John Walsh: "Today Is a Good Day"

12/16/2008 5:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After 27 years, the killer of John Walsh's 6-year-old son was finally identified as Ottis Toole, and during a tearful press conference just moments ago, the "AMW" host made one thing clear, "Justice delayed is not justice denied."

Police said there was no new evidence in the case -- and that there had been enough to close the case "many years ago." The killer, a convicted pedophile, died in prison in 1996.

Despite his death, Walsh believes Toole is "getting what he deserves."

John Walsh is an opportunistic piece of crap, he would have killed his own kid just to get a TV show.

This savage killer should have died at the hands of those of us who HATE child killers, molesters, abusers, and not quietly in prison. Me, I would have severed his head and tossed it down the river, like he did Adam. Wow, I need an anger management course. My heartfelt sorrow again for the Walsh's and I hope it brings them some sort of closure, knowing this monster is burning in hell. Adam rest in peace, sweet child.

At least he has found his answer after so many years of helping others. God Bless his family. May they all be at peace now.

My comments in the last TMZ post were rude and I apologize. I wish Mr. Walsh nothing but the best.

Hey -- #1 -- YOU are a disgusting opportunistic piece of crap for writing that... what goes around comes around and it better hit you hard b/c what you said is sick.

Hopefully, justice will not be denied in the "Caylee Anthony" case.

I am so happy for the Walsh family!

The police are hanging this unsolved murder on a dead guy. John Walsh killed his own child to capitalize on the resulting fame. Sad yet true.

My heart goes out to the family.

But am I missing something? Why did it take until now to find out that he had made a deathbed confession if the man died in 1996?

Hey #1, no wonder you didn't put your name on that stupid response. Yea, he killed his kid for a tv show. Damn, I'm done with this site.

Actually, they've known for several years that this guy did it - Walsh has talked about it. I'm not sure why they took so long to make it official.

Finally, after all these years!
Adam's heartbreaking story has stuck with me, especially
back then when caring for my then three-year-old brother.
I am so happy for the Walsh family. Rest in peace, Adam.
