The victims blood took center stage in day two of a Texas womans murder trial. A forensics expert testified that Gregg Biggs was still alive after former nurses aide Chante Mallard left the homeless man lodged in the windscreen of her car...after hitting him. Evidence that showed he could have been moving and gasping...when he was left alone in her garage. Max Courtney, Forensics Expert: That blood stain patern of extremely small drops would be consistant with exasperiated blood from the victim. What does that mean? That it would come from a call for, a gasp. Jurors saw pieces of Mallards dismantled car. The car seats, the center console and side panels. All with blood stains.
Max Courtney, Forensics Expert: "This could be from a person with a bleeding hand touching the pocket" . Elizabeth Sanchez reporting. The prosecution says it was here inside Mallards garage where Biggs could have been saved with prompt medical attention. The Defense admits she made the wrong choice but says it was an accident NOT murder. Biggs body was found dumped in a Fort Worth Park. Mallard has pleaded to guilty to tampering with evidence but the question jurors must answer is whether or not a woman whosejob was to help people murderd a man on a Texas highway. The trial is expected to last two weeks and if convicted Mallard could get life in prison. Elizabeth Sanchez, CBS News, Fort worth.))

When the Space Shuttle Columbia broke apart as it soared back to earth back in February--NASA experts immediately suspected a flying piece of debris was to blame.

(NATS, TAKING OFF)


In the strongest statement to date--the panel investigating the disaster said the "most probable cause" was indeed a piece of foam insulaton. The suitcase sized chunk which peeled off from the external fuel tank hit Columbia's wing on takeoff and apparently damaged the heat shield.

That shield could not withstand the extreme temperatures during re-entry. All seven astronauts on board were killed.

The six Americans and one Israeli are seen here during happier times-- these pictures among the last taken taken during the final days of of their lives. Nasa discovered these tapes during its search efforts and deemed them not relevant to the investigation. Here they are waking up.

...UNTIL NOW.
It's the first time that we've been able to demonstrate that we actually can reduce the number, the number of cases of prostate cancer.
THE DRUG IS CALLED FINASTERIDE ...ALSO KNOWN AS PROPECIA OR PROSCAR. IT'S ALREADY USED IN THE U-S FOR TREATING ENLARGED PROSTATE AND BALDNESS.
RESEARCHERS STOPPED A 10-YEAR STUDY WITH ALMOST 19-THOUSAND MEN EARLY BECAUSE RESULTS LOOKED SO PROMISING.
There was a 25-percent decrease in the number of prostate cancers in the men that took finasteride versus placebo.
BUT WHEN MEN IN THE STUDY ON FINESTARIDE DID DEVELOP A CANCER... RESEARCHERS SAY IT CAN BE MORE AGGRESSIVE...
THEY AREN'T SURE WHY.
It's important that we continue to follow the men who develop prostate cancer to see if their tumors behave more aggressively or just happen to look different under the microscope.
BUT THEY SAY THAT ISN'T NECESSARILY A REASON TO AVOID THE TREATMENT. AND DOCTORS DON'T PLAN TO.
I will offer it to the patient, I will tell him what's out there. I will tell him the results of the study and you know I will give him the option.
EXPERTS AGREE PATIENTS SHOULD BE THE ONE TO WEIGH THE PROS OF PROSTATE CANCER PREVENTION WITH THE CONS OF KNOWING IF A CANCER DOES SHOW UP, IT COULD BE MORE AGGRESSIVE. AND THEN DECIDE IF FINASTERIDE IS RIGHT FOR THEM.

Police the driver was taking his rig out this morning when at some point, the bed of the truck started rising. The driver didn't see it happen, so he didn't see this coming as he headed under a highway overpass. The accident left the bed stuck under the bridge, a busy boulevard closed, and, presumably, one embarrassed driver. There was no damage to the bridge, and the roadway was re-opened a short time later.
