John Wayne Gacy House Location - Real Haunt in Chicago IL
John Wayne Gacy was a serial killer back in the 1970's who hid the remains of at least 29 different people in and around his home on Summerdale Avenue. In 1979, the home was demolished, but locals were confused at the fact that the lot remained mostly barren for years after. The grass and weeds did not seem to grow at all on the property. Because of this, stories began to emerge that the property was haunted by Gacy's ghostly victims. In 1989, a new home was built on the property. Its new owner petitioned the city to change the number of the street address.
