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 3/21/09

This week the following cases will be aired on America's Most Wanted. You can watch AMW at 9pm on your local Fox network, Saturday nights. Or, visit their website for more information on these cases, and many others.

Wendale Davis Killer: Wendale Davis, 16, was known as 'Sweets,' and to those who knew him, the name was a perfect fit. On April 23, 2006, Wendale was talking with a female friend outside her Bakersfield, Calif. home when a car driven by gang members rolled up looking for trouble.

Wendale Davis Foundation: The Wendale Davis Foundation was born out of a senseless murder, and now uses that tragedy as a platform to make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth in the community of Bakersfield, Calif. and beyond.

Kisha Rutledge: Milton, Ga. police say escort service owner Kisha "Key" Rutledge had one of her clients killed because he was paying his prostitutes directly, cutting out the vicious madam's commission. Cops say they need your help to bring Rutledge to justice.

Michael and Teven Collins: Cops say a sex offender and his fugitive son are on the run after beating a cross-country skier nearly to death in the forest.

Jessica Martinez: It's a 19-year-old question that still plagues the family of a murdered little girl, and authorities in Bakersfield, Calif. haven't given up hope. On May 10, 1990, Jessica Martinez vanished while playing near her home, before the 4-year-old's body was found in a field, nearly 15 miles from home.

Mark Everett: Former child star Mark Everett has been identified by authorities as the man at the center of a deadly police standoff in a Los Angeles suburb on December 23, 2008. Investigators say Everett, 39, took his 7-year-old son, Benjamin, on the run after the 2004 murder of the child's mother -- Everett's ex-girlfriend. Now, the FBI tells AMW that Everett was killed when police attempted to rescue Benjamin and take the fugitive father into custody.

Duncan and Jack Connolly: An AMBER alert has been issued in Illinois for 7-year-old Jack Connolly. Cops say Jack, and his 9-year-old brother, Duncan, were abducted by their father, 40-year-old Michael Connolly.
