According to TMZ, Paddock - the man who killed 58 people and injured almost 500 at a shooting in Las Vegas - booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago during the music festival in early August that was attended by more than 400,000 people - including former first daughter Malia Obama.
On Sunday night, an absolute piece of human shit named Stephen Paddock murdered 59 people and injured hundreds more at Route 91 Harvest, a country music festival in Las Vegas. His rooms were at Chicago's Blackstone Hotel, across the street from Grant Park, the site of the festival.
Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017, 2 days before the August 3 kickoff.
Citing anonymous sources, TMZ said Paddock had never before booked a room at the hotel but requested a "view room" that would face Grant Park.
Life Is Beautiful, a Las Vegas festival that happened on the same site as Route 91 Harvest the previous weekend, may have also been a target.
Just two months after Lollapalooza, Paddock checked into Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
A new update also reveals that Paddock had planned to escape after the Vegas massacre, but instead left behind a note and killed himself once authorities closed in on his hotel room. Paddock apparently never showed up in Chicago.
