We’re still waiting for information to be released that would help explain why Stephen Paddock decided to open fire on a crowd in Las Vegas, killing nearly 60 people and injuring hundreds of others.
It’s been days since the shooting occurred, yet it doesn’t seem we’re any closer to knowing why he did it, whether or not he was motivated by politics or religion, as ISIS claims.
However, more and more pieces of the puzzle are coming to the surface thanks to the efforts of investigators looking into the incident.
The latest piece of information to be reported on is claiming that Paddock was spotted with a mystery woman just shortly before the attack.
Via The Daily Wire:
According to a report from ABC News, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was seen with a mystery woman in the days leading up to his deadly attack on a Las Vegas country music festival, where 58 people were killed and nearly 500 others were injured.
“Officials briefed on the investigation told ABC News that investigators believe Paddock was seen with another woman, who was not his girlfriend, in the days before Sunday night’s shooting,” says the ABC report.
As noted by the network, the woman was not Marilou Danley, a 62-year-old woman who has been identified by police officers as Paddock’s girlfriend.
Danley was located in the Philippines after the attack, apparently “sent” there by Paddock two weeks prior to the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. On Tuesday night, she landed in the states and spoke to the FBI for a reported five hours.
Danley has been labeled as a “person of interest” by Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo and maintains she’s innocent, completely unaware of the murderous plot.
The woman of interest has not yet been identified, but police officials are wanting to locate her and find out what she might know, if anything, about Paddock and his possible motivation for slaughtering so many innocent human beings.
Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend has given statements to the FBI, some of which paint a picture of Paddock having symptoms of mental health problems.
This wouldn’t be shocking given the course of action he took and the lack of evidence that would point toward a reason for his actions.
Let’s hope officials are able to locate this woman and that she can help provide some closure for the families of the victims.
