On October 1, 2017 her boyfriend and roommate Stephen Craig Paddock committed the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
He opened fire from the 34th floor of the Mandalay Bay toward a crowd of people at the Route 91 Harvest music festival happening across the street, killing at least 59 people and injuring over 500 others. When authorities closed in on him from his hotel room, he committed suicide.
After the shooting took place, she was questioned by police.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo stated, "We are confident we have located the female person of interest." She was in the Philippines at the time of the shooting.
On October 3, 2017 authorities stated that she was a person of interest in the ongoing investigation of the mass shooting.
Hollywood LA News reported in October 2017 that Everipedia had erroneously reported that Marilou Danley's ex-husband Geary Danley was responsible for the 2017 Mandalay Bay Mass Shooting. Marilou Danley was cleared of wrongdoing by investigators in January 2018.
