Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend has left Philippines for US

He said authorities believe Paddock used Danley's identification during his stay at the hotel.

USA authorities want to interview the Australian-Filipina girlfriend of Las Vegas mass-murderer Stephen Paddock when she returns to the US.

Travel records obtained by ABC News show that Danley, who travels on an Australian passport, arrived in Manila on September 15, two weeks before the shooting.

While authorities have not announced the type of weapons of Paddock used Sunday night, Paddock had a total of 23 weapons with him in a Mandalay Bay hotel room.

"We went back into the gunfire and started looking for priority victims, people with the most serious injuries to get to the hospital", Taylor Winston, a concertgoer, said.

Although police said they had no other suspects, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said investigators wanted to talk with Paddock's girlfriend and live-in companion, Australian Marilou Danley, who he said was travelling overseas, possibly in Tokyo.

Baristas told the paper they would wince when Paddock came in with Marilou Danley, because he regularly belittled and berated her in front of customers and staff. "So they definitely want to hear from her what was going on in his life".

Occasionally, Paddock shared news of his gambling winnings, his brother said, recalling a photo text message he received showing a $40,000 payout. Officials aren't able to see yet the precise date of the transfer and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now working with Philippine authorities over the matter, the source said. Were there associates that were obtaining the weapon for him?

Three days after Paddock gunned down 58 people, Marilou Danley was interviewed at the FBI's office in Los Angeles and had her attorney with her, according to a law enforcement official who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Donald Judy, who was Paddock's neighbor in Florida from 2013 to 2015, said Paddock told him that he was doing real estate speculation in Southeast Asia.

Local news site Rappler was able to look at Danley's Facebook page before she took it down. The couple had a daughter and a granddaughter but filed for divorce in 2015.

Danley's sisters, who live in Australia, do not believe she knew of her partner's deadly plans.

"She is a good and gentle person", Waltrip said.

"I know that she don't know anything as well like us".

It was in a casino where Paddock met his girlfriend, who was a high-limit hostess for Club Paradise at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Eric Paddock said.
