Las Vegas suspect sent Marilou Danley away to PH, sisters claim

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in his live-in girlfriend's home country of the Philippines in the week before he unleashed the worst mass shooting in modern US history, according to multiple senior law enforcement officials.

A voicemail recording for Danley's daughter from her first marriage directed reporters to a Los Angeles lawyer, who did not immediately comment.

The gunman shot 59 people dead and injured 500 more at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday. Paddock reportedly killed himself as officers closed in on the hotel room he had chosen to carry out the attack.

Authorities in the US, Philippines and Australia have been involved in the search for Danley, in the hope she might be able to shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Danley was in the Philippines at the time of the attack; she had arrived there from Hong Kong on September 25, said Philippines immigration spokeswoman Antonette Mangrobang.

She was expected to be questioned upon her arrival in Los Angeles, the New York Times reported.

"It was pre-planned, extensively, and I'm pretty sure that he evaluated everything that he did in his actions, which is troublesome", Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said.

Friends and neighbours have described Ms Danley as a warm and chatty person who has lived and travelled around the world. Paddock turned his attention to those outside his door and fired, wounding one of them.

Authorities initially thought Danley, 62, was in Las Vegas and released her driver's license photo in the hope the public could help find her.

According to the Brisbane Courier Mail, Danley is an Australian citizen.

No one knows why Paddock morphed from a retired accountant to the deadliest mass shooter in modern USA history.

Mendoza said Paddock would lay into the much smaller Danley when she asked about using his casino card, which had credits from gambling that could be used to pay for things inside the casino.

The closest Paddock ever appeared to have come to a brush with the law was a traffic infraction, authorities said.

After a mass shooting, or any shooting really, if the murderer happens to be a white dude, he usually gets the "oh he was always so nice and quiet, I can't believe he would do something like this" treatment.

Federal, state and local investigators have found no evidence that Paddock had even incidental contacts with foreign or domestic extremist groups, and reviews of his history showed no underlying pattern of criminal behavior or hate speech, the homeland security official said.

"I reiterate he has no knowledge of Mr. Paddock or any knowledge as to why Mr. Paddock would do such a disgusting terrible thing", his daughter said. Earlier reports said that Danley was expected to return to USA soil on Wednesday.
