Adam Walsh book to be highlighted at Beth Ahm Israel on July 27th

  July 27 is the 30th anniversary of the abduction and murder of Adam Walsh. Those of us who remember that horrible day recognize that from that day forward, the way we raise our children dramatically changed. No longer do we allow our children to play outside alone, wonder through the mall or go unattended.  John and Reve Walsh have taken this horrible tragedy and done wonderful things–from producing the television show America’s Most Wanted, to co-founding the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. All of this was done in memory of Adam.
Only recently has the murder been solved.  The book Bringing Adam Home, details the story of Detective Sgt. Joe Matthews’ 27 year investigation and determination that Ottis Toole committed this horrendous crime.  During that time, Detective Sgt. Matthews developed and marketed a state-of-the-art, scientifically validated, home DNA identification and legacy kit called DNA LifePrint.
Author Les Standiford and Detective Sgt. Matthews will be at temple Beth Ahm Israel in Cooper City on Wednesday July 27 to discuss their book, how the murder was solved, how the world has changed since 1981 and what we can do to protect our families in the future.  There will be an opportunity to purchase the book and have it signed.  It is a free event, but RSVP is requested.  954.260.8344
