DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We have news now coming out of Southern California. Associated Press reporting that Glendale police, they have arrested a man who has the dubious name of the "Angel of Death." He is at -- he's under investigation for dozens of deaths at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. This is a story, an investigation that's been going on for a number of years. Apparently the man, whose name is Efren Saldivar, has told police in 1998, according the Associated Press, that he is responsible for many murders. And 20 bodies were exhumed as evidence in civil lawsuits that have to do with this story. We also understand that there'll be a news conference later this afternoon for more information on that.
