`Small Town X’ winner among lost firefighters
Los Angeles-Among the people missing in the World Trade Center bombing is the winner from Fox reality show “Murder in Small Town X.” Firefighter and $250,000 winner Angel Juarbe has been confirmed as having been part of the first unit to respond to the tragedy.
George Verschoor, Bob Fisher and Gordon Cassidy, producers of the show, posted a message on Sept. 12 saying: “We appreciate and are touched by the many posts expressing your concern for Angel in the wake of the events in New York. Please know that your thoughts and concerns have not gone unappreciated by all of us here at Fox and by Angel’s family. As of 11 a.m. PDT, we confirmed that Angel is one of the many firefighters still missing. That is as much as we-or anyone-know at this time. As you’ve seen on television, rescue operations are continuing. As information becomes available, we will let everyone here on the board know more. Until then, we know you join us in sending our prayers and best wishes to Angel and his family.”
