CNN Presents: How to Catch A Serial Killer – Sunday, Feb. 5

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin reports on a mystery that began in small towns across the Midwest.  Several young girls went missing.  Some were found murdered.  Others were never found at all.  And all of these cases went unsolved.  Investigators believed only one man knew what happened.  To get answers, it would take a risky, unusual plan: send a convicted drug dealer undercover into a dangerous prison to befriend an alleged serial killer.  At stake: answers, peace for grieving families, and one man’s freedom.

CNN PRESENTS: How To Catch A Serial Killer airs  Sunday, Feb. 5 at 8:00pm, 11:00pm, and 2:00am.  All times Eastern.

Soledad O'Brien and panel dissect Mitt Romney's 'mistake'

Starting Point anchor Soledad O'Brien and panel examine Romney's message on entitlement programs, 'safety nets' and the fall out from his comments on the 'poor.’

National Journal Editorial Director Ron Brownstein says, “Just to be clear, I think the core point is, when Mitt Romney said to Soledad – I'm going fix the safety net if there are holes in it. The essence of his agenda on these issues has been to retrench spending and to retrench the federal role on these issues.”

O’Brien follows up, “It looked contradictory to what we know.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.

Piers Morgan Tonight: Rick Santorum on Mitt Romney's gaffe

Less than two days after Mitt Romney suggested he doesn't care about poor people, former Senator Rick Santorum had a chance to share his reaction, in a live interview with Piers Morgan last night: "This is occupy Wall Street kind of talk," said Santorum from Nevada. "A president cares about everybody!"

Joining Piers Morgan in advance of Saturday's upcoming caucus, Santorum went on to address the former Massachusetts governor directly, denouncing his recent comments: "To suggest that you don't care about them as long as they have some safety net, is something that I reject, outright!"
