Gacy investigator to speak Oct. 16 at NIU

October 1, 2013

Book cover of “The Chicago Killer”Lt. Joseph Kozenczak, a  retired Des Plaines police officer, will visit NIU to talk about his work as lead investigator on the John Wayne Gacy case.

Kozenczak will speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Room 100 of the Campus Life Building.

Hosted by the Exploring Majors House, this free event is open to the public and especially to anyone interested in law enforcement who would like to meet and hear the retired lead investigator and arresting officer in the Gacy case.

“The Exploring Majors House hosts events that bring in people from different careers to speak to students” said Megan Kozenczak, graduate assistant for the Exploring Majors House. “Det. Joe Kozenczak remembers the case like it was yesterday and is looking forward to speaking to students.”

NIU’s Exploring Majors House helps students who have not declared a major as well as those who are exploring academic options.

Part of the Academic Advising Center, it was established in 2004 to work specifically with students who are undecided about their majors.

The Academic Advising Center works with “undecided-any college” students from the time they arrive on campus during orientation until they’ve made informed major choices, providing a variety of services to help students achieve their personal, academic and career goals at NIU. The student-centered staff advises students as they develop meaningful academic plans compatible with their educational and life goals.
