John Wayne Gacy clown killer
Investigators are urging relatives of possible victims who disappeared between 1970 and Gacy's 1978 arrest to undergo saliva tests to compare their DNA with that of the skeletal remains.
Detectives say they believe the passage of time might actually work in their favor. Sheriff Tom Dart said he doubts that all eight victims will be identified. The remains of eight unidentified victims of John Wayne Gacy, serial killer and sometime party clown, have been secretly exhumed for DNA identification.
U.S. news media reported that the Cook County Sheriff's Office wished to DNA test the remains and identify eight unidentified victims, who had been buried in Chicago-area cemeteries with grave markers inscribed with "We Remembered."
The remains were recovered from a Chicago-area home owned by Gacy, convicted of the sexual assault and murder of 33 boys and young men in the 1970s.
Relatives of young men who disappeared in the 1970s have been urged to undergo a saliva test to help determine any DNA link to the skeletal remains, the LA Times reports.
