SYDNEY — The sisters of the Australian girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, Marilou Danley, have claimed she was unaware of the gunman’s plans as he organised a flight for her to the Philippines and wired her more than $100,000.

In an interview with Seven News from their Queensland home, Danley’s sisters insisted that she “was away so that she will not be there to interfere with what he’s planning.”

“I know that she don’t know anything as well like us. She was sent away [sic],” one of her sisters said.

“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’.”

“He sent her away so that he can plan what he is planning without interruptions. In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister’s life but that won’t be to compensate the 59 people’s lives.”

The claims come after Danley returned to the U.S. from the Philippines on Wednesday on an order from police as the search for answers to America’s deadliest mass shooting in modern history continues.

Las Vegas gunman wired $100k to a Philippines bank account

Marilou Danley, 62, who was overseas while her boyfriend committed the worst mass murder in US history, is now on her way back to the US to face questions from the FBI.

On Tuesday, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo confirmed Danley is a person of interest in the investigation again.

Authorities appeared to rule her out on Monday as it emerged that she was not in Las Vegas at the time of the killing. They have since determined that she was travelling between Tokyo and the Philippines at the time and they now wish to speak to her.

‘The investigation with her is ongoing and we anticipate some information from her shortly.  This investigation has not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock.

‘I expect a substantial amount of information is to come in the next 48 hours,’ Lombardo said on Tuesday.

Australian media said she was on vacation in the Philippines with three girlfriends.

RGJ reported:

During her divorce, Marilou Danley listed a downtown Reno unit at the Montage on Sierra Street as her address. At the time, the unit was owned by shooting suspect Stephen Paddock. Court records indicated that she started living at the address in August 2013. Paddock sold the condominium in December 2016.

Paddock (left in an undated photo) killed himself before a SWAT team could get to him on Sunday night. Marilou Danley, his girlfriend, was in Tokyo at the time. She will be questioned upon her return to the US on Wednesday

FOR TREASURE HUNTERS: 100 MANILA GALLEONS FULL OF GOLD IN SHALLOW SAN BERNARDINO STRAIT, PHILIPPINES

Posted on Updated on

  •  Of the approximately 130 Manila Galleons lost, close to 100 sank within a 50-mile radius of the entrance to shallow but dangerous St. Bernardino Strait, located on the eastern end of Luzon in the Philippine Archipelago, which separates the Pacific from the China Sea.
  • Five Manila Galleons are known to have sunk off the west coast of the United States. One, the San Agustin, sank in 1595, victim of a gale in Drakes Bay, northwest of San Francisco.
  • The sliver and gold was waggishly referred to as “silk money

The Manila Galleons: Treasures For The ”Queen Of The Orient”

 

Picture if you will, a four-deck, 100-gun, 2,500-ton vessel crossing the Pacific loaded with treasure and not making landfall for six months. Picture it as short and broad—with high fore and stern castles—carrying so much silver and gold, it draws 40 feet of water while skirting coral reefs 30 feet deep. It’s no wonder that close to 100 of them sank from 1570 to 1815, leaving a trail of treasure across the globe, while enhancing the image of adventure on the high seas aboard the MANILA GALLEONS.

 

Nowhere in the annals of the Spanish Empire’s colonial history did a treasure fleet attract so much intrigue and notoriety for its precious cargoes bound for the Far East. Maritime historians continue to pay homage to these vessels and their influence on international commerce that lasted for over 200 years. These were the largest ships afloat, plying long and risky routes. Convoys of two to five ships left Acapulco, Mexico, setting sail for the Spanish colony of Manila in the Philippines. On an average, three to five million silver pesos were shipped annually from Mexican mints to Manila, the “Queen of the Orient.”

The sliver and gold was waggishly referred to as “silk money.” Silk stockings were prized by the fashionable Spanish gentry in Mexico and Spain. But the silver and gold bought other lavish exports as well. They came from all over the Far East: spices, Ming porcelain, opals, amethysts, pearls and jade. There were art treasures, ebony furniture, carved ivory and other exquisite rarities found only in China, Japan, India, Burma and Siam.

The galleons, after a long and laborious return voyage eastward, often made landfall around Cape Mendocino, California, then sailed on to Acapulco. Once unloaded, the cargoes were transported overland by mule train to Veracruz and then taken by Spanish galleons to Seville, Spain. Five Manila Galleons are known to have sunk off the west coast of the United States. One, the San Agustin, sank in 1595, victim of a gale in Drakes Bay, northwest of San Francisco.

Manifests show that one third of all the silver and gold mined in the Spanish New World made its way to the Far East aboard the lumbering Manila Galleons. Ingots and heavy chests of coins were stored over the keel in the main hold, often the only ballast used for draft and stability. The ships also carried supplies to colonists in the Marianas and Philippines. The Strait of San Bernardino, on the eastern end of Luzon in the Philippine Archipelago, separates the Pacific from the China Sea and remains one of the most treacherous passages ships must ply. Even the most seasoned mariners fear entering and exiting the shallow poorly marked waterway. Of the approximately 130 Manila Galleons lost, close to 100 sank within a 50-mile radius of the entrance to this dangerous strait. Some of the vessels simply ran aground on reefs or shoals, while others were lost in storms or sunk by British and Dutch privateers.

NAVY DESTROYER USS FITZGERALD COLLIDES WITH PHILIPPINE MERCHANT SHIP OFF JAPAN: 7 SAILORS MISSING

Posted on

 

( Daily Mail ) Rescuers are searching for seven US Sailors thought to be lost at sea or trapped inside a damaged Navy destroyer which collided with a 29,000 ton cargo ship 56 miles off the coast of Japan Saturday.

The guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald suffered severe damage when the container ship ACX Crystal – which is four times the size of the naval vessel – plowed into it at 2.30am local time.

Aerial footage shows the crushed exterior of the 9,000 ton $1.5billion destroyer which is commanded by Commander Bryce Benson, who took over in May.

Japanese coast guard spokesman Yoshihito Nakamura said the rescuers are searching for the seamen who were thought to have been thrown into the sea or possibly trapped inside damaged sections of the destroyer. Two crew berthings and one engineering main space have been flooded.

Three aboard the destroyer were medically evacuated, including the ship’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Benson, who was reportedly in stable condition after being airlifted to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, the Navy said.

The other two injured were transferred to the hospital for lacerations and bruises, while other injuries were being assessed, it said.

‘It was a was real fight by crew to keep the ship afloat. Our concerns now are with ship mates; seven sailors missing and 2 evacuees. When the news came we were all focused on the safety of or ship and the crew,’ a naval spokesman in Yokosuka told DailyMail.com. ‘We at the base are still reeling from the events.’

GORGEOUS! MELANIA TRUMP WEARS GOWN BY FILIPINO DESIGNER MONIQUE LHUILLIER DURING FORD GALA

Posted on Updated on

 

First Lady Melania Trump chose  a blush-toned slinky gown by Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier during Ford’s Theatre Gala in Washington, D.C. Sunday.

This is an encouraging sight for the Filipino people who are currently waging war against ISIS in Mindanao.

 

From Breitbart:

Eyewitnesses from the besieged city of Marawi have described how Islamic State terrorists have recruited children as young as 13 years old to carry out executions, as previously reported by Breitbart News’s Frances Martel.

Last month, terrorist fighters from the ISIS-affiliated Maute group freed roughly 100 terrorists from Mindanao prisons before raising the Islamic State flag over the city. Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte — who resides on the island of Mindanao, where Marawi is located — has declared a 60-day period of martial law in response to the ongoing crisis.
