John Walsh Attempts To Catch More Predators

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dateline: NBC has achieved ratings success through its To Catch A Predator series, so now America’s Most Wanted is attempting something similar.

The episode airing Saturday (Feb. 17) is titled AMW: Sexual Predator Special Edition, but show host John Walsh insists producers aren’t trying to steal NBC’s thunder.

As he puts it, “We were doing sexual predators long before they were, but that show does a good job of setting up the stings.”

Still, Walsh says AMW isn’t so much interested in catching predators before they commit their crimes, but arresting “those that have already done something. We’re going after several fugitives on the run.”

One sexual predator that Walsh isn’t interested in at this point is deceased serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Although an author of true crime books has claimed he has evidence that Dahmer may have killed Walsh’s son, Adam, Walsh says Dahmer was eliminated as a suspect years ago.
