6:39 am
surveillance video and they did a good job concealing their identity. they don't know if that is a bomb maker or a mule hired to tropical that bomb off here. >> you never know, you said it, steve, apparently that person knew the area well but never know looking at that surveillance camera. that is why we release those footage, the way the person walks, perhaps you might recognize the hat, pair of jeans, you never know. two-year old kensington toddler who died had drugs in his system. little zyair worrell tested positive for the active ingredient in marijuana he also had serious injuries including fractured ribs. fail police were called for reports of the unresponsive child earlier this week and found the child's mother and her boyfriend helding the toddler. police are calling his death a homicide but no arrests have been made just yet. well, for second time this year a former nfl player was shot and killed in new
