Those who grew up in the eighties would have a better affinity with this case. In 1981 Adam Walsh, then a six year old, was killed by what many thought was a serial killer. The child Adam is none other than the child of America’s most wanted anchor John Walsh.
Case was in 1981 but it is only now that this file has been closed. Hollywood, Florida police says that the serial killed Ottis Toole, who himself died while serving prison sentence in 1996 was the kidnapper of the child. Ottis not only kidnapped the child but even decapitated the 6 year old boy.
Walsh family had been living this case for than two decades. No doubt they were sore and angry at it. So much so that the father John Walsh started America’s most wanted and initiated a process on how America treats missing children.
Only somebody insane or horribly mentally unstable would kidnap a 6 year old and decapitate them. Incidentally it was the head of the kid that was found by the fisherman. The body was never traced.
Ottis Bio and Wiki Information
Toole was Floridan by birth and his records state he was born in Jacksonville. Ottis’s father was called Elwood Toole and he was a family deserter when Ottis was about 3 or 4 years old. According to Ottis, his mother was a Satan worshiper and a religious nut who abused him a lot and dressed him in girls clothes. Even Toole’s grandmother from the mom’s side was a uber satanist who taught young Ottis rituals and practices of this cult.
Back to the John Walsh and Adam Walsh case, until Ottis confessed to this crime, many thought another serial killer was behind this despicable act of killing a 6 year old child. This killer was named Henry Lee Lucas and he had been convicted of going on a killing spree which earned him the misnomer of America’s most prolific serial killer. However, he turned out to be a fraud on that one as well as later he retracted his confessions.
Lucas was found involved in over 600 murders. Do the maths and you will realize that turns out to be about a murder a week during his release from the jail and again rearrest.
