United States authorities have since named Ms Danley a "person of interest" in the investigation, and said they had been in contact with her seeking information on Paddock shortly after the shooting.

"Marilou Danley is no longer being sought out as a person of interest", the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) said. Authorities later said Danley was taken into custody outside the country for questioning and they do not believe she was involved.

It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

The sheriff said on Monday that Danley was in Japan but in the latest media conference he said she was in the Philippines.

The girlfriend of the man who opened fire on concertgoers in Las Vegas, killing dozens and wounding hundreds more, arrived in Los Angeles Tuesday night as the investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history is underway.

Paddock, 64, began shooting from the window of his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino just after 10 p.m. local time Sunday evening, police said.

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock wired US$100,000 to an account in the Philippines, his girlfriend's home country, days before he committed the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, NBC News reports, citing law enforcement officials.

The paper said Benjamin Hoskins Paddock lived in Oregon's Eugene-Springfield area for several years under the name Bruce Werner Ericksen.

She and Paddock started dating in spring 2017.

"Bottom line, this man was a gambler, but I do not believe there is sufficient evidence to show that he was under stress financially from gambling at the time this incident occurred", Sen.

"Everyone I speak to about this case talks about it as being an anomaly", Herridge told Smith. "He never went out in the back and enjoyed the backyard, nature", she said.

Stephen Paddock had no criminal history in Nevada, police say.

Danley is a former Gold Coast resident who has been living in the US for about 20 years.

Paddock's brother claims their father was Patrick Paddock, also known as Benjamin Patrick Paddock, "Baldy", "Big Daddy" and "Chromedome".
