    Ted Szal sits with his dog at his home Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011, in Beaverton, Ore. Szal says he had no idea that his family back in the Chicago area feared he may have been killed by serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Fifty-nine-year-old Ted Szal told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he parked his car at Chicago's O'Hare airport 35 years ago, threw his keys away and got on a plane to Colorado Springs. He says he abandoned his relatives after the turmoil of a divorce and a bitter family feud. He's struggled emotionally with the decision, but was too stubborn to make contact again. Police found Szal living in Beaverton, Ore. Szal's older sister had contacted the Cook County Sheriff's Office in October after authorities asked for tips to help identify eight unknown Gacy victims whose bodies were recently exhumed.
