who helped trace suspicious online postings to an ip address in vienna, virginia, to this sign shop not far from the dulles toll road. the affidavit says this is steve baker's business. the person inside declined to open the door when we knocked there today, but the fbi affidavit details what happened when their agent knocked on the door a few months ago. the agents asked baker if he knew why they were there. his response, i have child porn on my computer. adding, i've been waiting for some to come. then saying i'm actually downloading a file right now. do you want to see? no answer at baker's home in kensington today either. our further review finds these cases are increasingly common. we found a huge spike in child exploitations in maryland in 2014 and 2015, which the fbi says comes from phones and portable devices.

comment. >> to mr. wong, who i probably met once or twice in my life, i'm not exactly sure, fine, upstanding individual. it is very unfortunate -- >> you don't have personal ties to him? >> no, no. zero. >> the fundraiser at clinton's house was one of at least three interactions between wong and mcauliffe. one meeting concerned an agreement signed by governor bob mcdonnell before mcauliffe took office to export soybeans from virginia ports to china. the justice department told him there's been no finding of wrongdoing on mcauliffe's part. the governor has withdrawn from a democratic fundraiser in june for an ohio senate candidate. mcauliffe says he does not want to be a distraction. surprised and rattled, that's how president obama describes world leaders and their reaction to the idea of donald trump in the white
today, the candidate got a step closer by clinching the number of necessary delegates to win the republican nomination. steve handelsman on capitol hill now with our report. steve? >> reporter: jim, thanks. just plain surprising is this story in this year of rapid fire political developments. this is another one. a few unpledged delegates in north dakota jumped on the trump train. suddenly, trump had one more than the 1237 total he's been fighting for. with the north dakota delegates who put him over the top, donald trump celebrated clinching the nomination by taunting his likely next opponent. >> and here i am watching hillary fight and she can't close the deal. >> reporter: president obama in japan said world lied eaders ar watching. >> they're rattled by him and for good reason. >> reporter: rattled, trump said good. >> we're going to have great relationships with these countries, but if they're rattled in a fnd

revenue go to a woman's charity. i'm steve handelsman. tomorrow marks one year since the high profile murder of a reporter in the district. charnice milton was killed in a shootout by people riding on atvs. so far no arrests. milton's murder is not the only unsolved case in the community where she died. chris gordon is live with more. >> reporter: good evening, doreen. so far this year there have been 48 murders in the district of columbia. 35 of those murders happened here east of the anacostia river. many of them remain unsolved, just like charnice milton's murder. >> to say we're disheartened and disappointed is an understatement. >> reporter:
cathy lanier once again today. >> all we want is really justice. >> reporter: a long-time community activist wanted to call attention to the more than 100 uninvolved murders in his community. he started putting pictures of the victims on display. >> it's basically a photographic morgue. it hits people because they do not realize that there are that many unsolved homicides just east of the river. >> reporter: each time there's a murder east of the river he adds another face to his display. his collection goes back to 2010. >> unfortunately, what has happened is because there are so many and it is so frequent that people consider it routine. >> reporter: lanier knows it is hard on the families of those killed to go so long without closure. >> we never give up. we never stop taking information. we never stop trying to close homicide cases. i t
as i can to family members. as painful as it is, we don't want to give up hope. >> reporter: he hopes people who live in safer communities will see his display and take a lesson from it. >> i hope they'll continue to hope and pray and work to make sure their community doesn't become the killing field that east of the anacostia river has become. >> reporter: now he told me he wanted to create a memorial similar to the aids quilt that would memorialize and remember the victims. he hopes the d.c. government will use the d.c. cable channels to air their own d.c.'s most wanted tv show as a way to help bring closure to some of these open homicide cases. jim, back to you. that memorial day getaway is certainly under way. 38 million people are expected to be traveling this holiday. right now, no reports of in jo

those massive repairs on metro just over a week to go now before they get under way. that means big changes to the way we get around. more people already turning to uber. will that mean you'll have to pay those surge prices? adam tuss is in boston tonight where the first phase of the safetrack plan begins. hi, adam. >> reporter: hey, doreen. first things first, if you hadn't thought about how you're going to get around, you really don't have much time left. as far as uber is concerned, the reality is when demand gets high, they're probably going to charge you more. just thinking about the delays because of this massive safetrack maintenance plan has some already talking about walking away from metro. when safetrack starts, will you look for an alternate option? >> most
up after statements like that. it will be expanding car pool options for compumuters. >> surge is designed to ensure that people can get a ride when they need one. it helps ensure that drivers have an incentive to be exactly where riders need them when they need them. >> reporter: however you plan to get around, the first big part of this metro project is right around the corner. beginning next saturday, there will be 13 straight days of single tracking around the clock between east falls church and boston. intense repairs will be made along this section of track. trains will only run every 18 minutes. that's expected to lead to very crammed, crowded conditions with long waits. >> we would not be doing this unless we had to. that's where we are. >> reporter: metro gm extra met
metro bus service will be added in the area. >> the first one is going to be the most difficult, clearly. it will be the first one for us. it will be the first one for the customers. it will be bumpy. >> reporter: in other words, it's time to put your game plan together. all right. so some other transportation options for you to consider, in fairfax county, they're going to be running extra fairfax connecter service. vre is also being offered as an option. we have a list of all your transportation options during safetrack in the nbc washington app. just search safetrack options. there's still no word on what caused a crash that sent 23 children and 2 adults to the hospital today. it happened on columbia pike near musgrove road in silver spring this morning. that accident involved two transport vans that were carrying children. one rear ended the other. the kids are between the ages of 12 and 14 and
visiting from bermuda. 231 million of us will get on an airplane this summer. today, congress heard from airlines, airports, and the largest union that represents government workers. witnesses noted that some of the staffing shortages at the tsa are caused by a mandatory cap on the number of full-time employees. the attrition rate for part-time employees is nearly triple the rate for tsa full-time workers. >> it makes sense to take a lot of these individuals that are part-time now and make them full-time. >> people want full-time employment, so moving that money to getting them full-time would definitely help fix a lot of the problems. >> reporter: after the hearing, new york congressman introduced a bill that requires the tsa to evaluate its
model. and an investigation by the associated press is revealing persistent problems with airports outer defenses. the ap says there were at least 345 perimeter security breaches at 31 of the nation's busiest airports between 2004 and mid february of this year. eight of them were at dulles. two were at national. airports say their security systems are strong and none of the breaches involved a known terrorist plot. we're hearing some promising news in the search for egyptair flight 804. investigators say airbus is receiving signals from the plane's emergency locater transmitter. now because it uses radio waves that transmitter is usually used to locate crashes on land, but experts say it is possible those signals can be picked on or investigators are actually receiving pings
black boxes. either way, it will significantly reduce the search area, which has narrowed to a three-mile radius. egyptair flight 804 went down eight days ago. the last messages from the plane indicate smoke on board and computer failures, but no one on the ground received a mayday from the flight crew. he comes from a powerful political family. tonight a former donald trump delegate faces a judge on child porn charges as we learn what else investigators found when they raided his home. a suspect in a near deadly home invasion attack caught on video just days before the crime. i'm julie carey. coming up, i'll show you what weapons she was buying and why it adds to the evidence against her husbd. an

of 30-year-old caleb bailey. they hashed out details about his case. the government said on may 5th when atf agents raided the home, they found projectiles and unlicensed machine guns. bailey was making some of the weapons and selling them to licensed dealerships and family and friends. they found videos of child pornography. >> things that were caught on a neutral surveillance camera. >> reporter: the defense argued that surveillance cameras are all around bailey's property and the one positioned inside a bathroom was rolling when a minor stepped out of the shower and was using the restroom. >>
ridiculous. he's been there almost a month with a perfectly clean record. >> reporter: now if prosecutors lose their appeal next week, bailey will be released to his sister's home. some of the terms and conditions of his release are staying away from minors. caleb has resigned as a trump delegate. he was replaced last saturday. a man from maryland has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for killing his 3-month-old son. he was originally convicted of murder back in 2002. he won a retrial and was convicted for a second time this past march. today, a judge in
county sentenced him to life with all but 50 years suspended. prosecutors say he killed the baby to collect on a $750,000 life insurance policy. tonight, jurors are getting a more complete picture of what led up to a violent home invasion attack on a mclean couple. this is part of the evidence revealed today. it's surveillance video taken just days before the attack. julie carey reports now from the fairfax county courthouse. >> reporter: it's andrew schmuhl who is on trial first, accused of carrying out the bizarre and violent attack that began with two shots from a taser. but today prosecutors showed jurors this video they say shows the preparation. november 7th, 2014. just two days before the near deadly home invasion, schmuhl's wife, alicia, is captured on video at a gun store buying a taser. the clerk told jurors she later returned to buy more taser
cartridges. it was this taser later recovered in the schmuhl's getaway suv that probation report -- prosecutors say began the two hours of terror. prosecutors believe the schmuhl's plotted the attack to seek revenge after fisher fired alicia schmuhl. but defense attorneys hope to show andrew was just carrying out his wife's orders, that he was so heavily medicated at the time he can't be held responsible. on cross-examination, the defense attorney underscored that it was alicia buying the weapon. asked the defense attorney, did you see my client? he wasn't there that day. no, replied the clerk. prosecutors worked today to connect the dots between the three weapons recovered, the taser, a gun, and a knife, and andrew schmuhl. the forensic report show there were no fingerprints on the taser and the one on the gun not useful for
knife, the print on it, a match with andrew schmuhl's right thumb. after hearing five days of testimony, jurors get a break. trial testimony resumes next tuesday. transit officials are working to make five major intersections in the district safer for cars, for bikes, and pedestrians. among the problem spots are georgia and kennedy, 14th street and columbia road, and 18th and adams mill in northwest. also on the list, others in southwest d.c. city officials say in some cases they may need to add bike lanes. in others it could be as simple as having traffic lights change after pedestrian signals. it's a decade's old tradition. how our nation's fallen heros are being honored at arlington national cemetery. imagine dangling off the
