7:02 am
new york, it will feel like 107 and 111 in new york. 107 in indy. 108 in washington, d.c. and some record high temperatures, the actual temperature in d.c. will be 103. this is the small zone, cleveland to boston to washington, where those thunderstorms this afternoon will cool things down. but the rest of the country stays unbearably cool. we'll talk about that when we get to everybody's weather. robin, george. syrian defense minister killed in a suicide blast, the details are just coming in right now. we want to go our global affairs anchor, christiane amanpour. she joins us from jerusalem this morning. good morning, christiane. what we know, now, the defense minister, the president assad's brother-in-law, both killed. this was a strike right at the heart of the syrian power structure. >> reporter: george, it absolutely is. it's unprecedented. we've seen defections and high level generals defect but not seen such high level officials
7:03 am
right at the heart, as you say, of defense and intelligence and security structure, attacked in this brazen and bold way and such high level officials killed. the defense minister, and very important officials, given they're pitted against this growing rebellion, and of course, president assad is calling these people terrorists, so has an army statesman said, and they vow to crack down. this is very close to the presidential palace, very close on the heals of major fighting, unprecedented levels of fighting in damascus. this is a turning point, george. >> that was going to be my question. president assad started to lose his hold on the countryside, but this is the capital. >> reporter: exactly. president assad was able to tell the people this is a bunch of rebels, a bunch of terrorists outside in the countryside but now it's come to the capital, not just to the capital but to
7:04 am
his defense ministry. his own brother-in-law has been killed and this is very close to the presidential palace. you can imagine this is being watched very closely in jerusalem and israel. where the general consensus in israel and in the united states and around u.s. allies, saying it would be better for assad to go. >> christiane, thanks very much. let's go to josh elliott with the rest of the headlines. good morning to you and all of you, we're getting word that actress halle berry has been released from an l.a. hospital. we learned she fell on the set of her movie much hitting her head on the con great but we're told the injury is only minor. now breaking new, the man called the most-wanted nazi was taken into custody. 97-year-old laszlo csatary, can accused of killing over 16,000 jews in nazi death camps in
7:05 am
world war ii. and a developing story in baghdad. a single bomb set or a change reaction of explosions. destroying 22 nato trucks, injured two drivers. taliban is claiming responsibility. also this morning, president obama is announcing a plan to attract new math and science teachers and help make the u.s. more competitive in the fields. he wants to spend some $1 billion to create an elite group of teachers who would get an extra $20,000 per year. congress has to okay the money and that's far from a done deal and a brazen holdup in florida didn't exactly go off as planned, again, thanks to one gun-toting senior citizen. look at the surveillance video two armed robbers, storming an internet cafe. watch the back of your screen. 71-year-old samuel williams is not taking that anymore.
7:06 am
pulls his own gum. takes aim and would save the day. the suspects actually made a run for it. they were hit twice as they flee out the door. the suspects later arrested. we should point out, williams does have a gun license and is not expected to be charged. remarkable. >> and what a uniform. bermuda shorts and a golf cap. >> yeah, why not. >> okay, josh, thanks very much. now to that security breach, at an airport in utah, a murder suspect was able to steal and start an unlocked passenger jet. he didn't get away with it. jim avila highlights a real vulnerability in airport security. >> reporter: good morning, jim. . >> reporter: good morning, george. it's a serious safety issue that reveals a problem at parked jet liners all across the country. the damage extensive and dramatic. a delta connection jet sits on the tarmac at st. george, utah, its nose cone and left wing crashed by a desperate man. crashing the plane in an apparent attempt to escape
7:07 am
justice and exposing a weak link in airport security. >> he's a current skywest pilot. he'll know exactly how to get into the plane, activate the systems and take that plane off. >> reporter: in fact that's what licensed but suspended pilot for skywest airlines, brian hedglin may have tried to do. the 40-year-old jumped the security fence wearing gloves and throwing a rug over the barbed wire. at 1:00 in the morning, he boarded the unlocked jet, started it up and headed for the runway. but in his haste, he clipped the jetway, damaging the terminal. >> he put it in drive so to speak, his left wing on the aircraft clipped the jet bridge, probably making it inoperable. >> reporter: the pilot was on the run from colorado spring, prime suspect in the murder of his ex-girlfriend, christina
7:08 am
lopez cornejo. but when that failed, the jet engine still idling when police arrived. a personal tragedy and wake-up call on several security levels. >> commercial jets don't have keys to open the door. >> reporter: that's right. the jet was only protected by barbed wire fence and lone patrol car assigned to watch seven miles of perimeter. >> aviation security is a system and the system is only as strong as its weakest link. >> reporter: the fbi is investigating and so is the tsa. certainly there will be changes in security procedures across the country. george and robin. >> sure we can count on that. all right, jim. thank you. now to new details about kerry kennedy and that car crash that she was involved in last week. kennedy speaking out on tuesday, saying the collision was not caused by driving while impaired but doctors believe she had a seizure, stemming from an old brain injury. abc's david muir is back with the latest on all of this. good morning, david. >> lot of attention on this case.
7:09 am
kerry kennedy the daughter of robert kennedy, this morning after pleading not guilty, we hear her own explanation. saying it wasn't the ambien, but the seizure. >> i want to apologize to the driver of the truck who i apparently hit, and to all of those i endangered while driving my car last friday morning. >> reporter: her first words an apology to the truck drivers and the others on that highway. just days after police say she sideswiped a tractor trailer, and later found to have exited the highway, and slumped over the wheel. the truck driver also now talking, describing what he saw. >> i was worried about her hitting somebody else. and she also hit about five cars when she got off the exit. she had no control of the car. and she didn't even make an attempt to slow down or even stop. >> reporter: when police discovered kennedy, they said that her speech was slurred and she couldn't stand on one leg or walk and turn for them. her explanation at the time was a possible medical mix-up that she might have taken ambien the sleeping aid, instead of her
7:10 am
thyroid medication that morning. after pleading not guilty she broke her silence. saying doctors now believe it was something else. >> i remember, getting on the highway and then i have no memory until i was stopped at a traffic light and a police officer was at my car door. >> reporter: kennedy said that she underwent urine and blood tests which showed nothing. and an mri which she says, shows an area of the brain still damaged from a head injury some time ago. >> this coupled with an abnormal eeg, the lack of memory, the quick recovery, led my doctors to believe that this accident was caused not by a sleeping aid, but by a complex partial seizure. >> there's a whole list of things that could cause unconsciousness, impaired ability. a complex partial seizure is one of those possibilities. >> reporter: kennedy was ordered
7:11 am
to undergo screening for substance abuse. she was released on her own recognizance. though she was adamant that was never been the case. >> i have never had any history of drug or alcohol abuse. >> police are still waiting for the results of their own toxicology reports. the truck driver, after hearing kennedy apologize, telling the new york post it was heartwarming to hear. he would love to get together for coffee. we'll see if that happens. all right, david, thank you. for more "good morning america" legal analyst dan abrams is back with us. she really laid out a lot of details. >> wouldn't be amazing that a misdemeanor case would go to trial and they would have warring experts. medical experts on one side, talking about a seizure, and medical experts on the other side, talking about prescription drugs. it's almost hard to fathom, in the context of a misdemeanor like this, that that would happen, but based on what you're hearing her say, and based on what the authorities say, you never know. and in a high-profile case, the rules are different. meaning you might see something like this, a deal or dismissed when the world is watching,
7:12 am
everyone has to stand their ground. >> normally something like this wouldn't go to trial, but you're saying you think it will. >> when someone is charged with misdemeanor, you plead them down or whatever the case may be. but in this case, you may see it go to a trial and have warring experts. >> seizure as she claims, is that defense? >> absolutely. absolutely. it wouldn't be a crime if she had no warning and she had a medical episode. a single episode. that would not be a crime. if, on the other hand, she had taken some sort of prescription drugs, that you certainly shouldn't take before driving, totally different story. what's going to happen here, you have to think about everything that was seen by the witnesses and what she told the police at the time. that becomes really important. she said that she didn't remember. police and authorities say that's the key. >> all right, dan. as always, thank you. now to new hope of the millions of americans affected by obesity. the fda has approved the drug
7:13 am
qsymia. a prescription diet drug. the results have been dramatic in clinical trials. dr. richard besser is here to tell us about it. ho does this work and how effective is it? >> it contains two drugs already on the market. one is a stimulant which decreases your appetite. the other is antiseizure drug, which had as a side effect, weight loss. they lose about 10% of their weight. >> that's pretty significant. the fda had been worried in the past about possible side effects. they looked at this back in 2010, some of to possible side effects, confusion, memory loss, increased heart rate. and birth defects. but when the committee looked at it again this year, they said yes, there's side effects from the drug. but the side effects from obesity. heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, those are real and for the past decade there's been almost nothing to offer people aside from weight loss and surgery. >> about 30% of americans are
7:14 am
obese. bottom line, who should use this and whould shouldn't? >> e people who are either obese or overweight and have medical problems associated with that. high blood pressure or diabetes. it's definitely not recommended for pregnant women and very important point, a woman who wants to take this, needs to have a negative pregnancy test and they want to do pregnancy testing every month. the other thing is, you know, when it comes to heart disease, one of the components of this drug was in fen fen. the drug that came off the market because of heart problems. the company has to do long-term studies for heart health in order for this to go to market. >> thank you, richard besser. the latest in desperate search for those two missing little girls in iowa. five days of searching has turned up few leads about the cousins who vanished and where they could be now. abc's alex perez is evansdale with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities continue the process of draining this lake in hopes of finding any sign of the girls. we learned that blood hounds picked up their scent in this area. the parents, at this point,
7:15 am
believe someone abducted them. for misty and daniel morrissey, staying busy, helps them stay strong. desperately searching for their 10-year-old daughter, lyric cook, and her 8-year-old cousin, elizabeth collins. >> we've been in the woods, getting dirty, sweaty, scratched up. >> reporter: the girls vanished after leaving for a bike ride about noon on friday. they were reported missing just before 3:00. for the first time, we're hearing from someone who saw them during that short window of time. >> they came riding by on their bikes, said hi, and that's the last thing that, i heard from them. >> reporter: robert carpenter was watering his lawn when the girls rode by his home, just a few blocks away from meyers lake where their bikes were later recovered on a trail. >> what is it like to think you may have been one of the last people to see the girls? >> shocking, seeing them, and
7:16 am
then you don't get to see them again. >> reporter: the lack of solid police leads has many police in this tight-knit town hugging their children and frantic for answers. >> it's a mystery. like there's nothing -- we have nothing to go on. they're just gone. >> reporter: the agony isn't getting any easier for health collins, she remembers spending the morning with her daughter elizabeth just hours before that fateful bike ride. >> she like quickly popped out of her bed and quickly crawled in my bed. she said it's mommy and elizabeth time. >> reporter: memories like those and pictures of their sporty, happy little girl that keep them hopeful. >> i want to wake up to a dream of my daughter being there. >> reporter: authorities believe that this lake could be completely drained by late today possibly tomorrow, investigators say at this point, they still consider this a missing persons case. robin. >> thank you, alex, very much. back now to sam, boy the heat continues to be on. >> i know.
7:17 am
it will only break for a few people. good morning, again, everyone. 19 states have these heat warnings, watches and advisories out. let's just throw on the -- let's just throw on the -- let's just throw on -- there you go. the temperatures. you see 99 in indianapolis. kansas city, at 100. memphis, 96. raleigh, 100. what may be more important, though, that combination of heat and humidity, really, you'll have to work hard to cool yourself. it's going to feel like it's 100 to 105 in a lot of those locations. even if the temperatures are in the 90s. here's the big board and you can see the only cool spots are right around the great lakes and the extreme west coast from seattle well kind of into l.a. san diego. slightly cooler along the coastline and step into the heat and everybody's got it. today, those strong storms will be alive particularly in that mid-atlantic, northeast area. we'll watch those carefully on your abc stations.
7:18 am

little daddy/daughter time for tom and suri. first time together for the two. since his split from katie holmes. they're heading to suri's gymnastics in new york city yesterday. lot of pictures of the two. lot more coming up on "good morning america." also ahead, the latest on a bizarre murder for hire case. plastic surgeon accused of paying a hitman in silver dollars to kill another doctor, his rival. >> that's a strange one. how about some good news for sofia vergara, star of modern family, friend of "good morning america," we'll have the details ahead.
7:30 am
and get ready for the ride of your life, we have tickets to america's newest, tallest, fa faster and scariest roller coaster. we could not get josh back on the roller coaster. >> i have tickets available. let's get to that murder case out of texas. the kind of plot that you would expect from a soap opera. dan and nancy grace are ready to weigh in. the story is full of bizarre twists and turns. two prominent doctors. a mystery woman and a hitman. in the end, one doctor is dead and two people are under arrest. police said thomas michael dixon was so hung up on his ex-girlfriend he contacted her constantly, even after she began dating another man. >> someone has broken a window in the break and the doctor did not show up for work today. >> on july 11th, his landscaper
7:31 am
called police from outside his home. >> i need somebody to hurry! >> reporter: no one had heard from the respected chief pathologist. >> one of his co-workers into the house and said it wasn't good. >> reporter: he was found stabbed to death in his living room. >> nothing involved. but fda. >> reporter: dr. dixon a plastic surgeon is probably best known for his on-camera appearances. dr. dixon was arrested. police also arrested 51-year-old david shepherd. shepherd's roommate told police that it was an alleged murder for hire. his alleged for the million, three silver bars, worth $3,000 each, delivered by dr. dixon the ex.
7:32 am
>> this is all very surprising that he would be involved at this level. nothing we have been able to find so far in his background that this was going to happen. >> reporter: both men are now charged with murder. dr. dixon's bail was set at $10 million, while shepherd is still waiting to face a children. his children told abc, although there were many tears shed, there was also a sense of hope that my father's murder has been solved. what makes even heartbreaking for the murder doctor, their mother was also killed. nancy grace, host of hln nancy grace and dan abrams. nancy, let me begin with you, murder for $9,000 and silver bars. it sounds almost biblical.
7:33 am
>> fyi, george, there are i.d. numbers like vin numbers on silver bars, just in case you find yourself embroiled in a murder for hire, no use silver bars as a method of payment. it links right back to dr. dixon. aren't there enough women, beautiful women, in amarillo, why he was so fixated on one woman. the roommate for the murder of hire, shepherd, the shooter, goes to police, tells them everything that shepherd had been stalking sanjay the victim for weeks and then texts the doctor every move. they got a quite a trial. >> in all of these cases, people forget, there's no such thing as professional hitmen, you got to go to the guy next door who you happen to know, as a result, these cases fell apart based on
7:34 am
people talking and that's what allegedly happened here. you have this roommate, who the hit. man is talking to, what's the defense possibly in this case? in this particular case, you'll probably see the doctor point the finger at the hitman and say, yes, he may have been involved but it wasn't me. and the problem is going to be, as nancy points out, you got the silver bars, you got other links back to the doctor and that's going to be the key in this case. it's going to be the combination of the roommate's testimony and maybe most importantly, motive and any other pieces they're able to bring back to the doctor. >> anything that the defense can do, nancy? >> and dan -- well, yeah, i think dan's idea of these two, they should be tried together, since i expect this death penalty case, we're talking
7:35 am
about texas, people, police should have a fairly good understanding of the needle of him in this case. they should try these two together. let them stew together in the same pot. what they would do at the trial, that never looks on trial. the roommate is going to crack the case wide open. we still don't know the woman's name. she's going to make a dramatic court to detail him stalking her and i predict the death penalty and here we go, you know why? murder of hire is an aggravating circumstance. >> you're saying both for th-- both of them? >> sure. >> you'll have a big fight in this case to be tried together or separately. they want to be tried separately.
7:36 am
they both plea not guilty. >> if death penalty charges could conceivably go for a bargain in return for having the death penalty? >> in a case like this, you would ordinary try to cut the deal with the hitman as opposed to the person who plotted it out. deals are tough to come by. >> i don't think anybody should get a blue light special in this case, because it's a plot that went on for months and months. he was ejected. when she dumped him for another doctor it was just too much for him to take. you know what, pack that jury with women, they'll be out, 30 minutes and that includes a soft drink break. >> we'll not take any offense today, nancy, thanks very much. let's get the weather from sam. >> it seems like every day
