The woman described as the girlfriend of the Las Vegas mass shooter has been detained, and is no longer a person of interest, according to news reports.
Marilou Danley, 62, an Australian of Asian heritage, was described as the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock’s roommate.
Police with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department sought help from the public early Monday morning, tweeting a photo of Danley, and urging the public, “If seen please call 911!”
The shootings at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas left more than 50 dead and more than 400 wounded, making it the deadliest mass shooting in modern history.
“We have located (Danley) out of the country,” Las Vegas sheriff Joseph Lombardo told a press conference this morning. “She was not with (Paddock) when he checked in to the Mandalay Bay Resort hotel. We believe her at this time not to be involved.”
Police said Paddock used Danley’s ID to check in to the hotel.
Danley’s LinkedIn profile said she was a “gambling and casino professional” who lived in Reno, Nevada. Between 2010 and 2013 she worked as a “hostess” for the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
