Focus Now Turns to Las Vegas Shooter ‘Companion’ Marliou Danley (UPDATE)


62-year-old Marilou Danley has been identified as a “person of interest” by Las Vegas police in the aftermath of a deadly concert shooting last night that has led to the reported deaths of 50 people and injuries to over 200 individuals. There are multiple reports that Danley accompanied the assailant — ID’d as Stephen Paddock by local authorities — and that she would likely have insights into what spawned such a horrible attack.

Ms. Danley is now in LVPD custody and is undergoing questioning. Facebook has taken down her page, but nonetheless, here is what we now know.

– Danley is a former “high-limit hostess” at a Las Vegas casino.

– Her now deleted Facebook page featured numerous family and vacation photos.

– She described herself as the “roommate” of the shooter, Paddock

– Legal documents suggest that Danley is married to an individual named Geary Danley  of Arkansas.

At least one concert goes told local media of a woman telling concert-goers that they were “all going to die” though this video in the tweet embedded below cannot be verified to relate to Ms. Danley:

UPDATE 8:10 a.m. ET — The Las Vegas Police Department has now issued a statement that Danley is no longer considered a person of interest.

“Detectives have made contact with her and do not believe she’s involved with the the shooting on the strip.”

UPDATE 9:04 a.m. ET — The Las Vegas police department reports that Danley was actually out of the country.
