John Wayne Gacy Jr. (Killer Clown) Case Study

Handwriting is brain writing, and therefore the prints that you leave on paper reveal a lot about you and your behavior. It is like an inner photograph of your thoughts and is as unique as your fingerprints. Though handwriting analysis alone cannot convict a criminal, it is used to study criminals’ psychological states. This technique is used with other psychological assessment techniques by forensic investigators to decipher the true personality and mental health of the culprit and learn deeply about the actual reason behind the crime.

By studying their handwriting samples, investigators can learn about the mental and emotional personality traits responsible for their aggressive behavior, which results in monstrous criminal activities.

One such case was that of John Wayne Gacy Jr. He was an American serial killer and rapist, known by the name Killer Clown. Between 1972 and 1978, he was found responsible for assaulting and murdering 33 young boys and men.

Due to various unpleasant childhood incidents, especially getting ignored by his father and being molested by a family friend, he grew up with violent and bisexual tendencies, bringing his marriages to an end.

During the trial, his handwriting sample was studied, and several traits that correspond to his current mental state were reflected.

A few of the traits were:

Extremely narrow left margins and congested writing, leaving very little space on the page, represented no space for others in his life.

Rightward slant represented his inability to control his emotions.

Reduced letter spacing represented self-centeredness.

Large gap between words and relatively normal spacing between lines represented his inability to trust others easily and his loneliness.

Thread-like middle zone letters represented his inability to present his best self.

Sharp and pointed upper zone loops filled with ink, low in length, and closed represented his curious and confused mind.

Elongated lower zone loops out of which a few turned to the right instead of left and were hooked, representing his restless behavior and urge for physical activities.

Angular arcade-style writing with average speed and pressure represented his strong determination and aggressive behavior.

But the most noticeable feature was PASTOCITY. The writing was heavy and smudged, and it did show several signs of confusion.

A few other traits were hooked beginning strokes, capital letters written within words or at places where not required, and malformation of certain letters.

When this information was interpreted from a graphological point of view, it was deciphered that he had issues while living as per society norms but could fake living like them. However, beyond this was a highly disturbed and confused person who often lost control and was in constant need to satisfy his hidden and deep urges, making him violent and a major reason for committing such heinous crimes. He was short-tempered and aggressive but got defeated by his sadistic tendencies.

Note: This is only a glimpse of one of a few case studies that we might cover. All case studies are subject to change as per current trends and developments, except a few famous ones from the past.
