Body 28 was one of 33 known victims of John Wayne Gacy, and one of six who still remain unidentified.


The victim's body was found in 1979. This victim was aged between 14 and 18 at the time of his murder and was buried approximately 15 feet from the barbecue pit in Gacy's backyard, whereas the rest of the unidentified males were located in his crawl space. This victim likely died earlier than the other victims, most likely around early 1974, or perhaps in 1975.

Gacy stated that he disposed of the body in his closet prior to burial, however, he soon noticed that fluid leaked out of the boy's mouth and nose, staining his carpet; he then proceeded to typically stuff cloth-like material in his victims' mouths to prevent the leakage.


The victim's clothing was noted to have decomposed significantly.

  • Blue jeans
  • A shirt
  • Underwear
  • Socks


  • He had brown hair
  • He possibly had a healed fracture on his upper-right arm
