Report: Vegas Gunman’s Girlfriend Says He Would Lie in Bed Moaning, Screaming
The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman, Marilou Danley, said that he would lie in bed and scream and moan, NBC News reported, citing investigators.
“She said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, ‘Oh my God,'” two former FBI officials briefed on the matter told NBC. Danley, one of them said, spoke about him having “mental health symptoms.”
However, no official has gone on the record to confirm the report.
The FBI has yet to identify a clear motive in the attack on Sunday, which left 58 people dead and hundreds more injured.
They do not believe that his mental health had deteriorated to the point that would have triggered him to carry out the violence.
Meanwhile, law enforcement is investigating six media devices left behind by Paddock, and they will be searching is web browsing history.
According to Reuters, at the casino in Reno, Nevada, where they met several years ago, Paddock was a “big fish” and Danley a petite hostess.
”They were adorable,“ Paddock’s younger brother, Eric Paddock, told reporters this week. ”He loved her. I mean he doted on her.”
The brother was not surprised, then, by news reports that wealthy retiree Stephen Paddock may have sent $100,000 to the Philippines to be collected by Danley.
Danley, 62, returned to the United States on Tuesday and was being interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Los Angeles. Authorities have called her a “person of interest.”
”Mary Lou (sic) is absolutely the closest person to Steve,” the brother told Reuters in a series of text messages elaborating on their relationship. “My fear is that he manipulated around her, and she’s not going to know any more than anyone else does.”
