tv NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt NBC April 26, 2016 5:30pm-6:01pm PDT
breaking news, the polls are closed and primary results from pouring in. good evening, everyone, i'm savannah guthrie in for lester tonight. the polls closed a short time ago for all five states in tonight's primaries and in the republican race, a clean sweep for donald trump. nbc news projects trump is the winner in the connecticut primary tonight. in pennsylvania, nbc news projects trump also the winner there. nbc news also projecting trump is the winner in rhode island, trump is also
the projected winner of the maryland primary and nbc news projects that trump has won delaware as well. on the democratic side, in maryland, nbc news projects hillary clinton is the winner there, and nbc news now projecting clinton has won delaware as well. the rest of the states too early to call on the democratic side. we have got it all covered tonight. we'll start with tonight's gop battle and katikatie? >> reporter: the trump campaign saying they wanted to wake up tomorrow with 80 delegates. even polling above 50% in a number of those states. once again he won with those who are angry, those who say they are tired of washington, those who want change. but keep a close eye on pennsylvania, so far donald trump has won 17 delegates there, but there are 54 unbound delegates, those are free agents
who can change their mind between now and the convention. donald trump wants to get a majority of those unbound delegates, get a majority of those pro trump supporters elected to those unbound positions. the unbound delegates extraordinarily important, they could make or break his chances of winning in the first ballot. those are the most important delegates in the entire country. now the campaign moves on to indiana. the campaign tells me they feel good about that and if they win there, they expect to be running a republican campaign. andrea mitchell is at hillary headquarters in philadelphia. andrea, good evening to you. >> reporter: good evening to you. hillary clinton is on her way back from indiana. she is expecting a big night here, they are very happy got the maryland win already. but she was in indiana because indiana is
expected to be a lot closer and that's where she really wants to defeat bernie sanders next week voting. sanders has already taken the stage and spoken out in west virginia. there's also been reports they plan to reassess after tonight's voting. but ted cruz said he's not going to get out of this race until the last vote is counted. he's in california on june 7 and even the district of columbia on june 14. so some confusion in the sanders camp about how to handle this going forward, but expected this night to be a very good night for hillary clinton. let's turn now to chuck todd, nbc news political director and moderator of "meet the press." chuck, we see trump with a clean sweep, does this make a
contested convention les likely? >> reporter: we always knew donald trump was going to do well in the northeast. but a solid win tonight. he entered the night about 400 delegates short of that magic number. he is going to net over 100, it looks like tonight, of the 400 he needs, going into the final five-week sprint all the way up until june 7. i can tell you this, he has a real path to get that magic number and avoid a contested convention. and it's all because ted cruz and john kasich didn't decide until 24 hours ago that they ought to split states and try to stop him in various states. if they had done this six weeks ago, maybe tonight would have been a bit different. but we're going to look back and say tonight's the night that donald trump sealed the republican nomination. >> and yet cruz and
kasich are looking to indiana next week as potentially the place where trump is stopped. >> reporter: it's a place where trump may struggle in, but still losing, he could still net some delegates out of it. but they're running out of real estate to find delegates to stop trump and that's what's going on now with cruz and kasich. >> chuck todd, thank you so much. we move on now to these nasty and dangerous storms poised to bring severe weather from north texas into nebraska. tornado watches are posted in four states. this system more potent than others who have pounded the region this spring and it could intensify tonight. >> reporter: this is the leading edge of a monster storm. threatening 70 million people tonight. in the danger zone, the forecast calls for a wild mix of baseball-sized hail,
scattered lightning, powerful winds up to 80-mile-per-hour. conditions ripe for tornadoes. at the kansas city airport, it turned ugly early, thunder, lightning and hail. day turned to night across missouri. downpours and winds causing problems. >> that is a wall of water right now. >> reporter: in oklahoma city, they're watching the sky for twisters like this. the state emergency operations center warning of explosive tornadoes tonight. schools, businesses, closing early, car dealerships hauling their inventory to cover garages. >> they told us to expect up to baseball-sized hail, that's why we have chosen to move them all indoors. >> reporter: tornado alley has already been hammered, homes ripped apart, lightning sparking house fires. tonight a 7,000 square mile area stretching from texas to nebraska in the bull's-eye. >> this is a classic severe setup, you have this dip in the jet
stream that's going to dig into the central plains. as it does so, it changes the winds at different levels in the atmosphere, this causes significant large tornadoes and also large hail. >> reporter: a dangerous night ahead for tens of millions in the plains. tonight here in oklahoma city, the steady pounding rain has arrived, the wind speeds are also picking up and lightning is racing across the sky, the thunder has been quite impressive over the last several minutes, meantime on the radar, there are several supercells in this area, forecasters say the worst is yet to come, it could be a potentially very dangerous night all across this region, savannah? >> all right, miguel, stay safe out there. some critical new clues are coming to light in the shocking mass murder of eight family members in rural ohio as the urgent man hunt continues. evidence exists that shows that --
>> reporter: with investigators from across the state working around the clock, tonight preliminary autopsy results are shedding new light to the stunning murder. one of the victims shot nine times, two victims shot five times, one of the sixths was only shot once. there was also signs of bruising, indicating a struggle. >> we're looking at multiple shooters here. multiple shots indicates someone with a motive, someone with a score to settle. >> reporter: the sign of marijuana growth found at three of the four crime scenes suggest they were not for personal use. in another twist, the attorney general's office confirms investigators have found cage s consistent with rooster breeding and cock fighting. but this woman is mourning one of her friends, one of the
youngest victims, christopher rhoden, jr. >> i don't know what he could have done to deserve this. >> reporter: dina rhoden used to visit with her children. >> i'll really misdana. >> reporter: the city has started a memorial fund to help pay for the funerals. tonight authorities won't say whether they have any suspects but are cautioning that the state's largest murder investigation in recent memory will be lengthy. there is a new twist following the sudden death of superstar prince, his sister says there was no will. now there could be a battle brewing between t his fortune and the rights. >> reporter: the mystery now hangs over his estate. hiss sister says i do not know of the existence of a will. prince had no wife or
children, and no parents have died, so if he had no will under minnesota law, his siblings are next in line. >> it will be divided into as many shares as siblings half or full. >> he had one brother, and five other half siblings. she was also a musician and one of her publicists said she and prince spoke regularly, but made a pact not to bother each other when it came to their careers. no details on the value of prince's assets, industry experts put his worth at $300 million. >> it is surprising that someone with that large of an estate does not have a plan. >> reporter: many are also word wondering what the future holds for paisley park. musicians who worked with prince believe he had a lot of unheard music locked in a
vault. >> backgrounds that we created for prince remain unreleased to this day. >> reporter: prince's reps have not commented on today's court filings. nearly seven months after a cargo ship was lost at sea, the ntsb says it has found the ship's data recorder, 15,000 feet below the surface. 34 people were on that ship. investigators hope this video can fill in some blanks. >> reporter: there on the ocean floor, the missing voyage data recorder. sitting amid the wreckage in the bahamas. elfarro was sailing from bahamas dead in the water as the storm
turned into a hurricane. >> the boat had taken on water temperature. >> teams found debris floating on the surface, but none of the 33 crewmembers survived. outraged that the crew ever left port in the face of a monster storm. >> you got to be kidding, you're on a suicide mission. >> reporter: a month later using under water cameras, the wreckage was finally found in 50 feet of water. the cr the next step for recovery teams actually bringing the data recorder to the surface. it's about the size of a basketball, capable of recording conversations on the ship's bridge, conversations that could provide clues into the sequence of events that led to el farro sinking. there's news in the business world,
