Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend 'sent away' before his massacre

Marilou Danley, 62, was out of the U.S. when Paddock massacred 59 people by opening fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday (Monday NZ time), but it was not immediately clear if the money was for her.

But as CrimeOnline previously reported, a manager at a Starbucks who frequently saw the couple together said that Paddock was verbally abusive to his girlfriend. The FBI is trying to bring her back to the United States.

Investigators have plenty of evidence but nothing yet that points to a motive in the shooting.

The sisters of Australian woman Marilou Danley say the Las Vegas gunman sent her away so he could plot his massacre at Mandalay Bay hotel.

A search of Paddock's vehicle turned up a supply of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer that can be formed into explosives and was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing of a federal office building that killed 168 people, Lombardo said earlier.

The other sister said Danley, who arrived late Tuesday in Los Angeles from the Philippines, "didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines, until Steve said, 'Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines'". Paddock killed himself before police reached his hotel room.

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

Although Las Vegas police had said early on Monday Ms Danley was "no longer being sought out as a person of interest", Sheriff Joseph Lombardo later said "We are continuing the investigation into that female".

Danley's boyfriend Stephen Paddock was the gunman. She was out of the country the night the shooting happened.

When asked why the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not bringing her back to the U.S. from the Philippines the sheriff replied: 'That is occurring'.

Danley, an Australian citizen reported to have been born in the Philippines, has not been charged in the case and told her family she has a "clean conscience" following the Las Vegas attack, her brother said in an interview with ABC News in the Philippines. The FBI is working with Philippine authorities to determine details.

Danley in February 2015 filed a joint petition for divorce with her now ex-husband, whose surname she has kept, court records show.

Matthew Lombard, a Los Angeles attorney hired by relatives to represent Danley, declined to comment.

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.

The rifles, shotguns and pistols were purchased in four states - Nevada, Utah, California and Texas - Snyder told reporters at an evening news conference. 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.

A raid on the home they shared discovered 23 additional firearms, explosives and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
