7:02 am
jackson's doctor. there was damaging testimony from the star witness for the prosecution. he pinned it straight on conrad murray. also, we're going to show you a disturbing picture that proves jackson could not have overdosed himself. >> when you see that picture, it's hard to believe. and the first member of the madoff family to break her silence. stephanie madoff mack, his daughter-in-law. what she says about bernie, why his son, her husband, took his own life. the candid conversation with chris cuomo ahead. let's get to details on the death of moammar gadhafi. more videos of the scene coming in overnight. we warn you, they are graphic. jeffrey kofman is on the libyan border right now. and he joins us this morning. good morning, jeffrey. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is a libya for the first time in 42 years does not have to live in fear of moammar gadhafi. he is gone for good. and few, if any, are mourning his passing. overnight, the body of the
7:03 am
dictator was placed on the ground for all in the city of misrata to see for themselves. expected that he would be buried today, in accordance with muslim tradition. but that funeral may be delayed. we're seeing images of the final moments before his death. in this video just released, there he is, crowds surrounding him. the last moments of his life show him wounded and begging for mercy. he struggles, stumbles and shouts, as he fights against the enraged rebels. he says over and over, an arabic expression that means, this is a sin for you, according to abc translators. it usually used as a plea of vulnerability. moammar gadhafi who showed no mercy in his own life begs for mercy as his was coming to an end. it began hours earlier in sirte. gadhafi's home town when rebels
7:04 am
started what they hoped would be the last offensive against the last gadhafi holdout. then, an american drone, alerts nato they saw saw a convoy of 80 cars leaving sirte. an air strike took out two of the vehicles. when rebels pore in, they tell the bbc's gabrielle gatehouse, they discovered him in this drainage pipe. >> it was here before 12:00 this afternoon. they pulled him out. and one fighter told me that moammar gadhafi said to him, what did i do to you? >> we catch him there. and we shot him. >> reporter: the fatal shot, reportedly fired by this one, brandishing gadhafi's gold gun. rebels propped him on the car for minutes, apparently parading
7:05 am
him on the streets. we want him alive, one man was heard saying, before gadhafi was dragged off towards an ambulance. but gadhafi died in the ambulance. and the doctor who accompanied the body in the ambulance during the 120-mile drive to misrata, said that gadhafi died from bullet wounds. to the head and chest. for the last seven months, rebel leaders said they would not consider this revolution over until all gadhafi holdouts were vanquished and gadhafi was caught dead or alive. now, that's happened. tomorrow, libya celebrates liberation day. robin? not long before he went into hiding, gadhafi told our christiane amanpour, said he would never leave libya. in the end, he did not, dying not far from where he was born in the country he ruled his entire adult life. and christiane, host of "this week ,"is with us now. difficult to see, with that graphic video like that. were you surprised that he was able to hide out as long as he did? and that he went out like that? >> not really because he said he wasn't going to leave. and he was in sirte. and some people thought he might be.
7:06 am
but others thought he might be in the desert. one of his henchman interviewed as he was captured said he went there as the rebels took tripoli in august, he went to sirte. and stayed in various apartments of his friends and loyalists there. this man said he was anxious but he wasn't afraid. and in that video you can see, he's not struggling. he's wiping the blood. he's trying to say, don't kill me, but he's not fighting. >> no, he's not. the burial was, at first, because of islamic custom, going to be today. now, they're delaying it. what do you make of that? >> they say they can't find a location. but i think particularly with all of these videos and showing him out there. people have to know that he's dead. all over libya they have to know that he's dead. somebody explained to me, he has penetrated every corner of every libyan's life for the last four decades. and unless they see for themselves that he's gone, they won't believe it. i think that's partly trying to find the right place and the right circumstances for a burial, that won't be disturbed like that. >> as we see here.
7:07 am
you talked to his son, saif, not too long ago. a lot of uncertainty where he is. he is considered the heir apparent. one of his sons was killed. the national security adviser. saif, we don't really know. there are reports he was captured, or injured, or even killed. some say he may have been wounded. he may be captured. we still don't know. the other son i interviewed is in niger, in africa, neighboring. and he's said to be in shock. he's under house arrest in a hotel. >> i know you will have much more to talk object on sunday on "this week." >> exactly. we're going to go right into this. what it means for the u.s. in that part of the world now. >> people want to know that. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. now, the latest in the bizarre and haunting story of the exotic animals in ohio. "gma" has exclusively obtained these images showing terry thompson with some of his wild pets. and we also learned that he was
7:08 am
deep in debt. ohhing hundreds of thousands of dollars to the irs and the county. david kerley has been tracking the latest from ohio. >> reporter: abc news has obtained these exclusive pictures of terry thompson on his farm with some of the wild animals he kept. a lion. even this camel. here, trading kisses with a bear. >> you silly thing you. all of this from two years ago. and this morning, the majority of these animals are dead, after terry thompson released them and then killed himself. these are the only survivors. three leopards, a grizzly and two macaques. just hours after the columbus zoo staff transported the animals from the farm where 50 others, including 18 bengal tigers and 17 lions were killed by police, marian thompson came to the zoo. what did she want? >> this is a person who is very bonded to the animals. she wanted to see them. make sure they were doing okay. and she misses them. >> reporter: in fact, thompson,
7:09 am
who shielded herself from reporters, said the animals are her children. and revealed to zoo officials a very close bond with the macaque. >> she is bonded to the primate. and she says the female primate sleeps with her in bed. >> reporter: just a day ago, the dead animal, the conditions they were kept in and he can't forget. seeing that sight, will it haunt you? >> oh, yeah. it was bad. it was -- i've been in the zoo business for 22 years. and before that, i grew up on a farm. so, i've been around animals my whole life. i've never seen that. i don't ever want to see that again. that was bad. >> reporter: zoo officials say they will continue to care for the animals and leave it to the sheriff's department where they end up. whether they're back at the home, another facility, or stay here at the zoo. george? >> that's such a strange story. >> it really is, george. we have now, an abc news exclusive.
7:10 am
brian ross has been investigating a car company that received big government funding to make very expensive electric cars of the future. and put thousands of americans to work building them. but so far, those cars are being made overseas. brian ross, you investigated. what's going on here, brian? >> reporter: good morning, robin. the obama administration has used taxpayer money to place what is essentially a billion-dollar bet on electric cars. and this morning, we have a first look at all of them. a car for its sleek design and energy efficiency, is also raising questions about whether it could be another taxpayer boondoggle. it's called the karma. it's the result of a $170 million federal loan. it's made by fisker. the creation of a famed european auto designer who took abc news for a test drive in one of the first half electric half gas vehicles to come off the line. >> you hear a little of the noise. >> reporter: priced at $97,000, it's all luxury.
7:11 am
so quiet, that artificial engine noise is pumped through speakers so pedestrians can hear it coming. fisker got a federal loan two years ago of more than $500 million. but vice president joseph biden saying the company would employ auto workers in his home state of delaware. >> this is seed money that will return back to the american consumer in billions and billions and billions of dollars in good, new jobs. >> reporter: and so far, the u.s. money has helped to create some 500 auto assembly factory jobs. but they're not in the united states. rather here, at this plant in finland. where u.s. taxpayer money is being spent only on american design and parts. fisker said, he decided, with government approval, to assemble his fancy car in finland because no u.s. facility, he says, would do it. even with so many american auto workers laid off. >> manufacturing in inland. that's correct. >> reporter: you think that's
7:12 am
a good use of u.s. taxpayer money? >> yeah. >> reporter: fisker says his plan is to eventually produce a cheaper, compact version of the car at the plant in delaware, where he says will be thousands of jobs. but the company has had delays and won't start production here until at least next year. should taxpayers worry about that money? the $500 million-plus guaranteed? >> no. i don't think you need to worry about it. >> reporter: the first car was delivered to leonardo dicaprio. and as more cars are shipped from finland, americans will appreciate what he's created. the department of energy said it knew the carsñy/ñ would be assembled in finland, that's why they couldn't have been made here in the u.s. if fisker is successful, it will mean thousands of jobs in this country. there's lots of questions about this. we'll have more of our investigation, conducting by the center for public integrity,
7:13 am
tonight on "nightline". >> there's so many questions. and people want some answers. now, to the michael jackson manslaughter trial. the prosecution will wrap up its case later today, with their star witness pinning the blame for jackson's death squarely on conrad murray. he called murray's alibi a crazy scenario. abc's jim avila is on the case for us in los angeles. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. the prosecution ending its case with a stinging rebuke of one of the key defense premises. that michael jackson somehow killed himself. the prosecution saying his medical condition made that impossible. it's the medical condition that's vividly illustrated in a shocking photo obtained by abc news. and we warn you, it is graphic. it's an abc news exclusive. a picture taken of michael jackson by business colleagues in 2003, that visibly demonstrates the reaction jackson had to multiple needle punctures, making it difficult for doctors to find a vein. a problem the prosecution star witness was testifying about, when blasting the defense
7:14 am
contention that jackson injected the fatal dose of propofol himself. >> michael jackson did not have good veins. so, the possibility of a self-injection seems extremely unlikely. >> reporter: an obviously angry dr. conrad murray sat and listened to the prosecution's star expert witness for the third-straight court day. a relentless attack, apparently designed to prove that conrad murray lied to police during this audiotaped interview about how much propofol he gave the sleep-deprived singer. >> how much did you administer initially? >> 25 milligrams. >> reporter: dr. steven shafer, who wrote the dosage book on propofol, told the jury michael jackson had too much of the anesthetic he called milk in his system at autopsy for dr. murray to have been telling the truth. shafer set out to prove that instead of one small injection jackson died because conrad murray jerry-rigged an uncontrolled, unmonitored home delivery i.v., to drip propofol
7:15 am
into jackson's body. inserting the open anesthetic bottle into an empty saline bag. and shafer finally finished, emphasizing one of the prosecution themes. that even if the jury believes the defense that it was michael jackson who desperately grabbed and injected propofol into his own body conrad murray is still at fault. >> he is the physician who brought propofol into the room. started it intravenous and provided access to propofol, to a patient who may be developing a dependency on sedatives. and he has been entrusted by michael jackson to look out for his safety every night. he's responsible for every drop of propofol in that room. >> reporter: the defense will cross-examine dr. shafer today. and is expected to begin its case on monday. george. >> thank you, jim.
7:16 am
and now, to josh elliott and stories developing right now. >> good morning, all of you. we're going to begin with results on the largest study ever on cell phones and cancer. the extensive study actually found no link. the study covered some 350,000 people over 17 years and found that people who use cell phones have the same rates of cancer as those who do not. experts say the risk still cannot be ruled out. this morning, we are getting surprising, new insight into the life of steve jobs. famously private, he revealed personal secrets in the new book book, including a decision that would ultimately cause him his life. he had access to the best medical treatments. the best surgeons in the world. but when steve jobs was diagnosed with deadly pancreatic cancer he reportedly delayed the surgery that could have saved his life, calling it too invasive. instead, he tried alternative therapies, and later said he regret thad decision. one of the stunning revelations
7:17 am
in the steve jobs biography. walter isaacson, who conducted more than 40 interviews for the book, some right before his death, said no subject was off-limits. in his early days, jobs reported that he was often bullied in school. he stopped going to church at age 13, after he saw a photo of a starving child on "life" magazine. leading him to later studies and but dismany. he dabbled in lsd and never wanted to go to college. jobs experimented with various diets. and says he was, in fact, on one of his fruitarian diets when he decided to name his company apple. he had just come back from an apple farm and thought the name sounded fun, spirited and not intimidating. apple's first president was also interviewed for the book. he says one of the first projects was, in fact, to try to get jobs to bathe, which he says didn't always work. we'll have much more from the book on monday's "good morning america," when george interviews walter isaacson in his first live interview.
7:18 am
very much looking forward to that. meanwhile, in sports, the world series does go on. the texas rangers coming from behind in the ninth inning last ]q8 night to tie the series with the st. louis cardinals at 1-1. they were down 1-0, heading into the final frame. but they plated two. and so, they head back to texas tied at 1-1. game three, saturday night in arlington. finally, the end of the world part two. the 90-year-old california preacher who first predicted the world would end on may 21st. now, says no, the rapture will take place today. he said there was an issue with the math. of course, it was supposed to be on may 22nd. >> it's saturday in new zealand. call them up. if they're there, we're all okay. >> okay. i've got a couple hours, at least. >> that's why you were asking earlier, is it saturday somewhere on the globe? hey, sam. good to have you back here. >> thank you. i hate this. i haven't made any plans. the last-minute notice of the world ending today. i'm just not ready. josh, robin, george. good morning, everybody.

two eyewitnesss that may have been the last to see baby lisa after she disappeared from her crib. abc's linsey davis has that for us from kansas city. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. baby lisa's parents have said all along that someone abducted their daughter from their house. now, abc news has talked exclusively with people who say what they witnessed the night of her disappearance, they have reason to believe them. why the latest focus of police appears to be on baby lisa's house, with extensive searches of the yard and items in the home, abc news has learned of at least three eyewitnesses in two locations who say they believe police need to expand their search. they're convinced they saw a baby matching baby lisa's description being carried outside the house the night she went missing. are you pretty convinced that it was the person? the baby? >> yeah. i am. >> reporter: mike thompson says he was on his way home from work, around 4:00 a.m. october 4th, when he saw a man in a
7:32 am
t-shirt, carrying a baby in a diaper at this intersection. >> 4:00 in the morning, 45 degrees. the baby doesn't have a blanket, a coat, nothing. and this guy was walking down the street. i thought it was kind of weird. >> reporter: thompson said he thought it was so strange he considered offering them a ride. but couldn't because he was on his motorcycle. he later reported what he saw to police. what did he look like if you were going to try to give a description? >> about 5'7", 5'8", 140, 150 pounds. kind of late 30s, early 40s. >> reporter: but it's not just mike thompson. >> it was shocking because i couldn't imagine anybody outside walking with their baby in the cold like that, with no clothes on. >> reporter: this woman and her husband both say they saw the same thing hours earlier. a man dressed in similar clothes, also carrying a baby. they thought the sight was so unusual, they reported it to police that morning. >> we seen her, the little arm. and then, the leg was right here. so, the parts of the body we
7:33 am
seen, it didn't look like the baby had on any clothes at all. just a diaper. >> reporter: while police initially ruled out reports of a man carrying a baby, the female eyewitness now says police have interviewed her four times. and the accounts do at least seem plausible. this is the house where baby lisa was last seen. right down the street, three houses away, is where the husband and wife reported seeing that man in the t-shirt carrying a baby at 12:15 a.m. hours after lisa's mother, deborah bradley, says she last saw her baby. then, just after 4:00 a.m., three miles away from baby lisa's house, thompson says he saw the same thing. and this baby seemed to be about the same age? >> looked like it to me. yeah. same age. same size. >> reporter: the accounts in both locations are similar. and it's also worth noting that they all describe the man as very calm. their hope, now, is their
7:34 am
account will help police find baby lisa. george. >> okay, linsey. thanks. let's bring in our legal analyst, dan abrams. this is pretty compelling stuff. to see a man with a baby at midnight and 4:00 a.m. >> let's start with the fact that eyewitness testimony tends to be notoriously unreliable. that's number one. and number two, deborah bradley says that the baby was wearing clothes. and this is all accounts of a baby with just a diaper on. with that said the consistency of these two accounts is interesting. the fact that there is a man in this neighborhood, oddly and in a seemingly out of place way, walking with a baby, is interesting. is very interesting. >> middle of the night. >> that's right. but police also have investigated this. they haven't ruled it out. it's an interesting development. it's an important development. but i don't think we can necessarily say -- >> the reports of this handyman is one of the first things they looked into. >> that's right. i assure you, when we hear in the report that the woman's been interviewed four times, the authorities would say, we have been looking into this.
7:35 am
again and again and again. and so far, they're not drawing any conclusions. >> interesting right at the top. why are eyewitness accounts notoriously unreliable? >> because people tend to have great confidence in what they thought they saw. and it turns out, very often, that they didn't see what they said they saw. in fact, around the country right now, law enforcement organizations are evaluating what to do about the problem of eyewitness testimony because it sounds -- when we talk in a trial, it's an eyewitness? yes.ikz an eyewitness testified to "x," "y" and "z." when you look at how much eyewitness testimony ought to matter, it ought to not matter that much because it tends to be inaccurate in a lot of cases. >> this has been a pretty remarkable week in this case. it started out with the parents speaking out to you and others at the beginning of the week. then, they clam up, stop talking to police. police get a search warrant and go through the house. and now, eyewitnesses come out. where does the investigation go now as we head into a fourth
7:36 am
week? >> the investigation ought to go in two ways. it ought to go both towards the parents and away from the parents. and that's the key. the police ought to be looking at everything. and if they're not, then there's a problem. meaning, if they're not continuing to look at the possibility of the parents, that's a problem. if they're not continuing to look at the possibility that this was an abduction, that's a problem. i think that the authorities simply don't know what to make of this. i think that they have some level of distrust for the parents. and i think that's leading them to focus on the parents. but when you get down there and you talk to people, there's still a lot of questions about what happened here. >> there sure are. dan abrams, thanks very much. >> okay, george. >> guys, another case, an update on the dramatic millionaire murder trial we followed. bob ward, convicted of killing his wife, speaking out for the first time from his prison cell about what he says really happened. abc's matt gutman has the latest. >> reporter: these are the three faces of convicted murderer and
7:37 am
former millionaire developer, bob ward. the jokester, dancing a gig in a jailhouse conversation with his daughter. the angry defendant. the sensational trial this summer in orlando. and now, in an exclusive interview with news 13 orlando, he intimates he was the victim and wants a new trial. >> she was right behind me, holding a gun. i turned around. and it was a split-second. i'm talking about a blink of an eye, that i had to grab a gun and stop i don't know what from happening. >> reporter: the prosecution alleged the 64-year-old shot his wife square in the face. and he was convicted last month of second-degree murder. in the minutes after the shooting, he seems to say the same in this 911 call. >> i just shot my wife. >> reporter: but later that same night, once in custody, he changes his story. >> diane killed herself tonight. >> reporter: now, this new twist. >> do you think your wife was trying to kill you? >> i don't know what she was thinking.
7:38 am
all i knew was she had a gun. and i had to get it out of her hand. >> reporter: in the interview, he said his wife took a number of prescription pills. and drank regularly and heavily. sometimes she would snap, he said. the latest version that his wife may have wanted to kill him, is his third version of what happened that one night back in 2009. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news. >> you hear all those versions. but to hear the 911 call, and hear his voice say, i just shot my wife. try to get past that. let's get back, now, to sam. you have a forecast -- long-range forecast. >> i don't necessarily believe in all these. but this is the government's long-range forecast. their weather team has put out using the la nina principal of q what we're in right now. that it is drier in the south. or below normal. that's not good news for places like texas and florida. and it becomes a bit above normal with moisture in the northwest and right around the great lakes. as far as temperatures go, that
7:39 am
means it will be colder in these areas. a snowy winter for chicago, into minnesota, in the great northwest, as well. and that it is not -- it is not snowy, it is warm and dry all the way through the deep south. here's where it is warmer today. it's been warm in the west for a while. that air moves east. we get that storm pattern out of the way. going up in temperatures. 60 in new york city is where we think we're going over the weekend. 59 today in new york. 6 in atlanta. a very chilly start in the deep south. but it warms up nicely. @j >> all of your friday weather was brought to you by royal caribbean international. robin? george? >> have we said happy friday yet? >> i don't think we've said it yet. happy friday. >> say it again. >> happy friday. coming up, lindsay lohan in

8:44 am
>> since kyle's a firefighter, we have a plan for every emergency you might experience. when the siren goes off, run to the closet. >> reporter: 162 people died in joplin. and even five months later, the aftermath is still an everyday part of life. but the people of joplin refuse to let the ef-5 tornado define their futures. and that's what's inspired the "extreme makeover" team to come to joplin. we have the exclusive sneak peek of ty and the gang door-knocking some of the other chosen families. there are seven homes to build and only seven days to do it. >> how do you build a house in seven days? >> as quickly as possible and right. >> reporter: to pull off something like this you need 10,000 volunteers. >> had to be a part of it. >> awe-inspiring. >> reporter: 18 builders. and a devoted design team. >> meeting a lot of amazing
8:45 am
people. the stories are riveting. but more importantly, it's about getting joplin back on its feet. >> reporter: the seven houses are being constructed as one brand-new neighborhood. this is what the area looked like before. and this is what it looks like now, just three days into the "extreme makeover." this house will be the howards'. you can already see the bedrooms taking shape. >> we have caleb and corbin's room. they love jumping and climbing this and that. we want to make sure they do that over here. >> reporter: and each house in this neighborhood will have one unique and very important feature. >> this is going to be a shelter from the storm. it's going to be a storm shelter. >> reporter: tune in next week when we head back to joplin when we hear a whole town cry out those three, magic words. >> move that bus. >> nothing else to say. they are miracle workers. now, when we talked to the howards and the family the one thing they wanted out of this situation is to make sure that their homes were safer. and so they're installing these kevlar tornado shelters that can
8:46 am
withstand winds of more than 200 miles per hour. we're going to talk more about that next week when we do the big move that bus for those homes. >> we cannot -- i cannot get over how quickly they are building those homes. >> incredible. >> also, you have to watch "extreme makeover: home edition" new time, new night. it's on tonight, friday night. when we come back, emeril's got some pies for us. dry mouth is uncomfortable. it can also lead to serious dental problems.
