7:03 am
springs. abc's cecilia vega has the story. >> reporter: police say the call came in saturday at noon. the girl's 12-year-old brother says he found an intruder inside their home. when the man fled, the boy found his sister stabbed. the 12-year-old was able to give police only a vague description of the suspect. >> a white or hispanic male adult. the age was not clear. however the clothing described was blue jeans and a black or dark shirt. >> reporter: police say the brother is not a suspect at this time. >> we're continuing to talk to him. which would be normal because he was the last person with the child. >> reporter: police and csi teams scoured the crime scene. >> we collected some fingerprints and what we believe to be dna. >> reporter: an all-out manhunt is under way. in the rural county outside of sacramento. >> we're searching extensively.
7:04 am
it's a difficult area to search. >> there are a lot of empty homes and outbuildings. lot of huge rofk croppings where somebody can hide in. >> reporter: and this morning, still no sign of a suspect. for "good morning america," cecilia vega, abc news, los angeles. meanwhile, some brave churchgoers, including an off-duty firefighter, are being credited for stopping a man who went on a rampage during a catholic mass on sunday in albuquerque. the man armed with a knife and yelling fake preacher jumped across several pews, stabbing members of the choir. injuring four people, two critically. no official word on a motive as yet. a major milestone in lower manhattan. crews there will raise the final section of the spire atop the new world trade center. the first section was added late last year, not long after this picture was taken of crews hoisting the escalator to the 101st floor.
7:05 am
the tower will become the tallest building in the western hemisphere at a symbolic 1,776 feet tall. and there's a mystery in oregon this morning. how did that -- get there? police have no idea. the truck ended up lodged roughly ten feet in that tree. no one was inside. hospitals nearby have not reported any victims of a crash. a local rescue team tweeted -- and i quote, said tweet -- this is not something you see every day, end tweet. >> end tweet. >> that's as far as we got. i have no followup. >> you have to work on that. >> great job. we're going to turn now to the latest in the boston bombings investigation. that brand-new video we told you about, dzhokhar tsarnaev teasing his niece. we're hearing his voice for the first time. >> give me a kiss. >> okay.
7:06 am
>> no, give me a kiss. atta girl. now get out. >> no. >> abc's brian ross is here with more information on whether the bomber acted alone. good morning, brian. >> reporter: from the beginning, it was a plot hard to come the grips with. this morning, that continues to be the case. with the revelations that the fbi is still tracking what it calls persons of interest in russia and here in the united states. the younger tsarnaev brother said they never even tested the bombs before setting them off that day two weeks ago today. and many law enforcement officials and members of congress believe the two men, or at least the older one, had to have been well-trained in bombmaking during his six-month trip to russia last year. and may have had helpers here. >> there are still persons of interest in the united states that the fbi would like to have conversations with. the unknown is the little over six months in russia. clearly, that is where they went from the process of
7:07 am
radicalization to pro-violence. >> the older brother? >> the older brother, and to violence. >> reporter: the older brother, tamerlan, was in russia at a time when a chechen terror group there lost two key leaders about the same age. including a canadian citizen who william plotnikov, who was a professional boxer before becoming part of a movement. a few days before he was killed by russian forces in july of last year, tamerlan returned to boston from russia. the fbi continues to have great interest in the mother of the two accused bombers, zubeidat. she denies her and her family have any connection to terrorism. over the weekend, her phone calls were recorded by russian security forces while she allegedly discussed jihad with her son. overnight, the mystery man called misha emerged from his
7:08 am
home in rhode island and said he did not have anything to do with encouraging tamerlan. >> he said, i was not tsarnaev's teacher. i never taught him anything. if i had been his teacher, i would have certainly told him that doing something like this is very, very wrong and against the precepts of our religion. >> reporter: the reporter says misha said he has been interviewed by the fbi and called the fbi during the interview to make sure it was okay to talk to reporters. he's a person still of interest, but not that much interest apparently. >> so many questions. all right, george. we're going to move on to the latest on the investigation into the letters tainted with the poison ricin mailed to president obama and other high-level officials. a suspect is now in custody. big questions right now about whether a feud has fueled the entire case. abc's matt gutman is in miami, florida, with the latest.
7:09 am
good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. in just a couple of of hours, we might learn whether or not that big ricin scare was started by a small-town intrigue. this mystery plot pits a bipolar elvis impersonator against a karate instructor. later this morning, james everett dutschke is expected to appear before a judge. the president, a u.s., senator, and a local judge got envelopes with ricin. >> i wouldn't recognize ricin if i saw it. >> reporter: on wednesday, the 41-year-old former tae kwan do instructor denied involvement, even as investigators searched his home. his arrest comes day after the arrest of this man.
7:10 am
45-year-old elvis impersonator kevin curtis was charged, but the charges were dropped. >> overwhelming, to say the least. >> dutschke and curtis worked together in the past. the attorney believes dutschke used her client as a patsy. signing them with curtis' initials. >> it took a lot of planning. very diabolical. >> reporter: dutschke, meantime, is also facing two charges of child molestation. he pleaded not guilty to those earlier this month. now, his court hearing this morning, we might learn the mystery motive behind this act. dutschke's attorney is not commenting about the accusation. her client could face life in prison. robin? >> one bizarre twist after another. >> that is a stiff penalty. to the white house, where president obama is facing new calls for military action in syria, after releasing evidence last week that the assad regime has used chemical weapons.
7:11 am
abc's jon karl is tracking that from the white house. the white house is considering stepping up military involvement if the evidence is confirmed. >> reporter: that's right, george. the official line is that all options are on the table. but senior officials have made it clear that ground troops are not going to happen. they're looking at arming the rebels, targeted air strikes or a no-fly zone. i wouldn't expect to see any of these any time soon. the evidence needs to be corroborated. even once that happens this is a white house that is determined not to rush into any stepped-up military involvement. >> it could take several weeks. on a much lighter note, the white house correspondents' dinner over the weekend. the president is really honing his standup skills. take a look. >> i understand, second term, need a burst of new energy.
7:12 am
so, we borrowed one of michelle's tricks. i thought this looked pretty good. but, no bounce. i really do respect the press. i recognize that the press and i have different jobs to do. my job is to be president. your job is to keep me humble. frankly, i think i'm doing my job better. >> you know, the president seemed to be enjoying himself there. he's always been pretty good at this. i think he's gotten better, george. and with the series of news events we have been through over the last weeks, months, it's one of the rare chances that he's had to get up there and tell jokes. >> he did seem to enjoy it. he loves going after the press. thank you, jon. >> we'll have more on the correspondents' dinner later. right now, michael jackson's life and death are back center stage today. opening statements are set to start in the jackson family multibillion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit.
7:13 am
against the promoters of the singer's comeback concert, which never happened. abc's david wright has the details for us from los angeles. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this was the series of 50 concerts that never happened because the 50-year-old pop star dropped dead of acute propofol intoxication during the rehearsals. the family is now trying to blame the concert promoters. in a grim encore, his life and death will play out again in court. in a case starting this morning, it's expected to offer the most in-depth details yet of the superstar's final days. >> a lot of money at stake. what his life was worth from the point that he died forward, how much could he have made? >> reporter: the superstar's mother, kathryn jackson, and
7:14 am
others filed the case saying that concert promoter aeg live is ultimately responsible for his death. claiming they forced him to complete the tour despite red flags. >> who was conrad murray, the man who killed michael jackson who is in jail, who was he working for? >> reporter: aeg argues conrad murray was an independent contractor, hired by michael jackson, not them. but the jackson family insists the company should have vetted him thoroughly before agreeing to pay his $150,000 a month salary. the star-studded witness list is expected to include diana ross, quincy jones, prince, and jackson's ex-wives, lisa marie presley and debbie rowe. jackson's two older children, expected to take the stand as
7:15 am
well. >> that is going to be the most emotional, the most unpredictable moment of the trial. how do you cross-examine the children? >> reporter: the trial is expected to last several months. no cameras allowed in court. there's a lot more than just money. even billions of dollars at stake, also jackson's reputation, because we're expected to learn a lot more about his erratic behavior in the final days. robin. >> thank you. it would be difficult to see the kids on the stand. now, let's get the latest on what has been a wild weekend of weather across the south. tornadoes, massive hailstorms. sam, you have been tracking those for us. >> soaking rain. you know it's a tough rainstorm when your car is floating down the street. people saw that in houston over the weekend. eight inches of rain. look at that. enough water, knee-high in streets, eight inches in some homes. so, this is a lot of water. 150 water rescues in just a few hours. and then, as that began to move east over the weekend, that

7:18 am
>> reporter: this case raises a lot of questions. the young man doing everything he can to explain behavior ahead of time but still being denied access to a flight which he planned for two years. when 19-year-old michael doyle arrived at the airport for his flight to puerto rico, he was worried. worried about what he was going to say. >> i was telling myself in my head before, don't say bomb. when you try to suppress tourette's it comes out even worse. >> reporter: and it did. those with tourette's often can't control verbal tics. through security, at the gates, michael, uncontrollably blurted out what can be a frightening word these days. >> i probably said bomb, bomb, about -- 100 times in that terminal. and through tsa. >> reporter: traveling with friends to an 18th century battle reenactment, doyle had planned ahead, carrying medical documentation, describing his condition.
7:19 am
it got him through security. but in the boarding area on thursday, the jetblue pilot heard him say "bomb" and refused to allow the young man on the flight. his friends stayed with him. >> it's very frustrating after three hours of sitting there. and then, two years planning. doesn't happen. >> reporter: frustrating, but also a sign of the times? >> tensions are high. people are worried. they're nervous. they know that there have been terrorist attacks. at the end of the day, the pilot in command has the decision of who gets on that airplane and who doesn't. >> reporter: jetblue says after furtherer investigation, the situation was deemed to be innocuous. but no guarantee that he'll be able to board a future flight. >> it does not make me want to fly at all. >> reporter: you could hear him with the tic when he said bomb in the piece. he stayed home. so did his friends. they missed the reenactment. this will start a discussion in the aviation industry. over the next couple of weeks,
7:20 am
how do you handle this? especially someone with medical documentation. the pilot is the one who gets the final say, no matter what. >> you can't blame the pilot. you wish they would have found another way around it. >> he did everything he could. giving them the documentation. letting them know. >> he let it be known. he let it be known. let him fly. >> what do you guys think at home? tell us at right now. lots more ahead. vanished. a young mom missing. abducted from the late shift. what her family is saying this morning. real-life open water. the harrowing ordeal for two siblings swimming 14 hours in shark-infested waters. we'll talk to them live in an abc news exclusive. and trading barbs over basketball. why an nba cheerleader is under attack over her weight? terrible. big wedding anniversary. are there new clues to whether will and kate are having a boy or a girl? we'll tell you.
