if you bought a powerball ticket for last night's drawing at our store, you better check your numbers. >> 7, 10, 35, 22, 32, 19. >> reporter: and they left one, just one lucky winner in lexington, south carolina, $399.4 million. 12 other players also struck it rich, from 5 other states, matching 5 numbers. winning $1 million apiece. jackpots as big as $500 million once seemed impossible. but there's been four in just the last year. just last month, 16 maintenance workers in new jersey split a jackpot of $448 million. these giant paydays are thanks to higher ticket prices and more media attention. the country's other nationwide lotto says it will cash in on the goodness. the megamillions lottery plans to change its rules, improving the odds of winning any prize
7:01 am
from 1 in 40 to 1 in 15. >> come october 19th, when we make the real changes for megamillion, we think that game is going to be bigger than ever. >> reporter: that means second-place winners who once won $250,000 would now win at least $1 million. hardly chump change. this station says that this ticket could be sold anywhere. it sits right next to interstate 20 and an airport. plus, this isn't like florida. the winner can remain completely anonymous. robin? >> we'll have to wait and see what happens. steve, thanks. >> that's one winner. now, a big decision that could affect everyone's money. reserve, sent stocks soaring to new records wednesday. it was a welcome surprise to traders that kept markets around the world overnight. rebecca jarvis here to explain it all. and the surprise is, the fed's going to keep pumping money into the economy. >> reporter: what a difference $85 billion a month makes, george. that's what's happening. $85 billion a month, flowing into the markets. that's sending stocks to fresh all-time highs.
7:02 am
which is good news for anyone with a retirement savings account, a 401(k), i.r.a., even a pension. it's the 31st-record high close this year. stocks are up almost 20%. if you invested during the worst moments of the financial crisis in march of 2009, you would have more than doubled your money. stocks up almost 140% since then. but my sources on wall street do caution, many of the recent gains are specifically tied to this fed's policy. they want to see more evidence in the real economy. stronger jobs, to help fuel the rally forward, george. >> meantime, the white house closing in on a replacement for fed chair ben bernanke. >> reporter: and that replacement, looks like it's going to be dr. janet yelling, who would be a continuation of the current policy. but washington is focused on washington, d.c. you have a potential government shutdown coming up october 1. >> rebecca jarvis, thanks very much. let's go to josh with the
7:03 am
other top stories. >> we're going to begin with breaking news. evacuations overnight near an oklahoma chemical plant. the explosion and the flames that lit up the night sky. you see here, an hour west of oklahoma city. toxic chemicals are stored at this plant. residents downwind are being warned now about possibly dangerous fumes. luckily, no one was there when the blast occurred. and there are no reports of injuries at this hour. also breaking overnight, senator john mccain blasting russian president vladimir putin in print. in an op-ed, published today in russia's communist newspaper "pravda" mccain writes that putin rules. overnight, the kremlin responded. and mccain business. and in colorado, search and rescue teams will be out in the flood zone again today. and some evacuated families will
7:04 am
be going home, though uncertain of what they will find. abc's clayton sandell is in lyons, one of the hardest hit communities. clayton? >> reporter: this morning, teams are desperately searching through homes and piles of debris for as many as 200 people still unaccounted for. they're scanning from the air, too. but hundreds of people are refusing to leave. officials say it may be their last chance to get out. >> we want to make sure that those folks know that if they refuse, we may not be able to deploy helicopters again down the road. >> reporter: overnight, new reports of a damaged oil tank spilling thousands of gallons of crude oil into flood-swollen rivers. in towns that have working roads, some are being allowed back in. artist john king took us to his home in lyons. part of it ripped away by a river, now four-times wider than before. this was all dry ground. there were houses here. now, you can see, the river has
7:05 am
shifted course. all of the homes along the river are now completely destroyed. this morning, officials say the cleanup and rebuilding could take years. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, lyons, colorado. >> staggering images there. infomercial king kevin trudeau is in a chicago jail at this hour, under orders to pay a massive fine. he owes over $37 million for making alleged false claims about his weight loss book. trudeau says he doesn't have the money. however, evidence presented in court suggests otherwise. and a former nfl player has lots of questions after hundreds of kids caused at least $20,000 in damage to his vacation home. you see it here. ryan holloway's unoccupied house in upstate new york, trashed in a labor day weekend party. holloway learned about it from pictures tweeted by some of the 300 kids that were there. police are investigating.
7:06 am
and finally, the reward, she keeps growing for the homeless hero in boston. we told you about glen james for a few days. he turned in a lost backpack, containing some $42,000 in travelers checks and cash. now, an online campaign to raise donations for him is nearing $100,000. and i figure, if we update for the west coast, it's going to be over that. >> oh, yeah. >> no good deed goes unrewarded right there. great stuff. >> thanks so much. now, we have new details emerging about the washington navy yard shooter. abc news learning that aaron alexis carved two images -- two messages into the side of his gun. and now, his mother has spoken out with an emotional message. abc's pierre thomas joins us from washington this morning with the very latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today, the fbi is trying to unravel the mystery of motive. as you said, they have a tantalizing new clue. this morning, authorities are
7:07 am
studying the phrases that aaron alexis carved into his shotgun, used to carry out the deadly attack in the washington navy yard. sources tell abc news, alexis etched the words, better off this way, and my e.l.f. weapon, on the stock of the shotgun. investigators want to know if better off this way, was a signal alexis expected to die during the massacre. >> there was probably multiple triggers that caused him to decide, now's the time i'm going to take this course of action. thinking about it, conceptualizing it, planning it in his head. >> reporter: as for e.l.f., some investigators suspect it might refer to the tech phrase, extremely low frequency. alexis worked as a computer technician. and ran into police about hearing voices and microwave machines bombarding his body. he told that story to police.
7:08 am
but the navy confirmed it was never passed up the chain of command. he kept his job with the navy and his secret security clearance. >> obviously, there were a lot of red flags. and where there are failures, we will correct them. >> reporter: we're also hearing for the first time, someone who appears truly sorry. the killer's mother. >> aaron is now in a place where he can no longer do harm to anyone. i am so, so very sorry that this has happened. my heart is broken. >> reporter: the navy yard reopens today. but for the families of the dead and wounded, the pain is still raw. robin, so many shattered lives. >> absolutely. and the mother spoke mostly about the victims, not so much about her son in that message. we're going to turn to the terrifying kidnapping here at atlanta. ayvani perez is back with her family after being abducted at gunpoint from her home. two suspects from been arrested. police are investigating a connection with the girl's
7:09 am
family. gio benitez is here with the latest developments. >> reporter: a confusing one, no doubt. police say this apparently started as a random home invasion, where two armed men demanded money and abducted the girl. this morning, investigators say, she's in good health. but with two men arrested, police are still searching for others. this morning, investigators are frantically hunting for these two men, who they say kidnapped 14-year-old ayvani perez and they believe are on the run. as friends of the teen, who was found safely wednesday, were greeting her at her home outside of atlanta. >> there's several other subjects, suspects, that we're still investigating. >> she's home. she's safe. and that's what really matters. >> reporter: police aren't saying much about how they found perez. only they found the 14-year-old 26 miles from home. police will say they arrested wildrego jackson on kidnapping charges. and juan rodriguez, a mexican national, on immigration
7:10 am
violations. but as this community celebrates the teen's safe return this morning, they are also asking questions. court records show that one of the men charged, rodriguez, and the girl's mother were arrested on the same gay in 2012. they were busted as part of a marijuana trafficking ring. the charges against both were later dropped. >> this case has these two odd things going on inside it. one, a relationship between the mother and one of the abductors. and is this a logical house to break into? >> reporter: but to perez's family and friends, none of that seems to matter right now. this morning, neighbors who have seen her say, she's smiling and happy to be home. >> i said to her, i wanted you to know that i've been praying for you. and i knew that god would come true. and she said thank you. >> reporter: and police are staying quiet on this case. and this morning, they're not telling us anything about any
7:11 am
possible motive. but thank goodness that girl was okay. >> gio, thanks very much. now, to a decades' old mystery, the case of a baby stolen from his mother's arms in the 1960s. and this morning, the exclusive breakthrough just now being revealed that could help solve the case. abc's brian ross is in chicago with the latest development. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin. i'm in chicago in the hunt for that stolen baby. he would be a middle-aged man now. and as part of a special "20/20" report i'm working on with barbara walters, artists had created an image of what the stolen baby might look like today. this 49-year-old man may not know it. but he could help bring to an end a decades' long mystery, if he is alive, that is. it was 1964, at the michael reese hospital in chicago, that a 1-day-old baby was stolen out of his mother's arms by a woman posing as a nurse.
7:12 am
>> are there suspects here in chicago you're going to question? >> reporter: the fronczaks thought their prayers were answered a year later. the boy in new jersey seemed to match their missing paul. they took him home, adopted him and raised them as their own. but as paul fronczak grew up, he thought he was different. and this year, dna tests proved him right. he was not the stolen baby. he's working with "20/20" and brad garrett, to find out who he really is. and what happened to paul fronczak stolen from his mother. >> maybe he feels like something's wrong here. >> reporter: with his help, abc news commissioned artists who work with police and families on missing persons cases, to produce a likeness of what the stolen baby might look like today. it is being seen this morning for the first time.
7:13 am
best-case scenario what do you think would happen when this is broadcast? >> well, he's on his couch and sees it and gives you guys a call. >> hope he recognizes himself in this. >> reporter: paul fronczak's hope is that the real or the other paul fronczak can be found and help solve the mystery and reunite the elderly parents who so lovingly raised him with the son stolen from them so long ago. >> this morning, the fbi has reopened its investigation into the case. a case that has brought more than its fair share of heartache to the fronczak family. and now, perhaps some hope. and our tip line is for anybody who might recognize that image. >> okay. they will come. brian, thank you so much. to take a 1-day-old picture. >> incredible. time, now, for the weather. >> that's tougher than a 30-day weather forecast. that's tougher than that, even. let me show you what's going on with the storms. yesterday, from colorado to the
7:14 am
dakotas, this was a tough line of storms, dropped about eight inches of golf ball-sized hail. an inch of rain in the dakotas. that's possible today from duluth, through green bay. des moines, kansas city and wichita. this is hail, gusty winds and very big downpours out of those storms. not so sure aut tornados. but i would watch for them. look at the numbers. are you encouraged by the better weather? better if you like the 70s better than the 60s. 76, 76 is the way we're going. boston at 75. a little warmer by the weekend. colder again next week. we'll talk about more of that as the morning goes on.
7:15 am

7:26 am
on "wheel of fortune." it cost him $1 million. we're going to have the whole story coming up. he's going to be set pretty well. >> he was probably nervous. also ahead, we're going to turn to the dramatic twist in the case of that seattle husband on trial for killing his wife. what so many women are saying in the courtroom, now, contradicting him. and here's a fascinating one. chris the birdman anderson, if you watch the nba, you know who he is. heavily tattooed and mohawked and a standout for the miami heat this past season. incredibly recognizable. how did he have his identity stolen and by a woman, no less. it's a fascinating story. >> he's so recognizable. athletes are talking about how to get better performance. what if there was a surgery that would let a young female athlete potentially do better in sports?
7:27 am
this is -- i think it's got to be controversial. the more i know about this, the more i think this is a topic. >> and dr. jen ashton will be here to weigh in on that. now, we begin with the suburban seattle man on trial for murdering his wife, more than seven years after her death. new testimony in court from women who say he cheated on his wife with them. and the police interview tapes just revealed to jurors, where he seemed to directly contradict them. abc's neal karlinsky has that story for us. >> reporter: one after the other, they took the stand right in front of him. women who say they were intimate with a married david pietz. the man accused of killing his wife, nicole, and who police say portrayed himself as a loving husband. >> yeah. i remember kissing him. >> we had sex. >> reporter: a co-worker testified, pietz began their relationship back when he was engaged. >> i asked him why he was getting married. and he said that at that point, it was too late to back out of it. >> reporter: nicole pietz,
7:28 am
david's wife, vanished in 2006. her body was later found in a wooded area, strangled. now, seven years later, pietz is on trial, charged by prosecutors who say he killed his wife because he was unhappy with their marriage. the detectives built a case on circumstantial evidence and dna. a woman pietz met at a gym said he twice slipped the drug ecstasy into his wife's drinks. >> he told me he would put it in her red bull. trying to loosen her up to get her to do a threesome. >> reporter: jurors heard something different from david pietz himself. an audio recording of his interview with police, in which he said he never used drugs and had virtually no sex drive. >> i don't have much of a l libido. it's kind of an opposite of what the stereotype is. >> reporter: he is calm in the interview. and said he feared his wife may
7:29 am
have overdosed on medication. he has pleaded not guilty and continued to deny involvement in his death. a trial that will play out for the next month and a half. for "good morning america," neal karlins karlinsky, abc news, seattle. let's get more from dan abrams. seven years after the fact. and we have the prosecution, many have a smoking gun here. >> they have to put together a puzzle for jurors of little pieces. remember, they didn't charge him until they were able to use some new technology to be able to move this case forward, only recently. so, they're going to want to begin -- this is how they're starting, talking about motive. they want to warm the jurors up to the idea of convicting this guy. why would he have wanted to do this? here are the reasons why. >> warming the jurors. heating them up. that testimony catches your ear. >> it's salacious and it's sexual. but there's an important relevance to it.
7:30 am
he had said something about his own libido, which completely contradicts what these women are saying. he's telling the police, in essence, one thing. and then, they're bringing these witnesses to say, that's not at all what was the case. a lie in a police investigation is much more important than just the idea that, oh, he was having an affair. >> they're trying to fill out more of the contradictions with some dna evidence they do have. >> that's right. they begin the process by putting the jurors in the mood to convict, which is to say, here's why. they don't have to prove motive. but they want to. and they feel that they can here because actually, the motive evidence, where they are now, to some degree is stronger than some of the other evidence in connection with this case. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. now, to the bizarre case of internet identity theft. the target, standout nba star, chris birdman anderson.
7:31 am
someone hacked their way deep into his personal life. and almost cost him his career. abc's john muller has that story. >> reporter: 6'10", mohawk and thoroughly tattooed. it might be impossible to think anyone could steal chris anderson's identity. >> it was a tangled web. >> reporter: the nba champion, apparently the vic testimony of a complex internet hoax, in which police say a woman in canada, posed as anderson online. demanding gifts and threatening at least one person. it's the same alleged scheme that resulted in a police search for child pornography in anderson's colorado home last may. >> mr. anderson was home at the time that our deputy investigators were there. and they did speak with him. and he fully cooperated. >> reporter: anderson was never charged with a crime. and this morning, prosecutors have cleared his name. but his lawyer says the investigation has taken its toll. >> it was harrowing for him
7:32 am
would be an underestimate. chris is about children in our community. always has been. this person was santa claus. it's difficult for him. >> reporter: police tell abc news that andersen's impersonator has been hit with child pornography and extortion charges in canada. andersen says he's never met the woman in his life. >> high-profile people are easy targets for extortionists. the other side of this is, that we all are vulnerable to being extorted because there's so much information about every one of us. >> reporter: as for andersen, he's preparing for another season with the miami heat. but he tells us, he's just glad the heat is off him. saying, thank you to everyone who believed and supported me. it's been a difficult, long time. and this is a place i can start moving forward. for "good morning america," john muller, abc news, new york. >> many remember when that story first broke. and it did not look good. like he said, he maintained his innocence all along.
7:33 am
>> it looks horrible when that first broke. and so happy that is the outcome. >> we're all vulnerable to the same things. i'll tell you something else. we're going to show you pictures out of jacksonville, florida, yesterday. between midnight and noon, seven inches of rain. we continue to hear these totals this summer. it was a heavy storm. it was an inch of rain. in one event, five, six, seven inches of flooding rain in some places. from the mountains all the way to florida going on. there's good news for the jacksonville area. duval county, it clears up and dries up. we're going to 84 degrees today. that front sinks towards orlando and south. south florida, you're in for a stormy day today. new orleans 88. this is humid and there's a lot of rain back off to the west in the next 24 hours. that's through texas towards kansas city. 79 degrees on the west coast. 75 in san francisco. the good news here is that kind

of gray, damp, cool sky you had for a couple of days, gets better. and there doesn't seem as much of a fog problem along the coast that weather was brought to you by at&t. big storms in the middle of the country today. and heavy rain involved with them. >> didn't you work in jacksonville back in the day? >> that's why i knew it was florida's first coast. >> thank you, sam. and coming up on "gma," boy, wasn't "wheel of fortune" for this guy. the mispronunciation that cost him a shot at $1 million. and the contestant who seems perfect. why is her own country saying
