Al Cannistras insight:

This article has resurrected buried memories – friends and I used to hang out at a forest preserve off East River Road in NW Chicago. So did Gacy. Often, we saw him driving slowly through the preserve and unknown to us at the time, perhaps cruising for his next victim. When the news broke and continuous airing on local TV, we were pretty shaken. That lasted a while even after he was in custody. His home was not far away off Cumberland Dr. I think best to bury the memory once again.
