5:00 am
en in on this news conference right now. it's in french with an english translation. >> who he was, the copilot. i have already given it to the victims' families. his name was andreas lubitz. -- loubiz. could a loss of consciousness have led to the altitude maneuver? no. the lever that you turn, you turn several times according to how much altitude you want to lose. it's a deliberately -- it can't be done automatically. so -- well, if his head was to hit it maybe it will move by a quarter of a turn but it won't do anything. it won't turn it 15 times. i would remind you, he went from 10 to 12,000 meters down to 2,000. so he went too much what we
5:01 am
call 380 to 80 if i'm not mistaken or 90. 380 which is 30,000 feet. to 6,000 feet. so we can conclude that in all circumstances, it's deliberate. at the moment, i consider it to be deliberate. first of all, refusing entry to the cockpit. second, maneuvering the lever for loss of altitude, it is 1,000 meters a minute as if he was landing. we're in the mountains, aren't we? so -- and there's no other airport which could receive an airbus 320 anywhere near. [ question and answer in french ] >> there was nobody else in the cockpit when the captain went out? >> no. the second black box has to do
5:02 am
with all recordings dealing with the flight, pressure, temperature, and so on, parameters. this will be added information and it may allow to us know that there was no other cause involved. >> having got this information a bit late during the night, yes, that's why i'm a bit angry about it. we're going to -- well my principle, when i'm dealing with a difficult investigation like this one, i focus on the investigation itself. we can subsequently see if there were any leaks. it's not the leaks which interest me. what interests me is to know the causes of this accident. there were 500 gendarmes who were active on this. the asa, the transport gendarmesry were controlling the security of this sight
5:03 am
which is extremely difficult to access only by cable from a helicopter and it's difficult because each of the investigators has to be on the site with rock climbing shoe gear because the ground is -- tends to disintegrate. it's a very difficult disaster area. >> i'm not in the head of the copilot. i can't answer your question. [ questions are inaudible ] >> i'm simply -- well, i believe we have a duty to be transparent as the transport ministers just said. and those families which were -- receiving -- to try to understand what's going on an subsequently to go and reflect at seyne-les-alpes and at the
5:04 am
place where in three languages french, german and spanish, was set up yesterday. i think there was a duty to be transparent and i wanted to do it because i believe that the victims deserve the public prosecutor giving them explanation on what has been going on to date. >> the families have been informed with respect to all the information i have given you. it's the same. [ inaudible ] >> how did they react? they asked many questions on international regulations, on was it normal for the captain to leave the cockpit? well, they asked many questions. what legal consequences might
5:05 am
there be for the airline? well, i'm not at that stage. >> and again, we are listening in on a news conference happening right now in france talking about that plane crash. investigators now believe that crash -- that plane was deliberately crashed. they said that they looked at numerous things inside the plane. one was that the plane dropped from 13,000 feet to 6,000 feet in a short amount of time as if it was going to land. but there was no close airport nearby. so that's why they believe it was deliberate. there was also a lever that had been maneuvered for that loss of altitude. again, they believe that the pilot inside the copilot who has been identified as andreas loubiz deliberately could have possibly deliberately crashed this plane. now, the cockpit voice recorder indicates that one of the pilots left the cockpit before
5:06 am
the plane's descent and couldn't get back n he started banging on the cockpit door to smash it down. 150 people died in the crash including three americans and we are going to follow this story all morning. we'll have a live report from the crash site in our next half- hour. it is 5:06. we have been telling you for two days now about the search for a vallejo woman whose boyfriend said she was kidnapped and was being held for ransom. it was all a hoax. an elaborate hoax. anne makovec is at vallejo police headquarters where police say she and her boyfriend made it all up. anne, good morning. >> reporter: there are still a lot more questions than answers this morning. and now there could be criminal charges because of all of this. denise huskins' live-in boyfriend called police on monday to report she was kidnapped from their home in vallejo on mare island. yesterday she turned up alive and well in huntington beac
5:07 am
[ inaudible recording ] >> reporter: that was part of the audio recording to prove she was alive during this supposed abduction as they demanded their $8,500 ransom n all, 40 detectives on the local, state and federal levels were working for three days to find her. >> that is a tremendous amount of resources that, in my opinion, was wasted. i can sit here and apologize for all of us [ indiscernible ] with information but in the grand scheme of things, mr. quinn and miss huskins have plundered valuable resources away from our community while instilling fear amongst our community members so if anything it is mr. quinn and miss huskins who owes this community an apology. >> reporter: mr. quinn that he is referring to is the boyfriend. huskins has since retained a lawyer and we are waiting to hear what if any charges could be filed against her or that
5:08 am
boyfriend aaron quinn who is the person who originally called police to report. this live in vallejo, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> thank you for that, anne. 5:08. how about a little traffic and weather? and roberta, today is going to be a scorcher, i guess, right? >> yesterday we began the warming trend between 5 to 10 degrees warmer than on tuesday and today we are anticipating near or record warmth. it's live it's our kpix 5 weather camera looking out at the clear skies over the bay bridge. temperatures into the 40s across many locations in the north bay. otherwise, we are into the 50s from the tri-valley through oakland concord and also to the south across the santa clara valley. average high temperatures this time of the year 64 in oakland, instead 80 there. low 80s in union city. across the bay 82 in los altos. 60s and 70s across the beaches today. now with the sunshine a slight breeze out of the northwest up to 85 in danville, 87 degrees in blackhawk, 60s, 70s and 80s common in the north bay. and here we go to lake county with highs today in the mid-
5:09 am
80s. the seven-day forecast still straight ahead. >> i spoke too soon about mass transit. as soon as we put up the bart map showing everything is on time. a five- to ten-minute delay right now out of the pleasant hill station in the sfo direction. it's due to an equipment problem. so we still don't have an estimated time when they will clear this but if you are trying to catch a flight to sfo we have to hop out of town and make sure you know about that 10-minute delay for bart riders. a live look at the peninsula southbound one looks okay now. there was a stall partially blocking the on-ramp southbound 101 to westbound 102. everything is great crossing the san mateo bridge. that's "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. there is a growing memorial outside the san jose police department to remember officer michael johnson. the flowers honor the man killed in the line of duty on monday. officer johnson was a native of san jose, a graduate of gunderson high school, he
5:10 am
joined the force in 2001. officer johnson was 38. he is survived by his wife nicole and other family members. yesterday, hundreds of people lined the streets of san jose to pay their respects as his casket was moved from the santa clara coroner's office to a funeral home in los gatos. they included firefighters who gathered on overpasses and stood on fire trucks to salute him. kiet do is at the san jose police department this morning with more. kiet. >> reporter: good morning. just a sad heartbreaking scene out here at police headquarters in downtown san jose. you see this mass of flowers and candles and children's drawings taped to the wall here. from talking with family and neighbors at the scene we are getting a better sense of how it played out yesterday. sources say a 30-.30-caliber rifle was found next to the suspect's body probably used to kill officer johnson. the responding officers knew the suspect might be armed so they began taking out their assault rifles as well but the top floor balcony gave scott
5:11 am
dunham an advantage over johnson standing behind a patrol car 100 feet away. several neighbors say the suspect dunham was friendly, showed no signs of violence and police say they have not been to his home or had recent run- ins with him. but his family says they knew he needed help. >> you can't force it down somebody's throat to get help. >> reporter: officers blasted a hole through the neighbor's wall to get to the suspect. that's when they found the suspect dead on the balcony. one of the initial responding officers had shot and killed him. and police sources also tell us that the suspect was likely scoping out additional targets and likely would have taken more shots if given chance. live in downtown san jose kiet do, kpix 5. >> flags across san jose are at half-staff now. flags have also been lowered at santa clara county government buildings. in sacramento governor brown has ordered the state capital flags to be flown at half- staff. and we have continuing coverage on air and at

most employees will return to work today at tesoro refinery in martinez. union workers have finally ratified a contract ending a strike that lasted more than 7 weeks. the refinery has been shut down since the work stoppage began. that could help lower gas prices which had already been on the decline. here are the current averages for a gallon of regular unleaded: >> get it below $3 a gallon i would be happy with that. liz has the "kcbs traffic." >> we are doing okay. we had some earlier incidents and a lot of those are cleared. a few hiccups though. first to the richmond/san rafael bridge, everything is so far okay on the approach.
5:16 am
no major delays. a few cars slowing down a bit if the cash lanes but on the western base of the richmond/san rafael bridge we have that closure still at the francisco boulevard east between graining and 580 due to a crash that happened late last night. that closure is still in effect. all green coming up 101 into morgan hill. as you can see it's really all clear through downtown san jose no big issues on the guadalupe parkway, 280 heading into cupertino. westbound 580 probably one of our slowest drive times out the door. you can see within the last 10 minutes or so those red sensors started popping up. hasn't affected the drive time but that will probably change. 17 minutes from the altamont pass and 680. a quick look at highway 4 where we are seeing slowdowns as well between hillcrest and "a" street. that's your latest "kcbs drive to work." we are heating up. here's roberta gonzales with those. good morning to george hughes, one of our weather watcher. he is checking in with us this morning and so far he is

5:18 am
you're looking at 85 degrees in san jose. 86, 87, further south towards morgan hill and gilroy where we anticipate some record heat. also that should be a record across the santa clara valley. 70s and 80s to the north. northwest winds at 5. east of the bay to the mid- and high 80s. 87 degrees pretty much your outside number today. but some backyards could report according to our weather watchers 88, 89 degrees approaching 90 degrees. there you have the dry conditions on friday, as well. cooler over the weekend but still well above average. hey, what's your weekend plans? perhaps you're going to be participating in the rock and roll half marathon? takes place this sunday in san francisco. ideal conditions a little fog in the morning, temperatures start time around 60 degrees. perfect for running. >> perfect. and keep hydrated, right? you always say that. >> hydrate, hydrate, hydrate no matter the temperatures. a little bit of water one, gatorade, water, gatorade. remember that bear that was

5:37 am
people across the country are paying tribute today to fallen san jose police officer michael johnson. he was shot and killed on tuesday while responding to a call about a suicidal man at a "senter road" condo. yesterday there was a procession as officer johnson's casket was moved from the santa clara county coroner's office to a funeral home in los gatos. hundreds of people lined the streets along the route including firefighters who gathered on overpasses stood on fire trucks to salute officer johnson. flags across the city are at half-staff and lowered at the santa clara government buildings. in sacramento, governor brown has ordered the state capital flags to be flown at half- staff. he was a native of san jose graduate of gunderson high school joined the force in 2001. officer johnson was 38. he is survived by his wife nicole and other family members. kiet do has more now.
5:38 am
he is at sjpd headquarters. >> reporter: good morning. a somber scene here at san jose police headquarters. as you can see here this memorial continues to grow. there's a mass of candles and flowers and children paintings and drawings taped to the wall here. a heartbreaking scene. more details are coming out about that ambush itself. we have got police sources that tell us that a 30 .30-caliber rifle was found next to the suspect's boat. it was likely the one used to kill officer michael johnson. responding officers knew the suspects scott dunham might be armed so they began taking out their assault rifles, as well. but the top floor balcony gave the suspect an advantage over officer johnson who is standing behind a patrol car 100 feet away. several neighbors say the suspect was friendly no signs of violence and police haven't been to his home or had previous run-ins recently. his family says they knew he needed help. >> you can't force it down somebody's throat to get help. >> what we have learned is that the courageous work of officers there in the scene may well
5:39 am
have saved other lives. >> reporter: and that was mayor sam liccardo echoing the sentiment that we heard from a lot of police officers saying that had that suspect not been stopped, he likely would have taken more shots. we're live in downtown san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> we have continuing coverage on air and you can always go to today the conflict in yemen is escalating. today saudi arabia carried out air strikes bombing shiite rebels. the rebels have taken over much of yemen and yemen's sunni president has fled the country. the white house says the u.s. is providing logistical and intelligence support. the saudis are also deploying 150,000 ground troops. 5:39 now. a state judge has allowed a lawsuit to go forward that seeks to throw out prop b. that's the measure san francisco voters approved just last year requiring developers to give voter approval for any project on land that exceeds
5:40 am
height limits. the judge dismissed one of the state's claims but allowed portions of the lawsuit to proceed. with markets 1% at all-time highs many people may not have cashed in on the good fortune. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us. why are we such lousy investors, jill? >> reporter: you know, emotions can really lead us astray. we fall prey to fear, greed, doubt, even regret because investors are not inherently rational when it comes to managing their money. you know what? we have significantly underperformed the s&p 500. not just by a little bit. by 4.2 percentage points per year from 1994 to 2013. the reason is easy. you know what what happens? markets are soaring you feel great. when they're plunging you feel horrible and you bail out. one way that you can actually avoid doing this is to stick to your game plan. if you can't, don't worry you
5:41 am
can get a qualified financial planner to help you and to learn how you can stop being a lousy investor and the 6 simple stems to take better care of your money go to >> that's what we were going to ask. how can we avoid being lousy investors? >> yeah. well, now, this is a game plan that you got to stick to. and i honestly have to say that as much as i'd like to say that all the research in the world and how informed you are, it can all be wonderful but if you can't stop yourself from shooting yourself in the foot, then you have to get help. >> thank you, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. coming up, some students and teachers in san jose will spend time outside the classroom today to learn about the late civil rights leader cesar chavez. kids from the union school district will go from doors sa elementary school school to the mexican-american plaza at 8:30

5:43 am
5:44 am
tornadoes touched down yesterday in oklahoma. severe weather went through the midwest. we did have one tornado touch about 4 miles just outside of moore oakland. the scene of a devastating tornado just 2.5 years ago killing 24 people.
5:45 am
today sunny skies, calm conditions and 62 degrees. highs today in the 70s and 80s. today the state assembly is expected to vote on the governor's drought plan. it's because of parched ground and depleted reservoirs like you see in these pictures. the money will provide relief from dry conditions and expediate funding for local water projects. central valley farmers are selling water to other farmers. some annual crops can survive a year without water but others like almond orchards and vineyards cannot so water transactions are common in parts of the san jaoaquin valley. and the prices tend to be reasonable. most farmers want to keep neighbors in business. distracted driving is the biggest reason teenagers get into car crashes. aaa says distracted driving causes 58% of all accidents
5:46 am
involving teenagers. that's 4 times what the government estimated. the study looked at video shot inside teenagers' cars to figure out what happened. the biggest problem, teenagers looking at cell phones or sending text messages. >> think we can throw in sleep deprived when we drive too. >> keep the phone in the back seat. >> exactly. liz, how we doing on the roadways? >> we were doing okay and then we saw all this slow traffic coming into san jose. i just checked the chp reports and there is unfortunately an accident causing all those backups so the crash is in the northbound lanes of 101 approaching oakland road. and you can see what i'm talking about. 14 miles per hour. there must be at least one lane blocked. again this accident was just reported in the last few minutes. we have a boating neck from the 280/680 interchange and it's slow before that. everything looks good across the golden gate bridge. we saw the zipper crews earlier. no problems out every sausalit
5:47 am
