In this series, John Walsh, the father of a murdered child hosts this show that illustrates crime stories which have lead to the capture of hundreds of fugitives from the law. With as much luridness and accuracy as possible, various crimes are dramatically recreated with an appeal for any viewer with information as to the crime and the perpetrators to call the show and the authorities and help the cause of justice.

The show's most spectacular success was the case of John List, a man who murdered his entire family in cold blood nearly twenty years earlier and was never caught. Using the standard dramatization and an amazingly accurate forensic sculpture to account for his age since his last known photograph, the show was instrumental in the identification and capture of the fugitive within one week of broadcasting the segment. List was captured on June 1, 1989 after having lived under the pseudonym Robert Clark in Denver, Colorado and Midlothian, Virginia. On April 12, 1990, he was convicted in a New Jersey court of five counts of first-degree murder and was sentenced to five life terms in prison. On March 21, 2008 List died at age 82 in a Trenton, New Jersey prison from complications of pneumonia. See more »

With garbage like so-called reality shows, Survivor, etc. which have absolutely no basis in reality, this is one show that truly deserves the title of a reality show, John Walsh has probably helped to solve more heinous crimes than any police detective in history. I don't watch AMW that often, mostly cuz where I live very little serious crime happens (I live in the boondocks), but I admire what Mr. Walsh is trying to accomplish, I think John Walsh deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his show, but I get the feeling that if he were to ever win such an honour he would donate the money to a charity that specializes in helping victims families cope with crimes that were thrust upon them by sick criminals.
