7:05 am
and please know that our thoughts from prayers are with your niece and the family. have you had an opportunity to speak with your niece? >> yes, i have had an opportunity to speak with her several times. she's doing well. >> there are complicating reports when she began to feel ill. could be earlier than first thought. her mother contacted abc news and said in part much criticism has been offered because she chose to travel home. let me be clear, amber wasn't sick when she came home and wasn't symptomatic when she departed for dallas. what did the family members tell you about when she was feeling ill and has she spoken to you about that? >> amber has spoken to me directly and told me that she didn't feel ill until tuesday morning. >> she traveled back from cleveland on monday. and she contacted the cdc
7:06 am
because she had an elevated -- >> no, no -- >> sir. >> amber never contacted the cdc. amber wasn't in -- under any kind of reporting requirement. they were told, as a precaution, to measure their temperature twice a day. and they were given a threshold over which they should go in to the hospital. >> i want to make it abundantly clear that you're saying that your niece would not have gotten on that plane had she felt that she was ill or at risk or putting anyone else at risk. >> absolutely not. you know, amber is one of the most conscientious individuals i know. and she's certainly not -- would not have done anything to put the other passengers on that plane or her family at risk. >> did your niece express to you or any other family members whether she felt she had the proper equipment there at her hospital to handle this case?
7:07 am
>> at the time treatment was being rendered, they were given, you know, the protective gear. and information on how to put it on and remove it. and it's multiple players and they -- i believe had some assurance from the -- the people providing direction that they were protected and isolated. it's -- given that a mistake in protocol can put you at risk, they would be very difficult for any person to go and put on this equipment and treat a -- a patient with a deadly disease if you're -- i don't know if this is going to protect you or not, but go in there. >> that is something that is being discussed, sir.
7:08 am
>> right. >> thank you very much. all the best to your niece, amber, to the entire family. hopefully you all will be reunited very soon and wish you all a speedy recovery. thank you, sir. >> thun >> thank you. the family going to dallas, but she had gone to emory. she did what she was supposed to, she called the texas health officials with an elevated temperature. they called the cdc and relayed the information back to her that it was okay. >> that was the chain of calls. and turn now to the executive at the center of the outbreak, dr. daniel vargo. the head of the hospital being criticized. and dr. richard besser spoke with him. >> reporter: your hospital is the first one where a patient walked in off the street and you missed it, how did that happen? >> we were well-prepared to take care of a patient who walked in
7:09 am
holding a sign that says i have ebola. and a couple weeks ago, it was a gentleman walking in off the street with non-specific symptoms who hadn't had ebola. it's a different concept than diagnosing ebola than being able to treat ebola and being prepared to diagnose it. and we were short on that. i think we've all in the health care community underestimated the challenge of diagnose. >> reporter: when mr. duncan came in the second time, he was quite sick. if he hadn't been sent home the first time, would he be lei today? >> the second visit comes with a neon sign. we're proud of how we managed that. really wished we picked that up on the 26th. >> reporter: people want to know how two nurses wearing protective gear got ebola. how did that happen? >> we know that nina was the first care giver to accept mr.
7:10 am
duncan as he came up from the emergency department. it was at a time prior to mr. duncan's diagnosis, or confirmed diagnosis of ebola. nina's personal protective equipment was absolutely in compliance with the cdc recommendations at the time. and as soon as we had the confirmation of the ebola diagnose, all of the personal protective equipment in the mic uconn ve-- converted them. we had no break in protocol. we were working with the best information we had. in retrospect, would we have liked to hermetically sealed them so this didn't happen? absolutely. >> some people have raised questions that mr. duncan did not get the same kind of care that the initial patients got at emory. the two missionaries who were
7:11 am
treated. how do you respond to that? >> our care givers treat everybody the same. single standard of care. i'm absolutely comfortable that our care givers treated mr. duncan like anyone else. >> reporter: should future patients be sent to specialized units? >> yeah. i would consider us a specialized unit. >> he said the nurses followed the guidance to the letter. >> i expected him to throw a little blame in the cdc's direction. but he said that the cdc was learning along with them. they were following the guidance as it was. but following that guidance, two of their nurses got sick. >> what are the universe of people who were exposed to mr. duncan? how close are they to being in the clear at this point? >> reporter: the good news for those exposed to him before he came into the hospital, sunday is the 21st day.
7:12 am
it would be unusual for anyone who had the exposure to get sick. in the hospital, this is the critical period. day nine, and someone is exposed and sick, they're going to show symptoms right around now. >> rich and i will be holding a facebook town hall meeting on ebola this afternoon. you can post on "gma's" facebook page. on a live stream at on yahoo! and the latest on sunday on "this week." >> a lot of families are talking utah abo about this with their children. rich will help you discuss this with your children. now to a major -- well, it's involving vice president joe biden. his son, hunter biden, was discharged from the navy earlier this year. we are learning why. he tested positive for cocaine. jim avila has that story for us. >> reporter: he is the second son, hunter biden, who his father, the vice president,
7:13 am
completed the biden military family. joining the reserves at 43 years old. joking about the late decision. >> we have a lot of bad decisions, my son who's over 40 joined the navy. >> reporter: but now pride is shame. the 44-year-old hunter failed a drug test, testing positive for cocaine and was discharged in january of 2014. this was his second public run in with drugs. he had to get a waiver in the first place due to a prior incident as a young man. he became an officer as part of a direct commission program designed to recruit professionals into the navy. and he was assigned to a public affairs support unit in virginia. he's now a managing partner at an investment company. he released the statement
7:14 am
overnight. it was the honor of my life to serve in the navy. and i'm embarrassed that they led to the administrative discharge. i respect the decision. with the love and support of my family. i'm moving forward. now to the monster storm in the atlantic. hurricane gonzalo, expected to make land this afternoon. ginger is tracking it all. >> we're just hours away from this thing impacting bermuda. on the satellite, the high clouds making it in, obscuring the first and last sunrise today. and clouds in quickly by this afternoon and evening, hurricane-type force. major hurricane, 115 miles per hour possible. and the path, clips newfoundl d newfoundland. to what's going to happen. the impacts here for bermuda. winds over 100 miles per hour. storm surge, 10 plus feet and waves, 20 feet. a lot of people asking will it

7:16 am
there was an outcry for more privacy laws on mobile devices. but now according to the fbi director, google and apple may have gone too far. introducing encryption so sophisticated, it could put lives at risk. >> we can't crack the password, and it's on the phone. >> reporter: it will block authorities from accessing the devices even with a court order to obtain critical evidence. >> it's the closet that can't be opened, a safe deposit box that can't be opened. >> reporter: tech companies say they need to protect their customers, who are under con strant threat of hacking. and google was blunt. we are providing the added security to our users while giving law enforcement appropriate access when presented with a warrant. pierre thomas, abc news, washington. well, a nightmare for tourists in arkansas were

michael jackson linked to her death. and the dangers of putting your home up for sale. prospective buyers and even realtors stealing from homeowners. >> a lot of good information. but first, the utah man accused ever killing his wife to cash in a $1 million insurance policy. conrad truman is expected back on the stand this morning. neal karlinsky has the story. >> reporter: he is at center of this murder case, and conrad truman faced the jury to defend himself. >> did you shoot your wife? >> no. >> did you kill your wife? >> no. >> truman is accused of murdering his wife, heidi truman, in 2012. it was rafr a night of drinking and watching "dexter," about a serial killer. much of the trial is focused on
7:32 am
his demeanor. his frantic 911 call. >> i really don't know what happened. >> reporter: reports that he threat tonight kill them if they didn't save his wife. and his at times erratic police interrogati interrogation. >> you are a jerk, man, you are a jerk. i was just confused. i didn't know what was going on. >> reporter: even his behavior around her body, scrutinized. >> i was touching her feet. and i felt her leagring h leg. and i thought why would she shoot her legs to commit suicide. >> reporter: but what about police allegations that he changed story, she may have shot herself by accident or a gunshot from outside the house. >> can you explain why you have given different versions as to what may have occurred? >> i know i didn't have a gun, didn't shoot a gun. >> reporter: his lawyer asked to have the case dismissed thursday, saying there's no evidence that he fired a shot. the judge refused, and conrad
7:33 am
truman is expected to be back on the stand later today for a grillingly prosecutors. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, seattle. >> dan abrams is here. the defendant on the stand, it's crucial. >> once they take the stand. i always say it's an important moment in the case. in this case, it's even more important. why? because the most compelling evidence against him are the conflicting statements. one point, it's an intruder. shot through the window, no bullet holes in the window. it was a mistake. i think she fell and accidently killed herself. he's completely changed his story. and now he's taking the stand. and whether the jurors believe him becomes the entirety of the case. >> cuts both ways. it could be an argument for staying off -- >> his lawyers did a mock cross examination. he must have been able to survive a mock cross examination
7:34 am
to put him on the stand. there's not a ton of evidence against him. it's one of these cases, you look at it, wow, his story's fishy. but there may not be enough evidence to convict. so for him to testify, suddenly provides the prosecution with the opportunity, if they effectively cross examine him, to have some new evidence. >> that's the question, no physical evidence he shot the gun. what do prosecutors do? >> they have to focus on the inconsistent statements. they have the medical examiner's testimony, suggesting she was killed at very close range. seems to rule out the possibility she was shot at from far away and rules out the possibility of an accident, which are the two possible defense theories. if you believe the medical examiner, the defense is in trouble. but they have to focus on the inconsistent statements. this is where being a good lawyer matters. it tests your chops in the way you cross-examine this defendant. if this prosecutor is effective, could be problems for the
7:35 am
defendant. if the defendant survives the cross examination, could be a different story. >> thanks very much. and now to the late comedian joan rivers. the medical examiner releasing the report on the cause of her death. concluding it was a cliks from the procedure. and mara schiavocampo has the story. >> reporter: good morning. at the family's request, an autopsy was not performed, but officials did examine rivers and go through medical rorldecords, piecing together what happened in those final moments. cause confirmed. this morning, the long-awaited results of the medical examiner's report on joan rivers revealing the comedian died of brain damage due to a lack of sufficient oxygen in her blood while sedated for a procedure to work on acid reflux and changes in her voice. >> the brain can only survive for so long, and the heart for
7:36 am
so long before a cardiac arrest course. >> reporter: though it doesn't explain what exactly caused the lack of oxygen, it is a quote therapeutic complication, and suggests there were no obvious medical errors. also revealing she was sedated with propofol, the same powerful anesthetic that conrad murray prescribed michael jackson, leading to the pop star's death. >> what makes propofol good for anesthesia, it works quickly. but in putting someone to sleep, it can and does slow the breathing rate, that can result in a low oxygen level. >> reporter: her daughter, melissa, responding to the report. we continue to be saddened for our tragic loss and grateful for the enormous outpouring of love and support from around the world. the 81-year-old comic legend died in september. one week after going into cardiac arrest during this
