    I'm currently listening to part 2 of the Gacy episodes. I knew Robert Piest's brother for many years before he passed. It was not something Ken spoke of really, but those of us who knew him well knew about the story. I only met their mom towards the end Ken's life, but she was still very haunted by her son's death. I was told that, understandably, she was never the same & never recovered. I haven't finished the episode yet, but I appreciate you telling his story. On a side note, their last name is pronounced like priest w/o the r. (Pee-st)

    I believe that JWG killed his victims to avoid going back to prison.

    Hey guys, I was a little confused at why the story with Rob was told in first person if he didn't survive... Gacy was the only other person there, so how would he know that his own face would change and he'd be a completely different person ??

    That was just how I saw the crime going down, not an actual account. Gacy's face changing I threw in there because his attorneys both said that when he confessed to them that he went into a zombie like state and his face changed. They both believe that he was in his killing mode and that it caused some kind of transformation in him. Nic

    Why do you think all these things happened pre 80s... don't hear about anything now except for a lone gunman... thoughts? I'm glad though, no Bundy's or Gacy's or Dahmer's these days..

    There have been plenty of these bad guys, 80's, 90's and even more recently. They are rare breeds though. I do agree with you there does seem to be more of these guys with higher numbers back then. One thing though is technology is certainly working against them so maybe now they are getting caught before they can reach such numbers. But some where right now in the 48 states there is a long haul trucker with just as many kills as Ted Bundy and he's still active. Check the FBI investigation on long haul trucker -serial killer connection

    Sam Amirante described the scene with Rob Piest in his book Defending a Monster. I think it was similar to what you described. In an interview, he said that when Gacy confessed he told him what happened. Thanks for doing what you do.

    Tadpole- yes he did and I thought it was brilliant and that's why I recommended his book. I wanted to include both the scene with Piest and mix it with some of what he described from the the Gacy's interview when Gacy's eyes went black and he became a "zombie." It's the most interesting Gacy book in my opinion, thanks for backing me up Tadpole! Nic

    No problem, just wanted to say that Joe Kozenczak's book, The Chicago Killer was very good. Interesting to get a detective's point of view. You've probably already read it, but for anyone else interested to know more, I'd recommend that one a well. Thanks for doing what you do!

    Creepy encounter... My aunt almost hired JWG, as a clown for my 5th birthday in early 1978. We lived in what is now considered Bucktown. They were planning my party and she happened to meet him through random chance. She had his business card! When this came out on the news, she flipped out and had a break down. She fainted and the entire family was shocked. She ripped the card, crying and shaking. This has been a story in our family. To this day, she remembers that whole ordeal. She wasn't too bright, so to her he didn't seem like creep, at the time.
