This was breaking some hours ago in a number of media outlets. I'll go with NY Post here.

Vegas shooter’s girlfriend may have known something was up

Even before her boyfriend was named as the man responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, Marilou Danley knew something was up.

An hour before Las Vegas cops released Stephen Paddock’s name, Danley deleted her Facebook account, according to newly released documents about the Oct. 1 mass murder of 58 people attending an outdoor country music concert on the Strip.

Paddock began firing at around 10:08 p.m., according to emergency calls received by police.

At 2:46 a.m., her account was deleted, said the documents.

Authorities released Paddock’s name to the public at 3:30 a.m.

Assuming all this is correct, Danley deleted her Facebook account an hour before Paddock's name was released to the public which would seem to suggest that at the very least, she strongly suspected that Paddock was the shooter. The Philippines has a single time zone and it's 16 hours ahead of Las Vegas. That would mean that she'd deleted her Facebook account at 10:46 am local time.

This information is part of a series of disclosures coming from more than 300 pages of documents unsealed by the U.S. District Court judge in Las Vegas at the behest of media outlets.

Other bits, which like the above are not conclusive evidence of Danley having foreknowledge of the attack, are also very interesting. From an LA Times piece published yesterday:

Vegas gunman’s girlfriend told investigators her fingerprints would probably be on ammo. And they were

Her fingerprints were on the ammunition. Her casino players' card was found in his room. Investigators scoured her social media accounts and emails — one of which he, Stephen Paddock, had access to.

In the court documents, she told investigators she occasionally participated in the loading of the magazines.

I guess 'pillow talk' is too speculative for prosecution. As long as they never spoke via social media or emails, nobody will ever know how much she knew. Was it a $100k she got? Price for silence?

It's as if he expected to live through it all. Otherwise it made more sense to give it all to her.

I think something may be slightly wrong with the times. I was in a YouTube chat room right after the shooting and when they announced Paddock's girlfriend's name on the police scanner - I (and several others in the chat room) went and checked Facebook. One of the others in the chatroom even claimed to see Paddock's page at one time. But I specifically saw Marilou's page and even took some screenshots. There were also pictures of her Facebook account in the media the next day. So her account was up for a bit after Paddock's name was already announced since I - and others - saw the page and even the media had images from it...

EDIT TO ADD: I don't know for sure if the guy in the chat room with me saw a "Paddock page" since it supposedly never existed but that's what the guy said.

Now that'd instrresting. If true (which I don't doubt) why would they try and create an artificial narrative where she did deactivate her account before his name was released.

Also, like I say I don't doubt your story but others will and you just know they're gonna ask for proof. Do you still.have the screenshots? Might be am idea to edit them into your post if so.

I saw a page that looked like paddocks but I’m not entirely sure it was his. It was full of casino posts, nothing else

Do you have the screenshots still? What's the creation time?

Screenshots?! If you've got them, they'll probably go viral. They'd be big news.

Yeah, I will definitely look tomorrow. Lying in bed reading ATS right now. Do you happen to know who is pushing this story out? Because as I mentioned - even the media had screenshots from her facebook account the next day. So her page had to have been up when the media knew her name / to goo look at her page, as well...

So it doesn't look as if the media is now saying she deleted it before her name was mentioned publicly.

Her name was mentioned on the scanner at the time of the breach - when they found her ID. That was around 11:15 if I remember correctly.

This report says the Las Vegas PD is saying she made it private at 12:30 and deleted it by 2:46 their time (Las Vegas).


Thus, her name was definitely announced at least an hour before she made it private and 3 hours before she took it down.

This is not my screenshot but I found this online pretty easily. This is the exact same page I saw:

And another:

There are actually a ton online that were taken and posted on places like Twitter after her name was announced and before she took it down.

This is on Twitter:

See my post above. Apparently, many people got screenshots. I think some news outlets were reporting what the LVPD said recently, incorrectly. Or were confusing their times. Looking at the time the LVPD actually gave for her taking it down, she did so a good bit after her name was announced over the police scanner, when they found her ID. There are actually many screenshots of her page before she took it down, that can be found online.

Personally, I think all this evidence is suspect. Whoever he was selling the guns to were the real shooter(s). His girlfriend’s fingerprints were on the ammo because she was there days before the shooting to help facilitate his illegal arms deal.

Speaking ofthe info in the other thread about this, it doesn’t make much sense for him to be emailing himself memos like ‘look into AR before you buy, we have lots here in Vegas area,’ they were obviously CC or BCC and the recipient’s email and ID have been erroneously scrubbed from all the paperwork and databases associated with this case.

Ahhhh I see. It isn't a story I've been deep into. My plan has been to sit back and wait for any sense to come out of it all. There were so many angles in the aftermath that it was hard to weigh them all up.

Isn't it standard practice to notify family members before making names public?

Why the false narrative by the msm?

More likely that reporters get twitchy and start publishing rumors in the aftermath when viewers are hungry for information but theres no statement from law enforcement

is it possible this timeline is wrong due to daylight savings time? remember while most of the US and Canada do daylight savings, where the time gets adjusted by an hour ahead or behind, depending on when in the year it is. the Philippines is one of the many countries that does not change the time at all. depending on the time of year time in the Philippines, it is either 12 or 13 hours ahead of New York. (a giant pain in the butt, they seriously need to dump daylight savings time). so instead of the account being deleted 45 minutes before it happened, was it actually deleted 15 minutes after it happened, with the confusion being due to daylight savings time issues?

ETA i do remember that i knew about the attack happening, as it was happening here in the Philippines. so she easily could have known as it was happening as well.

I saw some court looking papers in the 4's that seemed to like like Paddock was selling weapons even bumpstocks and 100 round drums. I wonder if those papers were legit.

There is something so fishy with all of this.

Who can blame her ? She made some bad life choices , look how he left her in the limelight.

Hope you guys don't mind me putting this here, wasn't around when LV went down so I don't know the threads following the story:

Previously sealed F.B.I. affidavit reveals Stephen Paddock may have had help from “others”

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — A previously sealed affidavit in support of an application for a search warrant pertaining to Stephen Paddock and his girlfriend Mari Lou Danley’s email accounts reveals Paddock was likely in contact with at least one other individual who helped plan the gruesome 1 Oct. massacre which took place at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival where 58 people lost their lives from gunfire.

In the affidavit, F.B.I. Special Agent Ryan S. Burke requested that search warrants be issued based on “probable cause” for information associated with email accounts (“Target Account 1” associated with Stephen Paddock) and (“Target Account 2” associated with Mari Lou Danley).

The request explained that there was “probable cause” and cited the following violations A through D:

a. Destruction/Damage of Aircraft or Aircraft Facilities – 18 U.S.C.A. 32(a);

b. – Violence at International Airport – 18 U.S.C. and

c. Unlawful Interstate Transport/Delivery of Firearms by Non Federal
Firearms Licensee 18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and

d. Aiding and Abetting 13 U.S.C. 2.

Special Agent Burke went on to confirm in the affidavit that such “offenses have been committed by STEPHEN PADDOCK, MARILOU DANLEY, and others yet unknown.”

The airport makes sense, but 'others unknown' doesn't make too much sense.

I think I may have used the wrong terminology. It wasn't necessarily "releasing" her name or Paddock's (but she wasn't really a relative, she was just a gf anyway)... it was that many (like me) were listening to the police scanner as they breached the room and found her ID. Her name was actually mentioned on the scanner before Paddock's.

Thus, I am sure many - like me - went and looked at her facebook page. Including many reporters. They probably started messaging her like crazy and that might have necessitated her to make it private first an hour after the breach (and her name being said over the police scanner) and then take it completely down 2-3 hours later.
