Danley was named a person of interest in the early aftermath of the shooting, but officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department soon said they had spoken to her and she was cleared.

The domestic terrorist behind the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas has been identified as Stephen Paddock.

Previously, this article contained information from that reporting.

Marilou Danley, the partner of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, says she was completely unaware of his plans to inflict death on a crowd of country music festival-goers. She was sent away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning.

The Philippines' National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) said the FBI, its USA counterpart, had sought help in finding Danley, 62. She was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting, according to media reports.

Danley's sisters said Paddock bought her "a cheap ticket" to the Philippines, her home country.

Lombardo said he is "absolutely" confident authorities will find out what set off Paddock, a high-stakes gambler and retired accountant.

A native of the Philippines, Danley returned from her homeland Tuesday night to face questioning from federal investigators. "I have not made a statement until now because I have been cooperating with the authorities, and I voluntarily flew back to America because I know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Las Vegas Police Department wanted to talk to me and I wanted to talk to them".

The family said Marilou was a "wonderful" person and described her as kind and giving, adding that they hadn't heard from her.

Knights, 23, who lives near Brisbane in Queensland, told Australia's Channel 9 that he spent time in Las Vegas with Paddock and Danley a few months ago.

In Paddock's hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, Lombardo says there were cameras inside and outside the room, including one Paddock placed in a food service cart.

What drove Paddock to shed so much blood will be at the top of many people's lists of questions.

Eric Paddock said, "I mean this is an asteroid that fell out of the sky".

The company that owns the Mandalay Bay resort is also donating US$3 million to help the victims and their families.
