Two unforgettable names; one tragic case: how are Jeffrey Dahmer and Adam Walsh related? In Frustrated Witness, Willis Morgan details the mountain of evidence that points to America's most notorious serial killer as the real murderer of Adam Walsh, whose 1981 disappearance and subsequent murder inspired his father, John Walsh, to channel his rage into becoming the crime-fighting host of the popular TV show America's Most Wanted.
In a Hollywood, Florida mall in 1981, the author encountered Dahmer near the time and place little Adam was abducted. This encounter sparked a theory that consumed well over three decades of the author's life. He has appeared as a witness both on television and in print. In 2010 he filed a lawsuit against the Hollywood Police Department, Florida State Attorney's Office, and one of the detectives involved in the Adam Walsh case.
As much as it is a case for Dahmer as Adam's murderer, Frustrated Witness is a study of how the HPD conducted the homicide investigation, becoming the greatest ally and defender of the man who would go on to become infamous for the murders he committed. Packed with charts, diagrams, photos, and letters, this is the most extensive collection of records to date of the Adam Walsh case.
