  • The A&E investigative crime series – THE ELEVEN – comes to a conclusion this week with a revealing interview with convicted prisoner, Ed Bell, that has led to the investigation being reopened. Galveston County DA Investigator JJ Freeze and Texas City Detective Ernie Robles have reopened the case into the deaths of Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson, two of the so-called “Eleven”, following new information obtained in a prison interview between Ed Bell and journalist Lise Olsen. In the interview Bell admits that he had the two girls in his van the day they disappeared. “Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson. They came running and jumped in my van. They said they had a teacher’s meeting that day. There was no school.  One of them, the bigger of the two told me she had seen me at Doug’s surf shop. And that’s why they came running and jumped in my van, she said. They let me know right away that they wanted me to jump in bed with them, they told me. They said, “We tired of those young kids over at Ball High.” They said, “We want you to f**k us.” I said, “You’ve jumped in the right guy’s van.” The two girls were never seen alive again.
  • Convicted murderer, Ed Bell was up for parole this autumn, but as a result of the series, and the case being reopened, the appeal was turned down. 
  • Investigators Fred Paige and Lise Olsen have received many new leads as a result of the series and are working on them with a view to finally proving Ed Bell’s confession that he killed eleven girls.


This series was extremely well done! We are so happy to know that this psycho will NOT receive parole this time. Hopefully, with new evidence and with Texas City finally stepping up to participate in the investigation, Bell may never see the light of day again!!
