7:00 am
good morning, america. good morning, america. this morning, last stand? the rebels say they are closing in on the libyan dictator moammar gadhafi. persistent but unconfirmed reports say he is ready to leave the country. could this be the end for one of the world's most dangerous, unpredictable and longest-ruling dictators. air show horror, spectators at a kansas city air show witnessed a terrifying scene, a stunt plane spins out of control and nose dives into the ground. it's the second air show accident this weekend. so, are they too dangerous? abc news has learned new details on the case of the missing american woman in aruba.
7:01 am
a key witness tells police he never saw the couple go snorkeling, poking a huge hole in the main suspect's story. and we have exclusive new video of gary giordano, handcuffed and looking noticeably different with no hairpiece. and super dog, how many volleys in the row do you think dog can do with his owner? 5, 10, 20? well, keep counting. >> announcer: from abc news, live from new york, this is "good morning america" with bianna golodryga and dan harris. well, happy sunday morning, that dog keeps going and going. >> his name is petey, he's a huge star. we'll show you him coming up. also coming up this morning, a very public family feud caught on tape. a yelling match seemed to erupt between a missing woman and her husband's family. susan powell's father was handing out flyers with his
7:02 am
daughter's picture on them when her father-in-law confronted him. we'll tell you why things got so bitter between these two families. >> very public feud. and as you know from covering wall street these past couple weeks, stocks have been gyrating all over the place. one thing is going up and up only and that is gold. this development has not escaped the attention of criminals breaking into jewelry stores and even ripping gold chains right off women's necks. we'll tell what to look out for. you can imagine there's a lot of gold and other bling in perhaps the most lavish reality show wedding which took place over the weekend. kim kardashian and kris humphries exchanged vows in front of 450 people. we've got all of the details, from what the dresses, plural, looked like, to the vows, and who was there. we'll start this morning with what may be the final days of moammar gadhafi's 41-year brutal and deeply weird dictatorship. rebels are closing in on him and abc's jeffery kofman reports in now near the libyan border. >> reporter: good morning to
7:03 am
you, dan. for the first time, libyan's longtime dictator appears to be running out of options. overnight, rebels began what they call the first true assault on tripoli, hitting from free fronts. with help from nato warplanes in the sky. that follows two significant victory this weekend as rebels took control cities just to the east and just to the west of tripoli. gadhafi himself appeared on ste tv overnight, calling in a crackling phone line, calling the rebels vermin, claiming they are being chased from city to city, but in fact, it appears exactly the opposite is true. meanwhile here in neighboring tunisia, for six months, they have refused to take sides in the libyan revolution, but this weekend recognizing the rebels as the sole legitimate government of libya. dan. >> jeffery kofman reporting, thank you. let's go straight to abc's david kerley who is on martha's vineyard where president obama is vacationing. david, good morning. i know the president is getting regular updates. do they think gadhafi is on his way out?
7:04 am
>> reporter: they won't say one way or the other. in fact the president should be briefed in the next coup of hours on the latest developments. what they will say, they're monitoring the situation very closely. they won't even confirm to us exactly what the u.s. role is with nato and what is happening with the push towards tripoli. what they do say, it does appear gadhafi appears to be getting more and more isolated but no indications he's preparing to leave or has left so far, dan. >> gadfi is holding the radio broadcasts where he says nothing is happening, everything is secure. that's the usual chain of events for him. let me ask you, if he leaves, is the white house confident that these rebels c c govern this country? >> reporter: you know, good news, bad news when you take the top off a boiling pot of water, it doesn't necessarily mean that everything is over. the good news is that the rebels have had a couple of months now to get organized politically and work with the international community. as jeffery mentioned, tunisia, the neighbor just recognized them. the administration feels they made progress. look, there are a lot of gadhafi supporters in tripoli.
7:05 am
just because gadhafi leaves doesn't mean all of a sudden libya becomes a peaceful place. >> there's a lost fighting among the rebels as well. there's nothing guaranteed here. david kerley, we appreciate your reporting this morning. thank you very much. a lost other headlines, let's go straight to ron claiborne who has the news for us. >> good morning, dan, good morning, everyone, we begin with two american hikers.the case of sentenced to 8 years in prison in iran for illegally entering that country. abc's lama hasan has the latest from london. lama, good morning. >> the chief prosecutor said the two american hikers josh fattal and shane bauer have been sentenced for eight years in prison, five years for allegedly spying for the united states and three years for illegally entering iran. the two were arrested by iranian security forces in 2009 along with their f fend, sarah shourd, who was also with them when they crossed an unmarked border
7:06 am
between iran and iraq. they all maintain their innocence and said they made a mistake and unwillingly strayed across the border. last september shourd was released on health grounds and on bail of $500,000. there is one glimmer of hope for fattal and bauer. in the past, iraq has sentenced foreigners and later reduced that sentence before finally freeing them. in the meantime, their lawyer said they will repeal their sentences and have 20 days to do so.. ron. >> lama hasan, thanks very much. and another violent incident in the parking lot of a sporting event. two men for shot, one of them critically after a football game between the 49ers and oakland raiders. back in march, a giants fan baseball fan was severely beaten after a game in los angeles. and an air show in kansas city, missouri, will be open again today after it was cut short on saturday because of a deadly crash in front of horrified spectators. thousands of them, a stunt plane
7:07 am
appeared to lose control of his plane after an aerial maneuver. a warning to viewers some of you may find this video disturbing. >> reporter: thousands were watching when the unthinkable happened. the high performance biplane started corkscrewing dot ground. the pilot, unable to get out. >> totally out of control. >> reporter: and then -- >> ladies and gentlemen -- >> holy cow. >> we have emergency personnel who are prepared for this. we have planned for this sort of an event. >> reporter: the audience, stunned. >> huge explosion that you can hear for quite a ways. and that was about it. you know there was no way he was going to survive that, unfortunately. it was a bad thing. >> reporter: the pilot, bryan jensen, seen here on this website, was killed. it was the second air show crash in weekend. in england, on saturday, a british air force jet crashed during an air show there. the kansas city aerial mishap was one of many air show crashes in the u.s. in 2007, this tragic accident, a blue angels jet hitting homes in south carolina.
7:08 am
grim evidence that, as thrilling as these shows can be, they can also be very dangerous. and jensen was a very experienced pipit. he had been flying aerobatics for 15 years. also flew commercial planes for major airlines. >> we're all familiar with service dogs helping the blind. but how about one helping the disabled to surf. ricochet teaches people how to hang ten. her owner says she stabilizes the board, helping the surfers keep their balancece that's great. i'd like to try that someday. >> apparently, she was initially trained as a guide dog but was no good, because she was chasing birds. that is incredible. >> from surfing dogs to volleyball playing dogs to dog meteorologist. i'm just kidding. it's time for the weather and meteorologist paul deanno, who is very, very human from our seattle affiliate klmo. good morning, paul.
7:09 am
>> it is the dog days of summer, got to use the segue there. that means hurricane season is nearing its peak. we have a new named storm, irene barreling through the caribbean over the next couple of days. hurricane watches and warnings. through the dominican republic and puerto rico. here's what we know. it will rumble through the caribbean the next several days. it will likely be somewhere close to south florida by the end of this week, perhaps thursday or friday. that and severe weather. another severe outbreak for the northeast. including philadelphia, washington, and just west of boston and new york city.
7:10 am
and that is your forecast. back you to, bianna. >> thank you. texas governor rick perry spent much of the weekend campaigning in south carolina, a key primary state. but it seems the honeymoon is over just one week after he announced. one of his rivals is already coming out swinging at him. let's turn to abc senior white house correspondent jake tapper hosting abc's "this week." jake, you have an exclusive interview with former utah governor jon huntsman. you seem to bring out a side we haven't seen yet. >> huntsman on the hunt. he had some very sharp words specifically about rick perry. when i asked him about rick perry's comments in which he expressed skepticism about evolution and the science behind climate change. >> i think this is a serious problem. the minute the republican party becomes the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. we lose a whole lot of people who would otherwise allow us to wiwithe election in 2012.
7:11 am
>> this is one of the points governor huntsman is trying to make. when candidates on the fringes, which is how he referred to rick perry, get the nomination, the re-election of president obama is almost assured. so he is very aggressive in this interview. i know you'll stay tuned to watch it. >> we definitely will. huntsman along with the other republican candidates seem to be focusing on perry. not so much romney, who, for all intents and purposes, was the front-runner. is there a sense perry is marginalizing romney at this point? >> i think right now the field is very, very wide open according to a recent poll i saw. only about 10% of republican electorate is satisfied with the candidates in the race, and has picked their candidate to support. so it's completely wide open. perry is considered a front-runner, because of his past fund-raising prowess, and it's not so much what he's done as a candidate, as what the
7:12 am
intelligentsia and chattering class think he will be able to do. i think there's two, three front-runners, including romney, perry and maybe michele bachmann. >> it is getting heated. thanks so much. be sure to join jake later on "this week" for more on the interview with jon huntsman and top obama campaign adviser david axelrod. dan. >> going to be a good show. now to an extraordinary, personal and public confrontation that erupted in the middle of a search for susan powell. the mother from utah missing for nearly two years now. this weekend when police were chasing down a new lead in the nevada desert, several family members, a few states away in washington, were clashing in front of cameras. here's abc's clayton sandell. >> reporter: with still no sign of susan powell after a mysterious new search in the nevada desert -- >> i want to get my daughter's picture out there. i want help finding my daughter. >> reporter: her father, chuck
7:13 am
cox, was passing out fliers when he was confronted by steve powell, the father of josh powell, susan's husband. >> how is your coming here helping to find susan? >> it isn't helping. how is your standing at our neighborhood market helping to find susan, chuck? people see the sign -- >> reporter: this open hostility is nothing new. >> they've been just bullying us from the beginning of this case. >> reporter: josh claims he left his wife at their utah home after midnight in december 2009, taking the couple's two young sons camping. susan was never seen again. skeptical investigators called josh a person of interest but have never charged him. josh and his family believe susan was leading a double life, that she may have run away to brazil with another man. josh says he's being unfairly demonized. >> there are a lot of people who have done a lot of attacks against our family. >> reporter: the bitterness erupted as police spent two days
7:14 am
chasing a tip near ely, nevada, combing for clues among rocky hillsides and abandoned mines. they came up empty. >> chuck is a liar. >> reporter: leaving only fresh venom between two families who blame each other. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news. >> that tension is palpable. all right. our thanks to clayton sandell. this next story sounds like a plot from a tv crime show. a murder case in phoenix is causing confusion because the suspect's identical twin brother was also at the scene of the killing. so which one of them pulled the trigger? abc's dan kloeffler has more on this very complicated who done it. >> reporter: it was a night club shootout that left one person dead. 19-year-old xavier brooks. witnesses identified this man as the shooter. or was it this man? identical twin brothers nearly impossible to tell apart, both at the scene. eyewitness accounts led police
7:15 am
to arrest this brother, orlando nembhard. but after months in jail and conflicting stories about who pulled the trigger, police questioned whether they had the right brother. bail was reduced, sparking anger from the victim's father. >> having a twin brother volved that was at the incident or at the location on the night of the incident, probably complicated things as well. >> reporter: charges have been dropped and now this 19-year-old may be headed ho to face the brother, his indistinguishable double, who may take his place in jail. orlando's attorney spoke out to our affiliate abc-15 about his client's potential mix-up. >> we knew it was a case of mistaken identity. the case could be refiled again at some point in the future when justice is done and someone is prosecuted. it needs to be the right person, the person responsible for the crime. reporter: according to the victim's girlfriend, police grabbed the wrong twin. in court documents, she said brandon, at a church function,
7:16 am
fessed up to the murder. but without any new charges and orlando about to walk free, the victim's family wants this mirror image madness to be settled between the brothers. >> they need to put them in the room and the let them battle it out. who is going to do the time? because everybody knows it is one or the other. >> now, orlando's attorney doesn't know when his client will be released. despite the charges being dropped, orlando is being held on a probation violation in a separate charge. >> what a difficult situation for the family. a murder involved. dan, thank you very much. the stock market was down 4% ey. just last week. gold continues to soar. it is now so valuable, police have a warning for anybody who wears gold. here's abc's abbie boudreau. >> reporter: police call it a smash and grab. thieves here smashed the glass case, then grab all of the gold they can. >> it's scary. >> reporter: with so many burglaries during the past few months, women are even afraid to
7:17 am
wear their gold jewelry. >> leave all the jewelry at home. >> reporter: with the price of gold skyrocketing, police say criminals are trying to profit too. >> i think they see the dollar sign and i think they're going for it, willing to take a lot more chance than they used to. >> reporter: the price of gold is $1800 an ounce. that means one gram is worth about $40. a kilogram, $40,000. and criminals are well aware. >> you're walking with your family, you know, they run away. >> right off your neck. >> reporter: this man stands guard outside his los angeles jewelry store. you have to keep your eye out -- he's been robbed twice in six months. both times by people posing as customers. >> i show them, they wear it, and suddenly they run. >> imagine armed men running in, smashing and it's over in a matter of seconds but it's still terrifying. >> reporter: in this surveillance video, burglars
7:18 am
hold an employee at gun point and stuff all of the gold in a backpack. and simply walk away. >> at the end of the day they melt away the evidence. >> exactly. right away. >> reporter: he says he fears for his safety, but has no plan to abandon his post. a one-man security team, guarding his gold. for "good morning americic" abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> people really think twice about wearing valuable jewelry. now a story you can really sink your teeth into. a couple of well-known tv foodies are feuding. here's abc's rob nelson with their story. >> reporter: in this corner anthononbourdain, the outspoken new york chef whose commentary have as much life as his food. and in the opposing corner, paula deen, the georgia peach, the queen of southern cuisine. these two culinary stars have taken a break to stuffing their mouths to spit out a little
7:19 am
trash talk. bourdain sliced and diced deen, in a recent interview to "tv guide," saying she's is the worst, most-dangerous person to america. she revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she's proud of the fact her food is bleeping bad for you. plus her food sucks. deen fired back with a mix of sweet and spice. >> i don't know if it was a publicity thing, or if somebody had just peed in his bowl of cereal that morning and he was mad. >> reporter: deen, one of the food network's biggest stars, said she was shocked by the verbal grilling, and admits she never even met bourdain, or cooked for the acid-tongued chef. who she said needs to get a life. >> come to my house, i'll cook you a meal, if you still feel that way about me, so be it. >> reporter: bourdain took his knives out against other food network stars, rachael ray,
7:20 am
sandra lee, and guy fieri but saved the slams for deen. he lowered the heat on twitter, admitting she's not the worst person in america, but the most destructive influence on the food network. with tensions still simmering, bourdain to leave the ring and save all this heat for the oven. for "good morning america," rob nelson, abc news, new york. >> ouch. dan, you're a foodie, are you taking sides here? >> i like to eat. i don't know if i know much about it. i wouldn't be able to take sides. >> food should unite people. maybe that's what t ll happen. maybe he'll take her up on her offer. >> somehow i doubt that. coming up on "gma," abc news learned more details about the case of a missing woman in aruba. the new witness poking holes in the story of the man who is the prime suspect. also, we have exclusive video of this man who was at the center of the case. plus the glitz and glam of kim kardashian's lavish, star-studded wedding. we'll take you behind the scenes of last night's affair. and baby tigers, my up-close encounter with three

7:32 am
take a look at this exclusive abc news video in which suspect gary giordano is seen in shackles without the usual hairpiece. he was on his way to another round of questioning by aruban authorities desperate to find his missing travel companion, robyn gardner. giordano had told police he and gardner had gone snorkeling the day she disappeared. but abc news has learned that a new witness disputes those claims. the witness said he was s shing on the same beach the same day. he saw the two take a walk around the reef at 4:00 p.m. but they never went in the water. a short time later they drove away and he never saw either of them again. >> if this witness ends up being accurate and correct as to locations of both mr. giordano and miss gardner, it's yet another piece of evidence that is inconsistent with his story. >> reporter: this is just the latest disturbing detail to emerge. last week abc news learned that investigators were looking into
7:33 am
a life insurance policy taken out on gardner which named giordano as the beneficiary. >> we're investigating -- there is relevance to the investigation. >> reporter: now abc news confirmed earlier reports that giordano tried to collect on that life insurancncjust two days after the maryland woman seemingly vanished. >> no one is saying she's dead at that point. obviously he's basically saying she's dead. how does he know that? well, perhaps he knows, because he was involved. >> reporter: the search for gardner will resume in aruba tomorrow. and as circumstantial evidence mounts, we should mention her body would not have to be found for giordano to be charged and right now can be held up to 60 days. >> 60 days. all right, t.j. thank you, we appreciate it. >> you bet. time to check on the other headlines this morning and for that, ron claiborne is back in the seat. >> good morning, everyone. dan, bianna, good morning, everyone. in the news, libyan rebels say
