WATCH: Sisters of Las Vegas Gunman’s Girlfriend Say She “Was Sent Away” Before Shooting

The sisters of the Las Vegas gunman’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, sat down for an exclusive interview with Channel 7‘s Sharyn Ghidella. The interview is set to air in its entirely at 6:00 pm Australian Eastern Time Zone.

“Las Vegas gunman’s girlfriend was “sent away” to Philippines before deadly shooting, sister tells NBC News partner @Channel7,” tweeted NBC News.

NBC News followed up by tweeting, “Sister of the Las Vegas gunman’s girlfriend say she was “sent away” to Philippines before deadly shooting.”

“Sisters of Marilou Danley tell 7 News Stephen Paddock put her on a plane weeks before the Las Vegas shooting,” tweets journalist Eoin Blackwell.

The sisters claim Danley, nor they, knew anything about Stephen Paddock’s plan to carry out a mass shooting from the Mandalay Bay hotel.

SISTER TO CHANNEL 7:

“I know that she don’t know anything as well like us. She was sent away. She didn’t even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said, ‘Marilou I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines.’ He sent her away so that he can plan what he is planning without interruptions. In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister’s life but that won’t be to compensate the 59 people’s lives.”

The sisters then defended Marilou, claiming she is a “good person.”

SISTER TO CHANNEL 7:

“No one can put the puzzles together. No one, except Marilou, because Steve is not here to talk anymore. Only Marilou can maybe help. She was even shocked than us because she is more closer to him than us. To be able to find out the person that you love and live with can do such thing, and you thought you know the person yourself. Marilou Danley is my sister, she is a good person and gentle soul. A mother, a grandmother, a sister and friend.”

In yet another strange turn of events, Las Vegas shooting ‘person of interest’ Marilou Danley is allowed to go free after meeting with FBI agents at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday evening.

ABC News reports:

Alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend is back in the United States.

Marilou Danley landed at Los Angeles International Airport at 7:17 p.m. PT on Philippine Air Flight 102, multiple law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

Danley, who was returning from the Philippines, was taken out a back way so she would not be seen in public, and she was met by FBI agents immediately upon landing, ABC News reports.

While agents met Danley upon landing, she is not officially in custody and is free to go where she pleases.

The 62-year-old Danley was in a relationship with Paddock for a few years, reportedly meeting while she worked as a hostess at a Reno, Nevada casino. Danley left her husband, Geary Danley, in 2013 and moved in with Paddock. She officially filed for divorce in 2015.

Marilou Danley left the US to the Philippines on September 15, about two weeks before the deadly attack. She was in the Philippines when the money was wired to the country. Danley took a trip to Hong Kong from the Philippines on September 22 for a four day trip.

Marilou Danley traveled to Hong Kong from the Philippines last Monday the 25th. Her boyfriend Stephen Paddock went to the Manalay Bay Hotel on last Thursday to prepare for his mass killing at the country music festival. Hong Kong is a typical stopping point for travelers to the Philippines.
