John Wayne Gacy, the american serial killer known as Pogo the Clown (holy fuck, I know) was convicted for the rape and murder of 33 teenage boys. When he was finally discovered, police found 28 of those bodies stuffed in the attic of his home.
The Making of a Monster - As a child, John grew up in a household where his alcoholic father was physically & verbally abusive toward the family. He constantly tried to please his father, but was rarely ever acknowledged. At the age of nine, he was molested by a family friend. At eleven, he was struck in the head with a playground swing causing severe head trauma. The injury was never treated & wasn’t even noticed until John was sixteen & began blacking out because it had evolved into a blood clot in his brain. His father thought he was faking for sympathy, & continued to ignore him. He was later prescribed medication to dissolve the blood clot. He attended four different high schools but never actually graduated, & at twenty, he left home after his father came home extremely intoxicated and tried to beat him with a fire poker (a fire poker, really?). He moved to Las Vegas & made it into Northwest Business College even though he didn’t graduate high school. He soon became a successful businessman and married fellow businesswoman Marylnn Meyers.
Blood In the Water - John, Marylnn and their newly born son soon moved to Iowa where John managed a chain of KFC restaurants in the town of Waterloo. It was here that John had his first sexual experience with another man. After having too much to drink, a co-worker performed oral sex upon John. He soon found himself deeply involved in the ~darker~ side of Waterloo, one that involved prostitution, wife swapping, child pornography & drugs. He’d visit the KFC’s he managed during the day to ‘evaluate’ his employees and opened a club in the back rooms of the restaurant where he’d allow boys to drink before making sexual advanced toward them. Several of the teenagers were conned into believing that John was conducting homosexual experiments in the interest of “scientific research” for which the kids were payed up to fifty dollars. He was eventually stopped after a fifteen year old named Daniel accused him of rape. John, who over time had become the “Outstanding Vice President” of the corp. he worked for, was sentenced to ten years in prison.
The System Fails - John was released after serving only eighteen months of his ten years in prison. He moved to Chicago, where he lured a fifteen year old boy into his car & tried to force him into sex. The boy escaped & John found himself in court once again. BUT, the boy failed to show up to court, & no one bothered to check John’s criminal record. Again, the monster slipped through the fingers of the government’s court system. John became engaged to Carole Hoff, a woman he briefly dated in high school, but was very soon divorced yet again after he confessed to her that he was bisexual and she began to find gay pornography hidden in their home. Always very charismatic, John began to involve himself in community activities & projects. He was appointed director of the Polish Constitution Day Parade & met First Lady Rosalynn Carter

The ‘Clown Killer’ - John eventually found the ‘Jolly Jokers Club’ (creepy as fuck) a club where local neighbors would dress as clowns or entertainers and volunteer at neighborhood kids’ birthday parties. John became ‘Pogo the Clown’ & would frequently volunteer… drunk.
Bloodshed - Anything after this point in John’s life is sheer bloodshed. He soon went on a rampage, raping and killing runaways and homeless boys all over Chicago. On one occasion, he picked up runaway Jack McCoy from a greyhound bus station & promised he could stay the night. John claims he woke up in the middle of the night to see McCoy standing in his doorway with a butcher knife in his hand. John leapt from his bed & McCoy raised his arms as a signal of surrender accidentally slicing John’s arm. John twisted the knife out of McCoy’s hand & slammed him against the bedroom doorway. McCoy kicked John in the stomach & John repeatedly stabbed McCoy in the chest with the butcher knife. Okay, now get ready for the biggest fail in communication EVER. John then walked into his kitchen and found an open carton of eggs, unsliced bacon & a full breakfast of French toast and orange juice set for two. McCoy had walked into John’s room to wake him while absentmindedly carrying a knife in his hands. John ended up burying Jack McCoy in a crawlspace & covering the grave with cement.
John Wayne Gacy went on to murder for years & years, and wasn’t discovered until December, 1978. He enthusiastically explained to the police his ‘gag tricks’, how victims would convulse for “an hour or two” before finally dying. He was put on Death Row & was executed May 10, 1994. His last words to his lawyer from his cell were that killing him couldn’t bring any of “his boys” back. And that they could all “kiss my ass”
Many believed John had severe Personality Disorder but after examination of his brain, researchers found that John Wayne Gacy, was completely mentally healthy. He had not mental illness. He was in no way ‘suffering’. John Wayne Gacy was a monster.
