7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking news as we come on the air. former patriot aaron hernandez found dead in his jail cell this morning while serving a sentence for murder. the new details coming in right now. breaking overnight, president trump's close call. the democrat emerges on top of that special election in georgia after the president's big endorsement of his republican opponents. the crucial seat in congress heads for a runoff. overseas the trump administration talking tough to north korea but facing new questions about that aircraft carrier. they said it was heading to the region. it wasn't. calls growing louder for bill o'reilly to be fired. [ chanting ] >> as a new accuser comes forward saying she was a victim of sexual and racial harassment. new reports the network may part
7:01 am
ways with o'reilly. will he ever return? who's the most beautiful person in the world? the star taking the coveted "people" magazine title for the fifth time. who is winning over the globe with her smile and that laugh. the big reveal first right here on "gma." and it's great to have michael strahan back with us. a lot of breaking news. >> right to that breaking news. aaron hernandez found dead in his jail cell just a few hours ago. the former new england patriot star convicted of murder apparently hanged himself on the same day the patriots are headed to the white house. pierre thomas starts us off with all the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. correction officers found him around 3:05:00 a.m. and hanged from a bed sheet. attempted to block his door so
7:02 am
no one could get in. officials tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead at 4: 07 this morning. no official warning of whether there was a suicide note. he was serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of his friend. last week he stood trial for the murders of two other men and found not guilty and when the jury read the verdict he wiped away tears. he was a tight end with the new england patriots. his coach said it was just one word to describe hernandez's situation. tragedy. robin. >> oh, never more so true than that. pierre, thank you. there are a lot of other important stories we're following. the results of georgia's special election headed for a runoff and democrats battling to take a seat from the gop and show they have momentum going into 2018 and vice president pence addressed troops overnight.
7:03 am
warned north korea the u.s. will have an overwhelming response to any attack. we'll have much more on that in a moment. first let's start with the high-stakes special election in georgia and cecilia vega has that for us. >> reporter: good morning. this race is being waged more than 600 miles away from the white house. but it is being called a referendum on president trump. this is the 30-year-old political rookie who democrats hoped would deliver a knockout punch to president trump. a special election to fill a vacant congressional seat in a solidly republican district and democrat jon ossoff, the former congressional staffer who has never held elected office falling just short of the 50% of votes needed to win the whole thing. he's now headed to a june runoff against karen handel. >> for those who want to stick around, stick around. it will go on for a little bit longer. >> reporter: the president taking credit for the outcome before the race was even called tweeting, despite major outside
7:04 am
money, fake media support and 11 republican candidates, big "r" win with the runoff in georgia. glad to be of help. that help he's referring to a robo call in the lead-up to the election, president trump hoping to sway voters. >> hello. this is president donald trump. liberal democrats from outside of georgia are spending millions and millions of dollars trying to take your republican congressional seat away from you. >> reporter: democrats poured millions into the race saying it's a sign of an anti-trump movement that could help them take back the house and they are now looking to another showdown. they certainly are and the white house is pushing back on calling this race a referendum on the president. but there is no way around it. this once republican stronghold formerly held by newt gingrich is now competitive and democrats feel they have a strong chance. >> cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk more about it with john avlon. the president claiming some measure of victory.
7:05 am
he can't take comfort, 46% going to the democrat. >> this is a heavily republican district. newt gingrich's district back in the day. it won by 2-1 margins. the fact this was a squeaker narrowly beating that 50% margin is not a good sign. in this republican district the trump brand isn't selling here. >> it turns out the republican vote was splintered but the republican voter -- i mean candidates who were closest to donald trump did the worst. >> that's the really fascinating thing an establishment republican karen handel came out on top and will face ossoff in the runoff. the ones who hugged donald trump tightest, tea party activists who had the endorsements of far right celebrities did terribly and couldn't get outside the margin of error. that's a bad sign. >> now republicans have two months to regroup. the vote will be in june, ossoff is now going to face a lot of scrutiny. he was able to make this whole runoff about the first race
7:06 am
about donald trump. this is going to be about him, as well. he doesn't even live in the district. >> that's right. this will be a tough way for democrats to win. look, the republicans will consolidate around karen handel. she's been the former secretary of state in georgia but well known in the district. uphill climb and the district is overwhelmingly slotted to be republican so democrats had an emotional victory but hard to translate. >> on another front "usa today" reporting that one of the so-called d.r.e.a.m.ers, undocumented immigrants brought here has been deported despite president trump's message earlier in the year that he would protect them. this created some controversy. >> a lot. this does seem to contradict some of the rhetoric. it happened some months ago. representative steve king, a hawk on immigration tweeting out a toast, a beer to the border patrol agents who deported him so a sign of more controversies to come. >> general john kelly lashing out now against critics who say his deportation forces have gone
7:07 am
too far saying he's enforcing them into too strict a fashion. >> kelly gave a strong speech and there's tension between the two on issue of immigration and marijuana but kelly came out very hawkish yesterday criticizing folks in congress criticizing the border patrol saying shut up if you're not going to change the laws. fascinating stuff by kelly. >> john avlon, thanks very much. to robin. now to that health concern for former president george h.w. bush. he is hospitalized in houston this morning after suffering from pneumonia. bush who is 92 was last hospitalized with pneumonia for two weeks in january. our chief white house correspondent jon karl has the latest on the president's condition. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the former president remains at houston methodist hospital this morning. he was admitted on friday with a persistent cough at the hospital doctors discovered he had a mild case of pneumonia. his spokesperson said he remains in good spirits this morning. this is as you remember the second hospital scare this year.
7:08 am
for the former president in january, he was admitted. also with pneumonia and spent two weeks in a hospital. some of that time with his wife, former first lady barbara bush, the bushes missed the presidential inauguration but they did make it to the super bowl participating in the official coin toss there eventually getting out to the 50 yard line and last week he received a visit from bill clinton. >> who gave him those socks. any word on when he could be discharged? >> reporter: no word. he remains in the hospital for further observation and while he's doing that he's regaining his strength and getting much needed rest but no word on when he's coming home. >> all right, jon, thanks. >> thank you. we move on to that show of force with north korea. it wasn't exactly what it seemed. reports last week that president trump was sending an aircraft carrier towards north korea to confront the nuclear threat.
7:09 am
>> we are sending an armada, very powerful. >> when you see a carrier group steaming into an area like that, the forward presence of that is clearly through almost every instance a huge deterrent. >> in fact, that carrier group was thousands of miles away heading in a different direction so let's dig in with what was going on with steve ganyard, former state department official. how do you explain a miscue like this? >> clearly, george, the reality was not matching up with the rhetoric. on one hand it's good they stayed in the exercise with the australians, our most important partner in the pacific but mistakes happen when you don't have your full team on the playing field. 500 positions are still open. secretary mattis isn't getting much help. >> yeah, in fact, the navy had put out the proper information several days ago. it just wasn't corrected at higher levels but i guess the
7:10 am
bigger question how much does this damage the credibility of the united states with the threats it's making gentleman. >> the so-called armada is on its way and will get there. what the administration is clearly signaling, absent some sort of mistake by kim jong-un, the next steps will be economic so instead of looking at the department of defense i think we need to look down the treat at the department of treasury for the next steps. >> that would be coming from the secretary of treasury. hearing tough rhetoric from the vice president mike pence overnight saying we will respond to any provocation with overwhelming force. >> that's right but this is the same consistent message that american presidents have been giving since 1953 letting kim jong-un and his family know any steps across the dmz will result in the annihilation of north korea. >> we learned yesterday as well that u.s. fighters were forced to intercept russian jets who were patrolling off the alaskan coast? >> yeah, george, i think the fact that is news is the news.
7:11 am
this was a daily occurrence during the cold war. these are not terribly impressive airplanes. they're older than i am which is saying something so the fact that the russians are doing this and doing it so infrequently really is the story. >> you say you talk about this, something that happened quite regularly during the cold war and comes against the backdrop of russian officials saying we have the worst relations between the two since the cold war. >> exactly. the fact this is all they can muster in terms of testing us tells us where their military is and how far it's degraded since the days of the soviet union. >> we'll move on to that deadly shooting spree in california. a suspect in custody accused of killing three white men because of their race. abc's kayna whitworth is on the scene for us there in fresno with details. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: robin, good morning. police are saying this was a hate crime solely based on race.
7:12 am
they believe that kori muhammad wanted to kill as many white men as he could. before going to jail for a previous murder. >> this was the gunman that went on a deadly shooting spree in broad daylight. >> fresno. >> we're getting reports of multiple gunshots. >> reporter: kori ali muhammad firing 16 shots allegedly in less than 2 minutes at 4 different locations killing three white men tuesday morning. >> we're going to need to get more units. >> we just got another call in of six shots fired. >> reporter: the 39-year-old first opened fire on a pg&e truck shooting and killing the passenger, 34-year-old zachary randall, married of father of two new employee with his first ridealong with the company and the suspect firing at but missing a nearby resident only to kill two more men before police apprehended him. >> he made spontaneous statements. i did it. i shot them.
7:13 am
>> reporter: two months ago he posted this video of a song to youtube. ♪ death and destruction murder and mayhem ♪ >> reporter: he yelled out ali akbar as he was seated in the back of the patrol car. they believe this shooting was a hate crime and not related to terrorism. >> based on the information we have been provided this is solely based on race. >> reporter: police say muhammad is also responsible for murdering another man last week. 25-year-old carl williams, a security guard at a nearby motel. muhammad allegedly telling police he wasn't going to jail for shooting a security guard and was going to try and kill as many people as possible. they have not located into a pile of clothes. they believe he used the same gun to shoot the security guard and two on that rampage. >> have they recovered the
7:14 am
murder weapon? >> robin, police still don't have the gun. they say muhammad threw it into a pile of clothes and at this point they have been unable to find it. they believe he used the same gun to kill the security guard and go on that rampage yesterday. >> details about the facebook killer who sparked a national manhunt. alex, the showdown unfolded after a quick thinking mcdonald's worker spotted the killer in the drive-through. >> reporter: that's right. the beginning of the end for steve stephens started at this mcdonald's when he pulled up to that drive-through window, an employee immediately knew it was him. this morning the 46-hour nationwide manhunt for the so-called facebook killer is over. steve stephens killing himself after a dramatic police chase. >> looks like there's one guy down. in the white car.
7:15 am
>> reporter: the woman at the center of his rampage is coming out of the shadows. >> can you say joy lane? >> reporter: the joy lane, the ex-girlfriend stephens says helped motivate his murder of 74-year-old robert godwin speaking exclusively to wjw. >> the hashtags joy lanes, i don't know if i know how to be joy lane anymore. i don't know how to pick up all the pieces of my world at the moment. >> reporter: she spoke to stephens the night before the murder. he told her he quit his job and was moving out of state. after seeing the horrific video, she tried calling him but he wouldn't answer. >> i've got a lot of negative comments. i've been told that i'm the one who should have died. he should have killed me. >> reporter: on the run since easter sunday he was finally cornered 100 miles from cleveland in erie, pennsylvania tuesday and police closing in on him at 11:10:00 a.m. and employees at this mcdonald's said he ordered 20 chicken mcnuggets and fries.
7:16 am
the worker recognized him. that worker immediately calling 911 while others stalled. >> basically just told him it was going to be a minute for his fries. he was nerved up. agitated and didn't want to wait, said he had to go. >> reporter: stephens takes off. within 30 seconds police in hot pursuit. the surveillance video capturing the chase before political ram his car bringing him to a stop. >> the vehicles surrounded the white ford focus at which time mr. stephens took his own life. >> reporter: and that mcdonald's employee besides recognizing his face also noticed the white car and noticed that it had ohio tags and knew he was right in front of her. >> such quick thinking by her. any word if that employee will receive the reward money? >> reporter: yeah, absolutely, quick thinking by her part there, robin. authorities say, you know, the distribution of those funds is a whole process. at this point they just don't
7:17 am
know who will get that money? a lot of people say she deserves that money. all right, alex, thanks very much. >> i believe she does. the dangerous flooding in texas. residents cleaning up after nearly a foot of rain fell damaging homes and businesses near my hometown of houston. now that system is heading north and ginger, you have been tracking it. >> southeast of houston, good to have you back, by the way. you can see not the images i wanted to bring you back to. they have been flooded not just outside the homes but inside looks just like this. this is such a mess. anyone who has had flooding knows it's not a one-day process but a long cleanup. now that is on the move dropping trees into homes in central tennessee. hail was falling through parts of kentucky and tennessee and for this afternoon and evening especially into the evening hours it's eastern iowa. des moines is in it and enhanced risk area. enough spin, what we call wind shear and happening with speed

growing wake of claims of sexual harassment, gathering outside fox headquarters tuesday. >> around this time i grab some vacation because it's spring -- >> reporter: fox's biggest star has been off the air for a week on a scheduled vacation, but now it seems he'll return to another accusation. attorney lisa bloom saying this former fox employee has called the company's anonymous tip line. >> i was sexually harassed by a fox employee. >> accusing o'reilly of sexual and racial misconduct in 2008. allegedly leering and grunting at the african-american woman when they were alone and calling her hot chocolate. >> the one key moment was when we were alone together on the elevator as i was leaving the elevator he said looking good there girl. >> reporter: insiders say his job may be on the line. "new york" magazine reporting while no final decision has been made the murdochs are leaning toward announcing o'reilly will not return to the air.
7:33 am
>> the murdochs are under intense pressure and assessing how much money he brings in versus how much creditability they're willing to lose with the public. >> reporter: o'reilly under fire since a "new york times" article reported the anchor and fox paid nearly $13 million in settlements over claims of inappropriate behavior including sexual harassment over the last 15 years. a former contributor also coming forward, claiming the host derailed her career after she shut down his advances. >> he got very hostile very quickly. >> reporter: o'reilly has denied the allegations saying he's being targeted because he is prominent and controversial. of the new accusation his attorney saying in a statement, there is an obviously orchestrated campaign by activists and lawyers to destroy mr. o'reilly. o'reilly's lawyer also telling abc news that they have evidence that far left organizations are trying to destroy o'reilly for political reasons, adding that the allegation from an anonymous
7:34 am
person about something that reportedly happened a decade ago should not be treated as fact. george? >> mara, thanks very much. let's bring in attorney lisa bloom who is representing the accuser, and dan abrams as well and, lisa, let me pick up where mara left off. that's the attorney for bill o'reilly that said it's outrageous that an allegation from an anonymous person about something that purportedly happened a decade ago is being treated as fact when there's an obvious orchestrated campaign to destroy mr. o'reilly and enrich themselves through publicity driven donations. your response. >> first mr. o'reilly says nobody ever calls into our hotline, so we took him up on it, and we called into the hotline. they said you can report anonymously if you want to. imagine if you're a low-level clerical worker going up against bill o'reilly who makes $18 million a year, one of the most powerful men in media and has the right to report anonymously that's what she did, and i support her in that. >> dan, the pressure building on fox right now.
7:35 am
they're losing advertisers and facing this merger. they want to buy another network in england and facing other possible legal actions in the united states. do they have a choice at this point? >> i would have told you a week ago that i thought bill o'reilly was going to survive. this new york times article are all things fox news knew about. the problem is the new allegations, anything that fox didn't know about, i think, are the reasons that are now being cited for possibly letting o'reilly go, and when you have someone like a conservative leader, matt drudge, tweeting out what sounds like an obituary for bill o'reilly, you know that he's in trouble. >> does that solve the problem? >> no, it doesn't solve the problem at fox news but it's a heck of a good start. i mean, this is a man accused over and over again of hurting women. of calling them on the phone and making sexually explicit comment, of propositioning women like my client wendy walsh and when she doesn't comply not giving her a promised job. this is about equality for women in the workplace.
7:36 am
either fox news is going to start accepting that that's the law or we'll continue coming forward with more and more women and more protests. >> how much farther will they have to go? >> fox have to go? >> to clean up the culture at fox to deal with this legal problem and pr problem. >> look, this is a major pr issue for them and there's a real question as to even if bill o'reilly is let go, i don't know that that ends the practical issues for fox. you have got many of the same leaders at fox who were there under roger ailes. i wouldn't be surprised if lisa has additional potential clients that are going to come forward. >> calls coming in? >> my phone is ringing off the hook and say to the murdochs we are not going to stop until bill o'reilly is fired. i'm representing all of the women for free and happy to take their calls and advise them of their rights and i have the fox news hotline on my speed dial now. >> lisa bloom, dan abrams, thanks very much. robin. okay, george. coming up in just two minutes,

explosive new look inside the 2016 election. it's called "shattered: inside hillary clinton's doomed campaign" and paints the picture of a presidential bid plagued by missed opportunities and missteps right from the start, and tom llamas spoke with the authors. >> the trump team says it was electricity, not electability that mattered most and this book goes inside the clinton campaign to figure out what prevented that spark for them. >> this is the night for donald trump. he is now going to be the 45th president of the united states. >> reporter: the headline that rocked the world and shocked so many. but the news shouldn't have taken the clinton campaign by surprise. just months before election day, a longtime clinton adviser drafted a memo telling the
7:40 am
campaign, donald trump could win and not to underestimate him in battleground states. >> this adviser says donald trump can win this election. fact, he says at the top of this memo, and then as the memo goes on, it says, i would add three or four points to every point you see to trump's numbers. >> reporter: that report part of the gripping new book "shattered: inside hillary clinton's doomed campaign." the book outlining even before clinton launched her 2016 campaign, she instructed her i.t. team to download top aides' e-mails from 2008 campaign trying to pinpoint which staffers leaked to media and track down infighting. then early on in 2016, while batting bernie sanders, in the primary, the authors claim she couldn't get a handle on the new wave sweeping american politics. >> there's this rise in populism. she's on a plane with one of her close aides and she's basically questioning what is happening in the country.
7:41 am
she doesn't quite understand it. >> reporter: the book also details how clinton herself created tension in her campaign by surrounding herself with rival aides inside and outside of the campaign, and some of those closest to her, like huma abedin, couldn't be honest with the democratic nominee. >> she had a problem telling hillary the truth in that she was a gatekeeper for others to get to hillary clinton. >> reporter: in their campaign autopsy, the writers found that unlike the trump campaign which ran primarily on gut instinct -- >> i just get the feeling we're going to win in a landslide. >> reporter: the clinton campaign relied heavily on voter data. in some key battleground states that data hurt more than it helped. even causing a rift between bill clinton and campaign manager robby mook. >> her team decided it would be more expensive to try to persuade people who didn't agree with her and spent more time on the people they thought they could turn out. >> reporter: but still clinton's
7:42 am
message wasn't resonating with certain voters. do you think donald trump beat hillary clinton or do you think hillary clinton beat herself? >> i think hillary clinton did so many things to damage her own campaign that she was not able to beat a flawed candidate in donald trump and a big part of that was not understanding what was going on in the electorate, the same thing donald trump and in the primary bernie sanders were able to tap into. >> reporter: and in the final chapters of the book, a play-by-play from election night how clinton apologized to president obama for losing and making the call to donald trump. >> she says those words she never thought she would have to say, congratulations, donald. >> again, right after that she called president obama and said i'm sorry. abc news had reached out to the clinton campaign manager, robby mook, we reached out to but did not hear back. the book has just come out and they have not read it but i it may overdramatized. >> seems like they are blaming the staff a lot. there was a lot of blame to go around.

7:46 am
indigestion and discomfort while eating we agreed it was best for him to seek treatment. he's already feeling better and is expected to make a full recovery. remember, simmons hasn't been seen in public for more than three years now and that viral podcast "finding richard simmons" delved into why and one former friend claiming he's being held in his hollywood hills home by his witchcraft wielding housekeeper. that is a complete load of beat according to that rep says simmons is just taking it easy and if he decides to come back he'll come back, by the way, tmz reporting that he has actually been out and about but in disguise, a hat and a cane. they say. >> wow. speaking of comeback, nick, he did just sign a new merchandising deal. what does this deal entail? >> reporter: he did and simmons watchers are getting giddy this could be the first glimmer of that comeback. he apparently just inked a deal that will rep him for merchandising and endorsements

8:16 am
>> both groups are using the same risk factor, age, cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking and then a calculated risk of a cardiac event over a ten-year period. so let me show you what i mean. >> okay. >> i have some people here who are helping me today. so basically, if you look at these criteria, you would be in the preventive service task force. maybe age between 40 and 75. you have a risk factor like high cholesterol and ten-year risk of a heart attack is over 10%. maybe you just have diabetes. but don't worry, you're going to make it. you might be under 40 years of age but have one risk factor and you might just have high cholesterol, these groups -- these people would be in the american heart association numbers. that's why they wound up with more people and they broadened their criteria. >> there are downsides and risks. what are those? >> risk versus benefits and take
8:17 am
into account cost when you talk about a medication. when you talk about risks of statins there's a low risk of muscle ache and increased risk of diabetes development in women but we have to be clear. this is something that has to be individualized patient to patient and we have to remember statins work in other ways than just lowering that number and other things other than lifestyle could raise it. >> there are other lifestyle -- not smoking. things like that. >> 100%. and 80% of heart disease, preventible by modifying risk factors. >> you're all going to make it, by the way. >> you're going to survive. >> thank you, jen. coming up, we know julia roberts made the cut. who else is on "people's" big list? the big reveal is next. come on back. 66 n back.
