we do say good morning, america. you know what, it's like sticking the landing having david muir here with us. >> what? >> yes, it is. >> all this week. how about simone though? >> how about her? i thought my double today was impressive and she goes and does this triple-double. did you see this over the weekend? she made history. a weekend gold over the weekend. look at that move, something no woman, no gymnast has ever done before. >> you did your double in a suit which is ever harder. but she also took home her sixth all-around title, tieing a record. such an amazing achievement for her and for the whole team. congratulations. >> absolutely. we'll have more on that ahead. first, we're going to begin with the questions growing this morning surrounding the death of accused sex trafficker, jeffrey epstein. the fbi and justice department on the case investigating his apparent suicide while he was in federal custody here in manhattan. our chief national affairs correspondent tom llamas is
7:03 am
there outside the jail with new details. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning urces at theeptment of justice tell us right now the focus of investigators is on the 24 hours leading up to epstein's suicide, that attorney general william barr wants to be updated every three hours on any developments and there are numerous agents working on this case. this morning, abc news is learning new details about the security breakdown surrounding accused sex trafficker jeffrey epstein's apparent suicide inside of a manhattan jail cell. his death by hanging now being investigated by the fbi and the inspector general. a source telling abc news the metropolitan correctional center has been understaffed, leading to low morale among guards. another source tells us that the two guards in the special housing unit where epstein was being held were both on overtime. one of the guards on his fifth overtime shift of the week, and
7:04 am
that those guards were supposed to check on epstein every 30 minutes, but did not in the hours before he was discovered saturday morning. attorney bruce barkett represtsps fmemate who rood wit epstein was found unresponsive with marks on his neck. at the time epstein was put on suicide watch, but only for six days. >> one has to wonder how it is that this man who just tried to take his own life by hanging himself a few weeks ago was in a position to successfully hang himself. >> reporter: epstein's death coming less than 24 hours after 2,000 pages of new court documents, including depositions and police reports, were made public. >> you're screaming on the inside, and you don't know how to let it come out. all you do is obey. that's it. >> reporter: in those unsealed documents, virginia roberts guiffre's 2015 defamation suit against ghislaine maxwell, a british socialite and longtime epstein associate who epstein's accusers described as his madam. in deposition testimony she says
7:05 am
that maxwell recruited her to be a teenage sex slave to epstein and that epstein directed her to have sex with powerful men including former new mexico governor bill richardson, former maine senator george mitchell and prince andrew. all of the men deny those allegations. >> give jeffrey what he wants. a lot of this training came from ghislane herself. >> reporter: maxwell has consistently denied the allegations and so far has not been charged but prosecutors pledging to take down anyone who conspired with epstein to commit his years of alleged sexual assault on underaged girls. and epstein still able to torment some of his accusers even in death. >> i really wanted justice. i really wanted him to take up for what he did and to be put in jail or prison and have to sit there and think about what it is he exactly did to so many people. >> reporter: now, following epstein's suicide, president
7:06 am
trump retweeted two conspiracy theories that were completely baseless, suggesting bill clinton was somehow behind the suicide because he had a past association with epstein. again, no proof, completely baseless. we should also mention that president trump himself had a past relationship with jeffrey epstein. both presidents say they knew nothing about these terrible crimes. david? >> tom llamas covering this all weekend long, thanks. let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams this morning. we know the department of justice as tom just reported is looking into this. they're getting updates every three hours or so. but what do you make of what could happen for somebody in the jail or administrators inside the jail? >> heads are going to roll in one way or another. the question is going to be, is it going to be administrative, is it going to be people getting fired or are there going to be charges? for there to be criminal charges you're going to need intentional acts, not just negligence, not just they should have done something more, but it's going to have to have been literally a bribe or a payoff or someone instructing someone to do something else.
7:07 am
so something intentional for criminal charges. >> people really scratching their heads this weekend when they heard this headline because this is a guy who tried to kill himself a couple weeks ago, supposed to be on suicide watch. how does this happen? >> in a place where it should never happen. that's the point. it should never happen in this particular jail. there are going to be questions. the problem is there's no evidence at this point to support any of the theories about some very well connected person ordering epstein to be killed. and so that puts you back to the more likely scenarios which is some combination of negligence with good luck on the part of epstein. now, is it possible that he engaged in some activity? did he pay someone off? we'll see. there's again nothing to indicate that happened, but if it wasn't just negligence, unfortunately for a lot of people who want answers, that may be the next most likely answer. >> in the meantime everyone's got a theory on what really happened. >> yeah. >> what about the prosecution? they say the prosecution continues, prosecutors will move
7:08 am
forward on this and his associates who tom reported on there, they shouldn't be breathing a sigh of relief yet. >> absolutely not. the southern district of new york has made it clear they're continuing to investigate a conspiracy. number two, there were employees mentioned in the epstein indictment. there were three employees mentioned there. they can all be investigated. then you also have the possibility of civil lawsuits as well. so i don't think anyone is breathing a sigh of relief in particular because people want accountability and if epstein's not around to get it, someone else may have to. >> dan abrams, great to have you this morning. thanks. robin, michael? >> all right. thank you, david. now to a scare at a mall in houston sending panicked crowds running into the streets. people are especially on edge in the wake of those mass shootings last week and linsey davis is here with more. police are searching for the suspect who caused this. >> that's right. they certainly are. good morning to you, michael. houston police say this time the suspect has not been located, but they have numerous witnesses
7:09 am
and are continuing to investigate. they are treating this as a terroristic threat and desperately want to find the person behind this pandemonium.t epter:ass nic at astall. shprinng intcomi >>h, my god. lieved was an active shooter, but in reality just the latest example of a nation on edge. police say it all started when a masked man jumped onto a table at the food court, threatening to take his own life, then dropped an unidentified object on the ground causing mass panic. the stampede caused two minor injuries. authorities are now searching for the suspect and labelling the incident as a terrorist threat after back-to-back mass shootings. communities around the country are restless. last week in times square, a loud popping sound caused hundreds to flee the area. in reality, it was a motorcycle backfiring. >> it was like pretty much a stampede of people just sprinting as fast as they could. >> reporter: the fbi is also on high alert with concerns of copycat attacks, domestic violence extremists inspired by
7:10 am
the recent mass shootings in el paso and dayton committing their own acts of terror. late last week 20-year-old was arrested at a walmart after entering the store wearing a military style rifle and body armor. police say he wanted to test the boundaries of his second amendment rights. police say a 16-year-old boy and his mother both suffered minor injuries in that mall scare. the mother was reportedly stepped on several times on her back as she was trying to help her son. authorities say the suspect is described as a white male in his teens or early 20s. >> creates a dangerous situation all the way around. >> for sure. so many people being nervous when they hear this noise. first they thought it was gunfire, then fireworks. really scary. >> a lot of people on edge. >> yep. now we have a new severe weather threat. the midwest to northeast bracing for possible twisters and flash flooding while the south faces triple digit heat. ginger of course tracking the latest. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, robin. there were ten reported tornadoes, more than 180 severe

7:32 am
this morning, an alarming incident involving a tesla, this time on a packed highway in russia. a tesla model 3 electric car became engulfed in flames after it crashed into a parked tow truck along the highway at more than 60 miles per hour. this video which aired on russian state tv shows just moments after the crash when the tesla erupts. the driver of the car reportedly said he was using driver assistance holding the steering wheel and says he did not see the truck. the driver escaped before the flames erupted along with his two children who were rushed to the hospital, grateful to be alive. the vehicle was reportedly in auto pilot mode which is not a self-driving system and requires driver supervision.
7:33 am
it's touted by tesla as an advanced driver assistance system that enhances safety and convenience behind the wheel. questions remain about the general safety of automation in vehicles. earlier this month tesla was hit with a lawsuit after a 50-year-old man died allegedly after his model x crashed into an off-ramp divider at nearly 70 miles an hour. autopilot had been turned on ten seconds before that crash, according to the ntsb. and in december, an ow that his tesla model s caught fire twice in one day, six hours apart, in northern california. no one was injured in that incident. tesla says they investigated. this, however, was a battery issue, not an automation issue. now, we reached out to tesla. they are not commenting but in regards to that fatal incident, they say that drivers supported by autopilot are safer than those operating without assistance. in this instance, the metal frame is all that remains of this vehicle.

8:03 am
ago epstein was put on a suicide watch list. now, that's the question that attorney general william barr wants answered. he's launched two investigations into this matter. so right now investigators are working around the clock to figure out exactly how this happened. now, we can't forget the accusers here. they had hoped and waited for so long that jeffrey epstein would finally see justice, that they would see justice, that they would see him behind bars. you can argue he's now tormenting them in his death. many of them outraged over all of this but there may be hope. prosecutors say they are looking into the conspiracy aspect because a lot of these accusers say there was a network around jeffrey epstein that helped him commit these crimes. prosecutors may go after those co-conspirators in the future. we'll have to wait and see on that. right after epstein died on that saturday, president trump retweeting conspiracy theories linking bill clinton to the attempted suicide because clinton had a past relationship with epstein. again, completely baseless, no proof. we should also mention president trump himself had a past association with epstein.

8:34 am
i love that you're doing that. the magic ingredient is soy sauce. >> that's all you added to the ground beef? >> that's all i added. i see you got hungry there. for something unusual we're doing buns that are made out of the eggplant we got. >> you're making a -- i was wondering how you're going to make a bun out of eggplant. >> this was surprising because we didn't have buns from the people we bought things from. here she is getting so inventive. >> i know you have tomatoes and scallions. >> usually you put them up top. you're doing something a little different. >> i'm doing a scallion gem, a mix of caramelized onions, ketchup, brown sugar and vinegar and you get this delicious -- you can see you've got your burger, eggplant bun. you've got to cook the eggplant through in the same pan where you cooked the meat and put this sort of salsa on top. >> ginger is ahead. curve here.
8:35 am
she's already eating. >> then it's kind of like a ketchup and caramelized -- >> chutney. >> ginger, were you surprised you were able to cook for a family of four for 23 bucks? >> incredibly surprised because that is not how i shop usually. you showed me so many things. we took the food that day because this is different food obviously, took the food and cooked ourselves and made a beautiful meal but it was nothing like this so there's so many things you can do with the same ingredients. teachable moment for me. >> when you have the beef and then you have pasta, we're just doing onions with -- >> this is another meal for just 23 bucks. >> from the same stuff we bought. all these mushrooms in here, a little marsala. >> let me do my part here. >> drop that in, the marsala with the onions. >> it's all about the way you drizzle. >> next time you're coming to the supermarket with us. >> i have to say we had money left over but we also got enough
