Drifter Admits Killing John Walsh is relieved HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (UPI) - A drifter who said he wandered the country killing at random confessed Friday to the notorious 1981 kidnap- murder of &-year-old Adam Walsh, whose severed head was found in a Florida canal, police announced. Hollywi r >od Police Chief Sam Martin said Otis Elwood Toole, a 36-year-old partner of confessed multiple-killer Henry Lee Lucas, admitted that Adam was among 35 to 50 people he had killed. "He said he picked up the boy outside the mall, took him out to the turnpike," Martin told reporters at a dramatic late-night news conference. "He lured him into his car, promising him candy and toys. "Toole confessed to 35 to 50 homicides," Martin said. "He gave details of murders he and Lucas committed. The details make Charles Manson sound like Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn.'' Assistant police chief Leroy Hessler said Toole gave details that were "grisly and heinous beyond belief." "There are certain details only he could know," Hessler. "He did it. I've got details that no one else would know. He's got me convinced." the
