'Person of interest' in Las Vegas massacre identified from court records

While it's unclear why Haig was named a person of interest, the Journal reported that he spoke to reporters Tuesday outside his home in Mesa, Arizona.

"He said he was going to go put on a light show and I can't remember whether he said "for" or "with" his friends, but that's what he did say".

The judge clarified in the documents that Haig was not "directly related" to the shooting, as Paddock was allegedly a lone shooter.

Douglas Haig is also the name of a business associate on a website called Specialized Military Ammunition.

During a January 20 update on the shooting investigation, Lombardo noted that the FBI has an open investigation into an unnamed person of interest, though he repeatedly said Stephen Paddock was the only shooter.

In October, Haig told Newsweek that when federal agents first contacted him, "I was jumping out of my skin at first".

Originally from the Philippines, Danley lived in Australia for quite some time before moving to the U.S. When she was asked at the time about her involvement in the shooting, she said: "I can't comment at the moment". The shooting further shocked the world when investigators failed to find any sort of motive, even though there was evidence proving that Paddock had planned the shooting for months.

Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish said Tuesday that her staff failed to black out the name in almost 300 pages of documents released to news organizations including The Associated Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal. The Las Vegas Review-Journal was the only publication that received a copy of a document that had Haig's name unredacted. The company sold tracer and incendiary rounds - ones that blow up on impact - for a range of sizes, according to its website.

The newspaper published the name online.

The FBI and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' questions about Haig. Danley was Paddock's girlfriend and was out of the country at the time of the shooting; authorities have said she is cooperating in the investigation and that they do not expect her to be charged with a crime.

On Jan. 19, Sheriff Joe Lombardo released a preliminary report that stated the Federal Bureau of Investigation and police believe Paddock acted alone before committing suicide.

But Paddock's autopsy report was not final and would not be released until it is, the coroner said.

Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on October 1, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800 others.

Sgt. McDonald insisted that he now believes Paddock took his own life before authorities breached his hotel suite, as LVMPD Sheriff Joseph Lombardo has also said since the early days of the investigation.

The Associated Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal are seeking the autopsy records to answer questions including whether there were delays getting medical care for any of the victims who died.
