I honestly think Edwards has been dead for a long-time. Through incredible police work, the IL State Police were able to find his biological mother and obtain her DNA profile (all they need is the profile of one parent). This was done in 2016, and the plan was to compare the DNA to inmates across the country for any matches. Nothing as of early 2018. I think the only time they'll get a DNA match at this point is if it's to an unidentified body. If he was going to use heroin constantly, he wasn't going to last very long.
I also think considering how much success AMW had catching fugitives in its' early days (they seemed to catch everyone before the advent of more cable channels and expansion of the internet), is another reason to think he's dead, as Edwards seems to have too many things and quirks about him to make him stand out for him to have not been a direct capture.
Also, entirely off-topic, but the "screw Lifetime" comments were made before I found out it was really Fox's license fees that was at fault for the show's ultimate cancellation.

I think there’s a 50/50 chance that he’s alive and dead. If he’s still alive he likely aged a ton that he looks completely unrecognizable and would look like someone who is 75 instead of his current age of 53.

Here's an interesting article on the case. I have always wondered since watching the AMW segment (or what there was to it) why would Edwards kill his adoptive parents since he had only been with them for three years and haven't contacted them for two years prior to the murders? Essentially what was his real motive? To be honest because of this I have suspicions that Joe may not be our guy and that Marcia may have mistaken the killer for Joe. Joe from the only pic we have of him was a common look in the late 70s and early 80s. But does give insight on possible motives. He was sent to rehab a couple of times but never stayed. Police also looked into a possible connection to him dabbling in satanism. Keep in mind as well that Edwards was also suicidal. So regardless if he's the guy or not, knowing about his fate is slim. On a aside here's on FBI poster on Edwards.
