Court documents reveal shocking details about a 12-year-old Detroit boy found in his father's basement after going missing for 11 days. The boy claims his stepmother put him there as punishment after accusing him of lying about the grueling workouts he was forced to endure. The story made national headlines when the HLN's Nancy Grace broke the news to the father that his son was found alive. Susan Candiotti has the latest on this bizarre story.
Outrage is growing in a California community after a court orders a man who admitted raping at least 40 women to live there. Christopher Hubbart is known as the "Pillowcase rapist" and he spent decades in a state mental hospital. Hubbart raped many of his victims after he was released from a mental hospital in 1979. Stephanie Elam looks at how residents are fighting to make sure the same thing doesn't happen in their community.
John Walsh spoke to Anderson and questioned 'how many people do you need to rape in California before they say you can no longer walk the streets?'
Last night on AC360, Anderson revisited one of Governor Rick Perry's more controversial comments on immigration:
"You either have an incredibly inept administration or they are in on this somehow, now I hate to be conspiratorial but I mean how do you move that many people from Central America across Mexico and then into the United States without there being a fairly coordinated effort?"
Today, Governor Perry tried to clarity those remarks. Anderson looks into that explanation along with President Obama's reason for not visiting the border during his trip to Texas.
Anderson discussed the politics of the immigration crisis with Texas Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar and documentary filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas.
Last night, Gary Tuchman reported from the Guatemalan border, where U.S. bound immigrants are paying $1.30 to take a rickety raft across a river into Mexico. The dangers don't end there. Gary is following the trail that countless immigrants are using to travel north through Mexico while putting their lives at risk in hopes of reaching America.
Gary mentioned the train that many immigrants use on this journey derailed. Karl Penhaul spent time on board and shows why it is nicknamed the train of death.
