Well we don't know what In Pursuit will look like. If it's like AMW and an overall crime show and all for it. If it's like The Hunt and only showcases 1-2 cases an episode during a 8-16 episode season, I'd be for it but only if it was one of only one or two non-fugitive cases. (Alex Anaya can be the lone unsolved case while say someone like Kyron Horman or Ayla Reynolds or one of those high-profile missing children cases can be the lone non-parental abduction case). The problem with that is the Abby Williams/Libby German case is probably the most likely imo if they ever did an unsolved with no known suspect case and don't have enough episodes to take a chance on more than one.

Some other possible suggestions among probably well over hundred that have or are/were being considering for Season 1.
Ferrell Pride - Wanted out of Missouri since 2014, charged with allegedly scamming over $100,000 from his elderly relatives. Has a history of forgery charges and lawsuits relating to his various businesses. He would be extremely distinctive if he still has that feral beard as Scumhunter mentioned which would cause a lot of people to potentially recognize him.
Martin Olmedo - Wanted out of Missouri since 2012, accused of being involved in a drive-by shooting that killed a four-year old boy in his own home.
James Watts - Wanted out of Pennsylvania since 2008, charged with shooting a woman to death and shooting and wounding her husband during a botched robbery. I'm suggesting this case since this is a US Marshals case and I'm surprised James Watts has been on the run for a decade. Some more in-depth national attention may be what's needed to finally apprehend him.

A few other suggestions I wanted to mention here.
Wilda Ira Stokes - In 1999, Wilda escaped from the Coffee County jail in Alabama while serving a one-year sentence for child molestation and awaiting trial for another case of alleged child molestation. Only profiled once by AMW in early 1999, unlike with a lot of other prison escapee fugitives. He would only be around 60-61 years of age today I believe so I feel this is quite a solvable manhunt, there's just never been much publicity at all on this case.
Stepan Zeytunyan - Marshal arts expert accused of sexually assaulting two teenage girls in Colorado. He's been on the run since 2015, with an up-to-date blog covering his manhunt. I guess the main decision on whether to profile him depends on how much detectives believe he fled to Armenia or if he may be in an Armenian community in the US somewhere.
Rathanak Chea - In 2012, Rathanak was accused of taking part in the murder of a Thailand refugee in Kansas where the victim was restrained and held down by several men before being nearly decapitated. This is a suggestions solely on how brutal the murder was and the extremely tragic circumstances.

Was actually thinking of Stepan Zeytunyan the other day myself- has the perfect backstory to make an interesting tv fugitive case. (taking nothing away from the horrible crimes he's allegedly committed).

Saw James "Toby" Roberts is our case of the week and re-read the old amw.com case description. I feel he would be a fitting possible case for In Pursuit, especially since he's probably still resided in the US for the past 15 years of his life as a fugitive. The attempted murder charge is bad enough but the alleged intent to have hung a 4-year old to death is even more terrifying.

Now that we are getting closer to the premiere of In Pursuit early next year, I still wanted to offer some additional case suggestions. All of the next three cases are relatively recent to match the first season of AMW back in 1988.
Kevin Michael Waguespack - Accused of the 2015 murder of his girlfriend, Catherine Dyer in Austin, Texas. Kevin fled initially to Mississippi before being arrested. Due to a judge's "really bad decision", Kevin was able to take off his GPS monitoring device and became a fugitive again in 2017 where he's still on the run as of today.
Richard Earl Towne - Charged with allegedly swinging a sword at three people in a New Braunfels, Texas home back in 2015. As a result, the victims suffered what can only be described as "beyond horrific and debilitating injuries".
Christian Stasenka - In 2010, Christian is alleged to have sexually assaulted a mentally-handicapped adult at a Tempe, Arizona group home.

I think for Season 2 In Pursuit should at least try to air Kevin Lamont Carter, Hazel Head, & William Willingham since those cases could use some added publicity.
Highest Priority Case: Murder Victim, Alexandra (Alex) Anaya Missing Person: Ashley Summers Most Wanted #5: Frantz Dieudonne Most Wanted #4: Barrett Preston Busschau Most Wanted #3: FBI Top Ten Fugitive, Bhadreshkumar Patel Most Wanted #2: FBI Top Ten Fugitive, Rafael Caro-Quintero Public Enemy #1: FBI Most Wanted Terrorist: Saif Al-Adel
Oh wow we're in season 2 suggestions already lol. Once again, how cold a case is should be taken into account as those as harder to solve and the first season at least is only 12 episodes. Kevin Carter and Hazel Head seem two of the more solvable of the cold cases though. William Willingham we only have one photo of, so perhaps a 15 seconds of shame imo.
