"In that sense I thank him for sparing my sister's life".
Although police said they had no other suspects, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said investigators wanted to talk with Paddock's girlfriend and live-in companion, Marilou Danley, who he said was traveling overseas in Tokyo.
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.
'That's because of what he'd done and because we have been face to face with this man so many times'. Because Steve is not here to talk anymore.
"He would glare down at her and say - with a mean attitude - 'You don't need my casino card for this", Mendoza told the Times. The 62-year-old Filipino-born woman landed at Los Angeles International Airport at 7:17 p.m. PT on Philippine Air Flight 102. Danley was allegedly in the Philippines during the attack and was met by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents upon her arrival at LAX. Danley had arrived in the Philippines from Tokyo on September 15, then left for Hong Kong on September 22, and flew back to the Philippines on September 25, Mangrobang said.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters meeting President Trump's plane in Nevada that the interview was to be conducted shortly.
"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".
Reports say she moved to the United States 20 years ago, marrying Geary Danley from Arkansas.

Before lunch on day four, Pakistan was trailing the Sri Lankan first innings total of 419 by 79 runs with two wickets intact. The fact it would be Sri Lanka who would be signing for a win at the end of the day will not have been universally foreseen.
Why did he continue firing with an arsenal of weapons for nine to 11 minutes, leaving at least 58 people dead and more than 500 with gunshot wounds or stampede injuries? Police say the shooter killed himself.
At this point, Paddock's motive and aims remain a mystery to investigators.
However, no terrorist links have been confirmed and officials were earlier keen to play down the notion that Paddock was working with anybody.
Ms Danley, who moved from the Philippines to Queensland in the 1980s, is a potential key figure in discovering Paddock's motive.
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said her government was working with United States authorities but told CNN affiliate Sky News on Monday that Australia had had no direct contact with Danley.
At the casino in Reno, Nevada, where they met several years ago, Stephen Paddock was a "big fish" and Marilou Danley a petite hostess. It's unclear when the couple met.
She married American Geary Danley in 1990, and they registered their marriage in Nevada.
When asked if Ms Danley was a suspect the sheriff replied: 'Currently she is a person of interest'.
