Paddock had checked in to his hotel three days before he killed 59 and injured more than 520 in the deadliest shooting in US history.

Sutton told CBS This Morning: ‘He didn’t bring all that up in one trip and he certainly didn’t have bellmen bring it up. Having been there for three days, he had the time to bring that up probably in either luggage or a golf bag or something of that nature.

‘It’s a little surprising that he could’ve hidden it well enough that when the maid service came in that they didn’t see anything but I think this is all part of the investigatory process that they’re going to have to really delve into.’

According to Stephen’s brother, Eric, he had no political or religious ties.

Speaking in the aftermath of the shooting, he said: ‘If you told me an asteroid fell into Earth, it would mean the same to me. There’s absolutely no sense, no reason he did this.
