Marilou Danley, Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, returns to US

Marilou Danley, Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, returns to US

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

"The people he loved, he took care of and as he was descending into hell, he wanted to try and take care of her", he said.

Glamorous and youthful, Marilou Danley is the 64-year-old Filipino-Australian friend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock. The Australian national reportedly left the country before Paddock left for Las Vegas, where he is responsible for the deaths of 59 people and wounding more than 500 others. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

Danley is considered a "person of interest" in the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in US history. Danley had arrived in the Philippines from Tokyo on September 15, then left for Hong Kong on September 22, and flew back to the Philippines on September 25, Mangrobang said.

"It happened a lot", Esperanza Mendoza, the supervisor of the Starbucks inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite, Nevada, told the Los Angeles Times.

"It was pre-planned, extensively, and I'm pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome", Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said. It's now not know why Paddock wired the money. "She is now a person of interest". Investigators found a computer and 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Danley was in her native Philippines on Sunday night when Paddock opened fire on a crowd of thousands who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert.

Baristas told the paper they would wince when Paddock came in with Marilou Danley, because he regularly belittled and berated her in front of customers and staff.

The latter attack was previously the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

At a late-night press conference Tuesday, authorities said Paddock, a high-stakes gambler and retired accountant, made his attack even more deadly by adding more lethal components to his weapons.

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

Las Vegas Police said they would next provide an update on the investigation at 1 p.m. PT (1900 GMT).

Danley had lived in Mesquite, Nevada, with Paddock.

They said they were surprised to learn Danley had gone to the Philippines two weeks ago.

"This investigation is not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock", the sheriff said. He said he expected to release a statement Wednesday afternoon. Police said they're investigating the source of the leaked photos.
