All of the deaths occurred in Granbury, 30 miles southwest of Fort Worth. “We had a total of 97 homes out of 110 that suffered severe damage,” said the town’s Mayor Pro Tem Nill Hulett on AC360° tonight.

An FBI agent tells CNN's Randi Kaye that Michelle Knight was beaten with hand weights while held captive for more than a decade in Ariel Castro's house. But she doesn't need facial reconstruction as previously reported.
The agent also clarified reports about a hierarchy among the women when they were in captivity. At the hospital they were walking around together and seemed equally concerned about each other.
The agent also mentioned that the only reason Gina DeJesus and Knight didn't follow Amanda Berry out of the house the day she escaped was because they feared Castro, and not because they didn't trust Berry.
Michelle Knight was 21 when she vanished in 2002. After 11 years, she was found in Ariel Castro's Cleveland house with Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. The three women were allegedly tortured, raped, and mentally abused by their captor.
While residents remember Berry and DeJesus disappearing, they aren't as familiar with Knight's case. One neighbor told CNN that people thought she may have left town; her family also thought that was a possibility. Because she was an adult, authorities may have assumed that too.
Cleveland police removed Knight's name from the FBI's missing persons database just 15 months after she was last seen. The FBI has said it couldn't find her mother and was unable to confirm Michelle was still missing.
According to the police report, Knight told officers Castro got her pregnant and then abused her as a means of aborting the baby. She said he starved her for at least two weeks then he repeatedly punched her in the stomach until she miscarried.
Bicycles. Barbed wire. A chain.
Those are of just some of the items found in kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro's Cleveland yard, according to photographs taken over the weekend by a neighbor and obtained by CNN.
The neighbor asked not to be identified and said that he took the photographs because he wants people to know what's there.
The images show a cluttered yard.
A garage sits in the background, while basketball nets, a ladder and what looks to be a pile of debris rest in the foreground.
One of the photographs shows a thick spool of barbed wire; another shows a chain.
While Gina DeJesus was missing, her alleged captor, Ariel Castro, was comforting her family. CNN's Randi Kaye reports.
Kidnappers and their victims often develop complex relationships that seem unfathomable on the surface. Former LAPD psychologist Kris Mohandie calls a victim's attachment to a kidnapper primitive, and part of survival.
In some cases, Stockholm Syndrome is a factor in that bond. It can be the reason victims don't try to leave even when they have the opportunity to escape. Fear and a sense of having no power are also part of the emotional turmoil that can prevent someone in captivity from breaking free.
CNN's Randi Kaye reports on cases where the victims experienced brainwashing or psychological trauma.
CNN's Randi Kaye reports on dogs that are specially trained to detect bomb vapors over incredible distances. She traveled to Auburn University to see how the program works.
Researchers call them vapor wake dogs because of their ability to find explosives before bombs are placed somewhere – like inside a backpack on a person moving through a crowd. The skill is so unique that the university hopes to patent it.
Puppies begin training at an early age, and the school has its own breeding program. They typically work with Labradors and Spaniels. Paul Hammond, whose company IK9 is working with Auburn, explains that a dog's olfactory system is 220 million scent cells compared to a human's five million scent cells.
