Unveiled: Marilou Danley, 62-year-old girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter

Father of Las Vegas shooter started life of crime in Chicago

The girlfriend of the man who opened fire on concertgoers in Las Vegas, killing dozens and wounding hundreds more, arrived in Los Angeles Tuesday night, law enforcement sources said.

The other sister said Danley, who arrived back in the United States from the Philippines on Tuesday, "didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines, until Steve said, 'Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines'".

At the casino in Reno, Nevada, where they met several years ago, Stephen Paddock was a "big fish" and Marilou Danley a petite hostess.

The gunman shot 59 people dead and injured 500 more at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Whatever his motive, authorities said he planned the murderous attack in great detail, not only stockpiling almost two dozen guns in his hotel room but setting up cameras in the peephole and on a service cart outside his door, apparently to watch for police coming for him.

After the attack, authorities in the United States, the Philippines and Australia joined efforts to search for Danley, hoping she might shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. NBC says that Danley traveled to the Philippines on September 25 via Hong Kong.

"It happened a lot", Esperanza Mendoza, the supervisor of the Starbucks inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite, Nevada, told the Los Angeles Times.

They said Danley is "a good person" who would've stopped Paddock had she been there. Investigators named Danley as a "person of interest" in the investigation.

She was located in Japan on Tuesday (NZ time) a day after Paddock filled his 32nd floor suite of the Mandalay Bay casino with 19 high-powered guns, including assault rifles with scopes, and fired on the crowd below. "We have discovered he was utilizing some of her identification".

Paddock was apparently known for acting like an asshole to his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, while they waited in line for their drinks.

Authorities in the USA, the Philippines and Australia were involved in the search for Danley, who travels on an Australian passport, CNN reported.

Paddock had recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines, a U.S. law enforcement source confirmed to CNN.

The latter attack was previously the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

Information from Marilou, who lived with Paddock for several years, could be the breakthrough authorities need.

So far, police believe Paddock acted alone - which could make the motive harder to determine.

Investigators have been piecing together Paddock's life.

At this point, Paddock's motive and aims remain a mystery to investigators.

That's because Paddock had a nasty habit of berating Danley in public.

He said the family did not plan to hold a funeral for his brother, who was not religious, saying it could attract unwanted attention.
