texas, it is expected that the judge will start to speed up their case. we also reach out to the department of justice and have yet to hear back from them. >> all right, mireya, thank you. we're getting a look inside the remote new mexico compound where officials say 11 children were found living in squalor. the conditions were horrible. the property is littered with shell casings, trash. authorities arrested five a dults last week on child abuse charges. jericka duncan joins us with new information from family members of the main suspect. jericka, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle. prosecutors say the children, ranging in age from 1 to 15, were malnourished, living without electricity or plumbing. authorities say they also found the body of a child. and the estranged wife of the man accused of leading this compound is now speaking out. >> my heart is going away from me. >> reporter: she told atlanta station wsb she believes the remains of a young boy found at a new mexico compound may be her

7:12 am
with the latest. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. only congress can create a new military service and as yet there is no estimate for how much the space force would cost. but according to vice president pence, it could happen by 2020. >> today, other nations are seeking to disrupt our space-based systems and challenge american supremacy in space as never before. >> reporter: like the army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard, the new space force would prepare for war. a war in space against countries like russia and china. the u.s. military depends on some 140 satellites including this quarter billion dollar gps satellite for everything from communications to targeting the enemy. but air force secretary heather wilson says many of those satellites were built at a time when there was no threat of attack. >> we built the glass houses before the invention of stones. >> reporter: the threat to u.s. satellites has been increasing since 2007 when china used a
7:13 am
ground-based anti-satellite weapon to shoot down one of its own weather satellites 530 miles above the earth. general jay raymond showed "60 minutes" the results. >> this is about 3,000 pieces of debris just from that one event. >> reporter: that came from one collision? >> just one collision. >> reporter: defense secretary james mattis was originally opposed to the space force idea. writing in a 2017 letter it would add layers of bureaucracy. but his position seems to be changing. >> we are in complete alignment with the president's concern about protecting our assets in space. >> reporter: as the commander in chief continues to push the idea. >> space force. people love that. >> reporter: there are currently about 18,000 men and women in uniform involved in space operations. although president trump says the space force would be
7:14 am
separate and equal to the other branches, it would be, by far, the smallest of the military services. vlad. >> all right, david martin, thank you very much. puerto rico is acknowledging for the first time that the death toll from hurricane maria is likely more than 22 times higher than the u.s. territory's previous estimate. officials now say more than 1400 deaths are blamed on the catastrophic storm. the last official death count was 64. david begnaud is back in puerto rico. >> reporter: i can tell you from spending the last many months on the island doing reports here, it is so important to the people of puerto rico to get a final number and this is not final but it is important. the figure comes from the government's own mortality data that journalists had to sue to get. even when the numbers were released, the government didn't make an official acknowledgement until they just sent this report to congress asking for money. it had been nearly ms since hurne maria devas
7:15 am
ear. in a report to congress requesting $139 billion in aid money, the government of puerto rico acknowledged in the four months following the hurricane, 1,427 more people died than normal compared to the previous four years. >> david, we've always said the amount was higher. >> reporter: this is puerto rico's secretary of public safety. we never heard you come out and say 1,427 until you put this report to congress. >> but it was never -- maybe it's an issue of perception maybe, but it was never meant to be secret. it wasn't secret. this is what the report said. >> reporter: a study done by harvard university estimated the death toll to be between 800 and 8,000. a report out last week conducted by penn state university put the number as high as 1,139. the puerto rico government is waiting on a report it
7:16 am
commissioned from george washington university. ricardo rosio is the governor. you paid for the study. you said you didn't have the right protocol to get the right death toll. nobody believes 64. even you don't believe it. it's not about believing it. >> people say it's the official count. it's just really the count -- >> reporter: it's where the count stopped? >> it's where the count stopped when we realized it wasn't appropriate. >> reporter: my sources are telling me that the george washington university study should be released by the end of the month. gayle, before we toss it back, we're at the forensic sciences center. we've talked about a backlog of bodies. there are nearly 300 awaiting autopsy. some are being stored in those trailers. the u.s. government is sending pathologists to help process the backl backlog. >> in the meantime, the pain continues there. thank you very much, david begnaud in puerto rico. the horrific air strike that hit a school bus filled with children in yemen is drawing
