7:04 am
exhaustive 48-day manhunt for the gun enthusiast. police found the 31-year-old's abandoned suv, assault rifle, pipe bomb, soiled diapers and detailed writings describing the murder of corporal dixon. all frustrating near misses until police finally got their man. >> let me assure you from everybody here, justice will be served. >> reporter: and authorities say that justice will include seeking the death penalty. meantime, you can imagine the relief -- not just for authority whose worried that this would end in a gun battle but also for this community, waking up relieved for the first time in weeks. the halloween trick-or-treating they had canceled because of the manhunt is back on for tonight, matt and hoda. >> kristen dahlgren, thank you very much. we are learning more this morning about a tragic plane crash at wichita's mid continental airport. at least four people died when a small plane slammed into a
7:05 am
training building. ron mott is there with that story. good morning. >> reporter: hoda, good morning to you. three of the people who died were in a flight simulator in this building you see behind me. the fourth person was the pilot. investigators have arrived to begin the process of figuring out exactly what went wrong. the twin engine turbo prop slammed into the building shortly after takeoff, sparking a raging fire that sent black clouds of smoke high in the air. inside, pilots practicing in flight simulators. identified as a friend by 53-year-old mark goldstein tried turning back to the runway when an engine failed. >> he didn't have enough altitude to do much of anything. the time he applied the power to the time he hit the building was less than 30 seconds. >> reporter: the popular prop he was flying, leaving him the only one aboard struggling to maintain control. he called the tower soon after getting airborne. >> just declared an emergency. we just lost an engine. >> reporter: few seconds of
7:06 am
silence, then this. >> what's on fire? >> we just lost an aircraft. >> reporter: this woman says she saw something go down but was uncertain exactly what. >> it was windy and i heard a big, loud noise but i didn't know what it was and then i could see smoke coming up from around the side of the building. >> reporter: hours after the crash, smoke still billowed from the building, which officials say will be inspected before the wreckage and bodies can be safely removed. >> until such time we can render the building safe, we're going to take all the precautions necessary to ensure none of our firefighters are hurt. >> reporter: now, officials say they'll make every effort to try to recover those bodies today, but because the building is so unstable, that process could take several days. still no word on the identities of the three people who died inside. hoda, matt, back to you. >> ron mott, thank you very much. standoff in maine between officials and that nurse who is fighting that voluntary

7:08 am
but she's not acting as smart as she probably should. >> reporter: so far, maine seems to have backed down from plans to seek a court order to keep hickox and others who have had contact with ebola patients in the past 21 days out of public places. >> i am not symptomatic. there's no way i could give someone ebola. >> reporter: so far, hickox has complied with the state's request, opting for a pizza delivery after this national name drop. >> i would love to be able to getg to the moose shack and get a piece of pizza. >> we've received phone calls, is she here? people wanting to come have lunch but she's not coming because possibly she may be here. >> reporter: 3,000 have signed an online petition to revoke her nurtur nursing license if she doesn't stay inside. what a brat, one tweeted.
7:09 am
serious case of mebola. kaci hickox swears a bike helmet to protect herself, could care less about americans. the burden is on maine to justify a strict quarantine. >> you can do it if you can demonstrate that they're going to harm the public. the state has to show that. they haven't offered any evidence to that effect. all they've said is an abundance of caution. liberty is more than that in america. >> reporter: kaci's boyfriend came out and said they chose that bike route deliberately. they didn't ride into town or go among a lot of people. they said we don't want to get anybody sick and we don't believe we can get anyone sick. matt and hoda? >> stephanie gosk, thank you very much. here with a new investigation into the killing of osama bin laden, huh? >> that's right. and member of s.e.a.l. team 6 who wrote the best-selling book now under criminal investigation. at question is whether or not he

warming trend for tuesday. wednesday afternoon, up to 70. have a great day. >> and that's your latest weather. >> al, thanks so much. only days before the mid term elections, it's all about the mood of the voters and whether change will again come to washington. chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press" is wrapping up his "meet the voters" road trip. his last stop, metaire, louisiana. good morning, chuck. >> reporter: good morning, hoda. >> president's numbers are low, congress' numbers are low. do you think people are going to want to go out to the polls, are they going to be holding their nose, picking the lesser of two evils? what are we going to see? >> the voters i met definitely feels like a hold your nose election. you get the sense, in talking to voters, they would like to punish the president's party without rewarding the republicans. in many cases they're sitting on their hands. not sure what to do. they do plan on voting. they're spending millions of
7:15 am
doll dollars in these races, they are going to show up to the poll. they're probably leaning against the president but they're not happy about it. >> the republicans need to take six seats to take control of the senate. >> reporter: right. >> where do you see the most competitive spots? >> reporter: there are three states, iowa, colorado and kansas, i would have a good idea who would control the senate. republicans start with three in the bag already. among those three, if one party wins two of those three races, they're going to control the senate. and right now i think all three of them are within two points. >> let's talk ebola for a second. it's sort of emerged as an issue. people are upset about how the federal government has handled this. a couple of states it's very important, new jersey and maine. how big of an issue do you think ebola is going to be for voters? >> reporter: well, it's interesting. in traveling the country and the states i was in, whether it was the midwest or the south, ebola wasn't a huge issue in the senate races, wasn't a huge
7:16 am
issue for these voters, but in these particular states, i would peg illinois, georgia. you brought up maine. highly contested gubernatorial cases. you have major airports there or, of course, the one nurse that's in maine. and so it could play, but voters aren't exactly holding one party against the other on this. so while it's an issue, i don't know if it sways an undecided voter, hoda. >> are you hopping on that bus and coming home now? is it over? >> reporter: of course. well, it's sort of over. i'm going to be back here in louisiana in december. you guys got crazy rules down here, hoda. >> that's actually very true. for a complete wrap-up of the races, be sure to "meet the press" this sunday. nbc, of course, will have special live coverage as the results roll in tuesday night at 10:00, 9:00 central time. nba superstar lebron james could probably win an election
7:17 am
in cleveland right now. playing his first game back with his old team, the cavaliers. the celebration was over the top. the results probably not what king james or the fans had hoped for. national correspondent craig melvin is in cleveland this morning. hi, craig. >> reporter: matt, good morning. check this out. the entire front page of this city's major newspaper devoted to ohio's favorite son. keep in mind, last year, they were burning this guy in effigy. as you mentioned there, thursday night, fans flooded the streets, celebrating the triumphant return of their prodigal son. >> number 23, lebron james! >> call it a comeback. he had been here for years, now back with a vengeance. james for three. they lost their first home game but that did not spoil the mood.
7:18 am
cleveland is all about looking forward to the future. >> we had one bad moment and it overshadowed a lot of great times. >> reporter: that one bad moment? james' high profile departure to the miami heat, winning two championships there. over the summer, cavalier's owner called his departure a cowardly betrayal, buried the hatchet as lebron re-signed with the cavaliers sbchlt just like that, all was forgiven. a giant banner that was torn down when he left in 2010 replaced with a new one. jerseys that were torched now replaced and seen all over town, as fans prepare for a new age of lebron. >> he means the world to us. >> do you remember what -- >> we all hated him months ago. >> reporter: that's all in the past as seen in a new nike ad
7:19 am
gone viral. >> one, two, three. four, five, six. >> reporter: with one game in the books it remains to be seen if the second come something all it's cracked up to be. ask cavalier fans and there's little doubt. >> we're excited for a championship. >> reporter: this year? >> hopefully. >> reporter: 1964, that's the last time this city enjoyed a major sports championship, guys. but they are -- as desperate as they are optimistic, season tickets for the cavaliers sold out in eight hours this time around. they're saying lebron's return to the franchise will mean about $215 million in additional revenue. >> wow! >> all right. >> wowza. >> the next guy killed by the bulls in their home opener and then went to cleveland and beat the cavaliers. >> that's right. tamron is in for carson this morning. you have some fall lsout about one of the most talked about moments in the world series. nothing to do with baseball, though. >> nothing to do with baseball.
7:20 am
the giants won the world series wednesday. there was a lot of buzz online during the game but it was a moment that actually happened after the game. not a controversy but a conversation. regional chevy manager's name rick willoughby, presenting a new truck to the mvp madison m bumgarner when his nerves got the best of him. take a look. >> at chevrolet, we have -- we have have also been proud of the latest and greatest technology in our truck lineup, which is the all-new 2015 chevy colorado. it combines class winning, leading technology and stuff. >> well, okay. i thought he was adorable but technology and stuff, guys, started trending. this is chris bailey.

what's making headline this is morning. accused cop killer eric frein is being arraigned this morning. he was taken into custody near an abandoned airplane hangar last night after a nearly seven-week manhunt. crews are working to recover the victims of a tragic plane accident in kansas. a small plane lost power and slammed into a building at an airport in wichita, killing the pilot and at least three people inside. the national guard is now being deployed to an historic village in hawaii to help deal with that slow-moving lava flow. 83 troops will provide security and man roadblocks as the natural disaster advances. meanwhile we'll be talking with nik wallenda, as the dare devil is preparing for this weekend's risky tightrope walk high above the windy city of chicago. did we mention he will do part of the walk blindfolded? >> you and willie will be there. >> we'll be more nervous than he is. he looks pretty calm.
7:32 am
a woman's encounter while walking through new york city is provoking strong reaction. this morning, the women behind it are speaking out. tamron? >> yes, hoda, when does a compliment turn into a cat call? that's one of the many questions about that video now being debated across social media. when the video of a hidden camera experiment capturing the sights and sounds of a woman's experience walking the streets of new york city is posted online, it became a social media phenomenon, with more than 20 million views since it debuted tuesday. the group behind the video wants to raise awareness of street harassment. >> my dream of all dreams is that street harassers watch this enemas and think, god, i had no idea the impact this had on women as they walk down the street. >> reporter: it did not provoke that reaction for some. >> i do not see harassment there, none, zero. >> we think about these things differently. >> reporter: when actress
7:33 am
shoshanna roberts heard about the casting call, she jumped at the chance to show what a typical day is like for her. >> i'm telling my story so someone can understand and walk in my shoes for two minutes. >> reporter: she says she received a lot of positive feedback from the video, she has also received threats of rape and violence, some so extreme, she's taking them to the police. a recent report by an advocacy group found more than half of all women have experienced verbal harassment on the street. and two-thirds of the harassed women were concerned it would escalate into something worse. >> it can make them fearful. they never know what the intention is behind men who may be saying things to them. are they going to escalate their attention, grab them, assault them? everybody has had a story that's happened to them or someone they know. wives, sisters, nieces, your aunts, your daughters.
7:34 am
>> so, another criticism of the video concerns the ethnicity of the harassers shown in the clips, with some calling all of the white people saying they were all edited out. they she walked in neighborhoods all over manhattan and experienced 100 instances of harassment but only the most egregious ones. and the video grapher said he had some audio problem soes a lot of men were not heard that he would have used and many of those, he said, were white. >> do you believe there's a thin line or broad line between a compliment and cat call? >> i think it's tonal. >> i think it's how you feel. when someone says, hey, pretty, i say hi. i don't get defensive but it's -- >> depends on tone. if they're leering, following you. >> that's scary. >> men were following her. >> thanks, tamron. let's get a check of the weather from mr. roker. >> announcer: "today's" sunday

15-degree incline. and to follow that up, a second walk, blindfolded. sunday, all eyes will be on nik wallenda's latest stunt, even if he can't say the same. and, nik wallenda joins us live. nik, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i know you spent a lot of time last night with the construction crew and the engineers, watching the wires get set up. now that you've seen what it looks like, does it make you more or less nervous? >> no. you know what? it makes me excited more than anything. this is another dream of mine. i love the city of chicago and i'm excited to be here. >> i love that nik is never nervous. nik, everybody will be keeping their eyes on the weather forecast, calling for 40 degrees or so there in the windy city, of course, the winds coming from the north. how is the forecast looking for you? is there any reason at this point to be concerned sunday night? >> not right now. everything looks great. of course, today we've got a storm blowing through. this would be very intimidating if i let it take control of my
7:44 am
mind. i know that weather changes within minutes often around here. there's no sense in focusing on today. i'm focusing on sunday and the weather looks very promising. >> real quickly, nik, what gets in your head more, the 15% incline of the first part of the walk or the blindfold on the second? >> that's a tough one. both of them are extremely huge challenge. i would say the blindfold, taking away that most important sense of a wire walker, vision and focus is very, very challenging. >> well, we are going to be watching. me, from the comfort of my home, but natalie will be there, broadcasting this live. are you nervous? >> along with willie geist and jim cantore from the weather channel. i think we are always more nervous than nik is. you are the picture of confidence and he always keeps his head about him. after the grand canyon, i think i lost a couple of years of my life there. >> nik, our best wishes -- >> i'm sorry. >> -- are with you. you always put on a great show.

8:08 am
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 signs 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. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. ♪ [coughing] dave, i'm sorry to interrupt... i gotta take a sick day tomorrow. dads don't take sick days, dads take nyquil.

[ male announcer ] just apply to the gumline of sensitive teeth for a quick 10 minutes. the special ingredient forms a lasting barrier that provides immediate relief and up to one month of protection. see why dental professionals here is the district attorney talking about the arraignment of eric frein. let's listen. good morning, everyone. i'm ray thompkin.
9:39 am
i'm the district attorney here in pooik county. i want to begin by commending law enforcement. the state plif, the atf, the u.s. marshall service. law enforcement for many jurisdictions from our nation. outside of pennsylvania that worked without rest to successfully apprehend eric frein. they are to be commended for their professionalism, persistence, and the resources they brought to capture eric frein. today's preliminary arraignment is the first team in the system. based on the facts in evidence we have charged mr. frein with murder in the first degree. homicide of a law enforcement
9:40 am
officer. attempted murder in the first degree, attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer, assault of a law enforcement officer. possession of weapons of mass destruction, discharged of firearm into an occupied structure. possession of an instrument of crime and reckless endangerment. while eric frein is now in custody, the investigation is still ongoing. the pennsylvania state police, fbi, and atf will continue the investigation so we can build the best case to achieve justice on behalf of the victims and the pennsylvania state police family. we have now started to find the answers that the community desired in this case.
9:41 am
the names in this matter of corporal brian dixon, and officer douglas have suffered a loss of unspeakable proportions. they will never be the same. today we find some comfort as a community that we are taking these next steps toward justice. to my left, a man who needs no introduction i have our lieutenant, members of the state police and my staff. i will take questions now.
9:42 am
>> what was the real break in this case? was there a sighting? what led you to him? >> i will let lieutenant colonel bibbens dress that. >> this was due to the continuing pressure. one of the teams in this case, the u.s. marshalls, located him as part of a routine sweep through the woods that they were conducted. we're not prepared to discuss motives today. that is part of the ongoing investigation. >> referee: has he spok . >> has he spoken since his arrest. >> he has and we will not
9:43 am
comment on anything he has made. >> is there anything at all -- >> no, there was no message. he was transported and then interviewed by members of the pennsylvania state police. >> what does it, emotionally, feel like for you? >> it's difficult for everyone in the state police and especially for the dixon family. there will be no one else injured in the course of this manhunt and that was a big consider. he showed himself to be very dangerous. there was always a lot of concern for the safety of law enforcement, but we're very proud of the work that the men and women of the state police and all of our fellow law enforcement agencies did in
9:44 am
apprehending frein. >> what did you find -- >> the searches are on going as we speak. >> did he say anything after being captured? >> we have been in contact with the family, but i'm not prepared to discuss anything said there. >> did he have any firearms at the time of his arrest -- was there any reason he didn't have the firearms when he was arrested? >> no, i would not speculate. we gained some insight, without going into a lot of detail, i would characterize it as much as we said all along. he was able to get into cabins, other unoccupied structures, find food, he had things hidden, but he was about to get shelter out of the weather as much as we
9:45 am
suspected was occurring. >> no, we're not going to characterize or comment on anything he said. >> my understanding is that he was outside of the hanger and did not go back into the hanger at all. a team was sweeping through and surprised him. gave him commands to surrender, he did and he was -- into custody. >> what happened to his face, it looks like there was a struggle. >> there was no struggle with law enforcement. we talked to us about things that happened in the woods during the 40 plus day period, but that occurred to him at some time in his flight.
9:46 am
we're still working through all of that, it is part of the ongoing investigation. we'll determine where he had been and which sightings were legitimate. that will take time. >> was it sporadic? >> that is part of the investigation. >> any idea a when other locations he was in? >> that's part of this information. we're collecting evidence right now and it will take us time to analyze that compare it to statements he gave us and allow us to map out his entire time out of the woods or in those p cabins. >> did he indicate if there are more explosives in the woods he left behind? >> he did not. yeah, that's still part of
9:47 am
the investigation, we said previously he planned it for years based on other interviews we had done and information we found. we knew it was an extended period of time. as far as refining that belief, that is all part of the investigation. >> is there any indication -- >> that is all part of the investigation. we seized a significant amount of evidence already. >> he characterized his actions in the past as pure evil and i stand by that. >> any idea of the cost? we remain confident he was in this area. everything pointed that he was
9:48 am
here, and that's why we focused the vast majority of our efforts in this area. >> is he cooperating with the investigation? >> for the costs, we're calculating those. we were in the ballpark of $10 million. in the not too distance future i think we will have costs for you. that is a rough idea. >> that's all part of the search that was on going right now. we know there are weapons in the hanger, and those will be collected and processed as part of the ongoing search warrant down there. we'll have to determine that. >> he has spoken with law enforcement, but i'm not going to go any further than that at
9:49 am
this point. >> that will be part of this ongoing investigation. i'm really not prepared to say that's the case. we know that he moved around. hopefully we'll be able to determine how long he stayed in what locations as this unfolds. >> that will be up to the warden of the pike county correctional facility. >> this was a lengthy search, what is the general feeling of the men and women. >> the moral remained high, i will tell you that we brought in numerous waves of people from across the state. troopers that were anxious to come here and there was never a shortage of volunteering offering to come up and while
9:50 am
they were here, they gave a very good effort. i commend the other agencies as well, but i will tell you that i'm proud of the way our people stepped up and never lost faith and they got this done. >> thank you, ladies and gentlemen.
