Las Vegas shooting: Federal Bureau of Investigation begins questioning gunman's girlfriend

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock's father was bank robber on the FBI's Most Wanted list

Marilou Danley, who is believed to have moved in with the Las Vegas mass murderer in his Mesquite, Nev., home earlier this year, was expected to return to the USA today.

A law enforcement official says she arrived on a flight from Manila to Los Angeles where Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were waiting for her late Tuesday night.

Paddock killed himself after mowing down the concert-goers.

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

However, it was revealed on Tuesday that Paddock wired $100,000 to a bank account in the Philippines, Danley's home country, a week before carrying out the attack.

"We are in conversations with her", he told an afternoon news briefing. Paddock ended the rampage by killing himself.

However, workers at the local Starbucks in Mr Paddock's hometown of Mesquite, Nevada, painted a different picture of his relationship, telling the Los Angeles Times Paddock would often berate Ms Danley in public.

But as CrimeOnline previously reported, a manager at a Starbucks who frequently saw the couple together said that Paddock was verbally abusive to his girlfriend.

Reports say she moved to the USA 20 years ago, marrying Geary Danley from Arkansas. When officers entered the hotel room, they found Paddock dead.

Lombardo said he is "absolutely" confident authorities will find out what set off Paddock, a high-stakes gambler and retired accountant.

Las Vegas Shooting: Advice For People Looking For Answers

Searches of the home of Stephen Paddock, inset, are yet to uncover a motive for his shooting into a crowd in Las Vegas.

Paddock had an arsenal of weapons in his hotel suite, including bump-fire stocks - legal devices that enable a shooter to fire bullets rapidly, similar to an automatic rifle.

"The genetics load the gun, personality and psychology aim it, and experiences pull the trigger, typically", Clemente said.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo named the 62-year-old as a "person of interest" shortly after the mass shooting Sunday night.

His brother, Eric Paddock, said he was at a loss to explain the massacre.

U.S. officials have reacted cautiously to a claim by the Islamic State jihadist group that the shooter had carried out Sunday night's massacre on its behalf. Authorities have not yet determined the exact date or objective of the wire transfer or who the recipient was.

Her sisters in Australia have since told 7 News they believed he "sent her away" to the Philippines prior to the shooting.

Police also confirmed that photos widely published online showing the gunman's body, his hands in gloves, lying on the floor beside two firearms and spent shell casings, were authentic crime-scene images obtained by media outlets.

The guns were bought in Nevada, Utah, California and Texas, said Jill Snyder, special agent in charge of ATF field division in San Francisco.

Investigators also found explosives in his home and ammonium nitrate (used as a bomb ingredient) in his vehicle.
