bolted out of the cafe and called the police. detectives in montreal say they think that he's the one who stabbed and mutilated and mailed out body parts of his boyfriend, lin jun, seen here in this photo, from ctv. oh, and there's more as well. you're going to hear from magnotta himself. cnn has uncovered a 2007 interview of magnotta talking about being a stripper, about being an escort and about why the men the french press calls the butcher of montreal says he is so popular and well-liked in the video he called himself jimmy. first we want to take you live to the scene in berlin where the arrest went down today. that's where cnn's diana magnet is standing by live. i know you've been able to get there in the last hour and a half and collect some of the more recent details. last we spoke in the last hour, you were getting the full story of how the arrest went down literally in the seats behind you. >> reporter: yeah, literally.
3:01 pm
he walked in here at about 11:30 this morning and it was actually the employee working behind the counter who recognized him. he came in wearing a bomber jacket, but not disguised in any way. he apparently lifted up his sunglasses and said to the man behind the counter, monsieur, internet? and the man immediately thought he recognized him because his picture, his photo has been all over the news. he then showed him up to this space here, number 25, and sat him down here. he wasn't entirely sure if it was him. he decided to check on the internet himself, to cross-reference the photos that he had been seeing. he came up here a couple of times and he said when he came up, the man, magnotta, was looking at stories about him online. and he went out -- the employee went out, tried to call the police, tried to flag down a police convoy, which was
3:02 pm
passing, and brought them in and said, i think there's a man here who you want to speak to, it's the porno killer. the police came in here, talked to the man, talked to magnotta who apparently tried to give them a false name initially. when he realized the game was up, he said, you've got me. no resistance at all. he's now in police custody. a calm end to a horrific crime, a grisly crime and an international manhunt ending up right here in this cafe. >> diana, that seems really remarkable given the amount of attention that people have said he craves. in fact, the profilers from the beginning of this case have said he's a narcissist. police in montreal made this comment about his tendency to look for attention. have a listen. >> we said from the beginning, the web had been used for him to glorify himself. and we believe that it's the web that brought him down. >> the web, as you said, he was seen surfing pictures of himself
3:03 pm
or at least browsing the story of the international manhunt. so, diana, quickly, do you think that the berlin police had any idea that he was actually in their city, let alone their country? last we heard, he was being tracked by his cell phone in france. >> reporter: last we heard, he was in france. and the police in france were following various sitings sight he had been there, at a party, sighting that he had been in the railway station on sunday. but we don't know from german police yet whether they had an indication whether he'd already come to this country. they said they don't know at this stage how he got here, whether it was by train or by bus. but it really does seem to have been the sort of acuity of this employee here in this internet cafe for spotting him that brought police to his attention finally, ashleigh. >> i think now you were on the extradition story to find out how, in fact, the canadians are going to get this man back and
3:04 pm
how quickly they'll get him back to face the first-degree murder charge. diana, appreciate that. moms do this all the time. they ask a teenager, a brother, a sister, somebody who's in their teens to watch over the younger kids, right? now a connecticut woman has been arrested after doing just that. when is it breaking the law to have a teenager babysit for you? the story is coming up.

3:07 pm
in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in texas, police have made a shocking discovery. take a look at the picture on your right and then that one as well. it's a socialite, allegedly swapping and collecting child pornography. cnn's affiliate reports that police raided the home of 41-year-old erica purr due finding a cache of traffic videos and photos of children on her computer. sunny hostin is on the case. sunny, the court documents say this had been going on for 13 years and she made some admissions here. >> she did. she admitted to swapping and collecting child pornography since 1999. i have to tell you, ashleigh, what was so shocking to me is that she's a woman, actually.
3:08 pm
i've prosecuted child sex crimes and worked with the fbi. and that's how the fbi found out about this, through file sharing. that's one thing everybody should know. the fbi does watch. and the fbi has a wonderful child porn unit. >> they can track, they can share with you and find out where you are and find out where your computer is. >> absolutely. what was shocking to me really is that statistically it is very rare for women to be involved in child porn. it's something we used to say at the justice department all the time, women and child porn don't go together. it's counterintoouitive, women mothers are usually very nurturing. >> sometimes money talks. this is a $50 billion a year business and that women who do get into it get into it for the money. >> it is a $50 billion a year business. sometimes i think it's even more because a lot of child porn is so underground. that's what my experience tells me. so perhaps -- we don't know what her motive is or motives have
3:09 pm
been. but we do know she's set for trial september -- this year, september 10th. >> that's like a nanosecond from now. >> i know. i'm certainly going to be following it. this, in my experience, is very rare. >> there's a defense for everything. but as i read through the facts as we know them, and the facts always change, this looks almost indefensible, the evidence they've got. >> it does. and juries don't like child pornographers. will we see the trial? who knows? a lot of times these things settle before it goes to trial. she's given a confession in this case. other thing that was interesting, she lives in a multimillion-dollar mansion with her attorney husband and the home is right across the street from a child playground. >> none of this equates. i don't see defendants like this. >> it's very odd. >> and in your history of doing this kind of work -- >> haven't seen it. >> head-scratcher.
3:10 pm
>> it is. >> i have two kids ages 5 and 6 and loads of kids in my neighborhood who are eager to babysit. and then i hear about a connecticut mother who was arrested for leaving her children at her home in the care of her 13-year-old son, a 4-year-old makes it out of the house, gets across the street. the neighbor says, this has happened before, i'm calling the police. what is the story here? is this not legal to leave your kids in the care of a 12 or 13-year-old, especially a sibling? >> i never think it's a good idea. whether or not it legal depends on the facts of the case. she's been charged with felony risk to a child because the 4-year-old was just wandering outside. >> that's happened to me. i like to think i'm a good mom. but you can't have your eyes at all times on two kids, especially when they have crazy legs. >> that's true. and i'm a mom, i have a 9-year-old and a 6-year-old. but you cannot expect a 13-year-old to care for not one, not two, but three children,
3:11 pm
ashleigh. she apparently has a 13-year-old boy who was watching a 1-year-old a 4-year-old and a 10-year-old. he had no idea that this 4-year-old walked out. and the babysitter was supposed to show up at 2:00. she left to go to church at 1:30. so for those 30 minutes, the children were left basically, in my view, unattended. >> morals are different than law. >> fires can happen, someone can break into a home. you just cannot -- >> notwithstanding -- >> 13 years old, not responsible for three years, i'm sorry. >> but there's no law on the books in connecticut and other states as well stating what age your babysitter has to be? >> that's right. >> it's dependent on what the babysitter is like? >> i have to tell you -- i wouldn't do it. >> some 13-year-olds are different than others. >> i don't think it's the smart thing to do. >> did you babysit at 13? >> i did not. i don't think a 13-year-old can be responsible for a 1-year-old,
3:12 pm
a 4-year-old -- >> you are going to hate me. i babysit at 13 regularly. >> yeah, i think it's bad. i know how quickly things -- and you know how quickly things can happen to children. >> do you know how long we could debate this topic? >> i'm sure i'll get tons of -- and please send them to me. i want to hear about it. >> sunny, thanks so much. prince philip's hospitalized. queen's jubilee going ahead. and a huge rock concert getting set to go in london. we'll take you there. a quick note for those of you heading out the door, you can take me with you. you can take cnn with you. if you're heading to work, you can get your cnn signal on your mobile phone or you desktop. go to cnn.com/tv. it's all there. oh!

3:15 pm
♪ london's big diamond jubilee party, what an event. it's under way. but the event is missing a really important guest, one prince philip, the queen's consort. her 90-year-old husband has been taken to the hospital suffering from a bladder infection.
3:16 pm
he's going to stay there at least a couple of days because they want to keep him under observation. make sure he's okay before they release him. the band is playing on in a huge way. thousands of people all getting together for this incredible concert, star-studded doesn't even begin to describe it. everybody's celebrating 60 years of their majesty and her reign. the end of the concert is going to be pretty cool because the queen herself is going to take to the stage and light the national beacon. my colleague, atika shubert, gets the bust assignments. i don't know if you got a ticket to get into that concert, my friend, but i would like to know the lowdown and when it's going to get under way. it's now about 8:00 or 9:00 in london right now, isn't it? >> reporter: that's right. it's under way already. and unfortunately i don't have a ticket to the concert. and i'm too far away to hear the music that's going on. there are so many people between here and the actual concert that you can't hear any of it.
3:17 pm
there are literally hundreds of thousands of people out for this concert today. and this concert is free. you have to get a ticket through a national lottery. that's how you actually get into the concert. it is an amazing event, all kinds of artists are there today. tom jones, elton john, paul mccartney. it's an amazing lineup. but unfortunately, the duke of edinburgh, suspect there to hear it and will be missing tomorrow's celebrations as well. a little bit of disappointment for the royal family and for those who may have been expecting to see him as well. >> it's so disappointing. i'm looking at the pictures that were up beside you. that was him on board that boat yesterday. the 210-foot beautiful boat that went down the thames. and he looked like he was in absolutely fine form with his sons and his grandsons. and then this news cast a shadow over everything. will it change everything going forward in the celebrations?
3:18 pm
>> reporter: it won't change any of the schedule, clearly. but it is a disappointment, as you point out. keep in mind, he turns 91 in just a few weeks. and i think that just to be on the safe side, they thought if he is feeling a bit ill, let's keep him in the hospital just to watch over him. and yesterday, it was an amazing celebration. all of those boats going down the thames. but it did mean the queen and the duke were out in freezing, rainy weather for hours. so it really must have been hard on them. and so perhaps they felt, to be on the safe side, let's give him a rest today and see how it goes. >> that's probably a good idea. but i have to be honest with you. i love the royals. i'm part of the commonwealth where i was born in canada. so i eat up all that stuff. all the cnn report, one of the more interesting facts about the queen and prince philip were that she's considered within royal watchers to have very good legs, that she can get through these events that are long and
3:19 pm
he is just as spry. she's 86 or so. he's turning 91. let's wish them good health. in the meantime, she's got a late night set up for her. after the concert, she has additional duties with the lighting of the beacons. >> reporter: that's right. she's going to lightning the national beacon. there's more than 4,000 across the world to be lit, starting in tonga to here in the uk. it's one of the ways that ordinary members of the public can participate in the celebrations. i spoke to kids at the highest school in britain here who were so excited to be first to be chosen to light one of the beacons here in the uk. they really felt like they are participating in the jubilee celebrations. that's one of the reasons why it has such impact and people feel like they're really a part of the queen's celebrations. >> it's like the olympics and a royal wedding all rolled into one big party. a lot of fun. and you're lucky to get the assignment, no matter how far you are away from the concert. atika, thank you.

overseas markets never like it when we have a bad jobs report, right? and there's a wildfire right now that is burning bigger than the city of chicago. time to play "reporter roulette." we begin with alison kosik live at the new york stock exchange. asian markets falling because the reports that the united states has a stinker of a month, creating only 69,000 jobs in may. but we've been up since 2:00 in the morning and we've been watching the futures and been watching how things have changed. bring me up to date on how good or bad the day ended up being? >> reporter: it's not as bad as it could have been. stocks are falling, but it's more of a carrythrough. the dow dropping only 44 points right now. this after we found out that just 69,000 jobs were added to the workforce in may. it also had investors all around the globe feeling uneasy about the recovery. we watched asian markets plunge
3:25 pm
overnight. and then earlier in the day, another weak report, this time on u.s. manufacturing came in. that is contributing to today's losses. so after a strong january, february and march, guess what? the dow has now erased all of its gains for the year. we are right back where we started. remember dow 13,000? the dow's doing its best to cling on to dow 12,000 at this point. ashleigh? >> you had to say that. my poor 401(k) getting such a battering. here's the deal. i know the jobs number here was bad. but there's still a mess going on in china with production and there's still a mess with greek and the eurozone. is that as significant as our jobs issue? >> reporter: it is because you have to remember that we send a lot of our products over to europe and to china. and if they're having their own economic issues, which they are, they're not going to buy as much stuff from us. that in turn affects us. and we're seeing how the
3:26 pm
slowdown in europe is affecting us now. that's what you're seeing play out in the markets as well. and the jobs is just exacerbating the problem here. >> if only god had a big stimulus for us all. alison kosik, i hope you can get some sleep after the closing bell, my friend. >> reporter: you, too. >> thank you, alison. the largest wildfire in new mexico's history has burned 380 square miles. chad myers is in the cnn weather center with an update on this. the weather conditions, my guess is it's hot and dry and that's just a rotten combination. >> and windy. all three of those together, you really have a big problem. big fire here in parts of arizona, another one in new mexico i could see from the air as i flew back from vegas over the weekend and another one north of vegas by a couple of hundred miles. awe of this being engulfed in the winds we're seeing today. some of these winds blowing 30 and 40 miles per hour right now
3:27 pm
will pick up to 50 miles per hour. blowing from the east, the opposite direction of where this wind has been coming from for quite some time. that's some good news as the firefighters get out of the way of those back winds or backing winds. but also if you don't push the fire line ahead a little bit, that can actually slow the fire's progress and fight it from the other direction. it's a very difficult process when you have winds swirling in mountains and canyons as well. this is not going to be over anytime soon. this weather didn't getting better for days. >> one of the last times we talked -- don't even ask me when it was -- but there was an issue with a controlled burn that went really awry. are they talking about controlled burns when the weather is that bad and that hot and dry with those winds? >> no. and you don't really even start back fires when the winds swirl like this. we lost an airplane and two pilots over the weekend as well. in a little neptune p2v that was dropping fire retardant on an
3:28 pm
area in new mexico. when you have planes that crash into mountains, you know these men and women are trying so very hard. they need to get those planes right down to that fire line, right very close to the ground and then drop it. otherwise, everything evaporated before it gets to the ground. two pilots lost their lives trying to put this fire out. >> they're heroes without question. chad, thank you for that. up next, the fascination with this face. this is a trucker. this was published in a medical journal. this man spent 28 years driving his big rig on the road. see the left side of his face? that would be the side that is closest to his window. and how one side of his face has suffered from all that uv coming through that window. medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins us. when i first saw this, i thought it was a hoax. i hear the window was up.
3:29 pm
>> right. we think those windows have a little bit of shading to them, it will protect us from the sun. and it won't. those uva rays and those are the runs that damage skin like we see here, those uva rays come through. so after 28 years, it did damage to that one side of his face. you can see it looks so different from the other side of his face. >> granted, i downtown spend all of my time out on the open road. i don't wear sunscreen when i get into my car. is it getting to this? >> i don't think your face is going to turn into his face. >> good thing with this job, right? >> that would be a lot of makeup to cover that up. >> yeah, and lighting. >> that's right. but this is a great reminder that we should all be wearing sunscreen really all the time. when i wake up in the morning, i wash my face and put on a layer of sunscreen even if i'm just coming to work because i will be

room until they admit what they need to to get out of there. >> i'm reading about some of the things she says happened to her when she was being detained. she says for seven hours she was repeatedly threatened, told she had no right to an attorney. that ain't right in america. everybody has a fifth amendment right and miranda rights to an attorney. she was told she was browbeaten and asked to sign a document that literally renounced her citizenship. is this true? is she truly no longer an american citizen because of the document she signed? >> yeah, it's something that when we go to court, we're going to get a federal judge to issue an order saying that she is a united states citizen. but it's incredible somebody can have that right taken away at a port of entry with no right to an attorney and no opportunity to present any evidence or any evidence against her in this
3:49 pm
case other than just an officer saying, after i read all your rights and i treated you nice, now you're going to admit you were not born in the united states, which is not true in this case and it wasn't true ine united states which is not true in the in this case. but it continues to happen and it happens more often and as you say, it shouldn't happen in the united states. >> cia is reaching out to border and customs to give a comment about this. i also know that you, mr. diaz, you went to the texas health and human services to get a copy of her birth certificate, to show them, hey, look, she's american for crying out loud. i've got a statement from them here. the state has not released a copy of ms. vasquez's birth certificate because her file has been flagged for possible fraud. this restriction is placed on someone's record when the state has reason to believe that a
3:50 pm
texas birth certificate may have been fraudulent aobtained. that was the official statement that was given to us from the department of health and human services. you have a way to prove that she was born in the united states what you get that -- >> i'm going to ask a federal jj to review her case. but it is incredible that someone has to go through all these hassles to prove that she was born in the united states. they should stop doing that to people because of-o' -- she's got a twin brother, right? >> and the twin brother gave me the birth certificate. it was information that was
3:51 pm
obtained by ddp and they submitted it without stating all the facts, without saying to the department of health, we detained the lady for 24 hours, we did not allow her to see an attorney, we threatened her with incarceration all because of a statement that was not true. they deported her and they sent her back to mexico. >> i hope you stay in touch with us to keep us up to speed on how this case turns out and if you have to go through with the federal lawsuit. the customs and border protection, and they have given us a statement, due to the pending legal action, the customs border and protection is unable to comment on the specifics of this case, regarding the admissibility of travelers, customs border and
3:52 pm
protection is under the obligation to establish that citizenship is proper and correct. the official response, but that doesn't stop the federal suit, not in any way. and by the way, she's in matamoros, mexico, she just can't go back and forth like e she's always done to go shopping, et cetera. >> can you give me a bit of an idea of what you're doing? >> daniel clydeman is -- kill trifts around the world. the book is entitled "kill or capture" dan clydeman is going to join us in the next hour. guess what we're going to do in the 5:00 eastern hour.
