Girlfriend of Vegas Shooter Arrives at Los Angeles Airport
Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock—the suspect in the deadliest mass shooting—was spotted arriving at the Los Angeles Airport in a wheelchair.
Danley, 62, was rushed through Customs to be questioned by officers about what she knew—if anything—about Paddock’s plans.

Danley flew from the Philippines, her home country, to Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 3. There, she was met by FBI agents, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
She wasn’t placed under arrest, according to footage that was captured by NBC News.
Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo previously called her a “person of interest” in the attack, and he added that “we anticipate some information from her shortly,” according to the Review-Journal.
A police official in Manila, the Philippine capital, and a law enforcement official in the United States, both speaking on condition of anonymity, said FBI agents were meeting Danley on arrival, Reuters reported.
The U.S. official said Danley was not under arrest but that the FBI hoped she would consent to be interviewed voluntarily.
Danley had assured her family she has a “clean conscience” following Sunday night’s rampage, her brother told ABC News in the Philippines.
“I called her up immediately and she said, ‘Relax, we shouldn’t worry about it. I’ll fix it. Do not panic. I have a clean conscience,’” Reynaldo Bustos told ABC in Manila.
