((RICHARD ALLEN DAVIS, ACCUSED KILLER: FINALLY I REALIZED WHAT I HAD DONE. SHE WAS STILL ALIVE.
A tape made by police of Richard Allen Davis confessing to the abduction and killing of 12 year old Polly Klaas. The disturbingly candid tape was released by the superior court. On tape Davis describes how he climbed through a window of Polly's home, took her and eventually strangled her.
DAVIS: I STRANGLED HER WHILE WE WERE OUT AND SHE WAS COMING BACK TO THE CAR TO GET BACK IN. POLICE: YOU STRANGLED HER? DAVIS: YEAH. POLICE: WHAT DID YOU USE TO STRANGLE HER? DAVIS: A PIECE OF CLOTH? As jurors in the Davis trial watched the tape tuesday, one cried and the others appeared grim-faced. Before the tape was played jurors were told that Davis decided to confess after he learned police had found his palm print in Polly's bedroom. The klaas family called the tape self-serving.
JOE KLAAS/POLLY'S GRANDFATHER: HE WAS ACTING, PRETENDING TO BE IN ANGUISH WHILE CHAIN SMOKING AND DRINKING HOT COFFEE.
Davis is accused of kidnapping Polly from her bedroom while the girl and two of her friends were having a sleep-over. That was in October of 1993. On the confession tape, Davis claims he took Polly because he was high on drugs and alcohol and said he did not molest the child.
Prosecutors say they do not believe all of Davis' story. Instead they say the tape shows a man trying to make the most of a desperate situation. Manuel Gallegus, CBS News Los Angeles.))

The stuffed bear was supposed to return with postcards, souvenirs and notes the students could use in their lessons.
Unfortunately Mr. Poo's travels ended abruptly in Frankfurt, Germany when customs agents shredded the toy after they suspected he was stuffed with contraband. The bear came up clean and the agents did at least return his flight log.
