Riassunto: A true story of mass murder in a Chicago suburb.
Successful businessman, community benefactor, good friend and neighbor-- and perverted mass murderer.
Over a period of three years, John Wayne Gacy, Jr. sexually tortured and murdered 33 boys. His friends and neighbors in his unassuming Illinois community never suspected a thing. Gacy was a Jekyll-and-Hyde figure, leading an outwardly normal life, but secretly brutalizing dozens of young men in a hidden lair, and concealing their bodies under the floorboards of his suburban home.
Through extensive personal interviews with those who knew Gacy, veteran true-crime scribe Clifford L. Linedecker takes us on a shocking ride through Gacy's life, delving deep into the man's troubled past, recounting his appalling series of murders, and recreating the drama of his trial-- which resulted in his execution by lethal injection in 1994. Gruesome and horrifying, The Man Who Killed Boys reveals stark terror set amid the daily lives of an ordinary community.

Descrizione libro St. Martin's Press (New York), 1980. Hardcover / Hardback. Condizione libro: Fine. No Jacket. First edition. Hardback. Written shortly after John Wayne Gacy, Jr., was arrested, while he was awaiting trial, this is a snapshot of one of the world's most prolific serial killers. Known as the Killer Clown, Gacy sexually assaulted and murdered at least 33 young men, the majority of whom lived in the Chicago area. The author interviewed friends, associates and business partners and discovered Gacy, for a madman, was remarkably functional. He was married twice, ran a successful contracting business and even managed to involve himself into the civic life of Chicago. In May 1978, he was famously photographed meeting with First Lady Rosalynn Carter. The author provides a full portrait, following Gacy through his early days in Iowa to life in Chicago, living on top of a crawl space that he used as a working graveyard. A story told when Gacy was still alive and the terror was fresh in everyone's minds.Illus. + Epilogue. 222pp. 8vo. h/back.
