Mesquite, Nevada( CNN) He seemed so ordinary, only another house-hunting retiree, when he strolled with his girlfriend into the sales office of the Sun City development in late 2014. The agents had just what Stephen Craig Paddock was looking for — a 2,000 -square-foot, two-bedroom stucco rambler on a cul-de-sac.

He stood about 6-foot-4 but came across as “low key and relaxed, a good guy, ” one of the real estate agents recalled, speaking on condition of anonymity. Balding and paunchy, Paddock was the opposite of flashy. On his application, he said his income came from “gambling.” He gambled about$ 1 million a year, he told one of the agents.

And he paid money for the house, the agents said — $ 369,022.
