7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. bianna golodryga is with us. as you wake up in the west, we have breaking news on a missing woman in iowa. the search for 20-year-old mollie ttt tibbetts who disappe apparently has led to her body. >> last seen alive on july 18th. sources tell cbs news tibbetts has been found dead, but very few details are available at this time. adriana diaz has covered this story since it began and is talking with her sources in iowa. she's with us from chicago. a very tough morning for her family. >> very tough morning, indeed, norah. this is a heartbreaking end to this saga surrounding the missing person's case of mollie tibbetts. she disappeared over just over a month ago when she went on her daily jog in her hometown of brooklyn, iowa. this is a tiny town in a very rural area. the landscape is difficult. that's something that investigators told us was a real
7:04 am
challenge in their search for her. because they had to go through corn fields. they had to use drones to try to take a peek at this farmland that's very hard to get through. mollie was a light and every one we spoke to in her hometown and even beyond her hometown people were talking about her. they said that she would brighten anyone's day. that she had no enemy. she was a friend to everyone. and there were photos of her all around this town. brooklyn, iowa, was wallpapered with photos of mollie tibbetts because everyone was searching for her. this was a cause her community took on, the nation took on. this story has really captivated the country and the fact that we know now that she has been found. we know now that she's found dead is going to be heartbreaking for people across the country, in addition to her family. >> i know yoeekingheramily for they were holding out hope that this wouldn't be the outcome.
7:05 am
>> that's right. we spoke to her mother, her father. her father told us that he believed at the time that she went willingly with someone that perhaps she met online, that she and this person had left their hometown and that she and that person were then in over their heads that they had no way to return, especially now that -- then, when the story had become so huge. so he was really just begging her to come back, that it's okay, that, you know, that they love her no matter what. because he was holding out hope that she was alive. there were so many mysteries surrounding this story. investigators really weren't able to give much information on what they were finding. but there were no real updates about evidence that they found or anything like that. so it was so mysterious that her family believed she must have gone willingly because there were no signs of a struggle. she was staying at her boyfriend's house, dalton, she was dog sitting that night. there was no break-in. there were no signs she left under duress.
7:06 am
she was wearing her fit bit. she had her cell phone. they used that information to try to track her location. >> what about a suspect? >> we will find out from authorities i'm sure later today about a suspect, about who might be involved who they may or may not have in custody. but it's unclear right now at this point whether she was taken, whether she left and something happened to her, but we will be hearing from authorities later today. >> the police are expected to hold a news conference at 6:00 p.m. eastern time later tonight. obviously not the outcome anybody had been hoping for. our thoughts are with her family. adria adriana, thank you. there's been a dramatic new twist in the high-profile murder case in california. the man accused of murdering his family claims he killed his wife after she strangleled their daughters. prosecutors filed nine felony charges against christopher watts yesterday. those charges include five counts of first degree murder. omar villafranca is outside the
7:07 am
courthouse in greely, colorado with reaction to the defendant's story. omar, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. according to an arrest affidavit, christopher watts was having an affair with a co-worker. he admits he killed his wife, but says he did not kill his girls. >> i have two beautiful girls. that i'm truly blessed with every day. >> reporter: after initially denying involvement in his family's disappearance, christopher watts allegedly told investigators his pregnant wife shann shanann killed their two daughters. according to an unsealed arrest affidavit, watts claimed moments after he told her he wanted a separation, he be an serobserve strangling their daughter, while their older daughter was sprawled out on their bed in blue. he claims he then went into a rage and ultimately strangled
7:08 am
shanann to death. neighbor kelley trippy is furious watts claimed shanann killed her children. >> it is so wrong, it is so not true. that is the last thing she would have done. >> if somebody has her, just please bring her back. i need to see everybody. >> reporter: just days after watts went on tv pleading for his family's safe return, he allegedly told investigators where to find their bodies on a property owned by the company he worked for. >> my office filed formal charges against christopher lee watts fl watts. >> reporter: in addition to the five murder charges, watts was charged with one count of unawful termination of a pregnancy in the first degree. at any point did you consider the death penalty? >> way too early to have that conversation. >> reporter: shanann's father was emotional monday as he thanked everyone for their support and prayers. >> they're greatly appreciated.
7:09 am
and keep the prayers coming for our family. >> reporter: it's also worth noting that watts' attorney was granted a request to get dna samples from the necks of the girls. he's expected to be in court behind me today to finally face his charges. we reached out to his public defender for comment but did not hear back. >> omar, thank you. microsoft says russian hackers are now targeting republican-leaning political groups that have criticized russia and president trump. the tech giant reported overnight it has uncovered fake websites created to infiltrate conservative think tanks and u.s. senators. the hacking attempts are similar to others from the 2016 election where political officials were lured into exposing passwords and personal information. microsoft has launched a new initiative to provide cybersecurity to political groups that are being targeted. it's unclear what the hackers were trying to accomplish. but this morning, the russian government denied the
7:10 am
allegations. >> white house counsel don mcgahn reportedly does not believe his testimony. the special counsel robert mueller implicated trump in any illegal wrongdoing. saying he's, quote, worried about falling into a perjury trap if he talks to mueller. >> reporter: also in that interview with reuters, the president said that the ongoing special counsel investigation, quote, played right into the russian's hands. also here in washington, republicans again expressed their concern about the president's unrelenting attacks on special counsel robert mueller. have you briefed the white house on everything you told the special counsel? >> reporter: white house counsel don mcgahn dodged questions about his role. president trump called the probe a, quote, national disgrace. mr. trump made this claim about the special counsel's investigation. i can go in and i could do whatever. i could run it if i wanted, the president told reuters.
7:11 am
but i decided to stay out. the president's suggestion he could run an inquiry into his own conduct raised more questions about his understanding of obstruction of justice. an area of interest to mueller. mr. trump also said he was reluctant to give an interview to mueller because it could be potentially a perjury trap. expressing fears investigators could compare his version of the firing of jim comey against the notes and recollections against the former director. he's best friends with mueller so mueller might say, well, i believe comey. even if i'm telling the truth, that makes me a liar. that's no good. as he has before, arizona republican jeff flake said mr. trump was out of line. >> this is unseamly frankly to go after, you know, a career officer over at justice, and to he's gone after him. >> reporter: the president also told reuters he might lift sanctions on russia if there's
7:12 am
cooperation from moscow on syria and ukraine. both seem highly unlikely.ressc along with any sanctions. one of last known nazi crime suspects in the u.s. was deported to germany overnight. he immigrated to new york city after world war ii. he told the justice department many years later he lied about serving as a guard in a concentration camp to get into the u.s. he denied any wartime activity. he stayed because no other country was willing to admit him. cbs news has learned u.s. officials believe al qaeda's chief bombmaker was killed. officials are confident ibrahim al asiri was killed last year in an american drone strike in yemen. according to reports, he was hit with his associates in the governant of marib. al asiri was involved in a
7:13 am
series of attacks including the failed underwear bomber attack in 2009. he was believed to be behind recent efforts to hide bombs within laptops and mobile devices. that prompted tsa bans for those devices on some flights. the vatican announced pope francis will meet priest sectx n abuse victims during a weekend visit to ireland. he apologized for allegationings that disgraced cardinal theo dotheodor mccarrick. tells how he repeatedly complained to senior church officials about the retired archbishop of washington. nikki battiste is covering the scandal. >> reporter: cardinal o'malley's admission is more startling because he is perhaps the pope's most trusted adviser on stopping sex abuse. o'malley said he had no idea someone had complained about mccarrick and that he never saw that letter. >> i had the impression that
7:14 am
virtually everybody knew about it. >> reporter: father ramsey says he first heard about cardinal mccarrick's disturbing behavior as early as 1986. >> archbishop mccarrick was inviting seminarians to his beach house. there were five beds and there were six people. archbishop mccarrick arranged it in such a way that somebody would join him in his bed. >> reporter: ramsey, now a pastor in new york city, wrote a letter in june 2015 to cardinal sean o'malley who had just been appointed by pope francis to lead a commission to protect children from sex abuse. ramsey wrote, some of these stories were not presented to me as mere rumors but were told to me by persons directlyinvolved. >> the response i got was from his secretary. under our jurisd. >> reporter: cardinal o'malley said that was a mistake. in retrospect, he said, i should have seen that letter, precisely because it made assertions about
7:15 am
the behavior of an archbishop in the church. o'malley told norah o'donnell in 2014 the church took sex abuse complaints seriously. >> certainly the holy father is very, very aware of that and very committed to zero tolerance and responding in a proper way. >> reporter: yesterday, the pope, once again, apologized to survivors. the heart-wrenching pain of these victims, which cries out to heaven, was long ignored, he said. but their outside wcry was more powerful than all the measures meant to silence it. >> pope francis says greater accountability is needed urgently, not only for those who committed these crimes but also for those who covered them up, which in many cases means ops. >> reporter: fathese told us he broughtoncern about cardinal mccarrick to vatica a2000,5years before heto o'malley.icrespondeenoe.
7:16 am
te, ask p when he was bishop of pittsburgh. >> constant, every day, new shocking allegations. we know the pope will be meeting with some of these victims this weekend in ireland. >> many questions about what the church is going to do. rather than just voice outrage and concern about it, what steps they'll take. >> survivors want concrete steps laid out. >> this is the latest chapter. they wanted concrete steps long before too and they weren't taken. >> nikki, thank you. an alligator dragged and killed a woman after she tried to rescue her dog from the reptile at a private south carolina resort. 45-year-old cassandra cline was walking at her vacation home when the deadly attack happened.
7:17 am
mark strassmann. >> reporter: good morning. alligator attacks here in south carolina are rare. 20 attacks since 1976. frightening, but generally not fatal. but this most recent attack is the second deadly one in the last two years. >> rare occurrence. sad situation. >> reporter: investigators say 45-year-old cassandra cline was taking her dog for a routine morning walk when the alligator a tacked. when they got to this lagoon, authorities say a nine-foot alligator came out and lunged for the dog. cline tried to protect her pet and the alligator attacked her instead. >> it appears the alligator grabbed the leash instead of the dog and it was some sort of a basic tug-of-war with her trying to get the dog back via the leash. and in turn the alligator drug her and the dog into the water. >> reporter: cline's body was recovered in the lagoon. the dog was not harmed. people inside this gated resort community were stunned by the
7:18 am
attack. >> this is just going to be heartbreaking for everybody. >> reporter: cline was an elementary school teacher in upstate new york. she and her husband did not have any children. and reportedly split their time between new york and south carolina. in a statement, cline's sister called her a special and beautiful person, adding, we are all heart broken. and not sure how to get through this. nationwide, deadly alligator attacks are statistically rare. about two months ago in south florida, a 47-year-old woman was killed bile wa eed while walkin a nature preserve. her rear mamains were found insn alligator. 2-year-old boy was killed when he was attacked by an alligator near a lake in a disney resort property. >> there's water here. there's going to be an alligator in it. >> reporter: neighbors say this resort has had to remove alligators in the past. wildlife officials were able to find the al gait they're it all

raindu thiing. a report in his office warns that consumers might not get the protection they think they've paid for. consumers spent nearly $3 billion on travel insurance in 2016. it's more than doubled since 2006. kris van cleave is at reagan national airport outside washington with the warnings about the fine print. kris, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. senator markey is sending these letters to two insurers today, this as new research from aaa finds as many as 40% of americans are likely to buy travel insurance for an international trip. the number one reason is cancellation protection. now, travel insurance can cover the cost of a trip if you're suddenly too sick to fly, if you lose your job, if you get injured
7:43 am
>> i just had a feeling that this time we'd need it and it wasn't that expensive. >> you booked the trip. you got this great plan. what happens? >> so about a month after we booked the trip, i find out that i'm pregnant with my daughter. and she's due october 21st. and our flight to come back from europe was october 19th, so naturally, you can't fly when you're that pregnant. >> the insurance covered illness but not pregnancy. her claim was denied. >> a review by senator ed mark y markey's office said all booking web sites sell travel insurance and typically require yes or no before being allowed to book a trip and the report found what it calls questionable travel insurance marketing practices for policies that offer minimal coverage and often erect hurdles
7:44 am
to the payment of claims. >> consumers are being tipped upside down, money shaken out of their pockets and split between the airlines and the insurance companies and it's just plain wrong. >> just two companies underwrite all those policies. in a statement, the u.s. travel insurance association said the industry was not contacted by senator markey adding, travel insurance is a valuable product that protects consumer's financial investment. the group recommends travelers fully understand the coverage options they're purchasing to make sure it fits their needs. it's voluntary. the better business bureau said complaints on the rise to exceed 700 this year, more than double the 342 in 2015. >> you don't even know what you're getting sometimes. >> chris elliot runs a site that tracks the travel industry. >> the solution is better disclosure by the travel insurance companies, by the airlines and online travel agencies who are selling these
7:45 am
products, and the solution ultimately is a more informed consumer. by which, i mean, people actually reading the fine print. >> for laura and matt, they refunded the taxes on the cancelled trip but out more than $700. >> when you come up to that travel insurance box, what do you do? >> ignore it. >> click no. >> no thank you. i'll be out the money anyway. >> the report found that often similarly priced travel insurance plans not offered by the airlines or those third party booking sites provided better coverage, we reached out to norwegian, the airline that laura was flying and the airline believes its cancellation and trip protection policies are clear and were properly followed in this case but going to offer a one-time courtesy refund to laura for the remainder of her airfare. >> that's good news for laura. we've been talking about thisa t you kn lker,odeance mp

8:34 am
survey questions about women's roles in society. they found where a woman is born impacts how much she works and earns. sexist attitudes are most prevalent in the southeast and least prevalent on the west coast and in new england. women from states where sexism is more widespread also tend to get married and have children at a younger age than women in less sexist states. cbs news contributor jodi kantor is an investigative reporter for "the new york times" and has extensively covered sexism and the me too movement. jodi, good morning. >> good morning. >> even the researchers involved said they were surprised by the findings. >> well, i think the first piece of news is that you can even draw a map of sexism in the united states. the rrchers were prettyconfidt west coast is less sexist. they even did state-by-state comparisons. they said ohio is better and indiana is worse. >> i thought what was also interesting, it was not only how you are as a woman treated by others but how you internalize your self-attitudes about the role of women in the workplace

and society. >> the headline from the study is basically that sexism is in the water where you're born, it's in your blood. obviously, where you're born is not something you can control, so this is something you inherit that may determine part of the shape of your life, and that it's very hard to permanently overcome, even if, say, you grow up someplace more rural, supposedly more sexist, according to the study, and then you move to new york city. you can't totally shake the effects, the researchers say. >> what are those correlations between the status of where you're growing up, and does race play a role? >> they actually only focused on white women, because they essentially wanted to -- they knew that the effect of racism was so powerful that they wanted to put it aside and focus on gender in this particular survey. but what they're really saying is that the effects are quite deep and wide-ranging, everything from when you marry to when you go to work, how much you work, whether you stay in the workplace, and how much money you earn. >> well, the solution for women,

of sexual abuse, but because she was such a leading voice of the me too movement, and she went out there and said these things, even knowing there was this very disturbing settlement against her. so, the "times" reported this on sunday night and it's caused a huge stir, as you know. the thing that i think is important for context, though, is that argento is one woman in what's become a huge movement. and even -- she didn't come forward to us about harvey weinstein -- >> she was -- >> "the new yorker." but megan toomey and i spoke to so many women who had the same story about weinstein. we corroborated these stories very thoroughly. so, weinstein and their team, their strategy is really to focus on argento now, right? they're going to say, she's a hypocrite. this proves that the charges against weinstein are really exaggerated. but she's just one voice of very, very many. >> how do you hold that defense, though, when on the other hand, you say i understand that my behavior was bad? how can you say both those
8:39 am
things if you're harvey weinstein? i understand my behavior is bad, but this source is a bad source, so i shouldn't be held accountable? >> harvey weinstein is fighting two battles now. he's fighting to get the court -- he wants to beat the criminal charges, right? he doesn't want to go to jail. he doesn't want to be convicted of sexual abuse. he's also fighting to redeem his reputation, and those two things are linked. so, what i'm going to tell you to look out for in the next few months is him waging that war on both fronts. and so, he wants to beat the charges, but he also wants to change the way we think about this. >> the me too movement far from over. jodi kantor, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. using dna websites to find your relatives can unleash powerful emotions. >> i started driving, and i felt joy. i was like, this is such a great gift at a perfect time. >> ahead and only on "cbs this morning," how one man
