In 1972 Willis moved to Miami and started working for the Miami Herald. In 1977 he became a supervisor in charge of the training program for the pressroom.
In 1981 Willis became involved in the Adam Walsh case after he had an encounter with one of America’s most notorious serial killers, Jeffrey Dahmer, in Radio Shack located in the Hollywood Mall, Hollywood Florida. The day was July 27, 1981. This was the same day that Adam Walsh was abducted.
After being brushed off by the Hollywood Police Department when he tried to tell them what happened. Willis spent the next three decades trying to find justice for Adam.
After the Hollywood Police Department closed the case on December 16, 2008 pinning Adam’s murder on a sycophantic serial confessor, Ottis Toole, Willis started tracking down other witnesses to find out where the police went wrong. It was also about that time Willis started writing his book Frustrated Witness! Willis wants the world to know it was not Ottis Toole that murdered Adam.
