Police confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Las Vegas shooter’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, is a person of interest in the investigation, according to Fox News.

Danley left the country before 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who wired tens of thousands of dollars overseas days prior, committed to heinous attack that killed 59 people.

Investigators are looking into whether Paddock sent the cash to Danley amid conflicting reports she’s in either the Philippines or Japan, the officials said.

In addition, a U.S. government source told Fox News that federal investigators have interviewed an “immediate relative” of Paddock’s girlfriend. This relative said the family found Paddock “unstable,” and he made relatives “uncomfortable.” FBI officials declined to comment on this interview.

Investigators noted the money crossing hands was a significant amount and authorities were trying to uncover who received the cash and where it currently is. It was not immediately clear when the money was transferred.
