During the 1970s, thousands of teenage boys went missing across North America. Some returned home, others disappeared without a trace. And some were brutally murdered by two of the era’s most prolific serial killers—John Wayne Gacy, the Killer Clown, and Dean Corll, the Candyman. More than 60 young men died by their hands. Seven remain unidentified. The Clown and the Candyman follows investigators today as they try to identify their remaining victims and wonder: Are there more victims?
The four-part series reveals never-heard-before tapes of Gacy and uncovers a hidden web of pedophiles operating throughout America—many with money and influence. One of its masterminds, John Norman, lived his life in the shadows, but his organization may have links to both the Clown and the Candyman.
