4:05 am
death. police say eight year old found un response enough her stratford home in the afternoon of new years eve. she was returned to kennedy hospital where she was pronounced. the camden county prosecutor's offers is simply calling this an ongoing sudden death investigation, in a 911 call, fox 29 requested and obtained from camden county sailor's brother tells the operator he needs help for his baby sister. he says she's unresponsive. and that his mother went upstairs and found her and told him to call 911. neighbors say sailor is the daughter of stratford police officer, she was on a local cheerleading squad, sterling lady night. the group has posted on it facebook page says no one goes through this alone, they ask for prayers, there is also a memorial fund set up for this child through a stratford td bank. checks can also be sent to the stratford police department. at this point investigators are not releasing details of what happened or how this girl died, only family members were home at the time of the
4:06 am
incident. >> karen? >> i know it is hitting a lot of people hard. jenny, thank you. police this morning are searching foreman who they say exposed himself to a woman while peeping right through heroin dough. officers were called to a home along wood lake drive, evesham township, yesterday night. to reports of man standing on the lady's patio looking inside of her house, while exposing himself. the suspect, being described as tall, slim man, wearing dark hoodie, dark pants. this is near the same area where two teen girls told police a man jumped out of his jeep, naked, and chased them back on december 30th. if you know anything, you are asked to call police. >> the fraternal order of police is calling out the district attorney's office in philadelphia. it is angry that prosecutor's dropped charges against the teen that you see right here. now, in this video that we first showed you monday, philadelphia police officer forces a teen girl to the ground and you can see her punching her. commissioner richard ross says the video does not show that teen smacking the officer so hard in the face, here's what
4:07 am
the f.o.p. had to say in a statement. the young woman, who freely admitted assaulting a uniformed officer on duty is allowed to walk away with absolutely no accountability by a district attorney, too busy dodging federal subpoenas to do the job he was sworn to do. it is to has been very disappointing over the past seven years watching an once promising district attorney to generate into a morally annette i cannily challenged side line playboy. the district attorney's office has a response saying, quote, district attorney williams will never apologize for lying on high investigative and prosecution standard before deciding to take away someone's freedom. it is stunning that anyone much less a member of law enforcement would ever believe anything else. >> thomas? >> karen, today family and friends will say their final good-byes to a fallen pennsylvania state trooper. hundreds showed up for the viewing of landon weaver in altoona yesterday. authorities say paul robeson shot and killed the 23 year old state trooper while he was

investigating a domestic incident in huntingdon county friday night. state police shot and killed robeson the next morning after they say he threatened them. trooper weaver's funeral set for tomorrow morning. >> all right, your money news right now. big news. macy's closing 100 stores and cutting thousands of jobs after a pretty dismal holiday shopping season. some will be in our area. steve keeley is at the macy's in moorestown, one of the ones that will be shutdown. good morning, steve. >> reporter: yep, always awful when we have to tell but job losses, we are talking about 400 almost locally full-time as they call associate jobs. and the most of the four macy's losing jobs, the moorestown with 107, we are told by macy's. this time of year where we're always doing these shopping stories, we start right across the street from this store every thanksgiving where the k-mart is open. then we're usually here around the moorestown mall for "black friday", then pre-christmas
4:09 am
sales, even the post christmas sales over at j.c. penney, now another big sale, and this one a lot sadder on monday, they're going to start their closing final clearance sale, we're told monday, and expect really big deals later, because they say these stores are going to close in early spring. so, probably another big percentage off what you got and saw after christmas, and then a huge percentage off if they have anything left in late february and early march and late march. because they'll clear these stores out, never get any of the spring lines in or the summer lines in, you will have to go to the other macy's, so talking moorestown there is store opened in 99, used to be a john wanamaker way back when they opened this mall in 62. then the old echelon mall, now called the voorhees town center, the may i's there opened in 1970. seventy-seven jobs gone there. over in pennsylvania,
4:10 am
neshaminy mall opened way back in 68, 89 jobs lost. then plymouth meeting mall opened in the 196 sixer a with 74 jobs lost. soap, a lot of these scores have a lot of history with a lot of families, and another sad lost for people who are used to shopping here. you can guilt to a macy's, you got the one in downtown philadelphia and others in this area. but will be a longer drive for either shoppers or for any of the lucky associates who get transferred somewhere. but karen, thomas, you know, they only need so many managers, so if you were the manager of this store, not like you could get the manager job over in philadelphia. that job obviously filled. but when we see the next macy's thanksgiving day parade, sadly, hundreds of local macy's workers and thousands every macy shoppers who are used to their local stores won't have them. they'll have the parade and longer ride to get to a macy's if they want to shop there. >> it is a sign of the times. all right, steve, thank you. >> you said it, though, something we certainly don't want to see people losing their jobs. >> still ahead this morning,.
4:11 am
>> police officers nefertiti what they'll come across when making a traffic stop. >> it is 11 little girl had for a local cop that left him speechless. speechless. the gift, well, that's now getting passed around. >> and we want to show you a woman, she is in a lot of trouble over the lottery. investigators say when she didn't win the jackpot, she put in a call to headquarters. that's where her problems started. what investigators say she said that got her busted. good morning. >> good morning, 4:11, working in wilmington, 495 northbound, route 13, the dew point highway. but otherwise, no problems at all, as you travel up and down the majors, in the first state. a loft you park on the driveway and drive on the parkway. here is a live look at the ben franklin parkway, sue has the snowy forecast, you want to grab a coffee and meet us back here in two and a half.

>> how many combed err it was than yesterday. temperatures mostly in the mid 40's around the region, higher than the normal high temperatures, this kind of feels a little more like january, 31 degrees in philadelphia, 17 up in the mountains, 25 in reading, 31 degrees down in dover. but, this is what it feels
4:15 am
like, these are the future windchills we expect throughout the region so expect the windchills all day to stay in the 20's, or in the teens right now, so many places, even by 7:00 tonight it, will feel like 23 degrees. >> so with cold temperatures in place, couple of things working here, and getting better handle on when this will start and how much snow we will get. we have this area of energy in the midwest, headed toward ohio it, will help in the formation after coastal low. we told you yesterday, that hasn't even formed yet. but it will. and eventually, give us some snow. starting tonight, now, instead of early, early tomorrow morning, let's time it out for you in the future cast. here is 2:00. it doesn't look like anything is happening. we're all dry and going to the grocery store. no kidding, it won't be that bad of a storm. it is 7:00 tonight, we start to see it moving in from west to east. so, chester county, lancaster county, could you start seeing the first snowflakes by then. 9:00, we're seeing snow
