Who was Stephen Paddock? Girlfriend describes gunman as 'kind,' 'quiet man'

Multiple People Shot on Las Vegas Strip

Marilou Danley, the partner of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, says she was completely unaware of his plans to inflict death on a crowd of country music festival-goers.

"I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man", Danley said Wednesday in a statement through her lawyer, Matthew Lombard.

Investigators were examining a $100,000 wire transfer Paddock sent to an account in the Philippines that "appears to have been intended" for Danley, a senior USA homeland security official told Reuters on Tuesday.

Page one of today's paper tells the story: At least 59 people were killed and more than 500 were injured in the most serious mass shooting in USA history.

Paddock had stockpiled a total of 42 firearms in his 32nd floor hotel room and at his home, 130 km away from the site of the massacre, officials said. In fact, they said the only reason she was in the Philippines was because Paddock told her he had found a cheap ticket.

Baristas told the paper they would wince when Paddock came in with Marilou Danley, because he regularly belittled and berated her in front of customers and staff.

People reports that 23 weapons were discovered in his hotel room, most of which were military-style rifles.

"My 90-year-old mother's son is the biggest mass-murderer in the history of the United States now, and she doesn't understand why", Eric Paddock said.

The Philippines' National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said the FBI, its U.S. counterpart, had sought help in finding Danley, 62.

"Marilou Danley is no longer being sought out as a person of interest", the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) said.

Danley addressed claims Paddock had given her money so she would be out of the country during the shooting.

"I can tell you I'm very troubled by it", he said. "She was away so that she will not be there to interfere with what he's planning". "While there, he wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family", she said.

Danley is cooperating with authorities in the investigation, Lombard said. Police said they believed he had used 10 suitcases to smuggle the weapons up to the room.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive in Las Vegas Wednesday to meet with officials, first responders and some victims.
