Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock would lie in bed screaming, his girlfriend has reportedly told the FBI.
Marilou Danley, 62, said 64-year-old Paddock would lie in bed ‘moaning and screaming’: “Oh my God”, leading investigators apparently to suspect he may have been in ‘mental or physical anguish’.
Danley’s comments, made during interviews when she returned to the US from the Philippines, were revealed by an ex-FBI official and reported in various outlets.
But the sources are said to have added that detectives are still no closer to finding out why Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers in Las Vegas, killing 59 people and injured nearly 500 others.
Paddock and Danley shared a home in the town of Mesquite, 80 miles (130 kilometers) northeast of Las Vegas, where the authorities found a number of guns while searching the property.
Danley has issued a statement through her lawyer telling how Paddock had bought her a surprise ticket to the Philippines to visit her family and she had no idea he was planning the horrific attack.
