following breaking news out of baltimore county... just a few hours ago... a body was found in towson. it was spotted along a trail near copper hill road. megan gilliland is live from the scene right now where the investigation is underway. good morning guys, police say the body was found in the woods along a trail. it was found around 2:30 this morning. we know it was the body of a man. but at this hour... police are not releasing any more details. we don't know how the man died... or even if
6:30 am
it is suspicous. what i can tell you is... that baltimore county police... are still on the scene here... searching for clues... trying to piece things together here. i'm megan gilliland, fox45 morning news. a california man accused of running a secret website that sold more than a billion dollars in illegal drugs in services.... is charged in federal court in baltimore. f-b-i agents arrested 29 year old ross ulbricht in san francisco on tuesday. they say he ran
6:31 am
a website called "silk road"... which allowed people to anonymously buy drugs and hire hitmen. he didn't enter a plea on any of the charges when he appeared in court wednesday... and his bail hearing is set for tomorrow. it's now the third day of the government shutdown. some 800- thousand federal employees are out of work and there's no telling when they'll return as lawmakers from both parties cannot come to an agreement. last night, president obama met with congressional leaders at the white house, trying to put an end to the budget battle that sparked the government shutdown. the meeting ended without a resolution. and afterwards, the finger pointing continued. rep. john boehner / (r-oh) speaker of the house "we sent four different proposals over to our democrat colleagues in the senate, they rejected all of them." nancy pelosi / house minority leader: "i can only conclude that they wanted to shut down government, that they think that that has a purpose for them." republicans and democrats alike say the
6:32 am
shutdown could last for two weeks or more. and one financial analyst says the failure of both sides coming to terms will likely leave a negative impact on the u-s economy. federal workers are filing for unemployment benefits. maryland's department of labor says it received 4- thousand unemployment claims from federal workers on tuesday alone. that's more than the state usually receives all year from federal workers. as part of the government shutdown... the obama administration told the u-s parks department to close off access to all the memorials in washington d-c. but after a group of veterans made news for crossing the barriers at the world war 2 memorial ... the republican national committee... is offering to pay to keep it open. that's not right and we all know that that's just not fair. so i've come here to announce that that the republican national committee has put aside enough money to hire five security personnel full-time
6:33 am
to keep the world war ii memorial open for veterans and visitors across this country. the democratic national committee quickly responded to the r-n-c's offer....calling it a "stunt." problems continue this morning... on maryland's obamacare website. open enrollment began two days ago... but the site still says that there are technical difficulties. ((ad lib)) we sent emails and left calls with several members of the maryland health connection to find out when it would be back up, but our calls were not returned. four illinois sheriff's deputies are in hot water over a strip search that was caught on camera. a surity camera shows
6:34 am
what happened to 32-year-old dana holmes after she was arrested for d- u-i in may. during a routine pat down, something was said to trigger an angry response from the deputies. the three men.. and one woman... force holmes to the ground....carry her by her arms and legs into a jail cell... and strip her naked.... leaving her with nothing but a blanket. holmes is now suing the county. her lawyer says she was humliated and degraded. ekl says: "she was laying on the floor, she was crying. she couldn't understand why this was happening. they're in there stripping her naked, and at the same time, an unlimited number of other deputies had the ability to just view what was going on." holmes wants the deputies fired. her lawyer says only an officer of the same gender is allowed to strip search an inmate after getting permission from a supervisor and only in a secluded area. coming up... now there's a legitimate excuse to indulge. the helath benefits... of beer.

starting january first, just about everyone in the u-s will be required to have health insurance. consumer reports finds most people are confused about how the new law affects them. but as i found out... help is available. ever since he retired, mark yurqiw has bought his own insurance. but he says the premiums keep going up, and it gets harder to
6:50 am
understand what's actually covered. (sot: mark yurqiw) "it's a terrible situation to be in, not knowing what you're going to have to pay for something, and there's no limit to what you could be paying for it." like mark, about one in five americans buys individual health insurance or is completely uninsured. under the new health care law, they'll find an entirely new way of choosing and purchasing insurance. starting october first, each state will have a kind of virtual insurance store, or martketplace. there, you can compare plans and learn whether you qualify for financial assistance. (sot) "if your current plan is really expensive or excludes a lot of services, you may find you qualify for a better plan at a lower cost on your state's marketplace." but not everyone needs to shop for new insurance. (sot: nancy metcalf) "most americans already have insurance, either through someone's job or through a government program like medicare or medicaid. they probably won't have to do anything, but it never hurts to check." to find out what you need to do, consumer reports has designed a free online tool called the
6:51 am
health law helper. first, answer some simple questions like "what age will you be on january first?" "how many people are in your family?" and "what is your family's yearly income?" then click to get your results. (sot: nancy metcalf) "you'll learn what options you have to help you comply with the law. and you'll get information about the next steps to take." mark yurqiw hopes he'll finally be able to cut his health care costs. the health care tool from consumer reports is available at health law helper dot org. consumer reports notes this year only, you'll have until the end of march to purchase insurance through the marketplace. americans aren't buying as many cars as they used to. automakers sold just over a million vehicles last month, that's down four-point-two percent from the same time last year. general motors is still on top, despite an 11 percent drop in sales. japan's big automakers... toyota, honda and nissan all saw a drop in sales in september
6:52 am
compared to last year. a negative analyst report and a fiery crash of one of its vehicles sends automaker tesla's stocks falling. an auto website posted photographs from a reader showing a fully electric tesla model s on fire near seattle. tesla stocks then dropped six percent. the automaker issued a statement saying the car hit a large metallic object in the road igniting a fire in the car's battery pack. coming up in our 7 o'clock hour... are you one of the 25 percent of homes that has a smoke detector.. that doesn't work. what you can do today to make sure your family is safe. and... what it is about this gift card... that's never been done before. plus... a shocking encounter caught on camera. what one doctor did.. that landed him behind bars. you're watching fox 45 morning news.. all local.. all morning.

showdown continues for the third day.. and there's no sign of budging on either side of the aisle in congress. for the first time since the government shutdown, congressional leaders met face-to-face with president obama at the white house wednesday night... both sides emerging with no deal and no signs of progress to end the stalemate. the president reiterated one more time tonight that he will not egotiate. we're through playing these little games. we have a situation right now where if john boehner, the speaker of the house, puts a bill on the floor to reopen the government at current funding levels, so that we can then negotiate on a real budget that allows us to stop governing from crisis to crisis, it would pass. republicans still demanding president obama accept a delay to his signature health care program. but the president says.. he's not giving in. he says he will discuss budgetary issues like taxes, spending and entitlement reform.. if house republicans first agree to
