>> this will history from the youngest rider on a snowboarder. >> my goodness, ladies and gentlemen, take off your hats and throw them on the ground. that was insane! >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, president trump is expected to meet with british prime minister theresa may in about two hours. our major garrett reports the president will have phone calls tomorrow with russian president vladimir putin, german chancellor angela merkel and french president francois hollande. but a meeting with mexico's president is now canceled cause disagreements over immigration and the president's plan to build a border wall. the trump administration is considering a tax on imports from mexico to pay for the
bayer. one week after the inauguration a new poll shows 53% of americans are optimistic about the next four years. it also finds 81% of republicans approve of president trump. 77% of democrats disapprove. major garrett is at the white house for the president's first full week in washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. from the white house perspective it was a busy and productive week. by the end of the week, the hazards of moving too fast were all too visible. the white house had to retract its own statements about how to pay for a border wall, cancel an event to into motion an investigation into voter fraud and the official release about the visit of theresa may misspelled her name. file it under growing pains. president trump said his campaign promises mean something and the republican-led congress should comply. >> i'm going to keep as many as i can. politics is tough. sometimes you make a promise and for some reason you can't because you have opinion situation on the other side that
raises their hand and make it impossible. >> reporter: the question about how to pay for a wall on the southern border is already getting complicated. >> the wall is necessary. that's not just politics. a proper wall, not like the little toy wall. >> reporter: mr. trump's push led mexican president enrique pena nieto to cancel the visit to the white house next week. mexico has said repeatedly it won't pay for the wall. >> unless mexico is going to eae uts states fairly with spect, such a meeting would be fruitless, and i want to go a different route. >> reporter: in the face of the standoff, the administration bundled its first effort to explain how mexico would pay. it floated the idea of a tax on products mexico sells in the u.s. >> our country's policy is to tax exports and let imports flow freely in which is ridiculous.
>> 20% import tax. keep in mind there's 160 other countries that do just this. >> reporter: later in an off-camera meeting spicer said the tax could range from 5% to 20%. chief of staff reince priebus said it was one of a buff they of options. today's meeting with the british prime minister was set in motion when senior adviser steve bannon and trump's son-in-law jared kushner learned how nationalist trump would be on economic matters. that led the prime minister to accelerate the pace of britain's withdraw from the european union and come here seeking a free trade agreement with the trump white house. >> that's interesting. thank you very much, major. the white house pulled back from the idea of an import tax after questioning from members of congress. more than $270 billion of goods were imported from mexico to the u.s. in 2016. a 20% tax on those imports would
raise more than $50 billion in tax revenue. some lawmakers say consumers would have to pay the difference. republican senator lindsey graham tweeted this. simply put, any policy proposal which drives up the cost of krone, tequila or margaritas is a big-time bad idea. mucho sad. >> then we'll see what kellyanne conway says. she's counsel to the president and with us from the white house briefing room. good morning. >> good morning. >> give us the three best ideas you have for first paying for the wall and then getting mexico to pay you back. >> well, donald trump made this a centerpiece of his campaign. it's largely how he got elected, charlie, he'll build a wall. issued an executive order this week to start construction of the wall on our southern border and to have mexico pay for it. >> i know at's the goal. i'm asking how -- give us the specifics of what you're thinking about so we can understand. >> there are several things.
as sean spicer and reince priebus said yesterday, one possibility is to tax the imports from mexico from 5% to 20%. that's one option on the table. as we discussed last week together, it could be congressional funding that's then reimbursed by mexico. we have a $60 billion trade deficit every year with mexico. nafta was a bad idea from the beginning for americans and for the american worker. donald trump has promised to put america first and that won't change. it certainly won't change with respect to our relationship with mexico. >> wouldn't mexico retaliate with a tariff on american goods flowing in and wouldn't that cost jobs in america? >> possibly -- they can do what they want, charlie. here is the fact. the number one source of income into mexico are mexicans working here and sending the money back. that's why repatriation of funds is also a very big piece of president trump's vision for this country and how to really balance out and make more fair to america, americans, american
workers, our interest in allies, all these trade deals that are imbalanced. we just have to have people and drugs pour over the border. we have a sovereign nation that spends billions of dollars trying to help other countries protect its borders. it's high time we do the same for america. >> kelly ann, why should mexico pay for a wall that they didn't ask for and clearly don't want? >> they don't want it, gayle, because they want to continue to allow people and i assume drugs, since they're not doing much to stop that, poring over our borders. we have to look over america. mexico should pay for that wall because they get an awful lot in this country, through nafta and other monetary disbursements, $60 billion trade deficit as the president noted. >> mexico just handed over the biggest drug dealer, el chapo, he's in brooklyn. >> and? okay. that's one small step. >> let me ask you, kelly ann, you are scheduled to speak at the march for life in
washington. president trump is expected to announce his choice for supreme court next week. will he appoint a supreme court justice that will repeal vo v wade? >> donald trump promised as a candidate in that unbelievable, impassioned defense of life in that debate against hillary clinton that he would appoint pro life justices to the united states supreme court and also really did something that very few republicans ever do effectively. he turned around who is really extreme on abortion argument to hillary clinton saying you would rip a baby out of the womb an hour before its birth. that's extreme. i'm proud to stand and march with the pro life people today. we're making history in the fact that vice president pence will be first vice president to ever address the march. this is a pro life administration. it's high time we say to ourselves if we don't protect and promote the culture of life, who are we as a nation? >> we heard that president trump is going to be speaking with
vladimir putin tomorrow. what is the purpose of that conversation? what do you hope will come out of that? >> as you can see, beginning with prime minister may's visit to the white house today, the president continues to talk to leaders of foreign nations. that's what presidents do. i assume they will discuss the interest of their respective countries, how to com together and work togetr on issues where you can find common ground and where these two nations could maybe defeat radical islamic terrorism. that's a growing and nagging concern in this country. people don't feel secure. they do feel it's on the advance. >> who initiated the call, kelly ann? >> i won't divulge that. it doesn't matter in that we have to forge better relationships around the globe. >> kellyanne conway, good to see you. >> thank you. >> kelly ann will speak at today's march for life an anti-abortion rally. vice president mike pence expected to address the gathering. marchers will walk a mile and a half to the supreme court.
jan crawford is outside the court to show us why this year's march carries extra significance. good morning. >> reporter: good month morning. when tens of thousands of protest evers make their way here, they'll protest the 1973 decision that the constitution guarantee the woman's right to an abortion. for prospective nominees, taking that position publicly at any point in their lives can be disqualifying. >> every year since roe v. wade, they've come to protest. >> we'll pick a truly great supreme court justice. >> reporter: now with president trump filling a supreme court vacancy, anti-abortion advocates hope he'll nominate a justice like the late antonin scalia who believed roe should be overturned. >> the justices i ap point will be pro life. >> reporter: for william pryor, outspoken opposition to abortion as alabama's attorney general,
pushed him to the bottom of mr. trump's short liss zblt you said on several occasions that roe v. wade is, quote, the worst abomination of the history of constitutional law. a, do you believe that as of right now? >> i do. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news pryor's nomination is unlikely after senate republicans warped ability a repeat of his 2003 appeals court confirmation fight. >> i believe that not only is the case unsupported by the text and structure of the constitution, but it has led to a morally wrong result. it has led to the slaughter of millions of innocent, unborn children. that's my personal belief. >> reporter: for two years democrats blocked pryor's confirmation. >> if you stake out a pro life position, many in washington view that as an automatic
disqualifier. >> reporter: attorney jay seculo is n expert on religious liberty. >> if you take a pro choice position, no one says anything. >> reporter: trump is focused on anotr jue with working class background, thomas hardiman. he's been less vocal about his personal views. >> our role as judges is to interpret the law. >> reporter: still on the very short list for the supreme court is judge neil gorsuch. but he could be a leading pick for trump's second speech when justice anthony kennedy retires which is expected soon. for the protesters arriving later today, a big question is why, if you've ever spoken out about abortion, you're automatically out of the running for the court. >> a very good question. thank you very much, jan. one of america's ten most populated counties will go along with new policies targeting undocumented immigrants. the decision by miami-dade, florida, follows president trump's executive order threatening to take federal
funds away from cities and counties that protect people from deportation. the president tweeted in support. david begnaud has more from the county's mayor on that. >> reporter: you may have heard big city mayors railing against president trump's order on immigration. here in miami-dade says he doesn't want to lose millions in federal funding and following the order is simple. under mounting pressure from the trump administration, miami-dade county, which is the largest county in florida, adjusted its detention policy for illegal immigrants to comply with orders from washington. in a three-paragraph memo issued thursday, republican mayor carlos jimenez ordered jails in miami-dade county to order all immigration detainer requests received from the department of homeland security. >> we said we wouldn't hold them unless guaranteed we'd get reimbursed. today my order says, don't worry
about the guarantee, if the federal government wants us to hold the individual, illegal immigrant, et cetera, we will hold them for the federal government. >> reporter: he says the decision was financial. he said the couy decliepd toholr which would have cost miami-dade county about $52,000, but that number pales in comparison to the $355 million in federal funds that miami-dade is expecting this year. >> i didn't want to put at risk the millions of dollars that the federal government gives to miami-dade county every year. >> reporter: president trump signed the executive order wednesday. it then threatens to cut federal funding to cities who don't comply. >> i'm here to say that, again, i believe in our sanctuary city status. >> reporter: democratic mayors in some of the nation's largest cities are vowing to fight the trump administration. >> i want to say directly to anyone who feels threatened today or vulnerable, you are
safe in boston. >> i'm losing to lose every single penny to protect those people. >> reporter: back here in miami-dade county, the mayor says he's not about to send his police out to become an immigration force and start rounding people up. here is what can happen. if you're in this county el lily and get arrested on an unrelated charge and go to the county jail, you could stay there indefinitely until immigration authorities come to pick you up. >> a texas family wants a police officer who forcefully arrested them to be held accountable. body camera video shows officer william martin push jacqueline craig to the ground. he then handcuffed her and the two daughters. the video has not an ugt en kated by police. all three were charged with resisting arrest. those charges were dropped. she called for help after a neighbor allegedly assaulted her son. omar villafranca has more.
>> reporter: the body cam footage from officer william martin shows him wrestling ja jacqueline craig to the ground and pointing what appears to be a taser into her back. >> you're going to jail, too. >> reporter: it also shows martin arresting craig's 15-year-old daughter. >> bet back or you're going to jail, too. >> reporter: pushing away another young girl and apparently using his foot to push the teenager in his patrol car. >> get in the car! >> the officer was responsible for this attack on a family when they called for help. >> you're going to jail, too. >> reporter: the video also shows officer martin arresting craig's other daughter who was recording the incident. martin was given a ten-day suspension without pay and he'll face no additional charges. >> we're not going to retroactively, unless we found something new, investigate anything else related to this offense. >> reporter: this all started last month when craig accused a neighbor of grabbing and choking her son after the 7-year-old
allegedly littered in the man's yard. >> why don't you teach him not to litter? >> he hasn't proved to me that my son littered. it doesn't matter if he did or didn't. it doesn't give him the right to put his hands on him? >> why not. >> the neighbor accused of assaulting jacqueline craig's son was issued a citation for misdemeanor assault. we reached out to both officer martin and the neighbor but have not heard back. the ceo of epipen says the public outcry over a massive price hike was unfair. ahead, heather bresch explains what health care changes her,,

square foot manufacturing plant in morgantown, waf waf. >> have you ever allowed someone like me in here before? >> no. we've never allowed national media. we've never focused on mylan from an external point of view. now we feel it's time to tell the mylan story. >> our premise is to provide access. >> last year heather bresch was called before congress to explain why the price of the pen sword from more than $100 in 2009 to more than $600 in 2016. >> they use a simple but corrupt business model. >> i'm not asking you a question. this is what you have done. >> did you sort of realize that of a being crushed on capitol hill? >> let's just say i think a lot of misinformation and people had no idea, very uninformed about who mylan is, one out of every 13 prescriptions, we're in everybody's medine cabit.
>> you can ask just about anybody, they say the price of drugs is too high. >> i agree with them. >> epinephrine, the drug inside each epipen injector costs just a couple dollars, but the design is what's added to the price tag. >> why did the price of epipen increase 500% over the past decade? >> because we realized there was an unmet need. we made a conscious decision, the board, we put a business plan together to invest to build public awareness and access. we're now in over 70,000 schools across america. we've donated more than 800,000 free epipen. remember that price incorporates the entire supply chain, but it was that investment over the last eight years that would allow us to reach patients and save lives. >> you're saying that because you wanted to make it more accessible it had to get more expensive? >> yes. that price went up because we were making investment, about a billion over the last decade that we invested in the product,
that we could reach physicians and educate legislatures. but then you also invest in the supply chain to make sure that, you know, employers, employees, that everyone has access to have our medicine. last year 90% of epipen patients paid less than $50 for epipen. >> but the list price is $600. >> yes. which is why i've said that, if epip needed to be a catalyst to show the system is broken, then so be it. >> i don't have to tell you because you witnessed it in congress, but there's a lot of patients at home who say it's pharmaceutical companies like mylan that are the ones getting rich. >> absolutely, and i understand that. that's why i said i get the outrage because it is so complicated and so complex. the only face you see on that medicine is the pharmaceutical manufacturer, where in reality there's at least five entities touching that product. >> bresch says for every $608
epipen two-pack, mylan receives $274. the remaining $334 go to other players in the supply chain, middlemen including pharmacy benefit managers or pbms. the president of the national association representing america's pbms says mylan sans out for its refusal to accept responsibility for its own high prices. pbms which reduce prescription drug costs by 30% are part of the solution. >> president trump has said that pharma is going to now have to address the high drug prices. he's demanding change. >> i couldn't agree with him more, and i'm looking forward to it. i think if we've ever had a moment in time or administration that is willing to be disruptive, think president trump has shown that he is willing to make tough decisions, hard decisions, but right
decisions. >> so you would support the change in the law that would allow the u.s. government to negotiate drug prices for medicare and medicaid? >> no, i don't know that that's the answer. what i would support is that we look holistically at how pharmaceutical pricing is done today and what is the best way to make it market driven and give transparency to the patient walking up to the counter that they know what they're buying. >> so who are your allies in this effort to fix the system, the pricing sis snem. >> it's going to be a coalition of a lot of interesting groups, employers. employers are frustrated. employers know their health care bill is going up and up. and they're hearing from their employees dealing with these soaring deductibles. i think the administration is going to be an ally. i hope every mom out there is an ally. as i said, i can't do this alone, and i don't have all the answers, but what i can tell you is i'm going to work tirelessly to get the right information and to strive for that transparency
that's much needed in the system and to make sure that patients can have the medicine they need. >> mylan introduced a generic injector in response to criticism it sells for $300, that's half the price of the epipen. she makes a really interesting point, too, which is -- i know this from my own experience, we're noticing the high cost of drugs now because we have higher deductibles. in my own health care plan i have a $5,000 deductible. i've gone to pay for a procedure or pay for drugs, wow, this is so much more expensive. i used to just pay the $10 co-pay. under the new administration they're talking about larger hsa accounts. i think this is going to spark a huge debate. she's calling for transparency. nobody else wants transparency. >> do you take her at face value, that she genuinely wants to see change and transparency? >> i do. i think it's very easy to mall line a company very quickly over one product. it's harder for all of us as journalists understand it's the whole system.
everyone is taking a cut of this system. there's transparency in an over-the-counter drug, right? there's no transparency in pharmaceuticals. more and more of us are getting older. we're using more medications to live longer. >> i can see patients looking at that -- i'm not doubting her sincerity -- as a patient, why do i have to pay so much? >> it's not just drugs, too. procedures cost more. the whole health care system. >> someone who had a procedure, i know what you mean. but how much does the epipen account for their entire business? >> mylan has about $10 billion in revenue, epipen is about $1 billion in that. they produce, more than 88% of the companies produced are generic drugs. if you look in your medicine cabinet, it's probably a mylan drug. we'll post the interview with heather bresch. we'll post it on

good morning. it is friday, so let's head out to your morning commute. get to you work on time. into marin county southbound 101 at freitas parkway this is a two-car crash. it's off to the shoulder. but that delay remains there. you're driving at just 13 miles an hour and the backups well beyond highway 37 so give yourself extra time through the area but if you are traveling alg the golden gate brid look at that looking good into san francisco on that end and "friday light" commences here. looking good heading into downtown from the bay bridge. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. where did everybody go? there's no traffic out there. i think they are all heading in the opposite directions towards tahoe! hi, everybody, morning! we have bright sunshine a few high, thin clouds. unlimited visibility, high pressure building in, temperatures 30s and 40s. later today mostly sunny skies variable wind to 10. temperatures topping off into the 50s from the coast to the inland areas.
good morning to our viewers. it is friday, january 27, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including brave reporting of holly williams. and now she is here in studio 57. we will ask her about covering refugee crisis. here is today's eye opener at 8:00. >> it was a busy and productive week. by the end of the week the hazards of moving too fast were all too visible. >> donald trump needed center piece of his campaign. he will build a wall. >> why should mexico pay for a
wall that they didn't ask for and they clearly don't want? >> they don't want it because they want to continue to allow people and drugs pouring over our borders. >> protesters make their way here later today protesting the 1973 decision that the constitution guaranteed a woman's right to abortion. >> why did price of epipen increase? >> we realize there was an unmet need. >> this is going to spark a huge debate. she is calling for transparency. >> elon musk says he has a plan to alleviate our terrible traffic problem here. he says he wants to dig a tunnel for cars to go in and today he named his chief tunnel engineer. this guy's name is -- >> that was good. he does know something?
>> i'm charlie rose. president trump meets today with teresa may. he was supposed to meet next week with mexico's president but mr. trump tweeted yesterday if mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting. >> he said repeatedly that mexico will not pay. president trump talked about the funding issue. >> we're working on a tax reform bill that will reduce our trade deficits, increase american exports and generate revenue for mexico that will pay for the wall if we decide to go that route. >> white house press secretary sean spicer said 20% tax will generate enough money. he said any tariff could range from 5% to 20%. chief of staff told reporters a 20% tax is part of a buffet of
options. republicans are back in washington after discussing their agenda at their party retreat. the president called on members to approve funding for mexico border wall. some republicans are not falling in line. nancy cord s is on capitol hill this morning. >> good morning. those republican lawmakers welcome the president warmly, respectfully if not -- this fixation on a few major has made them a bit nervous about the four-year relationship they are entering even as they celebrate the massive new leverage. >> in philadelphia president trump favors his party's new power with republican lawmakers. >> this congress is going to be the busiest congress we have had in decades, maybe ever. >> reporter: he urged them to send them bills he can sign, bills to lower taxes and fund infrastructure projects. >> enough all talk no action.
we have to deliver. >> reporter: republican leaders try to lower expectations. >> we don't want to set arbitrary deadlines on things. we want to get things right. >> reporter: and they want guidance from the president. how he plans to make mexico pay for his proposed border wall which leaders say will cost $12 billion to $15 billion. >> i don't see any circumstance in which mexicans are going to pay. there has been talk about tariffs. tariffs are taxes. >> reporter: gop lawmakers were relieved that the president didn't bring up topics like inaugural crowd size or torture. >> torture is real torture. waterboarding is i'm sure not pleasant. waterboarding was just short of torture. when you know all of a sudden
they made -- >> reporter: his party is not interested in relitigating what is torture and what isn't. >> is this a debate that your members want to have? >> i believe virtually are comfortable with the state of the law on the issue now. >> and torture is illegal. we agree with it not being legal. >> reporter: there was immediate pushback from republican senators yesterday at this notion of a 20% import tax on good coming from countries like mexico, this idea floated by the white house. those republican senators argue that that tax will simply be passed on to american consumers in the form of higher prices. >> thanks. john dickerson talks to john mccain here on cbs. holly williams was one of the first network journalists in iraq to report on the rise of
isis. sh she spent more than a decade reporting on dangerous zones. her reporting earned her a number of awards. this week she accepted the columbia university award on behalf of cbs news. holly joins us at the table. we can tell you congratulations in person. >> bravo. >> thank you. very proud of our team. >> we are glad you are here. president trump made it clear he is cracking down on immigration on countries where terrorism is born. what does this mean to syrian refugees? >> i guess if you are one of the syri syrian refugees hoping to come to the u.s. it is devastating because that is the future you were hoping to have. let's remember that the bigger picture is that america has taken so few syrian refugees. last year -- think about
countries in the middle east. around 3 million in turkey. a million in jordan. it certainly sends a signal about how america faces the problem. the bigger picture is that it is a drop in the ocean. >> you have been on the ground. today president trump makes his first visit to the pentagon as commander in chief. he is going to be signing a directive through his defense secretary saying to strike more aggressively towards isis. what more can u.s. forces do? >> america can do things very differently. america could send a ground troop but america hasn't done that because it doesn't want to get bogged down in a war in the middle east. i think we have heard -- >> when they say strike harder what does that mean? >> i would like to ask that question, as well. we repeatedly heard president trump say he was going to bomb the hell out of isis.
my question is what does that actually mean? i have been inside the u.s. command center in iraq. america is bound by international law. it has to try to avoid killing civilians. that process of seeing a target and then decidinghether or not it is safe, whether or not you are putting civilians at risk that can take hours. that is not going to change with the new administration. >> what is the impact of syria and turkey bombing isis? >> bombing isis, turkey bombing isis? >> they come together as you know. >> i think turkey sends mixed signals whether it is ready to tolerate president bashar al assad or ready to do a deal there. it's difficult to really understand what turkey's position is. certainly turkey moves closer to russia but so many players in syria. even if turkey changed position
there is saudi arabia, qatar and u.s. the guy with the guns on the ground inside syria who have always said they cannot tolerate bashar al assad staying in power. >> it is a feeling that we should be doing more in the middle east. what does it say to you? >> so hard to generalize about the middle east. it is such a diverse region. there are people who say they would like america to strike isis. there are other people who say we just want america to leave the middle east, to end its involvement in this region. >> what about what is happening? where is isis now in iraq and how far have the advances been made? >> i had thought that the iraqi army was bogged down, tat they chipped away at isis and we weren't going to see anything happen. i was wrong because it now looks
as though the iraqi forces have taken back most of eastern mosul. isis is still dug in. several hundred thousand civilians, we don't know how many thousand fighters get work. i think we can assume that they are going to fight to their death there. >> you get access to the men and you get access to the women and you get the complete story as a female reporter in the middle east. >> thank you for joining us. really great to have you here. arm chair detectives could be critical in solving a mysterious cold case. >> 48 hours. the wife of a real estate developer is found brutally murdered. there are some tantalizing clues. a sketch and a cut and paste letter. maybe you can help solve this

in georgia has left law enforcement stumped. they found little evidence at the scene and now they're turning to public for help. on tomorrow's "48 hours" erin moriarty investigates the clues so maybe you can investigate the case. >> why are you talking to me? >> i want to find out who murdered my sister. >> reporter: in 2008 pam's
sister was brutally murdered inside her atlanta home. kay was the why of hal wenno, a successful real estate developer. and at the age of 60 she was still turning heads the way she always did. >> gorgeous, wasn't she. full of life. a little sweetheart. >> reporter: everyone seemed lo which makes her murder more perplexing. >> how can this be solved? >> i think it can. >> i think it's right over in this area is where the first encounter happened. >> reporter: investigators believe kay led her murderer inside her home. she immediately ran the kitchen and he her.
>> i ev kay's hall ad an alibi and there was no indication that kay was having an affair. all police had was this. a sketch of a stranger seen in the wenals' ig. a neighbor described to police a man he saw the day before the murder and on the very afternoon kay was killed. >> and he sees the same guy walking toward wenals' house right about the time they believed that the homicide occurred. >> reporter: and then nearly three months after kay was killed, police were handed another clue, both tantalizing and perplexing. an expletive filled cut-and-paste letter. >> he said, she left me. that was a lie too. i told her this would happen. >> reporter: former fbi profiler mary o'toole agreed to examine
the letter for us and says in her experience writers of cut and paste-notes tend to be women. >> i've seen them written by teenage girls, middle-aged women. you could have somebody who wrote the letter and somebody who came into the home. people who think they get away with murder get a big sigh of relief when years go by. but this program is going to make them very nervous. >> erin moriarty is with us. good morning. >> this is a new one formy. the cut and paste letter. this is a copy of it. >> it takes a lot of time. >> it does. all the little letters cut out. i think what's really interesting about that -- when you read it, it sounds like a woman. >> she told me she hated her house. >> here you are claiming response built for it.
it's true, she hated her house. but it's true two people were involved. charlie cringed when he heard. her throat was slit. investigators believe it was probably a male who did it, but if a woman wrote this, then there had to be two people. >> so they're asking viewers for help. they want us to do what? >> well, of course, if they remember seeing anyone cutting and pasting but also that sketch. that man who was seen in the neighborhood. >> all right. thnk you. >> thank you, erin. >> thank you so much. >> you can see erin's full report, "solve this case condition who killed kay wenal?" that's at 10:00 p.m. tomorrow, 9:00 p.m. >> how she recreated the iconic opening of the mary tyler moore show. we'll be right back.
