ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER JOINS THE MANHUNT ON "AMERICA'S MOST WANTED," SATURDAY, APRIL 26, ON FOX
As John Walsh Hunts for a Child Killer and a Serial Rapist, California Governor Joins Push to Take DNA Samples
from Additional Criminal Suspects
(April 22, 2008) � AMERICA'S MOST WANTED host John Walsh welcomes California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the iconic crime-busting show Saturday, April 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. As part of Walsh's hunt for some of the nation's most dangerous criminals, he met with Gov. Schwarzenegger at a state-of-the-art laboratory in Sacramento where DNA testing is conducted to discuss the importance of expanding law enforcement's authority to take DNA samples from criminal suspects. Gov. Schwarzenegger was instrumental in helping pass California's Prop 69, which mandates taking DNA samples from felony suspects not just convicted criminals. California is one of only a handful of states with such a policy, and Walsh is calling for all states to implement similar regulations. Both he and the governor feel that a comprehensive national DNA database will not only solve more crimes, but also ensure that innocent people are not wrongly convicted.
In addition to his visit with Gov. Schwarzenegger, Saturday's AMW broadcast will feature Walsh hunting down a serial predator known as "The NorCal Rapist," who has attacked at least ten women in Northern California. Walsh will also ask the public to help identify the cold-hearted killers of a 7-month-old child in Sacramento.
