Las Vegas shooting: Federal Bureau of Investigation begins questioning gunman's girlfriend

05 October 2017

Reynaldo Bustos said he immediately contacted his younger sister, Marilou Danley, when he saw the news that her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, had allegedly opened fire on a music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing 58 people and injuring 530 others.

Danley, who was overseas while her boyfriend committed the worst mass murder in USA history, is now on her way back to the U.S. to face questions from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

He reportedly met Danley several years ago while she was working at a casino in Reno, Nev. Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

After first describing her as a "person of interest" in the aftermath of the massacre perpetrated by Paddock, Nevada Police have now completely cleared Danley of any connection to the crime. She flew from Manila to Hong Kong on September 22 and returned to Manila on September 25 before flying to Los Angeles Tuesday.

She was expected to be questioned upon her arrival in Los Angeles, the New York Times reported.

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".

"He loved her. He doted on her", the shooter's brother, Eric Paddock said. Investigators found a computer and 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room.

She married American Geary Danley in 1990, and they registered their marriage in Nevada.

As for his girlfriend, travel records obtained by ABC News show Danley, who uses an Australian passport, traveled to her home country of the Philippines on September 15.

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. "She didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said 'Marilou I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines'".

The claims come after Danley returned to the US from the Philippines on Wednesday on an order from police as the search for answers to America's deadliest mass shooting in modern history continues. She was out of the country the night the shooting happened. This investigation has not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock.

Paddock had recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a United States law enforcement source confirmed to CNN.

"We know that the suspect fired over a dozen or so volleys and that the firing ceased about 10.19pm", Las Vegas Metro Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said. 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.

Public records on Paddock point to an itinerant existence across the West and Southeast parts of America, including stints as an apartment manager and anaerospace industry worker.
