John Wayne Gacy tortured, tortured, and killed at least 33 young men and boys.
Killer Clown John Wayne Gacy got away with 33 murders. Living his life as a seemingly-charming party entertainer, Pogo the Clown, he cried customers, clients, and even loved ones. It was only when his second wife, Carole Hoff, discovered his porn stash and creepy sex dungeon, his true identity had been disclosed.
“She had these suspicions based on finding the pornographic magazines and things that John had said. I believe she knew what she was going to locate, and she discovered it,” states Tim Cahill, the author of”Buried Dreams: Inside the Mind of John Wayne Gacy,” at REELZ’s new docuseries, John Wayne Gacy: A Monster is Born.
“What she sees makes her mouth drop,” says crime writer Shirley Lynn Scott. “She sees a red light, she sees a mirror propped up — which is there so someone can watch what is going on.”
Gacy portrayed himself as a loving father of two, but behind closed doors, he mistreated, tortured, and murdered at least 33 young men and boys.
“Unlike their marital bed — which is a nice, soft, comfy place in their area — there’s something cold and hard about this,” says Scott of Gacy’s torture room. “There is something sort of horrible about it.”
Hoff now knew her husband was not working late during the night, he had been having sex with adolescent boys in her own home.
“Now she knows the truth about her husband: he’s not just bisexual, he’s not just gay, he’s a pedophile, and that is really his deep, dark secret,” says Scott.
John Wayne Gacy: A Monster is Produced, premieres Sunday, August 18, at 9 ET/ PT on REELZ.
