Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend Marilou Danley has been detained and the house they shared raided by police following the attack that left 50 dead and 200 more injured.She is believed to be an Australian citizen of Indonesian heritage and was described by police as his room mate or companion.
She lived on the Gold Coast in Queensland for more than a decade with her former husband, an Australian man, who has since passed away. She moved to the United States 20 years ago.
Adding: ‘He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy.
‘He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack’.
Early on Monday morning police in Las Vegas issued a statement to say that Danley was no longer a person of interest in the investigation.
Paddock was confirmed dead early in the investigation, leaving police in search of 62-year-old Marilou.
She and the shooter are said to be roommates or companions, though the precise nature of their relationship has not been made clear.
