    IL - Cook Co., Gacy Victim #19, Dec'78 - William 'Bill' Bundy



    I posted this in the general discussion thread, but thought I would update here as well.

    (carried above over from link in Gacy UID General discussion thread).

    A Gacy victim finally identified — 35 years after he went missing


    William “Bill” George Bundy — a 19-year-old North Sider, a Senn High School dropout — was identified after his brother Robert and sister Laura called a hotline set up by Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart.

    Bundy was reported missing in October 1976 after saying he was going to a party but forgetting his wallet at home

    Bundy’s mother suspected her son was among those killed by the Norwood Park Township man who became one of the country’s most-notorious killers and spoke with detectives at the time. But her son’s dentist had retired and destroyed all of his files, so no dental records were available to match to the body.

    I'm so glad Bill finally has his name back. I'm saddened he wasn't identified before his parents passed away, especially since he was in fact reported missing. Better late than never though.... 1 down 7 more to go.

    Sleep peacefully Bill.

    His poor mom. For her to be in denial that Bill was actually a victim of Gacy.... I am glad though that his siblings can finally have some closure...

    This is a different victim chaddy'. It is an already identified through dentals victim, Michael Marino, whose mother sought to have dna comparison through the courts and does not believe her son is one of the victims.

    Link regarding the Marino identification:

    According to the article I linked in the op Bill's mother always suspected her son was a victim and was unable to obtain dental records because Bill's dentist had retired and the dental records destroyed.
