Vegas shooter's girlfriend Marilou Danley arrives in Los Angeles

The girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter has returned to the United States, a law enforcement source told CNN.


Marilou Danley flew from the Philippines and landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday evening. She is being accompanied by the FBI in Los Angeles, where Las Vegas police plan to question her, the source said.
Authorities in the US, Philippines and Australia have been involved in the search for Danley, in the hope she might be able to shed some light on what led the 64-year-old to kill 58 people and injure hundreds more.
Maria Antoinette Mangrobang, the Philippine Bureau of Immigration spokeswoman, said Danley had left Manila for Los Angeles, where her flight landed around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday local time.
Mangrobang added Danley had arrived in the Philippines from Tokyo on September 25. There has been communication between authorities in the Philippines, the FBI and the US Department of Homeland Security, the spokeswoman said.
Money wired to Philippines
Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday his investigators were hoping to speak with the 62-year-old.
Speaking at a press conference, he said that law enforcement authorities are in communication with Danley and anticipate "some information here from her shortly."
Adding more intrigue to the case is the news, confirmed to CNN by a US law enforcement source, that Paddock recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines.
Photos from 2013 show Paddock visiting the Philippines. Officials aren't able to see yet the precise date of the transfer and the FBI is currently working with Philippine authorities over the matter, the source said.
In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, police had described Danley as a "traveling companion" of the shooter, but did not describe her as a suspect.
'Good and gentle person'
The search for Danley initially spanned several countries, with conflicting reports that she could have been in Japan or the Philippines at the time of the shooting.
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said her government was working with US authorities but told CNN affiliate Sky News on Monday that Australia had had no contact with Danley directly.
Danley lived with Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada, northeast of Las Vegas. It's unclear when the couple met.
Court records show in February 2015 Danley filed a joint petition for divorce with her now ex-husband, whose name she has kept.
At the time, Danley was living in Reno, on the border of Nevada and California, according to the court document. She once worked at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno, which said Danley left the company "several years ago."
Speaking to CNN affiliate KHBS, the daughters of Danley's ex-husband described their former stepmother as a "good and gentle person."
"I know she has to be devastated about what has happened," Dionne Waltrip said, adding that the family, which now lives in Arkansas, has been receiving death threats after her father was erroneously identified online as the shooter.
"This is a horrific event, and our hearts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this terrible act," Waltrip said.
"Our family doesn't know Stephen Paddock, and has no knowledge of Marilou's relationship with Mr. Paddock."

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
