Critics: Haunted house's 'Gacy room' insensitive

The Associated Press

VILLA PARK, Ill. (AP) Two former prosecutors who helped convict John Wayne Gacy say a room dedicated to the serial killer in rock star/film director Rob Zombie's haunted house in suburban Chicago is insensitive to the families of Gacy's victims.

Attorney Terry Sullivan says the "Gacy room" in the Villa Park attraction is in "terrible taste."

Law professor Robert Egan says many of Gacy's victims were from the area and that the haunted house was causing pain to their family members who still live in the area.

The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/1oXAh5w ) reports that Zombie has described the room as "funny" in media interviews.

Gacy murdered 33 young men in the 1970s and stashed many of their bodies under his house. He was executed in 1994.
