Serial killer Dean Allen Corll tortured and murdered over 28 young men, after paying his buddies, Elmer Henley and David Brooks, to procure these young male victims.
Henley finally shot and killed Corll, after Corll threatened to kill him for bringing a girl along with a boy one night. Henley and Brooks were both sentenced to life.
Corll was also known as the Candy Man and the Pied Piper, because he and his family had owned and operated a candy factory in Houston Heights, and he had been known to give free candy to local children.
At the time of their discovery, the Houston Mass Murders were considered the worst example of serial murder in American history.
