Video: “We don’t want no more bodies”

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, something clicked for Bruno Muczynski.

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 they needed to make a call.

Muczynski, a Chicago police officer at the time, knew that Cook County was conducting the investigation on Gacy, but he called the police–his own people–to report what he’d seen. In this video he describes what happened.
