5 Things To Know For Your New Day, October 31

The suspect in a Pennsylvania police killing is caught. A Maine nurse defies her Ebola quarantine. And why did a NASA-contracted company blow up a rocket seconds after launch?

It's Friday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."


Suspect in killing caught: After nearly seven weeks on the run, suspected cop killer Eric Matthew Frein is in custody, Pennsylvania authorities said yesterday. He was caught at an abandoned airport between Henryville and Tannersville. He had weapons at the time of his arrest, officials said.


Operator hit self-destruct: After it became apparent there was a problem with the launch of a NASA-contracted rocket, the company that operated the flight hit the destruct button, a spokesman said yesterday. The flight termination system was engaged, said Barron Beneski, vice president at Orbital Sciences Corp.


Keeping her away from public places: In the tense standoff between a Maine nurse and state officials, it was a surreal scene. Nurse Kaci Hickox, who recently returned to the United States after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, went on a bike ride with her boyfriend yesterday - followed by a police cruiser and a throng of journalists watching their every move. Maine Gov. Paul LePage said he'd do whatever is "allowable by law" to keep her away from public places.


Police chief says he's staying put: The Ferguson, Missouri, police chief said yesterday that he won't step down, despite continued unrest months after one of his officers fatally shot Michael Brown and high-level talks that could lead to his exit.


Military in control: The military in the West African nation of Burkina Faso seized control of the government yesterday and set a dusk-to-dawn curfew in what one general described as an effort to protect lives and restore order.


Those are your five biggies for the day. Here are a few others that are brewing and have the Internet buzzing:

Falling hard after a running start: It's hard to look away. Watch a couple that got their marriage off to a flying thud.


Just doing it for Cleveland: A Nike commercial marks LeBron James' return to Cleveland.



Wild and sweet: A friendly deer doughnut delivery service is now available in Idaho.



So good, it's scary: This dad and son win Halloween this year, hands down.



Good day for an ocean swim: A drone video shows divers swimming with whale sharks and mantas.


There you go. All you need to know to get an early start to your morning. Be sure to tune in to "New Day," from 6 to 9 a.m. ET, join us at NewDayCNN.com and go and have a GREAT NEW DAY!

    Comments that I had made in the last four days are all still awaiting moderation. I can't even read others' comments. I've attempted to reach out to the CNN team but to no avail. I hope my concerns eventually reach someone's desk. Thank you. Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!
