More troubling news has surfaced about Stephen Paddock, the man who killed 58 people and injured hundreds at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas.
According to a TMZ report, Paddock booked two hotel rooms overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival grounds in August. Both were at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago with one booked on August 1 while the other was booked on August 3. They both had an August 6 checkout date, which is the same date the music festival ended.
The Blackstone overlooks Lollapalooza’s main stage and according to the report, Paddock “specifically requested” that his rooms had a view of Grant Park. Paddock reportedly never checked into these rooms. The lineup for the 2017 festival included Chance the Rapper, Arcade Fire, Big Sean, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, Lorde, blink-182 and more.
This news follows reports that Paddock also booked a room around the same time as the Life Is Beautiful event in Vegas, where Chance the Rapper and Lorde were headlining the weekend before Route 91.
