Bill Dorsch deserves a good night’s sleep tonight. If Michael Sneed’s report, just posted online, is correct, the sheriff’s finally been given the go-ahead by the state’s attorney to perform a search for additional victims of the serial killer John Wayne Gacy at the apartment building where Gacy worked as a caretaker in the mid-70s.
The capitulation comes on a Friday night, a time carefully chosen, no doubt, to attract the least possible attention. Local politicos typically use Friday to announce stories they want to get buried in the news cycle by whatever happens over the weekend. Good luck with that.
Previous posts here detail the testimony of various eyewitnesses who saw what seems in retrospect to be evidence that Gacy was boldly burying bodies at the corner of Miami and Elston, on Chicago’s northwest side.
Have a look at our exclusive videos and see if you’re as mystified as we’ve been about why it took so long for Sheriff Tom Dart and SA Anita Alvarez to agree that the property deserved a look.
One person and one person alone is responsible for any new discoveries. Former Chicago police detective William Dorsch had a hunch and he wouldn’t let it go. Hang on to your wig hats, there’s a lot more to come.
