Sister of Las Vegas mass shooter's girlfriend says 'she was sent away'

Friday, 06 Oct, 2017

"He sent her away so that he can plan what he is planning without interruptions", the sister said. Fifty-eight people were killed and more than 500 were injured before Paddock took his own life as police closed in.

"Asked if investigators had determined why Paddock carried out the attack, he said, "We are not there yet".

"Firing from an elevated position is always what you want to do, so I would not be surprised if we have some video of him actually standing in that venue looking up at Mandalay Bay and trying to figure out which room is going to give him the best advantage".

Ivetta Saldana, who was attending the festival, told The Las Vegas Review-Journal she hid in a sewer after the shooting began.

It's unclear if the money was for her, her family or some other goal.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying Paddock was a soldier for the terror group who converted to Islam a few months ago. "I didn't even know what they were until this week".

A USA official familiar with the investigation said there was no evidence that Paddock had contacts with any extremist groups, or that he might have sought out militant groups online that could have incited him to carry out a mass shooting.

McCabe told CNN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was going through Paddock's communications, financial records, associates and video surveillance - anything to try to piece together the puzzle of his motive. "Because Steve is not here to talk anymore". Investigators are still piecing together the motives for the shooting that killed at least 58 people and are now focused on one thing: what do we know about Marilou Danley?

She arrived in Manila on Sept. 15, flew to Hong Kong on Sept. 22, returned to Manila on Sept. 25 and was there until she flew to Los Angeles on Tuesday night, according to a Philippine immigration official.

Her other sister added: "She is a good person and a gentle soul ... a mother, grandmother, a sister, a friend".

Mr Paddock then wired than $100,000 to the Philippines, a law enforcement official said.

Police believe Paddock acted alone when he sprayed gunfire on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, police described Danley as a "traveling companion" of the shooter. He keep to himself. "You've got to make the assumption he had to have some help at some point". "That's it", one sister said.

"We will look at every one of those lanes, pull every possible thread", he said. "But he cheated. He cheated".

Paddock's violent transformation has mystified everyone - his brother, investigators and the families he victimized.

Danley lived with Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada, northeast of Las Vegas.

In February 2015, Danley filed a joint petition for divorce with her now ex-husband, whose surname she has kept, court records show.

The wife of Stephen Paddock, a time desired by the forces of the order, was located "abroad", he said.

One of Danley's former neighbors was shocked. The 62-year-old was allegedly sent to stay with her family by the shooter shortly before the massacre. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight.
