    IL - John Wayne Gacy

    Cool

    Wow! Sad that he disappeared without regard for his family (siblings), but nice to have a happy ending for once!
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I don't understand why he never contacted his family? Glad he is safe and not one of Gacys victims.

    From the second link above:

    Wayne Lovell said he left home because he was at odds with his mother.

    "I never felt wanted at home, so I left," he said.
    Obviously there's more to this story than we will probably ever know.

    I am glad they are finally working to identify Gacy's victim's. And the fact that this attempt led to the a family reuniting is an unexpected bonus. Glad to see it happen.

    Though I can see some mixed feelings for this family. Elation to find their brother alive and well. Maybe a bit of anger for all the years he left them thinking that he was the victim of a serial killer. Anger that he not only left their mother with no word, but he left them too.

    I don't understand people that can just up and go with no regard for their family.

    I'm glad he's not a victim of anyone but himself.

    Cool

    Great to hear that. I wonder why he disappeared all those years.

    In other news, John Wayne Gacy is still rotting Hell along side with Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Adolf Hitler.

    I have much compassion for him (and his family). It's too sad that he never felt loved (or was it "wanted"). Everybody deserves both.

    Perhaps they can "mend the fences", so to speak, and have a happy life together now.

    This story reminds me of "Life is what happens while you're busy planning something else" (rough quote, John Lennon). RIP John

    It is stories like this that give families who are victims of missing persons hope that one day their loved one will show up or call.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    i'm not going to be so quick to judge him. We don't know the whole story. Abuse? Manipulation? Anger towards him at home? Maybe an un-diagnosed mental illness. I'm just glad he's safe

    I'm sure that sometimes the individual is just too selfish to think about the relatives s/he left behind.

    But in many cases, s/he genuinely believes s/he won't be missed. IMO it usually takes more than one person to create that impression.
