Report: Shooter Sent Girlfriend To Philippines

One sister speculated in an interview with NBC’s Australian partner, Channel 7, that Marilou was sent to the Philippines to keep her from interfering with Paddock’s plans for a massacre. Danley was met by federal agents last night at LAX. Paddock killed himself inside his Mandalay Bay hotel suite before police breeched the room Sunday.
