This Week on America’s Most Wanted


New York/Florida Serial Rapist Capture: AMW has repeatedly profiled the story of a courageous homeless woman who fought off a man who was raping her and in the process, grabbed the chain that dangled around his neck. The New York Police Department’s Manhattan Special Victim’s Unit has been just as vigilant – working with the victim and trying to find out who that chain belonged to. Nearly two years later, that chain, and the DNA on it has led to the arrest of 43-year-old Louis Alfonso. Cops have charged him with rape and attempted murder in the New York case, and believe he’s responsible for a number of other vicious attacks. This Saturday night, we’ll give you all the details on Alfonzo’s arrest. In the meantime, check out the story on

Pauley Perrette Update: This Saturday night, we’ll give you an update on AMW’s crime fighting partnership with NCIS star Pauley Perrette. Perrette teamed up with AMW to help investigators solve the murder of two young girls: Shannon Paulk in Prattville, Ala. and Raven Jeffries in Detroit. Perrette was touched by Shannon’s story because of her own family ties to the Prattville area, so she donated a $10,000 reward to help catch Shannon’s killer.

School Safety: For many youths, going away to college brings about new responsibilities in their lives. Living away from home allows certain freedoms, but also exposes young adults to harsh new realities. This is particularly true when students begin living on their own away from campus. Students for the first time in their lives have to deal with things like paying the phone bill and making sure that rent is in on time. But it also means that they need to be much more aware of the potential dangers that exist once they leave the comfort and security of on-campus living.

  1. Who can I contact about group for rights and capital punishment? I want to also find out more about the horrendous acts committed in Knoxville, TN on the young white couple. Also, to find out if they are calling it a hate crime, because of the Jena, LA incident. How can you say that assault was a hate crime and the Knoxville brutal torturing and killing of those kids wasn’t?
