Paddock left virtually no digital trail, police say, baffling investigators as they struggle to discern the motive for the shooting.

Workers board up a broken window at the Mandalay Bay hotel, where shooter Stephen Paddock conducted his mass shooting along the Las Vegas Strip on October 6, 2017.

On October 1, Paddock's brother, Stephen, carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds of others when he opened fire from the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.

Bruce Paddock, 59, is accused of being in possession of more than 600 child pornography images, and is facing 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.

It's believed that Paddock himself removed the hard drive before shooting himself, sources told ABC News, and the device has not yet been recovered.

Although Paddock was homeless during the investigation, recent findings helped the LAPD locate him at a North Hollywood nursing home, where he was arrested. Without the hard drive, it is impossible to know whether Paddock actually used the software or not.

He has been detained at the Los Angeles Police Department's Metropolitan Detention Centre, with bail set at $60,000.

Information from friends and family has proven hard to come by as Paddock was somewhat of a loner. His father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was a notorious bank robber who was on the FBI's Most Wanted list for almost a decade.
