Abstract (Document Summary)

Before a throng gathered in the ballroom of a suburban hotel, Eyler's attorney read a roll call Tuesday of 21 young men and boys-a list of victims compiled by Eyler more than three years before his death Sunday in prison.

Eyler, convicted of the 1984 dismemberment slaying of a Chicago boy, admitted to killing 17 other young men and boys by himself and participating in the murders of another four with an unnamed accomplice a decade ago, according to Eyler's lawyer, Kathleen Zellner.

Eyler, 41, began drawing up the list of his victims in 1990 in an attempt to escape execution, but the state would not agree to a deal. Shortly before his death of AIDS-related complications in Pontiac Correctional Center, Eyler agreed to allow his lawyer to release names of the victims and details of their murders.
