Police have found bones on the property of Phillip Garrido.  They've been searching his home looking for evidence in the disappearance of two more girls. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping Jaycee Dugard and holding her for 18 years. She has been reunited with her family. We'll have these new developments. Plus, are police closing in on a suspect in the murder of Yale grad student Annie Le?

    I like Lady Gaga's music, but her fashion isnt exactly what i would call 'fashion forward', more like 'fashion strange'

    Tonight's "Shot" is great. The little girl is adorable and her dad deserves "father of the year" type honors. Hugs can make everything better when you're three!

    in many states, OB/GYNs are giving up obstetrics because the insurance is simply too high. This has happened to a few of my friends in CT.

    Malpractice insurance has to be a big reason why medical insurance is so high. Why don't they charge like they do for car insurance? If you have a clean record you pay less. Also to Jo Ann's point, why aren't there ways to check a doctor's record?

    These law suits in the Medical professions are part of the problem there. the cost of those extra test$, is alot. To think that your health is taken advantage of their like that....really sad.

    I hope that it gets worked out in some way for you all.

    RIP Mary Travers. @>–

    I agree with President Carter. Some of the protests are racially motivated. If they were not racially motivated why did they not come out during the Bush years and have tea parties after all the deficits began under Bush, Tarp was introduced by the Bush administration and the Bush administration expanded Medicare,the socialist gvnt run program. Where were the tea baggers during the Bush administration???????

    Great story by Randi-Kaye.

    But very sad story for the doctor. I can't believe this doctor was sued given the special circumstances.

    My friends who are doctors, do say that they do practice "defensive" medicine and complain about how high their malpractice premiums are.
    Although i believe that true malpractice needs to be litigated, I think we are all paying a high price for senseless litigation shown in this particular story.

    If I were in that patient's position, I would be eternally grateful to Wendy Fried. She saved that woman's life and the life of her baby. You can live without a uterus, i know a few women who do everyday.

    After reviewing the facts, that woman should have thanked the doctor for saving her life.

    I know she can't have anymore children and that is a sting to her but she is alive, thank God.

    I wonder if PETA is going to get in on the act with the Yale student since they said something about the way the mice were being treated that might have upset the killer?

    Everyone's insurance has increased by 13 percent or more.

    Where can people go to find out if their doctors have been sued before, and can you find out if they've lost these cases?

    In America you are guilty AND the ruined if the police say you are the one regardless of whether you did it or not. The whole idea of innocent until proven guilty no longer exists. It was replaced by "if you say something enough times and loud enough it becomes fact."

    This Tech janitor at Yale knew his victim, made advances towards her, then raped her and murdered her by strangulation. When are we going to 'take seriously' the safety of our daughters. I have 2 daughters, 1 in University and the other in High School. I'm sick of the lack of attention towards women and children being abused/raped/murdered. Please ask Obama to make this a National Priority. Thanks

    Why does it take so much time to determine if bones found in Garrido's yard are animal or human?

    Sorry to post two such similar comment prev, didn't see the "waiting for moderation" note so thought first comment didn't post.

    Cyril Wecht and Candace Delong seem to be in agreement about how the crime took place and what evidence there might be, DNA, hair, etc. How are the 75 surveillance cameras positioned? Authorities know were Raymond Clark is, but as a person of interest does he have to check in with them?

    couldn't crime passion be fueled by hatred as well? Everyone keeps suggesting that the killer must have wanted her. what if the killer hated her instead. Really, the speculation...

    I agree that not all of the protests against healthcare are based on prejudice, but racism is a fact – unfortunately.

    There is need for tougher laws to protect women from these socio-paths who are bend on eliminating them from earth. How will someone live with a clear conscience for killing such a innocent person. Hope the family of Annie Le and her Fiance gets all the comfort they need and they recover from this devastation.

  38. Anthonia-Bay Area

    I wonder if the Yale officials ever took the newspaper article that Annie Le wrote a few years ago about safety on campus...if not they should do their parts in getting that safety took care of..!

    In the US, you are guilty until proven innocent. Ask any prosecutor.

    I am so sorry about the loss of Ms. Travers. We also lost Henry Gibson, that lovely, funny little man from the Laugh -In days who was always spouting wonderfully hilarious poetry. I loved that guy.

    Why do all the commentators refer to the possible killer as "he" or a male? Isn't it possible she was killed by a woman?

    September 16, 2009 at 10:41 pm |
  44. Heather - Spokane, WA

    All of this evidence proves that Annie Le's murder was done by someone she knew and that it was a romantic crime too. Whether it was this guy or not, she knew her killer well.

  45. Toan T. - BC, Canada

    We are all shocked and sorry for Annie Le's death. I hope this tragic event puts us more alert and will help us pursue a better way at handling security to keep people safe late at night.

    They have the video of everyone who comes in and out. They have DNA. they will narrow it down soon. You can bet on it.

    It was an inside job done in a unexspected reaction by a criminal that doged the background check.

  48. Jacqueline, NY

    Spontaneously, suggests to me that maybe the killer was surprised by her presence? Perhaps he was court off guard? Maybe?

    Has Annie Le's family released or fiance released a statement? How are they doing?

    September 16, 2009 at 10:38 pm |

    From the sound of the facts let out to the media so far, that there should be enough DNA to locate the person who killed Annie Le.
