Edward Nye is wanted by the New York State Police. I have no evidence as to whether he was profiled on AMW during the 1990s.
In 1981, Edward Nye had taken a job as a counselor at a school for young boys in Canaan, New York. Rumors of sexual abuse quickly surfaced and led to Nye's arrest in 1982. Nye pled guilty to sexual abuse charges in 1983, but was committed to a psychiatric center for suicidal tendencies. Four days after being committed, Nye disappeared from the center, and an Unlawful Flight to Avoid Confinement warrant was issued in 1989.
Thoughts? Even though he was committed due to suicidal tendencies, part of me wonders of that was a ruse to escape from law enforcement custody. He once had his own country-western band so he could have easily have fled to the Southern US and taken up work in the trades (also has worked as a maintenance worker, carpet installer and mechanic.)
