Many people know about the serial killer John Wayne Gacy and his abduction and murders of some 33 boys in the Chicago area between 1972 and 1978. Thanks to DNA the 8 unidentified victims may be identified, putting to rest many family’s search for their lost child. Prior to DNA, investigators had to rely on dental records. With these 8 boys, dental records were not available…so time marched on. Nearly 40 years has passed since these young victims were abducted and murdered. Thank Heaven for DNA and investigator, Jason Moran, who has taken it upon himself to methodically identify the eight boys who had remained unidentified until now. He has identified two more thru his diligence and DNA of living relatives being matched to the remains found under the home of John Wayne Gacy. Although it is not a good outcome to know that your loved one is no longer living, it does give closure to what has to be a living nightmare. This once again proves the importance of DNA.
