patty didn't kill him. i did. - we'll be processing your release. - so you know i'm innocent? - your father gave us a statement. he killed connor. he...and your mother. she reacted to the news you were sleeping with him, and acted out of rage, and... - it's my fault for being with connor, anyway. - no, it's not your fault. don't believe that. - why should i believe you about anything?
- detective. we're not letting her go until we're all finished. - she's a 17-year-old girl. we accused her of murder. she's alone in a holding cell. - yeah, where she's gonna stay until the voided arrest process. that's what we do. - if frank's statement will get it to trial, there's nothing left for us to do. - understand her intent. - patricia's intent? as a mother, i can almost get my head around her intent. - no, you can't. she's not you. - you know, you should have been a shrink like your father wanted. - serena, i don't care about complaining husbands and cheating wives and treating people with nervous acne. but i am driven to understand why some people are so different that they disrupt our sense of all behavior and logic. - and you'll do whatever it takes. - i don't buy that patricia killed to protect her child.
- why not? - it's not who she is. - and who is she? - we don't know. ms. caruso, your husband has told us everything-- how you called him from connor's on mia's phone. - don't blame him for lying. he is desperate to save mia. i mean, maybe he's right. maybe we should sacrifice ourselves for the sake of our child. - miss caruso, this tells us that you were present when connor died. he cut his hand... clutching... at this earring. observe, if you will. you see that?
see that? same... - i've noticed since then you've worn clip-ons. would you remove them? so when you struggled, connor pulled this earring out of your ear. - okay, so what-- what happened that night? you, um, somehow wound up with mia's cell phone, and you intercepted a text message from connor that was meant for mia. - filth. he bragged. he described mia's first orgasm in lugubrious detail. - but we have the text right here,
ms. caruso. this is what he wrote. "your words, style, and structure, mia, "are gifts touched by god's wand. "nothing is owed to a mother who has suppressed and denied your talent." filth? - considering the purpose, i'll stick with "filth." - even i would have to admit that mia's writing is not only superior to yours, but-- - you're a cop. you can't judge what i create. i don't care what you think. but you did care... what connor thought, didn't you? - connor wanted le mot juste. flaubert. sylvia plath. i write tough. not the sop you see on oprah. it sells. that is why i'm running the place. - don't you feel that mia has a special gift? - connor said what he said to get laid.
a decade ago, i learned exactly how he works. okay, you want the whole story? i didn't kill connor. forrest did. - but you struck him before forrest got there. - yeah, but when forrest got there, connor moved. forrest and i both saw it. so forrest took his head, and he slammed it into the floor. and he never moved again. - that was a muscle contraction. that's a function of rigor mortis. your blow actually did kill connor james. and for reasons that are far less noble than you'd like us to think. - you've gone from a mother trying to frame her daughter to accusing the ex-husband who still loves you. - i think patricia is finally starting to arrive at reality.
it's time she heard her rights. - you're a stickler for behavioral theory. listen to this. "these individuals can have "a grandiose view of themselves, "and demand excessive admiration. "they maneuver well in difficult situations, "but their self-esteem is fragile. "any threat to their self-image might agitate or even enrage them." - oh, that's right out of the psych textbook. yeah, narcissistic personality disorder. it's a psychopathology that fits our patricia to a "t". - or a sign of the zodiac.

>> reporter: police take any investigation seriously when someone is hurt, but when the victim is a police officer there is intensity in the search. the search for andrew barrientos involved police in san diego, the chp, the department oft justice and border patrol. it took andrew barrientos 24 hours to travel exactly 500 miles. from the minimarket at 86 ath and bancroft to where he allegedly shot todd young to this side of the mexican border. if barrientos' ultimate goal was to cross into mexico, he came up with a few feet short. law enforcement were up and down the state looking for barrientos. the fugitive's cell phone signal
was being tracked. that is how police knew he traveled to southern california and the exact right time to ask for the busiest border crossing in the world to be shut down. >> so we can do a car search. they closed the border down and actually going through checking cars when he fled from one car and was later taken into custody. >> reporter: barrientos was armed and not alone at the time. police say they were able to arrest him along with a male companion without further violence. oakland detectives were on plane headed to san diego preparing to bring barrientos 500 miles north to face some very serious criminal charges. those charges include two counts of attempted murder of a police officer and two counts of carjacking. the car barrientos is alleged to have used to flee the scene was

foot? >> reporter: what is interesting and this is great police work the officer spotted barrientos in the passenger seat of the car that drove by. there are thousands upon thousands of people who cross every day. this officer all he had was a photo of barrientos and was able to spot him through that crowd. >> there was someone with him. have police released that person's name? >> reporter: yes. 23-year-old gustavo silva. right now police aren't saying whether or not mr. silva is from the bay area. what we do know is the suspected getaway car is registered out of oakland. >> police found a gun in that car as well? >> yeah. they found a nine millimeter pistol and right now they can tell us the weapon used to shoot officer young was a nine millimeter. they are not saying whether or not this is the same good evening that was used to shoot officer young.

>> it is critical. it could go either way at this point. the longer he is able to survive the better his chances are. so he is still very much on the edge. >> reporter: at highland hospital the chief joined young's fellow officers holding vigil and offering support to young's wife and young children. >> he is a fighter. he is in good shape. he is a young man. >> reporter: young has worked for the fremont pd for the past six years before that as an officer in newark for ten years. on friday he came to oakland to make an arrest in a series of crimes in fremont when the suspect shot him. this is the first time in almost 20 years an officer from fremont has been critically wounded in the line of duty. chief stekler said it is hard for the whole department. >> our hope is he will come back and be a full time productive police officer.
right now we want to get through a step at a time. >> reporter: because more surgeries are planned, a blood drive is being held for officer young. you can donate at five bay area red cross donations, pleasant hill, oakland, pleasanton, san jose and fremont. call the american red cross. officer young is here listed in critical but stable condition. monty francis, nbc bay area news. in other news the governor declared a state of emergency in yuba county because of a fire that burned nearly 1,000 acres. no structures have burned. the fire was reported around 4:00 yesterday afternoon and burning in the tahoe national forest. that is north of grass valley. when we come back, never been seen before. we've got new pictures of the "titanic." and laura behnke takes you out to the ballpark. >> it was feeling down right
