SPECIAL EDITION OF “AMERICA’S Most WantedHUNTS FOR THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS PREDATORS SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 19, ON FOX

AMERICA’S Most Wanted takes a chilling look this week at the world’s most dangerous predators – serial killers – in a special edition airing Saturday, Feb. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Host John Walsh heads to Los Angeles, where L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck shares the latest details on the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer case. The “Grim Sleeper” – identified by police as Lonnie David Franklin – is believed to have killed more than 10 women in the Los Angeles area from 1985-2007. Although Franklin is in custody, the case is far from closed. Police need the public’s help to identify dozens of women whose pictures were discovered in Franklin’s possession.

This special episode will also show how serial killers hide among us. The show will feature experts from the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, who dispel popular serial-killer myths fueled by Hollywood and reveal how easy it is for these cold-blooded criminals to blend in with society. Walsh also talks with Melissa Moore, whose father, Keith Jesperson, led a double life as both a loving family man and the notorious “Happy Face” serial killer.

Over the course of 24 seasons, AMERICA’S Most Wanted has helped law enforcement capture more than 1,100 dangerous fugitives worldwide. The series is produced by STF Productions, Inc. John Walsh is host and executive producer, and Steve Katz is co-executive producer.
