On Friday, August 31st, America’s Most Wanted (AMW) will feature two cases investigated by the Broward Sheriff’s Office. The first is the case of Isaac Amos – wanted for attempted murder after he savagely beat a woman outside of a supermarket in Lauderhill. Sheriff Al Lamberti profiled the case on AMW back in February.

This Friday, AMW will feature a re-enactment of the Amos case, which is capture #1,193 for the show.
