Wayne was a father, a husband, a businessman and an active, well-liked member of the local community. That is, until 26 corpses were found buried in the crawlspace of his home in Chicago, Illinois. The rest of his victims were buried elsewhere on his property or discarded in a nearby river.
Gacy, a determined sociopath, claimed to have no remorse for his crimes, and until the end of his life remained in complete denial about them. In this clip, Gacy becomes confused by his own tangled web of lies, and in his determined attempt to keep his story straight, he makes a crucial slip-up that was now captured for posterity.
Fast forward to the 4:10 mark to see Gacy try to cover it up his blunder by telling the interviewer "Oh! Ok, I'm sorry if I led you to believe that. Strike it then. That is wrong." He's visibly seen realizing his mistake when the interviewer, Walter Jacobson, informs him of his slip up. Though he can probably "strike" out his own memories or truths for his own advantage, the memory and permanence of film does not change and Gacy was ultimately executed on orders of the Supreme Court by lethal injection.l< << PREV 2 of 10 NEXT >>
