Las Vegas Shooter's Father Was a Bank Robber Wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Marilou Danley, an Australian woman initially sought in relation to the Las Vegas shooting.

On Sept. 28, the 64-year-old high-stakes gambler and real estate investor checked into Mandalay Bay and specifically requested an upper-floor room with a view of the Route 91 Harvest music festival, according to a person who has seen hotel records turned over to investigators.

More than 500 people were injured in the attacks.

Paddock had 23 guns inside the suite, as well as hammers, LVMPD Assistant Sheriff Todd Fasulo said. "In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life".

FBI agents investigating the Las Vegas mass shooting met Ms Danley when she arrived back in America on Wednesday afternoon (AEST).

Danley said she was grateful but "worried" that the unexpected trip home and the money "was a way of breaking up with me". She then moved to the United States in 1989 to work as a hostess in casinos.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Wednesday just after 9 a.m. local time that Danley would be questioned in the next half hour at the FBI's Los Angeles field office.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying Paddock was a soldier for the terror group who converted to Islam a few months ago. She was sent away. "He never cared about any of that stuff", his brother, Eric Paddock, said outside his Florida home.

Rabadi also said such tools are often used by sportsmen who want to modify their weapons for activities like target practice.

"This one is somewhat different than numerous ones we've dealt with in the past, because we don't have any immediately accessible thumbprints that would indicate the shooter's ideology or motivation, or really what compelled him to get there", McCabe said. "She probably was even (more) shocked than us because she is more closer to him than us", her sister said.

"No one can put the puzzles together", she said. "Only Marilou can maybe help out".

With authorities now face-to-face with the Las Vegas mass shooter's girlfriend, her sister is speaking out about her leaving the the weeks before the massacre.

An Australian citizen of Filipino heritage, Danley said she flew back to the United States voluntarily "because I know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Las Vegas Police Department wanted to talk to me, and I wanted to talk to them". "We've spoken to him and we do not believe that it is involved".

Nearly three days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, investigators appear no closer to answering the question: Why?

"She's a good person, a gentle soul, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend", the sister said, adding that Danley was having trouble coping with the tragedy because "she's a very weak person".

Marilou Danley, 62, landed at Los Angeles International Airport on a flight from the Philippines and was escorted by FBI agents, multiple law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation confirmed to NBC News.

The previous weekend, Paddock had rented a high-rise condo in a building that overlooked the Life is lovely alternative music festival featuring Chance the Rapper, Muse, Lorde and Blink-182, said Lombardo, who offered no other details about what led Paddock there.
