When Dr. Sharon Derrick was a teenager she watched the horror of Houston's Mass murders unfold on her family's television in Austin, Texas. She watched, as the world did, Houston and Pasadena police detectives remove one body after another from a boat storage shed in southwest Houston.
The boat shed was revealed as Dean Corll’s private cemetery where, after sadistically torturing and raping his victims, their nude bodies were wrapped in plastic, bound with rope, covered with lime and placed in shallow graves.
This was a feature story in the print edition of The Police News. Barbara Gibson was an investigative reporter for The Police News and did extensive research on the subject of the Houston mass murders including an interview with convicted killer Elmer Wayne Henley inside a Texas prison.
This is just a part of her extensive report.
