After his son Adam Walsh was killed, America's Most Wanted host and founder of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children John Walsh started a crusade for justice, one that allegedly allowed him to steal his own grandkids. His daughter, and mother of the children, Meghan Walsh is asking for assistance from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Vero Beach, Florida- He's a hero, a role model, and celebrity, but is John Walsh a covert abuser too?
According to his daughter Meghan Walsh who has a very different perception of her father; one that she says has left her traumatized and scarred from childhood mental and physical abuse, yes, he is an abuser.
If that’s not enough, he's taken her home and last year he had her children removed from her care, based on allegations that were never proven to be true. Meghan has begged for assistance from the public, from organizations, and from Governor DeSantis of Florida.
Despite having almost 3,000 signatures on a Change.org petition titled, "A national outcry for Meghan Walsh, the daughter of NCMEC founders John and Reve Walsh," directed to Governor Desantis, he's has taken no action to help Meghan recover her children nor has he made a public statement regarding the petition or the request for his assistance.
Although it is unclear whether Meghan's children are safe in their current surroundings under the supervision of John and Reve Walsh, Meghan believes that her children aren't safe because of her personal experiences as a Walsh child.
Meghan recently had another child and according to her, John Walsh repeated his abuse tactics and had the newborn baby removed from her home by DCF workers and placed into foster care. Meghan believes that her father has done this in an attempt to silence her from revealing her personal story and the Walsh's family's history.
Attempts to reach John Walsh for a statement have been unsuccessful. Check back later for updates. For more details on Meghan Walsh's story, follow her on Twitter. You can support Meghan by signing the petition.
