Body 5 is one of six unidentified victims of John Wayne Gacy. His first name was possibly "Greg" or "Gregory," based on the sole personal item found with his remains.

Case

The victim was located in the northeast corner of a grave site in the crawl space of Gacy's home. His murder is estimated to have taken place between November 1976 and March 15, 1977, based on the location and circumstances of other murders. Jon Prestidge, who was murdered on March 15, 1977, was buried directly above. Gregory Godzik, killed on December 12, 1976, had dug this dumping location and was found nearby, along with the remains of John Szyc, killed on January 20, 1977.

The exact cause of this victim's death, as well as the circumstances surrounding his initial encounter with Gacy remains unknown. All of the victims had been raped and tortured before death.
