The girlfriend of Stephen Paddock, Marilou Danley, is said to have been in her home country of the Philippines at the time of the horrific mass shooting Sunday night but a viral video immediately made people wonder if Danley was the one who warned concert goers that they “were going to die.”
“There was a lady who pushed her way forward in the concert venue into the first row and she started messing with another lady and told us that we were all going to die tonight,” a woman told KSNV News 3 in Las Vegas. “It was about 45 minutes before the shots were actually fired. But then she was escorted out by security.”
According to the NY Post on the day of the shooting, “authorities said Danley was sitting in Paddock’s car before the shooting” and that she was “later cleared of involvement.” That report was debunked by dozens of other reports on Danley, however, all of which said she was in the Philippines.
The latest regarding Danley’s possible knowledge of Paddock’s intentions involve Paddock having wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines in Danley’s name.
Sherriff Joe Lombardo said that authorities would try to speak with Danley when she got back to the United States, according to USA Today.
