William Santos: Police say illegal alien William Roberto Santos was considered a trusted member of his community, and was a dedicated member of his church. But police say this farm hand had a dark secret, and it wasn’t long before the whole community had figured out what he was really doing in Kentucky.

William Santos

Michael Registe: On the night of July 20, 2007, detectives in Columbus, Ga. responded to a shooting incident and found two student athletes shot execution-style inside of a Chevy Blazer. Cops say the suspect is on the run, and may have fled to the Caribbean.

Michael Registe

German Ramirez: On April 28, 2006, cops say two unsuspecting women were attacked by the same man, German Ramirez. However, police tell AMW that his first attempted rape involved the daughter of the woman he was dating back in 2005. Over a year later, Ramirez would strike again…two more times. Now, police in South Gate, Calif. are hoping that AMW viewers can help put German Ramirez behind bars.

Ralph Skundrich: The FBI says Ralph Skundrich tried to pull off what he thought was a foolproof robbery scheme. When the plan unraveled, Skundrich was put on house arrest — but according to agents, his electronic monitoring bracelet wasn’t enough to keep this career criminal under wraps.

Ralph Skundrich

Muammer Aldailam: Muammer “Mike” Aldailam has evaded Bronx police for more than a month, but now leads are flowing in. Police are following leads all throughout North America so they can finally collar Aldailam. In a moment of passion, cops say Aldailam shot and killed his girlfriend after she tried to break off their relationship. Authorities believe Aldailam may be desperate to get back to his native country of Yemen.

George Navarro: Melesio Martinez was known simply as “Daddy” to his two small children. His wife describes him as a hard-working construction worker that worked ten hour days and still had time to play and entertain his kids. That all changed one night in September 2001 when the Martinez family went into a Granada Hills, California liquor store and ran into George Navarro.

Lorenzo Curry & Janora Sanders: Cops say Lorenzo Curry watched himself on America’s Most Wanted, then packed up his fugitive girlfriend and their young daughter and hit the road.

Lorenzo Curry & Janora Sanders

Ramon Gaspar: Police say a 29-year-old woman was resting at a Los Angeles hospital after a surgery when a male nursing assistant, Ramon Eduardo Gaspar, entered her room.

John Walsh At Sprint All-Star NASCAR Race: John Walsh and the AMW crew headed down to Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. recently to catch the Sprint NASCAR All-Star Race, and to catch up with some of racing’s biggest stars, including Kurt Busch and Kasey Kahne.

Esther Reed: After almost nine years on the run, an AMW tipster brought accused con artist Esther Reed’s life as a fugitive to an end on Saturday night in suburban Chicago. Reed — who police say stole identities and conned her way into the Ivy League — faces 47 years in a federal lock-up and over $1 million in fines.

Esther Reed

Stanek and Ayers: Officer Doug Stanek’s dream was to become a police officer, but he couldn’t because of his weight. Instead, he became a paramedic for five years. What he didn’t know at the time was that after becoming a cop, the skills he learned as a paramedic would be the only things standing between his partner and death.

Stanek and Ayers

Aaron Garcia: Aaron Lopez Garcia’s no stranger to Washington law enforcement. As a Norteño gang member, he racked up multiple charges ranging from rape to assault; when he was sentenced to 10 years in prison, it seemed like the last anyone would hear from him for a while. But Garcia orchestrated a prison break and on November 29, 2006, he enlisted the help of fellow inmates to break out of the big house. While his cronies have all been captured, Garcia remains on the loose.

Aaron Garcia

Dennis Lilly: The warden at the last prison where Dennis Lilly escaped called him “just a little rascal”. Lilly has slithered his way out of four prisons and jails, and in his last escape from the Missouri State Penitentiary, he’s been gone the longest: since 1986. But a sighting as recent as 2001 has authorities hoping this clever criminal can — once again — be put back behind bars.

Dennis Lilly

Thomas Gleason: BMX Racing and teenage boys are not a good combination for Tom Gleason: after years of coaching kids in the extreme sport, police say he went too far and victimized several members of his team. Now, he’s racing to stay away from the cops and families aching for justice who want him caught.

Thomas Gleason

Leanna Warner: On Friday, July 8, 2005, police learned that Joseph Duncan, the man charged with kidnapping Dylan and Shasta Groene and murdering their family, wrote about missing 5-year-old Leanna Warner on his blog. Leanna has been missing since June 14, 2003. Investigators are looking into whether he might have had anything to do with her disappearance.
