(VSET)

FOR THE ASTROS --- IT MAY HAVE BEEN QUICK BUT THERE WAS NOTHING PAINLESS ABOUT LAST NIGHT'S LOSS TO THE DODGERS.

IT WAS THE SHORTEST WORLD SERIES GAME IN 25 YEARS!

 

(NATS VO)

THE DODGERS DEFEATED THE ASTROS IN TWO HOURS AND 28 MINUTES ---

JUST SEVEN MINUTES LONGER THAN THE SHORTEST GAME IN WORLD SERIES HISTORY.

THAT GAME WAS BACK IN 19-92.

AND ADDING INSULT TO INJURY --- IT'S BEEN SIX YEARS SINCE *ANY POST SEASON GAME ENDED BEFORE THE TWO-AND-A-HALF HOUR MARK...

OUCH...

THE ASTROS AND DODGERS FACE-OFF AGAIN TONIGHT FOR GAME TWO --- AND MAYBE THIS ONE WON'T MOVE AS QUICKLY.

Police ID Sherin Mathews' Body

(ON CAM)

WE START OFF WITH BREAKING NEWS --- THE SEARCH FOR SHERIN MATHEWS IS OVER.
THE DALLAS COUNTY MEDICAL EXAMINER CONFIRMS A BODY FOUND SUNDAY WAS THAT OF THE MISSING THREE-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

(FULL SCREENS)

JUST OVER 24 HOURS AGO --- WE LEARNED THE NEW STORY SHERIN'S FATHER IS TELLING POLICE ABOUT HER DEATH.
WESLEY MATHEWS SAYS HE WAS IN THE GARAGE WITH SHERIN AT 3 A-M --- AND SHE WOULDN'T DRINK HER MILK.

WHEN SHE FINALLY DID --- HE SAYS HE QUOTE- PHYSICALLY ASSISTED HER.
THAT'S WHEN SHERIN STARTED CHOKING ON THE MILK.

THEN SHE WAS COUGHING AND HER BREATHING SLOWED.
WESLEY SAYS HE COULDN'T FIND HER PULSE --- THOUGHT SHE WAS DEAD --- AND REMOVED HER BODY FROM THE HOUSE.
THAT ENTIRE STORY CONTRADICTS WHAT HE INITIALLY TOLD INVESTIGATORS.

(VO)

MEANHILE --- SHERIN'S MOTHER SINI MATHEWS HAS A NEW ATTORNEY.
HER FORMER ATTORNEY ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY HE WOULD NO LONGER REPRESENT HER IN THIS CASE.
AT THIS POINT SINI HASN'T BEEN ARRESTED.
BUT POLICE SAY SHE IS NOT COOPERATING WITH THEIR INVESTIGATION.

(ON CAM)

TURNING NOW TO A FLORIDA NEIGHBORHOOD --- ON EDGE.

THREE PEOPLE WERE SHOT AND KILLED --- POLICE HAVE NO LEADS --- AND NO SUSPECT.

 

(VO)

TAMPA POLICE ARE ASKING THEIR COMMUNITY FOR HELP TO FIND THE PERSON IN THIS GRAINY SECURITY VIDEO.

IT'S THE ONLY CLUE POLICE HAVE TO GO on...FOOTAGE OF A PERSON WEARING A HOODIE --- IN THE SAME AREA THE NIGHT OF THE FIRST MURDER.

AND AT A TOWN HALL MEETING --- the TAMPA POLICE CHIEF SAYS THEY'RE BREAKING THE RULES WHEN IT COMES TO THIS CASE.

 

(SOT)

“NORMALLY, WE DON'T GIVE OUT INFORMATION ON CRIMES.  WE HAVE TO MAINTAIN THE INVESTIGATIVE INTEGRITY.  BUT IT'S ABOUT PUBLIC SAFETY AND AWARENESS."

 

(VO)

THE ONLY LINK BETWEEN THE THREE VICTIMS IS TIME FRAME AND  PROXIMITY.

OFFICIALS SAY THERE IS NO KNOWN CONNECTION BETWEEN THE THREE OF THEM.

BUT THE POLICE CHIEF WENT ON TO SAY QUOTE- IF YOU'RE WALKING ALONE --- YOU'RE EITHER A SUSPECT OR POTENTIAL VICTIM.
