I was just telling HeadMarshal that Callahan Walsh has been doing some of the PSA's on the Justice Network, specifically ones on missing children.
Also, I noticed that John Walsh seems to still be appearing in CNN promo's when they do a rapid-fire montage of their anchors and such, saying "This....is CNN". Not sure if they still consider John part of *their* team (as The Hunt is now exclusively on sister station HLN), or if they're lazy or haven't noticed or what. I guess John probably still gets airtime on CNN whenever there's a big case that needs his input, but that doesn't seem to be too common nowadays now that the Orange Freak has become his own 24 hour news cycle and continues to suck up all the energy in the room.
1998 episode (not sure, but I think this episode immediately followed the one I did just previous, or pretty close
Markeith Braxton - Is wanted for his part in the murder of a Los Angeles pawn shop worker named Igor during a botched robbery attempt.
"Tie Robber" - Nickname given to bank robber who wears a necktie and dress shirt or suit during robberies. He has robbed many banks all across the U.S., but mainly Florida. He has not attempted to disguise his identity much and surveillance cameras have captured his image many times, but he remains unidentified.
Captured: Glen Horner - Criminal has been captured.
Daniel Fling - another airing
Public Enemy #1: Eddie Mathis - another airing, lasting three minutes.
Chris Trickle - Race car driver was shot while driving in Las Vegas, suspect and motive unknown. His car drifted off the road and crashed into a billboard. He survived for many months afterward, but eventually succumbed to his injuries. New witness has come forward with some potentially valuable information, but authorities are seeking other witnesses.
Selim "Jake" Kelmendi - Insane story about a guy who sexually harassed and physically assaulted numerous coworkers, even raping one and threatening the life (and that of her unborn child) of another. Also beat a store clerk for seemingly no reason. He was apprehended, but a stupid judge gave him "political refugee status" and was released.
Vincent Douglas - Quickie profile of man wanted for murdering his ex-girlfriend.
Tammy Meier & Chelsea Gragg - Mother and daughter went missing from Phoenix, AZ, last seen at a dentist's office. Vehicle later found abandoned 10 miles away. (Remains of both were discovered in the desert that October, suspect and motives unknown and the case is still unsolved, 20 years later).

I can tell you that last airing was sort of shoehorned in with the Officer Horner segment where it didn't belong. I think they were even trying to suggest Rudolph could have been a possible suspect in that case, but it's apparent he wasn't responsible. After awhile, I tend to zone out with all of the repeated segments.
LOL Scumhunter! I love that last line. I guess adding to the confusion is that there was recently a senator from Montana named John Walsh and there's also Joe Walsh of the Eagles.
Anyways, I have encountered an anti-John Walsh troll on numerous forums. He goes by different usernames: "Vahan" is one, and I think another was "Vinisian" or something like that. The first place I encountered him was on imdb, back when that place had message boards. He sent me a PM out of nowhere lambasting me for my support of John Walsh because John supports some gun control. I put him on "ignore".
I next encountered him on another forum where he doubled down on the John Walsh remarks, this time publicly, and also lambasted me for saying some nice things about Janice Dickinson (one of Cosby's accusers). It should be noted this troll is an *ardent* Cosby supporter, who said some utterly horrible things about his accusers (of which, at last count, I think there were at least 60). The thing is, the coward didn't even have the guts to say that to me on the subforum where I was widely respected, he waited until I posted in another subforum where the activity is low. I complained to the moderator and got his posts removed. I also blocked him from there, then found he was on another site and blocked him there as well.
I should mention I don't believe there is anyone that really believes Cosby is innocent, just people that don't want his "legacy" to be tarnished and they still want to enjoy reruns of the Cosby show, which was never that great to begin with. But the damage has been done, they can continue to live in a fantasy land if they want. The thing is, would *they* want to be in a room alone with Cosby one night? Probably not.
Update: Carl Consolvo - Second straight week this is the first fugitive to be profiled, he attempted to kidnap a boy since the last episode.
Officer Chris Horner - Orlando, FL police officer murdered around 6:35 a.m. while responding to his first call of the shift, which was at a cemetery. Some news outlets were pushing a possible suicide theory, but his death has been ruled a homicide. He left behind a wife and six children.
Eric Rudolph - Yet again!
Miami Beach Jane Doe - was killed in Miami, FL in 1993 by homeless bum Julio Ortiz, who set her on fire (possibly while still alive). His trial was due to start soon after the broadcast.
Alan Golder - Yet again!
Angel Rivera - Quickie profile of landlord wanted for murdering 3 tenants.
Mike McGuffey - Another 1993 case, McGuffey is wanted for murdering his ex-wife Shelley in Washington state.

I must say I don't particularly care for the 2pac or Notorious BIG cases. I know these guys, and many other rappers, are hero worshipped by a vast chunk of society, but also have lengthy criminal records themselves. I also know there's been some discussion that the Notorious BIG and/or people connected to him may have had a hand in 2pac's death and, Tupac's entourage had him killed in retaliation, but since I've never followed either case, I don't have an opinion one way or the other. Both of them engaged in fairly risky lifestyles and I think it caught up with them.
I wish I could believe there was a good chance the O'Brien boys are still alive, but given everything we know about Gary and the circumstances of the case, it doesn't look good.
Okay, the airdate isn't mentioned, but a commercial (most of them are cut out, but this one was intact) says the series premiere of Damon airs tomorrow. Damon premiered on March 22, 1998, so that would make this episode March 21, 1998. I'll update my previous posting to reflect this.
