This undated photo provided by the Cook County Sheriff's Department shows victims remains of serial killer John Wayne Gacy being exhumed by authorities. The Cook County Sheriff's Department last spring secretly exhumed the bones of the 8 victims who were never identified in the hopes that scientific tests that were not around between 1972 and 1978 when Gacy killed his 33 victims will make identification possible.
