AMW: HIGH TECH vs CHILD PORN

For Immediate Release… Tuesday, June 9, 2009

HIGH TECH vs CHILD PORN

FOX-TV’s “America’s Most Wanted” Highlights Florida’s First-in-the-Nation Statewide CyberCrime Sweep Using Groundbreaking Technology to Fight Online Predators

The Internet may have revolutionized communications, but it’s also provided a dark cover for some of the most twisted predators: perverts who make and distribute child pornography. State- of-the-art technology is now revolutionizing the way law enforcement fights back. This week on AMERICA’S MOST WANTED (Saturday, June 13th 9:00 PM ET/PT on FOX), host John Walsh will show viewers how authorities in Florida are using sophisticated technology – and how it’s yielded big results.

Governor Charlie Crist created Florida’s CyberCrime Unit in 2005, while serving as the state’s Attorney General, with a mission to protect children from computer-facilitated sexual exploitation. Under Florida’s current Attorney General, Bill McCollum, the CyberCrime Unit has expanded to include a staff of more than 30 in five offices throughout the state.

A task force made up the CyberCrime Unit, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service and local authorities recently conducted “Operation Orange Tree.” AMW crews were on hand as agents used the new high-tech tool to pinpoint locations where child porn was being downloaded – and to take down the suspected predators. While highlighting the advanced technology, the crime-fighting TV show will also ask its viewers to help cops locate several suspected predators who’ve slipped through law enforcement’s net.

In its 22 seasons, AMW and its viewers have helped capture more than 1,060 dangerous criminals, including dozens of child predators.

AMERICA’S MOST WANTED airs Saturdays, 9 PM ET/PT, 8 PM CT on FOX. AMW is produced by STF Productions; Inc. Lance Heflin is Executive Producer. Steve Katz is Co-Executive Producer.

Do you know an AMW All-Star?

Virginia Police Officer is First 2009 AMW All-Star Finalist

February 25, 2009 – A Roanoke, Virginia police officer who was seriously injured while attempting to apprehend an assault suspect has become the first weekly finalist in the 2009 America’s Most Wanted All-Star Contest, sponsored by Sprint.

On May 10, 2008, Officer Bryan Lawrence was working off-duty to provide security on a Saturday night when he heard on his radio that a woman had been assaulted at a gas station not far from where he was. Officer Lawrence spotted the two suspects and chased them. He was in the process of apprehending one suspect when the other assaulted him, kicking him so hard in the head that a shoe print was still imprinted on him a day later. The attack left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. He is currently in intensive physical therapy.

Officer Lawrence is as well known in his community for his good deeds as he is for his police work. For example, every year on Mother’s Day he would buy roses and bring them to a local nursing home. He also organized and ran an annual motorcycle fundraiser for Alzheimer’s patients.

Officer Lawrence is the first of eight weekly finalists to be chosen by the public in the AMW All-Star Contest. Any first responder, such as police, firefighter or EMT, is eligible for the contest, and any member of the public can nominate and vote for their favorite first responder online at AMW.com. The nomination process is simple; all people have to do is fill out a short online form naming their favorite first responder and explaining what makes them an All-Star.

Each weekly finalist will be profiled on America’s Most Wanted (Saturdays, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX). Through their online votes, the public will choose the grand-prize winner. In May, AMW Host John Walsh will present the 2009 AMW All-Star winner with a check for $10,000 at the NASCAR SPRINT Cup Series™ All-Star Challenge at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Nominations are open at AMW.com until noon (ET) on April 4, 2009. Members of the public may vote for their favorite first responder once a day, every day. Finalist voting runs through April 12, and the grand-prize winner voting will run April 16-May 5.

AMW: On Five-Year Anniversary Of Attack, Cops Hunting Domestic Terrorist

On Five-Year Anniversary Of Attack, Cops Hunting Domestic Terrorist

Police say Daniel Andreas San Diego is an animal rights activist who is willing to do just about anything to get his extremist views in the spotlight.

Federal agents say that five years ago today, San Diego took his activism to a new low: they say he targeted a company that he believed had ties with animal testing labs, blowing up two pipe bombs outside their office.

Less than a month later, cops say San Diego struck again, this time with a bomb that sent nails hurtling through the air at more than 100 miles per hour. No one was hurt, but investigators say that as long as San Diego’s on the loose, he could be planning his next attack.

To see how violent San Diego’s attacks have been, AMW’s Karen Daborowski spent a day with explosives experts at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va.

Karen watched as experts detonated a pipe bomb similar to those that San Diego used, and she says that she was amazed by its power. “It could easily have killed someone,” Karen says. “They put the bomb under a table with a computer, and after it blew up, you couldn’t tell what was there.”

Log on to AMW.com to see the amazing video of the FBI explosives tests.

Karen’s sources say San Diego is very smart, and could be receiving aid from terrorist groups around the world. Log on to AMW.com to see the clues that may help identify San Diego, including his unique tattoos. This Saturday night, tune in to help us bring down the man who the FBI calls a cold-blooded domestic terrorist.

AMW: After The Hurricane, A Murder In The Big Easy

After The Hurricane, A Murder In The Big Easy

As Tropical Storm Gustav bears down on the Gulf Coast this week, many Americans are thinking back to Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the region three summers ago.

After that storm, police say Edmundo Cerda-Anima traveled to New Orleans, looking for work as a contractor, rebuilding the community, but left a personal path of death and destruction in his wake.

In late May 2006, cops say Cerda-Anima raped and murdered 51-year-old Sandra Adams as she walked in a park in the New Orleans suburb of Metairie, La. Now, America’s Most Wanted is teaming up with authorities to help track down this accused killer before he strikes again.

AMW producer Sedg Tourison traveled to Louisiana to investigate the Cerda-Anima case, and he says that he knew from the very start that this story would be difficult to cover. “Anytime something like this happens, it’s terrible,” Sedg says. “New Orleans desperately needed help after the storm, and police sources tell me Cerda-Anima brutally robbed a family of their mother.”

Sandra’s son and daughter, Ryan and Alessa, have dedicated their lives to tracking Cerda-Anima down, and John Walsh has vowed to stay on the story until the man accused of killing their mom is behind bars.

This week, we’re asking the public to keep their eyes open for Cerda-Anima once again, and this could be the week we get tip that takes him down.

“People who do things like this,” Sedg said, “don’t just go back to being normal people.”

Log on to AMW.com and take a good look at Cerda-Anima. Then, tune in Saturday night as we head down to the Gulf Coast for a cleanup effort of our own: we’re working to sweep this lowlife off the street once and for all.

This Week on America’s Most Wanted

Dan Hiers: Dan Hiers — a former cop as well as an accused murderer and child molester — is on the U.S. Marshals’ 15 Most Wanted List, and John Walsh has added him to his Dirty Dozen list — the notorious group of fugitives he wants to see taken off the streets the most. Cops say he killed his wife, stole her truck, and fled three years ago, and he hasn’t been seen since.

Dan Hiers

Roy Hiatt: Cops say Roy Stephen Hyatt is a convicted sex offender on the run who still has an appetite for children. Police are looking for him on charges of downloading, possessing, and possibly distributing child pornography.

Roy Hiatt

Dionne Garcia: After several years of hard work, the Chicago FBI’s Joint Task Force on Gangs was able to indict 52 people in relation to the manufacture and distribution of PCP on the streets of the Windy City. Of all those indictments, only two people remain on the run. Agents say Dionne Garcia fled after being charged, probably with her common-law husband and their four children.

Dionne Garcia

Jose Orlando Lopez: Jose Orlando Lopez has been deported twice for crimes committed in the U.S., and authorities still can’t seem to get rid of him. They say Lopez has so little respect for this country that he raped a stranger on a busy street in New York. Police believe he’s running from his latest charges from 2004 to prevent being deported, again.

Jose Orlando Lopez

Taizhi Cui: In October 2006, Los Angeles’ Korean community was shocked by a triple murder that happened in their own backyard. Cops say the deaths were the work of a jilted lover hell-bent on getting revenge on an ex-girlfriend and her new paramour. However, authorities are still looking for the man they say pulled the trigger … Taizhi Cui.

Taizhi Cui

Kenneth Cofer: The fugitive task force in Oklahoma City hasn’t forgotten about Kenneth Cofer — and neither have we. Despite confusion about numerous look-alikes, Cofer is still a free man.

Kenneth Cofer

Edmundo Cerda-Anima: The manhunt for accused killer Edmundo Cerda-Anima has led agents south of the border. Investigators believe the former Hurricane Katrina contractor may be going back and forth between the U.S. and Mexico — and if he’s caught, he’ll have to answer for a lot more than crossing the border.

Edmundo Cerda-Anima

William Plemons: Police say William Plemons has a reputation as a real romantic … that is, until you get to know him better. Plemons carried on a series of pen pal relationships from behind bars — but according to authorities, he was more interested in money than love. When one woman threatened to unravel his alleged scheme, police say Plemons turned from Casanova … to killer.

William Plemons

Daniel San Diego: We’re looking back at the case of Daniel San Diego, accused of using violence to advance his own radical agenda. Law enforcement sources tell AMW he portrays himself as an animal lover and an activist, but the FBI says San Diego is a cold-blooded domestic terrorist — and they need your help to apprehend him.

Daniel San Diego

Giovanni Gonzalez: Police have discovered incriminating evidence against the father of missing 5-year-old Giovanni Gonzalez. Inside Ernesto Gonzalez’ apartment, Massachusetts State Police say they found what appeared to be blood-stained objects — including a mop that was apparently stained with blood and cleaned with bleach.
