In her first public statement since the Las Vegas massacre took place on Sunday night, Marilou Danley, 62, on Wednesday said Paddock, a retired 64-year-old accountant, had sent her on a trip to the Philippines and wired her money there, but that she did not know he was planning to harm anyone, reports The New York Times.

Paddock transferred $100,000 to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, the AP reported.

After landing in Las Vegas, both Air Force One and the presidential motorcade rolled within sight of Mandalay Bay, the hotel that the sniper used as a perch to fire upon at people attending a music concert Sunday night. Police discovered at least 23 guns in his hotel room, including 20 rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and they believe he used assault rifles converted into fully automatic weapons to fire numerous bullets with a single pull of the trigger.

Lombardo said he is "absolutely" confident authorities will find out what set Paddock off.
