Top Crime-Fighting Show Offers Help to Parents and Teens

In 20 seasons of groundbreaking reality television, FOX�s AMERICA�S MOST WANTED has never been afraid to take on the country�s most dangerous fugitives and empower crime victims to fight back. Now, in a special episode airing Saturday, Feb. 3 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, AMW tackles an issue that many victims are afraid to talk about: teen dating violence.

It�s estimated that one out of every four American teens experiences some kind of abuse in his or her romantic relationships. And one out of three knows someone who has been physically abused by his or her partner. Yet, tragically, many teenagers caught in a devastating cycle of dating violence are too afraid or embarrassed to report the abuse � or, even worse, don�t realize that it is abuse.

In this special episode of AMERICA�S MOST WANTED, host John Walsh aims to raise awareness of the issue and empower both teens and their parents to get help. Walsh taped the show at a high school near Austin, TX � a city that knows the dangers of teen dating violence. The program will include a segment about the murder of 15-year-old Ortralla Mosley, an Austin high school student who was stabbed to death at school by her 16-year-old boyfriend when she tried to break off their relationship. In addition to the information Walsh will provide in the broadcast, the AMW website, www.amw.com, will offer parents and teenagers tips about danger signs to look for, and ways they can get help.

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