Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend tells family she has 'clean conscience'

Las Vegas shooter's girlfriend tells family she has 'clean conscience'

The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend, back in the United States after a weekslong trip overseas, will be at the center of the investigation into the shooting deaths of 59 people as authorities try to determine why a man with no known record of violence or crime would open fire on a concert crowd from a high-rise hotel.

She was taken out a back way so she wouldn't be seen in public, and she was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents immediately upon landing, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News.

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.

News that Paddock was the man responsible for killing 59 people and wounding more than 500 was shocking to Alarcon.

The official said U.S. authorities were eager to question Danley, who described herself on social media websites as a "casino professional", mother and grandmother, about whether Paddock encouraged her to leave the United States before he went on his rampage.

Danley was in the Philippines at the time of the attack; she had arrived there from Hong Kong on September 25, said Philippines immigration spokeswoman Antonette Mangrobang.

Danley's sisters told Seven News that she was wired $127,000.

The sister said Paddock "done this exclusively himself".

Danley's neighbors said she described herself as a gambler.

The sisters, who were not identified by name and whose faces were blurred, added that Danley would willingly cooperate with investigators.

According to the Brisbane Courier Mail, Danley is an Australian citizen.

Paddock holed himself up on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel on the strip with a cache of 23 weapons and sprayed hundreds of bullets in the deadliest mass shooting in American history. She was out of the country the night the shooting happened.

Danley, 62, is a Philipinnes native and investigators say she likely traveled there to visit family.

"It just makes less sense the more we use any kind of reason to figure it out", Eric Paddock said in a text message on Tuesday.

The latter attack was previously the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history. Law enforcement authorities had been in communication with her and anticipated "some information here from her shortly", he said during a news conference.

At this point, Paddock's motive and aims remain a mystery to investigators. This investigation has not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock.

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. He said he expected to release a statement Wednesday afternoon. 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.
