    The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children along with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office are releasing new facial reconstructions for 2 of John Wayne Gacy’s unknown victims.

    Gacy raped and murdered young boys and men between 1972 and 1978 in Cook County, Illinois. He was arrested in 1978 and was convicted of murdering at least 33 young boys. Six of those boys/young men remain unidentified. Gacy found some his victims hitchhiking and at bus stops. The remaining unknown victims could be from anywhere.

    NCMEC worked with Cook County Sheriff’s Office to create new facial reconstructions for 2 of those victims, John Doe #10 and John Doe #13.

    In addition to the new facial reconstructions, NCMEC is releasing a video, Gacy - Unsolved , highlighting the work of Detective Sgt. Jason Moran and Sheriff Tom Dart with Cook County Sheriff’s Office to identify the remaining victims of Gacy.

    • John Doe #13 - The remains have been determined to belong to a white male, 18-22 years old. He stood approximately 5’9” – 6’02” tall. He had dark brown wavy hair. One of his upper teeth was displaced behind another tooth. It is possible that this characteristic would have been noticeable to others that knew him well. It’s estimated that the male died between 1972-1978. The images shown are a facial reconstruction created by a NCMEC Forensic Artist and depicts what the male may have looked like in life.

    It's wonderful that NCMEC is now taking the time to redo the facial reconstructions of the JWG victims. I think NCMEC's recons will definitely help in the long run when identifying these John Does. The unfortunate thing about the original recons is that they all looked the same, albeit the skull sizes. With this method, I think it will be more recognizable for victims families seeking their missing loved one.
