7:03 am
something that's very close to her heart and that's breast cancer awareness. there are so many that have put off their screenings during the pandemic. so we're going to talk about that later. her husband president biden down to the wire to get that social spending bill deal done. we'll have the latest from washington in just a few moments. >> they're trying to come to a compromise. but we begin with a breakthrough in the gabby petito case. federal agents found human remains along with a backpack and notebook belonging to brian laundrie in a florida nature reserve. trevor ault there with latest. >> reporter: for the past month, brian laundrie has been one of the most wanted men in america. perhaps the only person who knows what happened to gabby petito. this morning, we're now waiting to learn if the search is ending where it began, at this florida nature reserve. this morning, a key discovery in the search for gabby petito's former boyfriend brian laundrie as authorities say they uncovered what may be human remains in myakkahatchee
7:04 am
creek envnt park. >> investigators found what are to brian laundrie. >> reporter: the items found near a laundrie frequented. his parents' attorney speaking to abc news. >> the reserve was opened yesterday to the public. ty wan go to the reserve to look around and i notified the north port police who notified the fbi and met them there. >> reporter: as the medical examiner works to confirm whether or not those remains belong to laundrie there's a high probability it's him. the fbi now bringing in cadaver dogs saying it will take days to process the scene. the alligator infested swamps have served as the focal point in the month-long search as
7:05 am
nlaundrie'slaundrie'slaundrie'ss was a place he frequented. his father chris laundrie joined the search for his son two weeks ago, reportedly pointing out possible trails and paths, nothing was found. yesterday, investigators say the remains along his backpack and notebook were uncovered. >> i can't say chris pointed this area to police. i can say this is an area that we initially notified the fbi that brian liked to hike in. >> i think our plan for today is to just hang out. >> reporter: brian laundrie's still the only person of interest in gabby petito's disappearance. he returned home from their cross-country road trip september 1st without gabby, both he and his parents refusing to speak with authorities about her whereabouts. gabby's body was found september 19th near grand teton national park in wyoming. the coroner saying she had been murdered and left there for
7:06 am
weeks. >> the cause of death, by strangulation and manner is homicide. >> reporter: earlier this week her parents telling "60 minutes" australia they never felt their daughter was in danger because she was with brian. >> i thought he would protect her. i just want him in a cell. >> reporter: for context it took two days to confirm gabby had been found and in that instance the body matched her description. down here in florida this could be a lengthy and more meticulous process. they have to confirm that these remains are even human. george? let's bring in dan abrams and mary-ellen o'toole. dan, no confirmation yet. there are a lot of indications this is brian laundrie. >> right, you have to believe whatever remains these are almost certainly connected to this case. they're found right next to the notebook and the backpack. the fbi tends to be very careful
7:07 am
in what they say in a high profile case like this. for them to say apparent human remains, means they're convinced they're human remains. if they are human remains found right there, couple miles away from where his car was, right in the area his parents said he might have been, his backpack and notebook there, without going down rabbit holes, you have to believe these are the remains of brian laundrie. >> mary-ellen how long will it take to i.d. those remains? what other information can they get from the remains? >> it's going to depend in what shape the remains are in. this could take a number of days. first of all they want to determine if that's in fact brian. they want to determine the manner of death, which means is it homicide, suicide, accidental, natural, undetermined. those are the two prominent pieces of information they'll
7:08 am
want to obtain. >> dan, let's talk about the parents. for more than a month, for more than a month, authorities are searching coming up empty. they decide to go search and within 30 minutes the discovery is made. >> it's bizarre the time line here. it's to tough to reconcile because of that. the body is found -- what appear to be remains are found in the exact area that the parents had said that brian laundrie could be. there had been previously a cadaver dog out basically in this area. cadaver dogs can detect human remains under water. one of the arguments here is this was covered with water. that very well may be the answer. maybe they didn't search in this area. but, it's so coincidental that the parents say we decided to go
7:09 am
out there because the park was open to the public. they go out that morning. they say the police meet them. if you listen to what their lawyer is saying not the parents were there with police. the parent went there. there's no doubt there are still a ton of questions about how this happened, when this happened and why this happened now. >> mary-ellen, that backpack and notebook could provide some of the answers. >> it could. it really is going to depend, though. the first thing they're going to do is determine if that evidence has been out there for basically the same length of time as the remains. theoretically that should be the case. depending on what's in that notebook, that has to be considered. if brian put information in that notebook, it has to be considered self-reported information which means it could
7:10 am
be very self-serving if he talks about gabby and what happ they'll carefully and determine the forensic value of it. >> mary-ellen, thank you very much for your insight. dan, thank you as well. we'll turn now to the latest on the fight against the coronavirus. the fda authorized the first round of boosters for moderna and johnson & johnson vaccines for some people and gave the green light to mixing and matching the boosters. whit johnson is breaking it down for us. whit, let's break it down first of all by brand. who did the fda say is eligible for moderna or j&j >> robin, this is confusing. let's lay it out for you. for people who originally received the moderna vaccine eligibility is the same as the pfizer vaccine, including 65 years and older, 18 and older at high risk due to underlying health conditions. or where they live or work. unlike the pfizer booster the moderna booster is only a
7:11 am
half-dose of the original size. for those who got the johnson & johnson vaccine, booster eligibility is much broader. anyone 18 and up, two months after their first shot. robin? >> the fda also authorized mixing and matching. exactly what does that mean? >> robin, this means if you're eligible for a booster shot regardless of which vaccine shot you originally received, you'll be able to choose which booster you want between any of the three vaccine brands available. this gives people flexibility here. most of this conversation revolves around the johnson & johnson vaccine. there were early studies that suggest if you first got a johnson & johnson shot, but then got a boost from pfizer or moderna you could have an even stronger initial antibody response. no evidence yet that mixing leads to greater long-term protection. >> what happens next, whit? when can people get the shot? >> unless you got pfizer, which is already authorized, not quite yet. the cdc director will give the
7:12 am
final sign-off. millions more americans will be able to get the booster shots by this weekend. one more thing. the fda is thinking of lowering the age of eligibility for those 40 and older. that likely won't be addressed until next month. robin? >> whit, thank you. george? we'll go to washington now where democrats are closing in on a compromise for president biden's social spending package. the package is getting parred down. rachel scott is on capitol hill with the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. it's getting down to the wire for the president and now he's very clear about what he wants in his economic package and how quickly he wants his party to get it done. after a marathon round of meetings with progressives and moderates at the white house, the president hitting the road. he's traveling to pennsylvania to sell his agenda directly to the american people. sources tell me the president
7:13 am
told democrats he wants them to reach a deal by the end of next week before he heads off on that foreign trip and sacrifices would have to be made to get it across the finish line, including dropping tuition free community college. the size of this package the president says will come down from $3.5 trillion to roughly 2 trillion dollar. one democrat telling me that this is most forceful the president has been yet about advancing his economic agenda, but there's still more work to do, george, including an agreement on how to pay for it. >> meantime the democrats plan to expand voting rights stalled. >> reporter: exactly, this is a setback for democrats, republicans blocking a vote on voting rights legislation just yesterday. i spoke to the vice president just moments after that vote failed. she told me they're undeterred by this. democrats plan to bring up a separate bill early next week. they don't have the republican support to get it passed. george? >> rachel scott, thank you very
7:14 am
much. robin, coming up you have an interview with the first lady. >> that is coming up. we're going to talk about jill biden's life in the white house and promoting a very important item on her agenda, breast cancer screening. we'll turn now to the couple pleading not guilty to espionage charges after being accused of selling nuclear secrets. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is tracking the latest details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. at a hearing yesterday the government released a series of photographs and videos that prosecutors say showed jonathan and diana toebbe at secret drop off locations in west virginia and pennsylvania. diana serving as her husband's lookout allegedly. the fbi claiming they were trying to sell classified information to a foreign country about nuclear submarines. authorities believe they were ready to flee the country, they had $11,300 wrapped in $100
7:15 am
bills a go back, latex gloves and their children's passports. authorities suggesting they were in it for the money at one point writing a series of messages to each other. it's not morally defensible either. we convinced ourselves it's fine, but it really isn't. diana allegedly responded i have no problem with it at all. i have no loyalty to ex tractionists. robin? >> thank you for sharing those details, pierre. michael? we turn now to new details on that fiery plane crash in texas, that miracle that all 21 people onboard managed to get out alive. zohreen shah is in houston with more on the investigation and how it was possible everyone could survive with no serious injuries. good morning, zohreen. >> reporter: good morning, michael. the ntsb said they're still looking to how that fire started when people were still on that plane. it's game-changer if it did. on average you can survive about 60 seconds without oxygen, 90
7:16 am
seconds to get off of a burning plane. everyone survived this crash and this morning we're learning more about how they did. this morning, we're learning more about the survivors from this texas crash that ended with a plane skidding down a runway and bursting into flames, after the pilot aborted takeoff. 78-year-old ken melber's family said other passengers had to jump in and help him on evacuation slides on the plane originally headed to mlb playoffs on tuesday. he was one of two hospitalized for minor injuries. the private jet carrying 21 passengers and crew, owned by houston home biden jay allen kent who along with his wife and a 10-year-old were on the plane. a puff of smoke was seen shooting out of an engine during the take off attempt, but experts say it's unclear if it was related to the accident. pilot harry johnson filmed that
7:17 am
video. >> you didn't think they were going to make it? >> no, i didn't. as pilots we go through that, but to see that -- they survived. thank goodness for the pilots. >> reporter: they did make it. ken's family telling us that the 78-year-old is still in good spirits. he's laughing, joking even from the hospital. in fact this astros fans is still asking about the score of the game. guys? >> it just so happens we're going to turn to the road to the world series. the houston astros one win away from a spot in the world series. 9-1 was the score last night. whole lot of scoring. whole lot of focus by the houston pitcher saying he did meditation in the dugout to clear his mind. >> whatever it takes. >> it worked.

many calling this a huge win for the players and their families. the lawyer representing all former players in the settlement saying the agreement will ensure that the nfl concussion settlement works fairly and equitably. this morning the nfl reaching a deal with its former players eliminating the use of the controversial practice of race norming. it's a tool used t evaluate cognitive damage that critics say disadvantaged black former players seeking compensation for head injuries received on the field. >> this battle for us is very personal, because this is our -- this is our family, you know, these are our families on the line. these are our husbands. these are our fathers. >> reporter: the original settlement program's recommended formula assumed black players began their careers at a lower cognitive level than white players. they had to prove more a significant cognitive decline than white players in order to receive a payout. after months of confidential negotiations ordered by a federal judge, new terms were filed to the court under seal on
7:36 am
wednesday. abc news obtained the 46-page document and learned that the nfl and other parties agree that no race norms or race demographic estimates, whether black or white, shall be used in the settlement program going forward. sources familiar with the agreement telling abc news that the new deal could result in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional compensation for former players and their families. one of those players henry. >> football doesn't give you an expiration date. you just expire. i have had 10 concussions, at least 17 surgeries. 17. i'm still getting them. >> reporter: the former pittsburgh steeler defensive lineman submitted a claim after he was diagnosed with mild dementia. the settlement negotiator negott
