Sonia Paine, one of the bravest and toughest women ever featured on America's Most Wanted, has died at age 92.
For those long-time AMW viewers, AMW ran a segment a few times about how she helped take down Nick George "Little Nick" Montos in the mid-1990's.
Montos was a career criminal who was once on the FBI's top 10 list when he attempted to rob her antiques store in Brookline, Massachusetts and tied her up.
The then 73-year old Paine managed to untie herself and then attacked Montos with a baseball bat, during the struggle Paine managed to push the silent alarm, the police came and took the bloodied Montos out on a stretcher.
The story of her bravery was ran a few times on America's Most Wanted in the 1990's and early 2000's. My favorite part was when she said something like "pardon me but I beat the sh** out of him" LOL
I hope that during Sonia's 92 years she made a wonderful impression and impact on the people in her life that she loved and for her friends as well. She is a true inspiration to all of us as to how we can fight back and make a difference in our own way.
