7:03 am
fiercely right now, and an area that firefighters have been very concerned about, all of the telecommunications for l.a. are locate the at this site. broadcast towers for all of the television stations and radio and communication for the firefighters. so that is critical. but right now, this is a fire that is growing and out of control. it's an inferno racing lieu thousands of acres fueled by triple digit heat, low humidity and trees that haven't burned in decades. the station fire is threatening 12,000 homes and forcing evacuations over a 50 mile area. >> to say this is a dangerous fire is a total understatement. >> reporter: two firefighters were killed when their engine went off a cliff. >> please pray for their families of our two brothers that we love. >> reporter: with no wind, massive smoke clouds were kept hanging over the l.a. skyline, blocking the view of firefighters in the air. meanwhile, high winds in the

7:05 am
the lot next door. we're also learning more about the woman who is actually believed to have dragged jaycee into garrido's car 18 years ago and that's his mysterious wife, nancy. phillip and nancy met while he was serving time at a federal pen tentry in leavenworth for a kidnapping and rape in the 1970s. nancy once worked in the health care industry and was rarely seen by neighbors. >> i never would imagine that somebody could have a compound and nobody in the neighborhood would even have a clue. >> reporter: these are the first photos from inside the backyard prison showing up close the disturbing conditions in which jaycee dugard was held captive. now a bizarre manifesto written by garrido has surfaced arizonaed to the san francisco fbi describing his efforts to control the desires that drive a sexual predator. cab dafr dogs entered the
7:06 am
property as police looked for evidence ga redid he may be involved in the murders of other women missing in the area. >> we hissed an opportunity -- >> reporter: several opportunities. first a sheriff's deputy visited the property in 2006. >> he did not unfortunately go into the home or the wac yard. >> reporter: there was a visit from a sexual predator task force, regular checks by a parole officer. even the fire department. >> we're looking at the call history. it appears the fire department came out here six times. >> that address is a sex offender's address and a person on parole. so they should have some kind of red flag up about it. it just scares me to think about how sick people are today. >> reporter: now there's a lot of red flags here this morning. they're looking through the yard next door because at one time garrido was the caretaker of this and the resident who has moved in there now says that when he moved in, the lob locks were such that a person could
7:07 am
only be locked inside, they couldn't people lock people out. one startling fact, the megan's law website shows that in this zip code, there are more than 100 registered sex offenders. >> john blackstone in antioch. thanks. joining us now from san francisco is maria christensen who had business dealings with phillip garrido. you run a recycling business. how is it you came to do some business phillip garrido? >> about ten years ago, he was highly recommended by another business person and he started coming around more and more asking for more business. at the beginning, he was kind of just odd. he would deliver at odd hours. i'd come in in the morning and the stuff would be on the door, so i wouldn't see him as much. >> but did your antenna ever rise up to the point where you thought this guy is anything
7:08 am
more than just peculiar? >> no, i just thought that he was such a religious freak that he was just harmless. >> when was it that he started to talk to you more about religion and when did you begin to think maybe this guy is a little more than just strange? >> about a year ago, he like -- he would just keep coming and telling me about this stuff and gave me the cd, gave me the -- just flyers and, you know, asking can he come to my business and preach there. and i said no. >> and he asked for you money at one point, did he not in. >> yes. last year him and his wife came in and they wanted a $2,000 advancement on the receipts so that they can build a bathroom to start a church at home. >> did you ever go to his house? >> yes, and he wouldn't let me in. >> he wouldn't let you in. >> no. >> you ever see jaycee?
7:09 am
>> no. i've only seen one of the kids. >> one of the kids. and especially in the encounter when he asked for you money and i know there was crying involved and he confessed to some things that we don't want to talk about on television in terms of sexual behavior -- >> yes. he was crying and -- they were both crying and she was hanging on to me and he was saying he had been in prison and i just figured drugs because he was so goofy. >> knowing what you know now, it might be very difficult as you look back over the last year. >> yeah. there was so many flags there that we should have picked up on. >> in conversations with others of your colleagues, did anybody ever say at one point we should call this guy in or somehow we reach beyond these obvious, obvious -- i guess they're obvious now, but the signs that he was giving you?
7:10 am
>> he was just talking about religion a whole lot. he wasn't really doing anything, you know. nothing that we should be calling on because we didn't know his past. >> thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us this morning. we do appreciate it. >> thank you. we continue our coverage with this important question. now that they've been reunited with their family, how should jaycee and her little girls re-enter society? joining us from kansas city this morning, forensic psychologist brian russell. good morning. >> good morning, maggie. >> we have these three young lady, jaycee kidnapped when she was just 112, her two daughters now 11 and 15 and born into the situation and never known anything else. everyone wants to picture them now living happily ever after with their real family, but it's not that simple, is it is this. >> it's not. and there's a tremendous hope angle to the story, hope for even who has a missing loved one out there that they can be found alive, and hope for jaycee and her kids. but we have to be realistic
7:11 am
about what it is that we're hoping for. obviously we're not going to be able to go back and restore to them these years that they've lost. so the question is what kind of quality of life can we help them to achieve going forward. and i do believe that it they all can find joy in this life and that we can restore some semblance of a normal wlf to them, but it's going to be a long hard road because we have trauma issues, we have all the reintegration issues that we're talking about. and we may even have some of these issues that people have talked about a lot on television the last pew days about having these bonds that they've formed maybe with the garridos. >> that's right. in fact -- >> people talk about stockholm syndrome. >> jaycee's stepfather feels guilty because she bonded with him and the fact this when he was arrested she cried and the little girls now are angry that their father is is this jail help how do you begin it to explain that, how do you begin to deal with that? >> well, fortunately for america
7:12 am
and unfortunately for the people who need treatment in this case, it's really sort of unprecedent unprecedented. so in order to give and you good victim specific prognosis and treatment plan, i'd have to see the victims and examen them and assess them, but let me tell you where to start. you start with let'sing them know that they're safe. it's really too soon for them to have fully wrapped their minds even around that yet. and then that they're loved unconditionally and that they tonight have to feel guilty for anything that they did or didn't do while this was going on. it's too early i think for people in the media to be diagnosing the stockholm syndrome. that's possibly that she's developed an an finity for them and that the kids have, too, but what's more likely is that they just resign themselves to the fact that they were never going to get out of this thing and just tried to make the best of it, which is a different thing from liking the cap tore. >> brian russell, go appreciate your insight this morning. >> thanks. and can go up, we'll talk more about this with jaycee's stepfather who says that the girls have psychologists with them around the clock. he'll be here in the studio.
7:13 am
we'll also speak with a forger teacher who says that neither she nor any of jaycee's former classmates ever gave up hope. >> russ mitchell is off this morning. jeff glor is at the news desk. good morning. good morning, everyone. georgia police investigation xwatsing a mass killing, still have no suspects in the deaths of eight people. the victims were killed saturday in a mobile home about 70 miles south 6 savannah. list have are l. not say how the victims were attacked. a ninth remains in serious condition and police are offering a $25,000 reward for information. the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan says this morning a revised strategy is needed. with you in his review of the war, general stanley mcchrystal also says success can be achieved. and american little leaguers are world champs for the fifth year in a row. the team from chula vista, california staged a dramatic comeback beating taiwan 6-3.
7:14 am
in seven previous game, they had not won and ira joe fish ser in for dave price. in those seven previous games, california against taiwan, they've beenththth yut scored 6. >> unbelievable. >> amazing victory. >> amazing. and in california, i guess one more world series title in little league than any other place. >> we're full of facts this morning. >> that's why we're here. other facts, speaking of california, not good news. the interior sections continue to really be hot and dry. morning fog, low clouds. the best hope is that hurricane jimena, which is climbs up from the south, which spread moisture later on in the week to help douse the flames. at the moment, they continue to rage. and

an emotional weekend for the kennedy family and for a lot of family across the country. joining us now is ted kennedy's niece, kathleen kennedy townsend. good morning. >> hi, harry, how are you? >> i'm well. tell me your best memory of your uncle ted.
7:19 am
>> there are so many memories of him both political and personal. you know, i'm always touched by the fact that on the day that my cousin, teddy, who lost his leg, it was my wedding day and i had asked whether i should, you know, postpone my wedding because it was so traumatic for our family. he said in and he came and picked me up at my mother and father's house and walked me down the aisle and during the time talked about his own wedding and what a wonderful time that can be. and he was in the most tough, difficult moment for his own self, he was trying to be helpful and open and positive if me. and i think that is really a metaphor for what did he throughout his life. he's had a terrible, personal tough times and yet he was always out there helping others. >> you're my age, which means you're old enough to remember
7:20 am
when teddy and bobby and jfk were all alive as brothers together. >> well, what i really remember is them together is primarily in hyannis port when there was so many touch football games, which was great fun. or going sailing. i remember sailing with my uncle teddy and my father and we were in a race and i was -- with the three of us and i was the ballast, which for those who aren't the sale ares means i was just dead weight. just getting wet for four straight hours. but what i also remember during those times, not only sort of the fun family times, but obviously the sense of public life and that you gave back to the cup. my father was doing the hearings, teddy ran for senate in 1962, we remember that, and
7:21 am
he was just running on his name and i think my father, attorney general, because of his brother being president, but the point was you're given opportunities and then what do you make of those tumopportunities. an i think what we saw over the last few days is that people said ted kennedy, why not how you got to be senator, but when you were there, you did more than any other senator in american history. >> i've got 20 seconds left. does a kennedy belong in your uncle's old senate seat actual? actually, i have five seconds left. >> i think teddy kennedy gave much to our country. i think if my brother, joe, wanted to run, i think he's he'd put up a great race and be a great senator, but there t. there are a lot of people who can carry on senator kennedy's lega legacy. >> kathleen, thank you so much. we'll be right back.

7:31 am
fishermen who are very happy to be alive. they spent eight days hanging on to the boat which capsized in the gulf of mexico. it's being called a miracle at sea. but first, one of the many people who are grateful that jaycee dugard was found alive after being kidnapped 18 clears ago is sue bush, jaycee's former fifth grade teacher. she joins us from nevada. good morning. tell me about jaycee. what do you remember what she was like as an 11-year-old girl? >> jaycee was absolutely delightful. she was always happy, she had a smile on her face. sparkly eyes. well liked by all the kids in the room. >> it comes across in the pictures that we're looking at of her had, but, sue, what do you remember about that horrible day that she was kidnapped and how did you learn about her kidnapping? >> well, you know, i actually learned about it after i
7:32 am
arrived -- i was at school already, i telled to go tended early. and somewhere between 8:00 or 9:00, i got the call to come down to the office and that's when i found out about jaycee. and i just want to let you and everybody and jaycee know that the entire community, her family, her friends, her classmates, her teacher, never, ever forgot her or gave up the hope that she would come back some day. >> so this day is just wonderful news after waiting 18 years. >> oh, absolutely. >> but, sue, what do you remember telling your students about this whole kidnapping case and what did the students say about her abduction? >> a lot of the kids already knew about it out on the yard because some of the children had actually witnessed the abduction because they were on the way to the same bus stop. >> what did they say about what
7:33 am
they saw? like how did jaycee react to being snatched? >> jaycee did everything she was supposed to do. she screamed and she kicked. we had had a d.a.r.e. training weeks prior and she did exactly what she was supposed to do that morning. she fought off her attackers. >> amazing. sue bush, thank you for sharing your memory and your thoughts with us. want to turn to our other guests. robin tax is a former wlaenks county deputy district attorney and the author of predator respect and child molesters. first of all, let's talk about the staff. how many registered sex offen r offenders are out there? there. >> there are about 500,000 registered sex offenders actually out there. that's only the people that are actually registered. those aren't the people who are sex offenders who have yet to be
7:34 am
convicted or awaiting trial or have never everyone ben been ar. so the numbers are a little misleading. >> what's the number who actually slip through the cracks then? >> there is about 100,000 people that slip through the cracks. and that means that they fail to register. those are ones that we though about and who aren't keeping up with what they're supposed to do who aren't registering or maintaining their address. >> so there's so many out there. parents are probably panicking right now hearing these numbers. what's the first step a parent should take to keep their kids safe? >> as i mention in my book, i talk about how we should take advantage of teachable moments. we should look at an opportunity, a silver lining in the case of jaycee, and remember that we really need to have the safety conversations with our kids all the time. but in addition, the registered sex offender list is something that everybody can access. it's free, it's easy, you you can google sex offender and it's
7:35 am
right there. and look by address. and everyone should look to see who is living in their neighborhood, who is living near their schools, who is living near their grand pashtss' homes or caretakers homes and not just look at the list as, okay, these are people that exist, but actually go into the list, take a glance at the picture, be familiar with who you may be looking for, but also look at the crime for which they're convicted. many times the registry will have on the list what is actually the case in phillip garrido's situation that it was listed that he had been convicted in a prior case for kidnap and for on rape. and if you have that rape there, this is something different than just unlawful sex or statutory rape situation. this is someone swwho is a violt predator. >> if a child is being snatched, what do you tell your child that he or she should do? >> exactly what jaycee did did, the screaming and kicking is definitely something you want to do. you want to do something to put off the at takingers and yell for help.
7:36 am
but not just help with the word help, but use the word fire. and at all costs to try not to get into the car if at all possible. everything's about buying time, not necessarily winning the fight. it's giving you a moment maybe gouging out with keys or using your fingers or taking an elbow to push someone away just to buy that couple extra seconds to run away. >> robin sax, thank you so much. now let's head back to new york and get another check of the weather and say good morning to ira joe fisher. good morning. > good morning. well, you'll see some sunny skies and hot temperatures in interior california. in the nation's middle, it will it will feel like the last day of august or something. and some showers will bub bell up over the rockies and it will continue to be rather soggy in the southeastern part of the country. but from the tennessee valley into the great lakes and extending over into the northeastern part of nation, temperatures climbing up into the 70s and parts of the great

texas fishermen headed in to the gulf of mexico where they should not encountered major trouble. hair 23-foot boat capsized and they were forced to spend the night next to eight days struggling to survive and as they clung on to the boat with only crackers and gum to sustain them. then on saturday, they were found by another boater more than 180 miles from shore. joining us now from blessing, texas are two of the three rescued fishermen, james phillips and curt hall. good morning, gentlemen. >> good morning. >> so you guys are going out to fish, you head out, you're out there. when did trouble really strike? james? >> friday. >> friday. >> as soon as we got there. >> as soon as you got out there. there are these pumps that keep the twin hold kind of fishing boat, and the pumps that keep it dry, they stopped working, is that right? >> the port side stopped working.
7:42 am
the star board, everything was working fine. and i don't know if it shorted out or burnt up or -- it just quit working and filled up the hole. >> so the thing goes over. and then you're left with no power and the most important thing, you might have had crackers, you might have had bubble gum, but you don't survive unless you've got water. what did you do for fresh water shall. >> we had two gallons of water stored in one of the front compartments of the boat and we started with that. and then after we got done to about a gallon and a half, i told curt, i said we got to do a little something more about water. i don't think this will last. and we had a fresh water tank that had 30 gallons of water on it, and i swam down and grabbed the hose and pulled it up. when i turned the nozzle, it was fresh water. and curt grabbed the end and cut it off and suckeded on it and had fresh water. so we had 31 gallons of water,

>> one thing people can't forget in this whole situation is i lost one of my boys that day. >> reporter: but even after gilpin clapped, witnesses say other players asked for water and coach stinson called them cowards. >> this is about an adult human being who had training who was responsible for the health and welfare of a child. >> reporter: stinson faces two charges, rec wls homicide, and endangerment, potentially five years behind prison -- some prison. his lawyers will accident the death was a terrible accident, but across america, coacheses and parents are be watching. >> mark strassmann live with us from louisville. a lot of soul searching going on and a lot of people wondering just how this is going to turn out. joining us now is one of coach stinson's friends, rodney dougherty. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> how is coach stinson feeling on the eve of this trial? >> well, obviously he's nervous,
8:36 am
concerned being the first coach ever charged with something like this, but his faith in christ will carry him through. >> you're a good friend of his. what kind of soul searching has he gone through in this last year? >> i really couldn't answer that harry. that would be for coach stinson to answer. >> from the standpoint of so many people observing this and saying, well this, was , this w accident that happened, one of the things that i'm a little curious about is why you would withhold water from people on an athletic field. that's an -- i'm an old school guy, i played football through high school and college and we were lucky to get ice chips when i was playing football. and what the conventional -- that was the convention at wisdom 30 or 40 years ago fp everybody now knows that you have to keep these kids hydrated. i guess i'm wondering why he
8:37 am
would withhold liquids on a day when you're practicing in the 90 degree heat. >> water was withheld, harry. most of those boys has four to five water breaks that day. that's misreported. people who reported that were only there for a few minutes of the practice. >> does he feel like -- does the coach feel like he's being wrongly accused or being made a scapegoat or a target? >> oh, absolutely. this is a first for football. this is no longer about a coach. they're after the game of football at this point. >> and in terms of the community, what is your sense of how the community is responding to this? >> well, there's been quite a bit of support for him. we've been able to raise about
8:38 am
$90,000 to help him with his legal expenses. when you hear that the community is divided, you assume that that's a 50/50 division, but that's just not the case. the majority that are behind stinson is much larger than that. >> does coach stinson want to go back to coaching? >> he has said that if he's acquitted he does want to return to coaching. >> and he used to be in professional life and was not in the school system. he made a specific decision to become a coach, is that not correct? >> that is correct. he was working for xerox and felt he had a call from the lord to go mentor young men and that's why he ended up coaching football and teaching. >> it will be very interesting as this trial plays out. we thank you, rodney, very much for taking the time to speak with us. >> thank you, sir. now hehere's maggie.
