Police are not aware whether the devices were transmitting - the FBI is investigating their use.

Australia's Channel 7 TV network interviewed Marilou Danley's sisters with their faces obscured and their names withheld. He also may have scouted out the location, renting a room at the Ogden, a nearby hotel, during the Life is attractive festival a week earlier, Lombardo said.

Investigators struggled to understand why Stephen Paddock, 64, assembled an arsenal of almost 50 firearms and used them to spray bullets from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas Strip hotel into a crowd of country-music fans on Sunday before killing himself. Twelve of the rifles there were fitted with so-called bump stocks, officials said, allowing the guns to be fired nearly as though they were automatic weapons. He did not elaborate.

The pair claim Ms Danley did not know anything about boyfriend Stephen Paddock's plan to open fire on thousands of people at a country music event on the Vegas Strip.

While lax gun laws play a role, a number of other factors also contribute, experts said. "It's really a time that we have to heal. The state does not require licenses, registration or a waiting period for firearms, including semi-automatic rifles.

"He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something frightful like this was going to happen", Danley, 62, said in the statement released by her lawyer, Matt Lombard.

Danley returned late on Tuesday from a family visit to the Philippines. "She is now a person of interest". Lombard said his client, an Australian citizen of Filipino heritage, was cooperating fully with authorities. "She didn't even know that she was going to the Philippines until Steve said 'Marilou I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippines'". She was reportedly met by federal agents at the airport after traveling back from the Philippines. She then moved to the United States in 1989 to work as a hostess in casinos. NBC News reported on Tuesday that Paddock had recently wired more than $100,000 to an account in the Philippines, Danley's home country, though the reason is unclear. Reports say he sent her the money so she could buy a house but Ms. Danley says she was anxious because she thought it was a way for him to break up with her.

The sisters were thankful Ms Danley was sent away before the attack. They said they were surprised to learn Danley had gone to the Philippines two weeks ago, and they suggested that the trip had been Paddock's idea and that he had paid for it. He had no criminal record, no known history of mental illness and no outward signs of social disaffection, political discontent or extremist ideology, police said. Earlier, Trump used a brief address from the White House to call for unity in the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, calling it an "act of pure evil".
