SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- Using observation techniques taught by Speedway SuperAmerica to identify fugitives, Rita Burell, a Speedway employee helped "America's Most Wanted" capture two fugitives wanted for child pornography and rape of a handicapped four-year-old, and was interviewed Saturday, Nov. 23, on Fox network's "America's Most Wanted" television show.
"Early Friday afternoon we learned that 'America's Most Wanted' had requested an interview at a Canton, Ohio, Speedway location with Rita Burell, who recently recognized and identified two wanted criminals, after seeing their profiles on the program," said Chuck Rice, spokesman for Speedway SuperAmerica. "We coordinated Monday's taping, working with the 'America's Most Wanted' production crew, the local and area FBI, the Stark County Sheriff, the Canton police and Speedway employees."
According to Rice, the taping went well, and the segment aired for approximately 10 minutes, portraying Speedway SuperAmerica, "as a security conscious place to work and shop."
