Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, has reportedly told investigators that he “would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, ‘Oh, my God,’” according to former FBI officials who were briefed on the matter. NBC News reported that investigators believe that Paddock suffered from mental illness or physical pain, but that deterioration of his mental health did not appear to be the catalyst behind a deadly shooting spree that killed 59 people and injured more than 500. State and federal officials did confirm that Paddock had been prescribed anti-anxiety medication Valium.
Danley, 62, a Philippines native with Australian citizenship, was seen in footage being removed from a flight to Manila out of Los Angeles Airport after FBI agents declared her a person of interest in the case. Danley’s sisters had said that Paddock had bought her the ticket to the Philippines, and that she had no idea about his plan to attack the music festival.
Paddock is believed to have investigated other possible targets for his attack in Boston and Chicago, where thousands, including former first daughter Malia obama, attended Lollapalooza in early August.
