As police in Phoenix, AZ, continue their urgent hunt for two serial killers who have claimed more than a dozen lives, a desperate plea for help is going out from one Phoenix resident who well understands the kind of evil that is terrorizing the city. Jenn Carson knows this evil – because her own father is a convicted serial killer. In an exclusive interview with AMERICA’S MOST WANTED, Carson pleads with anyone in Phoenix to take action if they suspect a family member or friend of being one of the killers on the loose. “A serial killer can be the most unexpected person – your neighbor, the Boy Scout leader,” Carson tells AMW. “But to those close to those people, there are signs that their behavior has changed. As the adult child of a convicted serial killer that’s now serving life in California, I am pleading to all family members, all loved ones, all associates, all friends of the Phoenix serial killers to contact the police today.”
In the early ’80s, Carson’s father, Michael, was convicted of several murders he committed with his second wife, Suzan. Jenn Carson contacted AMERICA’S MOST WANTED after seeing the show’s recent coverage of the Phoenix killings, and asked that she be allowed to make her plea on the broadcast. The interview will be included in this week’s episode of AMERICA’S MOST WANTED, Saturday, Aug. 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
