11. John Wayne Gacy – The Original Creepy Clown
If you’ve ever told anybody that you have a fear of clowns, John Wayne Gacy is probably one of the main reasons as to why. Certainly that’s where I fall, even if there are people out there that’d say Stephen King‘s IT was the main proprietor. So yes, John Wayne Gacy, otherwise known as The Killer Clown, was an American serial killer whom was convicted of sexually assaulting and murdering around 33 teenage boys and young men.
Although the victim number has been confirmed, he’s also been convicted of sexual assault, indecent liberties with a child, and sodomy among all else. While his killings spanned between the years of 1972 and 1978, John Wayne Gacy was sentenced to death in 1980 while previously spending 14 years on death row. Much like Ted Bundy was executed via the electric chair, John Wayne Gacy was executed via lethal injection at the Stateville Correctional Center.
