Serial Killer John Wayne Gacy’s Clown Self-Portrait Sold To Zak Bagans
It’s scary, even for Zak Bagans … he is the new owner of John Wayne Gacyprison art, a potentially haunted transport that includes a spooky Killer Clown self-portrait.
The “Ghost Adventures” star tells TMZ … that he bought a bunch of paintings of the serial killer from prison, as well as some letters Gacy sent to her stepdaughter … and the themes of clown are not unexpected but still striking.
Known as the Killer Clown, Gacy was executed in 1994 after being convicted of murdering 33 young men and boys in the 1970s, burying most of the corpses in a crawl space under his Chicago-area home.
As you can see, Gacy painted himself as a clown behind bars and sent the self portrait to her stepdaughter, Tammy hoff, as well as letters decorated with clown stickers.
Zak tells us that Tammy, who lives near his haunted museum in Vegas, recently contacted him to sell the items. Zak says Tammy lived with Gacy in Illinois during the murders, but didn’t know her stepfather was a serial killer.
Along with the weird art and letters, Zak also bought one of the last Polaroids Gacy broke, along with her last pack of cigarettes before being executed.
Zak says Gacy’s art and letters piqued his interest because they portray Gacy as a loving stepfather, despite the murder of 33 people. The items will be on display in his museum’s True Crime exhibit, alongside other serial killer items.
Our sincere thanks to
