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

This Week On America's Most Wanted

The following cases will air this Saturday on America's Most Wanted. You can catch it at 9pm on your local Fox station.

Jelmo Kirkland: Caught on Tape: Jelmo "Skeebo" Kirkland was taken into custody on Monday evening after a viewer tipped the police to his whereabouts. Kirkland was wanted for one of the most brazen murders ever caught on tape in the Miami area.

Happy Pham: Cops in Houston, Texas have been searching for 23-year-old Happy Tran Pham for almost two years. They say Pham was "unhappy" because the girl he was dating went back with her old boyfriend. Houston detectives believe Pham's jealousy led to the murder of 29-year-old Pierre Mai, and they have surveillance video of the crime.

Anibal Mustelier: Federal agents haven't given up searching for a fugitive who disappeared from south Florida in the late 1990's. Police say Anibal Mustelier is wanted for various charges including, plotting a man's murder and coordinating a bank heist that netted millions of dollars worth of jewelry. Investigators believe it's only a matter of time before they catch up with the man called the "ghost".

James Huden: Police tell AMW that Russ Douglas' marriage was on the rocks, but despite the turmoil between him and his wife, Brenna Douglas, he joined his family for Christmas in 2003 at their home on Whidbey Island, Wash. But one day later, cops say Russ Douglas was killed in a remote part of the island after being contacted by one of Brenna's friends. Now, authorities are looking for the suspected gunman and husband of that friend, James Huden.

Juan Cruz-Hernandez: To the outside observer, 33-year-old Juan Cruz Hernandez seemed like the consummate family man. The Salt Lake City, Utah man worked long hours as a truck driver, doted on his children and hosted neighborhood block parties. But beneath his gregarious personality he hid a sick secret: cops say he showered one of his 11-year-old neighbors with gifts and compliments for years before sexually abusing her.

Reyna Navar: When Maria Exberger broke off her short relationship with Miguel Gonzalez, nothing could have prepared her for the harrowing life and death situations that would soon follow. Cops tell AMW that Gonzalez and his partner-in-crime, Reyna Navar, not only kidnapped Maria, they shot her in the face, and left her for dead in a San Bernardino, Calif. alleyway.

Don Fritzsche: When 33-year-old registered sex offender Don Leo Cox Fritzsche got out of jail, he was given a chance to start over. Shoshone County, Idaho authorities say that after his release, he got married and moved in with his wife's family, then molested her 10-year-old daughter.

Carl Eder: El Cajon, Calif. resident Thomas Pendergast was driving on the San Diego Freeway in the fall of 1958 when cops say he noticed a hitchhiker on the side of the road. Thomas offered the 16-year-old a ride and later decided to invite the homeless teen home. El Cajon cops say that six weeks later, hitchhiker -- Carl Alfred Eder -- was arrested for murdering Thomas' wife and four children.

Jean Marie Jean Francois: On the outside, cops say Jean-Marie Jean-Francois may have seemed like a friendly, church-going family man. But police say nothing could mask his obsession with voodoo, seduction and pain -- which cops say eventually spiraled into a deadly mess.

Renee Kyles: Michigan authorities are searching for Renee Kyles, who cops say disappeared off the streets of Kalamazoo, Mich. Authorities say the grandmother vanished without a trace, and they're hoping someone can point them in the right direction to bring her home.

Jabalee Double Homicide: Ron and Christine Jabalee were savagely murdered in their own home on October 7, 2006, and their children are desperate for clues that will reveal why someone killed their beloved parents. Now, the local Crimestoppers organization is offering a $160,000 reward to shake loose the facts of the tragic crime.
