What does she know? Paddock's girlfriend deleted Facebook page right after shooting

One October shooter's girlfriend deleted Facebook page right after shooting (KSNV)

She's been described by authorities as Stephen Paddock's roommate, the girlfriend we know was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting.

We also know Marilou Danley was wired $100,000 by Paddock. The money she says she believed was an indication he wanted to end the relationship.

On Friday, it was also revealed from previously sealed records that Danley was initially identified by authorities as the person who "most likely aided or abetted Stephen Paddock".

Charges against her have never been filed, and Danley has repeatedly denied having any foreknowledge of the incident.

But the newly released documents contain a find by an FBI investigator who says Danley attempted to change her Facebook privacy settings at 12:03 a.m. on October second.

That's only about two and a half hours after the first shots rang out. At 2:46 a.m., investigator says Danley deleted her Facebook account altogether.

But it wasn't until 3:30 that morning, police actually revealed Stephen Paddock's name to the public.

Marilou Danley's quick response on her Facebook account doesn't necessarily contradict her claim of having no prior knowledge, but it does beg more questions: Was there any contact between the two the night of the shooting? What exactly did she know?
