of on Parents Seek System For Finding Children re- HOLLYWOOD, Fla. Saying "it's too late for Adam but it's not too late for other children," the parents of Adam Walsh have called for a national computer system to aid in the search for missing children. The 6-year-old boy's severed head was .found Monday in a canal along the Florida Turnpike near Vero Beach. Police speculate the killing was the work of a dangerous "psychopath" who could kill again. "Little children can't vote, little children can't pay taxes, so politicians aren't aware of the problem," John Walsh said Wednesday at a news conference with his wife, Reve. He said a reward fund of more than $120,000, that was started to help locate their son will be given to bona fide groups involved in finding miss- ing youngsters. The Adam Walsh Memorial Fund also will be used for lobbying on the missing children issue, said Walsh, vice president of the new Paradise Grand Hotel in the Bahamas. Meanwhile, police Lt. Richard Hynds said Adam's killer is a dangerous "psychopath" who could kill again. Authorities have no solid leads in the case. Broward County medical examiner Dr. Ronald Wright said Wednesday the lad was killed about 10 days before his head was found in the Indian River County canal. The youngster disappeared July 27 from a Hollywood shopping mall. Wright's office will conduct further examinations before ruling on cause of death, but said "there is no doubt it is homicide."
