LadyJustice met Addie Carone, a former social worker and matriarch of the Carone family at a Survivor’s of Homicide meeting. She had the honor of becoming involved in their lives in the most intimate ways, particularly as a volunteer court escort in Hartford, CT following the March 1987 homicide.
Adam Zach, a privileged kid with a “little Napolean-like demeanor” and affluent family, took offense to an off-handed remark about “spit shining the bar,” left the tavern and returned to shoot in the back, a fine young man, named Peter Carone.
AMW narrative accompanying his “mug shot” and initial reward read as follows:
On August 23, 1988, at the conclusion of a jury trial, Adam Mark Zachs was convicted of murder and sentenced to 60 years in prison. Pending appeal, this deadly killer was released on a bond. In June of 1989, Zachs failed to appear at a scheduled court hearing and a warrant for failure to appear was issued by a judge in the Superior Court of Connecticut on June 27, 1989. A federal arrest warrant charging Zachs with unlawful flight to avoid confinement was issued on July 24, 1989, in the United States District Court,Hartford, Connecticut. Therefore, a reward of up to $50,000 has been offered by the FBI for information leading directly to the capture of Adam Mark Zachs.
And then…. On Tuesday February 1st, 2011, Zachs, 47, was arrested in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico, Tuesday and is being held in Mexico City, police said. Zachs, who was living under an assumed name, had a wife and children in Mexico and worked in the computer repair business there.
The truth is, this wealthy family demonstrated the most egregious misconduct imaginable by conspiring with others to harbor their fugitive son for 22 years, sending him money, creating a new identity and the opportunity of family in Mexico.
At the opposite end of the spectrum is the Carone family, who lost their son-brother Peter, who did everything possible to seek justice on an international level and carried on with dignity and hope. Even now, Addie showed constraint and “an ounce of compassion” for Fredreck Zachs, as he was charged with harboring a fugitive.
