Adam Walsh's Killer Identified

John Walsh and his family can now put to rest who killed their six-year-old boy, Adam Walsh. Breaking news today cited that after more than a decade, the Walsh's have found out who decapitated their boy in 1981 after he went missing from a shopping mall.

As you know, John Walsh launched the television show, "America's Most Wanted" after the tragic death of his son, in his hopes that he could help other families who are searching for their own missing children.

Watch this heart-breaking video...


  1. My heart goes out to him and his wife. I can't imagine how anyone can do such a horrible crime in the first place. I admire his courage to make something good come of something so terrible by helping others.

  2. I remember when this horrible murder happened. My own child was just year old. As horrible as this was for the Walsh family so much good has come. Until Adam disapeared there was no hotlines, no one to really work to find the children. John has done wonderful things to help bring home missing children and also to help find wanted criminals. I know somewhere on some level Adam looks down and is proud of how his young life touched so many others.

  3. Gosh I just think this is so great they know who killed his son. John Walsh has done so much and he honors his son everday with his efforts to catch criminals. I just can't think of a better Christmas present. It just makes you cry when you think about it all. What a nice thing to put on your blog.

  4. John Walsh has done so many things since he and his wife lost their son to such a senseless tragedy -a true hero to others trying to cope with their own losses too.
    Just wanted to tell you this too Dorothy -Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and the best of New Year's as well.

  5. Thanks, Jeni! And Merry Christmas to you, too!
