America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back Making a Difference Like Never Before Saturday, September 30, on FOX

[via press release from FOX]


Unprecedented Response by AMW Viewers to Help Crime Victim

Last week, AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK featured the story of Jacqueline - an elderly woman who lives on the street and was brutally raped and beaten by an unknown assailant in New York City. She courageously fought back and yanked a thick gold necklace from her attacker; DNA evidence on the chain linked the unidentified man to three other assaults on older women in Miami Beach.

While AMW is predicated on generating viewers' support to help authorities investigate crimes, the show's viewers went above and beyond this past week. After Jacqueline's story aired, the AMW Hotline was overwhelmed - not just with tips to help police investigate the case, but with hundreds of offers to help Jacqueline.

"The outpouring of love and support from AMERICA'S MOST WANTED viewers is unlike anything we've ever seen," said AMW producer Jon Leiberman. "Every week, we call on people to do the right thing and help us take down fugitives. This time, the viewers went a step further, not only by changing one woman's life - but by changing her entire outlook on the world."

In an effort to turn this heartfelt concern into action, AMW approached Care for the Homeless, a well-known and highly-regarded social services agency in New York, which will assist Jacqueline in rebuilding her life. The support of AMW viewers will help Care for the Homeless to make sure that Jacqueline - and other homeless women - receive the medical care, housing and support services they need to regain stability and safety in their lives.

An update on Jacqueline's story will air on tomorrow night's episode of AMERICA'S MOST WANTED (Saturday, Sept. 30, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Information about how to help Jacqueline can be found at the Care For The Homeless website, www.careforthehomeless.org. Details on the hunt for the rapist who attacked Jacqueline can be found at www.amw.com.

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK is produced by STF Productions, Inc. Lance Heflin is executive producer.
