spring was approached by a man asking inappropriate questions about their bodies. montgomery county police tell us they want to get the word out. >> we have nothing to suggest that they're related at this time, but we wanted to make sure that people were aware so they could keep their eyes open so that we don't have anything more serious happen. >> reporter: officer brenda thomas says police wonder if there have been other incidents in the area and would like to hear from anybody who has had a similar experience but hasn't reported it yet. a heartbreaking story out of glenarden, maryland. a fire ripped through a home this morning claiming the lives of a man and two young girls. the flames broke out around 4 a.m. at the house on leslie avenue. when firefighters arrived, they rushed in to rescue four people who were trapped. they found them, but a 36-year- old man and his two daughters ages 8 and 4 did not survive. >> it's tough. our kids played together daily every day after school, all day

the a weather alert this evening, a powerful winter storm has been slamming the midwest all day. now it is moving our way, parts of kansas buried in 14 inches of snow creating a driving disaster across that state. could create a few problems in our area particularly due to the timing. let's check in with sue palka now. >> that timing probably won't be before the morning commute, but there's a chance of a messy mix around for the evening commute and certainly any time after noon tomorrow. let me snow you where it is on radar now. you'll see this is pushing into southwestern virginia. so you would think if it's already there, can't it be here by morning? no. high pressure will block it for a bit longer. we probably will see nothing but spotty precip well to our west in the morning. that will change as the day goes on. it does not look like this will come together in a big way for our area. it's going to be very light precipitation that may develop. in fact, we don't have any advisories for the metro.
they're all out to our west because there there could be a combination of snow and maybe ice in the higher elevations that could make for some travel troubles, but we still have to highlight the fact around here a very small, trace amount of sleet, could create some problems. while it will be very light we think this will develop any time after late morning into the early afternoon hours, could affect the evening commute because these road temperatures will be cold, not like some of these other storms where everything melted. after a few hours in the evening it looks like it will transition to all rain, especially after 6:00. it looks like there will be another storm we'll have to keep an eye on for saturday. we'll talk more about that and show you that fox 5 accuweather seven-day forecast in a few minutes. >> you can track live doppler radar with a fox 5 weather app on your droid, iphone or ipad. search d.c. weather. anne arundel county has a new county executive tonight. the county council elected laura newman, the economic development chief from howard

are leaving it? where are you from? >> i canceled my room. >> reporter: did you hear what happened here? >> yes. wrong bus driver. >> reporter: the bus driver told her the body of 21-year- old eliza lam was discovered in one of the hotel's water tanks. she was last seen two weeks ago acting very strangely on the elevator security video. the tank was checked when guests began to complain about water pressure at the historical hotel that's trying hard to upgrade its image. it maybe surrounded by remodeled high end rentals and restaurants, but it's a block away from skid row and the locals remember it well. >> i have not really stayed in there, only maybe a couple of times. the rooms are pretty cool, though. >> reporter: it's a beautiful motel. are they charging you $70 a night? >> no. >> reporter: it was only $14 a night in 1985 when convicted killer richard ramirez, the night stalker, stayed on the 14th floor. although none of his 14 murders
were committed in the hotel which also housed austrian serial killer jack undervager in 1991. he killed skid row prostitutes the same way he killed his mother, strangling them with a bra. rumor has it l.a.'s most notorious unsolved murder victim is the 1964 stabbing death of a retired phone operator. her tiny room was a mess. no one was arrested. and there was 27-year-old pauline knotten jumped out the window killing herself and the pedestrian she landed on. now with guests leaving upon hearing about a naked body in the water tank -- >> using water for washing hands, drinking, brushing my teeth. i'm really gusted. >> reporter: i'm thinking maybe they could make it a haunted hotel and bring people in. would you do that? >> i can't really comment. >> reporter: the russian tourists we saw earlier going into the hotel rushing off before we could ask if they
knew about the death which may end up adding to the cecil's sad history, but it's nothing short of a tragedy to her family and remains under investigation. up next an outrageous birthday party, the bowling alley may look innocent, but the party inside very adult, why the birthday boy's mother is facing charges. >> and the white house easter egg ticket lottery is open. see which internet celebrity is helping spread the news next. >> this is fox 5 news edge at 11:00.

there's bad news about this year's flu shot. shawn yancy has your fox 5 top five. >> up first tonight, brian, americans are making better choices when it comes to fast food. no. 5, according to a new survey americans are eating less fast food. it accounts for about 11% of the calories in an adult's daily diet. those numbers aren't great but are lower than the 13% from 2003 to 2006. no. 4, bad news about this year's flu vaccine, officials say it's only 9% effective in protecting seniors against the most common and dangerous strain of the bug and only 50% effective overall. experts say the results are disappointing and highlight the need for a better vaccine. no. 3, when it comes to cleaning your hands, grab soap and water before the hand sanitizer. experts found care facilities that use alcohol-based hand sanitizers had more outbreaks of the norovirus even though it kills the viruses that causes
colds and flu. it does not kill bacteria that causes intestinal troubles. no. 2, who talks more, men or women? researchers from the university of maryland found women really do talk more than men, about 13,000 words a day to be precise. there's a reason for this, ladies. women have a higher amount of the fox p2 protein which affects how much a person talks. no. 1, you want to take your kids to the white house easter egg roll? sign up now through 10 a.m. monday. go to recreation.gov to enter the online lottery. winners will be notified march 1st. the 135th egg roll will take place monday, april 1st, the day after easter. that's tonight's fox 5 top five. five. the white house called on a viral video star to help promote this year's easter egg roll. president obama sent a special message to his protegee kid
president. >> kid president, looks like you got my message. >> yes, mr. president, i got your message. this is historic. the white house easter egg roll. kids dancing, eggs rolling, i'm in. >> kid president is also known as 9-year-old robby novak. he stars in popular motivational videos and has gotten tens of millions of hits on youtube. >> he is hilarious, so cute, too. got a little something coming. >> it makes it nice to hear about the easter egg roll, although often that's really cold, too isn't it? we have a little wintery mix coming. i don't think you need to worry about it so much in the morning, but maybe in a light fashion in the afternoon and a big concern is the fact it will be real cold tonight and we don't warm up a lot tomorrow. typically when we have little things coming through, we say don't worry it, won't stick to the roads. in this case it could because the pavement man chilly. already down to 32 -- has been
chilly. already down to 32 and widespread 20s even through the clouds. so pavement will be cold. the good news is most of this very light precipitation and i'm talking trace amounts here won't get in for the most part until late morning, early afternoon. so hopefully we can warm things up a bit although only into the low and mid-30s most likely. 28 degrees overnight. clouds will increase. most places will be well about below freezing which is important when a little light mix comes through. 30 sib tomorrow for the district that. should prevent freezing rain but aing the snow or sleet can fall at that -- a little snow or sleet can fall at that temperature with a light accumulation possible depending how much precipitation we're able to get. we highlight the fact there could be slick spots around in the afternoon and evening hours. at 8 a.m. cloudy, spotty chance for snow or sleet but not widespread, 30
degrees. by noon a little better chance we're seeing snow and sleet, 33 degrees and sleet is an ice pellet. sometimes that can be a little more slippery than snow on the streets. 4:00 we're getting that wintery mix at 35 degrees. that's why we think that afternoon and evening commute may require your patience and perhaps a little extra time. this storm has really been taking quite a toll on the middle part of the country. we've had lots and lots of dangerous situations, treacherous ice storm on the southern end of it, thunder snow and thunder rains and as you look at d.c., you can see rain is starting to move into southwestern virginia and icing going on in portions of central west virginia. that still is not going to get in until later in the day because high pressure is just up to our north and east. it will block it for a while. the advisories are flying to our west, not so much for the district. keep an eye on tucker in the morning. see if they decide to put us in an advisory. i think it will be so light it
might not happen here, but in the mountains an inch or 2 of snow with maybe .1-inch of ice is possible. that's why those advisories begin tonight through friday. this area of low pressure producing the snow will weaken and essentially the precipitation will divide into two chunks, the snow portion of it going to our north. we're kind of in the middle with the light stuff and a second area of low pressure will develop with rain down here. that will run up the coast bringing us more cold rain saturday and more snow to new england, but in the meantime it will just be a small amount of snow and sleet for us. we can't put a number on it. i think it would be a coating of light accumulation and that may not happen in many areas but slick spots definitely could. a very quick look at futurecast and run this out to tomorrow morning so you can see it's not widespread. by 5:00, 6:00 it's probably a little rain down to the south and we expect this to change over to a cold rain going through the evening hours friday. your fox 5 accuweather seven-
day forecast, a cold day tomorrow at 36, not a whole lot warmer saturday with cold rain showers mainly in the morning and early afternoon. we brighten up a lot for sunday and monday with temperatures near 50 degrees. perhaps another wintery mix tuesday at 48, colder for wednesday and thursday. cold is the theme of scott's first story. he's talking hockey. here's his sports report. the hockey season is flying by. tonight marks the third of a season in the books -- marks 1/3 of the season in the books now and the three wins of the caps are against teams in the bottom half of the eastern conference. tonight back at verizon center against one of the best teams in hockey, the new jersey devils. after a scoreless opening period caps on the power play. mathieu perreault puts in the second effort, caps up 1-0. troy brouwer fires and caps back out on top, 2-1. to the
their we go, off the face-off adam larson, holtby, holtby with the save but the rebound and goal. equalizer. kovalchuk, the one timer beats holtby and so do the devils. caps drop to 0-7-1 in teams in the top six. 3-2 the final. >> you got to lead and give them two five on three's in one period, you know, obviously that's too much, you know. i thought maybe a couple calms were tough calms, but i didn't think -- calls were tough calls, but i didn't think alex's was a call. bottom line was it's too many. a bizarre week of match play championship in arizona next.
the wizards struck a trade deadline deal today shipping jordan crawford off to boston in exchange for a couple guys, guard leandro barbosa and 7- footer jason collins. crawford hadn't seen much playing time since the return of john wall. some golf today, crews hard at work getting the course ready after snow. today is the weigh-in, tomorrow night the fight. d.c.'s lamont peterson arriving today in anticipation of his 140-pound defense of his -- all right. where are we going? how about some golf now?
