Vegas sheriff believes Paddock’s girlfriend may be hiding something


Little has been uncovered in the way of determining a motive for Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, and Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo believes Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, isn’t being straightforward with everything she knows.

It is not entirely uncommon for someone to have hundreds of guns, but in order to act in the decisively violent manner Paddock did, Lombardo believes someone who was intimate with him must have had at least an inkling that he was going to do something drastic.

Speaking to a local television station on Wednesday, Clarke County Sheriff Joe Lombardo described how cops were suspicious of Marilou Danley and her claims that she knew nothing about Paddock’s murderous plans to shoot up the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.

“There is a lot of people that have hundreds and hundreds of guns, but for this individual to do it at a certain point in time and to do it all with such robust action, you would think that Ms. Danley would have some information associated with that,” Lombardo told KLAS in a lengthy, two-hour interview.

“But currently we haven’t been able to pull that out of her, if it’s in her,” he said.

Danley — who was out of the country at the time of the Oct. 1 shooting — has told investigators that she was totally clueless about the attack and had nothing to do with it.

But Lombardo finds it hard to believe that she could have been left completely in the dark.

“It could have been prevented on many levels,” he said. “Marilou Danley, his brother, anybody that may have had some modicum of information that would have presented this individual’s state of mind, but apparently right now we don’t know that.”
