Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.  

The death of a 59-year-old Oberlin man is being investigated as suspicious by the Allen Parish Sheriff's office. The man was found dead after a fire in his mobile home. More on the story is available HERE

In Seattle, Wash., a news helicopter for KOMO-TV has crashed outside its station near the Seattle Space Needle. Look for the latest at noon, and you can read more HERE

Welsh Police have arrested four people in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries over the past two days. Get more on this at noon, or read more HERE.

Also today, we'll document the fall of an infomercial king. Kevin Trudeau made millions on his products, but now he's going to prison for ten years. We'll have the whole story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

We'll also tell you how new technology allows football fans to watch the game like you've never seen it before – from the perspective of players. It's the first ever football helmet with an integrated video system inside.

Plus, the love between a military vet and his service dog runs deep – especially when his four-legged partner saves his life. At noon, we'll explain how Balto the dog pulled his partner John from a powerful bomb blast in Afghanistan and how they are now back together.

Ben tells me we'll have clear skies all day and by late afternoon our temperatures should be near 70.  We'll be warmer tonight as well, but how long will this weather last? Are the colder temperatures totally behind us? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon to find out.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
