Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend says mass killer would ‘lie in bed SCREAMING at night’ and she …

THE girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has told the FBI he would lie in bed screaming and she feared he had developed mental health problems.

Marilou Danley, 62, said Paddock, 64, ‘would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, “Oh my God,”‘ but insists she had no idea what he was planning, NBC News reports.

Investigators interviewed Danley after she was flown back from the Philippines on Tuesday night and the FBI hopes she will hold the key in finding out why the massacre took place.

After Vegas tragedy, active shooter training takes on new significance

People ducked and froze Sunday on the Las Vegas fairgrounds, news video shows, creating easier targets. Interrupt a shooter’s OODA with chaotic motion, Mertz said, and the loop must start anew. Aggressively messing with a shooter — a runner brushing against him, throwing a pen, frenetic motion — resets the loop repeatedly. Research shows fewer people will die, Mertz said.

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.

Las Vegas Shooter Doesn’t Fit The Typical Mass Murderer Profile

MESQUITE, Nev. (AP) — Stephen Paddock had a penchant for guns, high-limit video poker and real estate deals. His father was a notorious fugitive bank robber. He had a recent live-in girlfriend and two ex-wives and seemed to live a comfortable life in a Nevada retirement community.

His life is the subject of a sprawling investigation into what drove him to show up at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino with at least 10 suitcases filled with guns and open fire from his 32nd floor suite on a country music festival, killing 59 people and injuring nearly 530. Law enforcement and family members could not explain what would motivate a one-time accountant with no known criminal record to inflict so much carnage. Las Vegas police said he had 23 guns at the hotel, including semiautomatic rifles, and 19 at his home along with thousands of rounds of ammunition.

HIDING HOLMES UPDATE: Aurora theater shooter transferred to Pennsylvania prison

DENVER (KKTV) – Where is James Holmes? For more than a year, survivors of the Aurora theater shooting demanded to know.

“This is a clear victims’ rights issue,” said Tom Sullivan in an interview with reporter Katie Pelton last year. Sullivan’s son, Alex, was gunned down by Holmes on his 27th birthday.

“We should be able to know, you know, where he is.”

Early Thursday morning, the answer was finally revealed. Holmes is serving his life sentence in a federal prison in Allenwood, Pennsylvania, about a three-hour drive northwest of Philadelphia.

It’s been a long time coming for victims, who have pleaded for this information.

“That is the epitome of the boogeyman,” Sullivan told Pelton last year. “To people who are woken up at night, you know, in a cold sweat from having a nightmare … it would be
