- Girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter arrives in the U.S. to aid investigations.
- Had no idea Paddock was planning a shooting spree.
- She loved Paddock and knew him as a kind and caring man.
Marilou Danley, 62 year old mother and grandmother and the girlfriend of Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas gunman who killed at least 50 and injured over 500
people in a Las Vegas concert has arrived in the U.S..
After being questioned for much of the day by FBI agents, Danley, 62, said she loved her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock, and knew him as a kind, caring and quiet man.
"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen."
Danley also indicated that she had no inclination that her boyfriend paddock was planning to attack concertgoers.
"It never occurred to me in any whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone," Danley, 62, said in the statement read by her attorney, Matthew Lombard, outside FBI headquarters in Los Angeles.
"I am a mother and grandmother and my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones," she said.
Danley has returned to the United States willingly and has vowed to cooperate with the Police in their investigations.
Meanwhile, investigators have continued to piece together Paddock's life to try to understand his person and the motive behind the gruesome act.
Neighbours described Paddock as friendly, but he wasn't close to them.
"He was a private guy. That's why you can't find out anything about him," his brother, Eric Paddock, said from his home in Florida. As for what triggered the attack, the brother said: "Something happened that drove him into the pit of hell."
