Arkansas family receives death threats over connection to Las Vegas gunman

Arkansas family receives death threats over connection to Las Vegas gunman”

Initially, Danley was named by authorities a "person of interest" in connection with Sunday's shooting outside the Mandalay Hotel where 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured, the Gazette-Journal noted. Paddock was later found dead in a hotel room on the Strip with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"We are continuing the investigation into that female", said Sheriff Lombardo on Monday.

In one of the photos, Paddock can be seen smiling and laughing with Danley's family during a trip to Manila that took place in 2013.

"I've met her three or four times", Paddock's brother, Eric, was quoted by CBS News as saying.

On the surface, Paddock didn't seem like a typical mass murderer, said Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI hostage negotiator and supervisor in the bureau's behavioral science unit.

While online directories listed one of Marilou Danley's previous addresses as a Springdale duplex, Washington County and local law enforcement officials said they had no record of Danley living in Northwest Arkansas, noting that she may have lived there without any government agency knowing.

Stephen Paddock carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history. A number of media outlets are referring to him as a retiree who lived in a retirement community.

Police said the younger Paddock had no criminal history, and believe he acted alone.

Paddock landed on the FBI's Most Wanted list after he escaped from a Texas federal prison in 1960.

The 23-year-old and his mom were the first of Danley's relatives to meet Paddock, a retired accountant and gambling addict with whom she shared a home in Mesquite, Nevada, about 80 miles from Vegas.

"I can't even make something up", his bewildered brother, Eric Paddock, told reporters Monday.

The network reported that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sherriff Joe Lombardo was incorrect when he said that Danley was located by police in Tokyo immediately after the shooting.

Paddock told the USA TODAY Network in an interview that their late father, Benjamin Paddock, was a convicted bank robber and they were raised without him for most of their childhood.

The sins of the father should not, of course, be visited upon the son, but this new intel on Stephen Paddock's family history is obviously as germane to the mystery of his savage outbreak as any random speculation or ISIS claims.

"He sends me a text that says he won $250,000 at the casino". There, he ran a bingo parlor using the alias Bruce Werner Ericksen.

Morris said she later walked back to her hotel through a "ghost town Vegas".
