Is a fugitive suspected cop killer living out a war simulation?

Police are searching for the suspect in the ambush of two Pennsylvania State Troopers. They say Eric Frein killed Byson Dickson and seriously wounded Alex Douglass. Now we are learning Frein belongs to a military simulation group that reenacts battles from the Cold War.  There are fears that he is using 'survivalist' skills to act out one of those battles in real life. Jason Carroll has the latest on the manhunt.

Keeping Them Honest: Disgraced veterans charity is still in business

The state of California cracked down on the charity Help Hospitalized Veterans, after finding it spending hundreds of thousands of dollars that should have been going to vets, on big time salaries and golf club memberships. That got the charity banned from VA hospitals. However,  Help Hospitalized Veterans is still in business, just under new management. The current CEO is a disgraced former VA administrator with ethics issues of her own. Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin is Keeping Them Honest and describes the situation by saying "this is where the poor management at the VA… and very bad veteran charities intersect."

What does it take to infiltrate a terror group?

When it comes to battling terror groups like ISIS, few tools are as effective as human intelligence. It took years to infiltrate key al Qaeda operatives. The CIA did it with the help of a double agent named Morten Storm.

Storm was a Danish boxer, who was radicalized after he converted to Islam. He quickly rose into the upper ranks of al Qaeda. When the large number of civilian deaths convinced him to turn on the group, Storm helped take out one of its top leaders, Anwar al-Awlaki.

CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank helped tell Storm's story. He is a co-author of the new memoir "Agent Storm: My Life Inside al Qaeda and the CIA."

Advertisers pull out as Peterson prepares to return to the field

The Vikings are hoping to rebound from last week's tough loss against the Patriots with the help of star running back Adrian Peterson. He is set to return to the field this weekend, despite facing a felony child abuse charge.

Some big advertisers are now jumping ship. Castrol Motor Oil says it is dropping its sponsorship of Peterson. Radisson pulled its advertising deal with the Vikings. One of the NFL's biggest sponsors Anheuser-Busch is still on board, but released a statement expressing its disappointment and increasing concern.

Ed Lavandera has new information on a second allegation of child abuse by Peterson involving a different child.

Shocking allegations in Joan Rivers death investigation

It started as a routine medical procedure, but days later the country was mourning the death of Joan Rivers. Susan Candiotti reports on what was allegedly happening inside the out-patient clinic when Rivers was getting what should have been a routine procedure.

Anderson digs deeper into these shocking allegations with Arthur Caplan, who is the founding director of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center and Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin.

For a decade, she thought the crash that killed her boyfriend was her fault. Now regulators say a faulty GM ignition switch may be to blame.

So far, hundreds of people have put in death and injury claims against G-M.

Today the lawyer hired to manage the company’s compensation fund tied more deaths to the defect and said he expects the number to rise.

One of the 19 people killed was Mikale Erickson. His girlfriend, Candice Anderson, was behind the wheel when they crashed in 2004. Mikale died and Candice was seriously injured. The police report says neither was wearing a seat belt and the car's airbags did not deploy.

It was found that Candice had taken unprescribed Xanax the night before the crash, and she was prosecuted for homicide. She later pleaded guilty to felony negligent homicide and was sentenced to five years probation and fined.
