5:01 am
starting to roll through, roads will be coming little damp, wet, and accident, north on 95, this is 95 northbound, at woodhaven road, so, look out, you can see the shine on the roadway there, and here is some fog, a look at route 40, and route 47, just outside of millville. down there in south jersey, where i was last week, for the breakfast segment. live look at the benny, see how the roads are wet? and again, slowly but surely the skyline is disappearing there, in the background. what's not running? day number three, as we mention, no sit buses or trolleys, no market frankford, no broad street subway, regional rails are running, expect the crowded conditions, get your tickets in advance. norristown high-speed line is operating, all of the suburban buses and and trolley routes operating, but again, not crossing over into the city line. and paratransit operating again today, but again, by appointment only, and make sure you allow extra time there. i think sue the weather will be a game changer for today for sure. >> we've had two decent days,
5:02 am
couple every decent days this week, so far. but things are going to change. that's why, instead after ten, which we've had the for the past two, we will gave you a eight today. and yep, bus stop buddy very happy. he's holding his bologna sandwich today i think it is because it is national sandwich day. so we're asking you on twitter to tell us your favorite inside after sandwich. flyers won last night by the way, so he has his flyers cap. did you see him behind all of that fog? yes, fog in pottstown, in lancaster, in trenton, and yes, down in millville, new jersey, so, that's the one thing that might slow you down, rain not expected to arrive until later on today. so, we'll have enough warm air moving in to get us to 78 degrees before the afternoon is through, then some showers, close to our record high temperature today, sunset time 5:56. more coming in in the seven day forecast just ahead. >> thank you. >> covering this breaking news, that's just coming in right now. >> police found a burned body
5:03 am
along 76 eastbound. let's get right to the scene. steve keel think took place around 2:30, very active scene. >> here is the schuylkill eastbound, see it goes underground here, where it goes through south philadelphia. and we will move left. there is a 20-foot embankment off the entrance ramp. you see this is the ramp if you are going to go to south jersey, up on 76 east, you see the sign walt whitman bridge. so you see the fire department, police department, and chris, going to step up on one of the rocks there, you will see medical examiner van that's pulled up, and they've loaded what was left, the remains of a burning body, found where you see that white sheet, right off the ramp. with was somebody thrown off the ramp there and set a fire, or was somebody sleeping under here because this is a homeless encampment. right below where chris is, see tide to the fence, a trash bag where the homeless try to pick up after themselves sometimes. off and on this intersection here where passyunk avenue ends, you see people stopped, stop traffic, with a cup in their hand looking for money.
5:04 am
so no one knows who this person is obviously, they don't know if it is male or female. they don't know whether somebody was murdered, then set, the body set on fire, meaning they'll have to take that body to the medical examiner, do an up a zip, try to somehow figure out if somebody was shot, stabbed, strangled or beat tone death before being set on fire. we don't know the extent of the fire. but it was a fire at 2:30. peeping drive here to the right down on the schuylkill expressway, we're looking up, and they saw a fire burning. and they got on their cell phones and called 911. multiple calls. so both the police department and the fire department got here. but you can see, the traffic going past the other way, toward eastbound 76, so there is a lot of traffic around here, going 60 miles an hour, and people still did the good thing and call 911. so a lot of questions. is it a murder mystery? probably. nobody sets themselves on fire usually. rare protest sometimes in the far east, but nothing like that around here. this has been scene of mob hit
5:05 am
in the past growing up around here, so who knows. they'll have to do a lot to find an identity, then find cause of death, now that they got the fire out. to the left where chris is, they brought chase, the accelerant sniffing dog here to see if there is any evidence of accelerant still laying around here, maybe some evidence of who ever set that fire and what they used to set the fire. so, an investigation just getting underway, we're two and a half hours since those 911 calls. thomas, karen? >> great work there, steve, you have gotten an lot of facts and details on, that we appreciate it, thank you. also happening at 5:05, day three of the septa strike. still mass transit, mass confusion. >> been a lot of confusion. talks ended shortly after midnight about 12:15. so are the two sides any closer to a deal? lauren johnson from the fernrock station this morning. how close are we, if any? >> well, thomas, so close, but so far away. so yesterday, as you said, actually this morning, they pushed away from the negotiating table around
5:06 am
12:15 a.m. still problems for passengers who used septa late last night sometime around 11:00 the septa board chairman sent out a statement calling on the union leadership to negotiate in good fate the union said, well, not ready to respond, but we will. new sticking point in the negotiation that is we had not heard publicly until now is an issue with cameras, record times. the union wants recording times limited, septa says they want to be able to review more of the recordings before and after any accidents. and of course, the talks are still surrounding pensions and safe working conditions. political leaders have been showing up at the center city sheridan all week to monitor those negotiations, that could put nearly 5,000 workers back to work. >> are we close at all? are we any closer than we were earlier? there are hundreds of thousands every people wait to go see what goes on in this hotel. are we any closer than we were this morning? >> just keep working, that's
5:07 am
what we are doing. >> proposal. they went back to the executive board. i'm sure that they did some tweaking, did some tweaking, coming back, again, as long as, again, the key is talking, they got to talk. >> reporter: and if the talks continue to breakdown, septa leaders have said they will seek an injunction to force workers back on the job for election day if the strike goes into next week. so negotiations set to resume this morning at 11:00 a.m., which means, headaches for the rush hour, for those who count on septa to get to work and school. karen, thomas? >> you said it, lauren, hopefully today will be the day, thank you. >> it is 5:07 right now. we have this breaking news that's just coming in from overseas. we have learned that 2us service members have died, two others were wounded, after fighting the taliban in afghanistan. nato just made this announce: they said those service members came under fire during train advise and assist nation. nato has not released the identities of the service members, still trying to inform the victims' families. 5:07. you decide. five days to election day.

>> 5:15, this thursday morning. number of people impacted, i talked to septa earlier this morning, the buses, trains, trolleys, not running because of the strike, typically make 884,000 trips caring 400,000 riders each and every day. those folks are looking for alternate means here this morning. the regional rails usually carry 65,000 riders, each and every day, so part of the 400,000 trying to squeeze into the empty seats on the regional rails, remember, the regional rail commuters just went through a headache of their own with all of those trains being pulled off. they just, in the last couple every months, a hot mess on their hands, and now they're not too happy, that all of the
5:16 am
extra folks are coming on, trying to grab ahold of their ride n so that's an example of how many people are impacted just alone with the septa side of it, not it mention, how many folks in their cars, that are dealing with all of the extra gridlock, because of the strike. a live look here, 95 northbound, an accident right near woodhaven. look at this guy, walking around on the roadway. that's definitely not good. i'm not sure if that's an officer. i know they had a rescue squad on the scene there. be careful, out there dealing with the fog. you can see it kind of rolling in over 95 here, in delco, and it is causing like a real fine glaze, just like some wet roads, especially, in the suburbs, and in south jersey, and you throw some leaves there, it is almost like trying to stop your car on ice. so be careful, all of the kids are back at school again today, full day for both public and parochial schools, what's not running again, the buses, trains, trolleys, within the city limits. regional rales are operating. pack your patience there, septa says make sure to have
5:17 am
your particular net advance there, not collecting tickets on the trains themselvesment like they typically would. you know, you'll have to hand your ticket in before you board the train, the norristown high-speed line operating, suburban buses and trolleys, again, they're operating but not crossing over, into the city limit, and the power transit customers, again, give yourselves some extra time, especially if you have a doctors appointment. i'm not sure if the shpg trips are honored today, sue, with paratransit folks. but they're definitely taking it to the doctor's appointment. i think today the weather is going to be a game changer for this. >> could be, bob kelly, could be. because for the first time since the strike started we've got some showers in the forecast, and it is all because of this cold front. we expect that to come through later on tonight, ahead of it, we have some showers, the high pressure, which has been our weather maker since monday, halloween, doesn't it seem like a long time ago? halloween? anyway that's out of here. cold front will come through. see some showers already in the northwestern part of the
5:18 am
state. but nothing has made its way close by. just yet. visibility is our issue right now, with all of the moisture in the air. we've got fog in pottstown, trenton, lancaster, and reduced visibility in a lot of places including philly international. so we'll keep close eye on that situation. it is in the mid 50's, in philadelphia, 48 in pottstown, but in the 60s in wilmington, delaware? temperatures kind of all over the place, and winds are not really an issue. that's why we're getting fog. so as we look ahead in the future cast, maybe by noon, we'll see few showers north and west of the city. after that, just spotty showers coming through, but with the cold air behind the front, we could see isolated thunderstorm. could happen. 78 degrees, close to record today, the record is 80. windy, chilly, and 20 degrees colder tomorrow. along with the winds it, will really be kind after shock to the system. because it doesn't take long to get used to warm temperatures. nice over the weekend, don't forget the time changes on saturday night. and then, as we head into election day on tuesday, thomas and karen it, looks
5:19 am
like the weather will not be an issue. so you have to go out and vote. >> as long as we're seeing that sun. >> that's great news. thank you, sue. >> 5:19. following developing story this morning, lead has been found in water sources at five cherry hill public school buildings, the samples taken as part of state ordered water testing in all new jersey public schools. officials are suggesting parents concerned about possible effect are being encourage today consult with their health providers. people in moorestown are very upset about brown water pouring out of their faucets. it is not the first time. in fact, environmental activist err i can brock very much involved, the same erin they made the move bye. brown water pouring from sinks and harmful. the state is urging the township to shut down the water wells and out source. the mayor says despite the color, water is safe. you can imagine, nobody wants to drink it. >> we've asked dep to help and we would like them to take it

5:32 am
an accident right under the ben franklin parkway in the construction zone. only one lane open. anyone who typically comes into center city, you know the drill here. tight squeeze to begin with. there is the accident right here with only that left lane open. look at this, already a parking lot, and this is causing a domino effect back on to the schuylkill expressway. the schuylkill coming into the city, jammed both directions, trying to get on to the vine. if you are getting ready to leave the house right now, i would go for one the drivers, kelly driver, martin luther king drive as alternate. dealing with some fog over here in south jersey. i think the fog, this morning, may be some light rain this afternoon, is going to totally change the playing field for everybody dealing with the septa strike. be ready for the crowded trains, and the platforms, along all of the regional rails, again, this morning, get your tickets in advance. you want to try for the flex hours, 9:30 is that time. if you can check with the bosses, hey, maybe postpone my trip until about 9:30, yep, the down side is you will have to work little later

obviously, but just throwing out some options, maybe even working from home along the way. ninety-five not bad at all. again the roads are little damp from the fog that's rolling through, sue, that will be game changer for the rest of the day? >> yes, as if there wasn't enough to slow you down, fog could do it. so we have bus stop buddy kind of in a fog this morning. that's right. literally, and kind of in our heads. you know, notice, we added umbrella to the ensemble today, because the possibility of rain this afternoon, the sandwich might get wet if he doesn't eat it first. temperatures #', 50's, with the areas of fog to start your day, in fact, we have poor visibility in lancaster, pottstown, trenton right now, philadelphia, international, reduced visibility there, to 4 miles. quarter mile visibility, in wilmington, delaware, right now, we have that rain on the way, see it in the northwestern part of the state, but we're thinking most of it will hold off for us, until well after lunchtime, maybe 3:00, 4:00 in the afternoon, here in philadelphia. anyway, 56 degrees right now. and as we mention most of the
5:34 am
temperatures, four's, 50's, 67 degrees in wilmington, plan on a little bit of sunshine, a lot of cloud cover after the fog dissipates this morning. and a near record high temperature of 78 degrees. but don't get used to it. >> we need to get bus stop budd a lunch box. >> true. >> fox 29 lunch box. >> i know, the bread will get stale. >> thanks, sue. 5:34. covering breaking news this morning. >> police say they've found a burning body, right along 76, let's get out to steve keeley, where he is. steve, they had some special dogs out there? >> reporter: no one is south here any longer. sorry you didn't get the words but i told the station about a half hour ago, all of the investigators left. so that gives you a sense of what they're doing now, chris will walk up to the scene here. you see 76 to the east, right there, there is the underground highway that is known as the schuylkill expressway here in south philly. to the left you see the ramp 76 east to the walt whitman bridge. so it was found right between
5:35 am
there. now you see this embankment here? a lot of homeless have cups, look for money for all of the south philly traffic here. as chris is walking here, notice a lot of things. they have plants, one homeless guy even with a sense of humor slow man shield sign, but they live under there. and this was a body found on fire on a mattress. okay? now, look there is was like the warmest november night in a while, maybe record day, right? so nobody would be setting a fire to keep warm. so they believe somebody murdered somebody. now, i just got off the phone with a high ranking police source who says the investigation now points that they are leaning toward it being a body of a woman. karen, you mentioned dogs. chase is the name of the ac sell rent sniffing dog with the atf. and chase did not pick up according to the source any scents of any accelerant like got lean which is strange. so they don't even know how the body was set on fire, but it was mattress and fully clothed body that they believe was a woman. here is the other thing, we've
5:36 am
got, thomas, talking to the medical examiner. they do preliminary look before the autopsy, and there is no obvious sign of trauma. now, look, this is a badly burned body. it is hard to notice anything. but sometimes even with a badly burned body you can see whether somebody has a bunch bullet holes in them or a knife sticking out of them, et cetera, or something tide around their neck, say like alert cords or something for strangulation. so no idea on cause of death before the fire. lets guess to video. you will see the scene out here after several people dialed 9911, and were driving along the schuylkill and said hey there is a fire on 76 east embankment. so the fire department gets here. they get their hose out of the truck. they put the fire. they say hey this was a body, an adult body here. and so it becomes a crime scene. here is inspector scott small, the commander on the overnight shift. >> just before 2:30 a.m.,
5:37 am
