The girlfriend of the Vegas gunman, Marilou Danley, 62, who returned to the US yesterday under the request of the FBI, arrived LAX in a wheel chair. During interrogation, she told authorities that she had no idea what her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, 64, was up to before the massacre on Sunday.
She claims that she thought he sent her to the Philippines via a cheap ticket two weeks ago and sent her $100,000 in order to break up with her.
He suggested she visit her family, something she was happy to do, but that the gesture was ‘out of the blue’ she claimed.
She added that when he wired $100,000 to her after a week during her stay there, she began to worry that he was trying to break up with her, she said.
In a prepared statement read out by her lawyer, Matt Lombard, Danley said: ‘I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man. I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him. He never said anything to me, or took any action that I was aware of, or understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen.
