Dead Boys is a 1700-word short story about the days leading up to police discovering John Wayne Gacy's crimes, as told by the ghost of a young man he had murdered. While the story itself is fiction, the details of the case and how the police came to suspect Gacy was a killer are as close to factual as could be found in several reputable sources.
This is the first short story of a series of short stories Sara Bushway plans to release as promotional material leading up to the release of a short story compilation in October 2022. All of the short stories will be based on information from the most accurate sources but framed in fiction for the enjoyment of the reader.
Be sure to keep an eye out at the end of each month for more releases from Sara Bushway from her upcoming short story publication, Watch.
