Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern America, said in a statement read by her attorney in a press conference on Wednesday that she was not aware that “something horrible like this was going to happen.” The transcripts of that statement are provided by Buzzfeed News.

Danley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday night from Manila, Philippines. She immediately met with FBI investigators but she is not in custody. Matthew Lombard, her attorney, said that he and his client are currently cooperating with the FBI and Las Vegas police about the investigation.

She described Stephen Paddock as a “kind, caring man” in a statement read by her attorney, Matthew Lombard, on Wednesday. She claimed that she did not see any warning signs that Stephen Paddock was planning the horrible attack and she believed that, sending her to the Philippines, and giving her money, was Paddock's way of breaking up with her. She added in her statement that she loved Paddock and hoped for a quiet future with him.

Motive behind the Las Vegas shooting incident

The motive behind the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States is still unknown to the investigators but the police said it was “obviously premeditated.” The police recovered 47 firearms from the suspect in three different locations.

The firearms were found in the hotel he stayed during the attack and from his two houses in Nevada.

According to The Telegraph, the investigators said on Tuesday that their top priority is to find the motive behind the horrible attack. The investigators are searching for clues in the gunman’s house and the room at Mandalay Bay.

The investigators are also searching for the motive through Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend, who already denied the knowledge about the attack, but is currently cooperating with the investigation.
