CNN's Brooke Baldwin spoke to the father of a 13-year-old autistic child whose parents received an anonymous letter suggesting the boy's parents 'euthanize' him. James Begley shared with Baldwin that the police are now conducting an ongoing investigation into who wrote and sent the letter.
When asked what he'd say to the person, Begley said, "Physically, I think I would need some restraint... you know, because I might try to physically kill the person." "But to say something to this person, to be honest, I think it would be an utter waste of time."
After the Supreme Court’s monumental decision on voting rights, D.C. Congresswoman Eleanor Norton tells CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that she challenges her “Republican colleagues to fix this formula.”
Steak Shapiro, one of the fired morning show hosts of Atlanta sports radio station 790 the Zone spoke with CNN's Brooke Baldwin about his firing. Shapiro acknowledge the poor taste of his joke mocking former New Orleans Saint player Steve Gleason, who has Lou Gehrig's Disease.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin talks to Jackie Sing, who was born and raised in Moore, Oklahoma. His house was severely damaged but is still standing. Sing said he’d gladly trade places with neighbors who lost homes, especially a young couple with a newborn baby.
Three women who were missing in separate cases have been found together in Cleveland, police said. A 52-year-old man was arrested.
One of the women called 911 after breaking out of the house where she had been living.
"Help me; I am Amanda Berry," she said, her voice distraught in an audio recording of the call. "I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years. And I'm here and I'm free now."
CNN's coverage of the story includes Brooke Baldwin (@BrookeBCNN) anchoring CNN Newsroom 2-4pmE from Cleveland today.
