(Also titled JEFFREY DAHMER'S DIRTY SECRET: THE UNSOLVED MURDER OF ADAM WALSH)
WHO REALLY KILLED ADAM WALSH?
Maybe it was Ottis Toole, as police say. But more signs seem to point to Jeffrey Dahmer.
"Had authorities fully explored Dahmer's time in South Florida, they would have found more evidence implicating him than Toole, The Miami Herald found."

In 2006, investigative true crime author Arthur Jay Harris first reported that Adam Walsh's killer was most likely Jeffrey Dahmer, not Ottis Toole.
Since then, he has compiled seven police witnesses who saw a man they identified as Dahmer with or close by Adam at the mall where he was last seen.
That was all in Book One: Finding the Killer. Did Jeffrey Dahmer kidnap Adam Walsh?
Now, Harris reports the rest of the Adam Walsh story no one else has told:
Book Two: Finding the Victim: The body identified as Adam Walsh is not him. Is Adam still alive?
Two weeks after Adam disappeared, a severed head of a child was found 125 miles north of the mall. By its teeth, a medical examiner identified it as Adam. Only in 2008 did the M.E.'s files become public record; when Harris saw them he realized how thin the ID was. Worse, the child's most essential identification documents were nowhere to be found: there had been no forensic dental exam, no autopsy report was ever written, and Adam's dental records had disappeared. This should never happen. Without those documents, prosecutors could never have brought his murder to trial because they never would have been able to legally prove that the dead child was Adam Walsh. And more than 30 years later, his case never has been to trial.
Even worse, from photos of the found child's teeth compared to Adam's last photo and last-seen-alive description, it's clear that the found child is not Adam Walsh. Those photos and documents are published here for the first time.
As it turns out, the Adam Walsh case is actually about two children:
A child who was misidentified as Adam, whose true parents were never found or notified; and
An investigation into the disappearance of Adam Walsh that ended prematurely with the identification of someone else as him.
Whatever happened, then, to Adam Walsh? Harris's years-long investigation has what may be the most stunning discovery of all.
