The girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, who killed 59 people and left 527 injured in a mass shooting attack on Sunday, has been revealed as Marilou Danley, 62.
Marilou was initially arrested after she was called a person of interest in the attack, but after Police interviewed her she was declared completely innocent in the attack, which is the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
According to Authorities, Paddock used Danley’s slot card to gamble in the Las Vegas hotel, where he stayed for three days prior to Sunday’s shooting.His girlfriend Danley is believed to be an Australian citizen and previously lived on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, for more than a decade with her former husband, an Australian man, who has since passed away.
The Herald Sun reported that she moved to the United States 20 years ago, while one of her former neighbors said she is originally from the Philippines.
Her already deleted facebook page identified her as a ‘proud mom and grandma who lives life to the fullest.’ She also described herself on her LinkedIn page as a ‘gambling and casino professional’ living in Reno, Nevada.
Records show that Danley and Paddock lived together in a three-year-old, two-bedroom home on Babbling Brook Court in the tiny desert community of Mesquite, which is 80 miles north east of Las Vegas near the Arizona state border.
