Straight out of the he's-such-a-nice-guy-file, Johnny liked to dress in a homemade Pogo The Clown outfit to entertain the kids. This lonely and sadistic contractor also liked to entertain young boys privately in a very different fashion. The prototypical organized killer, he had all aspects of the murder worked out before each kill. Once he entered his murderous fantasy, there was no turning back.
He enjoyed handcuffing his victims, anally raping them, beating them to pulp, offering to make them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, reciting verses from the Bible and strangling them to death. In 1978 the police in Chicago tracked him down. Thirty bodes were found buried in the crawl space underneath his house, explaining his wife's complaints about the constant stench in their home. As a prisoner, Johnny Boy started a new career as an artist, painting mostly colorful clown pictures, which have been showin in galleries nationwide. He was executed by lethal injection in 1994.
