In a shocking new development, a record from Intelius, an online public record’s site reveals that the FBI is listed as a place of employment for MariLou Danley, the girlfriend of alleged Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock.
It has been nearly 10 months since the Las Vegas shooting. On October 1, 2017, police and FBI say alleged shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire from his 32nd floor suite at the Mandalay Bay onto a crowd of thousands of concertgoers who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.
Paddock, who has been deemed a “lone shooter” by disgraced Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo and Aaron Rouse, the Special Agent in Charge of Las Vegas FBI, killed 58 people and injured nearly 900 people.
Despite the fact that nearly an entire year has passed since the worst mass shooting in US history, investigators with the FBI and LVMPD under Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse and Sheriff Joe Lombardo have said that they have not been able to identify a motive.
On August 3, disgraced Clark County Sheriff Lombardo held a press conference and announced that he was closing the Las Vegas shooting investigation. During the press conference, Lombardo discussed the LVMPD’s “final report”, a 187 page document that he claimed outlines the entirety of the LVMPD investigation into the shooting.
At the same press conference, Lombardo announced that while Danley was originally a person of interest in the investigation, she was no longer under investigation.
Within hours of the shooting, Danley, who claimed to be in the Philippines the night of October 1, immediately deleted her Facebook. While Danley claimed that she didn’t know Paddock was planning a mass shooting, investigators later reveled that her fingerprints were found on the ammunition in Paddock’s suite. Police also found Danley’s Casino player’s card inside the suite at Mandalay Bay where the shooting occurred, and her name is listed as the last person to have checked Paddock’s car into valet at Mandalay Bay before the shooting. Before killing 58 people, Paddock also wired $100,000 to Danley’s bank account in the Philippines, which should have set off alarms with investigators since banks are required to flag accounts that make transfers bigger than $10,000 at a time.
In the months following the shooting, police documents pertaining to the investigation which a Nevada judge to be released to the public reveal that on the night of the shooting, LVMPD knew Danley had followers on Facebook who showed ISIS “beheading videos” on their Facebook pages. Within hours of the shooting, ISIS also claimed responsibility for the shooting. However, the FBI quickly dismissed ISIS’s claims before conducting a proper investigation, and stated just one day after the shooting that it was not an act of terrorism, despite overwhelming evidence that suggests otherwise.
Ten months after the shooting, and Danley is nowhere to be found. Despite the fact that the investigation has officially been closed, many questions remain unanswered. Danley, who is the one person who could shed light on Paddock’s nature and motivations, has not conducted any media interviews, is not on social media, and authorities will not reveal whether or not she has left the country. Danley is from Australia, and is from the same town as Brian Hodge, a key witness and suspect in the Vegas shooting who the FBI failed to investigate and question.
In fact, the only information the public has regarding Danley is screenshots from her since deleted Facebook and the pictures and testimony that investigators from the FBI and LVMPD have conveyed the public through their highly controlled press conferences. Additionally, not a single person has been able to make contact with Danley since the shooting, making her an ideal FBI asset. The FBI and LVMPD also announced earlier this year that they would not be replying to any more media requests or answering any more questions regarding the investigation outside of scheduled press conferences, which are now over since the investigation has been closed forever.
Along with the FBI, Atlantis and a company called One News Page Ltd are the two other places of employment listed on the Intelius records for MariLou Danley.
Even more disturbing than Danley’s alleged employment at the FBI is the fact that the FBI and Sheriff Lombardo have willingly decided to hide this key piece of information from the public for nearly an entire year. There has been a complete lack of transparency regarding the Vegas shooting investigation, which has fueled many different theories regarding Paddock’s motive, and whether or not the FBI itself was involved in the shooting and worse, the coverup of the shooting.
While the idea of MariLou Danley being an FBI employee may seem far fetched to some, the FBI’s history of having previous knowledge or ties to terrorists and killers cannot be ignored.
For example, two years prior to injuring 35 people in New York City with two homemade explosive devices, now-convicted terrorist Ahmad Khan Rahimi was investigated by the FBI after his own father told New Jersey police that his son was a terrorist.
After the information was given to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, officials opened a “simple assessment”, interviewed the father and then closed the case without punitive action.
Even the infamous San Bernardino terror couple, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, had been in constant contact with individuals under investigation by the FBI for suspected participation in international terrorism, prior to his 2015 holiday party shooting spree which left 14 dead in California.
And lets not forget the Orlando Pulse Nightclub killer, Omar Mateen, who had been investigated by the FBI for 10 months prior to committing the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.
Of course the bureau ultimately closed the case without finding any actionable evidence, and just over two years later the jihadist massacred 49 and wounded dozens more. It was later revealed during the trial this year that Mateen’s father was an FBI informant who may have convinced the Bureau to stop investigating his son, despite knowing that he was an ISIS terrorist.
Prior to the Las Vegas shooting, the Orlando Pulse attack was the worst mass shooting in US history. It wasn’t until two years after the shooting that the public found out that Mateen’s father worked for the FBI. Perhaps in another year when the Las Vegas shooting lawsuits are heard in federal court, it will also be confirmed that Danley was in fact working for the FBI as an asset or informant.
Whether it was the distractions from politically correct reforms forced on the agency by the Democrats during President Obama’s tenure, or the unfounded fruitless witch hunt into alleged manipulation of the 2016 election by unnamed Russians, the FBI of today has demonstrated a shocking disregard for their mission of protecting the American people and defending the U.S. Constitution.
Has the FBI become so politically compromised and derelict of its duties that only the thorough and systematic dismantling of the agency can restore a semblance of the rule of law Americans expect in the home of the free and the land of the brave? The Las Vegas shooting is only one piece of a very complicated puzzle in what is appearing to look like the beginning of the end of J. Edgar Hoover’s Federal Bureau of Investigation.
