Las Vegas shooting: Shooter's 'companion an Australian granny'

  • Marilou Danley the alleged girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock is not a person of interest

Paddock's girlfriend, 62-year-old Marilou Danley, was in the Philippines, her native country, Sunday when Paddock began firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

Julie Bishop, the Australian foreign minister, said that the United States authorities had been in touch with Canberra about the woman's whereabouts. Her LinkedIn page said she worked as a "high-limit hostess" at a Vegas casino.

At this time, it is unknown whether the money was intended for Danley, her family, or for another objective.

A little more than an hour later, she had been found out of the country. He said authorities believe Paddock used Danley's identification during his stay at the hotel.

"She had nothing to do with this psycho, "the person said".

Reports said that Danley and Paddock had been sharing the same address since January 2017, as they were roommates in Mesquite, Nevada.

Danley's social media sites showed she was a regular world traveller.

Paddock, who authorities believe killed himself before police were able to apprehend him, had been dating Danley for less than a year. "But obviously, that investigation will continue", Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said.

Cayetano, who is on an official visit in NY, at the same time said that the Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles was monitoring developments and continuously coordinating with authorities in the area to determine if there were any Filipinos among the victims of the deadly incident.

Susan Page, a neighbor of the couple when they lived in Reno, described Paddock and Danley as "closet people" who "kept to themselves", per the Gazette-Journal.

"We are coordinating with Las Vegas police authorities and with leaders of the Filipino community to check on our kababayans (countrymen) there", Consul General Adelio Angelito Cruz said.

In a statement on Monday, California time, Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said the Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles was monitoring developments after the attack. More than 500 people were wounded.

How did Stephen Paddock "lone wolf" pull off Las Vegas mass shooting? Geary and Marilou were married in Las Vegas in 1990.
