CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- One of the most notorious killers in history is the subject of a CNN special report later tonight. WBBM spoke with the prosecutor who wouldn't accept John Wayne Gacy's initial claim of being mentally unfit for trial.

Terry Sullivan wrote the initial search warrants for John Wayne Gacy's Norwood Park home.

As the evidence was being delivered to the police department, he says investigators were saying, "What are we on to? No one would ever believe this."

Gacy was a businessman and had few words for police, except to say that he had multiple personalities. John was a good man, a businessman and Jack was a killer. 

Sullivan was successful in getting Gacy found to be fit to stand trial.  He was ultimately convicted, served 14 years on death row before being executed in 1994. To this day, a certain number of victims are yet unidentified.

Thirty three victims in all, police discovered stacked bodies in the crawl space. And Sullivan thinks there are more than 33 victims who have yet to be discovered.
