difficulty now is to locate the black box. it's not easy even though we have the tools and the system. we've deployed vessels to find the ping signal but up until now we haven't succeeded. over the weekend, jakarta's meteorologic agency said weather was most likely the trigger, though no cause can be determined fl they're able to analyze the flight recorder. meanwhile it's now been eight days and though some bodies have been recovered and identified most are still missing. at this viewing, grieving relatives mourn for 10-year-old and her mother. still waiting for the family's grandmother, grandfather, father and two other children who are still unaccounted for. and with news over the weekend that this plane wasn't even supposed to be flying from indonesia to singapore on sunday there have been consequences. indonesian authorities say they have moved the officials in charge of the take-off including air traffic controllers, to other

7:32 am
>> reporter: good morning. prince andrew is meeting with queen elizabeth today, fifth in line to the throne. civil case in florida has prompted a response from buckingham palace itself. it is a potential scandal with the power to rock the royal family. the palace is strongly and repeatedly denying that prince andrew the queen's second son, had sexual relations with a minor. any suggestion of impropriety with underage minor sincere categorically untrue one royal statement said. the queen's formal spokesman, said andrew, who cut short a ski vacation will be furious. >> he will be angry, kicking anything that comes in sight because he knows he's innocent. >> reporter: court papers filed in florida as part of a civil case against the u.s. government over their handling of the prosecution of andrew's former friend jeffrey etsy who pled guilty to soliciting prostitution in 2008. >> this was a secret deal
7:33 am
nonprosecution agreement made between eppstein and his lawyers and the united states government. >> reporter: claimed in the document that an underage girl identified as jane dough number three was forced to have sexual relations with prince andrew. and the woman claims she even met the queen. the palace denies any record of a meeting. the court papers also accuse harvard law professor alan dershowitz as having sex with the same underage woman. he says he never even met the alleged victim. there is no court case against the prince or dershowitz but the proceedings -- >> there will be multiple investigations and multiple cases. so this is something that we need to see play out. it's going to play out over a number of years. >> reporter: now jeffrey epstein has issued a statement saying these are stale, rehashed allegation that is lawyers are now attempting to repackage and spice up adding the names of prominent people. and the alleged victim has issued her own statement saying
7:34 am
i am looking forward to vindicating my rights as an innocent victim and pursuing all available recourse. and, she says the response she's had is exactly the reason why sexual abuse victims typically remain silent. she says matt i am not going to be bullied back into silence. >> keir simmons, thank you very much. alan dershowitz as we mentioned, named in that same lawsuit, is with us now. alan good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i was reading a preinterview you did with our producer. you're not only prepared to defend yourself but you are also about to go on the offense. let's get to the basics. your response to the allegations that you had sex with an underage girl all those years ago, what is your response? >> totally false and made up. she claims i had sex with with her in jeffny epstein's island. i was on that island once with my wife, my daughter, a prominent harvard business school professor, his wife, in-laws and children. i was never out of the sight of my wife. she claims i had sex with her on
7:35 am
jeffrey epstein's ranch in new mexico. record also show i was at the ranch once with friends with my wife and my daughter for about an hour. the house wasn't complete. epstein wasn't even in it. there are no girls around. she claims i had sex with her on the airplanes. manifests of the flights will show i was never on the airplanes with her. >> did you have any contact with jane doe number three at all, alan? >> no. i don't even know who she s i've never seen her, met her. i don't know who she s her lawyers have to know this. her lawyers, former federal judge and brad edwards deliberately and willfully file this had in a pleading which they knew i had no opportunity to respond to in court without any investigation. if they had simply investigated the manifest of the airplanes, if they had checked my travel records, if they had asked me, and i could have given them the names of the people who are witnesses, they would know that the story is totally false. these lawyers engaged n in unethical behavior and should be
7:36 am
disbarred. >> these are not guys who just fell off a turnip truck, alan. >> right. >> one is a former federal judge. >> that's right. >> why would they drag you and prince andrew in a case like this if they thought they had absolutely no merit? >> because they filed a paper in which they didn't ask to try to prove it. they didn't say we allege it. we want to prove it. they just threw it in there. it's the legal equivalent of scribbling something on a toilet stall and running away. they didn't think there would be any response and they will rue the day they file this had unethical complaint. >> why would two seasoned lawyers think there would be no response if you drag alan dershowitz into a lawsuit like this? >> i'm not a party to the lawsuit. i have no opportunity to respond. they didn't ask for a hearing. the woman said she wants a full investigation. i welcome a full investigation. i'm not trying to silence her. i challenged her to repeat the statement to the press so that i can sue for defamation. she has repeated the statements about the prince.
7:37 am
she has studiously refused to reproduce the statements about me. i challenged her to file rape criminal charges against me. if she does she exposes herself to criminal prosecution. i have challenged the lawyers to repeat these statements in public so there could be a defamation hearing. they want to just throw this stink bomb and then avoid any responsibility for it. they will not get away with this. there will be legal proceedings. there will be hearings. they will be deopposeposed. i will be deposed, the records will be produced the truth will come out and it will show these two unethical lawyers should be disbarred. i am completely and absolutely innocent of all these charges. >> i get the feeling this is not the last we've heard of this. >> absolutely not. >> alan dershowitz thank you very much. >> thank you. >> i think we get the feeling of why he is a famed defense attorney. let's get another check of the weather from al. >> a ton of pacific moisture out

8:54 am
my nonprofit, i was like you know no risk no reward. >> and the task was -- actually it had two tasks to it. you had to create a pie people would want to buy and also raise funds. >> wre. >> fund-raising aspect didn't go as well for you. >> there's a lot you don't see in the editing process. the amount of time we had to get the checks here they had to be in secure edd funds. so many variables, i had checks that simply didn't make it. if they didn't make it by the end and someone didn't bring it in then they didn't count. however, i thought it was interesting that even though i know as a project manager -- for me i was looking at the project and success overall, there were two people who raised zero dollars and two other people who raised less than i did. i get it. at the end of the day, i have to be accountable but -- >> fair or unfair the criticism was you didn't reach out to bill cosby. of course we all know you as rudy huxtable that you didn't reach out to someone you know very well bill cosby, and ask
8:55 am
him for funds. >> i thought that was interesting. i know "the cosby show" is in reruns and everyone is thinking we're this family that has dinner every friday night. i hadn't spoken to mr. cosby and i felt it would be tactless kind of rude to call someone and say, so, let me have some money right now. with the other checks i had lined up i didn't feel i needed to make that phone call. >> the other strange part as you well know now mr. cosby is facing all manner of allegations. this was taped back in march, this episode. >> absolutely. >> it didn't come up then. but you're here. i have to ask you, what do you make of those allegations, people coming out and saying this happened to them? somebody that was such a beloved character for so many years. >> what i can say is this. i wasn't there. no one was there except the two people to know exactly what happened. all i can speak to is the man that i know and that i love. the fact that he has been such an example. you can't take away from the great that he has done. you know the millions and
8:56 am
millions of dollars that he has given back to colleges and education. and just what he did with the cosby show and how groundbreaking that was. >> were you shocked by the allegations? >> ultimately they're just that allegations. and, you know it's very much been played out in the court of public opinion. but, you know we're still in america where ultimately you're innocent till proven guilty and, you know i wasn't there. that's just not the man i know. so i can't speak to it. >> good morning i'm tracy davidson. >> it is cold and windy. we're getting wind gusts of 40 miles per hour in the region. this is the ju from center city. it is now down to 30 in
8:57 am
philadelphia and it is 33 in potspot pottstown. >> we're looking at new video of eric frien. he was handcuffed. his preliminary hearing will begin in just a few minutes. he was on the run for 48 days before he was captured in october. stay with us as we continue to cover his hearing. we'll bring you updates on the website and on air. and the former rebel casino was purchased at an auction. but how much should he pay for
