Authorities shift focus to questioning girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter

Paddock is accused of opening fire from a room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino onto a country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring 527 people.

The family of Geary Danley, the man who amateur, online detectives falsely labeled the Las Vegas shooter, made a statement Monday after they started getting death threats.

Investigators were examining a $100,000 wire transfer Paddock sent to an account in the Philippines that "appears to have been intended" for Danley, a senior USA homeland security official told Reuters on Tuesday.

Lombardo mentioned cameras that Paddock had rigged inside and outside his hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino - a tactic seen by investigators as a means to monitor and fend off law-enforcement officers in the hotel hallway.

Lombardo said investigators had discovered several pounds of an explosive called tannerite in the Mesquite home, as well as ammonia nitrate, a type of fertilizer, in the gunman's vehicle.

On Tuesday night, Danley arrived back in the U.S.at LAX. We wanted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Las Vegas Police Department to have the first opportunity to talk to my client, Marilou Danley, about everything that she knew about Stephen.

Ms Danley said she flew back to the USA voluntarily and will cooperate fully with the investigation into the shooting.

Within hours, police had talked to the killer's brother, who said he had seen or heard no indication Paddock was planning a massacre. While there he wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family.

Lombardo says police are in contact with a woman named Marilou Danley in the Philipines.

Law enforcement authorities were hoping to obtain some answers from Danley.
