John Wayne Gacy investigation leads to breakthrough in separate, 36-year-old cold case
FOX6 ^ | September 24, 2015

Because of John Wayne Gacy, John Doe No. 89 now has a name.

It’s Andy Drath, who as a teenage boy fit the profile of many of the serial killer’s victims. Authorities don’t think Drath was one of them, though investigators looking into Gacy’s past did manage to put two and two together in a major breakthrough in a 36-year-old cold case and major relief to Drath’s family.

Sad story. John Wayne Gacy was one of the worse serial killers in US history with 33 known victims. The medial has never referred to him as the gay killer. We should ban the rainbow flag out of respect for the victims.

... he went on trial. It ended with his conviction for raping and killing 33 boys and young men who he had lured into his home over a span of six years.

In Afghanistan pervs who chain up and rape young boys don't even get a slap on the wrist.

Many of his victims were buried in the cellar of Gacy’s home.

A culture of serial sodomite rapists.

Wasn't that also true of Dahmer?

An interesting article. I hope the writer gets a better grasp of English.

Yeah I meant media. Gacy and Dahmer never posed with a rainbow flag. If some right wing Christian fundamentalist killed 33 people we would never have heard the end of it.

Good point.

Many forget that Gacy was also an ardent Democrat:

***Convicted of 33 murders, Gacy was sentenced to death for 12 of these killings on March 13, 1980. He spent 14 years on death row before he was executed by lethal injection at Stateville Correctional Center on May 10, 1994.****

Lived 14 more years than he should have been allowed.

If anyone can stomach it, the movie ‘Gacy’ is quite good. The man truly was a monster.

What about Andy the German Tomato, who flew the jet into the mountain. Killed a lot more than Gacy.

Boy did that story go down the memory hole.

And just as the American judges were 'legalizing' gay marriage in the US.

American soldiers who intervene to save a boy from rape get worse punishment than the rapists do

There’s an Ed Gein movie. People in Wisconsin don’t like his name even being mentioned!
