The girlfriend of alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock returned to the United States from the Philippines late Tuesday night as Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents met with her at the airport.
Marilou Danley, 62, was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting — Paddock reportedly wired $100,000 to the Philippines the week before he went on the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history although it is not clear whom the money went to, NBC News reported.
Late on Tuesday night, The New York Times reported that Danley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport from Manila and was met by federal authorities:
She is considered a “person of interest” in the investigation of the attack, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said Tuesday afternoon.
Ms. Danley has ties to the Philippines, and several news reports said she was born there.
The report by the Times also confirmed the link between Danley and her former husband Geary Danley — a hardcore leftist.
“After meeting Mr. Danley, she moved to Memphis,” The Times noted. “The couple wed in 1990 and their marriage lasted 25 years.”
Shortly after the shooting in Las Vegas started, Facebook removed Marilou Danley’s supposed account, which was linked to Geary Danley’s account.
