Globetrotting Marilou Danley is back in the U.S., accompanied by the FBI. Let’s hope the FBI does a better job with her than it did with the Hillary Clinton email scandal, which should have landed Crooked Hillary in jail.
But I digress.
Danley’s sisters live in Australia. They’ve been talking to the press. Pictures of Stephen Paddock in the Philippines in 2013 have also been unearthed.
There are a couple of things about Paddock I haven’t seen anywhere. First, did he leave a will? Second, did he have any children? Neither of these things has surfaced yet. About all we know for sure is that he had a Flip girlfriend, liked gambling, and had a fair number of firearms.
We also have just learned that he had been prescribed Valium by a Jewish doctor.
Excerpt from CNN
Manila, Philippines (CNN)Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock encouraged his girlfriend Marilou Danley to leave the country before his attack that left 58 people dead, her sisters told CNN affiliate in Australia 7 News.
The sisters, who spoke to 7 News exclusively, did not want to be identified by name and requested their faces be blurred.
“I know that she don’t know anything as well like us. She was sent away. She was away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he’s planning,” one of Danley’s sisters told 7 News from their home in Australia’s Gold Coast region.
“In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister’s life,” she said, adding her sister was “really in love with Steve.”
Authorities in the US, Philippines and Australia have been involved in the search for Danley, in the hope she might be able to shed some light on the motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
The other sister said Danley, who arrived back in the US from the Philippines on Tuesday, “didn’t even know that she was going to the Philippines, until Steve said, ‘Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines.'”
She added Danley was likely “even (more) shocked than us” by his actions.
“No one can put the puzzles together, no one, except Marilou, because Steve is not here to talk anymore. Only Marilou can maybe help,” the sister said.
“If Marilou was there, this maybe as well didn’t happen because she won’t let it happen.”
Danley landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday evening, a law enforcement source told CNN. She is being accompanied by the FBI in Los Angeles, where Las Vegas police plan to question her, the source said.
Maria Antoinette Mangrobang, the Philippine Bureau of Immigration spokeswoman, said Danley, who travels on an Australian passport, had left Manila for Los Angeles, where her flight landed around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday local time.
Mangrobang added Danley had arrived in the Philippines from Tokyo on September 15. There has been communication between authorities in the Philippines, the FBI and the US Department of Homeland Security, the spokeswoman said.
Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday his investigators were hoping to speak with the 62-year-old woman.
Speaking at a press conference, he said law enforcement authorities are in communication with Danley and anticipate “some information here from her shortly.”
Adding more intrigue to the case is the news, confirmed to CNN by a US law enforcement source, that Paddock recently wired $100,000 to the Philippines.
Photos from 2013 show Paddock visiting the Philippines. Officials aren’t able to see yet the precise date of the transfer and the FBI is currently working with Philippine authorities over the matter, the source said.
In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, police had described Danley as a “traveling companion” of the shooter, but did not describe her as a suspect.
Paddock traveled to the Philippines in 2013, where these photos were taken.
In one of the more significant developments in the case against Paddock, it’s been revealed that in June he was prescribed Valium.
Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication four months before shooting 58 people dead and wounding more than 500.
Paddock was prescribed 50 10 milligram diazepam tablets – also known as Valium – on June 21 by Vegas doctor Steven Winkler, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Diazepam is a sedative-hypnotic drug that can trigger aggressive behavior in people with underlying behavioral problems, multiple studies have shown.
It is not known why Paddock was prescribed the drug, or whether he had any behavioral issues.
Multiple people who knew him, including his own brother Eric, say he displayed no outward signs of aggression and did not appear as the kind of person who would carry out a mass shooting.
Staff at Dr Winkler’s office would not confirm to the Review-Journal if Paddock had been a patient, and said the doctor would not be answering questions.
One study conducted in Finland, and another in Australia and New Zealand, linked the use of benzodiazepines – the class of drugs to which diazepam belongs – to increased instances of aggressive behavior.
If, and I emphasize if, Paddock is the patsy in a conspiracy, then he was certainly set up nicely. Between the guns and the drugs, there’s the girlfriend who may have been overseas being rehearsed to tell a story that will make it look even more convincing that Paddock was the shooter.
I would be remiss in my obligation to the truth if I didn’t raise the issue of whether Marilou Danley (what a name for a Flip) wasn’t a whore back in her younger days in the Philippines. The country is famous for its women whoring themselves to white American men.
I’m not saying Danley was a whore, but her past is relevant in terms of her credibility as a witness.
If Paddock was set up, then Danley could easily be part of the plot, rewarded with all his assets as her inheritance, including any life insurance he may have had.
