Person once believed a victim of Gacy alive
October 26, 2011 (WLS) -- A man thought to be one of John Wayne Gacy's victims has been located in Florida.
According to ABC7 Chicago news partner Daily Herald, family members last heard from Harold Wayne Lovell about 33 years ago.
He told family members he was heading to Aurora for a construction job. He never returned and his family thought he had probably crossed paths with Gacy.
Instead, Lovell left home because of a battle with his stepfather.
Family members stumbled across the fact he was alive when they were getting ready to submit a DNA sample.
Earlier this month, the Cook County Sheriff's Office opened a probe into the eight remaining unidentified Gacy victims.
