8. Video: “We don’t want no more bodies”: the Chicago Police’s shocking response to the possibility that John Wayne Gacy had buried additional victims at Miami and Elston

When John Wayne Gacy was arrested in 1978 and the excavations began that would reveal the remains of dozens of victims buried in and around his home, an awful realization clicked for Bruno Muczynski.

As you saw in the last post, Muczynski lived for a time at 6114 W. Miami, in the small apartment building where Gacy worked as caretaker. Though he and his wife, Lynn, had already moved away when the news about Gacy’s hideous killing spree took over the headlines, they vividly remembered his strange activities in the basement, and they knew the authorities needed to be clued in about them.

Muczynski, a Chicago police officer at the time, knew that Cook County was conducting the investigation on Gacy, but he preferred to call his own people to report his suspicions, so he rang up the Chicago Police Department’s detectives division.

As he explains in this Norwester Productions video, when he called the police, he was given a very clear response.
