LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Latest on the mass shooting in Las Vegas (all times local):

The coroner says an autopsy has been done on the man who authorities say rained gunfire on a concert crowd from a Las Vegas Strip hotel suite and shot himself dead before police burst into his room.
    
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU'-den-berg) didn't say Monday when Stephen Paddock's body would be released to his family or how long it will be before forensic and toxicology results are made public.
    
Fudenberg told The Associated Press he can't speak at this time about a cause of death, details of the autopsy, or the location of the body because of the ongoing investigation.
    
He says "extensive forensic analysis" is continuing.
    
Paddock's brother, Eric Paddock, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/2yzrWEz) that he wanted to have his brother's remains cremated and the ashes sent to their 89-year-old mother in Orlando, Florida.

More attendees of the music festival in Las Vegas that ended tragically last week after a gunman began shooting into the crowd from his hotel room can now recover the belongings they left at the site as they ran to safety.
    
Clark County Emergency Manager John Steinbeck on Monday said the FBI is now also returning items found in the area west of the stage, which includes the American Disabilities Act seating section and what's being referred to as the "Malibu tent."
    
Steinbeck says people left behind thousands of lawn chairs, hats, wallets, souvenirs, cellphones, purses, boots and several other items.
    
The FBI on Sunday began the process of returning the items lost at the festival grounds. The first items made available were those recovered from in and in front of the VIP tent and bleacher seating east of the stage.
    
Steinbeck says 99 people sought to recover their belongings.
    
Steinbeck says cellphones found have been powered up to facilitate their identification process. Police have asked people who lost their cellphones to text their full name to their phones.

Aldean's wife, Brittany, posted a picture of herself and Jason on Instagram looking at the Mandalay Bay resort, where shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd from his hotel room Oct. 1. She wrote in the caption that seeing the strength of victims helped the couple "try to begin the healing process."
    
The visit came a day after Aldean performed on "Saturday Night Live" in tribute to the victims.
