Marilou Danley, a former “high-limit hostess” at a casino, was identified by the Las Vegas Sheriff as a “person of interest” in the mass shooting that took the lives of at least 50 people at a country music concert at the Mandalay Bay resort and casino on the Las Vegas strip.
The mother and grandmother, whose now deleted Facebook page was full of photos with family members and trips overseas, was described by police as a 4’11” Asian woman. She was described as a “companion” of the still unidentified shooter. Police stopped short of calling Danley a suspect in the early morning hours of October 2, but they said they wanted to talk to her about the carnage. The sheriff also revealed that, in addition to the 50 deaths, at least 200 people were injured late on October 1 when the shooter opened fire on the crowd at a Route 91 Harvest country music festival near the Mandalay Bay.
