Girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter returns to US, met by federal agents at LAX

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night and was met by federal agents at the airport.

Authorities had been trying to track down Paddock's live-in girlfriend since the attack happened and found out she had been visiting family in the Philippines. She is considered a person of interest in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history that left 58 people dead and more than 500 wounded.

Danley boarded a plane in Manila and landed at LAX Tuesday night. According to sources, the 62-year-old was met by FBI agents to be questioned about what she may know about the attack and get a possible motive.

Authorities also want to know why Paddock wired $100,000 to an account under Danley's name in the Philippines the week before the massacre. It's unclear if the money was for her, her family or some other purpose.
