enforcement and leaders that would be able to diffuse whatever was going on. i thought it just did not look good for the community. >> reporter: back to the investigation. law enforcement officials say they do believe that they have the shooter in custody who is behind this, but they are not ruling out accomplices. the investigation continues, john. >> stephanie in ferguson. thanks. so president obama making the insiders chuckle at the gridiron dinner. gathering of the elite not open to cameras. the president was heard predicting he could get more laughs not because he is funnier, but because weed is legal in d.c. his words. he marvelled at how advanced hillary clinton has become joking he did not know you could get your own server in your home. he visited a wounded warrior in arizona. friends and volunteers finished

his close friend susan berman shot execution-style at her home in 2000. a source told cnn that he is being held on a capital murder charge in relation to the berman case. no one has been charged in the case. recently the district attorney in los angeles reopened the investigation. of course, the hbo documentary, the jinx has new details. a new yorker from a millionaire family. tied to three different investigations in three different states. including the disappearance of his wife and the killing and dismemberment of an elderly neighbor. listen to the director about the jinx. >> bob durst has been accused of many crimes over many years. that's what makes him the most unusual of all suspects. this is not a one-time event that people are associating with. they are saying this is a guy for whom murder is an option.
i found him very engaging. i would say charming. he's very funny. yet, you cannot be unaffected by the feeling of shaking bob's hand and recognizing while that's happening that this is a hand that he used to dismember a person. >> reporter: new evidence emerges in the documentary like the letter. they compare it to anonymous letter presumably sent by berman's murderer. the handwriting is almost identical. even the misspellings. compelling evidence we will hear more about. another tip from the law enforcement source said the reason the fbi moved in when it did is because they believe durst was about to flee the country. they tracked him to a new orleans hotel checked in under a false name. three more teenagers arraigned in brooklyn for the

well. after the u.s. stocks came off a rough week. all posting a third weekly loss. the dow and s&p are now sitting in the negative for the year. why is that? a strong dollar is one reason behind the slump. the dollar at a 12-year high versus the euro. it is great for u.s. travelers for europe. it is bad news for u.s. multinational companies because a stronger greenback hurts businesses that make a chunk of profits overseas. it makes it harder for american companies to compete abroad. european goods are cheaper than american exports. that is why you see the volatility. >> a sign of a stronger economy, but be careful. thanks alison. the small island chain of vanuatu ravaged by a cyclone. the aid begins to arrive. we are live from the devastated islands coming up. major: ok fitness class! here's our new trainer ensure active heart health. crowd: yayyyy!

that has been just pummeled by the worst storm people here tell me in generations. what you have across the capital city is trees snapped in half buildings, a large number of residences damaged, if not destroyed. the government here has just projected they are expecting at least 70% of the population of this island country to have been displaced by this storm. they just raised the death toll. it has taken them more than three days to find that five more people have been killed on another one of the islands. they are still having a tremendously difficult time trying to reach the more than 80 islands that make up the country. just trying to learn the scale of the damage and potential scale of the loss of life is an enormous logistical challenge. >> an island chain of dozens of
islands spanning the size of connecticut. there are still islands out there yet to be contacted at all? >> reporter: they are relying on planes flying over some of the islands to try to assess the scale of the damage from the sky. we are hearing it may take until wednesday to reestablish telecommunications with some of the islands. if somebody is hurt on them i'm told there is only one real functioning hospital in the whole country. that is here in port vila the capital, where i'm located right now. there has been progress here. spots of electricity. a lot of roads have been cleared. the airport is working here. the air force cargo planes from new zealand and australia flying in. the first commercial flights come in. if somebody is hurt on the far flung islands, they need either a boat or a plane to bring them in here and not all of these islands have been reached yet.

foreign minister said there is a lot of technical discussion and issues to be done here. secretary kerry framing it differently. saying he feels yes, there are some technical issues to discuss, but really it is all a case of political judgments at this stage. expected to go to brussels later today to brief the french, germans and british on the progress of the talks. it doesn't appear we are in a final phase and rush for the frame framework deadline by the end of march. something substantive under way. >> two and a half hours and counting. political judgment or matter of political will. nic robertson, thanks. breaking overnight, three teenagers out on bail in london after they were arrested trying to join isis. the two 17-year-olds and one 19-year-old were stopped by turkish officials.
