The murder of John Walsh’s son Adam back in 1981 prompted the hit television series ‘America’s Most Wanted.’ Today that unsolved murder has been solved.
Ottis Toole, had twice confessed to killing the 6 year old boy. The problem was he had confessed to many murders that turned out to not be true. Police aren’t saying yet what evidence solved the murder. Ottis Toole’s daughter has said that the murderer had confessed to her on his death bed.
John Walsh has done a world of good since his boy’s murder. Hopefully this can bring him some sense of peace that, at least, his son’s killer is not still out there somewhere.
“We needed to know. We needed to know. And today we know. The not knowing has been a torture, but that journey’s over.” — John Walsh
