i this case was supposed to be done today, but now many are blind sided by the defense's new claims. they say new information from two separate witnesses could have helped their client's case. instead, pointing to an alleged sex trafficking ring that may have been involved in tibbetts and other local disappearances. >> mollie tibbetts was abducted
7:41 am
for the purposes of sex trafficking. >> reporter: attorneys for cristhian behena rivera say two new witnesses claim a man confessed to killing mollie tibbetts after she was abducted and held for sex trafficking at a home that could be connected to other disappearances in the area. >> we have information that three people have vanished out of thin air in this small rural county. >> reporter: after his arrest, rivera led investigators to her body in a cornfield and told them he murdered tibbetts. at his trial, rivera, a mexican national, testified he was kidnapped at gunpoint by two men and forced to drive them to a rural road where he said they passed tibbetts jogging. he claimed a man got out of his car with a knife, stabbed tibbetts to death, and put her body in the trunk. rivera said the men threatened to hurt his family before leaving him to dispose of her body. >> mollie tibbetts was in the
7:42 am

7:43 am
and they disagree that her abduction could be part of a trafficking ring. >> there's no evidence that we're aware of that a sex trafficking house exists in the department of criminal investigation. why do you remain confident in the investigation and conviction of rivera? >> the evidence that was discovered, you know, her blood was in his trunk of his vehicle. and again, the statements that he gave that all came out during trial, that's where our confidence lies. >> reporter: the defense noted blood tests from rivera's trunk showed dna from people other than tibbetts. they are also requesting information from prosecutors on sex trafficking investigations in the region. the judge said he expects to have a decision regarding the potential evidence by the week's end. we reached out to the tibet family for their reaction, but they have declined to comment. >> can imagine this is very disturbing for them. three years ago this sunday, mollie tibbetts disappeared. >> so painful. >> thank you. up next, vlad duthiers has

8:04 am
us working together. individuals, for example, can check their sources before they share stories online. is it coming from a scientifically credible source? if you're not sure, don't share. but we really need our tech companies to step up here as well because we know so much of this information is being transacted on technology platforms. >> dr. murthy, in our reporting earlier in this broadcast it came out that this is actually sourced back to a relatively few initial sources. do you have any sense of why this misinformation is being spread? >> well, it is an interesting question, and there are several reasons but two that i will point out to. in some cases there are people intentionally trying to spread information, sometimes for financial gain or for political reasons or for other reasons. but we also know that much of the misinformation out there is often spread by people who actually don't have bad intentions. they're people like me and you and others who are listening today who might see a story that they think is alarming and they think sharing it with their
8:05 am
network might be helpful to them. they may not realize that it is false. that's why in this advisory we specifically point to the steps individuals can take to pause before they share, but it is also why technology companies have a really important role to play in identifying superspreaders of misinformation, in stopping their activity and spread of misinformation online, and also help in being more transparent so we understand just how much misinformation is being transacted on these platforms and what strategies are working to stop it. >> part of the reason why i think, dr. murthy, it is so confusing, let's start with los angeles where now even if you are vaccinated you have to wear a mask. it just seems like the rules keep changing because we are always told if you are vaccinated you are safe. i call it my superpower, it protects you. so why do vaccinated people also now have to wear a mask in los angeles if supposedly you are safe with the vaccine? >> reporter:. >> so, gayle, you are pointing to a real important issue that we have seen as a challenge throughout this pandemic, which is as sigcience evolves our
8:06 am
guidance has to evolve. if we are not able to communicate it with enough context and clarity and consistency it can lead to rinoh masks, onef ings we knowreullyafou last sho chances of getting sick and transmitting the infection to someone else is low. it doesn't mean zero, it means low. there are certain circumstances if you have a lot of virus in your community around you or you are somebody who lives at home with people who are unvaccinated you might choose to continue wearing masks. in localities like l.a. county or other counties that are looking around and seeing cases rising and seeing large portions of people unvaccinated may choose to put measures back in place like mask requirements, and that flexibility is okay. but what we have to do is consistently, clearly and transparently communicate with people about what these rules are, why they may be shifting because otherwise they can be very confusing. >> yes. i was very sorry to hear, doctor, that you lost ten members of your own family to
8:07 am
this, to covid. i'm sure you tried to convince them to get the vaccine. so what do you say to people that just don't get it? >> well, gayle, first of all thank you. my family members who -- you know, who have passed away unfortunately due to covid, they didn't have a chance actually to get fully vaccinated, the vast majority of them. i think so often about things could have been different if they did have a vaccine available to them. but for those out there who are still unsure of whether they should get vaccinated, number one, i try to listen to their concerns. that's something i was taught early in medicine. you don't judge people for their beliefs. you listen to them, you try to understand. then i also try to make sure that they have access to the information that science actually guides us to understand about the vaccine, not the myths that are out there, the myths that two-thirds of unvaccinated people unfortunately either believe or think are true, but the real facts. the facts are this. that these vaccines are single most powerful pathway to ending this pandemic. they've saved thousands of lives
8:08 am
already. the benefits of vaccination certainly far outweigh any rare risks that come with them. so as a doctor i urge people to look at the data, make the best decision for yourself and your family, but know that they are saving lives right now. >> yeah, i hear you. we will keep repeating that information as often as we need to. thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you. ahead, what you need to know about sunscreen. there's a big sunscreen recall. you need to pay attention to this, too. how to kee

two more sun care products are being pulled from the shelves after johnson & johnson warned that benzene, a chemical that may cause cancer, was found in some of its sunscreen products. cvs heel says it is halting the sale of two aloe vera products out of an abundance of caution. on wednesday johnson & johnson announced disvoluntarily
8:15 am
recalling five you neutrogena and aveeno sun screens. they said it was out of an abundance of caution. they found samples in 78 sun care products it tested including j & j products. we are joined by dr. elizabeth he hale, a dermatologist. >> good morning. >> why is benzene so harmful? >> it is a known chemical, actually used in the manufacturing process of petroleum. it is something ubiquitous in the environment and we are exposed to it every day by just walking around, cigarette smoke, et cetera. it is not a sunday screen ingredient. it is important people understand, it is a contaminant and something that somehow made its way in very small amounts into certain sunscreens as part of the manufacturing process. but we know benzene can be linked with certain cancers like leukemia and lymphoma. it can decrease blood counts, so it is definitely a problem but
8:16 am
it is not a sunday screen ingredient. >> so how current should people be? we have all been using sun screen this summer. lots of people use it every day. should there be concern? is there an amount people should be worried about if they used? >> these are minute amounts detected in certain sunscreen ingredients. i think it was important to recall the products. i got so many phone calls from people asking me the same questions, but i assured them all of the products recalled are aerosols. for now i'm telling people maybe stick with a lotion, but i want to convey how important it is that people use sun screen. >> you are not people to stop using sunscreen in any way? >> absolutely. sunscreen is important as a strategy because skin cancer is the most common cancer in the united states and the most preventable. skin cancer is linked with unprotected sun exposure, even more than lung cancer is with smoking. we really don't want people to be so afraid they stop
8:17 am
protecting themselves. they really want to still use sunscreen. just be aware of the products that were recalled and for the time being i wouldn't use those products. >> i'm thinking, liz, if it is minute why tell us about it? it makes me think they're concerned about something. >> that's a great question. i think because for 100 years we have known benzene is a problem, not in sunscreens but overall in the environment and it is a known carcinogen. i think what the companies all have to do, not just johnso & johnson, but they all need to do testing to see that their products are free of benzene, and hopefully we will nip the problem in the bud going forward. >> we mentioned there were 78 products it was found in, but only a few have been recalled so far. do you expect it to go wider? >> there probably will be a few more recalled if i had to guess just because now everybody is really scrutinizing and studying, as they should be, and checking with the manufacturing. because, again, it is a manufacturing issue, not a sunday sun screen issue. all of the products recalled are aerosols right now. >> everybody needs sun screen,

especially people of color. people of color think they don't need it. >> skin cancer is the most common and we are seeing a rise across the world and in all skin types, so everybody should protect their skin. >> dr. elizabeth hale, thank you. ahead, the popular song helping to fuel the process in cuba. that's coming up on "cbs this morning." one of the most important things you can do is to make sure you call 811 before you dig. calling 811 to get your lines marked: it's free, it's easy, we come out and mark your lines, we provide you the information so you will dig safely.

8:39 am
>> so you spent time in the editing room through the whole thing? >> yeah. that's the reason why this movie is coming out actually, is because i have been learning a lot more about, like, the film process and just like making a film and putting it together and the distribution of it. but, like, the real reason this movie was able to get made was because i just kind of learned editing. >> and you had the pandemic in time to actually do it. >> a lot of time, yeah. >> but when you were doing the concert, were you planning to make a film all along? they call it "the secret concert." was that your intention wu yhenu started it, i'm going to make a film? >> totally. that's the first concert i did like that because i'm a people-based person, especially in my performances. i like feed off the crowd, and this show was specifically intended for the crowd that was going to view it later. so i was further from my crowd so i could fit the cameras and . a lot of the movement on stage, the intention is like for a
8:40 am
camera, you know. >> chance, you designed this stage for this. >> yeah. >> it was your idea. you were all over this. it was so hands-on. you were in the edit room like you were just saying. have you always been drawn to film and is this something you want to do more of in the future? >> yeah. i actually have -- i'm like a real movie geek, film and cinema geek. i love also the actual cinemas, like the exhibition space, going to the theaters and, like, experiencing a movie in a big group and, like, laughing together or if it is a scary movie screaming together or clapping together. like i like the feeling of being at the movie theater. >> so that's why you wanted this released in theaters? >> yes. so me and amc partnered up, and it is releasing nationwide next month, august 13th. and, yeah, it is like -- it is a thing that you have to go to, like you have to physically do that. >> i'm glad you did that, because i watched on my ipad last night. i think it would be so great to see it on a big screen. but in the film your team says this about you, that you focus on every single detail.
8:41 am
there's not one show where you are off, and that this is something that you take very seriously. and you say you like the the shovel nostalgia in our face. what does that mean? i like how youah, i mn it is mu. there's a lot of, like, you know, nostalgia and references to things from our childhood or obscure things that we, you know, tend to forget, but like when you bring them back it just, like, gives this feeling of warmth. but when it comes to, like, i'm a very experience-based person. i like to set up experiences for people, like around my music, around my concerts, around just act va activations i do in the city. at that point in 2017 i used to do a lot of, like, weird -- like events where i would invite a bunch of people and set up like a school bus so that you wouldn't know where the location was. it would be like a secret location thing. >> right. >> but you pull up, get on this bus and then i would take you somewhere, and that day happened

8:43 am
difficult, you know, no matter what position i will be in. it would be a lot of work, but it is also, like, it is a rewarding feeling to, like, be able to do it with your team. like, you know, all of my friends that work with me and stuff, like we all just have been really excited with the way the process moved along and how quickly we got it done. but, yeah, there's just a rewarding feeling to knowing that you have an idea and an exact way you want your piece to be represented. >> yeah. >> or -- >> it is truly all yours. >> yeah. >> you know what else i like about you? i like your dad. i like your mom. number one, you have a great family. i remember your dad saying once that he wasn't sure this is what he wanted you to do, to be, quote, a rapper. >> yeah. >> he thought there were other things you could be doing. now he is very proud of you and admits that he was wrong. what did you see that he didn't? >> hmm. i think it is probably things that i didn't see that he did. like, you know, he's older than me. >> yeah, he's older than you.
8:44 am
>> and i'm hur thsure that -- i it doesn't sound weird but i was the first famous person that i knew in, like, my group of friends growing up in chicago. obviously there's kanye and twister and people thatame up that, you know, blew up. but everybody out of my city didn't necessarily make it, so it was like i bet from my dad's experience he just wanted me to not be in a position where i was unhappy later or feel like i could have did something different, and maybe thought i had potential to do something. i don't know. i saw music videos and chains and thought people doing, you know what i'm saying? >> the other thing i think stands out about you is you are married, happily married. you are a typical girl dad. you are a real girl dad, you have twoaute your sec dghter wl never forget. you pu out and sd, i' delaying my tour bec want to spend time at home with my wife and my family. >> yeah. >> why did you decide to do that? because you said, i missed the beginning with kinsley, you wanted to do it differently.
8:45 am
>> yeah, when kinsley was born, my oldest daughter was born, i went on tour i think -- my wife knows the exact amount of time, but i think like a little over a month right after she was born and i was gone for about six months, and i just, like, missed a lot of time, you know, and it was really tough on my wife, too. we weren't married at the time, but on my girl at the time, and, you know, there was also -- >> you wanted to do it differently this time? >> yeah, i feel like it was a blessing and some great intuition because obviously right after that the pandemic shut everything down. >> right. >> so i would have been one of the people cancelling my tour later. >> a live audience. >> one gig, summer fest in milwaukee. >> right. >> in front of people. what are you thinking about that, chance? >> i'm just excited to be back on stage. you know, the movie and all of the -- like the virtual concerts i was filming last year, like at first i was kind of -- you know, i didn't know if it was going to work out or be something i was into, and i got really -- i got really good at it. i don't know how to say that. >> i love the confidence.
