Just a quick FYI about a 20/20 special that airs this evening about a homicide that occurred in Castle Rock in 2011. Please see the message below from Jocelyn at Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Some of you may remember a case we had of domestic violence murder-for hire that took the lives of Amara Wells and Bob Rafferty on 02/23/2011 in Keene Ranch/Castle Rock. The family has been working with 20/20 to produce an episode about this incident. The episode is set to air Friday night (3/29) on ABC. The family is requesting that we spread the word to encourage our personal and professional contacts to watch it. From Tammy Rafferty (wife of Bob): “Our goal is not only to honor Amara and Bob for their courage and heroism but also to bring awareness to domestic violence and hopefully promote changes in our public policy and laws.”
DCSO worked very closely with Amara in the numerous cases of domestic violence against her husband Christopher Wells prior to the homicide. After the homicide and a tireless investigation (also by DCSO), the individuals responsible for the murders were charged, convicted and sentenced. So please join us in watching this show and encourage those in your network to do the same. Help us to honor the victims and to further educate the community on the tragedy of domestic violence.
