7:34 am
what is your take? >> well, robin, i'm not prepared, based on the facts we've got right now to point the finger at anybody. however, i don't believe -- i thought about it a long time last night in preparation for this morning, that i ever had a single mother that could come to terms with the fact that her live-in, her boyfriend, her husband, her ex-husband had somehow hurt the child. they don't believe it. i don't understand that. >> the fact that child protective services is stepping in here means there's something they found that suggests he's not a good father. what that is, we don't know. is it connected to the case? we don't know. it's a big deal for them to step in and say, you literally cannot be anywhere near your children. so, for whatever reason, the mother, the wife is saying this, we don't know. but we do know the fact that child protective services issued

7:36 am
it's the father. at the individualle lavigil las father was standing off. i have analyzed over and over with experts the voice in the 911 call and other times he's spoken, there's an umbrella of suspicion over him today, whether anybody wants to believe it or not, it's there. >> i don't buy you analyze the voice and determine guilt based on that. we have seen people like susan smith and scott petersen -- people like them have gone on television publicly and cried and been so upset and so angry and reacted exactly the way we would expect and we find out later they were guilty. to suggest because someone calls 911 in way most of us wouldn't, to talk about experts and voice experts, it just doesn't mean anything to me.
