Fox TV Show 'America's Most Wanted' and St. Louis Rapper Penelope Jones Team Up

Penelope Jones Appears On 'America's Most Wanted' To Help Solve The Senseless Murder Of Her Brother

NEW YORK, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Penelope Jones, a bourgeoning Motown Records hip-hop star, will appear on the FOX TV's long running crime-fighting show, America's Most Wanted, to help solve the murder of her brother, Tony Jones. Tony was fatally shot in October, 2003 in front of his six-year-old son in their Illinois apartment. The program will air on FOX, February 18, 2006, at 9:00pm ET/PT (8:00pm CT). Penelope Jones, a St. Louis native says, "not only is he my brother, but I'm part of that community. I hope that my presence will help generate leads and make people who may know something about my brother's murder come forward."

A single mother and a self-admitted 'reformed hustler' herself, Penelope has worked hard to turn her own life around, becoming a fitness trainer before signing to Motown Records as a much sought after rapper, with her debut solo album scheduled for release later this spring. Her debut single, "Miss You (With That Foolishness)" will be going for radio adds in a few short weeks.

America's Most Wanted, hosted by John Walsh, has already captured over 850 fugitives in its 18 year run. Anyone can contact AMW anonymously by calling 1-800-CRIME-TV or by visiting www.amw.com.
