Girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock returns to United States from Philippines

Route 91 festival goes dive for cover after the Las Vegas shooting

Marilou Danley, 62, reportedly arrived back in the USA late Tuesday - two days after police say her boyfriend, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, gunned down 58 people and injured more than 500 others at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Footage obtained by NBC purportedly of Marilou Danley, 62, shows a woman in a wheelchair with a dark visor covering her face and and police escorting her through the airport.

Speaking to CNN's Australian affiliate 7 News with their faces blurred and their names not identified, Danley's sisters revealed that she was in the Philippines and arrived back in the us on Tuesday (Oct. 3).

Marilou Danley, 62, was visiting the Philippines when the shooting took place and she recently arrived back in the USA on Tuesday evening.

Even Danley's nephew, Jordan Knights, is baffled over what prompt Paddock to open fire on concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival taking place next to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, killing at least 59 people and wounding hundreds more.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo said police expected more information from her "shortly". She is considered a "person of interest" in the case but police have not named her as a suspect.

"I know that she don't know anything [about the attacks] as well like us", Danley's other sister states.

Australia's Channel 7 interviewed Danley's sisterst today, with one of them saying Danley was sent away by Paddock so she didn't interfere with his plans to carry out the shooting.
