LAS VEGAS — Defense attorneys Tuesday wondered if the Las Vegas Strip mass shooter’s Filipina girlfriend was unfairly being singled out after police lawyers claimed in court that criminal charges may still be in the case.

Las Vegas attorney Craig Drummond described the police statement as “bold when the only person whose name or inference has been put in the news is [the mass killer’s] girlfriend,” the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/lawyers-claim-puts-attention-on-las-vegas-shooters-girlfriend/

Marilou Danley was initially considered a person of interest after her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, opened fire on a concert on October 1 from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay room, killing 58 people before fatally shooting himself. But she agreed to cooperate and has publicly said she had no knowledge of his bloody plans.

Girlfriend of mass killer Stephen Paddock lands at Los Angeles airport flanked by police

The girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock was being quizzed by FBI agents today in the hope she will reveal the motive behind the shooting spree that left 59 people dead at a country music concert.

Marilou Danley, 62, was met by federal investigators when she touched down at Los Angeles Airport on a flight from the Philippines.

The US authorities remain baffled why Paddock, a 64-year-old retired accountant with no criminal record and no history of violence, would plan and carry out the worst mass shooting in American history.

While Ms Danley was not formally arrested, she was described as ‘a person of interest’ by Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, whose department is leading the investigation.

Girlfriend of Las Vegas mass killer arrives back in US and ‘vows to clear her name’

The girlfriend of Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock has arrived back in the US and wants to ‘clear her name’.

Marilou Danley, 62, was out of the country when Paddock carried out the massacre from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

She spoke to investigators hours after the shooting after they found her casino card beside Paddock’s body and circulated her name and picture as a ‘person of interest’.

Marilou, who had been living with Paddock for several years, is believed to have been in the Philippines visiting family for several weeks.

Cops have reiterated that she is not a suspect but they are hoping she can offer some insight into the killer’s motive.

Airport authorities in Manila confirmed she left last night on Philippines Air flight PR102 and arrived at Los Angeles Airport at 7.32pm on Tuesday.

It’s understood Marilou, an Australian national, was met there by FBI agents.

Las Vegas Shooting: Gunman’s Girlfriend Arrives in US and Is Expected to Be Questioned

A federal law enforcement official earlier said two rifles were outfitted with scopes and set up on tripods in front of two big windows. Another official said that among the weapons were AR-15-style assault rifles. Both officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge details of the investigation.

Sheriff Lombardo said that Mr. Paddock brought at least 10 suitcases into his hotel room over a period of time.

The sheriff said that Mr. Paddock fired through his hotel room door at security guards, striking one in the leg. The guard is still alive, he said. SWAT officers went in after the guard was shot.

In addition to the weapons at the hotel, the sheriff said the police retrieved 19 firearms, as well as explosives, several thousand rounds of ammunition and “electronic devices” from Mr. Paddock’s home in Mesquite,

Nephew of Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend stunned by massacre

The nephew of Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend was left with an unremarkable impression of the future mass killer when the Aussie met him in Vegas a few months ago, according to a report.

Jordan Knights of Queensland was traveling in the US with his mother, Amelia Manango, when they stopped in Sin City to visit her sister, Marilou Danley, Nine News reported.

The 23-year-old and his mom were the first of Danley’s relatives to meet Paddock, a retired accountant and gambling addict with whom she shared a home in Mesquite, Nevada, about 80 miles from Vegas.

Knights said he noticed nothing unusual about the man who would become America’s worst mass murderer.

“It seemed like he just looked after my aunty, and that was it,” Knights said.

The young man said he was shocked to see his aunt’s name in news reports after the slaughter.

“I was like, ‘What the heck?’ It was crazy,” Knights said.

‘Here I am, 26, with no friends, no job, no girlfriend’: Shooter’s manifesto offers clues to 2015 Oregon college rampage

Laurel Harper remembered her 26-year-old son as perpetually mad at the world.

“I mean, he was born angry, pretty much,” said the mother. “I mean, even the doctor said this is one angry baby.”

At age 5, he tried to jump out of her moving car, she said. In his later years, he was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which can limit social development and lead to behavioral meltdowns. He took medications but by age 18 gave them up because of side effects.

He continued to rage. “I would just try to, try to, like, defuse,” she said. “And there was one time when he pointed a shotgun at me.”
