From Unsolved Mysteries Wiki:
Real Name: Chaim Weiss
Nicknames: No Known Nicknames
Location: Long Beach, New York
Date: November 1, 1986
Details: In November 1986, a fifteen-year-old Jewish boy named Chaim Weiss was found murdered in his school dormitory in Long Beach, New York. The police are sure they could make an arrest in the case, but their investigation has been hindered because the religous convictions of the local Jewish community forbid them to speak out on the case unless they are absolutely 100% sure. His classmates were interrogated for hours, yet none claimed to have seen or heard anything. When Chaim was found, it appeared he had been moved twice after he was killed. Also, a window was opened in the yeshiva, and a candle that mysteriously appeared in the room, which were all related to Jewish customs, which led investigators to believe that the killer was someone that Chaim knew. Another lead authorities had was from a jogger who claimed to have seen a yeshiva student on a boardwalk on the day of Chaim's death. The student was never identified, but police believe he may have been involved in the case. Chaim's murder has never been solved.
Suspects: None known

Thoughts? Chaim's case has never aired on America's Most Wanted to the best of my knowledge but it is being placed in the Unsolved on TV section since, as noted above, it has aired on Unsolved Mysteries.
