My understanding is that aolsearch.com was transferred to AOL because of
two factors that acted together:  (a) Network Solutions is out of
control and (b) AOL is big and has clout and it wanted aolsearch.com.
All the descriptions I have read point to these factors.

Given that www.aolsearch.com was an active web site, inabilty to reach
the domain owner had to be an excuse, not a reason.  It's not that hard
to find a live human being, starting from a valid web site URL.
