John Wayne Gacy

John Wayne Gacy, was an American serial killer and rapist who took the lives of at least 33 young males in Cook County, Illinois, burying most under his home. In 1994, he was executed by lethal injection, but was also known as the “Serial Killer Clown”. What makes this interesting is while imprisoned at the Menard Correctional Center, Gacy took up visual art. He created multiple paintings that he depicted himself as a clown. Furthermore, some of he's paintings were sold in an action in 2017 one of those paintings being “I’m Pogo the Clown”. Personally, I found it crazy that people are willing to pay for paintings from a serial killer. I can’t imagine someone putting that kind of art in their own home.
