Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The Supreme Court today ruled that immigration hearings for suspected foreign terrorists cannot be open hearings.
The decision preserves the government's efforts to secretly detain foreigners under investigation.
This, as officials discover that terrorist activity may be more widespread than first believed.

(NARR:)

When investigators searched Richard Albert Ricci's trailer park - they left with more than they came with.
Ricci's father-in-law tells CBS News investigators seized a 12-inch knife from his tool shed - as well as a tan golf cap from his kitchen.
The hat is similar he says to the one police say Elizabeth Smart's kidnapper was wearing. But he says, it hadn't moved form his kitchen in weeks.
As for the knife - he says his tool shed is locked - and Richard Ricci doesn't have a key.

(COWAN ON CAM:)

SUPER: LEE COWAN, CBS NEWS "Police have NEVER indicated a knife was used in the crime. In fact Elizabeth's 9-year-old sister described the suspect as carrying a small handgun. But they are two more pieces to a puzzle that seems to be growing by the day."

(NARR:)

Investigators continue to focus on Ricci's 1990 white Jeep Cherokee. They say someone put hundreds of miles on the car the week Elizabeth Smart disappeared - and so far, aren't satisfied with Ricci's answers.
Elizabeth's family says search teams have been scouring areas hundreds of miles away-- looking for Elizabeth -- just in case.
SUPER: DAVID SMART, UNCLE
"We do have groups out searching in other states on the borders as well, as far as mileage goes, we're trying to cover all bases."

(NARR:)

Investigators still won't call Ricci a suspect - but even his attorney hints - the pieces are fitting together in a way that make Ricci hard to ignore. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Salt Lake City.))
