He was forced to lie to his young, telling him that he was saving the womens' souls.
He would pay the women, have sex with them and then strangle them. He would redress their bodies and dump them along the bank of the Green River.
The police had questioned him at one time, but believed his innocence.
After the close call with the police and because of some graphic and horrific nightmares he was having about his body being autopsied and cut up, he decided to stop after making one last kill.
Twenty years later, after the state police crime lab matched the DNA on several of the dead bodies to Gary, the police finally arrested him.
Gary confessed in great detail and led police to some bodies that had never been found. Although he claimed that there were about eighty or ninety victims, he was charged for the murders of the forty-eight known murders. He was sentenced to forty-eight consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.
