Girlfriend of Vegas Gunman Arrives in US

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the gunman who opened fire on concert-goers in Las Vegas Sunday, arrived back in the United States late Tuesday, multiple law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation said.

The 62-year-old Filipino-born woman landed at Los Angeles International Airport at 7:17 p.m. PT on Philippine Air Flight 102.

The FBI agents will pose two critical questions to Danley: Did she have any idea about what motivated him, and did she have any knowledge of what was about to take place and not alert authorities?

Danley was named a person of interest in the early aftermath of the shooting, but officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department soon said they had spoken to her and she was cleared.

"I understand U.S. authorities have ruled out Australian Marilou Danley as a person of interest".

According to reports by The Associated Press, investigators are looking into $100,000 wired by Paddock to the Philippines days prior to the shooting, as well as financial reports which say the gunman gambled more than $10,000 per day over the past few weeks.

Danley's sister revealed to NBC 7 News that Marilou was "sent away" to her home country of the Philippines by Padock before the deadly shooting.

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.

This is a developing story. "She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", she said.

The shooter, 64, killed at least 58 people and injured 527 others Sunday night in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history. "But that won't be to compensate the [58] people's lives".

Police responded to the incident and found Paddock dead in his hotel room from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot.

Her slot-machine card, which is used to rack up bonuses and other benefits through play, was found in Paddock's suite, according to the Nevada Independent. Here's what we know about her so far.

He made the one hour drive to the hotel and his room on the 32nd floor - which he is believed to have booked in advance as the hotel was sold out that night.

Lombardo said Tuesday he was "absolutely" confident authorities would determine what set off Paddock.

She was previously just referred to as a witness whom they were interested in interviewing.
