It’s hard to imagine anything more horrific than American Horror Story’s disfigured clown Twisty or Stephen King’s Pennywise, but as deeply unsettling as that fiction is, the truth that inspired it is so much worse. Believe it or not, there’s a root to this evil, and its name was Pogo.
You might know him as John Wayne Gacy, a monstrous criminal who was convicted for the murder of 33 young men. Gacy's actions were so vile that, in a very real sense, he scarred our psyches and changed our perceptions of clowns forever.
This is the story of how John Wayne Gacy turned clowns into nightmare fuel.
