    A group of people from South Florida are making the 22-hour pilgrimage to Washington in hopes of catching a glimpse of Pope Francis on his first American tour.

    "Oh, I'm very excited," one passenger, Carmen Roman, said.  "I couldn't even sleep that good last night because it's like a dream come true."

    The Archdiocese of Miami is sponsoring the two-day trip to the nation's capital.

    "I always wanted to see the Holy Father, and the main thing is that I don't even have to go to Rome," Roman said. "I have the opportunity thanks to the Archdiocese of Miami."

    The worshipers are hoping to see Pope Francis make his way to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, which will mark the pope's first mass and canonization on U.S. soil.

    Wednesday's Mass is a ticketed affair, and more than $25,000 people are expected to attend.

    "If we can get there and see that, that would be amazing to me," another pilgrim, Marie, said.

    While the South Florida worshipers don’t have tickets, they are still hoping to catch a peek of the pope, and if all else fails, they are still happy just to be a part of it all.

    "I said, 'I could probably see him better on TV,' but this is just special. I have to be there," Marie said.

    "This is an opportunity you have once in a lifetime," another pilgrim, Judith, added.

    Pope Francis came to Washington on Tuesday for the first visit of his life to the United States, bringing his "church of the poor" to the world's wealthiest superpower and a country polarized over issues closest to his heart: immigration, social injustice and economic inequality.

    President Barack Obama and his family greeted Francis on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews upon his arrival from Cuba, according a rare honor to the pontiff. Presidents usually make important visitors come to them at the White House.

    Emerging from the plane to boisterous cheers from a crowd of hundreds, the smiling 78-year-old pontiff removed his skullcap in the windy weather and made his way down the steps in his white robes.

    He was met by a military honor guard, schoolchildren, politicians, and Roman Catholic clergymen in black robes and brightly colored sashes of scarlet and purple. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife were among those who welcomed him.

    From there, the pope rode in a small charcoal-gray Fiat as part of a motorcade bound for the Vatican diplomatic mission in Washington, where Francis will stay while in the capital.

    During his six-day, three-city visit to the U.S., the pope will meet with Obama, address Congress, speak at the United Nations in New York and take part in a Vatican-sponsored conference on the family in Philadelphia.

    The Argentine known as the "slum pope" for ministering to the downtrodden in his native Buenos Aires is expected to urge America to take better care of the environment and the poor and return to its founding ideals of religious liberty and open arms toward immigrants.

    Francis' enormous popularity, propensity for wading into crowds and insistence on using an open-sided Jeep rather than a bulletproof popemobile have complicated things for U.S. law enforcement, which has mounted one of the biggest security operations in American history to keep him safe.

    "One big thing, he's never been here before and he doesn't really know this country," Vatican analyst John Thavis told Local 10 News anchor Laurie Jennings. "…I think he realizes that a lot of his messages are popular in this country, but some are unpopular. And I think he really does feel, 'I have to get to know this country.'"

    The measures are unprecedented for a papal trip and could make it nearly impossible for many ordinary Americans to get anywhere close to Francis. For anyone hoping to get across town when the pope is around, good luck.

    In addition to his Vatican security staff, Francis will be protected by the U.S. Secret Service during his visit.

    "He'll shake hands," Thavis said. "He'll kiss babies, and people will actually throw things into his vehicle, little gifts or roses or flowers, mostly flower pedals."

    Archdiocese of Miami spokeswoman Mary Ross Agosta was on hand to watch the pope's arrival. She said this is her fifth time taking part in a papal visit.

    "Every time the air Alitalia plane lands and the Holy Father walks out the door, it just brings tears to my eyes," she said.

    Agosta said it was "marvelous" to see Francis walk down the steps smiling at the more than 1,000 who gathered to see the pope arrive. She said she wasn't close enough to touch him, but was "certainly close enough that I could see the smile and I could see the buttons on the president's suit."

    For all the attention likely to be paid to Francis' speeches, including the first address from a pope to Congress, his more personal gestures -- visiting with immigrants, prisoners and the homeless -- could yield some of the most memorable images of the trip.

    Two bodies were found inside a Hialeah apartment Wednesday morning in an apparent murder-suicide.

    The discovery was made in a first-floor apartment at Las Brisas Gardens.

    Hialeah police said they received a 911 call from a distraught relative. When officers arrived, they found the bodies of a married couple inside.

    Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez said Oscar Mendoza, 45, strangled his wife of 21 years, Gilma Martinez, 40, during a domestic dispute and then hanged himself.

    The couple has four children together -- two daughters, ages 17 and 20, and two boys who are 8 and 10 years old.

    Police said the boys were not present at the time of the incident.

    The Hialeah Police Department does not have any records showing previous domestic violence between the couple.

    Police said the investigation is ongoing.

    A Miami-Dade police officer was arrested Wednesday on official misconduct and other charges.

    The Miami-Dade Police Department arrested Officer Saintamen Edwards. She was faces two counts of official misconduct, with the unlawful use of a communication device and with the misuse of personal identification information.

    Investigators said Edwards falsified criminal allegations against her estranged husband and used Miami-Dade police equipment to spread false information to her husband's employer, trying to get him fired.

    Edwards is currently relieved of duty without pay.

    Miami-Dade Police Director J.D. Patterson noted that every Miami-Dade police officer takes an oath to maintain the trust and integrity of the community.

    "Any officer who violates that oath must be held responsible for their actions," Patterson said.

    The Miami Beach Police Department has linked a DNA sample from a sexual battery to a man known as the "Coral Gables creeper."

    Police said a burglary and sexual battery were reported Aug. 18 at a home in the North Beach area.

    According to a case report, the woman was awakened by the man at about 5:30 a.m. She told detectives that the man began performing oral sex on her and referred to her by her first name.

    She said she did not recognize the man and told him to stop multiple times.

    Detectives said the man shined a flashlight on a clock on her nightstand at 6:15 a.m. and ran out of the apartment through the back door.

    The victim told detectives that the man told her he was from Cuba and told her that he would not hurt her.

    "The results indicate a link between our case and those in the City of Miami and Coral Gables," Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said. "We will be redoubling our efforts to alert the community of this fugitive, and will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to apprehend this subject."

    Earlier this month, Coral Gables police released an enhanced composite sketch of the man who is believed to have broken into numerous homes in Coral Gables and Miami since last year. In each case, female victims have been home alone and have awakened to find a person standing near them.

    Detectives said some of the women were sexually assaulted.

    In a case from May, a Coral Gables woman said she was sleeping when she woke up to find a man standing over her, covering her mouth with his hands.

    Police said the woman had left the kitchen hallway light on, but the man unscrewed the light bulb from the socket enough to disable it.

    The woman told detectives that the man was wearing gloves and told her that he was 19 years old. She said she told him, "You're wearing gloves. I promise not to move or look for 10 seconds if you would just leave."

    She said she closed her eyes and the man quickly left her apartment.

    Police described the man as having olive-colored skin and believe he is in his 20s to early 30s. They said he often wears a hooded sweatshirt or other material to conceal his identity.

    Police also described the man as a loner and stalker, someone who is socially awkward and immature.

    Anyone with information about the identity of the man is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    In the first canonization on U.S. soil, Pope Francis has elevated to sainthood an 18th-century missionary who brought Catholicism to the American West Coast.

    Francis canonized Junipero Serra on Wednesday during a Mass in Washington.

    Serra was a Franciscan friar who marched north from Baja California with Spanish conquistadors, establishing nine of the 21 missions in what is now California.

    The canonization was polarizing. Serra is revered by Catholics for his missionary work, and many Latinos in the U.S. view his canonization as a badly needed acknowledgment of Hispanics' role in the American church.

    But many Native Americans said Serra enslaved converts and contributed to the spread of disease that wiped out indigenous populations.

    In July, Francis issued a broad apology for the church's sins against indigenous peoples.

    The anticipation is palpable. All across New York City, finishing touches are being made for the pope's arrival Thursday afternoon.

    His first stop will be at St. Patrick's Cathedral, which by the look of it, you'd think was built yesterday.

    The church spent $177 million to renovate it. Just about every single piece of concrete on the exterior was replaced. We're talking all 300 feet up from famed Fifth Avenue.

    By the time the pope celebrates evening prayer there he'll be able to hear the place in all its glory. Nearly all 9,000 pipes, which make up the great organ, were also replaced.

    The faithful got an early look at the place during an evening Mass early Wednesday night.

    "The place is very beautiful inside. There's a Mass going on and it was very solemn," Clarence Bennett said.

    "Yesterday, I was in Washington and I saw the preparations for the visit, and now I'm looking forward to this visit," Paulo Chinney said.

    On the lighter side of things, the pope's visit has given rise to just about about everything you can think of, including papal-themed drinks and cookies.

    A bakery in the Bronx used icing to create a treat, fresh out of the oven, bearing his likeness. It was an update on Pope Benedict XVI cookie when he visited New York City in 2008.

    The renovations uncovered a surprise high atop St. Patrick's. Local 10 News was told a bottle of champagne was found tucked away in a box in the ceiling. A note was found with workers names on it from the 1970s. It was replaced with a bottled of brandy, which the monsignor said won't go bad.

    Police say they received a 911 call about a possible stabbing. When they arrived they said a 13-year-old boy and his mother were found stabbed. When police found the armed man, there was an altercation that led up to shots being fired.

    "I am released and ready for contact."

    Those are the words from Chris Bosh as he met the media Friday, four days  before the Heat open training camp.

    Bosh saids he is no longer on blood thinners and is ready to get back to basketball. In fact, Bosh said he does not have the gene that would lead to an increased risk of future blood clots and will only have to make minor adjustments to prevent clots from recurring.

    "Just the small things," Bosh said. "Making sure that after the game you continue to move, that's the most important thing, keep the blood pumping in the legs."

    Bosh said he has been doing plenty of basketball-related activities over the last two months. He said he has bulked up to between 240 and 245 pounds. He said his fight made him question, for a time, if he would ever play again and has given him a new perspective on the game he loves.

    "I came that close to losing it," Bosh said. "When someone tells you, 'I don't know, you may never be able to play basketball anymore.' I mean, it's like, man, I shouldn't have been complaining those days when I was tired."
