Filipina no longer being sought as a ‘person of interest’ in Vegas massacre
SAN FRANCISCO — Las Vegas police say that a Filipino woman they were seeking is no longer considered a “person of interest” in the deadly mass shooting at a country music festival, in Las Vegas that killed at least 50 people at a country music festival.
Police say they don’t believe 62-year-old Marilou Danley was involved in the Sunday night shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded more than 500.
Marilou Danley, self-described as a former “high-limit hostess” at a casino, was initially identified by the Las Vegas Sheriff as a “person of interest.” She reportedly lived with the gunman Stephen Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada, sharing the address with him since January this year.
However, CNN is now reporting that she was out of the country when the shooting occurred, and police have cleared her in connection with the attack.
She has also lived in Sparks and Reno, Nevada, along with Canton, Ohio; Springdale, Arkansas; and Memphis, Tennessee, according to public records, according to an Associated Press report.
