According to NBC News, his wife was well aware of his plans to attack the nightclub, tried to talk him out of it, but ultimately didn’t bother to mention the fact to police.

Officials investigating the case claim that Noor, Mateeen’s wife, told the FBI she dashed out with her husband to pick up ammunition and a new holster:

“She told the FBI that she once drove him to the gay nightclub, Pulse, because he wanted to scope it out.”

“Authorities are considering filing criminal charges against Noor for failing to tell them what she knew before the brutal attack, law enforcement officials say, but no decision has been made.”

Mateen’s ex-wife Sitora Yusufiy has widely condemned the attacks.
