7:02 am
for the next few days, promising to bring flash flooding, hail, and maybe even tornadoes in some spots. rob will have your forecast in just a minute. but first, let's go to phillip mena in wichita falls, texas. good morning. >> reporter: dan, good morning. just yesterday, this was an access road on to a highway there, and today it's part of the wichita river, and with more rainfall expected this weekend, we could see flooding like this in much of the plains. in missouri, this massive sinkhole opening up in the middle of a golf course after rounds of flooding rains, the hole a stunning 80 feet wide, 35 feet deep. >> you can see some of the tension cracks out there, probably those walls will cave off some time this weekend. >> reporter: the area in the bull's-eye again today. record rain throughout texas and oklahoma wreaking havoc this memorial day weekend. in rain-starved wichita falls,

7:04 am
the threat is expected to last through the holiday weekend. rob is tracking it all, you were just saying, quite a contrast to conditions just a few weeks ago. >> yeah they were in an extreme drought. they're in this flood emergency situation now. wichita river, already the month, the wettest month on record. we're going to see another four, maybe five, even six inches more of rain. look at this map. the flash flood watch for the nearly entire state of texas, up to oklahoma. we could see from houston up to dallas, four-plus inches of rainfall on top of what they have already seen. you couple in the severe weather threat today and pushing that to the east houston and dallas are right in the mix. we'll talk more about this throughout the hour. dan. >> another busy weather weekend for you, rob, thank you. we're going to move on now to the other big story of the morning, the new developments and the looming questions in the with the prime suspect appearing in court, police are now saying he did not act alone, so, where and who are those other suspects?
7:05 am
also this morning, new information about what exactly happened inside that luxury home where a wealthy family and their housekeeper were killed. abc's ryan smith is on the story for us, once again, from washington. >> reporter: the hunt is on for wint's believed accomplices. we know now that police believe other people were in the house with wint. when that family was being held hostage and killed. now, we're learning more about the frightful hours when that family was under siege. this morning, daron wint is behind bars, held without bail on first-degree murder charge in the deaths of savvas savopoulos, his wife amy, their son and their housekeeper inside this d.c. mansion before it was set on fire. former marine recruit now a quadruple murder suspect. but officials say, the investigation is far from over. >> our work is not done. we'll continue to investigate this case and bring all charges that are appropriate. >> reporter: in this criminal complaint filed on friday, police say they believe the brutal killings required the
7:06 am
presence and assistance of more than one person and allegedly all four victims were held by wint and others. the document with sworn affidavits from investigators shedding new light on the brutal attack on the family and their housekeeper. shortly after the ordeal begins at 6:00 p.m. wednesday, the report revealing a domino's pizza order believed to be from amy, was accompanied with out of the ordinary instructions. leave the two pizzas on the porch, ring the doorbell and leave. and the next morning, a flurry of calls made by savvas savopoulos including one to his assistant, directing him to leave $40,000 cash on a backseat of a car, parked inside the home's attached garage. after that money was delivered, the victims were killed. just hours later, the house goes up in flames. we know now wint was identified by dna lifted from the crust of that pizza found in the savopoulos' bedroom. and processed in a specialized
7:07 am
lab. >> because of that we were able to get a hit on a dna match. >> reporter: authorities nabbing wint after a dramatic manhunt thursday night, just missing in new york city and then tracking him and five others to a maryland hotel. >> we were able to identify him inside the vehicle. we tailed the vehicle, we were able to get to location where we could safely take him down. and we arrested him. >> reporter: and while police believe others were in that house, no word yet on who those people could be. >> this is all a little bit confusing, why would release the other people that they picked up with wint, and if those people aren't suspects, who else do they think might be involved in this? >> well that's the troubling part for many people, dan. they released them without charging them with any crimes. so, at this point, they don't know who those other accomplices may be. but one thing is interesting here, police say that one of those five people told them,
7:08 am
bought $10,000 in money orders and u.s. marshals said they spotted what appeared to be a large stack of $100 in one of those cars. now, caught on camera, there's shock and anger about this police body-cam video. a cop using a taser and pepper spray on a man who was having a medical emergency while driving his car. that officer already resigned. and abc's alex perez is here with more on the outrage and the fallout. good morning, alex. >> hey, paula, as you said, one officer has resigned. this morning, authorities are now investigating whether two other officers acted inappropriately. it all started as a call for a hit and run accident. but things quickly got ugly. this morning, tense moments caught on tape. police body-cam video shows officers in fredericksburg, virginia, drawing their guns. >> let me see your other hand right now. >> reporter: and yelling at a man who's sitting in the driver's seat and appears
7:09 am
unresponsive. >> put your hands up, both of them, now! >> reporter: police called to the scene after washington allegedly drove his silver hyundai the wrong way down the street. hitting another car, striking the median. officer jurgens then tasered washington. the taser failed. jurgens then pepper sprays him. it turns out the man, 34-year-old david washington was having some sort medical emergency. >> get out of the car right now! >> reporter: finally threatening washington and demanding that he get out of the car. >> that's the point, get out. >> reporter: the officers then drag him out of the car, washington can be heard moaning. an ambulance eventually arrives and takes washington to the hospital. >> the officers on duty didn't assess the situation correctly. and they had the time to do so. >> reporter: the officer has now resigned. in a statement fredericksburg police said --
7:10 am
the use of force demonstrated in the incident involving mr. washington was not in compliance with department policy or training. now, we did reach out to washington to see how he was doing, but our calls weren't returned. authorities did not reveal exactly what kind of medical problem he was having, but he could still face criminal charges. officer jurgens, in a letter to local newspaper, he believes, given the situation, he did what he had to do. paula, dan. >> tough to watch that footage. >> and still a few unanswered questions here. tough to see that video and to see all of that happened. those tense moments in those few seconds. >> and if they didn't have the body-cam video in that jurisdiction we wouldn't even know that it existed. alex, great to have you in studio with us. >> thanks, alex. now to the e-mail released that hillary clinton claims that she's happy about. the state department making public the first batch of private e-mails as secretary of state. questions about this e-mail account has dogged her presidential campaign. abc's cecilia vega is on the
7:11 am
trail. >> reporter: from bookstores to a brewery, hillary clinton is back in new hampshire. and now this morning back on the hot seat. do you have a perception problem? many americans don't believe that you have told the truth on benghazi. >> i'm going to let americans decide that. >> reporter: on a friday before a holiday weekend the state department released the first batch of e-mails written on clinton's personal account, the 296 e-mails showing that, while clinton never sent classified information, one e-mail was considered so sensitive, the fbi has now classified it, redacting these 23 words. >> that doesn't change the fact that all of the information in the e-mails was handled appropriately. >> reporter: her aides hand-selecting the e-mails, many mundane. with clinton writing, please print and can you call me?
7:12 am
so far, republicans have yet to point to a smoking gun. but with tens of thousands of pages still to be released, this controversy goes on as hillary clinton goes back on the trail. >> thank you all, i'll be back. >> reporter: for "good morning america," cecilia vega, abc news, exeter, new hampshire. >> our thanks to cecilia vega for that. and we want to send it over to ron claiborne. tracking the other stories developing. good morning, everyone. we begin with the government's domestic telephone surveillance program stalled in congress this morning. in a rare late-night session, the republican-led senate failed to pass a measure. that would have ended the nsa's collection of private phone records of americans. the senators also rejected any short-term extension of the law enacted after 9/11. the law is set to expire june 1st. the senate will reconvene for another vote later this month. and a new report out this morning saying that general motors could face criminal charges in connection with the ignition defect tied to at least 104 deaths. according to "the new york
7:13 am
times," they have identified criminal wrongdoing in gm's failure to disclose the faulty ignition issues. the report also says that gm could pay a record settlement that could exceed the $1.2 billion fine that was paid by toyota last year for concealing acceleration problem. last year, gm recalled a record number of cars for faulty ignition. and overnight, federal prosecutors are looking into possible criminal violations in that huge oil spill off the coast of santa barbara, california, they have ordered the owners of the pipeline to suspend operations on the ruptured line that released crude oil into the ocean. meanwhile, workers are trying to scrub and clean some of the animals affected by the oil spill. includeing seals, pelicans and dolphins. and if you're hitting the road on this unofficial kickoff to the summer season, expect a lot of company on those roads, aaa says that more than 37 million americans driving this weekend, that's the highest number of travelers in the decade.
7:14 am
a dip in gas prices may be fueling this surge in road trips. the national average is now $2.74 a gallon, that's down 92 cents from a year ago. and finally, ducks in london. no longer have to deal with crowds on their daily commute to the pond, special duck lanes have been installed on the sidewalks near rivers and canals. allowing the local wildlife to waddle in peace. it doesn't seem to be ruffling too many feathers. >> is a seagull allowed in the duck lane? >> all animals are allowed. >> okay, gotcha. >> londoners for the most part seem to be enjoying the quirky idea. just this morning, a rat ran in front of me as i was leaving my home. i have a more charitable attitude towards rats today. >> they were staying in their lane? >> how do they keep them in that

7:16 am
and fled from his idaho home. after a dispute with his wife. >> and you're sure it the same one? >> yes, it was right next to me. i looked over and he has kids in the back. >> reporter: authorities say the children were in immediate danger. kelci, a mother herself, didn't want the van to get away. for the next 20 miles, she tailed reavis. using exit numbers to guide officers. >> we're now passing exit 42. we are at the exit 46. i'm here, i'm right behind him. so, until a sheriff takes over, he's not going anywhere. >> reporter: back on the road. police were closing in. but kelci warning at one point, the suspect may be trying to evade the officers. >> the car is trying to lose the sheriff right now. >> just hang back ma'am and stay safe. >> reporter: but police did pull over the van. he faces possible charges of custodial interference.
7:17 am
>> i'm just happy i could help. >> reporter: for "good morning america," aditi roy, abc news, san francisco. >> she's great. good on her. moving on now, the countdown is on to the indy 500. >> and we have the exclusive behind the scenes access to one of the most dangerous on the -- of the most dangerous jobs on the track. a look at the pit crew, where women are helping to keep those cars on the world-famous track. abc's matt gutman has the story. >> reporter: this morning, they're flooding to the indianapolis motor speedway, ahead of the biggest race in motorsports. the indy 500 on sunday. which is having a rocky start. four cars crashing during practice, including this fiery wreck severely injuring james hinchcliffe. overnight, hinchcliffe, posting to instagram from the hospital, long recovery ahead, thanks for the support. it's only on the track at indy, that you get the sense of the speed. this is as fast as an airplane. suiting up last week, i got a feel for that speed.
7:18 am
it was the most incredible experience. the track isn't just dangerous for the drivers, but also the pit crew. watch this mechanic sent flying earlier this year and it's not just the men keeping cars fast. anna chatten was the first woman ever over the wall. and she knows the hazards. >> the pit wall is really high. and i just didn't have time to get back over it and it hit my foot and broke my foot. >> reporter: the new mother won't be on the track this year. but 27-year-old jessica mace will. anyone ever give you a hard time being woman in this job? >> they'll ask the guys to do it. i get left out. that's fine, if you want to do that, that's fine with me, it just makes me work harder. >> reporter: just watch her on sunday. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, miami. >> they say you truly can't
