Body 21 is one of six victims of John Wayne Gacy who remains unidentified.


Body 21's skeletal remains were found naked under Gacy's house in Norwood Park, Cook County, Illinois. He most likely was killed in a time range of August 6 to October 25, 1976, due to the fact his remains were found in a section of the crawl space holding five of Gacy's victims (two including him still unidentified), and that this particular victim was found buried directly above William Carroll (Body 22) who disappeared on 13 June 1976.

Sequential burial patterns of victims within the crawl space, plus the circumstantial fact that David Cram had not lived with Gacy until August 21, leave a possible date of between August 6 and 20, 1976 as the time this particular man was murdered. 

This victim had light brown hair, and (according to his autopsy report) had sustained no notable fractures prior to his murder. His skeletal remains were unclothed at the time of discovery.
