And I thought this was going to be an organized and easy day (Tuesday)! All we had to do was live shots at the coliesum where the children and mothers are staying and then drive down to Eldorado to get video of those parents who remained on the ranch.... entering and exiting the building where DNA cheek swabs were to be conducted.

Ha! If only we saw the train wreck ahead.....

That plan quickly changed when we noticed Texas State DPS Troopers blocked off all entrances to the coliseum and volunteers who were to deliver food being turned away.

We were already off course and it wasn't even noon! Child Protective Services said they had still at least another two days of DNA testing at the coliseum but all our sources, were confirming that something was about to happen.
