6:02 pm
>> reporter: bobby davis was a seventh grader helping out around the syracuse basketball court when he claims the abuse began. now 39, he recorded the october 2002 phone call with laurie fine out of desperation. espn says a voice experts confirms the voice matches laurie fine's. >> i know everything that went on, you know. i know everything that went on with him. bernie has issues, maybe that he's not aware of, but he has issues. and you trusted somebody you shouldn't have trusted. >> reporter: the accuser made the tape, he says, because he needed proof his allegations of molestation would be taken seriously. on the tape, bobby davis says he frequently slept over in the basement of the fine home. davis and the woman discuss the type of abuse he was subjected to at the hands of the coach. >> what did he want you to do? you can be honest with me.
6:03 pm
>> i mean, he's like -- but at first he would grab me and start, you know touching me. >> reporter: this month davis's step brother leveled similar accusations. and today a 23-year-old from maine sworn a deposition with police that fine abuszed him. >> do you think i'm the only one that he's ever done that to? >> no, i think there might have been others. >> reporter: like joe paterno, the public will demand to know if jim boeheim knew anything and when. boeheim has already called the accuser a liar, after bobby davis recently suggested the coach knew about his long-time assistant and young boys. on the tape, the woman identified as the coach's wife predicts that one day it would become public. >> i said to him -- you know, bobby and i talked, and i know some things about you that if you keep pushing, are going to be let out. >> he doesn't think he can be touched. >> no -- he thinks that, i think, he thinks he's above the law. >> reporter: two of bernie fine's attorneys have not returned multiple calls for more than a week, just ten days ago,
6:04 pm
fine was put on administrative leave by syracuse after 35 yea s s as a coach there. >> t.j., thank you. let's bring in espn's mark schwartz, who broke the story of that phone call. and a lot of people will want to know, did this accuser go to authorities at syracuse university with theses years ag? >> reporter: david, he did call in 2002 and spoke for about five minutes with the syracuse police detective who heard his story, davis says that detective doug fox told him the statute of limb taxs had come and gone with him. three years later in 2005, syracuse university did its own investigation of bernie fine. they did that with their own lawyers. bobby davis was asked to produce witnesses. one of the witnesses items me was laurie fine, bernie's wife. and at the time, she told the panel that he's a liar, she knows nothing and it's a joke. >> so, there would seem to be a
6:05 pm
history here. we do know the femds and the syracuse d.a. are investigating. are we expected to hear any more from coach boeheim? >> reporter: earlier today, there was a release from the university saying that coach boeheim would have nothing more to say about the matter. there is chatter he may be releasing a statement later in the evening. >> all right, mark schwartz, thank you so much. we turn to the economy now, and to record numbers coming in from the holiday weekend. shoppers spending $52.4 billion in stores and online since thanksgiving day. that's up more than 16 % from the $45 billion a year ago. so, what kind of deals drove the buying and is it an indicator of things to come? here's abc's bazi kanani tonight. >> reporter: this season of giving is starting off with record spending. >> it felt like we had a little bit more room to buy more gifts this season. >> what i call frugal fatigue. >> reporter: shoppers clamored for black friday bargains. they took advantage of early sales, spending nearly $11.4
6:06 pm
billion on friday alone. 226 million people shopped in stores and online over the weekend, up from 212 million last year. and many of those who braved the crazed crowds weren't even shopping for others. >> 44% of consumers told us that they've only really bought for themselves so far. >> reporter: that leaves lots of stockings still to stuff. >> reporter: as the consumer spends and the momentum coming out of holiday very well will likely and usually does create growth the following year, as well. >> reporter: the next big shopping rush is expected tomorrow on what's called cyber monday. already this weekend, more than a third of all sales were made online and analysts say that's an indication of much more to come. david? >> all right, bazi, thank you. i want to bring in wtrish regan. and you were saying the numbers will make a good headline. but there's a large unknown out there. >> reporter: you're right, david. will this shopping continue throughout the rest of the
6:07 pm
holiday season? i mean, these numbers were great. it showed consumers had a lot of pent up demand. but a lot of that was because there were huge discounts. as we move forward over the next several weeks, will they continue to spend? if they do, it's great news for the economy. but if they don't, this is a one-hit wonder. >> we'll be watching that. and watching the markets tomorrow morning. we talked about the numbers last week. the worst thanksgiving week since 1942. down 564 points. what is the market concerned about right now? >> reporter: europe, really being held hostage by any bit of news that comes out of there. we were concerned about greece, now everyone is concerned about italy and will italy be able to make its debt payments? italy says it can be there's no confidence out there investors don't believe it and that's why it's affecting things here at home. >> all right, trish, thank you. we're going to move to the millimeters of holiday travelers returning home. and this is the busiest travel dale of the year. take a look at this live tracker tonight, the planes in the skies
6:08 pm
over this country right now. always something to see there. so many people on their way home, with full stomachs, right? let's bring in abc meteorologist ginger zee. we watched you on "gma" this morning, you talked about this system most concerning to you. where is it right now? >> reporter: it's stretching from eastern michigan, this thing hasn't moved much today. it's going northerly instead of easterly. heavy rain and wind could be a problem. atlanta, i think, is the next hub that could see some issues. so, we wanted to share where we anticipate flight delays. you can see the red planes, those are problem spots. >> and you are following the highways tonight? >> reporter: highways, i'm looking at twitter and facebook fields, people are saying parking lot on i-80 east of chicago. also through birmingham. i-65 is going to be a disaster due to this ginger zee, great tu on board. and tonight, a surprising
6:09 pm
endorsement from an influential new hampshire newspaper. let's bring in our senior washington editor rick klein tonight. rick, great to have you with us. i know you read this first thing this morning. here is the quote from the "union leader." we would rather back someone with whom we may sometimes disagree than one who items us what he theirs he want to hear. how does mitt romney receive this? >> reporter: david, this is a gut shot aimed right at mitt romney and it could be what keeps newt gingrich in the top tier to stay. it's not that one newspaper in new hampshire picks presidents. "the union leader" has a spotty record on that front. but this validates the things gingrich has been doing to vault himself into contention. no one is better positioned to be the main alternative to romney than gingrich. >> movement in iowa, a group meeting right now? >> reporter: that's right. there's a group trying to strategize who isn't mitt romney. this opens the door for another candidate to waltz through.
6:10 pm
romney wants to win early and afternoon but if voters want to go behind a single candidate, this fight could last awhile. >> rick klein, thank you. and we turn overseas this evening, and to escalating tension between the u.s. and its troubled ally, pakistan. tonight, nato is ordering an investigation into the deaths of pakistani soldiers in a nato air assault. pakistan claimed it was unprovoked but today, new questions about what really happened. about who shot first. abc's david kerley is in washington. >> reporter: pakistani anger poured onto the streets today. the death of 24 soldiers, a devastatingly painful blow. those men were buried today, another insult to sack pan's psyche. >> the relationship now, i believe, has hit a new low. it appears now to be as close as we've seen to a real break in relations. >> reporter: it was 2:00 saturday morning, as u.s. special forces and afghan commandos were set to raid a
6:11 pm
taliban camp around the corner. suddenly, they say they came under fire. afghan sources tell abc news an air strike was called in, which hit the pakistan border post. this isn't the first time insurgent fire has come from a spot from close to a pack stab border post. the number two american general recently charged that some pakistani soldiers are helping the taliban. >> the collaboration is in some cases local collaboration with the insurgents. >> reporter: in retaliation for this latest incident, pakistan closed two border crossings, which the u.s. uses to resupply troops in afghanistan. and demanded that the u.s. vacate an air base, which is sometimes used to service cia drones. but with the killing of osama bin laden on pakistani soil and now this, the relationship between the two countries is close to rupturing. >> we need pakistan because we are concerned about ultimately the disposition of its nuclear weapons. we need it in order to have any chance of a success in afghanistan.
6:12 pm
>> reporter: the issue is so againstive. abc news has learned that the head of cent-com, in control of that area, tomorrow, he will order an investigation independent of nato's effort. and here at the white house, officials are only telling us that the president continues to monitor the situation. david? >> david kerley at the white house tonight, thank you. mean wheel, overseas, tens of thousands of protesters remain camped out in tahrir square. t and today, those three american college students held in a cairo jail after being accused of throwing molotov cocktails at egyptian security forces are back home in the u.s. after an experience they say they thought they wouldn't survi survive. >> and in the first night, we were punched in the face a number of times. they held a bottle of gasoline to my mouth and asked -- and were motioning as though they were going to make me drink it.
6:13 pm
and they told us they were going to shoot us if we moved as we were in the dark with our hands cuffed behind our backs. >> derek sweeney talking about his moments in that jail. one more note from overseas. the english speaking world all day today and even here in the u.s. noticing something different in the catholic church. the mass sounding a little different. a new translation from the mass. it's the largest shakeup of the service since the dramatic changes the vatican made back in the 1960s. and it moves it back in a more traditional direction, as the church gets closer to the christmas holiday. one more note as we approach this holiday season. the average american spends $700 on christmas. 700. which got us wondering here, how little of that would you need to spend on gifts made in america to actually create a job? this week here, the made in america team is back where it all began with that first family we met nearly a year ago and a simple equation. how about just one of your gifts made in america, as we ask, are
