St. Louis Rapper Penelope Jones Team Up With America’s Most Wanted

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
