Route 91 festival goes dive for cover after the Las Vegas shooting

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who has called her a "person of interest" in the attack, has said detectives "anticipate some information" from Ms Danley shortly.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents greeted the 62-year-old Australian after Philippine Air Lines Flight 102 landed at Los Angeles International Airport around 7:30 p.m. local time Tuesday. Paddock - who reportedly set up cameras in his room and the hotel hallway - shot and killed himself, police learned after sending in a controlled device.

"She's probably one of the most happy, outgoing, full-of-life people I've ever known", Dionne Waltrip, Marilou Danley's former stepdaughter, told the Times.

Paddock and Danley moved around constantly, with properties in Arkansas, Nevada, California and Texas, public records show.

Paddock was found dead in his room of a self-inflicted gunshot wound before midnight, as law enforcement closed in. Paddock's brother Eric told the paper "They were adorable - big man, tiny woman".

Danley's sister said they believe Paddock sent her out of the country so she would not interfere with his plans, Australian media outlets reported on Wednesday.

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock, has arrived back in the USA after flying from the Philippines, police have confirmed.

An unidentified acquaintance of Danley who was contacted by the Reno Gazette-Journal said, "She had nothing to do with this psycho".

As authorities pick apart the life of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, they have come across one major thread of suspicious behavior: how he handled his money. "She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", her sisters said in an interview with Australia's Channel 7 News.

While Danley was away, Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines, according to senior law enforcement officials.

"Ms. Danley was not in the U.S. at the time of the incident and is no longer a person of interest in the investigation", Robespierre Bolivar said in a text message. She is a good person and gentle soul. "I'm paying for your drink, just like I'm paying for you.' Then she would softly say, 'OK" and step back behind him.

Investigators are still piecing together the motives for the shooting that killed at least 58 people and are now focused on one thing: what do we know about Marilou Danley?

Lombardo could not confirm whether the weapons were fully automatic, but did say they were modified to speed up ammunition discharge.
