John Wayne Gacy was a sex offender and serial killer who lived in the Chicago area and sexually assaulted and murdered at least 33 young boys and men. He was known in his community for dressing up in clown makeup for children’s charities and neighborhood parties. His victims willingly entered Gacy’s home and some even put on their own handcuffs or restraints when Gacy promised to perform a magic trick. Gacy would then rape, torture, and asphyxiate his victims. Most of his victims were buried in a crawl space in his home.
