Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi would not confirm the TMZreport about Paddock's plans in Chicago, but said the department is aware of the report.
The same week that the Life is attractive event was set to go down, Paddock sent his live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, home to the Philippines to "spare her life", according to her sisters.
The Boston Globe, quoting anonymous sources, said Paddock may have scouted Fenway Park and other Boston venues before settling on Vegas.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters that Paddock had used Airbnb to book a room at The Ogden. His renting the condo was curious because, as a high-roller, he could have easily gotten a free room at one of the casino hotels on the Vegas Strip. The festival regularly attracts huge crowds, sometimes drawing as many as 100,000 people on each of its four days, and celebrities are regularly spotted among the concertgoers. Paddock had sent Marilou Danley to the Philippines and wired her money.
In the days after the attack, it remained unclear why Paddock carried out his attack.
"We are constantly revising and asking fundamental questions", said Mayor Rahm Emanuel, adding that the marathon would proceed as planned. An unnamed hotel source also confirmed the information to DNAinfo, the publication said.
