Little did Moss realize he was playing with fire; in his bid to manipulate Gacy into divulging untold details about his notorious murder spree, the probing student granted his twisted subject unprecedented access to his own fragile psyche – a fateful misstep that eventually cost the author his life when he committed suicide in June of 2006.
