Body of possible missing LC woman subject of hearing today

Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*It's the next step forward in a mysterious case 20 years in the making.  A hearing takes place in Mississippi today to determine if a body believed to be that of a missing Lake Charles woman can be exhumed. 

*An internal investigation continues this morning after a Lake Charles police office shoots a dog while pursuing a home burglary suspect.  Hear how the dog is doing today and what the owners are saying about this unfolding situation.

*With the government opened and the latest financial crisis on hold, attention in Washington turns to whether Democrats and Republicans can come up with a permanent budget plan by mid-December.

*Several movies hit the big screen this weekend, including a Halloween fright-fest "Carrie" remake and "12 Years a Slave."  We'll have the box office preview.

*Speaking of movies, a Lake Charles theatre uses new technology to allow movie watching for the blind.  Find out how it works!

*We have two special guests joining us this morning on Sunrise: Cookie Hauser will be showing us how to whip up a Crock Pot Cassoulet and the Beauregard Parish Elementary Student of the Year will help me share today's headlines!

*If that's not enough...Ben Terry has a look at our cooler and rainy weekend forecast. 

Make it a Sunrise day!

Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
