TAMPA – The most wanted man in Tampa is now among America’s most wanted.
The profile of Dontae Rashawn Morris, accused in the killing of two Tampa police officers, is featured on the website for the Fox television show “America’s Most Wanted.”
The program, hosted by John Walsh, claims to have located more than 1,000 fugitives by soliciting tips from the public. The website is www.amw.com.
Police have searched for Morris since Tuesday morning. Hundreds of law enforcement officers from multiple agencies have been brought in to join the massive pursuit.
To stamp out any chance for Morris to find safe harbor, investigators have been tracking down his friends and relatives to question them about his whereabouts.
To encourage potential leads, authorities have set the bounty for Morris at $100,000 — the largest reward for a fugitive in the city’s history.
