Dart again tries for Gacy dig

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

by MICHAEL SNEED

The Gacy case . . .

Sneed hears Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, who is getting a reputation for exhuming skeletons and finding misplaced cemetery bodies, has submitted a NEW warrant request to search the backyard of a Northwest side apartment building where the mother of serial killerJohn Wayne Gacy lived.

? Buckshot: Sheriff Dart’s original request to examine the site in the 6100 block of West Miami Avenue was denied earlier this year by Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, who claimed Dart did not have probable cause to produce evidence of a crime — a k a Gacy victims — to obtain a warrant.

? Upshot: Dart’s current request has yet to be turned down. “It’s not just sitting on her [Alvarez’s] desk — it’s being seriously considered,” said a Sneed source. The downside: The warrant was submitted at least two weeks ago, and Dart is still waiting for a reply.

? Backshot: A tip by a retired Chicago cop, who claimed he saw Gacy digging in a yard with a shovel at 3 a.m. during the 1970s prompted “a police dig” on that site in 1998 — which turned up nothing. Sneed is told Dart believes the police did a shoddy job at the time — and wants to see if the site contains “a missing piece to the Gacy puzzle.”

Stay tuned.

Political softball . . .

That explains the pant suits! Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle recently led her office softball team to its second championship in the Governmental League — while wearing her work clothes.

? For the win: Preckwinkle bats, plays second base and catcher for her team. She got her trophy at Tuesday’s Cook County Board meeting.
