Fully half of CBS' newscast was devoted to Katie Couric's interview with Karen James, the widow of the mountaineer who was found dead in a snow cave on Mount Hood. Couric flew round trip to Dallas to land her Exclusive.
James generated more sobbing than news in the interview. The most moving moment was when she recounted how searchers had been told that they could identify her husband by his ring. When they entered the snow cave "so peaceful, so serene" where Kelly James had frozen to death, they found that he had taken his right glove off, despite the cold. He had made a fist with his bare hand, except for his ring finger. He left that pointing outwards in plain view: "He knew. He wanted to be identified."
