Once Gacy sexually assaulted his victims, he buried them in his backyard. Gacy’s method of luring his victims into his home was by promising his victims job opportunities. Since Gacy was a well-known active community member, Gacy’s victims were found to be easily lured into his home because he was the owner of his own construction company. In addition to promoting “job opportunities,” Gacy placed many of his victims in handcuffs leading them to believe that he was performing a magic trick. This method appeared relatively convincing to Gacy’s victims considering that Gacy was also known to be a clown performer at children’s parties.

Every time the children talk about the Jack-in-the-box, it is grey days. The children are making stories about the Jack-in-the-box and his personality, such as him being an evil wizard or that his box is a Pandora’s box and that Jack is there as a guardian to prevent all the bad things from coming out (page 72, lines 3-8).
