Saturday on CNN: Murdered beauty queen and the priest

A Texas beauty queen is murdered on Easter Sunday and 53 years later, the only suspect, the priest who was the last to see her is still a free man. That's despite the fact that other priests, local police and the Texas Rangers say John Feit is the murderer. But they are helpless to do anything.

The reasons why are unique and infuriating to many people. Law enforcement officials consider the evidence overwhelming and plentiful. And people who used to be authorities in the Church who volunteered to testify said Feit admitted killing Irene Garza.

We found John Feit in Arizona, now married and a former priest, and he was very surprised to see us.

Don’t miss the one-hour Anderson Cooper Special Report, "Beauty and the priest" on Saturday night at 8 and 11 p.m. ET.

Tonight on AC360: Sexual misconduct allegations center around Ft. Hood sergeant

According to his own lawyer, military prosecutors are investigating accusations against a Ft. Hood sergeant once assigned to an artillery battalion at Ft. Hood, the nation’s largest military base.

Joseph Jordan told CNN that his client, Sgt. First Class Gregory McQueen, was suspected of “pandering” and that a military prosecutor had said McQueen is under investigation for prostitution. Jordan told CNN his client would “fight the charges” but also acknowledged that a military prosecutor had offered McQueen a deal, “if he would give up other members of the prostitution ring.”

No formal charges have yet been announced against McQueen but the incident is one of a string of recent accusations of sexual misconduct that have rippled through the American military. Most recently, an enlisted man at West Point was accused of taking photographs of women cadets while they were taking showers.

Tonight on AC360: Inside the Doomsday Preppers movement

We’re learning new details about the hostage rescue in Alabama. Law enforcement officers were able to see inside the underground bunker where a 5-year-old boy was held hostage for nearly a week by slipping a camera into the hideout, an official tells CNN. An FBI rescue team in Midland City raided the bunker Monday and when it was over the boy named Ethan was free, his kidnapper Jimmy Lee Dykes was dead.

The FBI team practiced the rescue operation nearby with a mockup bunker, law enforcement sources said.

The chief negotiator for the local Sheriff’s office told the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hatewatch that Dykes was a "survivalist type" with "anti-America" views.

Tonight on AC360: Escape from the FLDS

We have been coming to the twin towns of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona for many years covering stories about the thousands of devoted followers of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who live, govern and police the towns. Also known as the FLDS, members of the breakaway Mormon sect openly practice polygamy.

Each time we come here, we are noticed the minute we drive into either town. These are not the kind of towns where outsiders would have a reason or need to stop. There aren't any shops, restaurants or businesses that cater to the outside world. So the minute an outsider does arrive, they are noticed and met with skepticism. Children ride horses and are dressed like everyone else, in traditional FLDS clothing. They are controlled and ruled by their imprisoned prophet, Warren Jeffs. You don’t see children playing with toys or riding bikes. They are usually found working on homes or in fields with their parents. FULL POST

Tonight on AC360: Baby Audrina defies the odds

The odds were stacked against Baby Audrina. She had open heart surgery the day after being born, because she was born with part of her heart beating outside of her chest.  Audrina has a rare birth defect called ‘ectopia cordis’ where the heart is abnormally located either partially or totally outside the chest.

The instigator in the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax?

There are still many questions surrounding Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend. The Notre Dame linebacker hasn’t spoken publicly about the scandal since Deadspin.com broke the story Wednesday, but he did release a statement saying “to realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.” According to reports in Deadspin, ESPN and others, the instigator was a man named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. CNN hasn’t been able to confirm those reports. But tonight on AC360, you’ll hear from Tuiasosopo’s uncle. CNN also caught up with his father.
