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

This week, the following cases will be airing on America's Most Wanted, which can be seen on your local Fox station Saturday nights at 9pm.

Emigdio Preciado: Cops say Emigdio Preciado, Jr. is responsible for the Sept. 2000 shooting of L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Schaap. Preciado has remained on the loose, but he's found a home on an infamous list -- the FBI's Ten Most Wanted.

Jason Derek Brown: As one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted fugitives and a member of John Walsh's Dirty Dozen, Jason Derek Brown is topping the charts as one of the country's most elusive bad boys. The former toy salesman, from Salt Lake City, Utah, is wanted for robbing and killing an armored car driver outside a Phoenix, Ariz. movie theater in November 2004. Cops say Brown fled the scene on a bicycle with more than $50,000 in cash.

Robert William Fisher: Cops in Scottsdale, Ariz. say Robert Fisher couldn't be bothered to get a divorce -- so he murdered his entire family and blew up their home to cover his tracks. Now, 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.

Glen Stewart Godwin: Fugitive Glen Stewart Godwin became the only man to ever escape from Folsom Prison in 1987, and hasn't been seen since. Now, authorities would like to see this convicted killer move from "most wanted" to "most likely to spend the rest of his life behind bars."

Victor Manuel Gerena: The FBI says it won't give up the fight to find Victor Gerena, a thug who they say is responsible for one of the nation's largest-ever armored car robberies.

Jorge "Pepe" Alberto Lopez-Orozco: Police say Jorge Lopez-Orozco was living two lives simultaneously. When his worlds were about to collide, cops say he eliminated the problem and hit the road.

James "Whitey" Bulger: James "Whitey" Bulger vanished in 1995, but America's Most Wanted is still working with the FBI and law enforcement agents all over the world to track him down.

Alexis Flores: Alexis Flores is accused of a heinous crime: the rape and murder of 5-year-old Iriana DeJesus. The FBI linked Flores to the Philadelphia girl's tragic 2000 killing using DNA evidence, and now, everyone's out to find him. So far, he's earned a spot on the FBI Top Ten list and John Walsh's Dirty Dozen list -- and agents say they'll pursue the accused child predator until he's off the streets.

Pedro Enrique Falcon-Fuentes: As a member of Latino rap group Los Cambollanos, Pedro Falcon-Fuentes' music career was just beginning to take off. But that all changed in September 2007, when cops say Falcon-Fuentes committed a heinous act outside a Detroit nightclub.

Usama Bin Laden: After nearly six years, the search for Usama Bin Laden continues. On July 13, 2007, the U.S. Senate voted 87-1 to approve an amendment to double the reward to $50 million for information leading to his capture or death.

And an update on Bin Laden highlights:

Usama bin Laden: The reward for information that will lead to Usama bin Laden has risen to $50 million. After more than a decade of directing terror around the globe, the search for bin Laden continues. He's the world's most-wanted man, and authorities say there's nothing that they won't do to find him.
