Well it's been a real pleasure to see these episode summaries, thank you for writing these up walshfan! Hopefully some more of the mentioned cases that are still unsolved get justice for the victims in the next couple of years.
Thanks so much for posting these! It's been great seeing your recaps of all these old shows that many of us have never seen! I only started watching the show in late March 2002 and have only seen a few episodes that aired prior to that This definitely helps fill in some gaps in the episode guide of the show, which, sadly, will probably never be 100% complete. But this'll put a dent in it
In an effort to try and identify the episodes where no date is known, I've been doing some digging online, using archived AMW profiles as well as other sources online, and I think I've figured out dates for some of these unknown episodes.
Half of episode from late February, 1998, from San Francisco, CA
Tony Amati - Wanted for the murders of 3 random victims and the attempted killing of another. Also wanted for his part in the burglary of a gun shop in which 70 guns were stolen. The former straight-A student was then-recently added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List. (Captured within days of broadcast)
This was February 21, 1998. There were only two episodes that aired in February 1998 - this and the following week's - and when the "new" amw.com uploaded Tony Amati's profile, it confirmed that he was profiled on the 21st, leaving no doubt in my mind this is the episode.
1998 episode (not sure, but I think this episode immediately followed the one I did just previous, or pretty close
Public Enemy #1: Eddie Mathis - another airing, lasting three minutes.
Chris Trickle - Race car driver was shot while driving in Las Vegas, suspect and motive unknown. His car drifted off the road and crashed into a billboard. He survived for many months afterward, but eventually succumbed to his injuries. New witness has come forward with some potentially valuable information, but authorities are seeking other witnesses.
I'm fairly certain this was April 4, 1998. AMW archives confirm Eddie Mathis was profiled on that day, plus the timeline matches up with Markeith Braxton's profile - he was caught a few weeks after this episode aired - and the death of Chris Trickle - he died in March 1998. Interestingly, in my research, I discovered AMW actually profiled Chris Trickle's shooting BEFORE he died in 1997. Tips helped find the person who called the police to report the shooting, but unfortunately the caller wasn't able to provide anything of value.
partial episode, special Canada's Most Wanted edition, from Vancouver, British Columbia, 1998 episode, exact date unknown
Stephen Toussaint - Worked in an embalming department in a morgue in Ontario and is wanted for killing his coworker Bob Ivins and attempting to kill his superior. Toussant was a virtual non-entity in the department, rarely showing up for work and coming to work drunk when did. He is also suspected in the arson of a church.
This episode aired on August 15, 1998. Archived amw.com confirms this was one of Dudley Forbes' profile dates (it has an incorrect date for Phokham Keomanivong, but the date it lists was days later and NOT a Saturday). Also, on Google Play, a summary of the episode describes a case that matches Stephen Toussaint's profile.
Bernardo Martinaj - Stabbed a guy to death in New York City after the two had accidentally bumped shoulders.
Glen Godwin - FBI's 10 Most Wanted member escaped from Folsom Prison (where he was serving time for murder) in 1987. Arrested in Mexico on drug charges thereafter, but escaped again. (Added to the list in 1996, removed in 2016 after 20 years. Still has not been caught.)
This was the following week's show, August 22, 1998. Archived AMW profiles list this as the only time Glen Godwin and Bernardo Martinaj were profiled on the same episode.
I've figured out a few more, but I didn't want to post all of them at once.
