Following the horrific attack in Las Vegas that left at least 59 dead and 527 injured, investigators have been seeking a motive for shooter Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man who open fired on a country music festival from his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel. Paddock assembled a horrifying arsenal in his hotel room, having 23 different firearms (including AR-15-style and AK-47-style rifles) on hand for his killing spree.

According to The Independent, police are examining Paddock’s financial records in an attempt to find a motive. Investigators on the case have uncovered that Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines, the home country of his girlfriend Marilou Danley, just days before the attack. While it is unclear whether or not the money was meant for Danley, she was in the Philippines on Sunday and is expected to return to the United States on Wednesday. Paddock, a heavy gambler, also racked up a number of gambling debts exceeding $10,000 over the past few weeks.
