We're all about to get a better look at the person who killed a mother and daughter at the Town Center Mall.

Simon Property Group, the company that manages the Mall, announces how they are intensifying efforts to catch the killer.

A flier containing the new color sketch of the suspect will now be placed at every entrance at the Town Center Mall. Multiple copies will also be available to any shopper who wants one at guest services.

Fliers have also been handed to the more than 250 stores in the mall. Simon Property Group owns seven other malls in South Florida, including the Palm Beach Mall and the Boynton Beach Mall. Those other malls already have the new fliers to hand out. Soon, they'll have the fliers at their entrances, as well.

The company estimates 8,000 shoppers will see the sketch everyday. They say they felt the need to take these step to make their malls remain safe places to shop. They encourage other areas in the mall to take similar steps.

Lydia Gilmore, Simon Property, says, "Please, please share the sketch with family member with friends, with neighbors. The wider the distribution, the better the chances of catching a suspect."

In addition to the fliers at the mall, Simon is working with Crime Stoppers to develop public service announcements for local movie theaters. They're also sponsoring a moving billboard featuring the sketch.

The company also plans to work with a Boca Raton task force, made up of community leaders, to come up with even more ways to catch the Bochicchios' killer and keep the city safe.

Meanwhile, America's Most Wanted used the first half hour of their show Saturday night to profile the cases connected to Boca's Town Center Mall. The episode revealed a lot of new information.

We knew the killer used handcuffs and zip-ties to bound his victims. But, according to Saturday night's show, Nancy was fighting so hard for her life, she actually broke the handcuffs that were around her wrist.

The Boca Raton Police Department released new video showing Nancy and Joey walking through the mall near the Sony store. About 10 minutes later, their car is spotted driving through an ATM at a nearby bank.
