We finally have closure in the vexing half century mystery about the disappearance of three Hannibal boys in the spring of 1967. The new edition of Souls Speak, now available on Amazon, has the astonishing conclusion of this terrible tragedy.
Serial killer John Wayne Gacy revealed his just-discovered confession to a friend the evening of May 9, 1994 just a few hours before he was executed in Illinois. It’s a riveting read about the sad final hours of the boys lives.
We pray this news brings some closure in the case. Alas, the boys were not lost in a cave beneath their southside neighborhood. Evil came to town and took them.
Here’s the audio from my November 13 interview with Jim Dewey of WTAD radio in Quincy Illinois. Go 9:30 in to hear the twenty minute interview.
A former TV news colleague has written an inciteful review about my new book – Souls Speak – the most astonishing true story you will ever read.
Here’s former WRAU-TV News Director Gary Reagen’s review:
“I was a journalist working in TV news in the years when that monster, John Wayne Gacy, the so-called “Killer Clown”, was so often headline news. Many people in the justice system and elsewhere reportedly believed that Gacy was never held to account for all his crimes; there were so many unanswered questions.
When I read John Wingate’s first book, “Lost Boys of Hannibal”, I was fascinated by the heroic efforts of so many would-be rescuers but also troubled by the unanswered questions “Lost Boys” raised – including the possibility that they were victims of a criminal, not a cave in.
Wingate’s follow-up book, “Souls Speak,” is a chiller. It is troubling squared. Count me a skeptic when it comes to psychics and mediums. Count me a skeptic, too, of anyone who claims we know the full truth about Gacy’s full list of horrors. But after reading this book … well, best have an open mind about whether this is a long-cold case or whether it offers new and accessible evidence. Highly recommended.”
We’ll soon be announcing the date and time for a September book signing event at Quincy Books, 3800 Broadway, Quincy, Illinois.
Here’s the interview I did about my new book Souls Speak with the Rivertown Review podcast. Thanks to hosts Harold Smith and Megan Rapp!
Here’s the link to the interview I did recently with the Colorado-based podcast Paranormal Prowlers. We discuss Souls Speak and my previous book Lost Boys of Hannibal.
“John Wingate is a potent storyteller. John’s strong journalistic ethic is the main asset to “Souls Speak”. It is a compelling mass murder story with unlikely heroes. The research is as solid as a rock and his prose makes it an all night read.” Jerry Giesler, KPAX-TV
