One of the most disturbing serial killers of the United States is John Wayne Gacy, a man who would work as a contractor for remodeling homes as well as working as a clown for birthday parties. John Wayne Gacy managed to murder 33 people over the years he was active – 29 of which were found on his property which is now for sale.
The original house which John Wayne Gacy lived in was demolished in 1979 after investigators went looking for the remains of Gacy’s victims. By 1986, a new house was constructed over the property. Its address was also changed from 8213 W. Summerdale Ave. to 8215, in unincorporated Norwood Park Township.
The 2,500 square foot house built over John Wayne Gacy’s property last sold in 2004 for $300,000. Now the current listing for the property is at a surprising $459,000. Here are the actual property details as described by the listing, and obviously they make no mention of the property’s creepy history and background:
“Norwood Park Township- Beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath Brick home in Maine South H.S District. Features updated kitchen with eating area that overlooks huge backyard, separate dining room, living room and family room with beautiful two sided fireplace. Huge second story loft can be used as a bedroom or office. Attached 2 car garage and clean basement with laundry. New tear off Roof. Close to all transportation. MUST SEE!”
It’s definitely a creepy thought to know the landmark of a serial killer’s reign of terror is now for sale. While it’s no longer his original home or address, it still exists as a reminder of one of America’s creepiest killers.
