Adam Walsh's Murder Getting Second Look Ater New Information Comes To Light

Theories that serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer might have killed 6-year-old Adam Walsh are gaining momentum. Adam's father, John Walsh, host of 'America's Most Wanted,' says he doesn't believe it.

Adam was last seen alive in a Florida mall in 1981 when he was out shopping with his mother. He was abducted and a massive search was underway. Adam's head was found 100 miles away. The rest of him was never recovered.

Dahmer was arrested 10 years later, in 1991, when one of his victims escaped and flagged down police. Police were shocked to find Dahmer's apartment to be a house of horrors, with home photos of bodies in various stages of dismemberment, a severed head in the refrigerator and a number of preserved body parts hidden around the residence.

Upon seeing Dahmer on the news, a witness to Adam's abduction called police to say that was the man he saw take the child. Two other witnesses described someone dragging a struggling boy into a blue van the day Adam was kidnapped. Dahmer fit the description.

Dahmer lived in Florida close to where the abduction occurred when Adam went missing, and he had access to a blue van. Dahmer's particularly gruesome M.O. fits what became of Adam Walsh.

While the circumstantial evidence seems intriguing, Dahmer, who was killed in prison in 1994, was questioned about Adam's murder and denied it. He was forthcoming about other murders he committed, including his first in 1978 when he was just 18 years old.

Adam's father John doesn't believe Dahmer was involved. Walsh is convinced that Ottis Toole, another serial killer, was responsible for Adam's death. Toole had confessed then recanted. His companion claims he saw Toole in possession of Adam's head.
