Omar Mateen and wife and Noor Salman were in communication during the Orlando rampage.

At one point, she responded with a text saying that she loved him. Salman also tried calling her husband several times during the standoff, a second law enforcement official said. The timing of her calls came after reports of the attack had emerged, and apparently after she realized her husband might be responsible. He didn’t answer, the official said…

Salman, is now the focus of an investigation.

Authorities said she apparently gave conflicting accounts about what she knew of Mateen’s intentions in the hours before the attack.

She initially denied she had any idea what Mateen was going to do when he left the house Saturday, hours before the attack.

But in subsequent statements, Salman said she suspected her husband might be planning an attack, perhaps on Pulse, the officials said.
