Good Monday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*One week after a Vinton woman was reported missing, her body was found in a rural part of East Texas. 7News talks to Tami Higginbotham's family about the woman's death and the suspect now in custody.
*Repairs are still being made at several Sulphur area churches that were broken into and vandalized last year. Daniel Duplechin is accused of damaging the buildings. We have a look at where recovery stands today.
*Today in Kinder, a memorial will be dedicated in honor of Lt. Douglas Fournet. He was killed in action in Vietnam in 1968 and post-humously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. We share the details of today's gravesite ceremony.
*There is now a lawsuit filed against Carnival Cruise lines by one of those passengers aboard the ill-fated Carnival Triumph. Find out what it entails and if it's expected to grow with other passengers.
*We'll open up the Sunrise Pet Shop this morning to introduce you to a furry friend in need of a forever home.
*We'll also share the funeral arrangements for the pilot that died in a plane crash last week in Jennings.
