Hey Henry……. The kid’s supposed killer was not even a “sex offender” which has been subject of conversation and argument for many RSO’s for years due to the hypocrisy of the Walshes (and irresponsibility as parents to begin with) …….”The more you know….”
Murder of Adam Walsh
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Adam John Walsh (November 14, 1974 – July 27, 1981) was an American boy who was abducted from a Sears department store at the Hollywood Mall in Hollywood, Florida, on July 27, 1981. His severed head was found two weeks later in a drainage canal alongside Florida’s Turnpike in rural St. Lucie County, Florida. His death earned national publicity. His story was made into the 1983 television film Adam, seen by 38 million people in its original airing. His father, John Walsh, became an advocate for victims of violent crimes and was the host of the television program America’s Most Wanted and currently, The Hunt with John Walsh.
Convicted serial killer Ottis Toole confessed to Adam’s murder, but was never convicted for this specific crime due to loss of evidence and a recanted confession. Toole died in prison of liver failure on September 15, 1996. Although no new evidence has come forth, on December 16, 2008, police announced that the Walsh case was closed as they were satisfied that Toole was the murderer.
