Recent court documents have been unleashed revealing the girlfriend of the Las Vegas shooter having classified information about Stephen Paddock.
Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend told authorities they would probably find her fingerprints on bullets due to the fact she would help Paddock load ammunition magazines. The unsealed reports made on Friday leaked new details into the ongoing investigation of Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 innocent people in the Mandalay Bay massacre on October 1, 2017.
Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, 63 years old, was not arrested when returning to the US from her trip to the Philippines just days after the shooting. According to an FBI agent, Ms. Danley cooperated with the investigators. The documents stated that Danley “spontaneously” uttered outloud that her fingerprints might be discovered on the ammunition during the time she was providing a DNA sample to the authorities.
On Oct. 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock unloaded hundreds of rounds of ammunition into a country music festival below the Las Vegas hotel room he was in.
Hundreds were injured, and 58 people died, making it one of the most deadly shootings in U.S. history. However, little to no information has been released about what actually happened and why Paddock slaughtered so many innocent people.
Four months later, documents show that his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, told authorities they would likely find fingerprints on Paddock’s bullets because she often assisted him in loading the magazines, according to court documents released Friday.
On Oct. 3, no evidence suggested Danley had any “criminal involvement,” and she was in the Philippines visiting her family on the night of the attack.
However, it was also recently discovered that an hour before Las Vegas police released Paddock’s name, Danley deleted her Facebook account.
The shooting began at 10:08 p.m. Danley deleted her account at 2:46 a.m., and then Paddock’s name was released to the public at 3:30 a.m. According to an FBI agent’s affidavit, Danley was “adamant that she had no prior inclination of Paddock’s intentions to conduct the attack.”
Information was also released on Friday showing that Paddock was communicating through email about buying rifles and bump stocks months before the attack occurred. He was told to try an AR-style rife before purchasing one, and he said that he was interested in trying out several different scopes and types of ammunition.
