To Catch a Killer (NL ondertiteld)

Less than four weeks later, year-old Kalamazoo teenager Robert Winch was murdered and buried in the crawl space, and on November 18, year-old father-of-one Tommy Boling disappeared after leaving a Chicago bar.

Three weeks after the murder of Tommy Boling, on December 9, a year-old U. Marine named David Talsma disappeared after informing his mother he was to attend a rock concert in Hammond.

On December 30, Gacy abducted year-old student Robert Donnelly from a Chicago bus stop at gunpoint. Gacy replied, "I'm getting round to it".

Donnelly reported the assault and Gacy was questioned by police on January 6, Gacy admitted to having had " slave-sex " with Donnelly, but insisted everything was consensual, adding that he "didn't pay the kid" the money he had promised him.

On March 21, Gacy lured year-old Jeffrey Rignall into his car. Upon entering the car, the young man was chloroformed and driven to the house on Summerdale, where his arms and head were restrained in a pillory device affixed to the ceiling.

He was later informed the chloroform had permanently damaged his liver. Rignall managed to stagger to his girlfriend's apartment.

Police were again informed of the assault but did not investigate Gacy. Rignall was able to recall, through the haze of that night, the Oldsmobile, the Kennedy Expressway and particular side streets.

He and two friends staked out the Cumberland exit of the Expressway when, in April, Rignall saw the Oldsmobile, which he and his friends followed to West Summerdale.

By , the crawl space could store no further bodies. The first known victim thrown from the I bridge into the Des Plaines River, year-old Timothy O'Rourke, was killed in mid-June after leaving his Dover Street apartment to purchase cigarettes.

Shortly before his disappearance, he had told his roommate that a contractor on the Northwest Side had offered him a job.

On November 4, Gacy killed year-old Frank Landingin. On the afternoon of December 11, , Gacy visited the Nisson Pharmacy in Des Plaines to discuss a potential remodeling deal with the store owner, Phil Torf.

Shortly after Gacy left the pharmacy, Piest's mother arrived at the store to drive her son home so the family could celebrate her forty-sixth birthday together.

In response, Gacy stated "good money" could be earned by hustling, although Piest was dismissive of this statement. When Piest failed to return, his family filed a missing person report on their son with the Des Plaines police.

Torf named Gacy as the contractor Piest had most likely left the store to talk with about a job. Kozenczak and two other Des Plaines police officers visited Gacy at his home the following evening.

Gacy indicated he had seen two youths working at the pharmacy and that he had asked one of them—whom he believed to be Piest—whether any remodeling materials were present in the rear of the store.

When questioned as to how soon he could come to the police station, he responded: "You guys are very rude. Don't you have any respect for the dead?

When asked why he had returned to the pharmacy, Gacy repeated his claim that he had done so in response to a phone call from Torf informing him he had left his appointment book at the store.

Detectives had already spoken with Torf, who had stated he had placed no such call to Gacy. Suspecting Gacy may be holding Piest against his will at his home, Des Plaines police obtained a warrant to search Gacy's house on December Investigators also found handcuffs, books on homosexuality and pederasty , seven pornographic films, capsules of amyl nitrite , [] and an inch dildo in Gacy's bedroom.

A blue hooded parka was found atop a tool box inside the laundry room, and underwear too small to fit Gacy was located inside a bathroom closet.

In the northwest bedroom, investigators found a Maine West High School ring, but the ring was not Piest's.

This ring was a class of ring engraved with the initials J. Gacy's Oldsmobile and other PDM work vehicles were confiscated by the Des Plaines police, who assigned two two-man surveillance teams to monitor Gacy on a rotational twelve-hour basis as they continued their investigation into his background and potential involvement in Piest's disappearance.

On December 15, Des Plaines investigators obtained further details upon Gacy's battery charge, learning the complainant, Jeffrey Rignall, had reported that Gacy had lured him into his car, then chloroformed, raped and tortured him before dumping him, with severe chest and facial burns and rectal bleeding, in Lincoln Park the following morning.

In an interview with Gacy's former wife the same day, they learned of the disappearance of John Butkovich. By December 16, Gacy was becoming affable with the surveillance detectives, regularly inviting them to join him for meals in restaurants and occasionally for drinks in bars or within his home.

He repeatedly denied that he had anything to do with Piest's disappearance and accused the officers of harassing him because of his political connections or because of his recreational drug use.

Knowing these officers were unlikely to arrest him on anything trivial, he openly taunted them by flouting traffic laws and succeeded in losing his pursuers on more than one occasion.

Cram also divulged that, on one occasion, due to his poor timekeeping, Gacy had given him a watch, explaining he had obtained the item "from a dead person".

On December 17, investigators conducted a formal interview of Michael Rossi, who informed them Gacy had sold Szyc's vehicle to him with the explanation that he had bought the car from Szyc because Szyc needed money to move to California.

A further examination of Gacy's Oldsmobile was conducted on this date. In the course of examining the trunk of the car, the investigators discovered a small cluster of fibers which may have been human hair.

These fibers were sent for further analysis. That evening, officers conducted a test using three trained German shepherd search dogs to determine whether Piest had been present in any of Gacy's vehicles.

That evening, Gacy invited the surveillance detectives Albrecht and Hachmeister to a restaurant for a meal. In the early hours of December 18, he invited them into another restaurant where, over breakfast, he talked of his business, his marriages and his activities as a registered clown.

By December 18, Gacy was beginning to show visible signs of strain as a result of the constant surveillance: he was unshaven, looked tired, appeared anxious and was drinking heavily.

I'll be right back. The same evening, Michael Rossi was interviewed a second time: on this occasion, Rossi was more cooperative, informing detectives that in the summer of , Gacy had had him spread ten bags of lime in the crawl space of the house.

On December 19, investigators began compiling evidence for a second search warrant of Gacy's house. The same day, Gacy's lawyers filed the civil suit against the Des Plaines police.

The hearing of the suit was scheduled for December That afternoon, Gacy again invited surveillance detectives inside his house.

On this occasion, as officer Robinson distracted Gacy with conversation, officer Schultz walked into Gacy's bedroom in an unsuccessful attempt to write down the serial number of the Motorola TV set they suspected belonged to John Szyc.

While flushing Gacy's toilet, this officer noticed a smell he suspected could be that of rotting corpses emanating from a heating duct ; the officers who previously searched Gacy's house had failed to notice this, as on that occasion the house had been cold.

Rossi had agreed to be interviewed in relation to his possible links with John Szyc as well as the disappearance of Robert Piest.

When questioned by Kozenczak as to where he believed Gacy had placed Piest's body, Rossi replied: "In the crawl space; he could have put him in the crawl space".

Cram informed investigators of Gacy's attempts to rape him in and stated that after he and Gacy had returned to his home after the December 13 search of his property, Gacy had turned pale upon noting a clot of mud on his carpet which he suspected had come from his crawl space.

Cram then stated Gacy had grabbed a flashlight and immediately entered the crawl space to look for evidence of digging. When asked whether he had been to the crawl space, Cram replied he had once been asked by Gacy to spread lime down there and had also dug trenches upon Gacy's behest with the explanation they were for drainage pipes.

On the evening of December 20, Gacy drove to his lawyers' office in Park Ridge to attend a scheduled meeting ostensibly to discuss the progress of his civil suit.

Upon his arrival Gacy appeared disheveled and immediately asked for an alcoholic drink whereupon Sam Amirante fetched a bottle of whiskey from his car.

Upon his return Amirante asked Gacy what he had to discuss with them. Gacy picked up a copy of the Daily Herald from Amirante's desk, pointed to a front-page article covering the disappearance of Robert Piest and said, "This boy is dead.

He's in a river". Over the following hours Gacy gave a rambling confession that ran into the early hours of the following morning.

He began by informing Amirante and Stevens he had "been the judge Gacy dismissed his victims as " male prostitutes ", "hustlers" and "liars" to whom he gave "the rope trick", adding that he occasionally awoke to find "dead, strangled kids" on his floor, with their hands cuffed behind their back.

Upon awakening several hours later, Gacy simply shook his head when informed by Amirante he had earlier confessed to killing approximately 30 people, stating: "Well, I can't think about this right now.

I've got things to do". Ignoring his lawyers' advice regarding his scheduled appointment, Gacy left their office to attend to the needs of his business.

Gacy later recollected his memories of his final day of freedom as being "hazy", adding that he knew his arrest was inevitable and that, in his final hours of freedom, he intended to visit his friends and say his final farewells.

Jacobson immediately handed the bag to the surveillance officers, adding that Gacy had told him: "The end is coming for me. These guys are going to kill me".

Gacy then drove to the home of a fellow contractor, Ronald Rhode. Inside Rhode's living room, Gacy hugged Rhode before bursting into tears and saying: "I've been a bad boy.

I killed thirty people, give or take a few". As he drove along the expressway, the surveillance officers noted he was holding a rosary to his chin as he prayed while driving.

As Gacy spoke with his lawyer, Cram informed the officers that Gacy had divulged to him and Rossi that the previous evening, he had confessed to his lawyers his guilt in over thirty murders.

Gacy then had Cram drive him to Maryhill Cemetery, where his father was buried. As Gacy drove to various locations that morning, police outlined their formal draft of their second search warrant.

The purpose of the warrant was specifically to search for the body of Robert Piest in the crawl space. Upon hearing from the surveillance detectives that, in light of his erratic behavior, Gacy may be about to commit suicide, police decided to arrest him upon a charge of possession and distribution of marijuana [] in order to hold him in custody as the formal request for a second search warrant was presented.

Armed with the signed search warrant, police and evidence technicians drove to Gacy's home. Upon their arrival, officers found that Gacy had unplugged his sump pump and that the crawl space was flooded with water; to clear the water they simply replaced the plug and waited for the water to drain.

After it had done so, evidence technician Daniel Genty entered the byfoot 8. Genty immediately shouted to the investigators that they could charge Gacy with murder.

The victim was too decomposed to be Piest, and as the body was later unearthed, a crime scene technician discovered the skull of a second victim alongside this body.

Later excavations of the feet of this second victim revealed a further skull beneath the body. After being informed that the police had found human remains in his crawl space and that he would now face murder charges, Gacy told officers he wanted to "clear the air", adding that he had known his arrest was inevitable since the previous evening, which he had spent on the couch in his lawyers' office.

In the early morning hours of 22 December and in the presence of his lawyers, Gacy provided a formal statement, in which he confessed to murdering approximately 30 young males—all of whom he claimed had entered his house willingly.

When shown a driver's license issued to a Robert Hasten which had been found on his property, Gacy claimed not to know this individual, but admitted this license had been in the possession of one of his victims.

When specifically questioned about Piest, Gacy confessed to strangling him at his house on the evening of December 11 after luring him there.

He also admitted to having slept alongside Piest's body that evening, before disposing of the corpse in the Des Plaines River in the early hours of December In this accident, his vehicle had slid off an ice-covered road, and he had unsuccessfully attempted to free the vehicle himself before the vehicle had to be towed from its location.

Accompanied by police and his lawyers, Gacy was subsequently driven to the spot on the I bridge from which he had confessed to have thrown the bodies of Piest, Landingin, and three other victims that summer [] into the Des Plaines River.

During his confession, to assist officers in their search for the victims buried beneath his house, Gacy drew a rough diagram of his basement upon a phone message sheet to indicate where their bodies were buried.

Cook County medical examiner Robert Stein supervised the exhumations. All the victims discovered at Summerdale were in an advanced state of decomposition, and Stein chiefly relied upon dental records and X-ray charts to facilitate the identification of the remains.

Several bodies unearthed at Gacy's property were found with plastic bags over their heads or upper torsos.

In some cases, bodies were found with foreign objects such as prescription bottles lodged into their pelvic region, the position of which indicated the items had been thrust into the victims' anus.

The crawl space was marked in sections and each body was given an identifying number. The first body recovered from the crawl space was assigned a marker denoting the victim as Body 1.

The body of John Butkovich was labelled as Body 2. The search for victims was temporarily postponed over Christmas.

Four more bodies were unearthed on December On December 27, eight more bodies were discovered.

The upper torso of both victims was concealed in a plastic bag. This victim was found with a cloth rag lodged deep in his throat, causing this victim to die of suffocation.

The seventeenth victim was found with a ligature around his neck. The following day, four more bodies were exhumed.

By December 29, six more bodies were unearthed. Bodies 22, 23, 24, and 26 were buried in a common grave located beneath Gacy's kitchen and laundry room, [] with Body 25 located beneath Gacy's bathroom.

Two socks were recovered from the pelvic region. Bodies 23, 24 and 26 were buried beneath the laundry room.

The bones of victims 23 and 24 were commingled together, and a section of cloth was found inside the mouth of Bodies 24 and Operations were suspended due to the Chicago Blizzard of , but resumed in March despite Gacy's insistence that all the buried victims had been found.

Stein concluded 12 victims recovered from Gacy's property died not of strangulation, but of asphyxiation.

An autopsy was unable to discount strangulation as the cause of death. The cause of death of Frank Landingin assigned victim number 32 was certified at autopsy as suffocation through his own underwear being lodged down his throat, plugging his airway and effectively causing him to drown in his own vomit.

On December 28, one further body linked to Gacy was found one mile from the I bridge. This victim was identified as James Mazzara, whom Gacy confessed to having murdered shortly after Thanksgiving.

On April 9, , a decomposed body was discovered entangled in exposed roots on the edge of the Des Plaines River in Grundy County. A subsequent autopsy revealed that three wads of "paper-like material" had been shoved down his throat while he was still alive, causing him to die of suffocation.

Gacy was brought to trial on February 6, , charged with 33 murders. At the request of his defense counsel, Gacy spent over three hundred hours in the year before his trial with the doctors at the Menard Correctional Center.

He underwent a variety of psychological tests before a panel of psychiatrists to determine whether he was mentally competent to stand trial.

Gacy had attempted to convince the doctors that he suffered from a multiple personality disorder. When Gacy had confessed to police, he claimed to be relaying the crimes of Jack, who detested homosexuality.

Presenting Gacy as a Jekyll and Hyde character, [] the defense produced several psychiatric experts who had examined Gacy the previous year to testify to their findings.

The prosecutors presented a case that indicated Gacy was sane and fully in control of his actions. Those doctors refuted the defense doctors' claims of multiple personality and insanity.

Cram and Rossi both confessed that Gacy had made them dig trenches and spread bags of lime in his crawl space.

Both testified that Gacy periodically looked into the crawl space to ensure they and other employees ordered to dig these trenches did not deviate from the precise locations he had marked.

Immediately after Cram had completed his testimony, Rossi testified for the state. When asked where he had dug in the crawl space, Rossi turned to a diagram of Gacy's home on display in the courtroom.

This diagram showed where the bodies were found in the crawl space and elsewhere on the property.

Rossi pointed to the location of the remains of an unidentified victim known as "Body 13". On February 18 Robert Stein testified that all the bodies recovered from Gacy's property were "markedly decomposed [and] putrefied, skeletalized remains", [] and that of all the autopsies he performed, thirteen victims had died of asphyxiation, six of ligature strangulation, one of multiple stab wounds to the chest, and ten in undetermined ways.

Jeffrey Rignall testified on behalf of the defense on February Asked whether Gacy appreciated the criminality of his actions, Rignall said he believed that Gacy was unable to conform his actions to the law's expectations because of the "beastly and animalistic ways he attacked me".

On February 29, Donald Voorhees, whom Gacy had sexually assaulted in , testified to his ordeal at Gacy's hands and Gacy's attempts to dissuade him from testifying by paying another youth to spray Mace in his face and beat him.

Robert Donnelly testified the week after Voorhees, recounting his ordeal at Gacy's hands in December Donnelly was visibly distressed as he recollected the abuse he endured and came close to breaking down on several occasions.

As Donnelly testified, Gacy repeatedly laughed at him, [] but Donnelly finished his testimony. During Donnelly's cross-examination, one of Gacy's defense attorneys, Robert Motta, attempted to discredit his testimony, but Donnelly did not waver from his testimony of what had occurred.

During the fifth week of the trial, Gacy wrote a personal letter to Judge Garippo requesting a mistrial [] on a number of bases, including that he did not approve of his lawyers' insanity plea strategy; that his lawyers had not allowed him to take the witness stand as he had desired to do ; that his defense had not called enough medical witnesses, and that the police were lying with regard to verbal statements he had purportedly made to detectives after his arrest and that, in any event, the statements were "self-serving" for use by the prosecution.

On March 11, final arguments from both prosecution and defense attorneys began, with the arguments concluding on the following day.

Prosecuting attorney Terry Sullivan argued first, outlining Gacy's history of abusing youths, the testimony of his efforts to avoid detection and describing Gacy's surviving victims—Voorhees and Donnelly—as "living dead".

I tremble when thinking about just how close he came to getting away with it all". After the state's four-hour closing, counsel Sam Amirante argued for the defense.

Amirante argued against the testimony delivered by the doctors who had testified for the prosecution, repeatedly citing the testimony of the four psychiatrists and psychologists who had testified on behalf of the defense.

The defense lawyer attempted to portray Gacy as a "man driven by compulsions he was unable to control", contending the State had not met their burden of proving Gacy sane beyond a reasonable doubt.

In support of these arguments, the defense counsel repeatedly referred to the testimony of the doctors who had appeared for the defense, in addition to the testimony of defense witnesses such as Jeffrey Rignall and Gacy's former business associate Mickel Ried—both of whom had testified to their belief that Gacy had been unable to control his actions.

On the morning of March 12, [] William Kunkle continued to argue for the prosecution. Kunkle referred to the defense's contention of insanity as "a sham ", arguing that the facts of the case demonstrated Gacy's ability to think logically and control his actions.

Kunkle also referred to the testimony of a doctor who had examined Gacy in This doctor had diagnosed Gacy as an antisocial personality , capable of committing crimes without remorse.

Kunkle indicated that had the recommendations of this doctor been heeded, Gacy would have not been freed. At the close of his argument, Kunkle pulled each of the 22 photos of Gacy's identified victims off a board displaying the images and asked the jury not to show sympathy but to "show justice".

Kunkle then asked the jury to "show the same sympathy this man showed when he took these lives and put them there! After Kunkle had finished his testimony, the jury retired to consider their verdict.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours [] and found Gacy guilty of the thirty-three charges of murder for which he had been brought to trial; he was also found guilty of sexual assault and taking indecent liberties with a child; both convictions in reference to Robert Piest.

In the sentencing phase of the trial, the jury deliberated for more than two hours before sentencing Gacy to death for each murder committed after the Illinois statute on capital punishment came into effect in June Upon being sentenced, Gacy was transferred to the Menard Correctional Center in Chester, Illinois , where he remained incarcerated on death row for 14 years.

On February 15, , Gacy was stabbed in the arm by Henry Brisbon, a fellow death row inmate known as the I killer. At the time of this attack, Gacy had been participating in a voluntary work program when Brisbon ran towards him and stabbed him once in the upper arm with a sharpened wire.

A second death row inmate injured in the attack, William Jones, received a superficial stab wound to the head.

Both received treatment in the prison hospital for their wounds. After his incarceration, Gacy read numerous law books and filed voluminous motions and appeals, although he did not prevail in any.

Gacy's appeals related to issues such as the validity of the first search warrant granted to Des Plaines police on December 13, , and his objection to his lawyers' insanity plea defense at his trial.

In mid, the Supreme Court of Illinois upheld Gacy's conviction and ordered that he be executed by lethal injection on November The following year, Gacy filed a further post-conviction petition, seeking a new trial.

His then-defense lawyer, Richard Kling , argued that Gacy had been provided with ineffective legal counsel at his trial.

This post-conviction petition was dismissed on September 11, The decision that he be executed was again appealed by Gacy, although his conviction was again upheld on September 29, , with the Illinois Supreme Court setting a renewed execution date of January 11, After Gacy's final appeal to the U.

That afternoon, he was allowed a private picnic on the prison grounds with his family. For his last meal , Gacy ordered a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, a dozen fried shrimp , french fries, fresh strawberries, and a Diet Coke.

Before the execution began, the chemicals used to perform the execution unexpectedly solidified, clogging the IV tube administering the chemicals into Gacy's arm and complicating the execution procedure.

Blinds covering the window through which witnesses observed the execution were drawn, and the execution team replaced the clogged tube to complete the procedure.

After ten minutes, the blinds were reopened and the execution resumed. The entire procedure took 18 minutes. This error apparently led to Illinois' subsequent adoption of an alternative method of lethal injection.

On this subject, one of the prosecutors at Gacy's trial, William Kunkle, said: "He got a much easier death than any of his victims". According to published reports, Gacy was a diagnosed psychopath who did not express any remorse for his crimes.

In the hours leading up to Gacy's execution, a crowd estimated to number over 1, gathered outside the correctional center; the majority of whom were vocally in favor of the execution, although a number of anti-death penalty protesters were also present.

It is in the possession of Helen Morrison , a witness for the defense at Gacy's trial, [] who has interviewed Gacy and other serial killers in an attempt to isolate common personality traits of violent sociopaths.

His body was cremated after the execution. In the months following Gacy's execution, many of his paintings were auctioned. Some were bought so that they could be destroyed in a June communal bonfire held in Naperville, Illinois and attended by approximately people, including family members of nine of Gacy's victims.

Only 27 of Gacy's victims were ever conclusively identified. Of Gacy's identified victims, the youngest were Samuel Stapleton and Michael Marino, both 14; the oldest was Russell Nelson, who was Six victims have never been identified.

Their identities were confirmed via dental records on December 29, The thirty-third victim linked to Gacy, James Mazzara, was identified the following day.

Four further victims were identified on January 6: Body 18 was identified as Michael Bonnin; Body 25 was identified as Robert Gilroy; the first victim exhumed from the crawl space was identified as Jon Prestidge; and the victim labelled Body 16 was identified as Russell Nelson.

A fishing license issued to Bonnin had previously been found in Gacy's home. On January 27, dental charts were used to identify Body 20 as John Mowery.

Two days later, Body 8 was identified as Matthew Bowman. Two months later, on March 27, the twenty-second victim recovered from Gacy's property was identified via dental records as William Carroll.

Winch was identified via distinctive healed bone fractures. A distinctive brown "tiger's eye" metal buckle with black stripings belonging to Winch had previously been found in Gacy's home.

The sixth victim exhumed from Gacy's property was identified via dental records as Samuel Stapleton on November 14, In March , Bodies 14 and 15 were identified via dental and radiology records as those Michael Marino and Kenneth Parker.

Their identities were confirmed too late to include among the identified victims at Gacy's trial. In October , Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart announced that investigators, having obtained full DNA profiles from each of the unidentified victims, were to renew their efforts to identify all of them.

At a press conference held to announce this intention, Sheriff Dart stated investigators are actively seeking DNA samples from individuals across the United States related to any male missing between and Test results thus far conducted have confirmed the identification of two victims, ruled out the possibility of numerous other missing youths as being victims of Gacy, [] [] and solved four unrelated cold cases dating between and However, the records had been destroyed after the dentist had retired.

He was the twenty-fourth victim exhumed from beneath Gacy's property. Six victims remain unidentified, five of whom had been buried beneath Gacy's crawl space, with one additional youth buried approximately 15 feet 4.

Based upon Gacy's confession, information relative to where the victims were buried in his crawl space relative to Gacy's identified victims, and forensic analysis, police were able to determine the most likely dates when his unidentified victims were killed.

This victim was buried near Gacy's barbecue pit, possibly in This man had two missing upper front teeth at the time of his disappearance, leading investigators to believe this particular victim most likely wore a denture.

This victim was almost certainly murdered between June 13 and August 5, Body 13 was a man likely to have been murdered between August and October He had long, dark brown, wavy hair and was between 18 and 22 years old.

He had light brown hair. As David Cram did not live with Gacy until August 21, , a possible date for this murder is between August 6 and 20, , although investigators have not discounted the possibility this victim may have been murdered later in The two victims murdered on the same day in May were buried alongside this victim, yet sequential burial patterns of three victims murdered in leave an equal possibility he may have been murdered in the spring or summer of Statements made by Gacy following his arrest leave a possibility this unidentified victim may have been murdered as early as Gacy's unidentified victims and likely date of murder given chronologically, including body numbers and place of burial, is as follows:.

At the time of Gacy's arrest, he had claimed to both Des Plaines and Chicago investigators that the total number of victims he had killed could be as high as Investigators did excavate the grounds of his property until they had exposed the substratum of clay beneath the foundations, yet only 29 bodies were found buried upon his property.

Gacy stated that after he had assaulted and then released Jeffrey Rignall in March , he had begun to throw his murder victims into the Des Plaines River.

He confessed to having disposed of five bodies in this manner. However, only four bodies recovered from the Des Plaines River were linked to Gacy.

Disputed DNA and dental tests conducted between and indicates that neither body found in the common grave in Gacy's crawl space and identified as those of Kenneth Parker and Michael Marino in was actually Marino.

In addition, the dental X-ray conducted upon the victim identified as Michael Marino had revealed the victim had all of his second molars , whereas a dental X-ray conducted upon Marino in March revealed one molar had not erupted.

Moreover, Rossi had stated that Hattula was known to have conflicts with Gacy, and when Hattula had "failed to show up at work", Gacy had informed him and several other employees Hattula had drowned.

Des Plaines authorities had contacted colleagues in Freeport during their investigation into Gacy, but were told Hattula had fallen to his death from a bridge.

However, Hattula's death has been officially ruled as asphyxia by drowning. Retired Chicago police officer Bill Dorsch has stated he has reason to believe there may be more victims buried within the grounds of the apartment building located at the block of West Miami Avenue in Chicago; a property which Gacy is known to have been the caretaker of for several years prior to his arrest.

When confronted by Dorsch as to his actions, Gacy stated he was performing work that he was too busy to do during the day.

Dorsch has also related that several other residents of West Miami Avenue have stated that, in the early- to mids, they had observed Gacy digging trenches in the grounds of the property; [] one of these residents has also stated that Gacy later placed plants in the elongated trenches he had dug.

While working at a Seattle clinic for women in the s, aspiring crime writer, Ann Rule, unwittingly becomes friends with serial killer Ted Bundy.

The true chilling story of the "two of a kind", killin' cousins Angelo Buono and Kenneth Bianchi, better known as the Hillside Stranglers, is told in this TV drama.

The movie concentrates Wisconsin, John Gacy, Sr. Iowa, The adult John Wayne Gacy Jr. From , John Wayne Gacy, Jr.

Alas, while he loudly abhors homosexuality, the monster uses the crawl space under his home for the vice of his abusive father: over 30 innocent boys and teenagers end up buried there, after horrible abuse ending in torturous death, causing it to reek unspeakably, being full of insects decomposing the stream of young corpses.

Some victims worked for him, others he just picked up 'for fun' or lured in under various pretenses. Written by KGF Vissers.

I'd like to know what the purpose was behind the making of this film. The Gacy story would have been served better by a more documentary approach, instead of this weak "grand guignol" version which spends more time focusing on maggots and bad smells than on Gacy and his background.

Are we to believe that he's a psychopath because his dad whacked him around on a fishing trip and maybe elsewhere? Why did he kill the first boy?

When did he lose control over his anger and perversion? He's just a hair-trigger, vulgar and angry guy through the entire film. This story took place in Des Plaines, IL, my wife's home town.

In fact, Gacy's last "pickup" was at a store just a few blocks from her house. In the movie, Gacy's house and neighborhood look nothing like Chicago.

The trees are wrong, the sky is wrong, the other buildings are wrong. They didn't even get the colors quite right on the Chicago police cars.

Worst of all Hollywood morons need to get out a little more! There is life beyond L. At least they confessed to it in the closing credits.

Gacy (2003) - Official Trailer john wayne gacy film

The same evening, Michael Rossi was interviewed a second time: on this occasion, Rossi was more cooperative, informing detectives that in the summer of , Gacy had had him spread ten bags of lime in the crawl space of the house.

On December 19, investigators began compiling evidence for a second search warrant of Gacy's house. The same day, Gacy's lawyers filed the civil suit against the Des Plaines police.

The hearing of the suit was scheduled for December That afternoon, Gacy again invited surveillance detectives inside his house.

On this occasion, as officer Robinson distracted Gacy with conversation, officer Schultz walked into Gacy's bedroom in an unsuccessful attempt to write down the serial number of the Motorola TV set they suspected belonged to John Szyc.

While flushing Gacy's toilet, this officer noticed a smell he suspected could be that of rotting corpses emanating from a heating duct ; the officers who previously searched Gacy's house had failed to notice this, as on that occasion the house had been cold.

Rossi had agreed to be interviewed in relation to his possible links with John Szyc as well as the disappearance of Robert Piest. When questioned by Kozenczak as to where he believed Gacy had placed Piest's body, Rossi replied: "In the crawl space; he could have put him in the crawl space".

Cram informed investigators of Gacy's attempts to rape him in and stated that after he and Gacy had returned to his home after the December 13 search of his property, Gacy had turned pale upon noting a clot of mud on his carpet which he suspected had come from his crawl space.

Cram then stated Gacy had grabbed a flashlight and immediately entered the crawl space to look for evidence of digging.

When asked whether he had been to the crawl space, Cram replied he had once been asked by Gacy to spread lime down there and had also dug trenches upon Gacy's behest with the explanation they were for drainage pipes.

On the evening of December 20, Gacy drove to his lawyers' office in Park Ridge to attend a scheduled meeting ostensibly to discuss the progress of his civil suit.

Upon his arrival Gacy appeared disheveled and immediately asked for an alcoholic drink whereupon Sam Amirante fetched a bottle of whiskey from his car.

Upon his return Amirante asked Gacy what he had to discuss with them. Gacy picked up a copy of the Daily Herald from Amirante's desk, pointed to a front-page article covering the disappearance of Robert Piest and said, "This boy is dead.

He's in a river". Over the following hours Gacy gave a rambling confession that ran into the early hours of the following morning.

He began by informing Amirante and Stevens he had "been the judge Gacy dismissed his victims as " male prostitutes ", "hustlers" and "liars" to whom he gave "the rope trick", adding that he occasionally awoke to find "dead, strangled kids" on his floor, with their hands cuffed behind their back.

Upon awakening several hours later, Gacy simply shook his head when informed by Amirante he had earlier confessed to killing approximately 30 people, stating: "Well, I can't think about this right now.

I've got things to do". Ignoring his lawyers' advice regarding his scheduled appointment, Gacy left their office to attend to the needs of his business.

Gacy later recollected his memories of his final day of freedom as being "hazy", adding that he knew his arrest was inevitable and that, in his final hours of freedom, he intended to visit his friends and say his final farewells.

Jacobson immediately handed the bag to the surveillance officers, adding that Gacy had told him: "The end is coming for me. These guys are going to kill me".

Gacy then drove to the home of a fellow contractor, Ronald Rhode. Inside Rhode's living room, Gacy hugged Rhode before bursting into tears and saying: "I've been a bad boy.

I killed thirty people, give or take a few". As he drove along the expressway, the surveillance officers noted he was holding a rosary to his chin as he prayed while driving.

As Gacy spoke with his lawyer, Cram informed the officers that Gacy had divulged to him and Rossi that the previous evening, he had confessed to his lawyers his guilt in over thirty murders.

Gacy then had Cram drive him to Maryhill Cemetery, where his father was buried. As Gacy drove to various locations that morning, police outlined their formal draft of their second search warrant.

The purpose of the warrant was specifically to search for the body of Robert Piest in the crawl space. Upon hearing from the surveillance detectives that, in light of his erratic behavior, Gacy may be about to commit suicide, police decided to arrest him upon a charge of possession and distribution of marijuana [] in order to hold him in custody as the formal request for a second search warrant was presented.

Armed with the signed search warrant, police and evidence technicians drove to Gacy's home. Upon their arrival, officers found that Gacy had unplugged his sump pump and that the crawl space was flooded with water; to clear the water they simply replaced the plug and waited for the water to drain.

After it had done so, evidence technician Daniel Genty entered the byfoot 8. Genty immediately shouted to the investigators that they could charge Gacy with murder.

The victim was too decomposed to be Piest, and as the body was later unearthed, a crime scene technician discovered the skull of a second victim alongside this body.

Later excavations of the feet of this second victim revealed a further skull beneath the body. After being informed that the police had found human remains in his crawl space and that he would now face murder charges, Gacy told officers he wanted to "clear the air", adding that he had known his arrest was inevitable since the previous evening, which he had spent on the couch in his lawyers' office.

In the early morning hours of 22 December and in the presence of his lawyers, Gacy provided a formal statement, in which he confessed to murdering approximately 30 young males—all of whom he claimed had entered his house willingly.

When shown a driver's license issued to a Robert Hasten which had been found on his property, Gacy claimed not to know this individual, but admitted this license had been in the possession of one of his victims.

When specifically questioned about Piest, Gacy confessed to strangling him at his house on the evening of December 11 after luring him there.

He also admitted to having slept alongside Piest's body that evening, before disposing of the corpse in the Des Plaines River in the early hours of December In this accident, his vehicle had slid off an ice-covered road, and he had unsuccessfully attempted to free the vehicle himself before the vehicle had to be towed from its location.

Accompanied by police and his lawyers, Gacy was subsequently driven to the spot on the I bridge from which he had confessed to have thrown the bodies of Piest, Landingin, and three other victims that summer [] into the Des Plaines River.

During his confession, to assist officers in their search for the victims buried beneath his house, Gacy drew a rough diagram of his basement upon a phone message sheet to indicate where their bodies were buried.

Cook County medical examiner Robert Stein supervised the exhumations. All the victims discovered at Summerdale were in an advanced state of decomposition, and Stein chiefly relied upon dental records and X-ray charts to facilitate the identification of the remains.

Several bodies unearthed at Gacy's property were found with plastic bags over their heads or upper torsos. In some cases, bodies were found with foreign objects such as prescription bottles lodged into their pelvic region, the position of which indicated the items had been thrust into the victims' anus.

The crawl space was marked in sections and each body was given an identifying number. The first body recovered from the crawl space was assigned a marker denoting the victim as Body 1.

The body of John Butkovich was labelled as Body 2. The search for victims was temporarily postponed over Christmas. Four more bodies were unearthed on December On December 27, eight more bodies were discovered.

The upper torso of both victims was concealed in a plastic bag. This victim was found with a cloth rag lodged deep in his throat, causing this victim to die of suffocation.

The seventeenth victim was found with a ligature around his neck. The following day, four more bodies were exhumed. By December 29, six more bodies were unearthed.

Bodies 22, 23, 24, and 26 were buried in a common grave located beneath Gacy's kitchen and laundry room, [] with Body 25 located beneath Gacy's bathroom.

Two socks were recovered from the pelvic region. Bodies 23, 24 and 26 were buried beneath the laundry room. The bones of victims 23 and 24 were commingled together, and a section of cloth was found inside the mouth of Bodies 24 and Operations were suspended due to the Chicago Blizzard of , but resumed in March despite Gacy's insistence that all the buried victims had been found.

Stein concluded 12 victims recovered from Gacy's property died not of strangulation, but of asphyxiation.

An autopsy was unable to discount strangulation as the cause of death. The cause of death of Frank Landingin assigned victim number 32 was certified at autopsy as suffocation through his own underwear being lodged down his throat, plugging his airway and effectively causing him to drown in his own vomit.

On December 28, one further body linked to Gacy was found one mile from the I bridge. This victim was identified as James Mazzara, whom Gacy confessed to having murdered shortly after Thanksgiving.

On April 9, , a decomposed body was discovered entangled in exposed roots on the edge of the Des Plaines River in Grundy County.

A subsequent autopsy revealed that three wads of "paper-like material" had been shoved down his throat while he was still alive, causing him to die of suffocation.

Gacy was brought to trial on February 6, , charged with 33 murders. At the request of his defense counsel, Gacy spent over three hundred hours in the year before his trial with the doctors at the Menard Correctional Center.

He underwent a variety of psychological tests before a panel of psychiatrists to determine whether he was mentally competent to stand trial.

Gacy had attempted to convince the doctors that he suffered from a multiple personality disorder. When Gacy had confessed to police, he claimed to be relaying the crimes of Jack, who detested homosexuality.

Presenting Gacy as a Jekyll and Hyde character, [] the defense produced several psychiatric experts who had examined Gacy the previous year to testify to their findings.

The prosecutors presented a case that indicated Gacy was sane and fully in control of his actions. Those doctors refuted the defense doctors' claims of multiple personality and insanity.

Cram and Rossi both confessed that Gacy had made them dig trenches and spread bags of lime in his crawl space.

Both testified that Gacy periodically looked into the crawl space to ensure they and other employees ordered to dig these trenches did not deviate from the precise locations he had marked.

Immediately after Cram had completed his testimony, Rossi testified for the state. When asked where he had dug in the crawl space, Rossi turned to a diagram of Gacy's home on display in the courtroom.

This diagram showed where the bodies were found in the crawl space and elsewhere on the property. Rossi pointed to the location of the remains of an unidentified victim known as "Body 13".

On February 18 Robert Stein testified that all the bodies recovered from Gacy's property were "markedly decomposed [and] putrefied, skeletalized remains", [] and that of all the autopsies he performed, thirteen victims had died of asphyxiation, six of ligature strangulation, one of multiple stab wounds to the chest, and ten in undetermined ways.

Jeffrey Rignall testified on behalf of the defense on February Asked whether Gacy appreciated the criminality of his actions, Rignall said he believed that Gacy was unable to conform his actions to the law's expectations because of the "beastly and animalistic ways he attacked me".

On February 29, Donald Voorhees, whom Gacy had sexually assaulted in , testified to his ordeal at Gacy's hands and Gacy's attempts to dissuade him from testifying by paying another youth to spray Mace in his face and beat him.

Robert Donnelly testified the week after Voorhees, recounting his ordeal at Gacy's hands in December Donnelly was visibly distressed as he recollected the abuse he endured and came close to breaking down on several occasions.

As Donnelly testified, Gacy repeatedly laughed at him, [] but Donnelly finished his testimony. During Donnelly's cross-examination, one of Gacy's defense attorneys, Robert Motta, attempted to discredit his testimony, but Donnelly did not waver from his testimony of what had occurred.

During the fifth week of the trial, Gacy wrote a personal letter to Judge Garippo requesting a mistrial [] on a number of bases, including that he did not approve of his lawyers' insanity plea strategy; that his lawyers had not allowed him to take the witness stand as he had desired to do ; that his defense had not called enough medical witnesses, and that the police were lying with regard to verbal statements he had purportedly made to detectives after his arrest and that, in any event, the statements were "self-serving" for use by the prosecution.

On March 11, final arguments from both prosecution and defense attorneys began, with the arguments concluding on the following day.

Prosecuting attorney Terry Sullivan argued first, outlining Gacy's history of abusing youths, the testimony of his efforts to avoid detection and describing Gacy's surviving victims—Voorhees and Donnelly—as "living dead".

I tremble when thinking about just how close he came to getting away with it all". After the state's four-hour closing, counsel Sam Amirante argued for the defense.

Amirante argued against the testimony delivered by the doctors who had testified for the prosecution, repeatedly citing the testimony of the four psychiatrists and psychologists who had testified on behalf of the defense.

The defense lawyer attempted to portray Gacy as a "man driven by compulsions he was unable to control", contending the State had not met their burden of proving Gacy sane beyond a reasonable doubt.

In support of these arguments, the defense counsel repeatedly referred to the testimony of the doctors who had appeared for the defense, in addition to the testimony of defense witnesses such as Jeffrey Rignall and Gacy's former business associate Mickel Ried—both of whom had testified to their belief that Gacy had been unable to control his actions.

On the morning of March 12, [] William Kunkle continued to argue for the prosecution. Kunkle referred to the defense's contention of insanity as "a sham ", arguing that the facts of the case demonstrated Gacy's ability to think logically and control his actions.

Kunkle also referred to the testimony of a doctor who had examined Gacy in This doctor had diagnosed Gacy as an antisocial personality , capable of committing crimes without remorse.

Kunkle indicated that had the recommendations of this doctor been heeded, Gacy would have not been freed. At the close of his argument, Kunkle pulled each of the 22 photos of Gacy's identified victims off a board displaying the images and asked the jury not to show sympathy but to "show justice".

Kunkle then asked the jury to "show the same sympathy this man showed when he took these lives and put them there! After Kunkle had finished his testimony, the jury retired to consider their verdict.

The jury deliberated for less than two hours [] and found Gacy guilty of the thirty-three charges of murder for which he had been brought to trial; he was also found guilty of sexual assault and taking indecent liberties with a child; both convictions in reference to Robert Piest.

In the sentencing phase of the trial, the jury deliberated for more than two hours before sentencing Gacy to death for each murder committed after the Illinois statute on capital punishment came into effect in June Upon being sentenced, Gacy was transferred to the Menard Correctional Center in Chester, Illinois , where he remained incarcerated on death row for 14 years.

On February 15, , Gacy was stabbed in the arm by Henry Brisbon, a fellow death row inmate known as the I killer.

At the time of this attack, Gacy had been participating in a voluntary work program when Brisbon ran towards him and stabbed him once in the upper arm with a sharpened wire.

A second death row inmate injured in the attack, William Jones, received a superficial stab wound to the head.

Both received treatment in the prison hospital for their wounds. After his incarceration, Gacy read numerous law books and filed voluminous motions and appeals, although he did not prevail in any.

Gacy's appeals related to issues such as the validity of the first search warrant granted to Des Plaines police on December 13, , and his objection to his lawyers' insanity plea defense at his trial.

In mid, the Supreme Court of Illinois upheld Gacy's conviction and ordered that he be executed by lethal injection on November The following year, Gacy filed a further post-conviction petition, seeking a new trial.

His then-defense lawyer, Richard Kling , argued that Gacy had been provided with ineffective legal counsel at his trial. This post-conviction petition was dismissed on September 11, The decision that he be executed was again appealed by Gacy, although his conviction was again upheld on September 29, , with the Illinois Supreme Court setting a renewed execution date of January 11, After Gacy's final appeal to the U.

That afternoon, he was allowed a private picnic on the prison grounds with his family. For his last meal , Gacy ordered a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, a dozen fried shrimp , french fries, fresh strawberries, and a Diet Coke.

Before the execution began, the chemicals used to perform the execution unexpectedly solidified, clogging the IV tube administering the chemicals into Gacy's arm and complicating the execution procedure.

Blinds covering the window through which witnesses observed the execution were drawn, and the execution team replaced the clogged tube to complete the procedure.

After ten minutes, the blinds were reopened and the execution resumed. The entire procedure took 18 minutes. This error apparently led to Illinois' subsequent adoption of an alternative method of lethal injection.

On this subject, one of the prosecutors at Gacy's trial, William Kunkle, said: "He got a much easier death than any of his victims".

According to published reports, Gacy was a diagnosed psychopath who did not express any remorse for his crimes. In the hours leading up to Gacy's execution, a crowd estimated to number over 1, gathered outside the correctional center; the majority of whom were vocally in favor of the execution, although a number of anti-death penalty protesters were also present.

It is in the possession of Helen Morrison , a witness for the defense at Gacy's trial, [] who has interviewed Gacy and other serial killers in an attempt to isolate common personality traits of violent sociopaths.

His body was cremated after the execution. In the months following Gacy's execution, many of his paintings were auctioned. Some were bought so that they could be destroyed in a June communal bonfire held in Naperville, Illinois and attended by approximately people, including family members of nine of Gacy's victims.

Only 27 of Gacy's victims were ever conclusively identified. Of Gacy's identified victims, the youngest were Samuel Stapleton and Michael Marino, both 14; the oldest was Russell Nelson, who was Six victims have never been identified.

Their identities were confirmed via dental records on December 29, The thirty-third victim linked to Gacy, James Mazzara, was identified the following day.

Four further victims were identified on January 6: Body 18 was identified as Michael Bonnin; Body 25 was identified as Robert Gilroy; the first victim exhumed from the crawl space was identified as Jon Prestidge; and the victim labelled Body 16 was identified as Russell Nelson.

A fishing license issued to Bonnin had previously been found in Gacy's home. On January 27, dental charts were used to identify Body 20 as John Mowery.

Two days later, Body 8 was identified as Matthew Bowman. Two months later, on March 27, the twenty-second victim recovered from Gacy's property was identified via dental records as William Carroll.

Winch was identified via distinctive healed bone fractures. A distinctive brown "tiger's eye" metal buckle with black stripings belonging to Winch had previously been found in Gacy's home.

The sixth victim exhumed from Gacy's property was identified via dental records as Samuel Stapleton on November 14, In March , Bodies 14 and 15 were identified via dental and radiology records as those Michael Marino and Kenneth Parker.

Their identities were confirmed too late to include among the identified victims at Gacy's trial. In October , Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart announced that investigators, having obtained full DNA profiles from each of the unidentified victims, were to renew their efforts to identify all of them.

At a press conference held to announce this intention, Sheriff Dart stated investigators are actively seeking DNA samples from individuals across the United States related to any male missing between and Test results thus far conducted have confirmed the identification of two victims, ruled out the possibility of numerous other missing youths as being victims of Gacy, [] [] and solved four unrelated cold cases dating between and However, the records had been destroyed after the dentist had retired.

He was the twenty-fourth victim exhumed from beneath Gacy's property. Six victims remain unidentified, five of whom had been buried beneath Gacy's crawl space, with one additional youth buried approximately 15 feet 4.

Based upon Gacy's confession, information relative to where the victims were buried in his crawl space relative to Gacy's identified victims, and forensic analysis, police were able to determine the most likely dates when his unidentified victims were killed.

This victim was buried near Gacy's barbecue pit, possibly in This man had two missing upper front teeth at the time of his disappearance, leading investigators to believe this particular victim most likely wore a denture.

This victim was almost certainly murdered between June 13 and August 5, Body 13 was a man likely to have been murdered between August and October He had long, dark brown, wavy hair and was between 18 and 22 years old.

He had light brown hair. As David Cram did not live with Gacy until August 21, , a possible date for this murder is between August 6 and 20, , although investigators have not discounted the possibility this victim may have been murdered later in The two victims murdered on the same day in May were buried alongside this victim, yet sequential burial patterns of three victims murdered in leave an equal possibility he may have been murdered in the spring or summer of Statements made by Gacy following his arrest leave a possibility this unidentified victim may have been murdered as early as Gacy's unidentified victims and likely date of murder given chronologically, including body numbers and place of burial, is as follows:.

At the time of Gacy's arrest, he had claimed to both Des Plaines and Chicago investigators that the total number of victims he had killed could be as high as Investigators did excavate the grounds of his property until they had exposed the substratum of clay beneath the foundations, yet only 29 bodies were found buried upon his property.

Gacy stated that after he had assaulted and then released Jeffrey Rignall in March , he had begun to throw his murder victims into the Des Plaines River.

He confessed to having disposed of five bodies in this manner. However, only four bodies recovered from the Des Plaines River were linked to Gacy.

Disputed DNA and dental tests conducted between and indicates that neither body found in the common grave in Gacy's crawl space and identified as those of Kenneth Parker and Michael Marino in was actually Marino.

In addition, the dental X-ray conducted upon the victim identified as Michael Marino had revealed the victim had all of his second molars , whereas a dental X-ray conducted upon Marino in March revealed one molar had not erupted.

Moreover, Rossi had stated that Hattula was known to have conflicts with Gacy, and when Hattula had "failed to show up at work", Gacy had informed him and several other employees Hattula had drowned.

Des Plaines authorities had contacted colleagues in Freeport during their investigation into Gacy, but were told Hattula had fallen to his death from a bridge.

However, Hattula's death has been officially ruled as asphyxia by drowning. Retired Chicago police officer Bill Dorsch has stated he has reason to believe there may be more victims buried within the grounds of the apartment building located at the block of West Miami Avenue in Chicago; a property which Gacy is known to have been the caretaker of for several years prior to his arrest.

When confronted by Dorsch as to his actions, Gacy stated he was performing work that he was too busy to do during the day.

Dorsch has also related that several other residents of West Miami Avenue have stated that, in the early- to mids, they had observed Gacy digging trenches in the grounds of the property; [] one of these residents has also stated that Gacy later placed plants in the elongated trenches he had dug.

At the time these actions had been observed, Gacy had still been married to Carole Hoff. In March , Cook County Sheriff's officials submitted a request to excavate the grounds of this property.

The Cook County State's Attorney denied this request, stating a lack of probable cause as the reason the submission was denied including the results of a previous search of the property.

Of the 12 remaining anomalies which police had not examined in greater detail on that occasion, four were described as being "staggeringly suggestive" as human skeletons.

This request was granted in January , and a search of the property was conducted in the spring. Both FBI sniffer dogs and ground-penetrating radar equipment were used in the second search of West Miami Avenue; however, the search yielded no human remains.

One of the first things Gacy told investigators after his arrest was that he had not acted alone in several of the murders: he asked whether "my associates" had also been arrested.

When questioned as to whether these associates had participated directly or indirectly in the killings, Gacy replied, "Directly". Gacy later specifically named Cram and Rossi as being involved in several of the murders.

In the s, he also informed Robert Ressler that "two or three" PDM employees had assisted in several murders. Gacy neither confirmed nor denied Ressler's suspicions.

Jeffrey Rignall, who had been assaulted and tortured by Gacy in March , was adamant that at one point during his abuse and torture, a young man with brown hair, kneeling before him, watched his abuse.

Moreover, on one occasion during the surveillance of Gacy, three days prior to his arrest, two officers followed him to a bar to which Gacy had driven to meet two of his employees: Michael Rossi and Ed Hefner.

An anxious Gacy was observed walking with the two out of earshot of the surveillance officers to talk privately before the three walked back within earshot of the officers, with Gacy exclaiming to both young men: "You'd better not let me down, you fuckers.

You owe it to me". The officers then overheard sections of a hushed conversation between Gacy and the two in which Rossi asked Gacy, "And what?

Buried like the other five? In interviews from death row, Gacy stated that at the time of his arrest, three PDM employees were also considered suspects in the disappearances of the missing boys investigators had linked to Gacy—all of whom he stated were in possession of keys to his house.

At the time, Norman operated a nationwide sex trafficking ring based in Chicago known as the Delta Project.

Gacy also claimed that he was not present in Chicago when 16 of the identified victims had disappeared.

In , two Chicago lawyers claimed travel records show that Gacy had been in another state at the time of three of the murders, implying he was assisted by one or more accomplices.

Investigators also note that Robert Young, the traveling companion with whom victim Russell Nelson was visiting Chicago at the time of his October disappearance, gave differing accounts of Nelson disappearance to both Nelson's family and investigators.

To Nelson's family, Young had stated Nelson failed to arrive at a bar at a prearranged time; to investigators, Young claimed he had last seen Nelson standing among a crowd who had gathered outside a Chicago bar and when his attention was diverted for a few moments, Nelson simply disappeared.

Investigators contend this could not have happened without his traveling companion noticing. Young is known to have filed a missing person's report with Chicago police, before unsuccessfully requesting money from Nelson's parents to finance a search for their son.

Two witnesses have stated that this roommate had recommended to Mowery that he meet "a man who is going out of town" two days before Mowery disappeared.

Criminal defense attorneys and investigators researching the possibility Gacy had not acted alone in several of the murders have stated there is "overwhelming evidence Gacy worked with an accomplice".

In , Sam Amirante, one of Gacy's two defense attorneys at his trial, authored procedures that were incorporated by the Illinois General Assembly into the Missing Child Recovery Act of Amirante has since stated that the primary inspiration for this legislation was the fact that at the time of the Gacy murders, there had been a hour period which police in Illinois had to allow to elapse before initiating a search for a missing child or adolescent.

Other states across America subsequently adopted similar procedures and sensibilities, as a result of which a national network aimed at locating missing children was gradually formed.

This national network has since developed into the Child Abduction Emergency—commonly known today as an Amber Alert. Isolated in his prison cell, Gacy began to paint.

The subjects he chose were varied, from birds to skulls, even other murderers. Many were of clowns, including himself as Pogo or Patches.

His "Hi Ho" series includes scenes from the Seven Dwarfs. Although Gacy was permitted to earn money from the sale of his paintings until , he claimed his artwork was intended "to bring joy into people's lives".

Gacy was unable to raise his bond fee, and was only transferred to the Anamosa State Penitentiary to begin his sentence on December 11, In June of that year, by mutual agreement the engagement was called off and she moved out.

This wound was first seen by his older sister, Joanne, at a family wake Gacy attended on the afternoon of January 3.

Oh, I see Jack drew a diagram of the crawl space". He did not perform autopsies upon the three other victims recovered from the Des Plaines River.

According to Gacy's account, his second victim had also been buried in the crawl space close to his first.

However, at his trial, prosecutor William Kunkle reasoned Gacy's second murder victim must have been the unidentified victim buried near his barbecue pit.
