Girlfriend of Vegas Gunman Arrives in US

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

The girlfriend of the man who opened fire on a music festival in Las Vegas killing 58 and wounding 500 arrived in Los Angeles Tuesday night, accompanied by Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of gunman Stephen Paddock, has become the focus of attention in the USA investigation into the Las Vegas mass shooting.

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.

Fifty-nine people were killed after Paddock fired a semi-automatic gun on to a crowd of 22,000 people from his 32nd-floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on Sunday night. He had a camera installed in his hotel room and had piled up 24 guns and thousands of rounds before opening fire from a hotel window at people attending the concert.

The official said U.S. authorities were eager to question Danley, who described herself on social media websites as a "casino professional", mother and grandmother, about whether Paddock encouraged her to leave the United States before he went on his rampage.

Employees from the Virgin River Casino location in Mesquite, Nevada told the Los Angeles Times that Paddock was known for berating his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, in public at the shop.

"We anticipate some information from her shortly", Lombardo said.

They said Danley is "a good person" who would've stopped Paddock had she been there. Danley's LinkedIn profile says that she is a "high-limit hostess" at a Vegas casino.

Danley is a citizen of Australia originally from the Philippines and still has family there, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said.

"She didn't even know that she was going to The Philippines until Steve said, 'Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to The Philippines, '" one of the unnamed women stated.

Reynaldo Bustos, her brother, told ABC News that he spoke to his sister following the shooting.

He had no criminal record and was not known to police, who have yet to state his motives for the mass shooting, the worst in USA modern history.

The 23-year-old said he didn't give Paddock another thought until he heard the news, adding he "didn't seem like he was the type of guy to do that".

Ms Danley has returned to the United States, where she has been based for the past two decades, following a brief trip to the Philippines, where she was reportedly born.

Paddock, 64 at the time of Sunday's shooting, grew up to become a successful real estate investor who owned a number of apartments and houses, according to his brother Eric Paddock.

Investigators have plenty of evidence but nothing yet that points to a motive in the shooting.

They lived together in Mr Paddock's property in Babbling Brook Court, a two-bedroom home worth $396,000 (£297,554).

Danley's boyfriend Stephen Paddock was the gunman.
