Las Vegas gunman's partner claims 'no knowledge' of attack

Las Vegas gunman's partner claims 'no knowledge' of attack

Paddock, 64, killed at least 58 people and injured 527 others Sunday night in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

The girlfriend of Stephen Paddock, the man who massacred almost 60 people attending a music festival in Las Vegas, has returned to the United States from the Philippines, according to media reports.

Lombardo declined to comment on an NBC news report that 64-year-old Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines some time in the week before the attack.

Paddock killed himself, according to Las Vegas Police.

When law-enforcement officers managed to find Paddock in the hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, he was already dead in what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police have said they found 23 guns in Paddock's room at the hotel.

Police confirmed this evening that they found several pounds of ammonium nitrate - a material used to make explosives - inside the suspect's auto.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of Clark County said detectives are in contact with Marilou Danley, who was travelling in the Philippines at the time of the massacre and remains there.


"I want to emphasize we believe Paddock is exclusively responsible for this heinous act", Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Asst.

It is not known if the money was for her or another goal, but authorities are hoping she will fill in some blanks when she returns home to the United States, which is reportedly expected on Wednesday.

She added: "I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring quite man I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him".

Police said they were still working to establish the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. history.

Lombardo said the investigation is proceeding cautiously in case criminal charges are warranted against someone else. Lombardo said that the cameras were not in record mode during Sunday's incident. It was not immediately clear what, if any, additional plans Paddock may have had for if he were able to leave the scene before the police arrived.

US President Donald Trump is due to visit Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Twelve rifles were fitted with so-called bump stocks, allowing them to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons.

The sheriff also said there was evidence Paddock planned to survive his killing spree and escape but he did not specify what the evidence was.
