Default Adam Walsh's murder is...Ottis Toole

After 27 years, police are going to officially close the case of abducted and murdered Adam Walsh, son of America's Most Wanted host John Walsh.

In 1981, Adam disappeared from a department store when his mother left him unattended to shop. Two weeks later, his severed head was found in a canal.

A sweeping manhunt was launched to find Adam's killer, but an arrest was never made. Two years later, a transient named Ottis Toole would confess to killing Adam, correctly identifying key elements of the investigation. But nothing was ever certain and Toole died in prison before further investigation could be conducted.

A niece of Toole's would later call into American's Most Wanted to say that he confessed to the murder on his deathbed.

Today, Tuesday, however, Hollywood Police Chief Chadwick E. Wagner will make a formal announcement at 2:30pm with John Walsh and wife Rev, pronouncing the case closed and Toole the murderer.

In 2001 Walsh himself said he believed Toole to be the murderer of his son, saying, "I believe Ottis Toole killed Adam. I believe that Toole is in hell right now, and I believe that he died a horrible death in prison."

Case closed.

Hopefully it will gave the Walsh family some peace.

This is great and all, but there is absolutely no new information being released today. They could have officially closed the case 12 years ago. Fox News and others are declaring "Mystery Solved". Not exactly...

There is still a following of people who say that serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was responsible for Adam Walsh's death; it made the news some time ago and caused a minor media frenzy.

Dahmer was discharged from the military due to disorderly conduct and when discharged he had told the Army to send him to Florida because "he never been there before". Dahmer was supposedly in Florida around the time of the Walsh incident.
Some witnesses came forward to state that they saw a tall, thin man wearing an army jacket carrying little Adam into a van. How credible these witnesses are is questionable and this is not considered to be a proven fact.

Some people also state that Dahmer "wasn't interested" in little boys because many of his victims were African-American men in their 20s. I wouldn't go by that because after all Ted Bundy raped and murdered an 11 year old girl (his last victim) when his MO was college-aged women. Sociopaths are unpredictable.

Dahmer didn't do it. I firmly believe Ottis Toole killed Adam, but today was nothing more than a symbolic ending to the case.
