7:01 am
clooney in the dress. making headlines around the world. new details from inside their wedding. you'll never guess who serenaded them with their first song. ♪ there is beauty in the world and we do say good morning, america. on this tuesday morning. and, boy, do we have a huge morning for you. take a look right outside of our studio right there. these fans have been lining up since 7:00 p.m. 7:00 last night to see 5 seconds of summer perform live. one of the hottest bands on the planet. >> they are keeping summer going all year long. incredible crowds out here today. >> they started on youtube. and then they were discovered by a one direction band member. >> quite a twist. so that is coming up. we have a lot of news to get to this morning. including the unimaginable details of the security breach at the white house.
7:02 am
the armed intruder made it much further inside than first revealed by the secret service. abc's chief justice correspondent pierre thomas starts us off. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. the secret service director will be tasing tough questions from congress on the latest white house intrusion. the more we learn, the more outrageous this story gets. >> everybody back. everybody back to the park. >> reporter: this morning, we know omar gonzalez, seen in this video running toward the white house, got inside the residence. racing free far further than the secret service first admitted. a clear and present danger. >> he got deep enough that had the president, the vice president, or any other number of individuals been walking the hallways, they could have been attacked by mr. gonzalez. >> reporter: the breach is all the more chilling because the president and his daughters left the white house for camp david only four minutes earlier. sources tell abc news when gonzalez burst through the unlocked front door of the white house, he overpowered a female
7:03 am
secret service officer just inside. gonzalez, who was carrying a 3 1/2-inch knife, ran past a flight of stairs that leads to the first family's living quarters. next, he entered the east room, a formal setting, the scene of receptions and presidential addresses. it was just off the east room that president obama made the announcement about the killing of osama bin laden. gonzalez was finally tackled by an officer only a short distance away. that ended a cascade of failures, patrol officers not stopping the suspect from jumping the fence in the first place. no one in a position to tackle him after he made it on to the white house lawn. no attack dog released. an unlocked front door. and this morning, congress is investigating whether an alarm to alert the secret service of an intruder was put on mute because it was loud and frequently malfunctioned. the secret service suggested that the suspect was caught
7:04 am
right after getting inside the white house. that was not the case. and there are a lot of questions why this critical information was withheld. george? >> let's take that question. thank you, pierre. to abc's jon karl in the white house. i can't believe this false cover story was out there. and stayed out there for so long. >> reporter: amazing. i asked the president directly last week if he had confidence in the secret service. he told me he believes the secret service does a great job. he's grateful for the sacrifices they make for his family. but the question is, the public was clearly misled on this. at that point, did the president know the truth? did the secret service tell the president the truth about how far that intruder got into the white house? i have asked that question of the white house and have not gotten an answer yet. >> the secret service director will be getting those questions on capitol hill today. >> reporter: this is going to be a brutal hearing. testifying before a house committee. getting all the questions. all the procedures that were not followed in this case. and of course the critical question about why they didn't tell the truth at first. >> okay, jon karl, thank you very much.
7:05 am
>> okay, george. now to the new twist in the disappearance of uva student hannah graham. police have now linked the suspect, jesse matthew, to the murder of another young woman in the area back in 2009. steve osunsami is in charlottesville, virginia for us this morning. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. both of these women were walking alone late at night. but police aren't saying whether they're investigating a serial rapist or killer of any sort. they are looking at the man they have in custody here. >> we are really pleased to come to this day. >> reporter: the parents of 20-year-old morgan harrington have been saying this for weeks, that the disappearance of hannah graham is most likely connected to their daughter's disappearance in 2009. >> that's what it's always been about. to help save the next girl. we know where morgan is. morgan's in the box over there. hannah graham is still missing, and her family needs to know where she is. >> reporter: this morning, police are confirming they are
7:06 am
forensic evidence possibly connecting the two cases to 32-year-old jesse matthew. but only revealing it's a new forensic link for authorities to pursue. harrington was visiting the university of virginia for a metallica concert when she went missing. police found her body on a 700-acre farm outside charlottesville in 2010 three months later. >> with respect to morgan harrington, the question is the relationship between the incidents. it's certainly a very legitimate question. >> reporter: police investigating the harrington murder say they found dna evidence that matches evidence from a sexual assault in 2005. in a d.c. suburb. the unidentified 26-year-old was walking home from a grocery store and grabbed from behind. police are looking at the rough sketch of the suspect, trying to determine if it's matthew. in charlottesville alone, four missing person cases in the last five years. the hospital assistant and former football coach has a bond hearing thursday. he's charged with abduction in the graham case and has not yet entered a plea.
7:07 am
the last word from police was that matthew was not cooperating. police are still hoping they'll find hannah graham alive. but they're asking farmers outside the city to check their land. robin? >> everyone's hope is to find her. all right, steve, thank you. dan abrams is here with more on this. the police don't to want comment on it. the public is asking, could we be dealing with a serial murderer? >> and that's what they're looking into, that possibility. there are a number of missing persons cases in the area. so far the authorities saying they cannot connect this to any of those other cases. but no question that they're going to be looking at this. let's be clear on what we know right now. which is 2009, murder. connected to 2005 rape. for sure, it seems they have dna evidence there. now they're saying forensic link between 2009 and -- and this case -- >> what do they mean by that forensic link? >> picking those words carefully. they're saying there's a dna
7:08 am
link between the 2005 case and 2009. and yet using the word forensic link here. a, i think they're trying to be very careful to suggest we don't have anything 100% definitive yet. but maybe it's not dna evidence. maybe it's hair, maybe it's clothing, maybe it's something else that is not dna evidence. but i think they chose that word intentionally and carefully. but they're calling this a big break. >> and they're rightfully withholding some of this information from the public. hannah graham is still missing. what can they charge matthew with? >> they have already charged him with abduction with intent to defile. but remember, they could decide to charge one of these other cases. if they connect him with the 2009 case, they could move forward and say we're going to hold off on the hannah graham case as we continue to investigate it. >> we'll see what happens here. always something every day here. thank you, dan. we're going to turn now to the ebola outbreak. a patient in dallas is in strict
