Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart today announced a 41 year old New Jersey missing person's case has been solved as a result of the on-going investigation to identify the unnamed victims of serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Sheriff Dart says while testing confirmed no genetic association between a female relative of Steven Soden and any of Gacy's unidentified victims, her profile did match unidentified skeletal remains found 13 years ago in New Jersey, which were confirmed to be that of the missing 16 year old, who was last seen alive running away from a Burlington County campground in April of 1973. Sheriff Dart says relatives had thought the teen may have headed to Chicago where his biological father lived, and may have come into contact with Gacy.
