JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL

Suspected Child Abuser Leads Police on High-Speed Chase

Aired July 10, 2012 - 19:00   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I want to go to -- I want to go to Jane Velez- Mitchell. And Jane, you know, we`re talking about this whole thing with the Web, how much time, in our business, we spend online. What do you do to unplug?

JANE VELEZ-MITCHELL, HOST: Oh, my gosh. Well, I have my little rescue dogs. I love running around and playing with them. They get me out into the park every day, rain or sleet.

I have to tell you, I wrote about Internet addiction in my book, "Addict Nation." And one of the most incredible things that I learned, studying Internet addiction, is that it super-charges other addictions. If you`re addicted to gambling, you can do more online gambling in a couple of nights than you could in a year, practically, in real time.

Ditto for porn addiction. If you`re addicted to porn, you can experience more porn than you ever could in real time. That`s one of the reasons why it`s such a danger. It never goes to sleep. It`s always there. You take it with you wherever you go.

And we`re going to begin tonight with that incredible high-speed car chase in California. We`ve got new information about the driver of that truck and what led to this wild and very dangerous chase. And you won`t believe the back story. It`s absolutely disturbing.

We`re also talking about the high-speed car races between celebrities and the paparazzi. It`s an action-packed broadcast. We`ll bring you the latest next.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

VELEZ-MITCHELL (voice-over): Tonight, a wild car chase that had more than one dramatic ending. We`ll show you the bizarre twist that was right out of an action movie.

Could a frantic 911 call unravel the mystery of a beautiful missing mom? Cops desperately search for Lynn Jackenheimer, and they`re hunting for her boyfriend. The couple went on vacation with her two kids last week, and she hasn`t been seen since. You won`t believe what the boyfriend`s brother told cops in a 911 call. Her friend talks with me live tonight. And I`m taking your calls.

Plus, a devastated mom and dad outraged after their 15-year-old son goes off to Hawaii with a teen adventure group and vanishes in a six-foot wave. The family`s saying the group took their son to an area that was off limits. Who`s to blame? We`ll investigate.

Then, tonight you`ll hear teen heartthrob Justin Bieber`s dramatic 911 call. Cops say they caught the superstar racing along a California freeway, dangerously weaving through traffic at speeds estimated at up to 100 miles an hour in a flashy car that looked like a silver bullet. The superstar claims it was all because the paparazzi were recklessly chasing him. Do celebrities lose their right to privacy when they`re famous? Or are the paparazzi out of control?

And a dog sentenced to death. His only crime: he looks a little like a pit bull. A global fight to save innocent little Lennox.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We`re going to take you to -- where else -- but Los Angeles for a car chase. The person driving the truck is suspected of child abuse. We don`t know that that means that there`s necessarily a child in the truck.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He`s going to try to get in position. There we go. That`s what you got to drive all the way through the pit. Now he hit that tractor-trailer truck.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Right there you can see when he decided he was going to go for it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is very dangerous. Very, very dangerous. We`ve had a number of officers killed in the line of duty this year during chases deploying stop sticks. Up, gone off -- now he`s off the road. Wow.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight, was this a case of attempted suicide? An unbelievable car chase in Los Angeles leaves a trail of destruction. Take a look at it.

Just a little while ago this wild chase involving a Los Angeles physical education teacher behind the wheel. Cops identify him as Kip Arnold. Now, this guy is accused of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

Cops say when he finds out that cops have had him under surveillance, he takes off on police, leading them on a high-speed chase through greater Los Angeles.

Cops thought they had him when they pit maneuvered his truck and sent him spinning, boom, right there into an 18-wheeler. You see that 18- wheeler shuttering. But it wasn`t over. The suspect has other plans and then takes off again.

This is a scene right out of a Hollywood movie. He races off, and the police continue their pursuit until -- get this -- the suspect, driving once again at a high rate of speed, suddenly lurches his truck over the side railing into the air, down a hill, smacked through some trees right into an office building. Unbelievable.

All this happening live on HLN. After tense minutes and an army of rescuers descend on the scene. He`s trapped inside his vehicle. The driver is finally pulled out and rushed away on a stretcher. Only to be arrested because he is, again, a Los Angeles Unified schoolteacher suspected of a lewd act with a minor. And cops say there could be other victims.

Straight out to HLN law enforcement analyst Mike Brooks. You saw this as it happened in real time. I`m astounded that it started as an undercover surveillance operation, cops watching this teacher. And then it turns into a high-speed chase. How did that happen?

MIKE BROOKS, HLN LAW-ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: Well, Jane, apparently they were surveying this guy for about a day. Investigators from L.A. Unified School District and the Bell, California, Police Department, they went to approach him to talk to him because they didn`t have a warrant as of yet for this crime that he`s alleged to have committed.

So they approach him. There`s some words are exchanged. He says something about killing himself and then takes off. Well, the chase goes - - starts off with Bell Police. Then we see California Highway Patrol. They pick it up.

They go on the 405, south on the 110, onto PCH. And that`s where the California Highway Patrol performed a pit maneuver and pitted him out there on PCH. Officers got out, they called -- the troopers got out, they pointed their guns. Looks like there might have been a little bit of negotiation, maybe some contact.

Then all of a sudden, Jane, he pulls off again, heads down PCH, makes a left on Crenshaw, and now he`s going down Crenshaw. And that`s when we saw him go in the left lane. It looks like he gets momentum and then right off the side of the road, airborne into that building.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Oh, man.

BROOKS: Jane, that building is -- is an office for a food distributor. And usually during the day people are out there cooking out in a barbecue area, cooking their lunch, because this happened about -- the chase started about 12:30 Pacific Time, 3:30 Eastern. So we`re lucky that there was no one out there. But you can see a hole in the building in that barbecue area. And then his car was wrapped around the tree. He was trapped inside the vehicle.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Mike Brooks, you see them doing the pit maneuver right here.

BROOKS: Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And they think they`ve got him. He spins around and he goes, boom, right into this vehicle, this giant 18-wheeler, it looks like. Then he takes off again.

I found it fascinating that he was able to, even though they had him once, he takes off again. Are they not allowed to shoot out the tires anymore?

BROOKS: Oh, no, no, no, no. You don`t shoot the tires out, Jane. You can try to put down maybe some stop sticks. But they thought they had him. They had him. Everybody was out. They had their weapons drawn. It looked like they might have been talking to him, possibly. It looked like it was going to be a standoff for a minute. We went to commercial. Then we come right back out, and our viewers saw him heading down the road again.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, listen to this. The school system released a statement about the arrest of this Kip Arnold, who`s a physical education teacher at Southeast Middle School on suspicion of lewd behavior with a former student.

Lisa Bloom, legal analyst for Avo, you also ride these very freeways. They say he has possibly additional victims beyond the one suspicion of lewd behavior charge that he was being investigated for. He`s been with the school district for eight years, worked at a variety of middle schools. Can -- if he is arrested, can prosecutors use this whole scene as consciousness of guilt?

LISA BLOOM, LEGAL ANALYST: Absolutely. Those were the three words that came to mind, Jane, when I saw this today. Consciousness of guilt. If you are accused of a crime or a suspect in a crime, this is the last thing you want to do is take police on a high-speed chase. Because this will be admissible in court.

And a prosecutor can say to the jury, why on earth would this guy go through such risk to try to escape from the police unless he was guilty? Even apparently trying to take his own life and not caring about the lives of others in the process. So this would be exhibit A in his trial, if there is one, on child abuse charges.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Again, this wasn`t a regular chase. Cops say that this guy, Kip Arnold, didn`t want to survive. Listen to this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Today when he left the house, our investigators attempted to make contact with him in Lakewood. So that`s where the pursuit initiated. And when they walked up on the car, he made some statement about being suicidal, rolled up the window and took off.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Jon Lieberman, HLN contributor, investigative reporter, there`s something called suicide by cop. This didn`t happen, but it`s attempted suicide by cop possibly.

JON LIEBERMAN, HLN CONTRIBUTOR: Accused sex offenders will do anything, anything, once they find out their gig is up. This guy knew it was up. And yes, suicide by cop is what popped up to my mind. He wanted police to kill him.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: But they didn`t. They heroically, even at the risk to their own lives, saved his life and pulled him out alive. And now he has to face justice. And now this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I wanted to report a possible murder.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Police in several states are looking for 27- year-old Nate Summerfield and his 33-year-old ex-girlfriend, Lynn Jackenheimer.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Nate is a very dangerous person. He has a violent history.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He made certain statements to the relative that he`d done something to her.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Summerfield`s brother called police and told them that Nate said he strangled Jackenheimer.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He came back and said he strangled her and dropped his kid off and left.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He`s been violent in the past.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He dropped the kids off and took off.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We don`t know where he is. He ditched his cell phone. So basically, he`s on the run.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I just want him to turn himself in and let us know where Lynn is so we can get her home to her little boy and her little girl. They need their mom.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight a manhunt on as we speak to the violent ex- boyfriend of a missing Ohio mom. Her name is Lynn Jackenheimer. They were off on vacation in North Carolina. He comes back and she doesn`t. And he tells his brother, allegedly, according to his brother -- his brother calls 911 says, "Hey, my brother just told me that `I strangled my girlfriend`." What a horror.

Naomi Jackson, you are joining us exclusively tonight. You are a friend of missing Lynn Jackenheimer. I know this has to be hellish for you. Did you suspect that something was off in their relationship when these two went on vacation together?

NAOMI JACKSON, FRIEND OF LYNN JACKENHEIMER: We knew that Nate had been violent in the past. But I never dreamed that anything like this would happen.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I wanted to report a possible murder.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: OK.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: My brother was in North Carolina with his ex- girlfriend. He came back and said he strangled her, and he dropped his kid off and left.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: That`s a 911 call. Did a suspect confess to his brother that he had murdered his ex-girlfriend with whom he was vacationing?

Here`s the beautiful woman, 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer. On vacation in North Carolina with Nathan Summerfield, their 3-year-old son and her 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Police say Lynn was last seen either July 3 or 4.

And then this past Sunday, July 8, the suspect shows up at his family`s home and allegedly makes a shocking confession to his brother that he had strangled Lynn. If true, it wouldn`t be the first time that Lynn was a victim of this man, Summerfield`s, rage.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He is a very dangerous person. He has a violent history. He`s been violent in the past. And we`re just very concerned. We need to know where Lynn`s at.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Straight out to Captain Carl Reichart, Ashland County Sheriff`s Office.

Thank you for joining us, sir. Tell us about the manhunt for this Summerfield. I understand that he`s in a vehicle, you`ve identified the vehicle, could he have dumped that vehicle already? What are you doing to find him?

CARL REICHART, ASHLAND COUNTY SHERIFF`S OFFICE (via phone): Jane, we`re trying to do everything we can along with the authorities down in North Carolina to locate Nathan Summerfield. Also, again, we`re treating these people as missing persons. Hopefully we`ll be able to have a good ending here if she would show up in Ashland and contact her family and then the sheriff`s office here.

We`re doing everything we can to locate Mr. Summerfield. We`ve been working with family and friends. We`ve got an attempt to locate all over the United States. We have pictures of the vehicle. The news media have been a great help with this incident so far.

Again, we really don`t have any evidence to go on right now except for what he told his brother. We have no evidence. We have no basic crime that we can determine right now.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, Captain, let me jump in and ask you a question, because we`re showing the vehicle that he is believed to be in. And the license plate, as well.

Are you searching for this particular vehicle throughout four states? I mean, let`s face it. He -- he was in North Carolina, ends up in Ohio. There`s four states in between. How are you searching for this one very popular car, which I believe is a Honda Civic, a silver or grey Honda Civic. Half the people in America practically have a car that looks like that. How are you trying to find this particular car, sir?

REICHART: You`re absolutely correct. We are trying to find it. Just to mention, it`s a dark metallic grey. It`s a 2009 Honda. We`ve got attempt to locates out with all the local police departments from surrounding states. They have the license number. And through their lead system they can run the license plate, any law enforcement officer can. And they would come back a hit on that vehicle.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: OK, Captain...

REICHART: There will be information he`s a wanted person.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Thank you, sir. And thank you for your time. I know you`re very busy. We want to get to some other aspects of this really, really heart-wrenching case.

Look at this beautiful woman, mother of two. Was there a foreshadowing of a tragic ending with this couple? Look at the suspect`s history of domestic violence against Lynn.

In 2009, he was convicted of choking her. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail. But all 60 days were suspended. Poof, gone. He`s free to go.

And earlier that same year, Lynn had gotten an order of protection against him. According to a warrant he had locked Lynn out of their home while she was naked.

Lisa Bloom, legal analyst for Avo, this is absolutely outrageous that society is essentially telling us choking a woman is not worth a single day in jail.

BLOOM: Are you kidding me? I mean, marijuana possession gets some people five years in jail. Sixty days for choking a woman? And we know that people who are batterers, who are perpetrators of domestic violence tend to escalate if they`re allowed to get off with that kind of a slap on the wrist. So that`s absolutely appalling to me.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Naomi Jackson, you`re a friend of the missing woman. Again, why did she go on vacation with him?

JACKSON: I`m not completely sure. I think Lynn just wanted to have - - just wanted the kids to have a good vacation at the beach. And I think she was hoping that Nate had changed. She had said that he had went to counseling and gotten help. And I think she was just hoping for the best.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, we are hoping that she is found. Our hearts go out to her family. Our hearts go out to you, Naomi.

Look at this man. If you see him anywhere, don`t approach him. He could be dangerous. Call 911.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MICHAEL MADOFF, FATHER OF TYLER MADOFF: We love you. You`re the best of your mother. And you were the best of me.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We were 30 feet off the shoreline, well-protected. At least we thought.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They were hiking on the trail.

They were 30 feet inside of the trail.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: A large wave came out of nowhere. Madoff and a 14-year-old boy were swept into the ocean in different directions.

MADOFF: You will be with us forever.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Outrage and unanswered questions as the search for a teen missing in paradise is called off today. Unfortunately, the Westchester, New York, high school student with such a bright future, Tyler Madoff -- look at this handsome young man. He was kayaking and hiking with an adventure group in Hawaii when suddenly a six-foot wave sweeps in. And when it sweeps out, he`s gone, vanished.

Five other teens rescued, one fighting for recovery in a hospital, but there`s no sign of 15-year-old Tyler, despite days of searching. The varsity football player`s family is criticizing the tour group, claiming they led teens into an area, allegedly, they didn`t have a permit to be in.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MADOFF: The people from Bold Earth Expeditions have shown poor judgment and extremely poor character. None of the Bold Earth people stayed on the site to continue the search for our son, Tyler.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: We reached out to Bold Earth, did not hear back. In one report, the group`s founder said they believe every single person did their absolute best in an unexpected, freak natural disaster.

Straight to Bill Dorman from Hawaii Public Radio.

You are in Hawaii. Set the scene for us. Where was the group when this freak wave, if it was indeed a freak wave, hit?

BILL DORMAN, HAWAII PUBLIC RADIO (via phone): Jane, it really is a tragic situation. Very sad story. It`s on the pretty rugged stretch of the west coast of Hawaii island, near a place called Kealakekua Bay.

People who live over there tell me it`s a very rocky area. There are underwater caves that can be a really treacherous area.

And that characterization of the freak wave coming up, hitting a tidal pool area, things like that do happen around this state. And without passing judgment on what the tour group did or did not do, it does underline the risk that goes along with the natural beauty of Hawaii.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, Tyler was traveling with this adventure tour group, which should have been the highlight of his summer, the kind of trip thousands of American teens long to do every year. But this turned hellish for this family in an instant.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MADOFF: Tyler Vaughan, we love you from the bottom of our hearts. You`re the best of your mother. And you are the best of me. You brought smiles and joy to everybody.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Bill, quickly, is there someone possibly to blame for this?

DORMAN: You know, people being people, I`m sure that blame will want to be apportioned, but also the power of nature and the power of these waves, the unpredictability of this is something that comes out.

The lead editorial in the local paper, "The Honolulu Star-Advertiser," today is headlined "Teach Visitors to Beware Isle`s Natural Dangers." It`s tour groups` concerns, as well, but also the visitors themselves and parents and people being aware of the power and the force of the waves as well as their beauty.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Justin Bieber had to call 911 after a high-speed chase with the paparazzi.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Nine-one-one emergency, what are you reporting?

JUSTIN BIEBER, SINGER: I have, like, five cars following me.

Police say the pop star was driving 100 miles an hour down an L.A. Highway and that four or five cars full of photographers were right behind him.

BIEBER: It`s incredible. I`m kind of still in shock.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Bieber called 911 later and said they`re still following him.

BIEBER: they were being, like, not nice about it. They were just, like, "You waive your rights to privacy because you`re a celebrity."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: The world`s biggest pop star nearly killed speeding down the freeway? What excuse did he give the cops?

Here he is, teen sensation Justin Bieber pulled over by cops in his $100,000 sports car after bolting down the 101 Freeway in L.A. Justin got a speeding ticket.

Listen to the Biebster`s frantic 911 call.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Nine one one emergency. What are you reporting?

BIEBER: I have, like five cars following me.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You know the people that are following you?

BIEBER: No, I don`t.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: OK, what are they doing to you?

BIEBER: They just will not stop following me.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: OK, and what`s your name?

BIEBER: Justin.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What`s your last name?

BIEBER: Johnson.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And of course, last name isn`t Johnson. And those were paparazzi following. What does a high-speed chase look like? Well, we just showed you early on in the show. High-speed chase on some of those very freeways in Los Angeles. But Bieber was allegedly, reportedly, going even faster than this truck being chased. He was reportedly going about 100 miles an hour, according to some observers. I don`t know. I wasn`t there.

Bieber, obviously an international celebrity but come on. He`s only 18. He`s not exactly the world`s most experienced river. He`s also not from L.A. and didn`t apparently know his way around.

City officials called this a tragedy waiting to happen. Justin Bieber`s rep not commenting. Who`s the blame? Give me a holler: 1-877- JVM-SAYS.

Dylan Howard, editor in chief of Celeb Buzz, what do you know? We`ve got the Biebster and we`ve got the paparazzi. Who is at fault here?

DYLAN HOWARD, EDITOR IN CHIEF, CELEB BUZZ: Well, Jane, that`s now the subject of the California Highway Patrol investigation indeed. Justin Bieber has been given a ticket for reckless driving, but the paparazzo at the center of this is currently being searched for by authorities. And indeed if charges under California`s paparazzi laws, he could indeed be jailed for up to five years and fined up to $5,000 although the police department is yet to identify those responsible for tailing Justin Bieber.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes, well, Justin Bieber wasn`t happy with the police saying essentially why did they ticket him? Why didn`t they just -- look at that car. I can`t even speak. That is a silver bullet.

You know, I love the fact that it`s an electric vehicle. As far as I`m concerned I applaud him for that. But oh my gosh, he`s playing the victim here.

I love Justin Bieber. By the way, I saw him perform live when I went to see Nancy Grace on "Nancy with the Stars" and he was one of the feature performers. And he`s so talented. I love him.

But let`s get back to that dramatic 911 call from the Biebster as he tries to explain why the cops gave him a ticket and maybe shouldn`t have. Listen.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Ok. How fast are you going?

JUSTIN BIEBER, SINGER: I`m going 50 before I was driving faster so I could try to get away from them.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Right.

BIEBER: And I got pulled over to myself. And when I tried to explain it to the police officers, they were being like not nice about it. They were just like you waive your rights to privacy because you`re a celebrity.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Now, Rob Shuter, "Naughty but Nice" from Huff Po, city officials have actually compared this to Princess Diana`s tragic death -- and we all know she died in a car crash in Paris some 15 years ago after she was trying to outrun the relentless European paparazzi. Are paparazzi potentially going to lead to another death?

ROB SHUTER, "NAUGHTY BUT NICE", HUFFINGTON POST: It`s a very complex situation Jane. But let me be honest here about what I think. If people are chasing you to take your photograph, they`re not shooting you, they`re not trying to harm you. They want a photograph. Don`t run. Let them take your picture. They`ll get bored. And then you drive on.

You are not going to be able to out-chase the paparazzi. They`re at blame, but Justin`s at blame too. Trying to dash away at 100 miles an hour down the freeway is just dumb. It`s really silly.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And look at that baby face. He`s so cute.

SHUTER: You like him.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I just love him. I do. At one point during his 911 call Justin Bieber does criticize the police, blaming them. Listen to this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What type of car are you in.

BIEBER: I`m in an Fisker.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What kind of car is that?

BIEBER: It`s a Fisker. I was trying to go fast so I could lose these people and I got pulled over.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Ok.

BIEBER: The police told me if they kept following me to call again. I know I`m driving fast, but it`s like they`re the ones being dangerous. He let all the paparazzi just around my vehicle while he was doing the whole citation. He could have at least pulled me to a side parking lot or something. He just did it right in the middle and didn`t care.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: all right. Well, we are going to go to one of the chief defenders of Justin Bieber right now, 14-year-old Zoe, an official fan. Yes, we talked to her parents and they said that she could come on. We`re just going to call her Zoe, by her first name.

Zoe, are you concerned for Justin Bieber`s safety given the paparazzi?

ZOE, FAN OF JUSTIN BIEBER: Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tell me about that.

ZOE: I don`t think that they should have been chasing him down the freeway. And Justin was just trying to get away. But I just want him to be safe.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I know you do. You`re a big fan, right? Do you have all sorts -- I heard you have -- oh, look, right behind you you`ve got Justin Bieber. Look at that.

Zoe: Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. You know, I have to get back -- what`s that?

(CROSSTALK)

ZOE: I have a phone case with him.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Oh. Wow. Ok.

That was some car. I can`t get away from the car that he was driving when he was speeding. He got it as a birthday present on the Ellen show. And I remember watching it and thinking, wow. Look at this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That`s a Fisker Karma.

BIEBER: Is it all electric?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It`s an electric car.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Hold on a second. That doesn`t look like the same car. How many cars does this guy have?

Lisa Bloom, I know you travel these freeways. And I know you have a personal connection to the Fisker. Tell us why it`s $100,000.

LISA BLOOM, ATTORNEY: Yes, my fiancee has one. And it`s an electric car --

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Lucky you.

BLOOM: It`s also a sports car. It`s very sexy. And Justin Bieber had his customized to be covered in chrome. So Jane, it`s like driving a bat mobile covered with a mirror down the freeway. If you`re a celebrity and you don`t want the paparazzi chasing you, perhaps you should choose a less conspicuous car.

Look, I love Justine Bieber, too. He`s adorable. He`s very talented. But he`s 18 years old and he has to learn not to drive recklessly on the freeways because that could endanger all of us.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Look, before we end this -- and I don`t want to end this because I love Justin Bieber, but let`s talk about paparazzi for a second. In California they can, as we mentioned, get fined up to $5,000 if they get too close. And that is because of, well, Exhibit A, this video of supermodel Kate Moss getting harassed at LAX. Watch this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Kate, thank you for coming to visit us. Sorry about the mess.

KATE MOSS, SUPERMODEL: Go away.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Rob Shuter, these guys are out of control often.

SHUTE: They are out of control. And there are laws in place to make sure that this doesn`t happen again. But it`s really hard to feel sorry, for me, for these celebrities that earn millions and millions of dollars. They have a lot of security. And if the worse problems they have is somebody trying to take their picture, I`m sorry if I sound harsh, but that isn`t a bad day for me.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Christmas Eve 2000 just after midnight, Sophia Ulloa, a young mom, just returned home from last minute Christmas shopping when she was stabbed multiple times near her car.

TINA MONTOYA, SOPHIA ULLOA`S MOTHER: I`ve held on 11 years -- going on 11 years. And I still mourn over my daughter and it`s something that you don`t forget. I come out here and I decorate her tree. I call this Sophia`s tree because this is where she was murdered at. And Sophia was standing behind her car in the street holding herself like on the side and pointing down the street, "Go get him. Go get him. Call 911. I`ve been stabbed."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight in JVM`s most wanted, a 20-year-old, beautiful single mom stabbed to death right outside her apartment Christmas Eve, her killer or killers still on the loose. Sophia Ulloa went out to do last-minute Christmas shopping on December 23rd, 2000. That`s right, almost 12 years ago to buy her then four-year-old daughter a scooter.

When Sophia got home around 1:00 in the morning, Christmas Eve she was unloading gifts from her car when her mother heard a blood-curdling scream.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MONTOYA: Sophia was standing behind her car in the street. Holding herself on the side pointing down the street, "Go get him. Go get him. Call 911. I`ve been stabbed." Instead of running to Sophia to ask her questions, I ran back in the house to call 911.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: We are honored to have Tina Montoya, the mother of the murdered woman with us tonight. Tina, our hearts go out to you. We know this is hellish. What have these 11 and a half years been like for you as you still look for your daughter`s killer?

MONTOYA: It`s still the same. Nothing`s changed. The feelings haven`t changed. And as of this day I wish I knew who murdered my daughter. And I have my moments toward, you know, I do still cry for Sophia. And everybody misses her. Her daughter misses her.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: What happened that night? What did you hear?

MONTOYA: I was asleep because both of us had to work the next day. And I heard Sophia -- well, actually, I didn`t know it was her. But we heard screaming outside. When we ran outside, Sophia was standing behind her car and pointing down the street for us to call 911, that she`d been stabbed, to get help. So what I did is I ran back in the house to get the phone because I had a cordless phone so I could go out there and be with her. But I didn`t know -- I couldn`t find the cordless phone, so I still had a phone where I could dial out.

And I was talking to the dispatcher and she told me to stay in the house. And then I kept pleading for them to send somebody out there because my daughter had been stabbed. And I told 911 to hold on a minute and when I went back out there, she was laying behind her car. And I ran back in the house and kept pleading for them to send somebody out there.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I know that`s so difficult for you. And thank you for sharing that painful story.

Detective Ed Rodriguez, you have vowed to find this killer. You apparently watched this beautiful young woman die. You report there were two young men seen fleeing the scene in a dark colored vehicle. Why would somebody want to do this?

DET. ED RODRIGUEZ, LEAD DETECTIVE: Well, it could be for a variety of reasons. Sophia was a very popular young woman. Unfortunately, like other young kids, she was involved in some things that maybe she shouldn`t have been involved in, specifically drugs and boyfriends who were involved in drugs and gangs.

So it`s complicated in that it can go in different directions; complicated in the people that her circle of friends were people that haven`t been very cooperative. So that`s what`s been very troubling about the case is people just haven`t been very forthcoming with the truth.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, Jon Leiberman, we know young women -- beautiful young women often get viewed (ph) they`re not doing anything wrong but sometimes their boyfriends are.

JON LEIBERMAN, HLN CONTRIBUTOR: Right. Regardless of what she was doing, she didn`t deserve this fate. And you know, Tina asked me, she said please don`t forget. And Ed Rodriguez who was in the hospital room that night and basically saw Tina die, he vowed in the hospital that night not to forget.

There are too many cold cases out there that are unsolved. Too many moms like Tina Montoya. That family needs justice and somebody out there has the investigation that can help Ed crack this case. Ed works hundreds of cases, but he`s a little too humble to tell you he won`t forget this one. Tina needs justice.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Jon Leiberman, thank you for bringing us this story. And Tina, our hearts are with you. If we could see you one more time, we want to tell you that we want to do everything we can and often these stories as short as they are result in leads.

Somebody knows something. If you`re watching, end this woman`s nightmare and call investigators.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Tonight, a global outrage, the world waiting and watching hoping that an innocent dog will not be put to death tonight in Northern Ireland. Meet Lennox, a sweet family dog who never attacked anyone, but may be put to death just because he happens to look like a pit bull. A legal battle has raged for two years with hundreds of thousands of people all around the world including celebrity and politicians desperately trying to save this one dog.

Despite all that Lennox could be killed any moment now. Straight out to my very special guest, Victoria Stillwell, host of TLC`s "It`s Me or the Dog". Victoria, this is an absolute outrage, I know you have made this your cause. Tell me why and what you have done to try to save this dog`s life?

VICTORIA STILLWELL, TLC HOST: We have been trying to get in touch and get a meeting with the Belfast city council to help find another solution, the Dangerous Dogs Act that has been in England now for 20 years and in Northern Ireland has shown to be ineffective and not really getting to the real problem of dangerous dogs.

Lennox is not a dangerous dog. But he was taken from the family just because of the way he looks. He is, in fact, an American bulldog lab mix, but unfortunately Belfast city council has refused to move on that stance. Lennox is now being found to be guilty of being pitbull type and is going to be put down in a few hours.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Victoria Stillwell, this dog has not bitten anyone, was with a family, seven years old, never hurt anyone. They come in because of the UK`s Dangerous Dog, and they rip this dog away from the family, and then this global outrage.

I cannot tell you how many e-mails and Facebook posts that we have received, people begging me to do this story. And we`re doing it tonight. And I have to say that this is why I am an animal rights activist because animals need to have rights, they cannot be treated as mere property.

Look at this innocent creature that they`re are going to put down. Victoria, should this become a rallying cry for all the dogs who exist because of human problems, forgetting to spay and neuter. Being too lazy to spay and neuter or breeding for profit.

STILLWELL: Yes, and I think it`s also irresponsible dog ownership as well breeding these kinds of dogs to be vicious, to be aggressive. You know, Lennox is just a family pet. And Lennox was taken through no fault of his but just because of the way he looks.

This is the Dangerous Dogs Act at its very, very worst. And (inaudible) legislations everywhere now and it`s coming to the U.S. as well. It`s already in a few cities in the U.S.

And innocent dogs are being taken away there their families. This is what I have against this because I don`t think it`s addressing the real problem of dangerous dogs. I am all for keeping the public safe but any breed of dog can be dangerous in the wrong hands. And we need to be looking at the deed and not the breed.

And Lennox, for me, this whole story, Lennox is the poster child for this story because this has got to change otherwise more innocent dogs are going to be taken away from their family and the family is going to suffer because believe you me, the bonds family have --

TOM HOLLAND, FITNESS EXPERT: You don`t need a lot of time, you don`t need a lot of equipment. Don`t waste your money on expensive equipment that you`re not going to use.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

HOLLAND: If you have dumbbells, great; if not, grab those. I don`t know why suddenly someone said you had to go to the gym for an hour.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

HOLLAND: You`re going to do work-out here that would take the time it takes you to get to the gym.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And tonight in our adventure to slim, fitness guru, Tom Holland shows us simple moves that pack twice the punch. Ok. You have seen us exercise week after week, showing you how to put it all together. This is twice the workout at half the time. How do we do it?

HOLLAND: Exactly. You take the exercises we`ve already done, a lunge and a bicep curl, put them together.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Ok. All right.

HOLLAND: So one leg forward, one back. Lower body move, upper body move, Jane and just down and up.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Ok. Yes, all right.

HOLLAND: You feel now, you`re getting your upper body and your lower body together.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Oh, ok. Instead of doing them separately, you`re doing them together. And you split the time.

HOLLAND: Exactly. You literally cut in half. You also feel the balance and coordination you need --

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes. All right.

HOLLAND: To work your abs. And you just switched legs perfect. So now do it front raise, so now forward, and you`re going to work your shoulders. You`re all ready to go exactly.

And the difficulty is what`s so great, because now you`re working your core, your coordination and your balance, which is so important as we get older.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Yes.

HOLLAND: You`re doing the squat, so nice and wide, bicep curl, dip back.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: I never thought I`d be, you know?

HOLLAND: But again.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: But you know what; I have been doing it in quick bursts, when I walk my dog, et cetera, et cetera. I do maybe squats, like 20 squats, and I make a commitment just to do those 20 squats.

HOLLAND: You work it into your day, Jane. Exactly. You don`t need to work out for an hour straight. Work it into your day. And couple of minutes here and there. Do the combo moves when you have time, half the time.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: And you know, my knees are not so good. And that`s because I used to run a lot. Nobody believes me but I did. I used to run a lot. I swear to God.

HOLLAND: Squats and lunges will help that.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: They will.

HOLLAND: Absolutely.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Ok. So in other words, even if it hurts when I do this, because it does hurt my knees, I can better -- So many people have knee problems.

HOLLAND: Right. And so often the knee problem is weak muscles around your knees. So squats aren`t bad for you. Bad squats, bad lunges are bad for you. So you just want to make sure --

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Ok. So this can actually help my knees?

HOLLAND: It will. It will. It will strengthen those muscles around your knees with less pressure on the knee caps so less --

(CROSSTALK)

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. I didn`t know I could rehabilitate my knees.

HOLLAND: Yes.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Knee rehab.

HOLLAND: Half the time.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: All right. Thank you, Magician.

HOLLAND: Thanks Jane.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Nancy next.
