Killer's brother seeks to raise $1M for Las Vegas shooting victims

Paddock wired the money to the Phlippines the home country of his girlfriend Marilou Danley

A LinkedIn page connected to Danley that had also been taken down said she worked as a "gambling and casino professional" in Reno from 2010 to 2013, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday night to answer serious questions regarding what she knew about Stephen Paddock's deadly massacre.

"She was sent away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he's planning", one of Danley's sisters told Seven News from their home in Australia's Gold Coast region. They said she wasn't connected to the killings in any way, and that Danley was "sent away" so that "he can plan what he is planning without interruptions". She said she had no idea he was planning a massacre on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday that left 58 people dead and almost 500 injured.

"In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister's life", she adds, saying that Danley was "really in love with Steve". NBC News reported that Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines in the week before the mass shooting.

Police say Paddock killed himself following a brief confrontation with officers. The 62-year-old was a live-in girlfriend of Paddock.

"No one can put the puzzles together, no one except Marilou", one of the sister's told Channel 7.

He added in a statement: "The Life is Beautiful Festival family is devastated by the horrific events that took place on October 1 in our hometown of Las Vegas. A mother, a grandmother, a sister, a friend", said one sister.

Lombardo said Wednesday that Paddock had 1,600 rounds of ammunition and several containers of an explosive commonly used in target shooting that totaled 50 pounds (23 kilograms) in his auto. Danley left her husband, Geary Danley, in 2013 and moved in with Paddock.

Investigators reached Marilou Danley early Monday but do not believe she was involved in the shooting at this time.

After travelling from the Philippines to Los Angeles to assist in FBI investigations, Danley addressed the incident through her attorney Matthew Lombard.

Marilou Danley broke her silence on Thursday.
