Yeah Dennis Farina does a decent job, but Robert Stack made the show what it is. As with AMW, UM does a better job at updating on cases it featured. They only ever made updates if it was a repeat segment with new info or it's captures.
So far seasons, 1 to 4 of the Stack era series are up while the entire Farina era series are up both in Amozon and YouTube.

The show "Behind the Music" had a profile on Wallace. It talked about the LAPD scandal and one of the cops involved in the scandal might be the suspect in Wallace's murder. It also had a more recent edition in which it talked about Russell Poole's and Greg Kading's work in the case.

The biggest factor is Suge Knight. He at least have an idea of who killed Shakur and I wouldn't be surprised if the drive-by that killed Anderson was under his orders. He's been reputed to have shady to criminal elements in his business life despite claiming not to be a gang member. But his recent stunt in claiming who were involved in Shakur's murder is extremely sketchy.

I watched the UM segment while it was on YouYube. What stuck out for me was how two leads escaped from under law enforcement's nose. If "Antonio" is still alive and in the US, they should find a way to reach him.

Huge development in this case. One of the victims is related to a convicted murderer in CA. The catch, the murderer in question was under numerous aliases and did jail time in numerous states so his true identity is not known.

From the FBI profile:
"Law enforcement officials are seeking information which will lead to the identification of an unknown individual known as John Doe 37. It is believed that this individual may have critical information pertaining to the identity of a child victim in an ongoing sexual exploitation investigation.
Videos containing John Doe 37 first came to the attention of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in June of 2014. The EXIF data embedded within the video files indicated that the files were produced in April of 2012. In addition, audio from the animated film "The Land Before Time" can be heard in the background of the videos.
John Doe 37 is described as a White male with brown hair and wearing dark-framed glasses."
Thoughts? It seems that in order to work around just showing the suspect in their compromising forms in these incriminating media, the FBI ECAP are using sketches. I doubt the clue of "The Land Before Time" in the background would be of help unless it's from a person close to the suspect who remembers it played around the time of the act. However, if the movie was played on a local station or cable channel around April 2012, it could lead to clues that might get one closer to identifying the suspect.
Anyone with information to provide should submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI:

From the FBI profile:
"Law enforcement officials are seeking information which will lead to the identification of an unknown individual whom law enforcement refers to as Jane Doe 36. It is believed that this individual may have critical information pertaining to the health and welfare of a child. Jane Doe 36 is not the subject of a criminal investigation and first came to law enforcement's attention in August of 2016.
Jane Doe 36 is described as a White female, likely between the ages of 30 and 40 years old. She has long, curly brown hair. In August of 2016, Jane Doe 36 was seen wearing a pink shirt and a pair of black pants with polka dots."
Thoughts? It seems that with some recent FBI ECAP profiles, the IJD in question may not be involved in the harming of the child, but appears in a media of investigation as the least compromising image and may know the person doing the harm.

When growing up with AMW, I always loved it's fast paced and breaking news format. Always an interesting feeling to see what batch of bad guys, missing people and cold cases they would showcase. But over the years since it's cancellation, I grew more critical of this format. Sure, more bad guys and cases covered means the possibility of one of them being solved. But with so many cases being covered, you skim over info and details which can possibly get a viewer to help solve the case, which was the point of AMW to begin with. With that in mind, a lot of AMW's segments serve the same purpose as one of those crime segments in the local news, just on a national level. You just know a bad thing took place with a bad person, but won't think much of it. So unless it's covered multiple times such a segment is only a footnote we forget or don't even know existed.
If anything, I think that AMW's format had outlived it's usefulness by the end of it's run. With TV in a crossroads and us living with an internet with sites that profiles cases with more info, something with a format like AMW maybe outdated. Overtime, I grew to appreciate the documentary and detail-foucused format of the Hunt which is already making an impact.

Fourteen-year-old Jeremy Bright mysteriously vanished right after telling his mother that he was headed to the Coos County Fair in Myrtle Point, Oregon on August 14-15, 1986. UM aired his case during both Stack and Farina eras. From the Charley Project:
Missing Since: August 14, 1986 from Myrtle Point, Oregon Classification: Non-Family Abduction Date Of Birth: May 25, 1972 Age: 14 years old Height and Weight: 6'0, 140 pounds Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian male. Brown hair, green eyes. Jeremy has a mole on his chin. He has scars on his forehead and nose. His feet are exceptionally large; his shoe size is 13. Jeremy's left index finger was broken at the time of his disappearance. Clothing/Jewelry Description: A black windbreaker jacket, a red tank top, blue nylon shorts and black Nike sneakers with red laces.
Jeremy attended the Coos County Fair in Oregon with his sister and a group of his friends on August 14, 1986. He became separated from them sometime that evening. Jeremy was supposed to pick up his sister at 5:00 p.m., but he never did. He disappeared during the course of the evening and has never been seen again.
Jeremy lived in Grants Pass, Oregon in 1986, but he had grown up in Myrtle Point and had many relatives living there. He and his younger sister enjoyed the fair and their stepfather agreed to take them there for the week so they could go to the festivities. He spoke to his mother on a pay phone on the day of his disappearance, and she stated their conversation was normal.
There were several possible sightings of Jeremy in the local area in the days following his disappearance, but none of them were confirmed. He was a basketball player in 1986, and was looking forward to starting high school. Many rumors circulated about his disappearance: that he was accidentally shot during target practice or while swimming in the Coquille River, or that he died of a drug overdose at a party and his friends disposed of his body to avoid possible legal consequences. None of these stories have been substantiated, but the Coos County Sheriff believes he died the day he was last seen.
Authorities do not believe Jeremy left of his own accord. He was close to his sister and it would have been uncharacteristic of him to abandon her, and he did not take his wallet or extra clothes when he went missing. His mother and stepfather were going through a divorce in 1986 and he may have been somewhat troubled as a result; his grades dropped during the school year prior to his disappearance. However, he was described as a popular, likeable teenager and a star basketball player who was looking forward to the start of the school year.
Terry Lee Steinhoff is considered a person of interest in Jeremy's disappearance; he is Jeremy's former babysitter and Jeremy was last seen with him in a truck. In January 1988, Steinhoff stabbed a woman to death. He pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison. Steinhoff died in prison in 2007.
Due to the lack of evidence in Jeremy's case, it is classified as a non-family abduction and a potential homicide. His family believes he's deceased and they held a memorial service for him in August 2011, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his disappearance. Jeremy's mother thinks his body is somewhere in Coos County. His case is unsolved.
Thoughts?: It bizarre that there is so many conflicting theories on what happened to him. Let alone the fact that almost everyone who last saw him or involved have died.
