Rebecca Wright: We may never know Vegas gunman's motives

Posted October 05, 2017

The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night to answer serious questions regarding what she knew about Stephen Paddock's deadly massacre.

Married and divorced twice, Stephen Paddock most recently lived in Mesquite, Nevada, with his girlfriend Marilou Danley, who police said was out of the country during the shooting.

Marilou is not a suspect and has not been charged with any crime, cops stressed, but it is unclear whether she knew of the shooting.

Marilou Danley, who is believed to have moved in with the Las Vegas mass murderer in his Mesquite, Nev., home earlier this year, was expected to return to the USA today. More than 500 people were injured, some were trampled.

Police said 23 guns were found in Paddock's suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Police said former casino worker Danley was not believed to be involved in the shooting but investigators are hoping she can shed light on Paddock's state of mind and their relationship as they try to find a motive for the sickening attack.

She travelled to the Philippines through Hong Kong on September 25.

Much remains unclear, including whether police will forcibly remove people who are still in the polling stations at a 6 a.m. Sunday deadline and how many of Catalonia's voters will be able to cast ballots amid the central government's crackdown.

The New York Times has reported Ms Danley has a daughter who lives in Los Angeles.

"We anticipate some information from her shortly", Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said earlier Tuesday.

The sister said Paddock "done this exclusively himself".

"She's a good person, a gentle soul, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend", the sister said, adding that Danley was having trouble coping with the tragedy because "she's a very weak person".

Law enforcement officials puzzled on Tuesday over what motivated Paddock, a retiree with no criminal record, to assemble an arsenal in a high-rise Las Vegas hotel and rain gunfire onto an outdoor concert.

Danley is a citizen of Australia originally from the Philippines and still has family there, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said.

Paddock had wired tens of thousands of dollars to someone in the Philippines over the past few months, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

After a mass shooting, or any shooting really, if the murderer happens to be a white dude, he usually gets the "oh he was always so nice and quiet, I can't believe he would do something like this" treatment.

More than two days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, the question of why someone with no known record of violence or crime would open fire on a country music festival was unanswered.

'We are making progress, ' the sheriff said in determining Paddock's motive.

Both Danley and Paddock appear to have been familiar with the location of Sunday's mass shooting.

That's because Paddock had a nasty habit of berating Danley in public.

"I reiterate he has no knowledge of Mr. Paddock or any knowledge as to why Mr. Paddock would do such a disgusting terrible thing", his daughter said. Stanton said Lombard is expected to put out a statement later Wednesday. Police said they're investigating the source of the leaked photos.
