From the CNN Center here in Atlanta, I'm Melissa Long. It's Friday, May 1st. Here's a look at some of the stories making news at this hour.

Leaders in Hongkong are reporting the first case of swine flu. They say the Mexican citizen flew to the region yesterday. If the World Health Organization confirms the diagnosis1 , it would be the first case of H1N1 in Asia. The patient is now isolated2 in a hospital.

Supreme3 Court Justice David Souter says he always prefered his native New Hampshire to D.C.. And our legal sources, tell CNN that Souter will inform his colleagues today that  he's retiring from what he's called the world's best job in the world's worst city. He'll probably leave in June when the court finishes up for the summer. Analysts4 are already speculating on who will fill his seat.

The balance on the court will probably not shift a great deal. Souter has become a part of the liberal wing. Obama will appoint someone who will vote much the same way, but new people always change the court and a new liberal justice, perhaps a woman, perhaps an African-American, perhaps the first Hispanic on the court, really could change the court in a, in subtle but real way.

Cold case investigators5 believe they've tracked down a serial6 killer7 from decades ago. Yesterday Los Angeles police announced that 72-year-old John Floyd Thomas Jr. was likely behind the murders of as many as 30 women between 1955 and 1978. He's in custody8 charge so far with two of the killings9. A criminal justice expert says Thomas must be smart of avoiding being caught for so long.

If he didn't have that certain cunning, that criminal savoirfaire, if you will, we would caught him decades ago. But there is a small group of serial offenders10 who have that, that street smarts to avoid the cops and to stay at large for decades so they could assemble a body count of dozens.

And a famous Colonel helped the City of Chattanooga, Tennessee to fix potholes11 . The work's been done thanks to a donation from KFC restaurants. Chattanooga is one of four cities to receive donations for the repairs but there is a catch. The potholes have to be stamped, refreshed by KFC.

You're up-to-date. It's Friday, May 1st . Do stay with CNN and CNN.com for more on these stories or other news that develops today.

Body count refers to the total number of people killed in a particular event. In combat, the body count is often based on the number of confirmed kills, but occasionally only an estimate.
