Case Closed

Killer of John Walsh's Son Identified

After nearly three decades, police in Hollywood, Florida have closed their investigation into the 1981 abduction and murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh, son of America's Most Wanted host John Walsh. Authorities are naming Ottis Toole, a convicted pedophile who died in jail in 1996, as the killer. Toole twice confessed to the slaying only to deny his story later. Adam's disappearance inspired his father to advocate on behalf of missing children and start the America's Most Wanted TV show.
