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.
In Gacy’s early life he was the victim of his father’s scorn being beaten constantly by his father with a razor strop. A couple instances know would be when he stole a truck when he was 6 and his father beat him for it, one other told instance of abuse was when John and another boy were accused of molesting a little girl where his father again beat him with his trusty strop. However it wasn’t just physical abuse he was given his father also emotionally abused him calling him a failure telling him he was dumb and stupid. Gacy was an ill boy born with a heart defect leading him to be hospitalized most of his life from ages 14 to 18, where his father accused him of faking everything. The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence.
My research will include studying the early childhood of notorious psychopaths, such as; John Wayne Gacy Jr. He was born to submissive mother and to a father who is both an alcoholic and an abuser. Gacy and his siblings would be physically assaulted whenever his father thought that he or his siblings were misbehaving. Gacy became a serial rapist and killer of young men as the result
George suspects the cheating, but never truly discovers what is going on before she dies. Tom lied to George as well in order to keep his affair secret. He then ends up saving himself and killing Gatsby by blaming Myrtle 's death on Gatsby in the quote, ”He ran over Myrtle like you 'd run over a dog and never even stopped his car" (178). He explains this here, “There was nothing I could say, except the one unutterable fact that it wasn 't true” (178). Over time, the consequences begin to take effect on George and his mental health goes downhill due to the shadieness of the upper class.
He tried acquiring more slaves but they went against him. Weeks later, Nat was still being looked for by whites all around for a prize. He was hiding behind a tree and poked his head out to find a shotgun aimed right at
Poe uses this to help express the true feelings and intentions of the narrator when he talks about killing the old man and has the old man's heart drive him to confession. Poe also uses different types of irony which helps plays a very important role in The Cask of Amontillado as well. "I had told them that I should not return until the morning and had given them explicit orders not to stir from the house. These orders were sufficient, I well knew, to insure their immediate disappearance , one and all, as soon as my back was turned." (line 24) These instructions from Montersor to his servants demonstrated his mastery of human psychology, Montresor knew they were not going to stay and it was all apart of his plan, which brings the irony into play.
John tries to avoid his father and gets in an argument with Grace where he calls her a snob. If you let your fears and worries control your actions you are going to hurt people close to you. Both Grace and Smitty suffered the backlash of the protagonist’s actions. It was neither of their fault but they had to face the consequences all the same. Smitty and Grace aren’t similar at all in appearance or character, but that lends to the unjust treatment.
Nick also notices that Daisy and Tom had disappeared right after Gatsby’s death. Daisy and Tom were wealthy enough to move out of Long Island, while they made everyone else solve the problem that they had left behind. It is easy for rich people to become weak and only focus on

“James Gatz – that was really, or at least legally, his name. He had changed it at the age of seventeen and at the specific moment that witnessed the beginning of his career – when he saw Dan Cody's yacht drop anchor over the most insidious flat on Lake Superior.” (63). At 17 he understood what is was like to be poor and work hard to gain things in life but once he got with Dan Cody and saw the rich life he completely lost that. The worst part is Gatsby isn’t even on the top of the social class, Tom and Daisy are and they have even fewer morals. People like Nick and Mr. Wilson are who are further down the class ranking have more morals but are nowhere near a respectable
