America’s Most Wanted Case 1:
Aimee Rhoads and her family went on a trip to celebrate her father’s life. She decided that she wanted to go scuba diving while there, so the family arranged for her to do so by picking someone on Trip Advisor.
Unfortunately, this boat was owned by Christopher Jones and Alison Gracey. On December 18, 2011, Aimee went on the boat, which ended up sinking. Everyone else was rescued, but Aimee was announced DOA.
It turns out Alison and Christopher were illegally operating their business and into shady deals for profit. They were also not following safety protocols.
Yodit Tewolde comes on to show the avatars of them….Alison is now 53 and could have changed her look. She also is from Ireland, so she has an accent.
Christopher is now 56 and about 265 lbs and also has an accent. He also wears aviators.
Aimee’s husband Pat recalls finding out about Aimee’s death and having to tell his little girl about it. Her brother Justin Richmond says Aimee would still be alive had the couple taken safety precautions.
The couple is now on the run, evading a variety of charges including manslaughter.
They were arrested in 2015 in St. Maarten and told to stay on the island, however, they ended up escaping again and were not see until 2017, when they were arrested in France. They have not been seen since.
Her entire family wants to see justice served.
Paul Holes says that they got careless by using their own names and going into the same business. He thinks it is only a matter of time until they are found again.
Aimee’s husband says it is mindboggling that they escaped again and that they will have their day in court.

America’s Most Wanted CASE 2:
Bob Tang is on the run after he found out his wife and best friend were having an affair. Rattana Kim, tells the story in her own words about how in 2017, her husband Piseth Chhay would always vacation with the Tang family. She realized something was up when Piseth made coffee for Bob’s wife Sokni and not her.
That day, they went on a hike, where Bob’s wife said she wanted a divorce. Bob was distraught, but he knew about the affair because he was spying on them before the trip.
When they got home, Bob said he wanted Piseth to move some furniture. This was the last time Piseth was ever seen. Bob claimed Piseth never showed up, so he is reported missing.
Yodit gives some tips on how to report a missing person, including giving as many details as possible about what they were wearing the last time they were seen before we get back to the case.
Rattana thinks Bob had something to do with the disappearance and he eventually becomes a prime suspect. The authorities look into Bob’s warehouse, where they find bags of body parts…which belonged to Piseth.
Investigators think it incredible Bob left so much evidence behind. Bob has been on the run ever since.
