Vegas Gunman Sent Girlfriend Away So She Wouldn’t Interfere with Mass Shooting, Her Sisters Claim

The gunman who opened fire on a crowd of thousands in Las Vegas on Sunday night sent his girlfriend to the Philippines days before his attack so that she wouldn’t interfere, her sisters claimed in a new interview.

Marilou Danley, 62, reportedly arrived back in the U.S. 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.

Las Vegas authorities described Danley, reportedly an Australian citizen who has lived in the U.S. for years, as a “person of interest” in the investigation, but they have not been more specific.

Ex-Girlfriend of SC Serial Killer Speaks Out: ‘I Knew There Was Something About Him’

Holly Eudy says she knew there was something off about Todd Kohlhepp during their 10-year relationship.

“There was always something that sat uneasy with me about him and I just really couldn’t put my finger on it,” she said during an interview with Inside Edition.

Along with the public, Eudy learned that Kohlhepp admittedly killed several people over a 13-year period. The murders likely occurred during Eudy’s romance with the real estate agent, but she said she knew nothing about his double life.

“It’s disgusting,” she told Inside Edition of the news. “I mean, it was sickening.”

Kohlhepp pleaded guilty earlier this year to killing seven people. He will serve seven consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole but he will be spared the death penalty.

Kohlhepp was initially taken into custody last November after police freed missing woman Kala Brown, 30,
