Decades Later, Authorities Hope To Identify John Wayne Gacy Victims

I’m posting this because John Gacy was a well-known, respected, and well-liked member of his community.  He was also responsible for some of the most heinous, degenerate, and evil crimes of the 20th century.

(CNN) — “More than three decades after the arrest of serial killer John Wayne Gacy, authorities in Chicago have launched a new effort to identify eight of his 33 victims.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office says new technology has allowed it to obtain DNA profiles for the eight victims, whose remains were recovered from Gacy’s house in late 1978 and early 1979 but were never identified.”

Gacy was convicted in 1980 of raping and killing 33 boys and young men he had lured into his home over a period of six years, promising them construction jobs, drugs and alcohol, or by posing as a police officer or offering money for sex.

Twenty-eight of the bodies were discovered under and around Gacy’s home, with most found in the 40-foot crawl space beneath the house and garage. Gacy said there were four others he had thrown into the Des Plaines River.

Gacy was put to death in 1994.”

“The public coming forward will allow us to do DNA matches that were not available 30 years ago,” Dart said Wednesday. “It’s not intrusive. It’s something that is very straightforward. We have hot lines, websites set up for people to contact us, and in short order, we can conduct any of the matches that need to be done.”

Those interested in giving a DNA sample can contact the Cook County Sheriff’s Office at 1-800-942-1950 or http://www.cookcountysheriff.com.

  1. Let’s hope that they will finally be able to place a name on those graves.
    Maybe a family can stop wondering and feeling that they might have somehow made their son go away.

      It is SO sad isn’t it? Those boys were so young and had their entire lives ahead of them. It’s more real when all of their photos are in one place. And that’s not even all of his victims.

    “They smile for the cameras but lead secret double lives.” Evil of this type is intentional and goal oriented. These killers spend hours and hours fine tuning their approach and entrapment skills so they won’t get caught. They systematically subdue and torture their victims and feel no compassion for them or their families.

    When I see the photos of these young male victims, I start to cry. A monster kidnapped them and sacrificed them to Satan. I am constantly aware that evil is alive and well in the world and our children are not safe anywhere.

      Like I said elsewhere in a comment, it’s more real when all of their photos are in one place, isn’t it? It makes me cry too.

      “A monster kidnapped them and sacrificed them to Satan. I am constantly aware that evil is alive and well in the world and our children are not safe anywhere.”

      Evil is more strong right now than ever before in the history of man.

    Ihope they can find out who those victums were,give some closure to families who dont no what happened to there loved ones

    I think all the serial killers came from a military mind control back round. 33 is a very significant number. 13 yo Jeffery Dahmer was given a day tour; he calls a pay phone, on his dime to Vice Pres Mondale, and he brought his whole class trip over there, on cue. There is an extremely well organized underground of satanists networks who know how exert influence at the highest levels, some whole towns and churches are involved. It truly is creepy if you think about it. I also think this is where methodical generational serial ritual abuse or pre-mind control comes into play. They smile for the cameras but lead secret double lives. Its the Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone
