Here’s a look at what we learned Friday about Paddock’s connection to Reno:
At the time of the incident Paddock was 64 years old. He owned residences in Mesquite and Reno and lived with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Paddock had limited law enforcement contact and no criminal history.
He worked alone when he decided to shoot at a crowd of concert goers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival held at the Las Vegas Village concert along South Las Vegas Boulevard.
Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, stayed with him in Las Vegas for a short time in early September. But during the time of the shooting, she was in the Philippines.
Danley had been described as a person of interest in the investigation but not a suspect. Shewas questioned shortly after the shooting by the FBI when she arrived in Los Angeles from overseas.
A document filed Oct. 6 and unsealed Jan. 12 by a federal judge in Las Vegas said the FBI considered Danley “the most likely person who aided or abetted Stephen Paddock.”
The sheriff said on Friday that no charges are expected against Danley.
While Danley was in the Philippines, Paddock transferred$10,000just days before the shooting.
FBI warrant documents also showed that Danley told investigators that they would find her fingerprints on bullets used during the attack because she would sometimes help Paddock load high volume ammunition magazines. after a mass shooting at a country music festival nearby on October 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
