ILLINOIS: Homey the Clown


Throughout the suburbs of Chicago in the ’90s, there was a rumor going around elementary schools: There was a creepy man dressed as Homey the Clown (yes, from “In Living Color“), driving around in a white van trying to lure kids into it with candy and money.

In some variations he was a kidnapper, in others he was a rapist. But in all variations, Homey left a mark on young Chicago kids in the ’90s.
