Girlfriend of Vegas Gunman Arrives in US

Girlfriend of Vegas Gunman Arrives in US

It is still unclear whether Danley was the girlfriend of Paddock, who U.S. reports say was going through a divorce before carrying out the massacre which ended when he killed himself.

At the casino in Reno, Nevada, where they met several years ago, Stephen Paddock was a "big fish" and Marilou Danley a petite hostess.

Paddock was responsible for shooting and killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500 others at a Jason Aldean concert across from the Mandalay Bay hotel, according to law enforcement.

Prior to her arrival, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said "we anticipate some information from her shortly".

It is not yet clear when Marilou, an Australian national, left the U.S., but she flew from Hong Kong to Manila on September 25.

Authorities are also looking into a $100,000 money transfer that Paddock had made to the Philippines in the days before the attack too place.

Danley's neighbors said she described herself as a gambler.

While agents met Danley upon landing, she is not officially in custody and is free to go where she pleases.

Born in the Phillippines, Danley moved to Queensland where she married a local man and became an Australian citizen, living on the Gold Coast for around 10 years until the late 1980s.

The shooter's brother shared the same view as Danley's sisters - that his brother wanted his girlfriend far away from the scene of the carnage.

As authorities began investigating the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Marilou Danley quickly became someone they wanted to talk to.

No one knows why Paddock morphed from a retired accountant to the deadliest mass shooter in modern United States history.

A woman lights candles at a vigil on the Las Vegas strip following a mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival in Las Vegas on October 2, 2017.

News reported Monday that Paddock had wired Danley $100,000.

Nearly three days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, investigators appear no closer to answering the question: Why?

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department asked people to avoid the south end of the Strip, saying parts had been shut down as they investigated reports of an active shooter.

"I reiterate he has no knowledge of Mr. Paddock or any knowledge as to why Mr. Paddock would do such a awful frightful thing", his daughter said.

That's because Paddock had a nasty habit of berating Danley in public.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters that he is "absolutely" confident detectives will be able to determine his motive.

Chris Sullivan, the owner of Mesquite's Guns & Guitars shop, issued a statement confirming that Paddock was a customer who cleared background checks and said his business was cooperating with investigators. Investigators then wanted to know who he knew, and did they know about the attack.
