Here’s a picture taken by police in serial killer John Wayne Gacy’s basement. The flags mark the locations of the bodies he haphazardly buried in the crawlspace of his Chicago-area home. Gacy buried only 26 of his 33+ victims down there, he confessed, because he simply ran out of room.
Earlier this year, a stockpile of photos taken at Gacy’s house surfaced online. The photographs, taken by Des Plaines police commander Aug Schwiesow, were uploaded to Schwiesow’s personal Picasa account and sat largely unnoticed.
