Between December 22 and 29, 1978, 27 bodies were recovered from John Wayne Gacy’s suburban home, 26 of which were found buried in his crawl space, with one additional victim being found buried beneath the concrete floor of Gacy’s garage.

During one of his interviews, former Des Plaines officer Mike Albrecht recalled, “That odor from the heat, from the crawl space. [We] said right away, it smelled like a morgue!”
