsealed.
Drapes billow out of the room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino following a deadly shooting at the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas. According to reports, Paddock killed himself at the scene.
Though many details in the more than 300 pages of documents - which were unsealed in response to requests from media organisations - were previously known, the filings capture both Paddock's actions before the massacre and what law enforcement officials would do in the aftermath.
Paddock used anonymous communications devices, including a prepaid cellphone.
Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danely, told investigators that her fingerprints would likely be found on Paddock's ammunition because she "occasionally participated in loading magazines". Authorities say he left a note before he killed himself but no motive has been revealed.
Meanwhile, emails reviewed by investigators have confirmed that Paddock sent an unspecified amount of money to Danley in September, the Review-Journal reported.

Stephen Paddock's emails were disclosed in affidavits unsealed Friday after several media organizations, including The Associated Press, fought for their release. The FBI said there was no evidence that she knew of his plans or had been deceptive, but it cautioned soon after the shootings that she was still the "subject of intensive review".
An FBI agent tells a judge in warrant documents made public Friday that Marilou Danley wasn't arrested when she returned to the US from the Philippines days after the October 1 shooting, and that she was cooperating with investigators. Two were unlocked, but "neither contained significant information that allowed investigators to determine the full scope of Stephen Paddock's planning and preparation for the attack".
Danley spoke with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents after returning to the United States.
The pages of documents made public Friday after lawsuits filed by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and other media outlets include requests from investigators for information found on social media accounts linked to Paddock and Danley. In one affidavit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation notes that Danley's Facebook account was set to private and then deleted in the hours after the shooting.
Warrants also showed that investigators found an email address identified by investigators as Paddock's where he received a message from an account identified as CentralPark4804@gmail.com that read, "for a thrill try out bumpfire ar's with 100 round magazine".
Another document said Paddock apparently sent messages between separate email accounts with similar names referring to buying and selling assault-style rifles and so-called "bump stock" devices to make the guns more rapid-fire.
