John Wayne Gacy: 1978 Murder Mystery Solved

John Wayne Gacy probe helps solve 1978 murder mystery. the Father and daughter ventured into the woods and planted a cross into the ground where the body of the daughter’s sibling must have been. Ruth Rodriquez has finally gained the satisfaction of knowing who killed her brother so many years ago. And one thing is for sure. It was not the serial killer John Wayne Gacy

“I don’t have words to even describe it,” 62 years old Rodriguez told Sun-Times. “It’s happiness and sadness together. I’ll never get any answer for that and neither will my dad. But at least putting the cross out there, we have somewhere where we can go and pray and connect with my brother.”

Edward Beaudion, Rodriquez’s brother had vanished without a trace in 1978. While Rodriquez is happy that the case has finally been solved, she is also sad that her brother was killed in cold blood. 

Edward’s bones had been discovered about six years ago by a family out for a walk in the area. When he disappeared in 1978 while going for a drive in his car, exactly three months later police apprehended a man named Jackson who was driving Edward’s car. 

The surprising thing was that Jackson himself confessed to getting in an argument with Edward and killing him. He even pointed out the area where he had dumped Edward’s body. But way back in 1978, the methods of recovering bodies from muddy ground were not so sophisticated. 

The police scoured the area but were unable to find Edward’s remains. Jackson was taken into custody for stealing Edward’s car and put behind bars for four years. 

Meanwhile, it was only later on when DNA testing became common that it was found that John Wayne Gacy, who had killed victims who were about the same age as Edward, was not the suspected killer. The family has heaved a sigh of relief. 

“This is something that took place under the previous administration and the previous medical examiner,” said Frank Shuftan, a spokesman for the the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. “Since 2012, [Cook County Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina] has made it a priority to try to get some of these cases resolved through the DNA technology.”

Ruth Rodriquez went in front of the press to say that her brother loved children and even visited an orphanage once dressed up as Dracula. She really missed him and recounted sadly how his mother had died without knowing about the whereabouts of her son.    

“My mom went to her grave in 2001 not knowing where my brother was, and she always felt — and I did too — that maybe one day he would come home, but not this way,” Rodriguez said.
