California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to make a special guest appearance on America’s Most Wanted. Host John Walsh met with Governor Schwarzenegger at a state-of-the-art DNA testing laboratory in Sacramento, California.
Walsh and Governor Schwarzenegger discussed the importance of giving law enforcement the authority to take DNA samples from criminal suspects. California’s Prop 69 mandates taking DNA samples from felony suspects, and Governor Schwarzenegger played an important role in getting that legislation passed.
There are only a few states that currently have this policy, and California is one of the first. Walsh is requesting that all states pass similar regulations. Both Walsh and Governor Schwarzenegger think a national DNA database is very important and will help both in solving more crimes and making sure the innocent are not wrongly convicted.
Also, America’s Most Wanted will feature a piece on “The NorcCal Rapist,” who is responsible for attacks on at least ten women in Northern California. In addition, America’s Most Wanted will seek viewers’ help in tracking down the killers of a 7-month-old child in Sacramento.
America’s Most Wanted airs on Saturday, April 26 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET/PT on FOX.
