[***ANCHOR TAG***] The National D-Day Memorial Foundation has filed for bankruptcy protection. The Foundation filed "a Chapter 11 re-organization petition" in U-S Bankruptcy Court yesterday. As Keith Humphry reports the Foundation still owes millions of dollars to the bank, the architect who designed the memorial, and the construction company that built it.

[KEITH ON CART!!!!] The Bankruptcy petition was filed at the 11th hour, with two days of reckoning looming ahead. The Foundation was due in court Tuesday to show cause why it could not pay Byron Dickson, the Architect. Coleman Adams Construction had already won a 1-point-six million dollar judgment against the Foundation. That was 88 days ago. Federal Bankruptcy law sets the clock back NINETY days. The petition filed today is retroactive, taking the matter back to where it stood two days BEFORE Coleman Adams won the judgment against the National D-Day Memorial Foundation. Now Coleman Adams is on equal footing with Dickson and the bank.

To the extent that investigators have been able to confirm Lemons' statements, they say the information has proven to be accurate.
While there was no "false floor" in Bowman's van as a search warrant affidavit indicated, authorities say substantial modifications had been made to the interior of the vehicle.
They say the term "false floor" may have been chosen by the officer taking the statement.... not Lemons.
Garrison Bowman has not been charged in the case. He denies any involvement in the Short family murders.
