What infamous crimes did John Wayne Gacy commit?

User Avatar
Gacy, born in Chicago in 1942, seemed to be on the right tract to a successful life dispite a troubled childhood. Twice married with two children, Gacy was accused of raping a boy. At about this time his second wife noticed a bad smell coming from the crawlspace under their home. The second Mrs. Gacy sought a divorce and Gacy was on his own. It was all he needed to let his murdering ways have free rein. With rumors of young boys and men being raped and other simply disappearing police paid a visit to Gacy's home. One officer had worked in a mortuary and recognized the bad smell as decomposing flesh. Police found seven bodies in the crawlspace and another six buried in the back yard. Thirty-three murders in all, Gacy lured them into his house, where they were handcuffed, tortured and finally strangled. Gacy was executed by lethal injection at Stateville Correction Center on May 10, 1994.

What was John Wayne Gacy's life like in prison?

User Avatar
As amazing as it seems, Gacy's life behind bars was much better than most inmates could only dream about. He was allowed certain perks because he was so well-known. In fact he made friends with a high school student when he never should have had any access to young males. Jason Moss was working on a project about serial killers and of course Gacy was more than happy to help him out. Jason Moss got himself into a bad situation and for months Gacy called the Moss home and tried to manipulate Jason and wanted to meet his younger brother. Several years later Moss wrote a book about his experience with Gacy, named "The Last Victim". And he really was. He thought he had control of the situation and he could have ended up a statistic. Actually he did. On October 3, 2006 Jason Moss committed suicide. There is much speculation as to if the Gacy thing might have been part of the problem. Only Jason Moss knew. Not long after Moss broke communication with Gacy, John W. had a date with the executioner. Interesting Fact:Gacy spent much of his time on death row painting, clowns were a favorite subject (big surprise). The actor Johnny Depp somehow ended up with a Gacy painting. He was under the impression that the money would go to victims family members. When he found out otherwise he got rid of the painting and didn't look back. Good for him.

I could find no information on Gacy's two children from his first marriage. After an arrest Gacy's wife divorced him and he had no further contact with his children. It is possible that they changed their names and do not want to be found.

How John Wayne Gacy commit his murders?

User Avatar
Gacy, who was a homosexual serial killer, usually killed his victims by strangulation. Not a pleasant way to die. Contrary to what most people think and what they see on TV or in the movies, strangulation is not easy and it takes much longer than people think. The victim may or may not loose conciousness quickly, and if not they usually struggle fiercely. But Gacy lost his own struggle in the electric chair. To the families of his victim's it probably seemed he didn't struggle enough.
