Investigators, pressing hard to find the cause of the T-W-A flight 800 disaster, are focusing this morning on a fraction of a second of sound from the 7-47's cockpit voice recorder.
It's the strongest evidence so far of an on-board explosion.
But Investigators say they need to know more before blaming the crash on terrorism.
Elizabeth Kaledin has more.
