morning america" good morning, america. breaking right now, mystery solved. is this the wing from that missing malaysian airliner more than a year after more than 200 passengers disappeared without a trace? the new clues washing ashore this m do they hold the key to what really happened to flight 370? point-blank. a cincinnati cop charged with killing a man during a routine traffic stop. prosecutors saying the new body camera revealing a cold-blooded murderer. >> i discharged one round. struck the man in the head. >> the officer and the family of the victim speaking out this morning. under siege. the hunter now the hunted. protesters surround the office of that minnesota dentist who shot the world famous lion. shutting down his business. his new plea to patients as authorities overseas now want to question him.
7:01 am
will he be charged? survivor story. one of the hero teachers from that movie theater shooting speaking out overnight. >> i've never told so many people, my family and friends that i've loved them as i have in the past five days. >> the woman credited with saving so many lives revealing what happened inside that theater for the first time. how she found the strength to get out alive. and good morning, america. let's get right to that huge break in the search for missing malaysian flight 370. one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history vanished without a trace more than 500 days ago. now the first clues, a brand-new one coming in just moments ago. reports this suitcase was found near the wing fragment that washed ashore. >> flight 370 disappeared over the night sky back in march of last year. the search has covered more than 46,000 square miles. this is the last known location of the plane and the 239 people on board it.
7:02 am
abc's bob woodruff has been covering the story from the very beginning and he joins us now. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, amy. from here in beijing, you know, this has been big news here today. 153 of the passengers were chinese. families have been living with this tragedy for more than 16 months, perhaps this mystery is starting to unravel. it's about six feet long covered in barnacles and other marine life, a broken bit of wreckage that may hold answers to the mystery of what happened to flight mh370. it was found on a beach in the french island of reunion in the indian ocean more than 3500 miles from where australia continues to lead the search for clues. and even far farther from the last confirmed position of the plane near malaysia. >> it could have covered that distance in the 16 months since the aircraft presumably went into the water. >> reporter: aviation experts believe the part of the plane ahere appears to be a flaperon.
7:03 am
a component unique to a 577. only five 777 have crashed in history. none from this part of the world. it took off with 239 aboard from kuala lumpur but disappeared from radar screens less than an hour later. the last communication was when the boeing 777 flew over the south china sea, the final words from the cockpit, good night, malaysian 370. a number on the wreckage bb 670 is expected to help investigators in the identification process. this number most likely not a serial or registration number but officials believe it could be a maintenance number. back here in beijing even if this turns out to be a wing part from flight 370, many relatives just wouldn't believe it. this man told me that any announcement by malaysia airlines would be a company conspiracy to cover everything up. this woman lost her five family members including her sister and grandson. if it's proven to be true -- she
7:04 am
say says no matter what the officials say about the wing, it will be a lie. they've been doing the same thing since last year, she says. they just keep changing their explanation. of course, not everyone believes in conspiracy here in china. others do believe their friends or family members did not survive. they are just waiting for the facts to be confirmed so that they can finally get some closure. george. >> okay, bob, thanks. >> let's get more on this from aviation expert steven ganyard. what more could we know? we've seen few 777s that have gone done and have bb670. what does that tell us? >> i think we're seeing some positive reports this morning, george, that suggest that this is a piece of a 777 and i think that given the paint and all the other extenuating circumstances i think that we can probably say that this will be and will turn out to be a piece of malaysia 370. >> so what does that tell us about where the plane went down? >> unfortunately not much. remember this piece has been out at sea adrift for 16 months and if you look at the currents in the indian ocean they really run
7:05 am
in a counterclockwise formation, counter circular formation so it's taken that 16 months for these pieces to drift from where we think the airplane hit the water all the way back over to the other side of the indian ocean so it's drifted for so long, there's probably no evidence on the piece itself that will help us figure out why the airplane went down or where it sits at the bottom now. >> so does it change the search area at all? >> no, i don't think it will. it's drifted so far away and done forensics and analysis pointing at that part of the indian ocean off the australian coast still remains the valid place where they're looking. george, i've met with these investigators three times over the past six months in canberra. they today remain absolutely convinced that they will find the wreckage of mh370 on the bottom of the indian ocean. >> after we get the first clue, okay, steve, thanks very much. now to that cincinnati police officer charged with murder for shooting a driver during a traffic stop, yet another case where the officer
7:06 am

7:07 am
but fails to produce his license. >> i'm asking you a direct question. do you have a license on you? >> reporter: that's when tensing reaches for the car door. >> i didn't do anything. >> go ahead and take your seat belt off, stop, stop. >> reporter: we won't show you what happens next but you can hear the gunshot. dubose's car starts rolling out of control. tensing racing after it until it crashes. the engine still revving. >> we need a medic now. >> reporter: moments later on police radio this is how tensing describes what happened. >> i almost got run over by the car. he took off on me. i discharged one round. struck the man in the head. >> reporter: the officer later claiming in a police report he was being dragged by the vehicle and had to fire his weapon. prosecutors say tensing never should have pulled the trigger. >> this is the most assanine act
7:08 am
i've seen a police officer make. >> reporter: a second video taken from the body cam of another officer shows tensing on the ground. do you think your client was dragged, looking at this video, was he dragged by that car? >> you can tell from the second video that he was, in fact, how he ended up on the ground in the middle of the street. >> reporter: he says his 25-year-old client cried when learning of the indictment. >> he just hand -- face in his hands, dropped to the table and just astonished. couldn't believe it. >> reporter: dubose's mother had this message for the officer who took her son's life. >> may god have mercy on your soul. >> reporter: now, tensing's attorney believes dubose may have been trying to get away because of his extensive criminal record, arrested more than 50 times. i asked the dubose family about this and they say he has never run from the law, and he's had multiple opportunities. george? >> okay, tom, thanks very much. we learn so much from these body cams. we turn to a new wildfire erupting in the west overnight. hundreds of people forced to flee their homes. thousands of acres scorched. abc's neal karlinsky is in lake county with the latest.

7:11 am
walker and jeb bush with the rest of the field barely registering at all but in a hypothetical matchup against hillary clinton, trump does quite poorly. jeb bush, scott walker, both would be virtually tied against hillary clinton. donald trump gets trounced by more than -- by double digits and one key category here that explains that. trump leads among those who say there is no way they would vote for him one-third of republicans say no way they would vote for donald trump. >> and, jon, this -- next week is the debate. only the top ten will be in the first debate so this could help shuffle the bottom of that lineup, as well. >> reporter: yeah, there's probably as much attention at the bottom spaces on this poll and right now you have a battle for tenth with four governors, chris christie, rick perry, bobby jindal and john kasich are all right between 8% and 12% in the poll. >> thanks very much. now to the latest in the deflategate scandal. the nfl players union filing a lawsuit in federal court on tom brady's behalf asking a judge to overturn the superstar's

all right, back now with a question a lot of people have been asking after the nfl said tom brady destroyed his phone with thousands of text messages on it. does destroying your phone actually delete the messages? how do you get rid of all your personal information when you turn in your ole phone? abc's gio benitez is here with
7:43 am
what you need to know. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning, michael. the issue is many text messages are not just stored on your phones, they're floating around on some server so this morning we've got the guide to your digital privacy. what's the best way to get rid of data on your cell phone? manualally delete or even physically destroy? "gma investigates" has shown you how people think they've deleted the info on their phone, only to be completely wrong especially thanks to digital clouds, automatically storing all of that info right in cyberspace. out of 100 phones we looked at with a company elysium. >> 31 had what i considered to be disturbing personal information. >> reporter: real information a real crook can do something with. >> we found social security numbers, bank account number, passwords. >> reporter: 2,838 photos extracted so what can you do to protect your information if you decide to sell or dump your phone? we went to the experts at cnet.

>> the chose common mistake is asupering setting the reset button will reset all the data. >> reporter: for an iphone log out of all of your accounts. then go to your settings menu. >> the instinct hit reset all settings, right? that is actually the wrong thing to do. you should actually hit the second option here, erase all content and settings and that'll effectively wipe the phone. >> reporter: as for an android encrypt it under the security menu before hitting factory data reset all under setting. >> even though you erase the data you want to encrypt it so if it manages to get recovered it won't be easily accessible. >> reporter: text messages, are they ever completely gone? it depends. two major phone companies tell us they keep records of text messages which for some include date, time and phone number and one attorney who dealt with this telling "gma" phone carriers typically only preserve the content of text messages for three to five days.
7:45 am
>> if someone destroys his cell phone and the cell phone carrier's records are subpoenaed, all the records will show is that a text was sent from one phone to another. >> reporter: now the experts at cnet telling us if privacy is important to you, apps like snapchat and whatsapp are encrypting their messages making them much more difficult to read and hack but the number one tip, have a really strong password on that phone. not 1234 like yours michael. >> you gave it away. got to change it now in they can have my phone. pictures move cats and babies, texts from my wife saying go to the store. it's not that big of a deal. >> famous last words. >> exactly. >> i'm tempting fate. >> yes, you are. next on "gma," this image trending all over the world this morning. now the incredible comeback story that's behind it and you won't believe who inspired him. hi!
