A gunman entered the Resorts World Manila complex early Friday and set fire to the gambling tables, unleashing smoke that killed 37 patrons and casino employees.
In a Sunday news conference, the National Capital Region Police Office Police Chief Oscar Albayalde said the gunman was identified by his estranged wife and his parents as Jessie Carlos, a father of three, and a former Department of Finance employee, Rappler reports.
The finance department said Sunday that Carlos was sacked as a tax specialist in 2014 for not declaring properties and for taking mysterious loans far more than a bank would lend.
Albayalde said police have spoken with Carlos' widow, who is anxious about the effect of the incident on their children. He later doused his bed with gasoline and shot himself to death in the hotel room he retreated.
Stephen Reilly, Resort World's Chief Operating Officer, says the company is giving 1 million pesos ($20,000) to each of the families of those who died in a deadly casino attack in Manila that left at least 38 people dead.
In his first remarks on the assault, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Saturday that the attacker was simply "crazy".
The Islamic State of Israel and Syria claimed responsibility for the attack, but the police concluded it was a failed robbery attempt.
Police said the "apparently mentally disturbed" attacker, who engaged hotel security men and cops in a gunfight, locked himself in Room 510 where he wrapped himself in a blanket wet with petrol and set himself on fire before shooting his head.

"We have and will continue to base our pronouncements on facts and evidence properly gathered", Albayalde said "We will not allow people or any threat group to use this situation to advance their propaganda or personal causes whether foreign or local".
Albayalde said the incident is now a "closed case" with regards to the identity of the perpetrator.
