''Gacy Victim Five
''On December 26, 1978 authorities uncovered human skeletal remains in the crawl space of a house in Norwood Park, Illinois, a small community northwest of Chicago. The house was the residence of the executed sexual predator and serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Forensic anthropologists determined the victim was a 22 to 32-year-old, 5’ 9” White/Caucasian male. Found on the body of the young man was a light-colored, long-sleeved shirt or jacket; dark-colored trousers; socks; and a leather belt with buckle. The date of death was most likely between December 1976 and March 15, 1977 based on the location of the remains between two other victims who have since been identified. Of Gacy’s 33 victims this is one of six still unidentified.

They did not announce it yet, but I think there are two new NCMEC reconstructions (for Body 10 and Body 13), not sure if it is somehow connected with the process of DNA extraction.Does anybody know which victim's identity DDP is going to research next?
