Investigators are trying to determine if the Orlando gunman’s wife, Noor Salman, should face any charges after they say she knew about her husband’s deadly plan and reportedly tried to talk him out of it.
Depsite what she knew, Salman never called authorities.
A law enforcement official says investigators who have spoken with Mateen’s wife are looking into whether the two of them were recently at or outside the nightclub he attacked.
The official is familiar with the investigation, but was not authorized to discuss the investigation by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The official says investigators had been told that Mateen and his wife had been at the Pulse nightclub on a prior occasion and were trying to confirm the accuracy of that statement.
The official says the FBI has Mateen’s phone and will try to use data from it to see if he had visited the club before.
The official says investigators have not ruled out charging anyone who may have had advance knowledge of the attack.
