Body 13 is one of serial killer John Wayne Gacy's 33 known victims, and one of six who still remain unidentified.

Case

Body 13's skeletal remains were found under Gacy's house. He was naked, possibly from being sexually assaulted. Gacy may have killed this youth in the range of August to October 1976. This is known to be the most likely date of his murder and burial via the fact the trench his remains were found in were described at Gacy's trial as being dug by an employee (David Cram) as being the "only" trench he had dug in Gacy's crawl space on or prior to his terminating his employment contract with Gacy on October 5, 1976. His dental coverage shows that he may have been suffering from a terrible toothache around the time of his disappearance. The youth also had very dark brown, wavy hair, described on his autopsy report as being "almost black" in visual appearance.

His body was located in the north east corner of the crawlspace, diagonal to the body of Russell Nelson (Body 16) and also nearby the body of Michael Bonnin (Body 18).
