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.Written by

The show's most spectacular success was the case of John List, who had murdered his entire family almost 20 years earlier. Thanks to an amazingly accurate forensic sculpture to account for his age since his last known photograph, List was captured on June 1, 1989, less than a week after the broadcast. He had adopted the pseudonym Robert Clark, and lived in Denver, Colorado and Midlothian, Virginia. On April 12, 1990, a New Jersey court convicted him of five counts of first-degree murder, and he was sentenced to five life terms in prison. List died March 21, 2008, in a Trenton, New Jersey prison from complications of pneumonia. He was 82. 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.
