Progress is being made on two relief wells in the Gulf. Retired Admiral Thad Allen, who’s leading the government response to the disaster, said today one well is "very close" to being completed, and would be ready in early or mid-August. Rig workers are drilling 100 feet at a time until they intercept the broken well at the right place, Allen said.
But what if they miss? Tom Foreman has the answer to that question tonight on 360°.
We're also looking into a plan to measure just how much oil is leaking into the Gulf, where it's going and what it's doing to the region. It's called "Deep Spill 2." The cost: $8.4 million. The proposal was put together by a team of researchers. They never got a response from BP on their first proposal two months ago. They're trying again.
In crime and punishment, we're following the arrest of a suspected serial killer. For decades, police in Los Angeles have been trying to hunt down the Grim Sleeper, nicknamed for taking long breaks between attacks. Today they believe they caught their man. We'll have the details.
