This Week On America’s Most Wanted

Jesus De La Herran – On Sept. 28, 2006, Joseph Drake, his wife Patricia, and a truckload of his family were driving home to Glendora, Calif. from a friend’s home in Pasadena. Chaos erupted when police say a drunk driver, Jesus De La Herran, smashed into the truck and fled the scene. Now an amputee, Joseph recalls to AMW about hearing a sound similar to a bomb just before he looked down to see his leg was practically gone. Now, cops are on the lookout for Jesus De La Herran, and they’re hoping to get some justice for a family that will never be the same.

Unknown Scherer Family and Genevieve Zitricki Killer – Weeks after the murder of Jenny Zitricki, a jogger found a picture of a woman next to a pair of rubber gloves. Was it the key to cracking this case or just another red herring? Thanks to AMW tipsters, they are closer to answering that question, but they still have a long way to go.

Rufino Castaneda – Rufino Castaneda — the rapist whose victim’s story touched everyone who saw it — has been sentenced for his brutal crimes. After being arrested by Mexican authorities in October 2007, U.S. Marshals hauled him back to Indiana for his trial. In April 2009, the courts ruled that Castaneda will remain locked up for more than a half-century.
