The Las Vegas gunman’s girlfriend was added to a federal travel watch list



The girlfriend of the man behind the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas has been placed on a federal government watch list, according to ABC News.

ABC News on Wednesday reported that Marilou Danley has been designated as a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) “selectee.”

Federal law enforcement officials confirmed the designation to ABC News, which means authorities will be notified if Danley tries boarding any flight or crossing any border.

Two law enforcement sources said that the status will require Danley to undergo extra screening and notify authorities if she plans on exiting the U.S.

Some Twitter users on Wednesday speculated about Danley, who was dating Stephen Paddock before he opened fire on an outdoor concert earlier this month.

ABC News reported that the travel designation is called a Secondary Security Screening Selectee and will appear on Danley’s boarding pass.

The designation indicates that authorities want to know if Danley – a Filipino native who travels on an Australian passport – makes any effort to travel out of the region or America.

The status additionally gives TSA officers the authority to more aggressively probe Danley’s luggage.

Investigators at this stage believe that Danley neither played a part in nor had prior knowledge of Paddock’s decision to perpetrate a mass shooting.

Paddock earlier this month began shooting upon a country music event from his nearby hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

The gunman killed at least 58 people and wounded at least 527 others before taking his own life.

The rampage sparked renewed national debate over gun control as it also became the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
