In the winter of 1978-79, the foundation of John Wayne Gacy's home and garage were excavated to discover the remains of 27 of his victims. This set of photographs (some NSFW) by retired Des Plaines Detective Aug Schwiesow shows some of what the investigators found. [via]


UPDATE: Chicagoist has a little more background from Schwiesow about the photos.
