Lombardo said he found it hard to believe that the arsenal of weapons, ammunition and explosives recovered by police in their investigation could have been assembled by Paddock completely on his own.

"You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point", Lombardo said.

Paddock, 64, killed at least 58 people and injured 527 others Sunday night in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Authorities say he set up cameras in the peephole of the door and outside the room to watch for police closing in on him.

A lawyer for Marilou Danley read a statement from her after she was questioned by FBI agents in Los Angeles about her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock. And it wasn't Paddock; she said the man was Hispanic.

Lombardo said Wednesday that more than 30 of those guns were purchased in the past 12 months, suggesting an event in his life may have triggered him to stockpile weapons.

Paddock's brother, Eric, has described himself as mystified by the attack.

"It'd crazy for there to be one in the hotel room", he said. They do not know if she is connected to the attack, but want to speak with her to fill in their timelines of the lead-up to the attack.

He intended to escape after the attack, but he instead turned the gun on himself as authorities closed in on his room on the 32nd-floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

"I can't get into the mind of a psychopath at this point", Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said.

Yesterday, Ms Danley's nephew Jordan Knights told 9NEWS he had met Paddock on a recent trip to the US to visit his aunt. He appeared to be settling in to a quiet life when he bought a home in a Nevada retirement community a few years ago.
