Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock 'sent his girlfriend away' Marilou Danley before massacre

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

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock encouraged his live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, to leave the country before his attack that left 58 people dead, her sisters told CNN affiliate Seven Network Australia.

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

"The people he loved, he took care of and as he was descending into hell, he wanted to try and take care of her", he said.

Police found another 19 firearms, explosives, and thousands of rounds of ammunition at Paddock's home in Mesquite, 82 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

At least 59 people have died and more than 515 were injured as the gunman sprayed bullets into the crowds from a hotel balcony.

It's been revealed Paddock placed cameras around his motel room so he could watch for police during his killing spree. She left the United States for Hong Kong on September 25. She was accompanied by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles, where Las Vegas police planned to question her, the source said.

Cops admitted they were not yet sure of the Vegas gunman's motives, with Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo telling reporters: "We have no idea what his belief system was - I can't get into the mind of a psychopath".

When asked if Ms Danley was a suspect the sheriff replied: 'Currently she is a person of interest'. "And we want to identify that source".

Paddock seemed unlike the troubled, angry young men who experts said have come to embody the mass-shooter profile in the United States. She was out of the country during the shooting, police said.

The claims come after Danley returned to the US from the Philippines on Wednesday on an order from police as the search for answers to America's deadliest mass shooting in modern history continues.

In an interview with NBC News, Danley's sisters, who live in Australia, said Paddock surprised Danley with "cheap tickets" to the Philippines weeks before the incident. Atlantis said in a statement this week that she has not worked there for several years.

"We are making arrangements to contact her upon her return", he said.

Police are not aware whether the devices were transmitting - the FBI is investigating their use - but the Clark County sheriff told reporters he thinks the shooter might have used them to watch for people approaching his room.

The evidence laid out by investigators so far shows Paddock meticulously planned the shooting.

Public records on Paddock point to an itinerant existence across the US West and Southeast, including stints as an apartment manager and aerospace industry worker.

He said the family did not plan to hold a funeral for his brother, who was not religious, saying it could attract unwanted attention.
