Las Vegas Massacre: Probe turns to gunman's girlfriend in Philippines

Las Vegas Massacre: Probe turns to gunman's girlfriend in Philippines

Although police said they had no other suspects, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said investigators wanted to talk with Paddock's girlfriend and live-in companion, Marilou Danley, who he said was traveling overseas, possibly in Tokyo.

Stephen Craig Paddock, who shared his Nevada home with Ms Danley, checked into the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in the casino city on Thursday and provided her identity details.

The gunman allegedly wired $100,000 to the Philippines days before the attack, but USA authorities are unaware when the transfer happened or who the recipient was.

"It's a nice, clean home and there's nothing out of the ordinary", the Mesquite police spokesman said.

Authorities later said they had contacted Ms Danley while she was travelling outside the U.S. and determined that she did not participate in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

The other sister said Danley, who arrived back in the United States from the Philippines on Tuesday, "didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines, until Steve said, 'Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines'". "It just blew me away", he said.

No one knows why Paddock gunned them down.

Some law enforcement officials said she was the gunman's "roommate".

"It happened a lot", she said.

Snyder said Paddock had rigged 12 semi-automatic rifles with devices that allowed the guns to fire like an automatic weapon.

Zarif in Oman for talks, ahead of scheduled Qatar trip
During the meeting both sides discussed bilateral ties, regional issues like Syria, Yemen and developments in northern Iraq. But in August, Qatar announced it was restoring full diplomatic relations with Iran by returning its ambassador.

"If seen please call 9-1-1!" the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Distirct tweeted shortly after the incident Monday.

One of Danley's former neighbors was shocked.

The devices are legal under U.S. law, even though fully automatic weapons are for the most part banned.

A description not too different from what was offered by the gunman's brother, Eric Paddock.

Esteban Santiago, the man charged with killing five unsuspecting travelers in a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in January, was previously accused of assaulting his girlfriend ― including strangling her. She could reveal more clues about Paddock's motives when investigators interview her.

"Once again, our hearts and prayers are with everyone in Las Vegas and those affected".

Paddock remained on the most-wanted list until 1977.

During a court appearance, Paddock testified that he would have fled the jail "if they had been lax enough to let me go".

Benjamin Paddock was described in an Federal Bureau of Investigation poster as being "diagnosed as psychopathic" and as an individual reported to have "suicidal tendencies" who "has carried firearms in commission of bank robberies".
