Las Vegas Gunman’s Girlfriend Led a Controversial Life of Her Own, Having Two Social Security Numbers, Several Home Addresses, and Two Legal Husbands


Marilou Danley, the girlfriend to the Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock led a very confusing life. She is initially from the Philippines but she has been living in the United States for over 20 years.

Marilou Danley, who is now a person of interest in the ongoing investigation held two social security cards and was legally married to two men simultaneously. She the person who should help the police to solve the puzzle as to why her boyfriend killed 59 people and injured over 500 others, yet her own life is a puzzle that needs to be resolved. Additionally, Marilou has several home addresses and different ages on record.

The FBI, according to Newsweek, is working extra hard to fly Marilou Danley back to the US for further questioning. She is expected to tell the authorities what she knows about the Las Vegas shooting, and also shed some light about the $100,000 Paddock sent to her family a few days before the incidence.

The Past of Marilou Danley

Public records about Marilou’s past are overly confusing. She first arrived in the US in 1990, under the name Marilou Natividad. She married Geary Danley the same year, took his last name and became Marilou Danley. Geary Danley, who has not responded to any question about Marilou, currently lives in Arkansas.

Marilou Became Marilou Bustos in 1996 after getting married to Jose Bustos. However, she kept the two husbands until 2015 when she officially divorced Geary Danley.

Both of her marriage documents are filed in the County Clark offices in Las Vegas. However, none of the two families lived in Las Vegas at the time of marriage. Danley resided in Tennessee and Arkansas while Jose Bustos lived in California. She is also reported to have a daughter living in California. The daughter’s biological father remains a mystery; it could be one of the husbands, the boyfriend or even another man.

In 2012, Marilou filed for bankruptcy as Marilou Bustos. At this time, she was still married to Danley but lived with her boyfriend, Stephen Paddock in Reno, Nevada.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo declared Marilou a person of interest in the ongoing investigation despite the fact that she had already been cleared by the police earlier in the week.

While it’s possible to have two social security numbers and own several homes across states in the US, it is not allowed for a woman to be legally married to more than one man at the same time.
