The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

America's Most Wanted..

It's that time again where I share highlights from this Saturday's upcoming episode of America's Most Wanted. And, where I remind you that if you are going to watch one show this weekend, this is the one to watch. After reviewing the cases myself, I'm willing to bet that you'll agree when I say that this weeks' most wanted need to be found and brought in... and you'll never know when you might have the tip to help do that.

Unknown Fort Myers 8 Killer: After detectives recovered a cache of bones from eight men in a wooded area of Fort Myers, Fla., police are looking for some answers. Cops continue to try to find out who the men are, how they died and whether a serial killer is behind this gruesome mystery. AMW teamed up with a forensic artist to bring the men's likenesses back to life; do you recognize their faces, and can you help break the case wide open?

Check out the case here:

And the recreations of the victims' faces here:

William Roberto 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 up to.

Michael Jason 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.

German Perez 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.

Muammer Aldailam: Muammer "Mike" Aldailam has evaded Bronx police for over a month, and now cops need your help to bring him in before he disappears. 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: Cops say Lorenzo Curry watched himself on America's Most Wanted, then packed up his fugitive girlfriend and their toddler and hit the road. Lucky for him, because AMW tips put police only hours behind him. Now, U.S. Marshals are hoping your tips will get them caught for good this time.

Janora Sanders: U.S. Marshals in Kentucky say Janora Sanders is under the spell of a violent criminal: Lorenzo Curry, a man they say turned a normally reserved woman into a felon and a fugitive. AMW tips put authorities on the trail of the fugitive couple and their young daughter in Toledo. Now, U.S. Marshals are counting on AMW tipsters to catch the couple and bring their now 5-year-old daughter to safety.

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. The day after the woman was discharged, she reported to police that Gaspar had sexually molested her several times. Cops continued investigating, and after making a public appeal, several more victims came forward. Now, he's on the run from the law.

Fernando Palomino: Authorities in the Windy City say two men responsible for three brutal New Year's Day deaths are on the loose and should be considered armed and dangerous. They say they've got a third man in custody, and a fourth victim survived after being shot in the head.

Omar Maldonado: It's been seven years since cops say Omar Maldonado shot and killed 17-year-old Leah Tadeo at a San Diego area house party. Since then, law enforcement on both sides of the US-Mexico border have been hunting high and low for the diminutive Maldonado who police believe began working for a drug cartel south of the border. Maldonado's luck finally ran out on October 9, 2007 when cops in Tijuana, Mexico arrested the 5'2" fugitive after an AMW tipster pointed them in the right direction.

America's Most Wanted can be seen Saturday nights on your local Fox stations at 9pm. You can also check out their website, for ongoing coverage of these cases, and many others.
