Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock made a $100,000 wire transfer to an account in the Philippines in the days before the deadly shooting, NBC, CNN and other news outlets are reporting, citing unnamed law enforcement sources.
Paddock’s live-in girlfriend, Marilou Danley, reportedly has family in the Philippines and was overseas during his shooting spree. Officials said Danley had traveled to the Philippines on Sept. 15, left Sept. 22, then returned to the Philippines from Hong Kong on Sept. 25, The Associated Press reported. She returned to the U.S. late Tuesday for questioning.
Paddock also was quite wealthy; he earned millions through real estate deals and spent most of his time gambling, his brother said. He had multiple homes, and he and Danley lived in at least three retirement communities. He had no history of mental illness.
Paddock reportedly used some of Danley’s identification when he checked into Mandalay Bay.
