David Gecht signed letter envelope set


Three men, including the son of a rapist linked to a series of ritualistic serial murders in the Chicago area nearly 20 years ago,were convicted of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of a Northwest Side man.

David A. Gecht, 18; Richard Kwil, 19; and Ruben Hernandez, 27, all of Chicago, were charged in the death of Roberto Cruz, 35, of the 4000 block of North Richmond Street, who was shot Jan. 29 while he was approaching his car on the Northwest Side.

Police say Gecht is the son of Robin Gecht, who is serving 120 years in Menard Correctional Center for mutilating and raping an 18-year-old prostitute in 1982 on the Northwest Side.

Though Robin Gecht, who once worked for serial killer John Wayne Gacy, was never convicted of murder, authorities believed that he and three associates, Edward Spreitzer and brothers Andrew and Thomas Kokoraleis, were responsible for the disappearances of 17 women.

The gruesome murders involved cult rituals and mutilation or removal of the victims' breasts. Though Robin Gecht's associates and other witnesses implicated him in some of the deaths, investigators never had enough evidence to charge him with murder.

The envelope is handwritten. The letter is signed, David.
