Why Did Paddock Wire $100K to Philippines?

Why Did Paddock Wire $100K to Philippines?

Before Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel into a crowd of some 22,000 concertgoers in Las Vegas Sunday night, the man now responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in United States history grew up in Southern California and attended high school in Sun Valley. The Australian national reportedly left the country before Paddock left for Las Vegas, where he is responsible for the deaths of 59 people and wounding more than 500 others.

It's been revealed Paddock placed cameras around his motel room so he could watch for police during his killing spree.

Ms Danley, who is considered a person of interest in the shooting investigation, was escorted through Los Angeles International Airport by FBI agents in a wheelchair on Wednesday night after flying in from the Philippines. She left the United States for Hong Kong on September 25. "She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", one of Danley's sisters told 7 News.

They also believe that Danley knew nothing of Paddock's plan, and that she was sent away so she can not interfere with his plan.

Friends and neighbours have described Ms Danley as a warm and chatty person who has lived and travelled around the world. "And we want to identify that source".

Danley, 62, who travels on an Australian passport, arrived from Manila, said Maria Antoinette Mangrobang, the Philippine Bureau of Immigration spokeswoman.

Ms Danley is now in USA federal agents' custody, and investigators will want to know if she can shed any light on why Paddock carried out the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history. Investigators are still piecing together the motives for the shooting that killed at least 58 people and are now focused on one thing: what do we know about Marilou Danley?

The terrorist group has a strong presence in the Philippines, and Paddock wired $100,000 to Ms Danley's account in that country before embarking on his rampage.

Two Nevada gun shops have confirmed that they sold firearms to Paddock in the past year and said he passed all required background checks.

"Maybe if Marilou was there this maybe didn't happen because she won't let it happen".

Police are not aware whether the devices were transmitting - the FBI is investigating their use - but the Clark County sheriff told reporters he thinks the shooter might have used them to watch for people approaching his room.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters that he is "absolutely" confident detectives will be able to determine his motive. The investigation agency is ascertaining whether the woman had prior knowledge of Stephen Paddock's nefarious plan. Earlier reports said that Danley was expected to return to US soil on Wednesday.

Lombardo said investigators knew a gun dealer had come forward to say that he had sold weapons to the suspect, but it was not clear if he was referring to Sullivan.
