7:05 am
criminal history. >> it seems like from what we just saw, ron, the suspect's own lawyer played a big role getting him to surrender. what more do you know about that? >> the lawyer said the suspect called him and said hey, i'm the guy on tv. come and help. he was in a panic. the lawyer came down here police gave him a bulletproof vest and escorted him at the scene where he talked to the suspect through a bull horn and microphone. basically saying the police were running out of time and running out of patience and he should surrender, and that's what he did. >> wow, incredible scene there, ron. thank you very much. also we have new information on accused sex trafficker jeffrey epstein, the investigation into how it happened. that investigation is now expanding. nbc's stephanie gosk was on it from the very beginning. she joins us with the latest twist in a strange and bizarre case. >> each day seems like a new one, guys. good morning. a source close to the case told
7:06 am
nbc news an unidentified man claimed jeffrey epstein's body from the new york city medical examiner. we're also learning hoar about what was discovered ats a autopsy. this as the investigation into his apparent suicide zeros in on what happened inside that jail in the weeks and moments before he died. a federal judge wants explanation. this morning new details about the death of accused sex trafficker jeffrey epstein who died by apparent suicide last weekend. an autopsy revealing that epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones. two people familiar with the findings told "the washington post." among the bones broken in epstein's neck was the hyoid bone. near the adam's apple. nbc news has not verified the information. the president of the association of medical examiners told the post if that bone is broken that would generally raise questions about strangulation, but it is not definitive and does not
7:07 am
exclude suicidal hanging. nbc's dr. john torres adding it can happen during strangulation and hanging but occurs more often in strangulations. studies showed it occurred about one-third of the time in strangulations and 25% in hangings. meanwhile, a source close to the case is confirming the federal judge in charge of epstein's prosecution says epstein's earlier apparent suicide attempt has never been definitively explained and wants more information. according to a letter from the prison warden obtained by nbc news. >> i realize what i am. i'm very comfortable in my own skin. >> reporter: also this morning we're hearing from the fencier on his caribbean island with a newly released audio interview before 2003 sex allegations surfaced. >> on my own island or on my own

7:09 am
the only one, right? >> there is another one. follow me on this. it gets somewhat complicated. an uneye fayed plaintiff is filing a suit against the company that owns epstein's mansion here in new york city. she says she was abused in 2001 and she said people connected to that company should have known more about what was going on at that mansion and should have done more to stop it. >> legal strategy. thank you, stephanie. more breaking news overnight, a bird strike forced a passenger plane to make an emergency landing. it happened near moscow and the whole thing was caught on camera. kelly cobiella joins us. >> reporter: good morning to you. it was terrifying for those on in packed plane. families on board and children as well got into trouble almost immediately. one passenger said it began to shake just five seconds after takeoff and he could smell something burning.
7:10 am
a miracle over moscow. euro airlines flight 178 had just taken off when a flock of sea gulls struck both engines, severely damaging them. a passenger sitting next to the engine taking this video of the moment of the strike, a bird seen here and then the thud of the impact. the pilots reacting quickly, just half a mile from takeoff they shut down what was left of the engines, and found the closest landing spot available, a corn field just beyond the runway. without time to even lower the wheels the pilots skidded the plane to a safe landing in the field. screams from the cabin, but only 23 reported injuries among the 234 people on board. on the ground a surreal scene, the plane dwarfed by corn stocks, the passengers dazed. but overcome with relief. this passenger says some people were running barefoot through the field to get away from the plane but that everyone helped
7:11 am
each other safely evacuate. today the pilots are being lauded as heroes. the landing was good, says this injured woman. the pilots did a great job. everything is all right. in addition to that bird strike one of the engines reportedly caught fire but the flames did not, thankfully, spread to that cabin. nine of the injured were children but we understand all but one of the people hospitalized have been released this morning and the kremlin says it will give state awards to the hero pilots. savannah, craig? >> well deserved, kelly, thank you. now to some troubling new signs for your money. this morning nerves are frayed on wall street in the wake of the dow's first day of the year, a loss of 800 points. the markets shaken by fears of worldwide economic trouble. we're going to talk about the situation with jim cramer in a moment but first nbc's peter alexander joins us with more. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, craig, good
7:12 am
morning to you, this morning president trump is arguing that the economy remains strong, despite new concerns that it is actually weakening. and a loud signal that a recession could be on the horizon. fresh off that market meltdown with stocks plunging in one of their worst days all year fears of a recession are rising. the major stock selloff following a sounding of the alarms on wall street. the flashing red warning sign, a key economic indicator that's preceded every recession since 1956. it's called a yield curve inversion. here's what that means. when the economy is strong you can expect to be paid more for long-term treasury bond investments than for short-term investments. but on wednesday that flipped with short-term treasury bonds paying more than longer term ones, warning that investors are losing confidence in the economy. it comes amid signs of a global slowdown and growing fears about president trump's trade war with china. even after the president delayed
7:13 am
imposing a new round of tariffs until mid-december. acknowledging they could hurt american consumers. >> we're doing this for christmas season, just in case some of the tariffs would have an impact on u.s. consumers. so far there has been none. >> reporter: the president blaming jerome powell for not cutting interest rates more aggressively. tweeting we should easily be reaping big rewards and gains but the fed is holding us back. we will win. tonight president trump will hold another campaign rally, this one in manchester, new hampshire, a state boasting one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. this latest indicator warns a recession could be more than a year out but if it happens it would be the first to hit the u.s. since 2007. savannah? >> peter, thank you.
7:14 am
we want to bring in jim cramer, the host of cnbc "mad money." the stock market seems to have stabilized somewhat. what is your read? . >> i think we got new information that says inflation is not deaf anily the key, from walmart, and i like that. >> with the various drops this year in all of the significant inch dexes, how significant is that? >> i think it's a reaction to the bond market. the bond market is twice as size as the stock market. when the bond market is erratic and the rates go down too fast, it scares people and says things are uncertain. i think the commentary is a little misplaced i hear down here. people will say boom or recession, savannah, we will probably be in between. nobody wants to say in between. people bounce to extremes.
7:15 am
i'm not an extremist, if i thought we were going to have a big slowdown or recession, i would shout it from the rooftops. i see some trading, and federal reserve does what president trump says and they should, we won't be talking about an recession. so maybe things will be better. rates are low. people are buying houses. so it doesn't need to be as nearly as negative as some people are crafting it. >> and the trade war seems to have no end in sight. if there's no exit strategy, that's got to have a drag on the economy. >> it will be. i know that's not what president trump is saying, especially the leaders. i had the president of cisco, one of the largest companies in the world, tell me look, things are slowing and july was bad. and china is terrible. china is a giant country. we would love to say you know what, we don't care about china. i think the president should
7:16 am
recognize we have to care even if we don't want to because it is a big market for us. obviously, we're a bigger market for them. but we need some resolution or some sort of truce where they can be behind the scenes nontweeting work try to come to some sort of satisfactory compromise. >> i have about 30 seconds. the federal reserve is the third big player here. it has boosted the economy with lower rates but the economy thought it should be lowered more than it was. what is in play here? what should they do? >> powell feels good and jay may come out and say numbers are good but we stand ready to make if anything turns, we will prevent a recession. if he did that, people might say why didn't i do buying? the problem is he won't do it. he should listen. >> he should listen to jim cramer, right? >> dumber people listen! >> thank you very much on the

this morning on "today's" talker, the fight for equal pay, overnight mediation talks with the u.s. soccer federation broke down and the next step could be a showdown in federal court. in a moment we're going to talk about that with megan rapinoe and christen press with the team but first a look at how things got to this point. >> that's it. u.s. wins their fourth world cup. >> as the u.s. women's soccer team soaked in its record breaking world cup win in france last month the crowd amplified a message long pushed by the athletes. >> equal pay, equal pay, equal pay. >> in march 28 members of the u.s. women's soccer team filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the u.s. soccer federation, demanding the same salaries as the male players. the lawsuit claims in 2015 bonuses for the women were over $3.5 million less than what the men received the year before.
8:10 am
u.s. soccer disputing that saying last month the women's team actually earned more than the men. both sides agreed to enter arbitration, but overnight those negotiations broke down. a spokesperson for the players saying in a statement we must conclude these meetings sorely disappointed in the federation's determination to perpetuate discriminatory workplace conditions and behavior. they responded saying in part we value our players and have continually shown that by providing them with compensation and support that kpeds aexceeds other women's team in the world. the players plea for equal pay became a rallying cry at the world cup in frontance. over 14 million americans watched the women's final against the netherlands, 22% more than the 2018 men's world cup final. the american men did not even qualify for that tournament. as the women arrived back home
8:11 am
superstar forwardegan rapinoe did not mince words. >> the tv ratings are there, the revenue is there, the support is there, what more do you want from us? we've literally done every single thing, checked off every single box. >> and megan rapinoe and christen press join us now. hi, ladies, good morning. what happened? how did this break down? you guys were in this mediation with u.s. soccer, it was secret, behind closed doors, hoping to get to a resolution, you didn't and here we are, what happened? >> i mean, when they're ready to have a serious conversation about equal pay, i think the conversations will go better. we didn't feel like they were there or willing to get there. >> is there a particular sticking point? i mean, you know, it can get complicated once you get it down into the weeds. is there something in particular that's holding up this negotiation? >> i think, unfortunately, it was just the concept of paying us equally. we never even got past that. we were very hopeful in our
8:12 am
discussions with them that they were going to take our proposals and our position seriously, which is simply that every game that we play we get compensated the same way a man would for playing or winning that game. and it broke down right there. >> when crow look into the details of this, it is true that women's soccer, under your contract, you get paid differently than the men. the men are on a bonus pay schedule. the women get a salary. they negotiated for that. they wanted that. they wanted the certainty. so u.s. soccer says that's the source of the disparity, not gender discrimination. what do you say to that? >> there's a little bit of room for the contracts to be different. our realities are different. but as christen was saying i think it's fair for us to ask that when he play a game or we win or tie or lose, we should be paid the same as our male counterparts. i don't think that's an unrealistic or unreasonable ask to have equality. >> why on earth would u.s.
8:13 am
soccer take the position that you say it is taking at a moment that the u.s. women's soccer team is at the height of its popularity and success? it's kind of hard to believe that they just went in there and said, oh, we don't want to pay equally. so can you explain that? i mean -- >> i think it was hard for us to believe. >> yeah. >> and they definitely said the words that they did, you know, value us and were about the concept. but what we need is an actual pay structure moving forward where we're being compensated equally. and so like that's -- it's just been true that, you know, we'll never achieve as women any type of social equality without financial equality. and we're looking for equal pay, not any -- not any talking about it any longer. >> given how far apart the sides are and the fact that this negotiation broke down, do you think it's likely it goes to trial? goes to a courtroom? >> i think that's definitely a
8:14 am
possibility. we're always open to hearing that conversation if they're ready to have it. you know, that's the only federation we can play for. they're the only team that they -- that they have in us so we're sort of tethered together in that way. but at any point if they want to have a serious conversation and are willing to not only talk about paying us equally, and valuing us in that way, but actually doing it, and showing us that they'll do it, our ears are always open. i don't think anybody wants to go to litigation, but with that said we're very confident in our case, and this is about so much more than just our case. i mean, we're, you know, probably at the latter end of our career than, you know, than having a lot of time left. but just from a social perspective, from leaving the game in a better place for women everywhere, if it's not equal, there's no, you know, deal that we can get to. this isn't bargaining. you either value us equally and show that or you don't.

>> real quickly, i mean, the olympics are coming up next summer in tokyo. does this distract? does it affect what you do on the field? >> yeah, i think that we've shown that we are able to do a lot of work off the field. and still have successful results. this has been going on, this fight actually has been going on for forever. i think part of being on the women's national team means that you're taking part in this torch carrying for women and we take a lot of pride in that and it gives us a great purpose. >> megan, christen, thank you for being here, giving us the update. we appreciate it. we'll go over to al and get a check of the weather. >> thanks so much, savannah. we're watching a couple of clusters of pretty strong thunderstorms making their way through the plains, texas, and up into nebraska. some of these could be severe. we'll keep an eye on that. severe heat going on, 28 million out west from arizona all the way into central and northern

8:18 am

8:19 am
shared through his wife of 34 years, lisa swayze, a fellow dancer. >> i think he would be very pleased with this documentary. it shows who he strived to be so beautifully a beautifully and clearly. >> reporter: lisa says growing up patrick was trained with his choreographer mother patsy who was sometimes abusive. >> he's that old school texas thing that spare the rod, spoil the child. when he was 18 years old his dad came downstairs, she was laying into him and he pretty much told her that she needed to stop then and there or he'll divorce her. from that point on she never hit him again. it's that whole cycle of abuse thing and what patrick got from her was probably nowhere near what she got from her own mother. >> reporter: over the years patrick and his mother came to have a much stronger relationship. she died four years after patrick's death. the documentary also recounts
8:20 am
swayze's growing successes and takes viewers to his ranch in california, his way of staying grounded while working among stars. >> are you a cowgirl? >> he was proud that we were more real, and that we didn't live in beverly hills. >> you like horses? >> reporter: for all his triumphs, there were challenges, those who knew swayze say at times he struggled with alcohol abuse. >> it's difficult to watch someone destroy themselves. that was the hard part to kind of go through. >> reporter: but he was able to get it under control shortly before he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a battle he fought to the very end before passing away at the age of 57. >> there was a humbleness i hadn't seen in him and i was so impressed with the individual that i saw before me as he faced this disease. not everybody faces it so gratefully, and with such an open heart and love. >> reporter: now ten years later those who knew him and loved him are remembering him, and
8:21 am
inviting everyone to join the dance. >> i feel like i still have a relationship with him. he's just on the other side. it's a very strange thing because he's still in my life. he's just not present. >> a lot of memories there, joe. i know you got to see the documentary. what stood out to you? >> reporter: one of the most interesting things to me was that for all of his success he felt he was seen as a star but not necessarily always as an actor or an artist. and that really seemed to frustrate him, according to those who knew him. in fact, his wife says at first the producers of "ghost" did not want him in the movie. he had to fight extra hard to get that role. boy, we're glad he did. >> glad he won that fight. joe fryer in l.a., thank you. now pop start time. substantial sheinelle's on duty for carson. >> starting with kate mckinnon and ruth bader ginsburg.
