Girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman says she knew nothing about massacre plans

Police located two vehicles and were "confident" they located Paddock's roommate, 62-year-old Marilou Danley.

When law-enforcement officers managed to find Paddock in the hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, he was already dead in what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

They were seeking information about Stephen Paddock's attack and any motive that may have led him to amassing an arsenal of 23 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, as well as scopes and video cameras, in his Mandalay Bay hotel room. He said authorities believe Paddock used Danley's identification during his stay at the hotel.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo called for calm after the shooter was taken out, saying that Marilou Danley, a woman he described as Asian and 4-foot-11, has been declared a person of interest following the bloody attack.

Daesh's claim that the suspect in one of the U.S.'s worst mass shootings operated on its behalf is completely without merit, the alleged shooter's brother said Monday. She then moved to the United States in 1989 to work as a hostess in casinos. "And we want to identify that source".

Danley and Paddock lived together in Mesquite but she was in the Philippines when Paddock allegedly carried out Sunday's massacre of 58 people at a Las Vegas country music festival.

Gunman Stephen Craig Paddock, the oldest of four children, was 7 when his father was arrested for bank robbery.




If media Interviews with Ms Danley's family members are any indication the 62-year-old grandmother will tell Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at LA's headquarters she was not aware of Paddock's shocking plan.

Lombardo said the death toll from the Sunday night assault on an open-air concert on the Vegas Strip had risen to 59, while 527 people had been injured.

The investigators are scouring the personal and financial history of the suspected man.

She also said: "He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something disgusting like this was going to happen".

Speaking with their faces blurred to Seven News in Australia, one sister said, "And I know that she don't know anything as well, like us".

Undersheriff Kevin McMahill told reporters the killer also set up two cameras in the hallway outside his room so he could watch law enforcement or security approach.
