ride them appropriately and don't come near me. trace gallagher, you're amazing. i love having you in new york. thanks for joining us. i dana perino. here's shep. >> shepard: it's 3:00 on the east coast, 1:00 p.m. in utah where cops searched a home in the hunt for this missing college student. police now confirm they're investigating whether she had a secret life with older men online. plus, the mystery mattress that could help cops crack the case. president trump asking if he can delay the census because of a ruling by the supreme court. it's one of two major decisions that could affect your voice in congress. we'll talk to a 9-11 responder about a possible break through for the sick and dying heros of the attack. an emotional meeting in which responders gave the top republicans in congress the badge of a former nypd detective
12:01 pm
that you may know named luis alvarez. >> he got his badge now. if he strays from his commitment, then we'll go back in attack mode. >> john will join us live as reporting begins now. our reporting begins with fast-moving developments in the disappearance of a college student in utah. indications now that she may have been leading a double life. searching online for sugar daddies and that something bad may have happened inside an area house. for now, cops are not being specific. police in salt lake city do say that they have a person of interest after they searched a man's home miles from where 23-year-old mackenzie lueck was last seen getting into somebody's car at a park in the middle of the night.
12:02 pm
detectives were at that house through the night. they towed away a car and brought shovels and dogs into the back yard where the neighbors say they saw and smelled the homeowner burning something days ago. >> just been waking up to burning fire smell. jump up. looking around. there's no fire in the house so it's outside. >> the smell was strong. >> strong enough to wake me up. >> i heard from a neighbor that he was burning in his back yard. i believe that neighbor informed him that you cannot burn in a residential neighborhood. it was causing quite a smell. a smoky mess, which disturbed the neighbors. >> shepard: here's a map of where everything has happened. more than a week ago, a lyft driver told police that he picked lueck at the airport and by her instructions brought her to a park outside of town around 3:00 a.m. where she got into somebody else's car. she hasn't been seen or heard
12:03 pm
from since. yesterday police descended on the house which is less than six miles from that park. now investigators are looking for a mattress and box spring that somebody at the home gave away last week. police are asking whoever picked those items up to call them. the assistant police chief confirmed the detectives are looking into the report that lueck may have been living that double life and that she was in fact dating a number of older men. claudia cowan has been following the story all week reporting live on the ground in salt lake city. claudia? >> shepard, police have not identified this person of interest and say they will only release a name when and if they make an arrest. we learned that a brand new adjustable massage bed was delivered to the home. this coming days after the owner gave away a mattress, selling it online, giving it away. this picture came to police as a
12:04 pm
tip. now they want to get ahold of this mattress, get it to a crime lab and run it through tests. what is unclear, whether the homeowner is the same person that mackenzie texted when she arrived at the salt lake city airport early in the morning june 17 or the same person she met with a short time later after taking the ride share to a suburban park. police have served multiple search warrants. neighbors say the owner lived upstairs and rented out a couple rooms in the basement through air b&b. it's unclear in the basement was rented out when mackenzie disappeared. neighbors say they saw people coming and going all the time. they said the homeowner would burn things in his back yard and complained to him about it. they described him as stubborn and anti-social. police say he has spoke to detectives, but the extent of his cooperation is a little unclear. he remains free. no arrests have been made.
12:05 pm
his wherables are unknown to us. it appears nobody was home to sign for the brand new adjustable massage bed. >> shepard: authorities are not naming him but they have been speaking to him but not much from the family, claudia. >> that's right, shepard. mackenzie's family is in southern california. they have not spoken publicly. the chief, mike brown, has been in constant contact with them. this morning he shared a gut wrenching conversation with mackenzie's dad, greg. >> i can feel the heart ache and the pain and the suffering in his voice as we spoke. my commitment to greg is that we could do everything within our power, the salt lake city police department to bring mackenzie home. >> this remains a missing persons case. police describing it as fluid and dynamic.
12:06 pm
they're still asking the public to call this dedicated tip line set up and especially if they have any information about the mattress. >> shepard: thanks, claudia. president trump is asking to delay the census in the wake of one of two supreme court rulings. both decisions have implications for american democracy beyond next year's election. first the supreme court refusing to put limits on how lawmakers can draw up congressional districts for their own party's political gain. it's a practice called gerrymandering. for example, here is what the congressional districts looked like in the state of ohio. back in may a three-judge panel determined that the republicans manipulated the state's districts boundaries to help them win elections. but today's supreme court decision effectively reverses that ruling. the court saying political matters like this should be handled not by the court but the states. similar in north carolina. three-judge panel said no. after 2016, republicans won 53%
12:07 pm
of the popular vote in north carolina. but representation they got 77%. ten of the state's 13 house seats. gerrymandering. in dissent, justin kagan read from the bench for the first time ever this court refuses to remedy a constitutional violation because it thinks the task beyond judicial capabilities. that ruling a win for republicans. the second decision is a settle-back for the white house. one the president called this afternoon totally ridiculous. the ruling deals with the 2020 census. the supreme court blocking for now the trump administration's proposal to -- as part of the census to ask whether the respondent is a citizen. john roberts said the rationale was not adequate. he said the evidence does not tell the story that matched the
12:08 pm
explanation. officials with the census bureau said if they had a citizenship question, millions and millions of immigrants will not fill out the census form. immigrant advocacy organizations and some democrats say if people -- if they're asked if they're american citizens, the reason for that is it's intended to discourage minorities for participating in elections and underrepresented. there's evidence that shows that was the goal. because the evidence is newly discovered since the lower court ruling, the scotus decision to sent it back to the lower court was unanimous, 9-0. unless the president gets his census delay, the question will not be asked. david spunt reporting live from washington. david? >> shepard, it's quite possible that that census case could come back to the supreme court. certainly is a set-back for the trump administration, but doesn't mean that it is over yet. specifically on this census case for months the president and his team including commerce
12:09 pm
secretary wilbur ross have tried to get this question on the 2020 census. they say the forms will be printed out at some point the next few weeks. that's why they felt there was a rush to get this done. the justices said they didn't feel that the trump administration made the correct argument to get that citizenship question on the census. i want to read though to you that immigration groups were out here, they were proud, they were excited about this ruling even though it's not set in stone. take a listen to one of the groups out here earlier this morning at the court. >> this decision to add the citizenship question was not based on protecting minority voters. it was based on suppressing their voice. >> you mentioned the president not happy about it. he's tweeting from japan. want to read this to you. seems ridiculous that our government and country cannot ask a basic question of citizenship in an expensive and detailed census for 2020. i asked the lawyers if they can delay the census until the u.s.
12:10 pm
supreme court is given additional information from which they can make a final and deso iive -- decisive question. the last time that a citizenship question such as this went out to all u.s. households was 1950. something to point out to you. it was sent out earlier today about the constitution, what it says about the census. it does not mention the word "census." it says she shall be made every subsequent term, shep. >> shepard: it also says every person, not every citizen, right? >> correct. every person, not every citizen. >> shepard: in addition, there was a ruling on gerrymandering. >> yes, that 5-4 is saying that the supreme court is not going to get involved in the gerrymandering business. a lot of supreme court watchers were waiting to see if this would happen. the supreme court is what we
12:11 pm
like to say here punted it back to the lower courts and never taken a firm stance on partisan gerrymandering. they lived up to the reputation sending it back to the lower courts. justice kagan very upset and using the word tragic from the bench. >> shepard: david spunt live at the court. a man named jerry curin died in the dominican republic earlier this year. at first his death didn't get much attention and then more americans started dying. coming up, we'll speak with his daughter that says she wants to tell everybody what happened to her dad. that is coming up as our reporting continues on this thursday afternoon. ♪ limu emu & doug mmm, exactly! liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. nice! but uh, what's up with your partner? oh! we just spend all day telling everyone how we customize car insurance because no two people are alike, so... limu gets a little confused when he sees

12:17 pm
about this one, shepard. we don't want to make too much of it. we don't know if these deaths are related or not. but fact is, with the authorities saying nothing to see here and people dying, a lot of people are asking questions and a lot of people are saying i'm not going to the dominican republic. look at the numbers, the bookings in june, down 74%. it's not that people are not going on vacation. they're choosing to go elsewhere in the caribbean. places like the bahamas, aruba, jamaica where bookings are up big-time and con -- cancellations. they're up about 50%. so it's having a major impact, shep. >> shepard: jeff flock, thanks from chicago. one of the americans that died in the d.r. is jerry curin, a retired police officer. his daughter says he got sick after dinner and some drinks and
12:18 pm
ended up in a hospital. he never made it out. she says that at one point the hospital demanded $50,000 to save her father. jerry's daughter, kelly brown, joins us now. thanks for being here. i'm so sorry. >> thank you. >> shepard: do you know what happened? >> i do not know what happened. what i do know is that my father traveled to the dominican republic and ate and drank something there, became sick. wound up at the hospital where he eventually died. >> shepard: then they asked for $50,000 to save him? give us the details, if you can. >> so what happened is, when they arrived at the hospital, they actually made my mother sign a promissory note for $80 u.s. american dollars. at which point they asked her to put $10,000 down on a credit card for immediate services. >> shepard: a shakedown. >> she did. of sorts.
12:19 pm
she did. she put $10,000 on her credit card. by 10:45 that morning, i received a phone call from a family friend that said they are going to get him ready for surgery but they would need $50,000. what did i want to do. i asked them questions. during the conversation, the amount went down to $40,000, which time i got my bank on the phone. we were negotiating how to get the funds to the dominican republic so that my father could have surgery. >> shepard: was there a surgery? >> there was a surgery. he died following the surgery. >> shepard: do you have any kind of resolution from the d.r.? do you have toxicology, do you have anything? >> we know there was an autopsy performed because my father -- took us two weeks to repatriate
12:20 pm
him back to the united states. part of the process requires an autopsy. we don't know if there was a toxicology report done. we know there was an autopsy but we don't have that information. >> shepard: they won't give it to you? i believe our satellite connection has frozen. my understanding of this case, i was going to ask her to confirm it, my understanding is they can't get anything out of authorities in the dominican republic. this has been part of the pattern. something happens, people become ill, they're not able to get details on exactly what went down. once there's medical procedures done, can't get details on that. in the end, if someone dies, you can't get results of an autopsy or toxicology report or find out whatever it was that happened to your loved one. in some cases, there's an extreme delay in getting the remains returned and at least one of the victim's families or one of the deceased families, i don't know that they're victims,
12:21 pm
one of the deceased families says we could -- they tried to urge us to have the body cremated so that we would never know what happened. dominican authorities to be fair, say these cases are not linked. but beware of your eyes and ears as often they tell the truths. coming up, we're getting an update on the little girl cracked in the skull by a foul ball last month. and world leaders set to meet in japan hours from now. it comes as president trump tries to hash out a trade deal with china. and need cash? you should know about the newday va home loan for veterans it lets you borrow up to 100 percent of your home's value. the newday va loan lets you refinance your mortgages, consolidate your credit card debt, put cash in the bank, and lower your payments over $600 a month. call today. and get the financial peace of mind every veteran deserves.

12:28 pm
i was told by senior administration officials that is not happening. another thing that the administration is shooting down is this idea that the president is going to put an indefinite hold on possible new sanctions against china. i'm fold that they could emerge a moratorium on new tariffs, against china as the meetings continue should they continue. larry kudlow, the chief economic adviser talked about this earlier on fox. listen here. >> there's no preconditions. i don't know where that came from. we're believe it's possible that if the meeting goes well the chinese will come back to the negotiating table and pick up where we left off in may where we completed roughly 90% of what could be a good agreement. >> the markets are looking forward to that they're up today. we don't know with those talks if they bear fruit or not. could be premature on the stock
12:29 pm
marked's part. trade is a big issue. the other is iran. the french president, emmanuel macron told reuters that he is going to bring up the subject of iran with the president during some of the plenary meetings and encourage the president to ease the sanctions against iran in order to bring them to the table. i don't know how he would react to that he figures he can squeeze them like north korea to bring them to the table. >> shepard: john roberts, reporting live. secretary kudlow mentioned a report, he said he didn't know where it came from. the "wall street journal" stand by its reporting. the fox news parent company and "wall street journal" share common ownership and the story

it's the rest of the story that is insane. i've always been amazed by what's next. and still going for my best, even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin... i want that too. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both.
12:43 pm
what's next? reeling in a nice one. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden sign of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.
