“Mr. Amos has been a beloved member of our community for many years. He has also been an ardent supporter of our community and this sheriff’s office,” the release said.
Sheriffs did not provide additional details or comments about the ongoing criminal investigation.
“While Colorado Revised Statutes do not have a specific charge titled ‘elder abuse,’ there are other underlying crimes in Colorado that would commonly be perpetrated,” the sheriff’s office noted.
He has three projects in the works, including “The Last Rifleman” with Pierce Brosnan and “Capture the Flag” with Dick Van Dyke, Louis Gossett Jr. and Barry Corbin.
