Excerpt: John Wayne Gacy, Jr. (March 17, 1942 May 10, 1994) was an American serial killer also known as the Killer Clown who raped and murdered 33 teenage boys and young men between 1972 and 1978. Gacy buried 26 of his victims in the crawlspace of his home and three others elsewhere on his property, discarding the remaining four victims in a nearby river. Gacy became known as the "Killer Clown" due to his charitable services at fundraising events, parades and children's parties where he would dress as "Pogo the Clown," a character he devised himself.

Throughout his childhood and adolescence, Gacy continuously strove to make his stern father proud of him, but seldom received his approval; the elder Gacy regularly belittled him, often calling him a "sissy", "stupid" and a "Mama's boy". At the age of nine, Gacy was molested by a family friend. When he was 11, he was struck on the forehead by a swing. The resulting head trauma formed a blood clot in his brain that went unnoticed until he was 16, when he began to suffer blackouts. His father suspected the episodes were an effort to gain sympathy and accused his son of faking. Gacy was prescribed medication to dissolve the clot.
