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

The following cases will be featured this Saturday at 9pm on your local Fox station.

Terrence Washington: He's been on AMW four times in the last year, and federal agents in Nashville, Tenn. say a man known for escaping from the police has slipped away from authorities -- again. Terrence Washington has been behind bars in a Nashville prison since last April, but on Sunday, February 23, 2008, prison guards noticed that Washington was missing from his cell. Agents say Washington was last spotted just hours after his escape in northern Nashville. He was seen in a small, black, 4-door Cadillac.

Waqas Rehman: Florida police say Waqas Rehman is pretty computer savvy. That's because the 29-year-old is accused of luring a young girl into a real-life encounter with him after they "met" online. Cops say that what happened next is something no child should ever have to face.

Russell Rehrig: Pennsylvania cops are looking for Russell R. Rehrig, Jr., a convicted child rapist who was able to bond out of jail because of a clerical error and disappear.

Kevin Ta: Police believe Kevin Ta -- an alleged killer -- may be hiding out in Houston, Texas under a different name.

Adriano Jaramillo: She told her patients she was a doctor, specializing in plastic surgery. But police say Adriana Jaramillo has no medical training, and now, authorities have charged her with the death of former Newark police officer who sought Jaramillo for treatment.

Ben Hunter: Ben Walter Hunter, 40, was supposed to be teaching 11- and 12-year-old boys at a Lancaster County, Va. school how to wrestle. But instead, cops say Hunter left at least one boy wrestling with a dark secret.

Dominic Lyde & Derrick Benjamin: Police in North Carolina have arrested Dominic Lyde, one of two men wanted in one of the country's largest armored car heists. Police say Dominic Lyde played a role in stealing nearly $10 million -- $5 million of which is still missing, along with another man, Derrick Benjamin.

Miguel Torres: For years they enjoyed what seemed to be a storybook romance -- a love so strong they didn't even feel the need to formalize it with vows. But after Barbara West married Miguel Torres, she found that her new husband had a dark side ... one that would drive him to violent extremes.

Michele Comstock: Michele Comstock was convicted of manslaughter in absentia in 1992. Fourteen years later cops still haven't caught up with this elusive fugitive. But now they're hoping that a new age-enhanced picture will help put Comstock behind bars for good.

Artur Martirosyan: Police say Artur Martirosyan fled Colorado after being questioned by police in connection to a 1998 murder spree. Cops say they have enough evidence to put him behind bars -- now all they have to do is find him.

Justin Sparlin: Authorities on two continents are on high-alert for a veteran of the war in Iraq, AWOL from his Army duties, who stands accused of raping a child. Cops in Ottawa, Ill. say that Justin Sparlin bolted before they could put the cuffs on him for raping a 12-year-old girl. Now, the international spotlight is focused on this fugitive Army Specialist.

Brianna Denison Killer: AMW's John Walsh and the Reno police have teamed up and released a new video that contains the facts of the investigation into Brianna's death -- and how you can help bring the killer to justice.

AMW All-Star: A Pinellas County, Fla. Sheriff's Deputy whose day-off trip to a shopping mall turned into a life-or-death confrontation with armed carjacking suspect has become the second weekly finalist in the 2008 America's Most Wanted All-Star Contest.
