Serial Killer Took His Secrets to His Execution

There are many arguments as to whether the Death Penalty should be a fixture in the United States. But even those that disagree with it will admit that they are not sad that John Wayne Gacy was executed for his crimes two decades ago. The Serial Killer left a trail of tears and horror from 1972 to 1978. He was confirmed to have killed 33 teenaged boys and young men. Gacy, would sexually abuse and murder his targets often by strangulation. Some of his victims had even done odd jobs for the construction company owner. Gacy had the public fooled. He was a married father who was known as an upstanding member of his community. He would often dress up as a clown to entertain young children at parties.

When he was finally arrested, the news shocked the country and made news across the globe. Gacy had buried 26 of his victims under the crawlspace of his home at Neptune Park Township in Illinois. Several others were buried on other parts of the property and several were dumped at the Des Plaines River. Until his death by execution in 1994, he would deny any involvement in the deaths of his victims. Sadly, Law Enforcement believes Gacy may have more victims in Illinois and neighboring states. He took that secret as well the identities of four of his victims who to this day have not been identified. It is possible that they may have been abducted some of the unidentified at bus stops (Gacy would pretend to be a police officer). IT is likely that the four are runaways or even transients. Two of his known victims were from Michigan and Minnesota, so it is possible that his seven unidentified victims could be from there or anywhere in the US.

Gacy's victims were all white males. The remaining seven unidentified are believed to have ranged in ages between ages 14 to 32. They ranged in height from possibly 5 foot 2 inches to 6 foot 2 inches. Some of the older victims could have been male prostitutes but that is not confirmed. DNA has been recovered from all the victims and identification is possible. If you believe your loved one could be a victim of John Wayne Gacy "The Clown Killer" please visit this website http://www.cookcountysheriff.org/sheriffs_police/gacy/gacy.html

UPDATE 7-19-2017: James "Jimmie" Haakenson who was sixteen years old has been identified as one of Gacy's unidentified murder victims. It is highly likely that the remaining unidentified victims of Gacy are from other states and not from Illinois.

Decades Apart - Two Babies Dead and Nameless

The town of Greenwich is best known as being one of the wealthiest towns in America. It's had it's fair share of homicides including the famous Martha Moxley murder in 1976. Ten years later, another murder victim was found in town but police and the public don't talk about it much at all. It was May 16th, 1986 when a sanitation worker found the remains of a newborn infant that had been placed in a dumpster at the Town Hall Annex apartments at 27 Havemeyer Place. An autopsy would prove that the male child died from ashyxiation. He was 3 pounds 10 ounces and described as having "black features". It is believed that the mother of the child may have been from out of town but either she or someone she knew was familiar with the Greenwich area. The baby could have been hispanic or bi-racial. The mother of the dead baby could have been a teenager. If you have any information about this case please call the Greenwich Police Department at (203) 340-9752. You call can remain confidential.

Baby's Names a Mystery

The afternoon of Feb. 28, 1981, when law enforcement went to Sycamore Avenue of Sioux Falls in South Dakota and found the body of a newborn baby boy. It is believed that the baby had been in the ditch by the side of the road around 24 hours and may have lived only a few hours. The boy appeared to have been born healthy, nearly full-term, and the coroner concluded hypothermia and blood loss likely took his life. One interesting note is that the umbilical cord was still attached to the child. The boy was given the name "Andrew" and his last name and that of his parents is still unknown.

If you have any information about this case, please call the Sioux Falls Police Department at 605-367-7234.

Was This Woman and her Killer Ever Identified

We are not sure if this case was ever solved. Around October 12th or 13th in 1973, the body of a white female estimated age 20 to 35 years old was a victim of strangulation and found in a trunk. She had black hair and was around five foot one and 109 pounds. The trunk was made of plywood and covered with black paper. The trunk was found two miles from Stamford, CT and four miles from Eaton's Neck, New York. The victim wore a size seven cotton dress with a purple, green red floral design on a beige background. She also wore silver color nail polish. There were other unusual items including a gold wedding band that was inscribed "Bristol 14-K". It is likely that Law Enforcement from Suffolk County is investigating the case, fingerprints were given to the FBI in 1974. The theory from newspaper articles is that the trunk floated along the Connecticut coastline. It has also been weighted with an anchor and a grappling hook. The case is mentioned because if it is still unsolved, it is not on any of the unidentified databases.
