vehicles. they say: the fire started from an electrical short. no one was hurt. 3 3 (jen) now to a mystery overseas... a woman from florida was found dead... in italy. and the circumstances surrounding her death... are *very suspicious. 3 (jen the body of 35- year-old "ashley olsen" was found saturday, in her apartment in florence. italian police say: she was found *naked, with bruises and scratches on her neck. olsen had been living in the city for some time. her boyfriend allegedly found her. he went looking for her, saying: he was worried for her safety, because he hadn't heard from her for several days. olsen is originally from "summer haven," near st. augustine... and word of her death, hit the tight-knit community hard. 3 "i can't imagine a person who would hurt her, she is a gentle, a kind, a beautiful, friendly, lovely girl and it's an awful shock. we've got a great community here of people and everyone loved her." 3 --jen 3
saying that truth is stranger than fiction... but even in hollywood, this is a weird story.((jen)) as we hear from fox's robert gray... movie star sean penn went south of the border to interview el chapo before he was captured. 3 mexican authorities *got shorty.* but before they captured joaquin guzman... the mexican drug lord met up with sean penn. the actor and one of the most wanted men in the world got together for a story penn was doing for rolling stone magazine. asked whether he believed drugs destroy humanity and bring harm.. guzman said it's a reality that drugs destroy.. but claims that where he grew up there were no other ways to make a living. in the video... guzman says if there was no demand... there would be no drugs. guzman also says that he has not used drugs himself for about twenty years. he also claims that he only uses violence to defend himself. the meeting between sean penn and el chapo was set up by mexican actress kate del castillo. apparently... guzman.. who is as famous for his escapes from prison as he is for his far-reaching and bloody drug cartel .. was interested in having a movie made about his life. now that he is back in custody.. the united states wants guzman extradited so he can face drug trafficking charges north of the border. one security expert says it would be wise for the mexican government to hand guzman over to the u-s before he pulls another houdini:hope says: "his escape is possible and even probable. the longer he stays in a mexican prison the more relaxed the penitentiary system will get, the security guards will be more exposed to corruption and intimidation, and the more probable a new escape will be.." it's worth noting that rolling stone violated common journalistic procedures by showing the article to el chapo before publication. they say.. however.. that the drug lord
say: it could take a very long time, as his lawyers file legal appeals and try to keep their client south of the border. the defense team has three days to present arguments against extradition, and 20-days to present supporting evidence. 3 3 ((walter the showdown begins with three weeks until the iowa caucuses. presidential candidate hillary clinton is neck and neck with bernie sanders. donald trump and ted cruz are also locked in a tight race in the hawkeye state. 3 (walter) they were buddy- buddy on the campaign trail for months... but now trump is going after cruz...questioning his citizenship. 3 ((walter it's the same kind of thing he did over president obama's birthplace. cruz was born in canada, but his mother was a u-s citizen, which he says makes him eligible to run. but trump casts doubt on his citizenship. he says if it's not taken care of now, democrats should file a lawsuit. trump offered some advice on fox news sunday. 3 trump exchange with chris wallace: he had a joint citizenship. and, what i told ted to do is go into court for declaratory judgment because, you know, you can't run -- i'm talking about from his standpoint, not from mine -- i
wallace: i know, but people say you're trolling him and- trump: i'm not trolling him wallce: you're under the guise that's helping him, you're sticking in the knife.trump: well, i'm not. what he should do is ask for declaratory judgment because you know what? wallace: but he says it's not an issue, and in fact when you raised it, he posted a video of the fonz jumping the shark, andtrump: ok- it's just games, look it's just games.--walter 3 no word on if democrats say they will challenge it. senators say: they're *not getting involved in the dispute. 3 ((jen)) it started right off the bat... ((walter)) the *first presenters were *bleeped during the golden globes last night. 3 ((walter when we come back... the gowns... the gaffes... and the biggest applause, at hollywood's first big party of the year.
3 so, did you watch the golden globe awards last night? you probably *saw, more than you *heard. (jen) a lot of it was "bleeped out"... and not just stuff from host ricky gervais, who *delights in making people squirm. but this is the globes... and it's always a little wild, right russell? 3 (russell) that's right... it is... probably because there's champagne at every table... or maybe it's just the vibe set by the group that hands out these awards: the hollywood foreign press... but it's usually the ceremony most likely to go off the rails. gervais skewered the stars, as expected... and complained often from the podium about how long the event was... but there were some great moments. here we go. 3 "and the golden globe goes too... leonardo
3 --russell well *that was a popular win... leonardo dicaprio took home the globe for "best actor in a motion picture, drama"... for his grueling, gripping, gritty role in the 18-20's thriller, "the revenant." that sets him up for a possible oscar win, next month... which, at age 41, would be his first. "the revenant" also won for best director, and best motion picture drama, which was a bit of a surprise. 3 (russell another film about surviving the odds, was good to matt damon. he won "best actor in a motion picture comedy" for his role in the stranded astronaut tale, "the martian"... and *it won "best motion picture comedy." a lot of people were scratching their heads over it being called a *comedy, but that's how they do it at the globes. 3 (russell jennifer lawrence won best *actress in that category... and she did it *without falling on the way to the podium. this time, she won for "joy"... another film directed by david o. russell, who directed her to wins in "silver linings playbook" and "american hustle." she thanked him for believing in
