[ drumming ] >> it's almost like a home base here right you know and there's nothing wrong with it you know where we take care of each other you know where we bring our pets right? >> reporter: for san rafael's homeless boyd memorial park is the preferred spot to spend the day, benches, bathroom and it is a public space.
>> if we have a roof whether we do not have a roof it's the same rights as -- as -- as people who come here with their children. >> just like anybody else sitting down having something to eat or reading or just, you know, enjoying the sunshine. >> reporter: but not every person who uses this park treats it like their own home. >> people that make fires here. >> reporter: that fire was in this building which the city tries to keep locked. and the problems don't end with the fire. >> exchange of narcotics. use of narcotics. and folks doing things that are just not allowed in public parks. >> reporter: there have also been broken windows at the park's closest neighbor the marin history museum. >> it seems to be, i don't know if the -- perhaps more populated is the word i'm looking for. >> reporter: so next week, at the direction of the mayor, this park will be closed, fenced off for at least 30 days. >> i think it is a really good start in cleaning up the park.

exotic dark hayward woman covered with very distinctive tatoos. >> at that point we realized that's our person. that's who we're going after. >> reporter: the investigators dug into hayes' digital live and the trail led to a dating website and that tattooed woman. her name, alix tichelman a 26- year-old aspiring model. do you think alix tichelman knew that forrest hayes was dying right there in front of her? >> i don't see how she didn't know. >> reporter: and investigators would soon learn that this was not the first person tichelman was involved with who died of a drug overdose. >> is this woman a cold-blooded killer? >> she is a killer. and she certainly was cold. >> reporter: that is not how tichelman's defense team see it is. >> alix tichelman did nothing that mr. hayes did not want mer to do. two adults engaged in mutual and cooperative drug usage. and it went wrong. but it was an accident. >> earlier today we had the
chance to speak with the 48 hours reporter. she described what some of the surveillance video shows. >> we do see forrest hayes a willing participant take his cell phone, turn the light on and show alix tichelman, you know, to help her find the best vein. she injects the heroin. and according to prosecutors, he slumps over and then she very casually and very calculated and controlled manner walks around the boat for a full 7 minutes, kind of wiping off her glass and trying to pick up her paraphernalia. if you have defense attorneys, they will spin it and say that, no, this is a woman who is clearly in panic. it's not obvious that forrest hayes is in distress but this is a woman who is trying to, you know, get off the boat. >> you can watch the full 48 hours story kiss of death and the google exec tomorrow night at 10:00 on kpix 5. expensive wine stolen in a bay area heist. now found on the other side of the country. but police are still trying to find out how it got there and

people were dying of measles. >> reporter: children under one are especially vulnerable because they can't be vaccinated yet. more than 30 babies in alameda county are being kept in isolation during the outbreak because they might have come close to one measles patient. others can't be vaccinated for medical reasons. then there's the group that chooses to obtain what's called personal belief exemptions which allows them to legally keep their child unvaccinated. that handcuffs schools and public health agencies who want everyone vaccinated. >> i like to think of people who live in santa clara county as community-minded, right? i get vaccinated because i am protecting my family. i'm protecting my neighbors. i'm protecting my community. >> reporter: today the santa clara county office of education and public health department sent a letter asking parents to check theirs and their children's immunity. that's the best they can do, they say. christian hartnett, kpix 5. >> for advice on adult and

strange january we're having. so super dry, spring-like conditions and, you know, ther is first will love it because usually -- surfers will love it because usually they are freezing. >> reporter: the national weather service says beaches from sonoma to monterey will have large swells and riptides cautioning people to stay off the rocks due to the possibility of sneaker waves which could come up fast and sweep people into the water. air temperatures are expected to be about 75 to 80 degrees on the coast warmer than many summer days. at pillar point, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> good reminder. be careful when you're in the water especially this weekend because it is you know -- [ simultaneous speakers ] >> like hawaii. >> the weather is going to be nice. it's not going to be look tropical conditions. >> not like hawaii. >> it's great for january but i still don't know if you want to go in your skivvies down to the beach. we're wimps when it comes to cold weather as we know all being in california. outside now mostly clear skies. the numbers not bad, mostly in the 60s. as we look at sfo, now about an hour after sunset. highs today all the way up to

suntan there but a stroll along the beach certainly sounds nice all weekend long. mid-70s for some inland locations saturday and sunday. right around the bay we'll be near 70 degrees. monday is nice, too. tuesday and wednesday, there's the potential for -- we're certainly going to cloud up and there's the potential that we could get a little bit of rain but nothing that's going to open the door to something that's coming in after this. so it's just a -- it's anemic. january has been a huge disappointment. >> more in december. >> this was supposed to be historically the rainiest month of the year and didn't happen. s we'll see. we are in the middle of winter and across the country boat shows are going on. >> yeah, including san francisco. coming up, why more people may be

lower gas prices. >> people do have more money. you don't spend on luxury items unless you have excess cash. >> i think it will be more business for the marinas and boat companies. >> reporter: this boat dealer says he has seen a pickup in business since prices at the pump dropped. >> now we have more people coming into boating. >> what's happening you're seeing that? >> we are seeing that. we are seeing that this particular product is brand- new. we have more interest in the first day than last year. >> reporter: he believes sales are stay strong even if gas prices creep back up. alison harmelin for cbs news, new york. >> it would be fun. >> looks very pretty. coming up in our next half- hour, expensive wine stolen from napa now found. what led investigators to north carolina to get the bottles back. >> "deflate-gate" distracting players. what tom brady's teammates are saying about the nfl controversy involving underinflated footballs. >> plus, why soon you won't be
hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of expensive wine stolen in the bay area found in north carolina but tonight there are a lot of questions about how it got there. welcome back, i'm elizabeth cook. >> i'm allen martin. that cross-country trip has stumped investigators. they say an oblivious buyer has the wine but as kpix 5's ryan takeo reports some people who know the ins and outs of the industry seriously doubt that the buyer is actually in the dark. >> sounds disingenuous put it that way. >> reporter: that's because of all the media attention over the $300,000 french laundry heist. >> that amount of wine of that particular producer would raise a lot of eyebrows. >> reporter: a tip led investigators to greensboro, north carolina, about 2800 miles away from yountville's famed restaurant. investigators recovered most of the wine there. one wine dealer says it is conceivable the buyer put their face in a shade -- faith in a shady middleman but seems odd the broker would give the one
buyer so much of the stolen wine. yesterday kpix 5 broke the news of a half dozen other similar high-end heists in the bay area the past couple of years like at prima in walnut creek. napa county investigators confirmed they are working with other jurisdictions on a possible connection. while the other victims hope for a similar outcome. >> we would like to get our wine back. i wonder if any of our wines that we lost in our robbery wonder where they went. >> reporter: ryan takeo, kpix 5. >> investigators have not made any arrests in that case by the way. bird rescue teams are working with volunteers to find birds coated with goo all around the bay. bird recovery will continue at least for the next couple of weeks. so far, officials say, 322 birds have been taken in by the international bird rescue. 275 are still alive. 151 have died. officials still do not know
what that mystery substance is. the nfl says it will get to the bottom of what's being called "deflate-gate." the use of underinflated footballs by the new england patriots in their afc championship win. omar villafranca reports players call it a distraction. >> reporter: the national football league says it has conducted nearly 40 interviews over the past few days trying to get to the bottom of "deflate-gate." the new england patriots are accused of cheating during sunday's afc championship game after 11 of 12 patriots game balls were found to be two pounds under the nfl's required air pressure. the nfl said while the evidence thus far supports the conclusion that footballs that were underinflated were used by the patriots in the first half, the footballs were properly inflated for the second half and confirmed at the conclusion of the game to have remained properly inflated. >> i didn't alter the ball in any way. >> reporter: tom brady and bill
belichick said thursday they had no explanation. a defensive lineman said it's a distraction leading up to the super bowl. >> everybody in the locker room is excited to play this game. we need to be. we're be. so, um, we are not going to take that away from us. you can't take our joy away from us. >> reporter: the colts who lost to the pats had little to say about it. >> it's obviously like i told all you guys where the league stands that's where that's at. >> reporter: the league has still more interviews to do and evidence to examine before it wraps up the investigation. the super bowl is just nine days away. omar villafranca, cbs news. >> the meanwhile, there's trouble for tom brady's high school football team. serra high in san mateo has been banned from the play-offs for two years because the team decided not to play in a consolation game last month. the head coach said he was worried about putting players at risk of injury. but the ccs commissioner says the team failed to fulfill its commitment to an opponent.
vice president joe biden is in california pitching the president's free community college plan. he stopped for a roundtable with some dental students in culver city. that plan would provide up to 2 years of free tuition if students met certain requirements. the vice president quoted his wife who teaches at a community college in northern virginia. >> keeps telling everybody the best kept secret in america is the community college system and, um, the other expression she's used is that any country that out-educates us will out- compete us. >> as many as 9 million students nationwide could benefit from the president's plan. it's estimated it would cost $60 billion over 10 years. the obama administration is backtracking after an outcry over consumer privacy on healthcare.gov. the administration made changes to the website to scale back the release of personal consumer information to private companies. third party analytic sites were receiving personal data like
