Las Vegas Gunman's Girlfriend Returns To US For Questioning

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's father was bank robber on the FBI's Most Wanted list

The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night to answer serious questions regarding what she knew about Stephen Paddock's deadly massacre.

An official said she was returning to clear her name of any involvement in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Paddock killed 58 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas on Sunday. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

U.S. police say Paddock, who fired at a country music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort, "extensively" planned the massacre.

Danley, 62, who had traveled to Hong Kong on September 25, could fill in some of the blanks when she returns to the USA on Wednesday, the officials said. "She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", one of Danley's sisters told 7 News.

Cops admitted they were not yet sure of the Vegas gunman's motives, with Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo telling reporters: "We have no idea what his belief system was - I can't get into the mind of a psychopath".

The sister said Paddock "done this exclusively himself".

Friends and neighbours have described Ms Danley as a warm and chatty person who has lived and travelled around the world.

Paddock smuggled a cache of 23 weapons into the hotel, including AK-47s and "bump stock" devices to make his guns fully automatic, in 10 separate bags.

According to reports, Danley was born in the Philippines and moved to Queensland, Australia in the 1980's.

Danley was originally called Stephen Paddock's roommate, but later identified as his live-in girlfriend.

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

Paddock ended Sunday night's shooting spree, the deadliest in modern US history, by killing himself. The investigation agency is ascertaining whether the woman had prior knowledge of Stephen Paddock's nefarious plan.

Authorities initially distanced Paddock's murderous rampage from terrorism, but with the lack of a motive, Ms Danley's presence in the Philippines and the money transfer, they refused to rule it out.

Federal, state and local investigators have found no evidence that Paddock had even incidental contacts with foreign or domestic extremist groups, and reviews of his history showed no underlying pattern of criminal behavior or hate speech, the homeland security official said.

But Paddock also had a habit of berating Danley in front of the coffee-chain's employees, according to Esperanza Mendoza. Earlier reports said that Danley was expected to return to US soil on Wednesday. They said they want people to know that social media has spun this out of control and jumped to conclusions that their father was involved.
