Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in his live-in girlfriend's home country, the Philippines, in the week before he unleashed the worst mass shooting in modern USA history, according to multiple senior law enforcement officials.
She reportedly returned to the USA on Tuesday to clear her name of any connection to the shooting.
Paddock reportedly met Danley several years ago while she was working at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Nevada. More than 500 people were injured, some were trampled.
It's been revealed Paddock placed cameras around his motel room so he could watch for police during his killing spree.
Police initially sought out Danley following the shooting, but then ruled her out as a person of interest in the case after they discovered she was out of the country. NBC says that Danley traveled to the Philippines on September 25 via Hong Kong. She was accompanied by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles, where Las Vegas police planned to question her, the source said. He said he did not know about the reported wire transfer.
Paddock smuggled a cache of 23 weapons into the hotel, including AK-47s and "bump stock" devices to make his guns fully automatic, in 10 separate bags. After finding Danley's identifying material in the gunman's hotel suite, investigators learned she was out of the country as the massacre was carried out.
According to her sisters, Danley is now the only person who can shed light on the possible motives and mindset of the gunman despite being unaware of his impending actions, defending her as a "good person".
The shooter's brother shared the same view as Danley's sisters - that his brother wanted his girlfriend far away from the scene of the carnage.
Marilou Danley has "questions to answer" when she returns to the USA, police say.
The Philippine police official said authorities in Manila were told that Paddock used identification belonging to Ms Danley, who has an Australian passport, when checking in to the Las Vegas hotel.
More than two days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, the question of why someone with no known record of violence or crime would open fire on a country music festival was unanswered. Law enforcement authorities had been in communication with her and anticipated "some information here from her shortly", he said during a news conference.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department asked people to avoid the south end of the Strip, saying parts had been shut down as they investigated reports of an active shooter. The investigation agency is ascertaining whether the woman had prior knowledge of Stephen Paddock's nefarious plan. Stanton said Lombard is expected to put out a statement later Wednesday.
