Local media outlets are reporting that another round of test results has failed to match the DNA of known victims of John Wayne Gacy with DNA recently submitted by families of young men who disappeared in the 1970s.
When Sheriff Tom Dart recently began moving forward on new attempts to identify the eight known victims who were never ID’d, more than 100 families submitted their DNA. From those submissions, sheriff’s investigator Jason Moran selected 30 to 40 missing persons who seemed particularly promising because of the traits they shared with Gacy’s known victims. Nevertheless, they failed to match.
Though their DNA will go into a national database of missing persons, we wonder if their remains would be relatively easy to locate–at the building at 6114 W. Miami.
We’ve demonstrated in earlier posts that there is ample evidence to suggest that there might be bodies there, and that grieving families deserve a chance to end part of their endless suffering: wondering what happened.
In March Sheriff Dart submitted an application for a search warrant for the property to state’s attorney Anita Alvarez, but Alvarez denied his request. He has indicated to us that he may well update his application in light of Detective Bill Dorsch’s findings.
No one could look at the material that Dorsch has collected, some of which we’ve presented here in earlier posts, and continue to assert that there’s not enough evidence to dig.
