[ scream ] >> reporter: fast forward a few years, and the museum was born. shining a new light on some dark subject matter.
>> what i hope people take away from visiting is to question our own attitudes about death. not to say it's good or bad but just through showing all of these objects and books that have all this information about the ways in which different people in different times and places have dealt with death, to urge people to question our own attitudes. >> reporter: i certainly began questioning my own attitudes about death, probably when joanna put a real human skull into my hands. >> i am really freaking out that i am holding this in my hands right now. >> do you want me to make it? >> not that i'm scared of it. i just can't believe that that's what just happened. >> reporter: but that skull, which by the way belonged to an indian man who died in the '30s, wasn't the only character i met at the museum. >> i don't know if you guys have heard of something called santa muerta. >> does it main saint death? >> yeah, literally means saint or holy death. this is a folk tradition that
emerged in mexico. a female figure of death kind of like the grim reaper is worshiped as a saint so she can be on an altar next to the virgin of guadalupe and other sorts of figures. it's seen by some people as satanic but by practitioners it's just seen as one of many saints or holy figures that can intercede on your behalf. this is a lot of people's favorite object in the entire museum. it is two ducklings. so together it is not really a two-headed duckling. >> they were not born like that? >> they were not born like that. >> reporter: in fact, blame tonight full moon or some kind of enchantment but after a while i started acting like some of the museum's inhabitants. safe to say there's something for every maturity level at the museum of morbid anatomy including those with an affinity for intellectual history and art. of the dead animal variety. one piece in particular stood out. ♪ >> so this is the centerpiece of the exhibit. this is a piece called the kittens' wedding by a 19th century taxidermist, self-taught
taxidermist named walter potter. it's 20 kittens engaged in a wedding ceremony. this guy's pissed off because he thinks the bride is marrying the wrong kitten. >> reporter: despite being surrounded by dead kittens, by artwork made of human hair and human teeth for sale, like our favorite horror movies i couldn't look away. but why, why especially this time of year do we dare examine things we usually find so spooky? >> i think there's a sense of mystery, a sense of pleasure in the dark side, a sense of laughing at death. >> reporter: although i've yet to sign up for my first taxidermy class, and yes the museum offers them, i was way less creeped out than i expected to be. from the museum of morbid anatomy in brooklyn, will ganss, abc news. >> what does it say about will that he was less creeped out than he expected to be? >> our halloween spectacular.

at us. we're not going to be knocked off course. >> so donald trump is pouncing on the fbi review. at every campaign stop he makes he says he expects clinton and her supporters to say or do something to detract from the e-mail issue. >> hillary clinton is not the victim, by the way. she's not the victim. you the american people are the victims of this corrupt system. in every way. and this is your last chance to change it. >> the fbi is facing some intense criticism as well. senate minority leader harry reid wrote a scathing letter to comey accusing him of breaking the law by announcing the review so close to the election. and former attorney general eric holder and dozens of other former federal prosecutors have signed a letter condemning comey's decision saying the public deserves more information. here's abc's pierre thomas. >> reporter: pressure mounting on the fbi director to say more about that case after the explosive revelation on friday. >> i think this was a terrible error in judgment by the director to release this kind of ambiguous letter. >> reporter: fbi director james comey this weekend began briefing lawmakers, who were
demanding more details about a new batch of recently disclosed e-mails potentially connected to secretary clinton's private server. >> we both encouraged him to make sure that the american people have as much information as possible before they have to make a decision on november 8th. >> reporter: the case was reignited by an investigation of an alleged sexting scandal involving anthony weiner. the fbi confiscated weiner's devices, including a laptop where sources say they discovered e-mails from abedin. those sources acknowledge the fbi doesn't know what's on those e-mails or whether they will turn out to be important. the focus, whether those e-mails contain classified information and are tied to clinton's private server. the fbi's obtained a court order allowing them to study abedin's e-mails. justice department officials had advised against alerting congress, citing department tradition of not talking about ongoing investigations and not doing anything that would be seen as influencing an election
in its final days. comey has operated with extraordinary independence, and matters were complicated after the attorney general's ill-fated meeting this summer with bill clinton on that tarmac in arizona. it apparently took weeks for the revelation to be brought to the fbi director. there are questions about why it took so long. a source tells abc news figuring out what to do was complicated and it was back and forth over how to handle the situation. pierre thomas, abc news, washington. >> pierre, thank you. we have breaking news now from oklahoma. a murder suspect on the run for more than a week has been shot dead. michael vance was wanted in the murders of his aunt and uncle and for shooting two police officers with an ak-47. he was killed in a shootout with police in western oklahoma. vance was spotted earlier in the day by a farmer who reported it to police when law enforcement responded vance shot a sheriff's deputy, but that sheriff's deputy is expected to be okay. we're going to turn our
focus overseas now and to italy where thousands of people have lost their homes after a third and powerful earthquake struck the central part of that country. the sunday morning quake was a 6.6. it destroyed centuries-old buildings and in one area in particular sent monks and nuns running for safety. no one was killed in sunday's earthquake. an italian seismologist says that more significant quakes can be expected in that region. now to a major new development in the battle to retake the iraqi city of mosul from isis. thousands of fighters have reinforced shiite militias in an effort to cut off the terror group's forces near the city. some 15,000 shiites are now in the battle. they're receiving help from iranian military advisers as well. and just after those reinforcements were announced a series of explosions rocked shiite neighborhoods in baghdad. five blasts killed at least 17 people and wounded dozens of others. it's believed the blasts were in response to the shiite fighters joining the battle. also the first church service was held in the recently liberated largest christian town in northern iraq. the town fell to isis two years
ago and was retaken last week. there is still fighting in the town's outskirts, but community leaders say they will rebuild that church completely. we move on now to that huge scare for travelers in this country. an american airlines jet bursting into flames as it was about to take off from chicago. investigators still have no idea why the jet's engine failed and shot pieces thousands of feet away. abc's eva pilgrim has more. >> reporter: a packed jet erupting in flames, stirring panic on board just seconds before takeoff. federal investigators revealing something inside the engine of this boeing 767 broke apart. >> examination of the engine has revealed that the stage 2 disks of the high-pressure turbine failed. >> reporter: the miami-bound flight on the runway. >> jump and slide. >> reporter: when hot debris from the engine sparked that massive fire. >> this engine disintegrated.

were struck by a car yesterday at martinsville speedway. it happened not during the race but afterward in the handicapped parking lot. a chevrolet convertible tried to pass a jeep in line to leaving the parking lot, and instead went into a crowd of pedestrians. nine people were taken to the hospital, but none of the injuries we're told appear to be life-threatening. and jury selection begins today in the case of the former police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black man. video of the shooting of walter scott in charleston, south carolina shocked the country, but michael slager's attorney contends there was a lot more to that incident than what appeared on the video including a fight between the pair and a struggle over the officer's taser. and we're just now getting a look at a dangerous attack at the new orleans airport from last year. this video shows a man approaching, then spraying officers with what was wasp spray. he then whips out a machete. passengers were running for their lives, as you saw there. that attacker was shot by officers and later died of his injuries. the donations are pouring in to fund the protest against the pipeline in north dakota. crowdsourcing has provided more than $1 million to help a few

>> love it, right? >> yes. >> well, some elephants played a similar game only instead of bubble wrap it was 1,000-pound pumpkins. this is at the oregon zoo. they gave the elephants all these giant pumpkins to stomp on, squash, in some cases even snack on, and they say that this is a good way to just keep the animals sort of entertained and mentally active when they're in captivity like this and they let some of the other zoo animals have some fun like this earlier on in the week as well. >> it's one way for them to just kind of like go to town and eat if they get hungry. >> some of them were snacking on them as well. >> there you go. keeping with the halloween theme, this one has nothing to do with it. there's a kid in alabama who has created his own food pantry inside of a mail room there in his dorm. this is really cool. his name is justin franks. he's only 20 years old. he goes to alabama a&m. and the whole purpose of it is
to feed hungry students. he started out by buying $40 worth of food and then the operation grew, and now the cafeteria on campus closes relatively early so that he can set up the pantry to be open between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. it has grown, and it's a great cause. >> he would have had a lot of friends at boston college if he was offering free food to people. i will tell you that. >> oh, my word, yeah. all of a sudden all the kids are hungry. those who are getting the late-night munchies. >> a great cause. and amazing that he thought of that. >> yeah. >> so i want to take you over to asia now. i don't know if you've ever been to vietnam, for example. >> i haven't. >> but this is a fairly common scene. for whatever reason this particular video is going viral. it's four cats on the back of a moped. or actually one on the handlebars technically speak. the man apparently does it all the time. the cats seem to enjoy the ride. but again, scenes like this, we've seen people carrying gas cans, an entire family. you name it. it's fair game if it fits on a it's fair game if it fits on a moped.

it is monday october 31st. it is halloween. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." wondering who is that? >> the juju beat as well? >> she did like a dab in there. she did everything. every dance was in there. >> happy halloween to you all. by the way, we love photos of costumes. so feel free to send us yours as well and we will be thoroughly entertained. >> i like turtles. just random. >> we begin this morning, though, we have some breaking news from oklahoma. a fugitive murderer -- or murder suspect, that is, has been killed in a battle with police. >> we're talking about michael vance, who had been on the run for just over a week. vance was wanted for the murder of his aunt and his uncle for a shooting at four people including two police officers. >> after not being heard or seen in days vance was spotted by a farmer earlier in the day in the western part of the state.
the highway patrol spoke shortly after that. >> about 3:00 this afternoon a farmer discovered a vehicle in his field, a vehicle that came very close to matching the description of the vehicle we'd been looking for, the suspect vehicle. >> before that final shootout last night vance shot and wounded a sheriff's deputy, but he is expected to be okay. >> of course we're going to continue to follow the developments with that. we want to turn now to politics and the e-mail controversy that is now plaguing hillary clinton's campaign. >> the fbi now has a search warrant clearing the way to sift through thousands of e-mails found on a laptop used by clinton aide huma abedin and her husband anthony weiner. our latest abc news/"washington post" national tracking poll shows clinton's 12-point lead from last week has virtually
evaporated. she's now just one point ahead of donald trump, which is a statistical dead heat. >> and trump is using the e-mail review to rev up his supporters saying we never thought we were going to say thank you to anthony weiner. it's your voice your vote. here's abc's mary bruce. >> reporter: hillary clinton fighting to shake off that october shocker. >> everyone is knocked down in life. what matters is whether you get back up. >> reporter: with days to go clinton now targeting a new opponent, fbi director james comey. >> some of you may have heard about a letter that the fbi director sent out yesterday. [ boos ] >> reporter: she's questioning his motivation and demanding answers about his review of new e-mails possibly linked to her private server, e-mails discovered on the laptop of disgraced former congressman anthony weiner, the estranged husband of clinton's top aide huma abedin. weiner now under investigation for allegedly sexting a teen. comey making the new review public on friday. even though there is no evidence of wrongdoing by clinton. >> it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right
before an election. in fact, in fact it's not just strange, it's unprecedented and it is deeply troubling. >> reporter: her campaign launching a coordinated strike. >> it's just extremely puzzling. why would you release information that is so incomplete when you haven't even seen the material yourself? >> it was long on innuendo, short on facts. so we're calling on mr. comey to come forward and explain what's at issue here. >> let's just get all the information out there on the table. there's hypotheticals flying all over the place. >> reporter: our latest polling shows roughly a third of all likely voters say the new e-mail probe makes them less likely to support clinton. but about 20 million americans have already cast their ballot. gail greenman already voted for clinton in florida.
now she wishes she had more information. >> does this new investigation change at all how you would have voted? >> if i knew what it was about, it would have, it possibly would have. >> reporter: on the trail clinton eager to change the narrative. >> there's a lot of noise and distraction, but it really comes down to what kind of future we want. >> reporter: and clinton is getting some backup from top senate democrats demanding that comey release more information on this new review by today. in a scathing letter senate democratic leader harry reid is accusing comey of trying to influence the election. mary bruce, abc news, miami. >> she's getting a lot of support as well elsewhere. former attorney general and dozens of other former federal prosecutors have signed a letter criticizing the fbi director's decision to alert congress about those e-mails. and eric holder went even further, posting an op-ed in the "washington post." he called james comey a good man of integrity and honor. but he said good men make mistakes. holder said comey violated long-standing justice department policies and tradition on the proper way to conduct
investigations during an election cycle. and experts are warning that central italy could be hit by more powerful earthquakes after a 6.6 quake struck over the weekend. it was the third major one to hit in just the past two months. abc's jennifer eccleston is there. >> reporter: a 6.6 magnitude tremor caused widespread destruction. this drone video showing crumbled buildings in the town of amatrice in central italy, the same town already hit by a deadly earthquake in august. the new tremors causing even more damage. panicked residents ran to safety, embracing, kneeling, praying in the central plazas. fears rising with each aftershock as more buildings disappear in a cloud of dust. firefighters helped cloistered nuns to safety, their church destroyed, the bell tower on the point of collapse. one nun describing what she felt saying -- >> "[ speaking foreign language ]. >> reporter: "there was this end of world feeling. you just can't say a tremor.
it was more than that. all the house was moving." the earthquake was the strongest in italy in 36 years, hitting a mountain area just north of rome. pope francis mentioned the quake in his weekly sunday blessing, saying -- >> [ speaking foreign language ]. >> reporter: "i pray for the injured and for the families who have suffered damage." italy's prime minister promised help, telling reporters that -- >> [ speaking foreign language ]. >> reporter: "we will rebuild everything, the houses, the churches, and the businesses." that might take a long time. with thousands of people left without a roof over their heads and churches lying in a heap of rubble. jennifer eccleston, abc news, italy. back here at home, today of course is a huge day for fans of sweets. >> so let's get a look at that halloween forecast to see how those trick-or-treaters will fare. over in the western states they may need to bundle up a little.
apparent storms will bring rain, wind, and mountain snow to the west, especially for northern california northward. it will be dry and chilly, though, for most of the rest of the country. >> and high temperatures will only reach the 50s in the northwest. not quite 70 in los angeles. dallas, memphis, new orleans should hit 87 degrees today. atlanta 86. washington's high will be 59. cooler further up northeast corridor. and some new details about an amazing story of survival. a 41-year-old motorcyclist survived a crash on a road in tennessee, then survived more than a day before help arrived. kevin diepenbrock fell 100 feet off that road after colliding with his friend, who did die in the accident. he couldn't move because of his injuries and he didn't have cell service. so he recorded a final good-bye video for his family. >> i don't know what to say. hopefully, i'll be able to sleep and catch a state trooper in the morning. i just want to say i love you
guys. sorry i was being stupid. but you know, that's what i do. >> diepenbrock was saved when another motorcyclist heard his screams for help. he suffered 17 bone breaks, including 12 of his ribs and several other injuries. needless to say, though, still very, very thankful to be alive. so who doesn't like giant pandas? a guy in china apparently. he somehow got into the panda enclosure in an eastern chinese zoo and wrestled with one of the animals. officials say he was trying to impress a couple of female friends. that'll always do it. the panda thought he was playing. but the game got a little rough.
zookeepers say the panda is doing fine. the guy is still on the run. and he's still single probably. and while we're dealing with animals, we have a question before we get to this next story. >> what's your question? >> is what you're about to look at really an animal? >> hmm. >> there's something seemingly swimming there in a river in alaska. but what is it? >> so when the video was posted online, plenty of people were saying it looked like the loch ness monster had swam over from scotland. >> that would be a little tough. >> but a biologist is throwing cold water on that theory. cold water. he says it looks like nessie is just a 15-foot piece of rope that's stuck to a bridge pier. >> no. that's no fun. >> come on. >> it's moving. that's alive. >> come on. >> what do you think it is, jack? it kind of looked like just some of the ice and snow trailed away. >> it's alive. >> it very much looks alive. i'm choosing to believe that nessie came for a visit. not this piece of rope off a bridge story. good one, biologists, good one.
>> like they know anything. coming up, why david cassidy stopped the music over the weekend. what one fan was doing in the crowd that prompted the former "partridge family" star to dress him down and teach him a lesson. and a prank that's hacking smartphones across america, flooding 911 centers with bogus calls. how your phone may be next.

well, technology may be outpacing law enforcement's ability to maintain control over its emergency dispatch centers. >> an internet prank has been hacking smartphones across america, flooding 911 centers with bogus calls, and even knocking those centers completely off line. here's abc's neal karlinsky. >> 911, what are you reporting? >> reporter: it was an otherwise normal night in thurston county, washington, when 911 operators thought they had a catastrophe on their hands. >> all of a sudden the phones just went off the hook. >> reporter: there was no emergency. it was a hoax fueled by a malicious hack taking over people's cell phones when they clicked on this link being spread on twitter. andrea jara clicked and lost control of her own phone. >> it just started calling 911 like crazy and i couldn't stop. i kept clicking the end button and nothing was happening. it just kept recalling, recalling, recalling. >> reporter: she's in florida where 911 operators were also
hit. the broward county sheriff among those warning of the major public safety issue. in washington state an 18-year-old man has been arrested for investigation of data service interference. police say he claims he spread the link after getting it elsewhere. law enforcement are warning the shame link is being shared nationwide and once you click the only way to get your phone to stop calling 911 is to fully power it off. >> all right. great to know. abc's neal karlinsky. neal, thanks. when we come back, hear how celebrities are decking out for halloween. >> and what exactly angered david cassidy enough for him to stop the music right on stage?
