Is John Wayne Gacy dead?
Although Gacy somehow maintained his innocence — claiming that the murders had been committed by an alternate personality — he was found guilty of 33 murders and became known as one of the most notorious and ruthless killers in history. He was sentenced to serve 12 death sentences and 21 natural life sentences.
On May 10, 1994, after serving almost a decade and a half at the Menard Correctional Center in Illinois, John Wayne Gacy died by lethal injection at the Stateville Correctional Center. While in prison, Gacy developed something of a passion for painting and his work has been exhibited publicly in galleries since his execution. In 2017, some of his pieces were even sold for as much as £4,000.
Gacy’s last meal consisted of 12 fried shrimp, a bucket of original recipe KFC, french fries, and a pound of strawberries. His last words were “Kiss my ass.”
