The workers behind the counter at the Starbucks inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite, Nev., winced whenever Stephen Paddock and his girlfriend, Marilou Danley, lined up for their usual beverages.
That’s because Paddock had a nasty habit of berating Danley in public. “It happened a lot,” Esperanza Mendoza, supervisor of the Starbucks, said Tuesday.
Their order was always the same. He’d get a venti mocha cappuccino and she a medium carmel macchiato.
Workers remembered Paddock as a tall man with a big beer belly and heavy bags under his eyes.
“He looked like he never slept because of the large bags under his eyes,” Mendoza said.
Danley was much shorter than Paddock and stood elbow-high when next to him.
