Investigators identified the remains just a few miles from serial killer John Wayne Gacy's house. They also say they know the identity of his now-deceased killer. The discovery was the result of an ongoing effort to name several unidentified victims of Gacy, who was executed in 1994.

FILE - This 1978 file photo shows serial killer John Wayne Gacy. The case of John Wayne Gacy has helped authorities solve another slaying, one that he didn’t commit. The Cook County Sheriff’s Office is scheduled to announce Wednesday, April 23, 2014, they have identified the remains found in a forest preserve in 2008 as those of 22-year-old Edward Beaudion of Chicago. Beaudion was identified after his relatives came forward to submit DNA samples as part of the effort to identify several of Gacy’s 1970s victims. Authorities believe Missouri resident Jerry Jackson killed Beaudion in 1978. But without a body at the time, they never charged him. Jackson died last year at age 62. (AP Photo/File)

This photo taken Nov. 30, 2012, in Chicago shows three vials of mass murderer John Wayne Gacy's blood recently discovered by Cook County Sheriff's detective Jason Moran. The sheriff’s office is creating DNA profiles from the blood of Gacy and other executed killers and putting them in a national DNA database of profiles created from blood, semen, or strands of hair found at crime scenes and on the bodies of victims. What they hope to find is evidence that links the long-dead killers to the coldest of cold cases and prompt authorities in other states to submit the DNA of their own executed inmates and maybe evidence from decades-old crime scenes to help them solve their own cases.

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.
