6:01 am

6:03 am
and we haven't found anything at all that leads us one direction or another. that tells us this is, you know, a foul play incident or anything. >> investigators try tracking le's whereabouts using the cell phone towers. while oakland, union city and fremont came up as a possible location, again, police found nothing. le is a student at samuel merit university in san mateo. police say according to the friends and fellow students, they have no reason to believe she is the type to disappear without letting anyone know. police are asking anyone with information to contact the hayward police department. we're live in hayward, nick smith, abc7 news. >> thanks a lot. 6:03 now. this morning, some are saying the suspect in the beating of giants' fan bryan stow could have been caught sooner if someone had taken the time to enter critical information in the state's computerized parolee data base. "examiner" reports there was a picture of the suspect giovanni ramirez in the
6:04 am
system. details about the tear drop tattoo and the tattoos on his neck were never entered in the system. those details ultimately led a parole agent to identify ramirez as a suspect. ramirez was ultimately arrested by police eight days ago for the opening day attack on stow outside dodger stadium. police are still looking for a second suspect and woman who drove them from the scene on the night of the attack. stow is from the santa cruz area and remains in san francisco general hospital. in critical condition. stow's family's website states that blood clots have formed in stow's legs and doctors are very slowly weaning him off his fourth seizure medication. the family expects stow to be off that medication sometime this week. state regulators are considering a proposal by pg&e and other utilities to weaken rules on how sturdy the power poles need to be. the utility filed papers arguing that the current rule that the poles be built so they, "will not fail" is
