The Las Vegas gunman's girlfriend returned to the USA overnight after a weekslong trip overseas and was met by investigators seeking to question her for clues to what drove Stephen Paddock to slaughter 59 people from his high-rise hotel suite.

The investigation into the motives of a Las Vegas retiree who killed 58 people in the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history turned on Tuesday to the gunman's girlfriend in the Philippines, where she turned up after the massacre, authorities said.

Jorge Juertes lived next door to Paddock's mother when she resided in Dallas, Texas, and said he met the killer once.

Stephen Paddock was man responsible for America's worst ever mass shooting.

"They will be speaking to her extensively, trying to get inside the mind of Stephen Paddock and understand what was going on in the days, the weeks, the months leading up to his attack".

"We are making arrangements to contact her upon her return", he said.

Two Nevada gun shops have confirmed that they sold firearms to Paddock in the past year and said he passed all required background checks.

"I anticipate he was looking for anybody coming to take him into custody", said Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

Workers at Stephen Paddock's local Starbucks immediately remembered the tall man with a big beer belly and bags under his eyes who used to come in with his girlfriend, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Tony Abbott is therefore entitled to equal time - as many minutes as Macklemore gets for his song. "I'm getting a lot of tweets from angry old white dudes in Australia", he added .

Reports say she moved to the United States 20 years ago, marrying Geary Danley from Arkansas. Investigators found a computer and 23 guns in Paddock's hotel room.

Lombardo said he is "absolutely" confident authorities will find out what set Paddock off.

On top of the shooter's motives, authorities want to ask Danley about her knowledge of a $100,000 wire transfer to an account in the Philippines.

He used "bump stocks", attachments that allow a semi-automatic rifle to mimic a fully automatic weapon by unleashing an entire large magazine in seconds.

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Juertes said: "He wasn't very sociable".

Paddock's girlfriend has since touched down in the United States after flying from the Philippines to be interviewed by the FBI as part of the ongoing investigation.

Danley remains a person of interest in the law enforcement investigation merely because she reportedly had the closest relationship with Paddock. Authorities have not yet determined the exact date or objective of the wire transfer or who the recipient was. "He loved her. I mean he doted on her". Danley's sister also echoed the sentiment, saying Marilou had no knowledge of Paddock's plans and that "she was sent away". Stanton said Lombard is expected to put out a statement later Wednesday.

A total of 47 guns have been recovered from three locations: Paddock's hotel room and his two Nevada homes in Verdi and Mesquite.

Investigators also found explosives in his home and ammonium nitrate (used as a bomb ingredient) in his vehicle.
