UPDATE 3:15 p.m (AP) — An attorney for the Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend says she had no knowledge of any plans by him to commit a massacre.
Marilou Danley’s lawyer said Wednesday she plans to cooperate fully with the investigation of her boyfriend Stephen Paddock.
Defense attorney Matthew Lombard spoke in Los Angeles after Danley met with FBI agents to discuss Sunday’s carnage on the Las Vegas strip.
She returned to the U.S. Tuesday night from the Philippines, where she was visiting family.
While she was there, Paddock, a high-stakes gambler, sent her $100,000.
Lombard says she was not expecting the money and worried that he was breaking up with her.
LAS VEGAS (AP) The investigation of a gunman who killed 59 people at a Las Vegas concert now shifts to his girlfriend, who has returned to the United States from the Philippines.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says investigators are hoping to get some insight from Marilou Danley on why her boyfriend Stephen Paddock opened fire on a concert crowd from a high-rise hotel room.
Danley had been out of the country for weeks before the shooting. A law enforcement official says she arrived on a flight from Manila to Los Angeles where FBI agents were waiting for her late Tuesday night.
The official wasn’t authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump is set to arrive in Las Vegas to meet with public officials, first responders and some of the 527 people injured in the attack.
