Killer Clown: The John Wayne Gacy Murders
Killer Clown: The John Wayne Gacy Murders | Terry Sullivan, Peter Maiken
11 posts | 9 read | 10 to read
The Real Story Of John Wayne Gacy-- By The Man Who Helped Catch Him He was a model citizen. A hospital volunteer. And one of the most sadistic serial killers of all time. But few people could see the cruel monster beneath the colorful clown makeup that John Gacy wore to entertain children in his Chicago suburb. Few could imagine what lay buried beneath his house of horrors--until a teenaged boy disappeared before Christmas in 1978, leading prosecutor Terry Sullivan on the greatest manhunt of his career. Reconstructing the investigation--from records of violence in Gacy's past, to the gruesome discovery of 29 corpses of abused boys in Gacy's crawlspace and four others found in the nearby river--Sullivan's shocking eyewitness account takes you where few true crime books ever go: inside the heart of a serial murder investigation and trial. This updated edition features new revelations that have emerged using DNA evidence to confirm the identities of additional victims--and 16 pages of dramatic photos. "An unnerving true crime story of murder, terror, and justice." --Dallas Morning News "GRIPPING."--Publishers Weekly "CHILLING."--Nashville Banner "UNNERVING."--Dallas Morning News

Next up!!

I don't know why this says “watch again“. I think I have way too many people using my account, lol. Too many more serial killer “re-watches“ and Amazon might start getting concerned 😂

After reading & watching Mindhunter I'm mildly obsessed with serial killers these days.

Bookartbookmarks Me too! There‘s a podcast called The Root of Evil that is so good. Or the book The Devil in the White City that‘s written from a true story. 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Bookartbookmarks I really need to get into podcasts, this one sounds right up my alley. 1mo
BarbaraBB This is such a coincidence. I just open Litsy to find out what books there are about Black Dahlia since I am listening to Roots of Evil right now @Bookartbookmarks ! I am a bit of obsessed with these true crime podcasts. You should try them, @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego ! Also very good are Cold and To Live and Die in LA. And Serial of course (esp the first season)! 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @BarbaraBB thanks for the suggestions! 1mo

If you like reading about play-by-play police procedures then this book is for you.
I wanted so much more out of this book than what it delivered. I wanted a little more insight into Gacy himself. This book was more of a fact delivering work instead of a story that is being told. It's just fact after fact after fact. And some facts that are told in the book need more information and we as the reader never get it. Sadness ☹️

BethM Look at you reading up a storm! 5mo
TheReadingMermaid @BethM girl I have been power reading for the past 2 weeks!!! These are my spoils... Enjoy! 😘😘 5mo

I am afraid of clowns and John Wayne Gacy is partly the reason for it.

#Allhallowsread #scarynonfiction @Litsy This is my pick for today! I went through a serial-killer-obsessed phase a few years ago...that mixed in with my unsettling clown phobia led me to this read! A deliciously disturbing narration about John Gacy's life and the atrocious crimes he committed. These are the real monsters!

Jess_Read_This Omg. I'd be scarred for life if I read this. The cover alone scares the beejezus out of me! 3y
