Marilou Danley, 62, reportedly lived with Stephen Paddock at a home in Mesquite, Nevada. The few details that have trickled out from law enforcement and family members about Paddock's life offer little insight into why he allegedly opened fire Sunday night on the Route 91 Harvest festival. USA officials said American security agencies were examining the claim of responsibility.
Marilou Danley, the woman whose name was dragged in the shooting incident, initially described as of "Asian descent" was later found to be a Filipina.
Las Vegas shooter Stephen Craig Paddock's father was a notorious bank robber who tried to run down an FBI agent with his auto in Las Vegas in 1960 and was on the agency's most wanted list after escaping from a federal prison in Texas in 1968.
"He didn't let her talk", the employee said.
In a statement on Monday, California time, Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said the Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles was monitoring developments after the attack.
Bale out - Wales without Madrid man for final two qualifiers
Tom Lawrence insists Wales will not be fazed by the loss of talisman Gareth Bale for their final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers. The 28-year-old missed their La Liga game with Espanyol on Sunday but reported to the Wales camp the following morning.
Investigators are still trying to trace the 100,000 United States dollars (£75,000) Paddock transferred to the Philippines in the days before the shooting, and are also looking into a least a dozen reports over the past several weeks that said he had gambled more than 10,000 dollars per day, a USA official said.
"I anticipate he was looking for anybody coming to take him into custody", Mr Lombardo said. "We are going to let her contact us if and when she decides she wants to".
Paddock was found dead, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, when a police SWAT team burst into his room.
News reported Monday that Paddock had wired Danley $100,000. Gomez said. "Did she see him operating these weapons, training, working on these weapons?" The couple separated in 1979 before their divorce was finalized in 1980 in Los Angeles County. There was reason to believe that Paddock had a history of psychological problems, one official said.
The retired accountant quietly stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons while pursuing a passion for high-stakes gambling at Nevada casinos, where his game of choice was video poker, a relatively solitary pursuit, with no dealer and no humans to play against. Who is Stephen Paddock? Danley posted photos to Facebook from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino three years ago. She described Danley as a "wonderful" person who would never have been involved in such a plot.
