good morning, america. right now, police raids in miami and around the world in a major corruption scandal. allegations the u.s. was robbed of hosting the world cup. more severe weather hitting the houston area this morning. prosecutors in the kayak murder case now detailing how she let her fiance drown. we have a lot to get to this morning, including a big "gma" investigation of pick pocketing. a professional pick pocket tells us what to do to make sure it doesn't happen to you. some really helpful tips just ahead. we begin with new revelations on the woman accused of killing her fiance while kayaking on the hudson river. prosecutors saying she removed the plug on his kayak so it
7:31 am
would fill with water. >> reporter: vincent viafore's body was missing for more than a month. this week end, it was found. his fiance indicted for his murder by a grand jury. this morning, new allegations in the death of vincent viafore. as prosecutors indict his fiance angelika graswald on murder. >> the deviceceased was reported missing opinion on april 30th miss graswald was charged. >> reporter: she's eye caused edaccused of killing him last month. she pulled the paddle away from him as he struggled to stay above water. the d.a. saying she failed to call for help in a timely man nor. and a witness saw her intentionally capsize her own
7:32 am
kayak. after the disappearance, she described the frantic moments in the 40-degree water. >> he was trying to figure out how the paddle the waves. they were getting crazy. and -- and then i just saw him flip. >> reporter: prosecutors say the 35-year-old admitted she tampered with viafore's kayak. her alleged motive? some $250,000 of insurance policies. telling police it felt good knowing he had died. >> he had no leash or teter to keep him tied to the kayak. no wet or dry suit. he didn't take a single precaution. i think what happened was, they were overcome by a powerful hudson river. >> reporter: graswald remains behind bars with a bond of $9 million and will be arraigned on
7:33 am
friday. she'll plead not guilty. >> let's talk to dan abrams. a lot of choppy waters that day. how do prosecutors prove she killed him? >> based on what we know right now this is not an easy case. the key is her statements. the authorities are saying that she basically confessed to it. her lawyer saying there was a language barrier. she misspoke. they didn't understand what she was saying. she's not a native american speaker. et cetera. there are comments in her diary which are incriminating. then the possibility of inconsistent statements as to what happened. that will the the key to the case. without being able to demonstrate her own comments are incriminating, i don't think they have a particularly strong case. >> though prosecutors say they have witnesses watching what was happening on the water. >> yeah but you know what? witnesses watch someone in a kayak from afar and distinguishing between turning yourself into the water and
7:34 am
falling into the water because you were frantically scrambling and scared. the witnesses will say, it didn't see that choppy. maybe she tried more than once to overturn the kayak. i'm making this up. but, that can be interpreted in many ways. the prosecutors focus on what she did after. >> a week later, she's singing karaoke in a bar looking happy. >> and putting up instagram pictures. don't forget about casey anthony. the mother who was accused of killing her 2-year-old who went out partying and put up pictures of herself partying shortly after her child died. found not guilty. i mean i have never seen so incriminating a post-death photos as in the casey anthony case. but the jurors said sorry, that's not enough in and of itself to convict. i think you're again going to need her statements to be believable and credible as incriminating without the sort
