Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, had a wealth of $ 1.3 million at the time of his death
The Las Vegas gunman had a mysterious fortune worth more than $ 1.3 million in a dozen separate bank accounts at the time of his shooting spree.
Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, also owned an impressive collection of guns and firearms accessories, which he found in his home and in his hotel room in Mandalay Bay, where he launched his attack, valued at $ 62,000.
Las Vegas police said Paddock kept his money in 14 bank accounts and spent $ 1.5 million in his last two years, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
After his shooting spree on October 1, 2017, Paddock took his own life and left no will, letting his mother inherit his fortune.
She decided to give the money to the families of the 58 people killed in the horrible shooting.
Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay hotel and threw a barrage of bullets at a Las Vegas music festival, killing 58 people and wounding 800 others.
After 10 months of investigation, the investigation of the shooting was closed in August when the police could not determine the motive behind the attack of the lone gunman.
He also had a large collection of weapons and accessories worth $ 62,000. The police found $ 41,000 in weapons in his suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas from where he launched his shooting. Your hotel room in the photo above

It is unclear if the authorities will sell their arsenal of weapons, which is still in the custody of the FBI.
& # 39; What will be done to them is yet to be determined. We still have not been able to obtain them, and we do not know if we will ever do it. We just listed them so everyone knows they are inheritance goods, "said Alice Denton, the lawyer who works in the Paddock succession case.
"Due to the highly sensitive nature of the tragedy and this legalization, it would be my personal preference that we ask the court at some point to destroy them, but we have not reached that point yet," he added.
His estimate of his fortune was revealed in a recent court filing and shows that more than $ 455,000 remained in the 13 Paddock bank accounts at the time of his death. In the largest amount left in an account was $ 102,584.51 and the smallest was $ 30.95.
The presentation only mentioned 13 accounts, but Las Vegas police previously reported that they had 14 bank accounts.
He retired at the time of the shooting and previously worked as a real estate investor, property manager, accountant and was an avid player.
The investigation into the massacre was closed in August without a specific reason

Two of his Mandalay Bay gaming bonuses from October 1 were also added to his estate, one worth $ 29,000 and another worth $ 226.50.
In the last two years he spent the huge amount of $ 1.5 million on casinos, bills to credit card companies, gun purchases, and his girlfriend Marilou Danley, who received three separate transfers from Paddock for a total of $ 150,000 in September 2017.
When the police broke into the Paddock hotel room, they found about $ 41,000 in guns and firearms accessories. When they checked their home in Reno they found about $ 3,000 in guns and firearms accessories there and another $ 18,000 in guns or accessories at their Mesquite residence.
Their homes in Reno and Mesquite, Nevada were valued together at about $ 758,000 and in July a judge allowed them to be sold. However, no offers have been made and both residences remain in the market.
Another audience is scheduled for next week that will reveal more details of Paddock's wealth.
