this morning on "world news now" -- isis manhunt. the fbi zeroing in on that masked terrorist thought to be an american. the new leads on his identity and if there are more like him who may eventually try to come home. disturbing details of eric frein's alleged deadly assault all found in a journal being read aloud by the police he targeted. and new images and sightings of the suspect as the manhunt continues. extreme weather. tornadoes in the midwest ripping people right out of their homes. similar monster storms toppling trees and power lines in the northeast. the nation bracing for tough forecasts through the weekend. and he wrote a song saying he wanted to get a go, get a go, get her back. he even named his latest album after her, but was it enough to save robin thicke's a-list marriage?
3:31 am
the answer in "the skinny" on this thursday, october 9th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." >> good morning. i'm reena ninan. >> i'm t.j. holmes. glad you could spend some time with us here on this thursday. >> we're almost there. one more day after this. >> but then next week happens. >> that's right. >> okay. >> you'll get some sleep over the weekend. it will be better. trust me. our top story, we are always talking about isis. it never ends. there's always some new development. and it's going over to the fbi. they are looking for americans who want to help isis or people who may already have. >> the bureau now getting substantial help from the public. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross with the latest. >> reporter: the fbi says it's received what it called a substantial number of tips about the identity of the masked isis fighter believed to be an american or canadian.

3:34 am
get something beefed up attention. senator bill nelson from florida is saying that we should stop giving visas to these countries where they have these large ebola epidemics. >> the cdc will tell you that's going too far. the last thing you need to do is isolate these countries when they are going through this hell. we need to calm ourselves. you can't just shut them down at this point. but that's -- it just scares people to hear someone say we need to cut these people off altogether. >> a lot of fear mongering. >> people are scared. they have a right to be. we don't know ebola in this country. it's been such a foreign thing. now it's here. moving on, today is the 27th day that authorities in pennsylvania will be hunting for eric frein. he's the suspect in last month's deadly ambush of state troopers. >> new images of frein this morning. police have been reading also from his journal. abc's linzie janis with the details. >> reporter: the new images of fugitive eric frein from the

3:36 am
chilling account, i can only describe eric frein's actions as pure evil. >> thanks to abc's linzie janis reporting there. police say their most recent sighting of frein came tuesday afternoon when an officer thought he caught a glimpse of him from about 200 yards away. some extreme weather starting in massachusetts. this video shot from a drone showing hundreds of downed -- damaged trees. they were brought down early yesterday by a microburst, a strong storm packing winds up to 100 miles an hour. power lines in that area also stood no chance. that left several homes in the dark. a couple people suffered minor injuries but nothing serious. officials confirm that a tornado tore through parts of kentucky tuesday. for bridget clark, she managed to survive a frightening experience after those strong winds carried her from her kitchen to the porch. >> all of a sudden, the roof came down on my head. and then it sounded like just a swift wind just blew me off the side of my kitchen door.

3:39 am
around here. >> lions and camels and bears, oh, my. officials in suburban denver were called to free this black bear from the front seat of the car. although he really looks just fine. >> yeah, what is he doing? he's chilling. why are they bothering him. the bear facts here are no tickets were issued. the bear is fine. the car, not so much. we're talking about insurance claims with the other animal a moment ago, the mountain lion. so this guy -- again, you have pictures of it, evidence. i'm sure you're covered. >> you know who responded. officials that responded were the sheriff's deputy and for backup, the wildlife officials. >> the backup? >> yeah. >> but the bear is okay, right? is that the key in a situation like this? do you want to make sure the bear is okay? >> i think you have to make sure you can get out with your shirt still on which reminds me of a song. ♪ bad bears bad bears who you gonna call ♪ >> isn't it what you gonna do? >> well, what you gonna do.
