Good afternoon. I want to thank everyone for their patience. I want to let everyone know that we are fully cooperating with the FBI and the Las Vegas Police Department about these horrible, unspeakable acts of violence. It’s taken us this long to make a statement because it’s important that we respect the investigative process. We wanted the FBI and the Las Vegas Police Department to have the first opportunity to talk to my client, Marilou Danley, about everything that she knew about Stephen [Paddock]. That being said, I have a statement to read from my client, Marilou Danley.
“I am devastated by the deaths and injuries that have occurred, and my prayers go out to the victims and their families and all those who have been hurt by these awful events. I have faith in god and I will continue to pray for everyone who has been harmed or hurt. I am a mother and a grandmother and my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones.
I was grateful, but honestly I was worried that first the unexpected trip home and then the money was a way of breaking up with me. It never occurred to me in anyway whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone.
“I have not made a statement until now because I have been cooperating with the authorities and I voluntarily flew back to American because I knew that the FBI and the Las Vegas Police Department wanted to talk to me and I wanted to talk to them. I will cooperate fully with their investigation. Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in anyway, I will do
