Abbye learned to speak Croatian at a young age with her step-grandfather who took a boat across the sea to come to the United States when he was fourteen years old. Her sense of family and missing the old times with her grandfather prompted her to write her first book about a Croatian motorcycle club in the US.

#AtoZChallenge #Theme #SerialKillers J


John Wayne Gacy liked to dress in a homemade Pogo the Clown outfit to entertain kids. Gacy was thought of as a generous, hard-working, charismatic man who was devoted to both his family and community. As is true with many serial killers, other than his victims, few witnessed the evil within. In the end, he became known as a ‘killer clown’ due to the time he donated to charitable services at fundraising events, children’s parties and parades where he would dress in the character costume he devised himself.  A true serial killer, Gacy was a lonely and sadistic contractor who liked to entertain young boys privately in a sick and twisted way. The final count for his viciousness came in at 33 teenage boys and young men he viciously tortured, raped and murdered between the years 1972 and 1978.

  2. Gacy was truly frightening. Serial killers are bad, but pedophile serial killers are the worst. Great post!
