Read Bill Cosby' Criminal Complaint

Bill Cosby mugshot
On Dec. 30, 2015, Bill Cosby was arrested and charged on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. We have the criminal complaint and probable cause documents for you to read.

Bill Cosby has been accused of drugging, molesting and raping women for decades and numerous women (some unconfirmed reports put the number at over 50) have come to the surface with allegations the the comedian/actor/producer sexually assaulted and abused them.



The woman who filed the complaint in 2005 is named Andrea Constand. She is a Canadian woman who knew Bill Cosby in the early part of 2000 (2001-2004) when she worked at Cosby's Alma Mater Temple University. Cosby "took her under his wing" so to speak, befriended and mentored her. That tutelage culminated in one fateful evening in 2004 when according to the criminal complaint, Bill Cosby invited her to his home residence, gave her three blue pills, water and wine that resulted in her feeling paralyzed. During what may have been as long as 7 hours, Andrea Constand says she was in and out of consciousness where she recalls instances of him sexually abusing and digitally penetrating her.

San Bernardino mass shootings, ISIS terrorism and gun control

How do you feel after the San Bernardino mass shootings? Do you feel that ISIS terrorism is a growing threat in the United States? Do you think Americans need more or less gun control?  While there are many debates currently underway, there are many who feel that though it would be nice to live in a peaceful society without guns, it's at the point where it is simply impossible.

San Bernardino Shooting Victims

Are we at the point that all citizens (who are in their right mind, and without violent, criminal pasts), should be trained in using weapons and practice carrying them at all times?

Do you feel afraid to go out in public places or attend major, public events since the Paris attacks and San Bernardino mass shootings? Do you think that ISIS attacks and outright terrorism in America will increase or decrease? Would you feel safer in a movie theater with two, professionally trained armed guards, or a theater full of people with legal, concealed weapons? There's no doubt that those who are involved in terror attacks without the ability to arm themselves are sitting ducks. There's no guarantee that if you were carrying a weapon during an act of terror that you would be able to defend yourself or others in times, but it sure seems better to be armed than to be unarmed.


What do you think? What are your thoughts? Do you think America needs more gun control or more armed citizens carrying concealed weapons?

Does America have so many enemies that the common, regular citizen needs to be armed during his or her day to day events as a matter of self defense?

Check out this video with attorney Lisa Bloom as she shares very low statistics regarding terrorism. It's interesting to point out that most feel those statistics are about to change.

Lisa Bloom stated, "But, I think the fear thing is so important. Because everybody in the media, not this show, but fear, fear, fear. I tweeted all the statistics today. You are more likely to be killed by a toddler than a terrorist in the U.S. You are more likely to be crushed to death by your

T.V. than killed by a terrorist. You have a one in 20 million chance in the U.S. to be killed by a terrorist. It is extremely low."

President Obama addresses the nation on ISIS (ISIL) and terrorism (Watch the full video, read transcript)

On Dec. 6, 2015, President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office, where he stood and told America that we would defeat ISIS (ISIL). The announcement came after a California shooting that left 14 dead. It was determined the husband and wife team, Tashfeen Malik and Syed Rizwan Farook were radicalized Muslims, setting off great fear, debate and controversy regarding ISIS in America, gun control and what steps should be taken to combat terrorism.

President Obama National Address Transcript



Good evening. On Wednesday, 14 Americans were killed as they came together to celebrate the holidays. They were taken from family and friends who loved them deeply. They were white and black; Latino and Asian; immigrants and American-born; moms and dads; daughters and sons. Each of them served their fellow citizens and all of them were part of our American family.
Tonight, I want to talk with you about this tragedy, the broader threat of terrorism, and how we can keep our country safe.

The FBI is still gathering the facts about what happened in San Bernardino, but here is what we know. The victims were brutally murdered and injured by one of their coworkers and his wife. So far, we have no evidence that the killers were directed by a terrorist organization overseas, or that they were part of a broader conspiracy here at home. But it is clear that the two of them had gone down the dark path of radicalization, embracing a perverted interpretation of Islam that calls for war against America and the West. They had stockpiled assault weapons, ammunition, and pipe bombs. So this was an act of terrorism, designed to kill innocent people.

President Obama speaks on Dec. 6


Our nation has been at war with terrorists since al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11. In the process, we’ve hardened our defenses — from airports to financial centers, to other critical infrastructure. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have disrupted countless plots here and overseas, and worked around the clock to keep us safe. Our military and counter-terrorism professionals have relentlessly pursued terrorist networks overseas — disrupting safe havens in several different countries, killing Osama bin Laden, and decimating al Qaeda’s leadership.

Over the last few years, however, the terrorist threat has evolved into a new phase. As we’ve become better at preventing complex, multifaceted attacks like 9/11, terrorists turned to less complicated acts of violence like the mass shootings that are all too common in our society. It is this type of attack that we saw at Fort Hood in 2009; in Chattanooga earlier this year; and now in San Bernardino. And as groups like ISIL grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and then Syria, and as the Internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing efforts by terrorists to poison the minds of people like the Boston Marathon bombers and the San Bernardino killers.

For seven years, I’ve confronted this evolving threat each morning in my intelligence briefing. And since the day I took this office, I’ve authorized U.S. forces to take out terrorists abroad precisely because I know how real the danger is. As Commander-in-Chief, I have no greater responsibility than the security of the American people. As a father to two young daughters who are the most precious part of my life, I know that we see ourselves with friends and coworkers at a holiday party like the one in San Bernardino. I know we see our kids in the faces of the young people killed in Paris. And I know that after so much war, many Americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure.

Well, here’s what I want you to know: The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it. We will destroy ISIL and any other organization that tries to harm us. Our success won’t depend on tough talk, or abandoning our values, or giving into fear. That’s what groups like ISIL are hoping for. Instead, we will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless, and by drawing upon every aspect of American power.

Here’s how. First, our military will continue to hunt down terrorist plotters in any country where it is necessary. In Iraq and Syria, airstrikes are taking out ISIL leaders, heavy weapons, oil tankers, infrastructure. And since the attacks in Paris, our closest allies — including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom — have ramped up their contributions to our military campaign, which will help us accelerate our effort to destroy ISIL.

Second, we will continue to provide training and equipment to tens of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian forces fighting ISIL on the ground so that we take away their safe havens. In both countries, we’re deploying Special Operations Forces who can accelerate that offensive. We’ve stepped up this effort since the attacks in Paris, and we’ll continue to invest more in approaches that are working on the ground.


Third, we’re working with friends and allies to stop ISIL’s operations — to disrupt plots, cut off their financing, and prevent them from recruiting more fighters. Since the attacks in Paris, we’ve surged intelligence-sharing with our European allies. We’re working with Turkey to seal its border with Syria. And we are cooperating with Muslim-majority countries — and with our Muslim communities here at home — to counter the vicious ideology that ISIL promotes online.

Fourth, with American leadership, the international community has begun to establish a process — and timeline — to pursue ceasefires and a political resolution to the Syrian war. Doing so will allow the Syrian people and every country, including our allies, but also countries like Russia, to focus on the common goal of destroying ISIL — a group that threatens us all.

This is our strategy to destroy ISIL. It is designed and supported by our military commanders and counter-terrorism experts, together with 65 countries that have joined an American-led coalition. And we constantly examine our strategy to determine when additional steps are needed to get the job done. That’s why I’ve ordered the Departments of State and Homeland Security to review the visa program under which the female terrorist in San Bernardino originally came to this country. And that’s why I will urge high-tech and law enforcement leaders to make it harder for terrorists to use technology to escape from justice.

Now, here at home, we have to work together to address the challenge. There are several steps that Congress should take right away.




To begin with, Congress should act to make sure no one on a no-fly list is able to buy a gun. What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to buy a semi-automatic weapon? This is a matter of national security.

We also need to make it harder for people to buy powerful assault weapons like the ones that were used in San Bernardino. I know there are some who reject any gun safety measures. But the fact is that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies — no matter how effective they are — cannot identify every would-be mass shooter, whether that individual is motivated by ISIL or some other hateful ideology. What we can do — and must do — is make it harder for them to kill.

Next, we should put in place stronger screening for those who come to America without a visa so that we can take a hard look at whether they’ve traveled to war zones. And we’re working with members of both parties in Congress to do exactly that.

Finally, if Congress believes, as I do, that we are at war with ISIL, it should go ahead and vote to authorize the continued use of military force against these terrorists. For over a year, I have ordered our military to take thousands of airstrikes against ISIL targets. I think it’s time for Congress to vote to demonstrate that the American people are united, and committed, to this fight.

My fellow Americans, these are the steps that we can take together to defeat the terrorist threat. Let me now say a word about what we should not do.

We should not be drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria. That’s what groups like ISIL want. They know they can’t defeat us on the battlefield. ISIL fighters were part of the insurgency that we faced in Iraq. But they also know that if we occupy foreign lands, they can maintain insurgencies for years, killing thousands of our troops, draining our resources, and using our presence to draw new recruits.

The strategy that we are using now — airstrikes, Special Forces, and working with local forces who are fighting to regain control of their own country — that is how we’ll achieve a more sustainable victory. And it won’t require us sending a new generation of Americans overseas to fight and die for another decade on foreign soil.




Here’s what else we cannot do. We cannot turn against one another by letting this fight be defined as a war between America and Islam. That, too, is what groups like ISIL want. ISIL does not speak for Islam. They are thugs and killers, part of a cult of death, and they account for a tiny fraction of more than a billion Muslims around the world — including millions of patriotic Muslim Americans who reject their hateful ideology. Moreover, the vast majority of terrorist victims around the world are Muslim. If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate.

That does not mean denying the fact that an extremist ideology has spread within some Muslim communities. This is a real problem that Muslims must confront, without excuse. Muslim leaders here and around the globe have to continue working with us to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology that groups like ISIL and al Qaeda promote; to speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity.




But just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination. It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently. Because when we travel down that road, we lose. That kind of divisiveness, that betrayal of our values plays into the hands of groups like ISIL. Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co-workers, our sports heroes — and, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that.

My fellow Americans, I am confident we will succeed in this mission because we are on the right side of history. We were founded upon a belief in human dignity — that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like, or what religion you practice, you are equal in the eyes of God and equal in the eyes of the law.

Even in this political season, even as we properly debate what steps I and future Presidents must take to keep our country safe, let’s make sure we never forget what makes us exceptional.
Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear;
that we have always met challenges — whether war or depression, natural disasters or terrorist attacks — by coming together around our common ideals as one nation, as one people. So long as we stay true to that tradition, I have no doubt America will prevail.

Thank you. God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.

Ted Bundy: Early years and beginning of serial killer's sadistic behavior




He was born on Nov. 24, 1947, and would become one of the most infamous, serial killers of all time. Theodore "Ted" Bundy, would forever be known as a name associated with fear, terror and the hatred of women. But what happened to turn an innocent, newborn child into a sadistic killer? Were there signs in Ted Bundy's early years of the horrors that were to come?

State Archives of Florida, Florida Memory,



News Footage: Ted Bundy Archives
His mother, Eleanor "Louise" Cowell Bundy, was unwed and pregnant in the 40s. She gave birth to Theodore Robert Cowell in Burlington, Vermont, while living at the Elizabeth Lund Home for Unwed Mothers. While Ted Bundy's birth certificate originally listed a man named Lloyd Marshal as his father, his biological father's identity has yet to be verified. There are numerous rumors that circulate Bundy's parentage, including the possibility his mother's father (maternal grandfather) could be his father and that he was the product of incest. While it is unclear who Ted Bundy's father was, what is certain is his childhood included a great deal of uncertainty.

After Ted's birth, Louise Cowell returned to her parent's, Samuel and Eleanor Cowell's, house in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where her parents assumed the role of Ted Bundy's mother and father, and Louise was delegated the role of sister. One can only imagine how strange this situation was for Louise, but could it have resulted in the raising of a man hating, sadistic serial killer? After all, Louise moved away from the home with Ted when he was only four-years-old. Many single mothers live at home with their child for the first early years and move away. If that was what it took to create a serial killer, there'd be undoubtedly many more horrific cases of murder and mayhem.

So what did happen in Bundy's early life that set him on such a terrifying path? What caused Bundy to become the evil monster that murdered more than 30 women in cold blood?

According to Ann Rule's book The Stranger Beside Me Louise Cowell moved to Tacoma, Washington, to stay with family  members and begin a new life for herself and Ted. She legally changed Ted's last name to "Nelson," apparently to keep others from thinking he was illegitimate. It was in Tacoma, Washington, that she met and fell in love with Johnnie Culpepper Bundy. The two married on May 19, 1951, and the couple would have four children together.





According to the book The Only Living Witness, the turmoil that surrounded Ted's early years, the questioning regarding his parents, and the move away from his grandparents in Philadelphia, contributed to the psychopathy the young boy would later display.

On page 56 in the book below, there is a passage that refers to the Bundy's family suspicion that Ted Bundy's father may have been his maternal grandfather. Referring to the story Louise Cowell told regarding Ted's father, it reads, "Much later, family members would express open doubts about this story, directing a defense psychiatrist's attention to Louise's violent, possibly deranged, father Samuel Cowell."

Woman taken in for mental evaluation after caught pushing her dead 3-year-old in playground swing




There is a strange and macabre story coming out of Maryland tonight. According to news reports, and an update from the Charles County Sheriff's Office in Maryland, a mother was caught pushing her dead 3-year-old child in a playground swing.

Authorities arrived at the scene located at Wills Memorial Park,  at 500 St. Mary's Avenue around 6:55 a.m., Friday morning,  after receiving reports that the woman had been pushing the child in the swing for an unusually long period of time. It is unclear how the child died and at this time, medical examiners are performing an autopsy.

The mother's name has not been publicly released; however, authorities described her as a 24-year-old woman.

You may see photos of the park and a report from local Maryland news, WUSA9 here.

The report sounds like something from a horror movie and it must have been extremely disturbing for any onlookers who witnessed the event first hand. It is unknown whether the mother had lost touch with reality and was overcome by grief, or if she was involved in foul play that resulted in the child's death. At this time there are no charges pending against the mother.

Stay tuned for further updates on this breaking news story.


Read Josh Duggar's police report for admitted sexual molestation (Warning! Graphic Content)







The following is the Josh Duggar police report concerning the sexual molestation of five, underage girls; four of whom were his sisters. There is a great deal of misinformation circulating the Internet surrounding these charges as the family is portrayed as a "Godly, Christian homeschooling family" on the TLC network. The show originally began as "17 Kids and Counting," then "18 Kids and Counting," and finally at it's current count is "19 Kids and Counting." The family is headed by James "Jim Bob" Duggar and his wife Michelle Duggar.

Photo: TLC
The show made headline news when on May 21, 2015, InTouch Weekly released an explosive report indicating that Duggar son Josh Duggar admitted to sexually molesting five young children, four of whom were his sisters. InTouch Weekly exclusively obtained a copy of the police report through a Freedom of Information Act request. You may read the report below. (Warning! Graphic Content Included). Joshua James "Josh" Duggar, is the eldest of the brood, and was born on March 3, 1998. According to the police report, he was 14-years-old a the time of the first, admitted molestation and the events took place in 2002. The police report was filed in 2006. The names of the child victims have been redacted from the police report.

Following InTouch Weekly's report, the Duggars released a family statement through their official Facebook account and Josh Duggar released an apology for his behavior.

According to the police report, one of the victims stated that in March, 2002, one of the female victims notified Jim Bob that Josh was molesting her by fondling her breasts and genitals while she was sleeping. The police report indicates a pattern of this behavior with other incidents occurring in other settings. Josh admitted to his parents his behavior and the Duggars attempted to correct him through discipline, and  focusing on his relationship with God. The approach did not work as in March, 2003, another victim came forward to alert Jim Bob that she was being sexually molested by Josh. There is no way to determine exactly how many incidents took place throughout this time and some of the victims say they were half asleep during the abuse.

After the March 2003 incident, Jim Bob Duggar reportedly brought the matter up to his then church, First Baptist. Radar Online reported that some of the incidents took place at the church.

What has been determined; however, is that neither the church nor any church worker who was aware of the incestuous molestations called authorities to report it and ensure files were charged. They did suggest that Josh Duggar undergo some sort of treatment, but he was never seen by a professional or received counseling by someone experienced in treating juvenile sex offenders, those involved in incestuous relationships or people dealing with pedophilia. He stayed with someone described as a friend of the family for several months, then was believed cured when he returned to the family. This "treatment" lasted from March 17, 2003 until July 17, 2003. Michelle Duggar described the friend as kind of a "mentor" to Josh Duggar.

According to the InTouch report, Jim Bob, Josh and a church member spoke to a friend who was an Arkansas State Trooper named Jim Hutchens. Hutchens did not report the abuse but spoke about the potential consequences Josh Duggar could face from molesting children. It turns out that Hutchens, the state trooper who was advising Josh Duggar, is now serving a 56-year prison sentence for child pornography charges.

You may learn more about the charges, the action detectives took while investigating the allegations and how the information came to light in the police report below.

Chelsea Bruck case: Nancy Grace transcripts, latest Twitter updates, press conference news videos, photos




Chelsea Bruck disappeared on Oct. 26, 2014, after attending a Halloween party held at 3587 Post Rd in Newport, Michigan. An estimated 600-1000 people attended the party and authorities continue searching for leads to explain what happened to the 22-year-old girl that fateful night. Reports say that Miss Bruck was last seen walking with an unidentified male to a parking lot.

Bruck has been missing nearly six months with vast searches taking place in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. There has been a break in the case as on Monday, April 6, 2015, authorities with the Monroe County Sheriff's Department conducted additional searches in Flat Rock, Michigan and announced they found clothing that resembled parts of the Halloween costume Chelsea wore at the time of her disappearance. Bruck had worn a handcrafted costume of the Batman character "Poison Ivy" that consisted of leaves and other material. The clothing was located near an abandoned building in Flat Rock on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2014. The continued search and potential break prompted the family to hold a press conference on April 8, 2015.

Authorities are conducting DNA testing on the clothing.

Ivy from "Batman." Amidst the other party goers she disappears, never seen again. Happening right now, police have found parts of a Halloween costume that may be connected to the disappearance of Chelsea Bruck.

Let`s go straight out to Rob Davidek, news director at WWJ. Thanks so much for being with us. We`ve been on this since the get-go, Rob. Tell me, where were the parts to the costume found?

ROB DAVIDEK, WWJ (via telephone): Nancy, this is in an abandoned industrial site area. It`s about 60 acres, overgrown, some hills, some mounds of dirt. It`s a perfund site, really, contaminated with hazardous waste. The EPA has listed it for a possible clean-up because it poses a

health risk, really, to the environment, to humans. And that`s where the police were over the past couple of days. That`s where the focus of the investigation was.

GRACE: Everybody, you`re seeing the party. It was cram-packed with up to 500 to 600 people. There you see Chelsea in the distance. Now, take a look. You`re seeing video of a previous Pickax Preacher (ph) concert Chelsea attended from YouTube.

Long story short, the party was mobbed. It was open to the public, but they never expected 500 to 600 people to show up. Well, they did. And

Chelsea goes to the party amidst all of these people, disappears. She went with some of her friend girls to the party. They saw her during the party.

At some point, they realize they don`t see her anymore. She`s never been seen again.

Now, this is the picture of what she looked like that night. We all know the supervillain Poison Ivy. It`s Batman`s nemesis, one of them. This is

not what she looks like in real life, but that`s what she looked like the night of the party.
Monroe County Sheriff's Office

In the last hours, happening now, police believe that they have found part of her Poison Ivy costume. Let`s see the map again, please, Justin.

That`s the costume -- the wig, the green ivy-leaf-covered skirt. She was wearing black yoga pants that night.

Look. It looks like quite a distance, but it`s only about an 11 to 14- minute drive from the party. And as you`re hearing Rob Davidek, news director WWJ, say it`s actually in a perfund area, which means it had been

polluted in the past and was ordered cleaned up by the U.S. government perfund law.

Back to you, Rob. Question. That night, nobody remembers seeing her actually leave from the party. But we`ve now had a lot of tips, a lot of

false tips that seemingly have muddled the search for Chelsea.

[20:05:12]But I want to go back to this location. It`s an old abandoned factory site, Rob?

DAVIDEK: Yes. Yes, that`s it. It`s a -- it`s by a Ford plant, a lot of railroad tracks in the area, almost like a loading yard for railroad

tracks. It`s a place that`s called Specialty Petroleum, an abandoned industrial site, about 60 acres -- you know, about 60 acres there that the

police -- they had to use ATVs, all-terrain vehicles, to search. They had helicopters in the air yesterday, you know, looking and searching that

area.

GRACE: Everybody, we are looking for Chelsea Bruck, who went missing dressed as Poison Ivy. And what`s so disturbing about it is that people

may have seen her but not realizing it`s Chelsea because she was wearing this Poison Ivy get-up with a wig and everything!

Another question to you, Rob Davidek joining us. The search has just now turned up what we believe to be part of a Poison Ivy costume. To my

understanding, it`s the green leafy part that they think that they have found?

DAVIDEK: You know what? The cops aren`t saying anything at this point as to specifically what was found. The leafy part is what we`re hearing. We

haven`t confirmed that. They had other evidence also that they found. They took it. They sent it to the Michigan State Police...

GRACE: Hold on! Hold on! We`re showing a shot of it, and it is an artificial green leaf that matches up to her costume. Now, what does it

mean? Does it mean her costume was taken off her body? Does it mean she was there and she shed a part
Monroe County Sheriff: Chelsea Bruck, 22
of her costume just by sitting there? It

doesn`t make sense to me, Rob Davidek -- let`s look at the map again -- that she would be in this abandoned factory area, part of a perfund clean-

up, for casual reasons. I don`t think she would choose to go there. Let`s see the map.

Rob Davidek, does anybody go there for any reason?

DAVIDEK: As of this point, no. We can`t really say -- you know, a couple of neighborhoods nearby. But it looks like it`s pretty abandoned, maybe a

couple trails here and there, but it doesn`t look like anybody really spends much time there.

GRACE: Now, it`s interesting to me, there are active train tracks nearby, active in the sense that -- is that a commuter train? Is it a cargo train?

What is that train track nearby, Rob?

DAVIDEK: It`s -- as I look at it, it`s like a loading yard, a number of (ph), and it`s not surprising with a Ford plant nearby, right? You`re

going to have trains coming in. It would be more freight, not an Amtrak passenger train, something like that. It would be more freight in that

area.

GRACE: I just don`t see why she would be there for innocent reasons.

To Dr. William Morrone, forensic pathologist joining me tonight. Dr. Morrone, thanks for being with us. You have seen so many homicides, Dr.

Morrone. What if any evidence can we get off of that piece of what appears to be Chelsea`s Poison Ivy outfit?

DR. WILLIAM MORRONE, FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST: The most important thing is that the closer the clothes are to her body, the more likely we are to find

bodily fluids or DNA. So we have to find the leotards. We have to find the undergarments. We have to find the socks and the shoes and anything

around the head.

And the reason why this is coming out now is, in this area across the Great Lakes, this has all been under two or three feet of snow for the last six

months. That`s good news. This is why this is good news. It`s like all the DNA and all the fluids have been put in the refrigerator until now. So

that`s good news for the investigation and for the state forensics lab, good luck.

GRACE: Well, let me tell you, Dr. Morrone, if you`ll re call the case of Chandra Levy, who was actually bound by her leotards -- her body was found

there in Rock Creek Park in the D.C. area years after she was attacked and killed -- Chandra Levy, the congressional intern to Condit. And her

leotards were still intact and still had bodily fluids on them years later. Explain.

MORRONE: That`s because they dehydrate, and basically, over time, they just lose water. So the proteins, as long as they don`t break down -- and

they`re not going break down in this short of time because the snow and the cold weather was, like, keeping it all in the refrigerator. It`s a sine

qua non event that the refrigeration and the cold weather are going to work to preserve the DNA and bodily fluids -- sine qua non event.

GRACE: Yes, thanks for Latin, Dr. Morrone. I believe we`ve talked about that before.

Everybody, you`re seeing video from a previous Pickax Preacher concert Chelsea attended on YouTube.

[20:10:02]Joining me right now, special guest Mike Williams, who actually hosted the party where Chelsea vanishes into thin air. Mike Williams,

thanks for being with us. How did the party get so out of control? I know it was not your plan.

MIKE WILLIAMS, HALLOWEEN PARTY HOST (via telephone): The party -- I mean, I was expecting a large amount of people at the party, I mean, as always,

when I throw these large, extravagant concerts. But I mean, it got out of hand to the point where people started parking on the street. But I

managed to clean that up in a matter of couple hours and managed to get everything mostly under control, you know, for the most part.

GRACE: Did you see Chelsea Bruck there?

WILLIAMS: I did not see her at the party, no.

GRACE: You know, a lot of people have said they didn`t see her. How do you know her?

WILLIAMS: She came to previous parties. She came to shows, too. She came to our CD release show back in May. And she was a fan of the band.

GRACE: And when did you find out, you know, after this party, that she vanished?

WILLIAMS: I found out Monday morning around probably 7:00 AM.

GRACE: How did you find out?

WILLIAMS: Her sister messaged me on Facebook and asked me if I`d seen her, or knew of her whereabouts, and I had no idea. And as the day went on, it

escalated, and then that`s when about 5:00 or 6:00, I, you know, became, like, a really big concern and something -- and we knew something had

happened.

GRACE: Everyone, with me is the guy who hosted the party where hundreds of people showed up. They were expecting a lot of people, but not that many

people. Take a look at the type of party that was going on that night with this group, Pickax Preacher.

With me, Mike Williams. So question. You knew her from previous parties. Tell me about the Halloween party. What was it like? How could she vanish

and nobody notice, Mike Williams?

WILLIAMS: Well, I mean, once again, we`ve mentioned that everyone was in costume, and there was also a lot of people I didn`t even know who came to

the party who know the band but don`t know me personally. So you know, it`s just -- it`s just a bad situation.

GRACE: Everyone, is there a break in the case finally in the search for Chelsea Bruck? She goes to the party dressed as Poison Ivy, Batman`s

nemesis. Even if people saw her, they may not be able to identify her because she`s wearing this Poison Ivy costume, complete with wig.

In the last hours, happening now, police have just discovered what they believe to be a portion of her Poison Ivy costume about 15 miles away at an

abandoned factory. What does it mean?

[20:17:13]UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She was dressed as the Poison Ivy character from "Batman."

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Forensic analysts are now examining clothing and other evidence discovered at this abandoned building and 60-acre site. Their

goal is to find clues in the disappearance of Chelsea Bruck.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Missing from a giant costume party.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Kindhearted and sweet and innocent person.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: Imagine your daughter going to a Halloween party dressed as Poison Ivy, to have a good time. You never see her again. That`s exactly what

happened to the family of the Chelsea Bruck.

But tonight, is there finally a crack in the case? Happening now, police believe that they have found a portion of a Poison Ivy outfit. It`s about

13 miles away, where this huge monster party was held. It looks to be a leaf off of the Poison Ivy costume. We`ve got a picture of that for you.

To Rob Davidek, news director, WWJ. I want to go through what happened that night. So who does she go to the party with, Rob?

DAVIDEK: She went with a couple of girlfriends.

GRACE: And what happened during the party? How did they get separated from her?

DAVIDEK: From what I understand, she met a guy and she was -- you know, the friends wanted to go. She went with this guy, who -- they were seen by

some cars, and she gave her friend that she went there with her phone and her purse. And then that was the last anyone seems to see of her.

GRACE: That`s crazy. Why would she give away her phone and her purse?

Do we have a sketch of the guy, Justin, that we can put up? It`s a very rough, a very rudimentary sketch of who she may have been with, somebody

that she was just talking to. But in a party of 500 people, just because she talked to him doesn`t mean she left with him.

Rob, did they say she left with this guy or they saw her with this guy?

DAVIDEK: They (sic) were just seen with the guy. They were walking towards some cars, but then no one knows what happened after that.

GRACE: You`re seeing a previous Pickax Preacher concert Chelsea attended from YouTube. That`s who`s playing at the party that night. Amidst all of

these party goers, she disappears.

Let`s see that aerial shot, please, Justin, of the floor (ph) plan (ph) -- specialty restoration. Take a look at that. And if you see, that`s over

on the left, the abandoned property. Police got a search warrant for that based on a tip. This investigation has been muddled with false tips, false

claims. Every one has been investigated. This is the first big break in finding Chelsea.

But question to you, Rob Davidek. What`s on the other side of the train tracks? Let`s see the aerial again, please. What`s on the other side of

the train tracks?

[20:20:06]DAVIDEK: Well, again, it`s a vacant area, abandoned. And then again, to the northwest, you see some neighborhoods. You have the freeway,

I-75, and pretty much, it`s straight, you know, south from where this is at, where the search was. If you go south down -- you know, like you said,

11, 12, 14 miles down, it`s just in that area of where they`re searching. So you have the Ford, the Mazda north operations plant to the southeast,

some railroad tracks, and then to the northwest, you have neighborhoods in that area.

GRACE: Rob, what do you know about the tip that led police to this spot?

DAVIDEK: Really, you know what? It just came in as that, right, a tip that they`re following up on. They said they`ve been following up on more

than 600 tips, and that was one of them, and so they moved forward with it.

GRACE: OK, let me see that aerial one more time. Stacey Newman, a point I`m getting at is, across the train tracks from where this restoration

plant is, specialty restoration, a Ford plant -- to the right of it, northeast of it, see that community?

Now, who would think about this abandoned Ford plant? Who would think to go there? Somebody familiar with it, somebody that knows about it, knows

nobody will be around, know they`re safe there if they want to be up to trouble.

Who lives in that community? What is that community, Stacey Newman?

STACEY NEWMAN, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: Well, we know it`s been abandoned and this plant has been abandoned for 50 years. But we did locate that. Close

to this area, there is a mobile park community. And a neighbor that lives there has said if you want to get to this area where this clothing was

found, you would have to know that spot. So it can`t just be a stranger who stumbled onto it. They knew where that was.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

[20:25:52]UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Where`s Chelsea Bruck? The 22-year-old last reportedly seen at a huge Halloween party held in this rural area of

Newport.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Too big of a party, too dangerous. I even told her it was dangerous.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Acting on a tip, during a two-day search here at Freeland (ph) and Peters (ph) in Flat Rock, state police and deputies able

to collect clothing and other evidence.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: Who called in that tip? This is an investigation that has been muddled with false tips from the get-to.

Rob Davidek, people have -- news director WWJ -- what are some of the false tips that the police have been chasing?

DAVIDEK: Well, Nancy, there were a couple of cases that actually -- where -- you know, where there were charges in them. There was one lady out of

Toledo, Ohio. She was charged with lying to a police officer. She said that her ex-boyfriend had killed Chelsea and dumped her body in a cemetery.

There was another, a 19-year-old from the Flat Rock area where this search is going on -- he was charged with lying to a police officer. He says he

saw two men harassing her and drive off with her. So those are the two that they`re trying to find out. They also said, You know what? A lot of

people were drunk at this party, so they don`t know it`s reliable information that they have coming from these folks.

GRACE: Whoa, 136 registered sex offenders in a very tight proximity, just 8-mile radius!

Where is Chelsea tonight? Is there finally a break? I`m very, very curious. Who called in the tip? Who knew? Why would anybody be looking

out there, why would anybody be there on a perfund area, highly polluted, that`s been ordered by the government to be cleaned up of its toxic

ingredients?

To Mike Williams, who hosted the party. Mike, how was the party advertised? Who were you aiming at? Who was invited to the party? How

did they find out about it?

WILLIAMS: It was advertised through Facebook and our band page and just social media. I mean, that`s how I advertise any event that the band does.

GRACE: So thousands of people, thousands knew about the party. There is a $30,000 reward. Tip line, 734-240-7530.
