that happened in 2006. when we get to the list of sort of the different ways unfortunately that they've all passed away in the line of duty, you can see it's quite a list there. two in an aircraft accident. you have 13 in automobile accidents. only 3 in gunfire. and then struck by vehicles 7. and, of course, that number is updated now because of what happened to trooper valez. getting answers in the answer >> denise: we owe them all so much. trooper valez's son plays on the high school football team. troopers and police are all over the area are expected to attend tonight's game. a live report on that coming up at 6:00. there was another deadly incident on the roads yesterday and we now know the name of the driver who died on i-71. 31-year-old monique jefferson of cleveland drove into a stopped
>> always watching, always tracking. now your first alert forecast. all week you've been saying prepare for a wet week, especially saturday. things could get a little unhinged tonight. correct? >> jeff: later on tonight. we're going to be good for the friday night football games and anything else you have going on friday evening. it's mainly going to be over night and tomorrow morning when the first wave will sneak in here. in fact, as we look at the radar, you can start to see that first batch. and it's going to be humid coming up. so we have increasing mois. tonight. but you see that first wave of showers and storms that just moved through the indianapolis area. and it's moving. it's going to be crossing over the state line of ohio here within the next couple of hours. but it will be later on tonight for us. that's when the alert will kick in. and then through the day tomorrow with waves of rain and storms. the risk after 11:00 tonight. that's when it starts. and we're not expecting severe weather with this.
will remain in check as well. so i'm not expecting any flooding going on as well. 82. that's at hopkins right now. 6:00 temperature around 78. 76 at 7:00. 8:00. 73 degrees. and, again, pretty dry this evening. north side of downtown with that lake breeze. 76 in akron-canton. you are at 81. i'll have much more on the timing of this rain coming up a little bit later on. chris, back to you. >> sounds good, jeff, th. surrounding the bodies found this week in ashland and mansfield. you'll remember a woman called 911 and told the dispatcher she was being held captive. that caller was rescued by police and survived. well, today elizabeth griffith was confirmed as one of the victims. stacy stanley was the first victim to be identified. we're still waiting to learn the last woman's name. catherine bosley live now with new details on the prime
catherine. >> reporter: well, with $1 million bond just being set, shawn michael grate will not be stepping outside jail any time soon. his arraignment taking place any time soon. the only ones in attendance, the media. the whole arraignment only taking a few minutes done by skype with defendant shawn michael grate appearing from jail. he's officially charged now with two counts of murder and one count of kidnapping. he was arrested earlier this week at an abandoned home in downtown ashland when a woman called 911 hostage. it's also where police say they found the bodies of two other women. one just identified as elizabeth griffin. the other as 43-year-old stacy stanley who came up missing last week. grate with very little to say during the hearing. >> is there anything you would like me to consider when determining ing bond in this ca?
>> reporter: grate's next hearing is scheduled for first thing monday morning but his troubles don't end here. he's also connected with the murder of yet another woman in neighboring richland county. we're still awaiting charges on that. getting answers in ashland county, catherine bosley, cleveland 19. >> chris: catherine, thanks. shawn grate has had no individualtors. he's a maximum security inmate right now but is not on suicide watch. the jail administrator says grate is monitored b every 30 minutes and physically every 60 minutes. according to his activity log, grate has been watching hours of television, sleeping, even reading his bible. to read more from that jail log, just download our app or visit cleveland19.com. as the story develops, we'll have breaking updates on our social media pages as well. well, now the brunswick football team plays tonight and the supped has a message for
controversy we've been telling you about. 16-year-old rodney axon took a knee during the national anthem after he claims teammates used the n word. racist messages then surfaced on social media. there are no charges yet in the case. but the superintendent said they're getting help from an expert on diversity issues. and regarding tonight's game against solon, he said in a statement we plan to continue our years long practice of our team remaining in the locker room d at home games. this is no change from how our team has prepared for countless home games in years past. from friday night football to friday night baseball. >> denise: yes. >> chris: the start of a big series tonight. >> denise: everyone is wearing red and they're honored. we look to expand the lead over detroit. how about it, tony?
and this is the series the indians have been working towards for 146 games. they have put themselves in a phenomenal position. they're six games up on the tigers with 16 to play. if they were to sweep the tigers, obviously it would be a knockout blow. they're not thinking about that. but i have to tell you when you look at the way these two teams have matched up throughout the season, the indians have taken 11 out of 12 from one of their fiercest rivals. they have years back when the tigers owned the tribe. that's why they're in this position right now. the indians are in great shape. when i talk to terry francona, i asked him about the knockout blow. he said it goes against entirely what they think about. >> that's what i mean. that doesn't help. we try to do whatever helps. and the best way to do that is to try to beat them tonight. we start going away from your strengths or things you believe in. that's when you can get yourself in a little bit of trouble.
tonight. win, lose or draw, we'll try to do the same thing tomorrow. >> reporter: certainly it does not hurt to have corey kluber who has been the best pitcher in baseball on the hill. golmes does have a fracture so not looking good for him to return. much more coming up including mike napoli. party should continue tonight. that's coming up at we need everyone else to remain healthy. >> chris: magic number is 11. that's the magic number of a cleveland indian win or opponent loss. we can do that together. >> denise: i think we can handle it. let's take a live look at the roads. this is 77 coming in and out of downtown cleveland. no real problems to report anywhere near downtown. but we do want to tell you there's some sort of a fire on twinsburg on 480 eastbound
we're not sure. so beware of that. there's a delay. and also an accident blocking the shoulder in brunswick. 71 just before route 303. there's a little bit of a backup there about a 7 minute delay. you can always get the latest by downloading our app and clicking on the traffic tab. first alert traffic on cleveland 19 news is sponsored by ford. coming up, torn apart by tragedy. a toddler hit by a car. how hisil legacy alive and trying to keep
center, driven by don joseph toyota in kent. this is cleveland 19 news. >> chris: a brunswick family is working to keep their toddler's legacy alive. >> a van hit him and killed him just steps away from his front door. shelby miller talked to the family still dealing with the loss two months later. >> i was like, oh, my god, they hit him. >> reporter: standing outside her front dosh tragically died two months ago. >> i could literally see my little baby from right here. >> reporter: lacey said she turned her head for a minute and she turned for a second and someone hit him. >> although the sdend happened two months ago, the family's heartbreak hasn't gone away. especially because christian's
was so hard for me and our first born son was all i had left of him. so losing him, it was just a pain that i could never, ever describe or ever get over. >> reporter: she doesn't want anyone else to go through that pain. with the help of family and friends, she's keeping christian's legacy alive. they started a movement called monk which is the nickname they gave christian. >> it stands for making others notice kids. ep to the movement, they made these shirts and lay see's boyfriend even wrote a song called angel. >> i know the pain that i feel is so unbearable that if i can help prevent this so no other family has to go through a devastation like this, it will be his legacy. >> reporter: getting answers in brunswick, shelby miller, cleveland 19 news. well, so far no charges have been filed in that case. the family told us the investigation is still ongoing
distracted driving or speed were factors. police say the driver did not live in the apartment complex. we called the medina county prosecutor to get an update but we haven't heard back from him yet. ohio's unemployment rate dropped again in august. it's now 4.7%. that's down a tenth of a percent from the previous month. but as you can see here, it's actually up from a year ago. the state department of job and family services said ohio had 272,000 unemployed month. all right. well, we're dealing with some cloud cover right now. and we'll see what happens with this first batch of rain. i have a hunch that a lot of this is going to weaken by the time it gets to us here because there's better dynamics, better moisture out to the west. so as this moves east, again, it is going to run into some dryer air. but later on tonight going into tomorrow morning, better
here. so here we go with the latest future view run. 8:00 to 11:00 still pretty dry. here is 2:00 in the morning. we could have a few showers out to the west. watch what happens by 8:00 tomorrow morning. that's when we're going to have showers and storms around. it's not going to be raining all of the time. in fact, late morning, early afternoon, we could have a little dry period here before the showers and storms pick back up. the coverage later on in the afternoon going i tomorrow. so a little concerned about the tribe game tomorrow night. but we're going to have showers and storms in the forecast. but here is the change on sunday. not as great of a chance, even though we have the front coming through. i have just isolated showers and storms around. now, with the increase in the moisture, it's going to be pretty warm tonight for this time of year. in fact, 11:00 many spots still in the 70s. and even 2:00 in the morning.
summer-time feel out there and at progressive field. 77 at first pitch. we only drop down to about 75. beautiful night for baseball. partly cloudy sky to begin the first game of that big series. east wind 8 to 13 knots out there on the lake this evening. and you have waves only around a foot. we drop down to 69. that's warm for this time of year and humid. showers and storms, though, that will be developing, later on tonight. akron-canton 68. your low with showers and storms again. these are not expected to be severe. and then waves of rain and storms tomorrow. humid. 79 will be the high. here is the planner. 79 mostly cloudy. rain and storms. 74 at 11:00. and upper 70s at 2:00 and 5:00 for that high close to 80. 65 tomorrow night. more showers and storms. and there is the change. we took out the alert.
the afternoon. so it could rain a little bit at the browns game. 81, though. it's going to be warm. monday sunny, 80. tuesday sunny. right around 80. becoming partly cloudy wednesday. i have it dry for the most part next week. >> denise: all right. >> jeff: once we get into the weekend, a little bit of a dry spell. >> denise: today was beautiful. >> jeff: not as beautiful as you, coming up next, a 9/11 survivor talking with local school kids. many of whom were too young to remember that day. we're going to hear his powerful
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. donald trump says he alone can fix the problems we face. well i don't believe that's how you get things done in our country. it takes democrats and republicans working
together. that's how we got health care for 8 million kids. rebuilt new york city after 9/11. and got the treaty cutting russia's nuclear arms. we've got to bring people together. that's how you solve problems and that's what
michael hingston talking to high school students about the day terrorists flew into the world trade center. the freshman class would have been too young when 9/11 happened. for them it's a historical event that has not changed the way they live. >> that's because most of today's high school students never truly experienced that day in history. that's why it's so important for people like hingston to talk about it. >> we have to get out of here. the building is on you have the picture. the blind guy is saying slow down. is that contrary to good thinking or what. except one small thing. david was not observing what i was observing. i told you what it was like. >> he went onto explain that his guide dog was calm and as a blind man he knew he had to be calm. and he was more prepared for an emergency because he has to
he has to have an emergency plan. >> denise: wow. >> chris: coming up we'll here what he says happen when he entered the stairwell and a lot of images certainly of that day but some of them from the stairwell of the twin towers as people made their way down and out. >> denise: out to safety. how about him blind with a service dog and able to make it out. >> chris: unbelievable. unbelievable. >> denise: he had a guardian angel. another check of the weather. jeff. >> jeff: we have frida football going on here at 7:00. a lot of games kick off at that time. we're still going to be around 80.
over, you would be wrong. >> that's right. donald trump who spent months suggesting the president was not born in the united states finally conceded that, indeed, he was born an american. ryan noble is live in washington dc. ryan got asked will trump's admission put this issue to rest or will it stoke some embers. >> reporter: i think that's a good way to put it. i think today trump reignited this been talking about for some time and he took it a step further when he laid the blame on hillary clinton. in many ways, it was the launch of donald trump's campaign for president. >> you are not allowed to be a president if you're not born in this country. >> why doesn't he show his birth certificate. >> reporter: a protracted public spat over where president obama was born. a spat that led to the president releasing his long form birth certificate. and while trump eventually dropped the issue. >> i would want to look at it.
the president was born in the u.s. until friday morning. 52 days before the 2016 presidential election. >> barack obama was born in the united states period. >> reporter: trump's concession comes after dancing around the issue. and with the caveat that he believes he is not to blame for the controversy. >> hillary clinton started the birther controversy. i finished it. >> reporter: there was never any wasn't born in the united states and zero proof that hillary clinton had anything to do with making it an issue. but the clinton campaign wants voters, especially african-american voters, to know that trump was wrong and in their mind offensive. >> his campaign was founded on this outrageous lie. there is no erasing it in history. >> reporter: trump did not take questions explaining his change of heart instead making a pitch
honoring veterans for supporting his campaign. the clinton campaign argued his brief statement was not nearly enough. campaign manager robbie mook called his actions "disgraceful and sickening". and a poll taken by cnn one year ago this month showed that 80% of americans believe that barack obama was, indeed, born in the united states. chris and denise. >> denise: all right, ryan. the trump campaign has had a number in the past 24 hours. tells us more about that. >> yes, denise, the relationship between donald trump and his press has gotten increasingly frosty with the day. it's at a whole new level over the past 24 hours. trump has a group of journalists that travel with him everywhere and usually his stuff doesn't start until that group of journalistses is with him at his event. but yesterday he left them sitting on an airport tarmac
30 minutes away when the event started and started without them. they didn't get there until there was only three minutes left in his speech. and then today there is a smaller group of reporters called a pool that is used to kind of just go into smaller venues. today trump was supposed to take a tour of his new dc hotel and they left the editorial producer out of that pool. this is someone that could ask questions and make sure that this particular arrangement was not just an trump campaign. there's a serious lack of transparency here with trump as he begins to increasingly keep the press away from his events. it's even that if you're not a fan of the press, and polls show people are skeptical of us and the media, this is not good for democracy and we are 52 days away from the presidential
with the media as well. thanks. senator bernie sanders will campaign for hillary clinton in our area. he has public events talking about education. you want to rsvp, though. we have a link on our poop. san -- on our app. and after john litko will be in ohio to campaign for mrs. he may be known for his role on third rock on the sun. he lived in lakewood as a teenager. he'll be attending canvas kickoffs and phone banks. how about that. the city of cleveland heights will return the naked trump statue. it was taken down last month on coventry road. the artist wants to have it auctioned off. there were more in other cities. the proceeds would go to benefit funding public art in coventry
to establish initial funding at heights arts for future public art projects in cleveland heights. >> all i have to say is nobody needs to see all of that. that statue is just not -- no one needs to see that. >> no. niece any but, hey, if it's helping out the arts, god bless portion of that statue. try to figure out what part we were blocking. okay. never mind. let's go to the alert tonight and tomorrow. not so much this evening. it's going to be later on tonight and then through the day tomorrow and even tomorrow night. but we took out the alert for sunday which means we're not expecting enough rain to have an alert going. it will just be more isolated stuff. so it is looking better now for the browns game. at least that's my thought
and it starts after 11:00. so over night going into tomorrow morning, that's when we could see one wave. then perhaps a bit of a break and then later on in the afternoon once we get some daytime heating going. but i do want to repeat that we are not anticipating severe storms. all right. these aren't going to be big explosive thunderstorms. yes, you could have some downpours, but i don't think it's going to be too serious of a situation. but it could be enough to ruin your outdoor plans tomorrow. so, again, that will start later on tonight. waves of rain and storms sunday afternoon. front comes through and the extended forecast is looking pretty dry. it is warm. 82 in cleveland right now. we did make it up to 83. the humidity is going up. so it will be a warmer night tonight. sandusky 79. akron-canton 81. look at mansfield there at 81. and wooster is at 80. so for the weekend, i always want to remind everybody download the app.
we have a ten day forecast on there. and when you customize it to your neighborhood, you get the updates on the hourlies. and it looks similar to this where 7:00, 76 is the cleveland forecast. and then there you go. 3:00 in the morning, see those thunderstorm icons. 5:00 a.m. so that's when the first wave could get in. notice how the chance of rain goes up. and it's going to be warm. in fact, 5:00 in the morning, the app is indicating temperatures still around 70 in the cleveland but waves of showers and storms coming through. it's going to be humid. so a little sticky feel out there. and as far as the planner goes, look at that. 7:00 a.m., we're still around 70. rain and storms at noon. 74. and then 5:00 mostly cloudy. muggy and showers and storms in the area. akron-canton 76 degrees with showers and storms for you. all right.
if you're going out to the friday night football game. i think you're going to be good. in fact, pretty nice evening coming up. good for the tribe game at least tonight. but then watch what happens here over night going into tomorrow morning. by 8:00 a.m., this is that first wave i was telling you about and that wave that the app was showing you here. and then we could get into a bit of a break. so that's what i'm talking about here. it's not going to be an all day thing. but then 2:00 to 5:00 tomorrow afternoon, that's when we could be looking ate and storms. and it's going to be warm. tonight 8:00 temps still well in the 70s. that's above normal. 11:00, we don't really drop much. and even over night, 2:00 in the morning, we're still going to be around 70. and even into early in the morning there as that first wave of rain comes into play. much more on the weekend. we'll talk about that smaller chance of rain on sunday and the extended forecast looking pretty
guys, back to you. >> denise: jeff, thanks. we're learning more now about the officer who fatally shot a 13-year-old columbus boy while investigating a reported armed robbery. >> chris: according to the columbus police union, brian mason is a expected member of the force. the case started with a 911 call about a robbery. police say the officers followed potential suspects into an alley when tyree king pulled a weapon from his waist band and then was shot. mason, who is is on administrative leave as the shooting is investigated. his file does include several shootings, including one in december of 2012 when a man refused to drop his weapon during a dispute with another man. well, she has been dead for nearly two decades but the nation remains captivated by the
i did not kill my daughter john bonet. >> there's a ransom note here. >> it's a ransom note? >> denise: well, investigators have had a lot of leads over the years but never enough to arrest a suspect. >> god knows who you are and we will find you. >> denise: well, world renowned experts along with cbs news presenting a two night documentary. the case j it starts this sunday night right here on cleveland 19 beginning at 8:30 p.m. still so many unanswered questions in that case. >> chris: it's something that if you go to colorado and you bring it up, people still talk about it today 20 years after the event. >> denise: so sad. >> chris: they never found a killer. cleveland 19 uncovering new information on a school money crisis. a $15 million deficit.
our working conditions which is going to affect the student's learning conditions. >> reporter: jeff is the president of the parma education association or pea. he says some teachers are worried about the deficits affects. >> those effects are going to be felt by the people in the trenches and the people in the trenches every day are the students and the teachers. so we're concerned how that's going to affect both of our situations. >> reporter: the pea learned about the deficit after the board of education sent this letter alluding to looming consolidated some of its schools shifting 8th grade to the high school in an effort to save $11.2 million. but in the may letter, the board wrote that the former treasurer and superintendent never tracked the money going in and out following the move and instead of saving money the move ended up costing. >> they knew their financial position. they knew they had to make some concession. they had to lay some people off. >> reporter: the same month the
teachers were let go. and now with the news of the deficit, the pea fears more layoffs. >> kids are at the center of everything that we do. so poor decisions by add pltion when it comes to financial decisions. going to have harmful effects. >> reporter: shanice dunning, cleveland 19 news. >> chris: the district says it's currently working on a plan to balance that budget and the plan will be presented at a board m like coming up here tonight at 6:00, new developments on the investigation into the death of a state trooper. and tonight when trooper kenneth valez's youngest son takes the field for his high school football game, there will be a huge show of support for his family. we'll have live reports coming up. paul orlousky asks where are cleveland's crossing guards, he got answers. now he's looking at drivers to see if they're slowing down in
