"There's no political affiliation that we know of".

"She was sent away", the woman added.

"Danley has not been charged in the case and told her family she has a "clean conscience" following the Las Vegas attack, her brother said in an interview with ABC News in the Philippines".

Las Vegas police say she was in Asia at the time of the shooting but is expected to return to the USA this week where authorities are eager to find out what, if anything, she knew about Paddock's plans.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something terrible like this was going to happen", Marilou Danley, 62, said in a statement read by her lawyer outside Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Los Angeles.

"No one can put the puzzles together".

"Only Marilou can maybe help".

She added that she was "devastated" for those who were killed or injured in the shooting.

Newsweek has retracted its story that reviewed the public records of Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock.

She arrived in Manila on Sept. 15, flew to Hong Kong on Sept. 22 and returned in Manila on Sept. 25.

He said: "We have no idea".

- Police found 10 rifles inside Paddock " s hotel room, Las Vegas Police Department Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said on Monday.

"He didn't let her talk", the employee said.

According to law enforcement sources, Paddock has sent tens of thousands of dollars to someone in the Philippines in recent months.

Photos from 2013 show Paddock visiting the Philippines.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, police had described Danley as a "traveling companion" of the shooter, but did not describe her as a suspect.

Investigators looking into the Las Vegas shooting are turning to Marilou Danley, the shooter's 62-year old girlfriend, for a possible motive as to why the shooter would commit such an act.

The preliminary death toll, which officials said could rise, eclipsed last year's massacre of 49 people at an Orlando nightclub by a gunman who pledged allegiance to ISIS.

So far, police believe Paddock acted alone - which could make his motive more hard to determine.

When first responders got to the hotel room, Paddock shot through the door, striking one of the hotel's security guards in the leg. SWAT team members then used an explosive device to force the door open into the hotel room but found Paddock had committed suicide.

Given the firepower and the packed mass of people, it's easy to see how the casualty count was so high, even firing from an extreme range (by the standards of mass shootings.) This was the University of Texas tower attack on steroids, conducted out of nowhere, with meticulous planning and at great expense, from a person who doesn't seem to fit any normal profile of a mass shooter.

The official, who has been briefed regularly on the probe but spoke on condition of anonymity, said the working assumption of investigators was that the money was intended as a form of life insurance payment for Danley.

Earlier reports said that Danley was expected to return to USA soil on Wednesday.

It is claimed the shooter, with whom Ms Danley lived in Mesquite, often berated her in public. It's unclear when the couple met.

According to Dionne Waltrip, one of Geary's children, her father had no knowledge of Danley's relationship with Paddock.

Ms Danley has lived in Nevada since 2003, according to local media, and has worked in the casino business.

Paddock seemed unlike the troubled, angry young men who experts said have come to embody the mass-shooter profile in the United States.

The daughters of Danley's ex-husband described their former stepmother as a "good and gentle person", they told CNN affiliate KHBS.
