Also, the number of items sold on eBay with the words "Elizabeth Taylor" in the title shot up by 1600 percent Thursday, compared to last week, and the number of live listings with the words "Elizabeth Taylor" in the title increased by 24 percent Thursday since last week, CBS News National Correspondent Ben Tracy reports.
