    House on Property Where John Wayne Gacy's Home Once Stood Listed for Sale
    FILE PHOTO -- This is John Wayne Gacy's police arrest photo from Dec. 21, 1978.

    The house that sits on the property where John Wayne Gacy buried many of his victims - and where the notorious serial killer's home once stood - is now for sale. 

    The home, located at 8215 W. Summerdale Ave. in unincorporated Norwood Park Township is on the market for $459,000, according to its listing. 

    The Chicago Sun-Times reports the home is the same location as Gacy's house, but had a different address. According to the publication, the three-bed, two-bathroom home was built after Gacy's ranch was demolished in 1979 during the search for bodies and given a new address, switching the numbers from 8213 to 8215. 

    It was last sold in 2004 for $300,000.

    [CHI] Long-Lost Gacy Letter Found by High School Newspaper Staff
    The subject of countless books, television movies, and cable documentaries, just about every angle of John Wayne Gacy’s life has been explored. But this week, a new chapter opened in the unlikeliest of places. Phil Rogers reports.
    (Published Thursday, May 2, 2019)

    Gacy’s home near O’Hare yielded a chamber of horrors as the burial site of dozens of victims. Investigators found 29 bodies buried on the Gacy property, most in a crawl space beneath his home. Four had been thrown from the I-55 bridge over the Des Plaines River.

    The listing makes no mention of the history of the property, only mentioning its "huge backyard, separate dining room, living room and family room with beautiful two sided fireplace." It calls the home a "MUST SEE!"
