family dispute or kidnapping. both parents were questioned but they weren't considered suspects. one of the questions they want answered is why when the baby was discovered at 6:00 they waited until 6:20 to call police. hope to get some answer later on today. >> thank you. bail is a million dollars for the man arrested for beating giants fan bryan stow in los angeles in march. >> police made the arrest at daybreak yesterday. sharon chin is in san francisco where stow is still in critical condition and has more. good morning. reporter: good morning. the big break in the case came from a parole officer. he happened to notice that one of his parolees apparently was adding several new tatoos on his neck apparently to cover one that he already had. lapd s.w.a.t. teams armed with search warrants raided a home in an east hollywood apartment building early sunday morning. at the apartment, police say 31- year-old giovanni ramirez surrendered.
police believe he is the key suspect in the beating of giants fan bryan stow. they believe he is the main agresser in beating bryan stow. an "l.a. times" source says three witnesses identified him in a line-up. lapd's chief says the arrest follows a parole officer's hunt and hundreds of tips. 20 full time detectives have been on the case for more than 6,000 hours. >> during that work, surveillance was done, a lot of background investigation was done and more information was developed that led to enough information that we were able to obtain a search warrant for this individual. >> reporter: the arrest comes 52 days after bryan stow was brutally beaten in the parking lot of dodger stadium after the season opener. the santa cruz paramedic and father of two remains in critical condition here at san francisco general hospital. investigators are now looking for two other suspects another man who took part in the beating and a woman who drove the getaway car. police and s.w.a.t. team members say they seized evidence from the apartment building where they arrested
ramirez in a home. >> need to understand that we're not going to stop that we're going to continue working hard that we have the first suspect and we will identify you and bring you in. >> reporter: he was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on a million dollars bail. detectives say he has previous convictions for weapons and robbery charges. after the raid, police detained several people for questioning as they continue this investigation but certainly a big break with this first arrest. >> a huge break. thank you, sharon chin live at san francisco. bryan stow's mother meanwhile tells kcbs radi she never gave up hope. >> they were so compassionate with our family and reached out to us and made a promise they wouldn't rest until they got these guys.
i didn't think about it. i knew it was going to be taken care of. and obviously, they did what they promised. >> the family will have more comments on the case on its website sometime today. let's get a check of traffic and weather. >> language on to your hats this morning. certainly breeze -- hang on to your hats this morning. certainly breezy at the bay shores and at the coastline. gusts up to 4 miles an hour at ocean beach and gusty conditions in daly city at 30 and you can see other parts of the bay area not quite as breezy right now. but by the afternoon, we should see breezing throughout the bay area and the reason for that is that we are seeing a system move through that's bringing some showers to the north of us, northern parts of california. we are staying dry for the meantime but we are going to see those breezes a little later on and highs for today similar to yesterday high 50s
at the coast low 70s inland. we'll have more later on in the show but first elizabeth has traffic. >> thank you. first of all let you know we just took a call from the kcbs phone force. a new accident on the nimitz northbound 880 approaching 5th and embarcadero. sounds like a couple of lanes are blocked so we have launched chopper 5. they are about to head towards that scene. it sounds like traffic is backed up about a quarter mile right now and growing. let's go to our maps and we can show you more traffic conditions across the bay area. bay bridge high wind advisory in effect at the bay bridge toll plaza, san mateo bridge and westbound 580 traffic out of the altamont pass. so yeah, breezy conditions causing some issues on the roads as well this morning. back to you. >> thank you. 6 7. a monster tornado killed dozens of people in missouri. neighborhoods have been wiped up. how much gas prices should drop just in time for the big

this is the monster tornado that ripped through a missouri town killing dozens and leaving a path of destruction in its wake. >> this morning, the missouri national guard is aiding in search and rescue efforts. jim spellman is live in joplin missouri with the latest. >> reporter: we learned this morning that the death toll is currently 89 people here in joplin. they expect that, unfortunately to rise. to try to keep that number as low as possible they are doing a door-to-door grid search right now. every structure in town that looked damaged that somebody possibly still trying to keep shelter in it they are going to try to keep them and keep that death toll down. they have a lot of obstacles. there is no electricity, downed power lines making roads impassable, gas lines broken and there are fires from the gas lines. there is debris everywhere. take a look at this. cars strewn about like toys.
you think this was a junkyard but it's a hospital, st. john's regional medical center. the hospital took a direct hit right where people would go in a disaster like this for help out of commission. even the medevac helicopter destroyed on the helipad near the emergency room. a huge it's tok help anybody that's here. and more huge for this community to try to find a way to come back long term. back to you. >> jim, exactly what time did this tornado hit and did people get a warning? do you have tornado sirens in the area? >> yes. indeed, actually they got a 20- minute warning. usually they only get about a seven-minute warning. we're not sure how much that may have saved people. if you were taking shelt near home, we have seen block after block, mile after mile of completely destroyed homes. i'm not sure what kind of shelter any of these structures would give you and it's really that scope that i think is ultimately going to be the biggest impact. we're used to seeing one neighborhood, you know, perhaps destroyed. but this is just block after
block, mile after mile. it's staggering. i have never seen anything like this. >> how big a path? was it a mile wide? how long? how long did it do its damage. >> reporter: well, we are not sure how long it went. they say it was about a half mile to three-quarters of a mile, but that it went on for miles and miles. driving into town, it's so random, you know, you go for several blocks and everything is normal then you cross the line into that path of destruction and it looks like you have entered a war zone. there is no other way to describe it. it looks like you're in a foreign country in the middle of a war or something. even though half mile to three- quarters mile doesn't sound big, right through the heart of town where so many people live and work, that's why i think it's going to have such a huge impact. it hit right in the worst possible place. back to you. >> it's amazing that -- i'm sure they will find some other bodies sadly but 89 people considering what we're seeing there is you know -- it's very

recently paroled from prison. ramirez was arrested and you can see in this video from the scene inside an apartment on mariposa avenue and it's in the east hollywood area of los angeles, after that parole agent tipped off police to his whereabouts, the lapd says they are still trying to track down the second suspect and a woman who drove them away from the stadium. we heard from bryan stow's mother ann stow. she told our sister station as now, kcbs radio in san francisco, that this celebration of the first break in the case would be with her son at san francisco general hospital. stow says the 42-year-old paramedic and father of two opened his eyes but remains in critical condition after he was beaten badly at the dodgers home opener and really right now we can tell you that the suspect is behind bars on a $1 million bail. he was booked on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. and in this case, that deadly weapon was his foot. frank and sydnie? >> all right, kirk. thanks very much, kirk hawkins

arrested of the beating of bryan stow. sharon chin reports from san francisco general hospital where stow remains hospitalized. >> good morning. you know, the last seven weeks, police have gotten more than 630 tips but the big lead, the one that made the difference came from a hunch from a parole officer. this all came to a head early yesterday morning when l.a. s.w.a.t. teams armed with search warrants raided an east hollywood apartmentling with and they arrested 31-year-old giovanni ramirez. police believe he is the key suspect in the beating of giants fan bryan stow. investigators say a parole agent had a hunch after he apparently added new tatoos over the old one on his neck. a weekend of surveillance led to the arrest. an "l.a. times" source says three witnesses identified him in a line-up. lapd's chief says he got the word from his operations chief. >> he said the words that i have been waiting for for seven weeks.

to our metering lightses being turned on over at the bay bridge toll plaza. that means that our backups aren't too bad, either. i think chopper is going to head that way right now. we have a high wind advisory in effect at the bay bridge, san mateo bridge and one for westbound 580 out of the altamont pass. there is that live look at traffic approaching the pay gates. and it actually looks like maybe they just turned on the metering lights. a little hard to tell you about yeah, so pretty slow up the incline, as well. thank you, chopper 5. all right. let's go to our maps. want to let you know about alameda harbor bay ferry service. no service right now and it's actually due to all these high winds. there's some wind damage to the walkway that leads to the boat. so yeah, no alameda harbor bay ferry service at all this morning. ace train numbers one and three fine. muni and caltrain no problems. that is your traffic. back to you. >> thank you. things are settled down again at san quentin state prison after nearly 200 inmates rioted over the weekend starting at 7:00 last night at

good morning. >> reporter: hi, frank. with 600 million members now, 70% living outside the u.s., it's easy to see why facebook is looking for more foreign representation. the company's putting together a global policy team whose job will be to be the face of facebook to foreign governments and also report back about any privacy or regulatory issues that are different from in the u.s. a tech analyst says facebook is trying to find ways to survive and thrive internationally. >> that means that they have to have good relationships with the government where they are operating. that's not always easy. whether it's google or facebook, they are going to come up against free speech issues, come up against taxation issues. >> reporter: google did something similar to this back in 2006. if you're interested in any of these positions, the bar is being set pretty high by facebook. the company is posting for its middle east position says the applicant needs at least 10
years of experience in government and industry, be fluent in english, turkish and arabic, fluent in foreign media and have a passionate belief in facebook. that's the latest from silicon valley. back to you guys. >> that rules us out. [ laughter ] >> but still, i can see a lot of perhaps diplomats or former diplomats who say i want to get into the tech world. >> the coup in egypt started on facebook, did it not? rallying support and such? so it's really something. >> thank you, kcbs radio's matt bigler at the silicon valley bureau. lance armstrong is accused of covering up a positive test for doping. the new claims came out in an interview with "60 minutes" last night. his ex-teammate tyler hamilton said he saw armstrong inject himself with a banned drug epo. >> what did you actually witness? >> uhm....... i mean, i -- i saw it in his

morning. temperatures as you make your way outside are in the high 40s and low 50s and you will definitely feel breezes along the bay shores and at the coast and you will continue to feel those breezes into today in the afternoon. conditions in our warmest spots only making it to the low 70s certainly cooler at the bay in the 60s and at the coast keeping it cool there in the high 50s. we are seeing gust as high as 30 miles an hour along the coastline and the reason for that is this low that's passing through bringing showers to the north of us, no wet weather here. but as you see this area of high pressure builds in we'll calm things down for a little bit but then we do have a chance of showers back in the forecast because of this low that will make its way into the bay area so wednesday you might need to grab the umbrella but today, plenty of sunshine in store and temperatures that look like this. 67 in fremont, 69 santa clara, 71 cupertino, and 68 in redwood city. over in the east bay a little bit cooler at the shore. 65 alameda, 74 livermore. in the north bay seeing cool conditions at the coast. 57 in stinson beach, 68 in vallejo.

back to you. >> thank you. problems in europe are putting a big damper on the international markets today. >> let's go to jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com for the latest. jason, good morning. >> reporter: it was a year ago at this time when europe's debt crisis exploded sending the stock market here in this country on a downward spiral for a little while. then we saw some bailouts take place including greece. but greece once again is having problems meeting its obligations. it's causing a lot of worries that it could default on its debt. that's where the issue regarding dominique strauss- kahn the former head of the imf accused of sexual assault and other charges is causing problems. imf is key in trying to bring the crisis to a point where they could figure out greece' problems and that vacuum is causing lots of issues over in greece. and elsewhere in europe, as well. other countries that are much bigger players like italy and spain are also causing a lot of concern this morning about their debt issues. as a result, we saw overseas
stock markets sell off big time putting a lot of pressure on the euro which is trading at a two-month low against the dollar at $1.39. that's bad news for a lot of companies here in this country who have been doing a lot of business overseas because of a weaker dollar. that's one of the reasons why profits have been increasingly getting higher as each quarter has gone by. and as the dollar heads higher, it's pushing stocks a little lower. we are seeing that right now on wall street. the dow is dropping by 131 points. nasdaq is down by 45. s&p is lower by 15. linkedin had its massive debut last week in which its stock more than doubled on thursday to $94, pulled back on friday and now a security expert from india tells reuters there is a vulnerability issue on linkedin particularly with its lockin cookie with your log in and a cookie is stored on your computer so you can get back on the site without having to sign
n apparently linkedin's cookie lasts for a year making it easy for a hacker to get into your site without a password. linkedin is working on scrambling cookies in the coming months hoping to resolve it sooner. >> thank you, jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. all right. let's take you to ireland now. these are live pictures of crowds of people waiting for president obama and the first lady. it is the first stop on a six- day, four-nation tour of europe. wow. >> they had the queen there last week and president this week. >> big, big crowds. he is going to visit his ancestral home of moneygall. his great-great-great- grandfather came to the u.s. back in 1850. very, very excited. >> why not. >> for his visit. >> pack of irish fans, too. 6:50. the husband is out of the picture but it looks like there is a bit of a domestic dispute among osama bin laden's three widows at least that's what a
pakistani official is telling the australiaial website. he says that the two older wives believe that the much younger wife may have tipped off american intelligence officials about the al qaeda leader's hideout. all three wives lived in the compound when bin laden was killed there three weeks ago. pakistani officials are detaining all three for questioning. >> so is sarah palin relocating? the former alaska governor may have just bought a home in scottsdale, arizona. arizona republic says there are indications that last week she bought an 8,000-square-foot home for about $1.7 million. it has six bedrooms, full basement, home theater, and a guard gate. an investment firm made the purchase in a deal apparently designed to cloak the buyer's identity. the botox mom won't be getting any money from abc. >> and for good reason. the network says it's refusing to pay because the woman admitted the story is not true. it's a hoax, the hollywood
reporter says abc was planning to pay her a $10,000 licensing fee for the photos but since her story about injecting her 8- year-old daughter with botox is a lie, the network is withholding that money and trying to find out how the interview got on the air in the first place. someone has a little explaining to do there. >> it was tough to believe. >> yeah. >> and why would you go unless you were getting paid like she was, why would you go on air and admit that you're doing that to your child? here's a show. the world didn't end over the weekend. >> the east bay preacher who predicted doomsday said he is flabbergasted -- >> flabbergasted! love it. >> 89-year-old harold camping predict the rapture would happen saturday. a reporter with the "chronicle" tracked him down yesterday alive and well like all of us. camping is looking for answer and will have more to say on this today. oh, and by the way, this is the second time he has been wrong about the end of the world. >> dent make a couple of bucks on this, too? >> about $100 million or so. yeah. a lot of people sent him money.

' lot of details don't add up so many questions remain about what happened in the past 24 hours. little baby ramy gallego is reportedly okay and in good condition. it began sunday morning at sunrise when her mother woke up at 6 a.m. to nurse her and she was gone. a family friend says ramy slept in the bassinette in the parent' room that the backyard door had been found open. police would not confirm any details but they launched a
massive search wit 100 people, k-9 units and helicopter. investigators say it's suspicious but no evidence of a family dispute or kidnapping. police questioned both parents at the police station but they weren't considered suspects at the time. and one question here is the timing of the whole calling of police. now, the baby was discovered missing at 6:00. cops didn't get the call until 6:20. so we hope to have that question answered later on today. >> kiet do in knightsen this morning, thank you. a parole officer helped lapd find a suspect in the attack on giants fan bryan stow. the agent noticed that the 31- year-old giovanni ramirez had some new tatoos covering one of of his old ones on his neck. his tip gave investigators the break they needed to arrest ramirez early yesterday morning. he is being held on a million dollars bail. police are still looking for two more people in the attack. we have traffic and weather. you guys are bright.
