7:03 am
gives you a taste of my poor fashion sense. >> i'm not going to give my opinion on that. we are going to start this morning and i'm going play it safe here, with that triple threat of severe weather on this holiday weekend. check this out. three pieces of video. this is tropical storm bud hitting land overnight. and these are the hard rains hitting the caribbean friday from beryl, now lurching towards florida. and this is one of the wildfires in the country as a massive heat wave settles over half of america. our meteorologist ginger zee has a full plate this morning. ginger, good morning to you. >> good morning to you, dan, the heat is going to be the headline especially here in the states. look at this. tens of millions of folks are going to feel like july. not just the heat but the humidity, for cities like chicago, that will end up in the upper 90s. that is where we find an extension of our team, alex perez, live in chicago this morning. >> reporter: good morning. for a lot of people, this is the
7:04 am
type of weather they had been hoping for this weekend. for a big part of the country, the unofficial start of summer will be a sizzling one. millions of americans hitting the road this weekend, most driving in blazing temperatures, 99 degrees expected in st. louis. a sweltering 94 in atlanta. and in indianapolis, bracing for the hottest indy 500 on record. the mercury expected to rev up to 96 degrees sunday. and the oppressive heat has already hit down south. at this high school graduation in georgia, several had to be treated for heat exhaustion. they were desperately looking for relief. >> they are trying to find shade, getting water. i saw a couple that had to leave. didn't look well. one more left an ambulance. >> reporter: the high temperatures have many across the country on high alert. this weekend's marathon in madison, wisconsin, has been canceled because of the scorching heat. look at this map, wildfires across the u.s., and there in
7:05 am
the southwest, the white area, a smokey haze the fires are throwing off, stretching across multiple states. even in florida. look at this. you can see thick, black smoke hanging in the sky above epcot center in disney world in orlando. the biggest fire right now, in new mexico. that fire has already torched through more than a dozen homes. >> basically, what is left is someone's personal belongings is a metal roof and a fireplace. >> reporter: and because of that smoke and haziness in the air, authorities are asking people who live near the wildfires to try to limit their time outdoors. ginger? the weather is going do the fires no justice, and not helping out at all. 70-mile-an-hour gusts. look behind that low pressure system. and the wind goes nowhere. we are going to see dry and windy conditions through memorial day. different story on the east coast. a much rainier and still windy. we will look at a picture out of cuba. this is what happened when what was to become beryl rolled through cuba.
7:06 am
yes, very heavy rains falling. and now the storm is just off the carolinas, more than 200 miles, really. but it looks like a mess of thunderstorms. it's called a subtropical storm because of its disorientation. here is what we do. we watch the storm pass by 2:00 a.m. early memorial day right along the state line near georgia and florida. that's the path by memorial day early morning. and what does it mean? it means some gusty winds, not too terrible but heavy rains and we are also going to look for really gross cloud cover. not anything you want for your barbecue. finally a look at bud. and bud was a hurricane at one point. 24 hours ago, the strongest ever this early in the season. it went to almost nothing as it hit parts of western mexico. more coming up in the next couple minutes. dan and paula? >> ginger is in for a busy weekend. a lot of weather out there. let's check the forecast -- let's get the other headlines. we did check the forecast. let's check the rest of the
7:07 am
morning's headlines now with my other friend, ron claiborne. >> good morning to you, dan and paula. good morning, everyone. the fbi is investigating a man who rushed towards a cockpit at the end of a flight from jamaica to miami. the 24-year-old canadian will be in court tuesday facing federal and state charges in connection with that. the flight was taxiing to the gate and the man defied crew instructions to be seated and headed for the cockpit. other passengers tackled him and turned him over at the gate. new details in the disappearance of a louisiana college student mickey shunick. the police have a new surveillance video they believe shows her on a bicycle. the night she disappeared. investigators are looking for information on a white pickup truck also seen in that video. the 22-year-old was last seen early saturday a week ago riding her bicycle home from a friend's house. the former university of virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend is seeking a new trial. attorneys have file the papers for a new proceeding, for a
7:08 am
series of errors before and during his trial. he was convicted in february and faced 26 years in prison. >> sbhnchts a very emotional president joe biden opening up about his own family tragedy in a speech to families offalen soldiers in virginia. he talked about the intense grief he felt after losing his first wife and 1-year-old daughter in a car accident in 1972. >> for the first time, i knew how someone could consciously decide to commit suicide. not because they were deranged and not because they were nuts. because they had been to the top of the mountain and knew they would never get there again. >> biden says meeting and later marrying his current wife, jill, saved his life. he told the families, eventua y eventually, they will be able to smile thinking of the fallen family or spouse.
7:09 am
and the international space station entered the dragon this morning a day after its historic docking. the capsule is the first to be sent to space by a private business. the capsule is filled with supplies for the space station. it's scheduled to return to earth next thursday. and finally a neighborhood in fresno, california, turned into a rodeo of sorts friday. residents reported that a 1600-pound bull was running through their neighborhood. they didn't know it was 1600 pounds. discovered that later. police responded and an officer on the force with 30 years of roping experience, he managed to lasso the bull. disturbance resolved. listen. i don't know where the bull came from. it ended up running around fresno. i have been looking into it. >> spain? >> that would be a story. >> you have never run with the bulls, did you? >> no, i watched. from a safe distance. that is enough for me. >> thanks, ron. this morning, we are learning more about the man charged with killing a 6-year-old boy in new york 33 years ago. etan patz is one of the most famous missing child cases ever. and yesterday, the man who
7:10 am
police say confessed to his murder is formally charged. police are reviewing the evidence against him. abc's t.j. winnik is here with that story. good morning. >> reporter: pedro hernandez remains hospitalized. his attorney claims he is schizophrenic and bipolar. he will under go psychiatric evaluation before taking to jail. after 33 year, charges at last in new york's famous cold case. the complaint, just five paragraphs long, charges pedro hernandez, seen here in this photo, with one count of murderer in the second degree for alleged by strangling etan patz and placing him in a plastic bag, thereby causing his death. the only evidence cited, his alleged confession to a new york city police detective. police say that he was working in a soho bodega just down the
7:11 am
block from where the 6-year-old waited each morning. in the arraignment, the district attorney proclaims it's been 33 years and justice has not been done. prosecutors told the court he made similar admissions to others. >> in the years following etan's disappearance, hernandez had told a family member and others he had "done a bad thing and killed a child in new york." >> reporter: etan's father, stan patz, returned home friday to the same soho loft where he and his family lived for over three decades. he had no comment. pedro hernandez was arraigned in not a courtroom but by his bed side in new york city's bellevue hospital where he was taken friday morning. authorities concerned he was suicidal. the suspect's mental health may be a charge for prosecutors whose case now depends on the 3 1/2-hour confession. >> his mental state today is only relevant to whether he can stand trial. will he understand the proceedings against him?
7:12 am
it won't help him with we regard to what his mental state was 33 years a guy. >> reporter: a former soho neighbor remembers that hernandez was one of the few teenagers in the neighborhood who didn't join in the search in the weeks after the boy disappeared. he did been recently living with his ex-wife and daughter in southern new jersey. dan? >> thank you. the big question right now is whether the case really is closed. let's bring in abc news cons consoltant and former fbi agent brad garrett. good morning. this is the criminal complaint. that was released overnight. if you look, it's recently thin, and the hinges entirely on the confession. without a body and a crime scene, what can the cops do now to get enough evidence for a conviction? >> they are going to have to build a relationship between etan and pedro. in other words, were there people working at the bodega or around the doddega that saw the two of them together. it's hard to buy that he could
7:13 am
go in the basement with hernandez. that is one key avenue they have to pursue. was there a past history between the two of them? beyond that, you want to look for other confessions that t.j. alluded to. in other words, going back to 1979 and forward, apparently, someone in 1971 heard him make some version of a confession. were there others? you want to find those people and independently interview them. because that does capture his thought at the moment about them and maybe provide more detail. it's a real problem for the police. because they are probably never going to have any forensics. i understand they have gone back to what used to be the bodega, but the idea, unless this was a very violent death, there is not going to be any forensics left probably in the basement of this building. >> "the new york times" makes an interesting point this morning. juries care about motive.
7:14 am
why did it happen? at this point, we don't know why hernandez may have done this. how big of a hurdle is that for prosecutors moving forward? >> it's very big. the real question is, does pedro even know what his motives were at the time? clearly, if it moved into a sexual arena, that would be an important component if it's true. so they are going -- you are exactly right, they have to get to the bottom of that. >> brad garrett, always valuable to have your insight. appreciate it, thank you. paula. over to you. >> thank you very much. now a story that sounds like the da vinci code crossed with a spy novel. one of the people closest to pope benedict, his personal butler, is under arrest for accused of leaking confidential documents. this morning, officials are looking for accomplices. we get the details from jeffrey kofman in london. good morning, jeffrey. >> reporter: good morning. it has all the ingredients of a thriller. the setting, the vatican. the story, scandalous leaks of papal documents.
7:15 am
who did it? well, it's the vatican investigators to be believed, the butler did it. and no, we are not kidding. he is at the pope's side from morning to midnight. that is butler pablo gabrielle pouring papal wine. and there he is sitting in the front seat of the popemobile literally at the pope's right hand. he dresses the pope, serves him, tends to his every need. now, the vatican says he has betrayed him. >> the notion this betrayal could have come not from somebody on the outside of the system or a minor functionary, but from someone who was in the papal apartment and a member of the papal family, obviously is going to cause a great crisis of caution. >> reporter: for months, italian newspapers had been filled with stories of corruption, bribery
7:16 am
inside the vatican of pope benedict xvi. the vatican leak scandal, vati leaks, as the media calls it, had to be an inside job. but the nagging question -- but who done it? investigators said they found a stash of confidential documents inside the butler's private home. >> most people suspect that even if the butler is involved, he may also be a convenient scapegoat for people that are higher up in the system. >> reporter: sound familiar? >> i need access to the vatican archives. >> access to the archives is only by decree of the father. >> reporter: it could be a plot twist ripped from dan brown's thriller "angels and demons." but vati leaks is not fiction. it's a huge embarrassment to the pope, highlighting corruption and lack at oversight at the vatican bank and staggering mismanagement of the vatican itself. and there is no jail in the vatican. the butler is held in a secure room some where in the compound.
7:17 am
there is an old saying that in the vatican, everything is mysterious but nothing is secret. it feels like that these days. dan? >> well said, thank you. we have good news this morning in the valiant struggle waged in a hospital room in georgia by this young woman. the victim of a very rare flesh eating bacteria. her father said she just achieved a gold medal moment. steve osunsami tells us what it is. >> reporter: for the first time since that rare infection began to take over her body, aimee copeland is finally breathing on her own and is now able to sit up for hours at a time. >> that's a big victory. because it's something that no one anticipated. the doctors didn't order it. she requested it. in my mind what it says, it says a lot about the strength of her spirit. she is one step back to being her normal self. >> reporter: her father shared the news on this facebook support page. in the most beautifully written words. saying that each breath is a victory.
7:18 am
each heart beat is a cause for celebration. when she opens her eyes, that is like a ticker tape parade down broadway. when she mouths words, angelic hosts rejoice. >> i would hope that every father out there loves their children as i love they daughters. my daughters mean everything in the world for me. i would do anything. i would die for my entire family. >> reporter: she was hurt may 1st after a zip line accident over a georgia river. a common water bacteria got caught in her wound. she lost that leg and most of her limbs. ♪ georgia southern belle fell down a wishing well ♪ she had a special visitor this week. singer/song writer cory durkin wrote a song for aimee copeland, calling her a southern belle who fell down a wishing well. he has been following her father's facebook posts. he traveled to georgia, sat beside her hospital bed and sang the song. and she smiled. ♪ i don't know anything about you but i want ♪ >> you could see her mouthing the words and i picked it up.
7:19 am
she said basically, she thanked him from the bottom of her heart and told him she really, really appreciated it. >> reporter: steve osunsami, abc news, atlanta. >> i know a lot of you want to know if the severe weather is going to dampen your holiday plans. let's check back in with ginger zee. ginger? >> your weather is a part of holiday weekend. and it was yesterday too. let's take a look at the tornado pictures we got in. just incredible rope tornadoes. usually means they were dying out. and there were multimillion reports, 32 reported. likely when they are filtered, you will see less tornado. impressive pictures out of walker, kansas, the last tornado you are seeing. west central kansas was the heart of it yesterday. who gets it today? isolated tornadoes. damaging winds and large hail possible. in red, the general thunderstorms in orange. from the plains, oklahoma and texas panhandle and one area in eastern wyoming. now, all of that heat and

7:22 am
all that time, alluding capture and bellying up to an all you can eat sardine buffet. that is him taunting his pursuers. yesterday, it was his captors doing the daunting. the captor telling the press he caught the bird with his own bare hand. 337 is not the first animal to go rogue. this deadly cobra fled from the bronx zoo for six days and lived to tweet about it. and this chimpanzee in japan, he spent hours fighting for his freedom. remember this peacock? he flew the coop from a central park zoo for an afternoon of people watching in new york city. still, none have managed to hold on to freedom as long as this penguin. back in tokyo, 337 is in his home, safe and sound. tokyo's sea life park says he will do his time behind newly reinforced walls.
