5:01 am
they've got multiple lines of crime scenes tape out here this morning across the street and in front of several homes. one deputy i spoke with this morning says that at 6:00 yesterday evening, they started this investigation that led them here. they discovered a dead body, they won't say, though, if it is male or female or the exact circumstances or if there was a call of shots fired or some other disturbance. now, this would be the first homicide of the year for castro valley. i'm told the coroner has not been here yet, although, again, they started hours ago. i do have calls into a sheriff spokesperson for details. as soon as i hear from him, i'll let you know what he had to say. reporting live in castro valley, christie smith, "today in the bay." this morning, dozens of suspected criminals now off the streets after a massive sweep in oakland. police say 32 people are now behind bars after teams of officers raided multiple locations in a three-day sting. all 32 suspects are wanted for

5:05 am
i would put my money on it. >> reporter: the main players still making their rounds to would be investors throughout the country trying to convince them that facebook is worth the buy. the nine-day road trip kicked off last month so just over a week ago. the initial public offering expected to happen this friday could have facebook valued at more than $100 billion. that would make it more valuable than kraft foods, disney, or ford. live in menlo park this morning, "today in the bay." well, it's no secret talking and texting while driving is very unsafe and it could soon be very expensive. the state senate just approving a new fine to increase fines for drivers who don't go hands free. the fine is up from $20 to $30, but the actual cost could climb to nearly $200 once you factor in court fees. the measure bans bicyclists from talking and texting on the cell phones. the bill goes to the state

115 climbs. >> stage three's interesting, mt. diablo, we've never raced over it before. it's in the middle of the stage, not in the finish, so it could really make a difference or maybe not. so it'll be very interesting day to see. >> peter sagan of czech took stage two yesterday. this was the stage that ran from san francisco to santa cruz. he even crashed about 4 1/2 miles from the finish line, a wreck that did cost him 20 seconds, but with the help of his team, he still managed to pull back and take that stage. now, the race ends sunday in los angeles, that'll be after eight stages of total and 750 miles of riding. of course, stage three today is the last stage in the bay area. reporting live here in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> it is amazing the distances they go. >> true road warriors out there.
