Las Vegas massacre probe turns to gunman's girlfriend ahead of Trump visit

Inside a Mandalay Bay Hotel suite similar to the one used by Paddock

Paddock, a retired account and now the deadliest mass murderer in USA history, claimed the lives of 59 people and left over 500 injured.

"It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone", Danley said in a statement read out to reporters by her lawyer outside the FBI's Los Angeles office. Ms. Danley learned about the trip when Paddock told her he had bought a ticket. But his family and his 62-year-old girlfriend Marilou Danley said there were no warning signs that he would commit such an atrocity.

Danley also indicated that she had no inclination that her boyfriend paddock was planning to attack concertgoers.

Marilou Danley, who returned to the United States late Tuesday from a family visit in the Philippines and is regarded by investigators as a "person of interest", said the carnage unleashed by Stephen Paddock while she was overseas caught her completely unaware.

Police have also given new detail about the timeline of the Paddock's shooting massacre. The agent, Jill Snyder, said officials had determined the devices were legal.

She described her sister as "a good person and gentle soul", and said she "seemed madly in love with Steve". In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life.

The FBI is going through Paddock's communications, financial records, associates and video surveillance to try to piece together the puzzle of his motive.

"Danley arrived in the Philippines last month, and then there was a wire transfer to her account for $100,000 from Stephen", NBI spokesman Nick Suarez told AFP.

She returned to the United States on Tuesday night from the Philippines and spoke to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Las Vegas police, according to her attorney, Matt Lombard.

Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 59 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas on 1 October, set up a number of cameras in and around his hotel suite, police said.

"This individual was premeditated", Lombardo said.

"She probably was even shocked than us because she was more closer to him than us", one sister said.

But law enforcement authorities were hoping to obtain some answers from the woman identified as Paddock's live-in companion, Marilou Danley, who Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo called a "person of interest" in the investigation.
