Watch out for the fake Gacy pieces which seem to be flooding the market over the past week.  It appears that more non authentic Gacy items are being offered for sale.  Drawings of an electric chair, Ronald McDonald and Jeffrey Dahmer which were NOT done by John Wayne Gacy. 

It is disheartening that someone who knows better would try to pass these off as original Gacy drawings.  Gacy did NOT do these!  John Gacy painted, he rarely ever drew.  His paintings were done in oil and some in acrylic.  These originally appeared on eBay about 15 years ago.  They weren’t real then and they are not real now.  
As with most anything, if it seems to be good to be true, it probably is.  Have you ever seen one of these color drawings include an envelope?  Have you ever seen any letter from Gacy in which he mentions doing marker drawings?  Compare the signatures of these to his letters and paintings.  There are also several copies of his book, “More Letters to Mr. Gacy” which appear for sale that are signed in marker but were not signed by him.

Seattle woman brings groper to justice with one tweet 

Julia Marquand was shopping in downtown Seattle on Oct. 12 when a man began following her closely, then reached out and grabbed her butt.  
Instead of ignoring it, however, Marquand took the issue into her own hands. Thinking quickly, she snapped pictures of her attacker on her phone and reported the incident to the police, she told KING 5 News.

"Pip and Flip- Twins from the Yucatan" were actually Jenny Lee and Elvira Snow from Georgia.
They suffered from microcephaly, characterised by abnormally small craniums which gave rise at the time to the term “pinhead”. Like most microcephaly sufferers the Snow sisters were mentally retarded, but although based at Coney Island, they also travelled with the World Circus Sideshow for many years.
You might recognize them in Tod Browning’s 1932 film “Freaks”. (x)

Cynthia Coffman was a serial killer who, together with her partner James Gregory Marlow, kidnapped, raped and murdered four women in the period of a month in 1986.
Coffman was smitten with Marlow, who she met after leaving a loveless marriage she had been forced into after she became pregnant at the age of 17. Marlow had been a thief since he was 10 years old, and had a long criminal history for robberies and similar crimes when he met Coffman in 1986. 
The pair originally started off committing robberies together, which eventually progressed to the kidnapping and murder of women who they picked up off the streets, their decomposing corpses discovered by police, sometimes in shallow graves and sometimes left behind in motel rooms. 
The pair of them married prior to their murder spree, with Coffman marking the occasion by getting a tattoo on her buttocks that read:

I belong to the Folsom Wolf. That done, they drifted west again, in search of easy prey.

Ray’s Sausage was accused of emanating fouls smells from his sausage factory turned out to be the demise of 11 women decaying next door at Anthony Sowell’s house.
"It’s not just the jokes and the nasty things people say about the  company. And it’s not just the money we spent trying to figure out where  the odor was coming from. It’s the fact that the city said they would  assist us in a move away from this spot," said Ray Cash Jr.
The company, which was constantly inspected and once cited by the  USDA for failure to control “odors and vapors,” spent slightly more than  $20,000 between late 2005 and the summer of 2009 replacing the  facility’s grease trap and internal plumbing. It’s spent several  thousand more on bleach, industrial sprays, incense and candles.
But in the end, it was paying for the stench of someone else’s  treachery. And its owners would like – and they deserve – help with a  fresh start.
