hello, i am new here, and this is my first post. i'm sorry if this isn't the right place to post this, but i thought this was the most appropriate out of the choices.
in 1993 or 1994...possibly 1995, but i'm pretty sure it wasn't then... i watched an episode of AMW with my parents, and on the episode was a man who was a neighbor of ours almost 30 years before the show aired. i can't remember his name, and my parents are now dead. it's been bugging me. i am pretty sure the last name was Venus, but i can't find any information about anyone with that name.
our neighbor was shown as being wanted by the FBI because he was a hitman for the mob. we lived next door to each other on the coast in mississippi. my father and mother talked about him being a really nice guy. he had a family and his kid(s) (can't remember if one or more children - i think 2) played with us. i think mostly with my sister because i was a baby and toddler when we lived there.
he'd come over and sit with my dad and drink a beer or two on some evenings.
do any of you know how i can find a list of the people who were featured during these couple years? i found info on IMDB, but it doesn't cover those years. thanks
EDIT - i am not trying to glorify a murderer. i don't think it's cool to have known someone like this. i just want to know more.
i don't remember anything other than what i've shared. it's been many years, and my parents both died relatively young so there's no one to help me remember. i do know for sure that it was our neighbor and that he was profiled as a hitman. i may be assuming he was tied to the mob, but i can't remember. we moved there a few weeks after i was born in '67 and moved away after hurricane camille in '69, so there's a timeline tied to a place for him, just to the east of biloxi.

I don't know the answer to your post, but I'd be willing to do some "sleuthing" if you can remember what the address you lived in was back in the 60s (and do some guessing as to what the address would be for next door). No promises, of course, I only have the tools of the Net like everyone else here and may come up empty handed. I searched for "Venus" so far and nothing. You can PM if you'd like.
